  1. Basically, I have just spent the last 30-60 mins collecting a ton of organic and compound on Calidor. I dug a very small dent next to my shuttle to keep it in, because I landed next to a cave, and I didn't want them to accidentally get knocked in. I leave to get some resin, just a little bit out of the loading zone, and when I come back, most of it has disappeared! There is still some there, but for example, I had probably 10-15 compound, and there was only one left. I tried digging down, to see if maybe there was a cave underneath that they glitched into, but it was just solid ground for awhile. I looked around the general area and could not find them anywhere. I have no idea where they went! I have spent some time on Sylva and Desolo before this, doing the same tactic, but have never had this problem before. I do usually play with one other person, but they were not online at this time, so there was no one else in the server at the time this happened. I play on Steam with a mouse and keyboard. Hopefully this helps.
  2. From the onset, we collected many resources, and quickly it became a problem to manage all the resource units we had collected. They would get dumped at base and become a trip hazard. So you start making storage units - which quickly grew to be storage farms. But even that quickly became a headache. Where did we put that titanium alloy? Why is the hydrogen there, there, and there? Here are some ideas for managing resources. 1. A storage sorter console. The console could be plugged into a storage port, and when clicked upon, would present a display showing all the resources plugged into that storage unit. It would show a count for each resource. Click a button and all the resources would re-group in the storage unit to be grouped together. This would be scalable for when multiple storage units are plugged into a platform. 2. A collection chooser. With a rover equipped with a drill - and available storage - one can quickly collect anything, and EVERYTHING. Accidentally drove through all that organic? Now your storage is full of organic. What is needed is a console that allows one to choose which resources to collect, and which to avoid. With that, one could go for a drive and get just the specific resources needed. 3. A resource direction finder. Want some graphite? Drove past some awhile back; but which direction was it? A resource direction finder would solve that.
  3. The first bug found is with the achievements related to collecting/smelting/etc all possible resources, which does not give a trophy in the PS system. I have went out and made sure it was not a personal error by doing over everything I believed was collected/smelted/etc. The second bug is with the suits and color palettes related to activating the core of a planet, which does not unlock even after a restart. This is isolated to certain achievements because I received the suit for locating the Kepler Telescope. The third bug found is with the progress of the Project CHEER Request Platform, which deletes any progress after exiting the game and reloading. The second bug did give a PS trophy.
  4. Ok. Me and my brother @Mister Chicken0 have been playing for about 3 weeks now and have explored Sylva, Desolo, and Novus. But we have one big problem. We need steel for many things but we don’t want to explore a fully new planet just to get it. Is there any way we can get steel without having to go to another planet?
  5. When you are standing on downill slope (steeper one), facing down, and rear end of your terrain tool (where resources gathers), is touching trerrain or is slightly below terrain slope level at that spot, when ammount of mined resource fill up to one stack and fall-off (=backpack full) in this case this resource fall through terrain, or to be precise under level of surface, where it cannot be found again (after digging on same spot afterwards).
  6. Hello Devs, Let me begin by commending you on a wonderful game. It’s original and very entertaining. I’ve owned Astroneer since it was first available on Xbox. The new additions th I the game are all most welcome and have reignited my passion for playing. I am however experiencing some issues that I hope can be easily resolved. I’ll try to be brief and thorough. 1. Game crashes. I am experiencing game crashes while entering vehicles and I believe am know why. I make extensive use of the drill and paver to navigate practically everywhere. This has led to me leaving quite a trail of leftover resources from in my wake as I go. These resources remain and are building up in amounts and persist indefinitely. I believe that the game making the effort to save each of these individual leftovers every time an enter a vehicle are causing the crashes. The crashes are becoming more and more frequent as my progress through the planets goes on. And the size of my save in terms of memory is very quickly increasing. I am really hoping that I don’t have to abandon this play through when I am so close to finishing. My suggestion is to have the game delete or at least not save any items not either attached to a structural item, your backpack, or their original environmental position. This deletion could occur each time a save is loaded or each time a logout from a save occurs. 2. Vehicle paver functionality. I am noticing that as I pave my vehicle and character gets stuck on the new ground as if there is an obstacle even though there isn’t. I have no suggestion for this but wanted to include it. It’s only an annoyance. 3. Drill Functionality As I am drilling and paving my way along I find a myself getting stuck a lot on resources ejected by the drill which end up under my vehicle and trailers. It helps a lot that I can point the ejector to the side and an think if the resources were ejected with just a bit more force they would clear the side of my vehicle much more often allowing me to maintain a straighter path. 4. Pathing while using the drill and pager. I find it difficult at times to drive my vehicle while tracking the terrain and using the drill and paver simotaniously particularly while I am towing multiple trailers behind me. By that I mean since the elevation for the paver is controlled by the camera the paver elevation is often obscured by the vehicle itself especially while tunneling underground. My suggestion for this would be to link an up and down function to the left and right bumper buttons and to move the on off function of the pager to another unused button like X or AThis way I can maneuver the third person camera without affecting the elevation and allow me to see where I am going. 5. A small request. A compass function for the vehicles would make navigation so much quicker and easier and I would thank you greatly. Just at the top of the screen perhaps. Thank you all so much for your kind attention.
