Summary: 0.6.5 - XB1 - Half of planet is unusable (can't interact with items) Description: In half my world, I can't interact with items, items don't snap to other items like they do on the other half of the planet. Platform: XBox One Version / Build Number: 0.6.5 On the non-working half of my planet, interaction seems to work as it should. Move the same object (platform, rover, storage, etc) and the object doesn't operate properly. In this save, my hab just happened to land on the bad half of the planet. I believe this is why the hab in this save produces NO POWER as it has in other saves since patch. I tried generating power on a platform and feeding power TO the hab. But the other power ports on the hab don't exude that power and remain dark. This is a NEW SAVE after the 0.6.5 patch. So there is nothing from prior patches. Its a fresh clean new save. I spoke about a "meridian" on reddit that I discovered. I recorded some video explaining what I discovered. Its damn hard to describe the issue in words but once you view the videos, I think its fairly clear what the problem is that I am trying to describe. The basic gist is that half my world doesn't allow me to select items with the pointer. It doesn't matter whether I am underground or on the surface. Items do not snap to other objects such as storage, platforms and rovers. Power connectors don't snap properly either. I also found that I can literally push a large rover around by simply running into it. This only seems to happen on the bad half of the planet. The rover is immovable on the normal half of the planet and can't be pushed by the astroneer. I laid out beacons (colored green for reference) along the meridian that demarcates the working and non-working half. Here is a video showing my method of placing the beacons. Notice how the compass appears and disappears and interaction with items in the backpack works and then doesn't as I move into and out of the non-working zone. This video shows the established line of beacons and how the bisect the planet apparently from the north pole to the south, although I didn't go all the way south but the pattern is fairly obvious. I did go to the north pole to establish a power production facility and thats when I finally realized what was going on with the working-non-working areas. Also note that the one near the hab got accidentally moved so its out of line with the rest. That was my bad. When I recorded this following video I had not realized quite yet what was going on with the work/no-work zone. It shows how the rovers refuse to couple in the non-working zone. At first I thought the power coupling was broken. But I found out its not the coupling, its WHERE the rovers are thats the problem. Simply moving the rovers to the other side of this meridian I discovered allows you to snap things to them and allows them to couple together.
