  1. When an item begins to smelt, the color gradient of the nugget flips axes. Only tested with a few ores.
  2. Hey y'all Not sure if this was already mentioned, but I checked and found nothing about the topic: When I start my furnace and leave the stuff inside to smelt, it does not drop out automatically. Instead it melts "together" as one block of one same resource. What I realised was, that this only happens, when I leave the furnace to go back down to mine....but if I wait in front of it, it drops out automatically. It's pretty annoying, because sometimes the smelted stuff falls "into" the smelter I have to disconnect it from the plattform to retrieve the resources. I recorded the whole thing: or Cheers and thank you!
  3. Steam Version 1.0.7 In a game hosted by me, my friend and I started smelting Wolframite into tungsten, then left and went into a cave system. After coming back there was half a tungsten on the smelter, and half on a storage next to it. both when hovered over showed the Tungsten label, however neither could be picked up. The smelter continued to work, but the storage slot with the half tungsten was ruined and could no longer hold a resource. The same thing happened with copper, except it was more of 1/4 on the storage and the rest on the smelter.
  4. Summary: The smelter is not available in the catalogue or the Medium printer so I cannot progress with the game Description: I have ample research points and I have checked and checked everything in the catalogue and on the printer, it's just not there! Platform: Steam - I have verified the installation Version / Build Number: Specifications: OS: Windows 10 Pro x64 | Version 10.0.17134 Build 17134 CPU: Intel(R) Core i7-7700 CPU @ 3.60GHz, 3600 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s) GPU: Name NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 3GB RAM: 16 gig Drive: Samsung 860 Evo 500GB
  5. I was playing with an person from Discord, and I accidentally found this Bug/Glitch. To do this you need to place an Ore into a Smelter and pick it up instantly. An finished Ingot will Spawn but you didn't lose the Ore. This Bug/Glitch has 3 Possible Results: 1. The one that I said. 2. An Visual Glitch: If you are a bit late to pick it up it will make an Ingot instantly and the Ore is gone but it's Object is still on the Smelter. 3. If you are late it will normally just smelt.
  6. so i was smelting some malachite and laterite to aluminum and copper and this happened. i would not call it something "normal". the copper did not properly de attach from the smelter and cliped into the aluminum, i cannot get the copper, it is stuck there.
  7. when the smelting process is finished, the last item stays on the creation point, when you turn it on and a new nugget gets smelted, the for example copper bar gets ejected and not moved to free slots on the side. similar issue on the shredder, new scrap metal nuggets are ignoring small Storages, they search for the new empty slot. it appears that the power consumption on the big truck is way to high, compared to a small truck, the big truck is not able to cover the same distance anymore.
  8. At random times the smelter will choose to pop the newly smelted item off of itself and not just place the item into the completely empty medium storage next to it
  9. the generic item ghosts (such as on the trade platform) are to generic grabbing everything when clicked including canisters and augments my suggestion is: add 2 bool to item class bool sell-able = False; bool smelt-able = False; trade platform: checks for bool sell-able and only allows placement of these items when clicked empty handed if you can trade it sell-able = True smelter: this could be applied to the new smelter code too where it has ghost inputs for the ore slots that check for bool smelt-able and pull that from the back pack when empty handed if you can smelt it smelt-able = True as a side note update the printer to be able to pull items from the backpack directly like the fabricators and vehicle bay
  10. Steam - Win8.1 64-bit - Mouse/Keyboard - Intel i7-3770 - 16GB - Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti (Driver Version 391.35)- MBAudio MSI B75MA E33 - Seagate ST2000DM001 2TB SATA Smelted items don't get put on empty storage slots, if medium storage on one side it managed to store 4 items but then started ejecting them on the 5th Very low res video SmelterEject.mp4
  11. Summary: 0.6.5 - XB1 - Constancy needed in platform utilization Description: The game is very non-uniform in the utilization of platform slots. Any production base module should be consistent as to where it deposits output materials. I don't care whether its the left side or the right side that is the primary output but pick one and make it the same on every base module. Platform: XBox One Version / Build Number: 0.6.5 SMELTER: Not positive when it started but it was in one of the more recent patches. The smelter has changed where it deposits output metals. It now outputs to the row of 4 smelting slots before choosing to output to either of the companion (when attached to a large platform) slots. It appears to favor outputting to the left companion slots when the 4 smelter slots are occupied. The smelter will take ore from either companion slots. MINERAL EXTRACTOR: This one outputs primarily to the right companion slot. HYDRAZINE CATALYZER: This one seems to output to the left companion slot. Will take Ammonium from either companion slots but won't take canisters. TRADE PLATFORM: This one does not deposit its return onto any storage. The request: What I am asking for is uniformity. Pick either left or right as primary output slot (I would like it to be left first, then right but I don't care deeply which is first). All output from all modules should go to the primary slot FIRST. And always the same slot (be it right or left) if it has free slots. Smelter should STOP outputting to the 4 input slots unless all companion slots are full. And please have the smelter eject the last piece of metal from its output. This would allow us to consistently predict where things are going to go in every platform with every module. The result (if uniformity were implemented): I could drop a medium storage with 8 malachite onto the left slot beside the smelter and when its complete, that same medium storage would be filled with 8 copper. Why does that not work now? Because the smelter won't deposit to that side and favors depositing them onto its 4 input slots. It also does not eject the last piece from the output. I still have to pick those up and put them on the storage. In addition, I could drop a medium storage with 8 malachite onto the left slots and a storage with 8 Laterite and walk away. When its done, I would come back to one storage full of copper and one full of aluminum. Why this doesn't work now? If you do that it seems to randomly pull from the storage intermixing copper and aluminum going to the storage tabs. And, obviously, leaving some on the input 4 slots and on the output slot. Its a mess. I can place a medium storage with 8 canisters on the left slot of the soil condenser. It will fill itself and return the canisters to the medium storage. Why does that not work now? Because the soil condenser wants to output to the RIGHT slot, not the left. I can put a medium storage with 4 empty canisters and 4 ammonium onto the left slot of the Hydrazine Catalyzer and it will suck up the empty canisters and the 4 ammonium and produce 4 canisters of hydrazine back on the medium storage. Why does this not work now? It won't take the canisters off a storage. And it doesn't deposit the hydrazine canisters back onto the storage. If this was fixed you could drop a medium storage with 8 ammonium and another with 8 empty canisters and walk away. Come back later to have the left storage full of 8 hydrazine and an empty storage on the right.
  12. My friends and I have been playing a lot recently and I've been annoyed by the fact that large tier items (aka 4 slot items eg. smelter, research center, large storage) are all stuck to their platforms once unpacked. I feel like a way to repack those for transport by shuttle to other planets or transport by rover would be simple and very helpful. Also, the ability to repack platforms would be great.