  7. Not sure what direction the game is taking. Like many new developers, they seem to take their cue from core players. Also like many new developers, they begin changing the very things that made it Unique and enjoyable to the core players. I would offer this penny wisdom. When you hear that your core players want things to be "harder" or "more challenging" you are making it that way for everyone, including brand new players. Many of the same players who ask for the difficulty and challenges will later ask for “quality of life" items. In terms of development hours, you are making it hard, then creating all new "and a growing" lists of artifacts to offset the grind or Difficulty. Every time these changes are made, you'll hear "well that's great, but still not quite right" or "they did this, but what about that?" By far the very worst requested additions or outright changes are just plaguing games. I term them these requests as, "gamers who want to play dress up in their barbie house on the farm, while being far, far away from the west side trolls, who want to overly engineer their lair full of stolen items." Commonly referring to more skins / appearance controls, base building, farming and pvp. There is an expectation of restarting a game during Alpha and Beta play. Core game players knows this. The game is Under development, which includes testing, breaking, and fine-tuning items and mechanics. The core players are acting as debuggers first, giving feedback second, and in some cases may make suggestions May make it into the game. Once released, out of beta into full release the game is done. New players in Full release are not debuggers. Development that continues on a full release should not occur, unless the full release has bugs not reported before, due to a larger audience. By continuing to develop and making major changes and additions to a game, puts the game Squarely Back in Beta. It is Not a Full Release. The concept of working on a full release game with patches to fix issues was not meant to become a way of life in our games. Introducing any of this into the Original completion line messes up the new player base. Players who came to the game to explore, discover, and accomplish needed tasks deserve to revel in the same atmosphere, learn the process, and enjoy uncovering the mystery. This is not only off-putting and grindy, it's downright unfair to those who are using what free time they have, to attempt to get to the end game, That's the Gift. It is not a gift to lose progress because of updates and game breaking mechanics. Forgive me if catering to the current players and their revenue stream is the priority. Please understand, as I approach 1200 hours, that I include myself, even as I have created multiple ways of playing, but do not stream. What makes things worse are the requests made by players that are not Playing the game. They are done with the game, some never played the game, or they are in exile from other games. They ruin games by cutting off the legs of great concepts. Allow me to repeat, THEY ARE NOT PLAYING THE GAME. These players are intent on building a McMansion or the Scariest Armed Private Settlement. Including but not limited to, furniture, decorations, windows, flooring, etc. By and by the requests lead to "creative mode". It's not cheating, because they Don't want to play the game.” Other players chime in with "we just want to get our stuff back." Playing multiplayer with the creative McMansion players is not a game. Instead they bring other member players in to fetch them things while they create something inside a game that already has a quest line. On the other end of the spectrum, the adversarial players who brings in a small group of like-minded antagonists, hell bent on demoralizing and burning down everything outside their territory.Was that part of the game? Playing through the challenges and surprises to get to the end, only as long as we didnt have to lose anything? Or is it more a consequence of making too many changes. To be fair, the Original game quest line was not overtly difficult, so this mode is not about the game being hard. If there was no clear idea of How to expand on the Original concept, and development is still taking place, then take more time to consider how to keep it Unique and less time Morphing the game into a clone of another game, “ It sort of reminds me of InsertGame a little. I wish it had xxx”. Having said that, if I may offer some examples that I feel emulate the Unique concept and still manages to grant the non-players a way enjoy gaming their way. Old suggestions always return for a reason. The Origin end game should allow the player to enter a new universe, with new planets. Not Additional Planets in the Same Core Completion line. Not the same planets with a new look. (At least not so similar that it's an obvious reskin) This would give long time players the difficulty and challenges. If it cannot be implemented because it is so much work that it's really another game, and no sarcasm intended