With bases becoming so large and complex i feel that it would be helpful to add a base part that creates a set of S.A.W (self automated workers) to help you do mulitple things at once from one terminal and/ or search for resources. It could be somthing you could add to a rover aswell to search for and tell you where resource nodes are.
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!
Astroneer is a great game. I was around way before the 1.0 update and loved the game. The 1.0 update was bettet than i imagined. The terrain, planets, and even the machines looked EPIC But, There are 3 things i think would make the game way better. ROBOTS A little bot could make the game a whole lot cooler. Im not asking for the dev team to make a gigantic terminator planet dissasembler powered by the might of zeus. A little bot (the size of the player) that could recieve commands given by the player (Mine, create a tether line etc...) would make the game really feel like it is generations beyond our current space travel is. The robot could have teirs. The robot could be a vehicle mod (like the mods for the terrain tool) that makes the vehicle do things. to make this not too overpowered the first tier could be 1 zinc and 1 ammonium for the Mod version of it. The mod version of the robot would require a storage (like a medium storage on a small rover). The modification could be given Astronium from sylva and become its own thing (Once astromium is given it consumes the vehicle and astronium and becomes a better bot). I know that a major update has just come out but maybe by the end of the year this could be added. Vehicles Astroneer has a couple vehicles but i think a couple more would be good. A Mod (like the terrain tool ones) that can be added to a vehicle and give it abilities would be pretty nice. By abilities i mean like faster speed, Ability to hold platforms that are not packaged etc. If the dev team does create oceans for planets, a submarine or a boat that can be grounds for a base in the ocean would be AWESOME. These vehicles can be crafted at a Vehicle Bay. Better Drills. the second i learned that the planets core had a gateway chaimber i crafted a drill, attached it to my rover and nose dived into the ground. The drills in the game as of current are pretty useful. The drills make resource gathering more fun when you can just plow through anything like butter. I only have 2 problems with the drills. 1. You cant change the angle that the drill is drilling unless you manuver yourself in that certain way. 2. The drill makes holes that you can walk through by foot but does NOT place concrete (the thing that you can place with the canister and terrain tool). If the drill can change its angle and, the drill can place concrete under it when it in inevitably drills throgh the toof of a cave. The drill should have a Mod slot that can take modifications. For example a Builder Mod that digs holes and places concrete when it drills into a hole/cave.
1. There should be robots that can be assigned to collect things or do other things that can be helpful to the player. They should take power to make them less overpowered. They should also have different models that do different things for you; like: cranes, or small/big walking robots. 2. There should also be forcefields to protect your base from storms or other things that get added. They could also take power to have turned on all the time.