here, perhaps stop working on the finished game. The completion of one area Without bringing in items from another completion line offers a new challenge for players and less coding. Being brought to or landing in a new quadrant or universe without old objects also allows for greater stability and all new dynamics. (If time and code permitted, wormholes for travel would stay in concept, if connecting these places ever took place.) Challenges do not necessarily involve making every planet and place more and more hostile, but could offer more realistic challenges. Non rotational gravity gradient moons and asteroids etc.. Abandoned space stations objects and satellites to investigate, scavenge, repair or destroy. Occasionally finding meteorites. Meteors, asteroids and other celestial debris offer many different things in terms of craftable materials as well. New objects, "including appearance related" outfits and or uniforms with specific equipment attached to each that is needed to even go to a planet. Like any new environment, many things that works on an M class planet do not work everywhere. With new quadrants or a new universe come new travel. This would allow a Defense Force Astroneer a PVP system of their own with molten ground areas, heavy gravity, habitable and inhabitable zones and radiation. Terrain tools that can be modded to spray say, cataplant like orbs. Larger ships to carry more people. Some of these environmentals and objects can cross over to the New quadrant or universe as well for quest line players. Having One M class planet with a stable atmosphere, would be a surprise and welcome change for a Farming Astroneer, that can plant and grow a variety of space plants, both eatable and craftable. It would however carry with it a metric for depleting health on such a world. Using seeds and spores found throughout the system give them a quest line as well. Planting eatables and fiberlike plants that produce other crafting materials. They could create potted, vertical and full in ground farms. Sharing such crafting objects with a Terraforming Astroneer, who can do the same thing within a portable atmospheric field and mini hydroponics. These players could be working toward terraforming specific planets or moon types. Items that can extract water vapor from propellants. Upgrading a portable atmospheric field to create a large artificial atmosphere by recycling gases locked in sediment, up to a cyclotron, inside a Bio-dome like structure. These challenges include getting to another planet just like now. However, rockets may not work for some explorations. Realistically, not every place would permit large ships. Some places are truly made up of liquid while others or too hot or have zero gravity. Taking a Shuttle for small hops, or deployment craft from an orbiting mass may be the only way to get there. There will also be a need for Specialized vehicles, tailored to those environments. Again, realistically, some places cannot use a buggy, or rover, but a hovercraft, or subterranean craft is needed. With ancient knowledge, scattered throughout the system in various forms, is the information on How to reach some places otherwise inaccessible. These objects may contain some specialized material or item that is needed to get there. Creating a forward base, having telescopes, specialized life support, a compass or GPS, a communication relay, energy beams. All this would be a great adventure for an Explorer Astroneer. Creating Hydrogen cells, Solar cells, and Methane cells, for energy. Or all new forms of energy never heard of, for a system that is not like our own. Jump drives, Hyper drives, Warp drives, The aforementioned worm holes, black holes and Einstein-Rosen Bridge seeing what a place looked like before. To me, this is so much more awesome than making it harder, adding quality of life items, making surfaces perfect, playing games with the game, adding more, bigger, or additional controls on already existing items. Save it for the bigger game. This game is a wonderful experience, and I truly appreciate all the work that has gone into it.
  8. Just a 'simple' (not sure if coding it is so simple) addition to the Atmospheric Resources. Let us be able to fill 1 half canister of Atmospheric Resource into an other half canister. This was my TEDtalk, thanks for listening. Cheers,

    Resource Deposit Scanner

    A soil centrifuge can be used to make plenty of the basic resources (Compound, Resin, Organic, Clay, Quartz, Graphite, Ammonium). Mining Graphite and Ammonium can be much quicker because of the higher soil requirement per resource, but time can be consumed by driving without locating deposits. I suppose it is a fun part of the game to build your solar system by hunting for these resources in bulk; but for big projects or projects that require Titanium Alloy or Nanocarbon Alloy, it would be nice to have a way of pointing my astroneer in the right direction. Because you're hunting on a planetary scale, vehicle mounting and operation while seated would be ideal.
  10. It would be cool to be able to assign an item type to storage so that it only holds that type of item. Ex: If you could assign a different resource type to each column of a medium silo (or the silo as a whole) so that when you output materials to it, they would appear in the column that has been assigned to that material type or if the storage does not accept that material it would not be stored there. Simpler example: Assign a medium storage to only hold resin. Any other materials would not be able to be placed on that storage.

    Medium rover bug

    So i started playing astroneer 2 days ago AND ALREADY had to make 2 madium rovers. I found out that when you flat the floor around the rover the rover will go into the ground and will disapear with all of your stuff now i have nothing and im disgusted to try getting the resources again
  16. Hey folks, This is my first post and my first time suggesting an idea on this forum! Happy to be here, and I'd love to hear you folks' feedback on what I have to say. To get to the point: I've been thinking for a long time about a hydrocarbon-based crafting system that I've felt has been sorely needed. My proposal is intuitive, uses existing features currently implemented in the game, and the little it changes would be relatively easy to implement. Hydrocarbons would exist either in the depths of planets in oil-saturated rock, or on the surface of some planets as tar sands. Calidor, for example, could hold tar pits dense in hydrocarbons, whereas Glacio would have them in patches deep underground. They would also be craftable in the Chemistry Lab at the cost of a canister of Hydrogen and a block of Carbon, though the slow speed of generating artificial Hydrocarbons would make harvesting from deposits a more expedient process. Having them be craftable would also make them more accessible in the early game. These Hydrocarbons could then be "cracked" in the Chemistry Lab with some other element as a catalyst to produce Plastic, Rubber, and other oil-based products, like fuels and lubricants. Hydrocarbons and their products could also be used to create artificial Methane, potentially fuel Tier 3 generators, and act as a late-game, high-efficiency rocket propellant. I believe that the addition of Hydrocarbons in the manner I've suggested would increase impetus on exploration, as well as add new and realistic reasons to establish permanent footholds on other planets. I don't really know how to finish this, and it's 3 in the morning, so I hope you enjoyed reading.
  17. What happened to these graphical features making it into the game? I’m talking about how the ice looks in the ground as you mine it, how it’s embedded and looks shinier and has a different color than the surrounding soil. I thought these looked awesome and you should add them back once the game is fully stable And bug-free
  18. As a beginner I found it hard to figure out where to find some resources in Astroneer. So I spent my 6 days playing this sandbox game collecting infos and gathering them in an excel Spreadsheet. Credits to Gamepedia for a lot of what's in there. I post thereafter a link to the Excel file I patiently build those last few days. This way you can edit it and add/remove whatever you want. You'll also find in the .7z attached a .psd with all the png+transparency icons I used. In the excel file : columns with numbers correspond to my own stocks. Every time I leave a Planet, I take a minute to count my stocks and I write down how much I have of each resource. This way whenever I come back I know precisely what to bring in the shuttle. It also helps to see which places offer the most of each resource to gather. So get rid of those numbers and write your own. Ultra useful. You can see a preview of this excel file at the web link below. Took me some time to do that as I was playing. Hope you'll find it useful Cheers. Astroneer Resources Guide Preview : https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/12F0RyGGRIzoJ8eKaBZGkn6REKpfG4HXxuTFEnCR6lWI/edit?usp=sharing Astroneer Resources Guide (Excel Spreadheet) + icons http://hansolocambo.com/wp-content/uploads/Astroneer-Resources-Guide-Hansolocambo.7z P.S : I'll very probably modify and improve a few things in the future. Those links will be updated when necessary.
  19. Contrary to what the title might lead you to believe, no, I'm not suggesting more insane resource distribution, I'm suggesting that it be fixed. This is currently what is happening: I find one deposit of laterite or quartz or whatever, giving me 20-30 nuggets. Welp, that's enough for the entire rest of the game. I guess I can ignore every single subsequent aluminium deposit I find, and they're far from rare. Same for hematite. Same for titanium. Same for wolframite, etc. etc. Do you get the picture? You're spawning TOO MANY RESOURCES. It is TOO EASY to get amounts that allow players to build every single damn thing on the tech tree without running out, and all from ONE deposit. About the only difficulty is the tedium of having to make two or three trips with a fully loaded tractor train to haul back all the crap I've gotten from a single deposit. Don't even get me started on storing it all. That is completely insane; it's like you want to sabotage your own game. What's happening is people are blowing through the tech tree, partly thanks to you essentialy giving them a cheat plinth baked into the world gen, and leaving bad reviews because the game is boring. Well, duh, no wonder it's boring when you use cheats to give yourself infinite resources. That's essentially what you've done, baked infinite resource cheats into the standard game, and it is a painfully unsatisfying and tedious experience for those of us who want to play it properly. Let's also talk about distribution. Currently all planets feel samey because, well, that's what you've done. You've made resource distributions on planets samey. Compound/resin/clay on the surface, the rarer stuff below ground. Plug in whatever that planet's uncommon minerals are, spawn those on the surface rarely, and more often below ground. Nope, that's boring and flavourless, just as boring and flavourless as you've managed to make wrecks. They're all, large or small, identical and instantly forgettable, spawning the same 4-5 identical pieces of wrecked equipment. Well, you've done the same with planets. About the only positive change in 1.0 as regards terrain generation has been how pretty some of the planets and biomes are, the painfully saturated neon hues excepted, even if their fixed colour palettes get stale fairly quickly. Revert the resource deposit sizes and planetary disitribution to what it was in SEA and you'll be doing a-okay in my book. Which is something a good few weeks of honest playtesting would've told you - the new easymode, infinite resource world gen doesn't work and doesn't make for interesting gameplay. It is worse than what it replaced. I'm sorry if this comes across as scathing or abusive, but it is beyond frustrating to see game developers do the ol' three steps forward, four steps back dance when they had it right before trying to fix what wasn't broken. Make something good and stick to it vs. changing everything around for the worse simply to keep busy.
  20. ROBOTS My brother and I were playing the latest version last weekend and started setting up atmospheric condensers on different planets to gather specific resources. We would go do other things and then planet hop back to those planets to gather up the resources that were made. This led us to start talking about how cool it would be to be able to build mini resource gathering bases scattered all over the solar system, where you have a team of robot workers that would do the gathering for you. All you do is setup these bases, let them do their thing and then return to gather up what they produced. Obviously, you don't want this feature to be easily accessible, where you don't have to do any scavenging yourself. Once it's up, there could be maintenance that is required. Robots break down and require specific resources to repair. We love the inter-planetary travel aspect of this game really enjoy jumping to different planets to gather resources. Thought this would be a cool idea to expand your base and resource production to a new level. WINDMILL I was also thinking about how there is the larger solar array for solar power but there is no "large" equivalent for wind power. There should be a large windmill that you can create. Have a wind farm to get all the power you need for your base!
  21. Well, i would like another machine (Like a... umm... Moleculizer or something like that) that could generate more rare materials (like titanite, hematite, wolframite and other resources like those) like a Soil Centrifugator but with rare resources that are on other planets. The ""craft"" would be something like: -1 Titanium alloy -1 Steel -1 Nanocarbon alloy (or diamond or something like that) -1 "Undefined" (the object that you can found on the core of the planets, any of those works for the "craft", but this one isn't really necessary, it could be astronium to finally give it a craft use) This machine would generate those rare resources with a lot of energy, or something else...

    Disappearing Resources

    Sometimes if I partially dig up a deposit of resources on the surface (this has happened with clay and ammonium), go far enough away so that part of the map unloads, then come back later, the rest of the resource that was left behind has disappeared. I don't know if this is already a known issue, but I figured I'd report it.
  23. I’ve gone down all the way to the core but I can’t find any graphite on vesania, the wiki says it’s a primary resource on that planet but I can’t find it anywhere. pls help

    New Resource Designs

    Now that 1.0 is out all the veins of resources got a make over. I think the resources on your backpack should change to. Wolframite is now more like cubes so the resource should be too.
  25. Hi SES! This is probably just a small mistake but the symbol at the core of Glacio does not match correctly and exactly with Diamond, for players new to the game this may be hard to understand as the symbols are quite easily mixed up, but they might go and make nanocarbon alloys instead of diamond and then be dissappointed that they did all of that for nothing. Just thought I would make you aware. Thanks!
