  1. 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.

    Platform Exclusive Suits

    System Era announced that the PS4 version would have an exclusive suit. Are the other platforms getting these? It would make sense having one on each instead of just the one.

    Why didn't I get the Retro suit

    Ok so I bought the game over a year ago when it was in alpha 0.7.0.0 and just recently one of my xbox friends told me about this cool retro suit. I have never heard about before and he told me I should of gotten it when the game was released. So I decided to come here to see if he is right or not
  4. I recently unlocked the cores of Vesania, Calidor, and Sylva in single player mode and earned the achievements for them, but I haven't gotten the rewards for them. I've exited out of the game multiple times, and I haven't gotten any of the rewards for them. When I unlocked Desolo though, I got the rewards from the achievement. I have no idea what's going on.
  5. I have activated a surface node, the core, and a part of the purple platform near the sun. Still no suit. As you can see in the pictures I have included, I have the Terran suit, and I have unlocked a suit before. It was an awful lot of work trying to unlock this suit just for it to not work. Please help or fix soon.
  6. If the System Era people got with the steam market and put in some skins, emoticons, badges, trading cards, backgrounds, or really anything to show our love for the game. Putting stuff up on our profiles is a really cool way to show appreciation other then straight up donating which I don’t know if you can or can’t do. . . and I think it is totally not without of Astoneers grasps. I would also assume that it would make some money or something. . . I’m going to finish some skin examples I’ve been working on and some emoticons, trading cards, badges, and steam background ideas.
  7. Finished the game and now all unlocked suits, colors and dances are gone, no way to re-unlock since all the puzzles have been completed. Retro suit is also gone.

    Retro-Futurism Suit Idea

    Hey SES! Barry here (y'know, the Astrodoggo guy)! I know you're working crazy hard on E3, so I hope that you don't stress over suggestions. I have a pretty good idea for a new suit. So, you know those cheesy 50s sci-fi futurism movies? Well, I really like the style, and I thought that a suit like that would be awesome. It could have a huge bubble helmet, be crimson red with shiny silver decals, and have 2 giant tubes connecting to a red O2 tank, or something like that. I'll include some images in this style for reference (credit to whoever made them, since I just found them on Google). Or this I think that the glass bubble helmet could be more Astroneer-ed, in that there could be some sort of "exo-skeleton helmet" that covers some of the glass. This is so the whole thing isn't opaque glass, making it look like the head is a giant ball (since Astroneers have no faces and the glass wouldn't be clear). I hope that you can take this into consideration, and good luck at E3! o7 - Exoplaneteer, A.K.A Barry the Astrodoggo⚡
  9. Greetings, i made some sketches today 3 animal species and some kind of exoesqueleton suit What do you think?
  10. Planet-specific suits has been stated as a feature the developers wish to add to the game, and this is my take on how to integrate them into core gameplay mechanics and a reimagined research system. 1. Biome-adapted suits. Information: The idea of unique suits that can be unlocked by researching unknown planet-specific artifacts (research items). Each suit is tailored to the requirements of a particular environment and ideally allows for more extensive exploration. Intended effect: - add customisation element - diversify environments/ planets __________ ____________ vision: (all suits share a standard 8 storage as well as 2 auxiliary slots) - Standard suits (no requirements): +2 storage slots - Space suit (Barren): high oxygen capacity - Expedition suit (Exotic): +2 auxiliary slots - Exo-suit (Arid): high physical resistance - Arctic suit (Tundra): high thermal insulation - Hazard suit (Radiated): high filter effectiveness - Pressure suit (Oceanic): high pressure resistance (for a potential oceanic planet type…) obviously, these ideas require changes and additions to the existing mechanics, such as a distinction between storage and technical/ auxiliary slots, and the new variables temperature and pressure…

    Planet-Specific Suits

    Planet Based Suits The 4 basic suits are still available at the beginning of your game, but now in the game you can craft planet specific suits that will be adjusted based on which astroneer you chose. So you still have a chance for customization and choice. All new suits would be built at the printer The suit would take up two module spaces; You would not be able to carry in the backpack A player equips a suit by dragging it over his Astroneer and it auto equips. the replaced suit is transferred into the players's hand and can be placed on any two spots. These suits will NOT be needed to travel to other planets. They will definitely help, but are not required. For example, on Tundra if you stay on the planet too long you will freeze and die. The only way to "warm up" is to hop back into your habitat. But with the new Tundra suit, you can be out in the cold for as long as you want. The suits might be planet specific, but you can still wear them anywhere. You might find that you like some suits better than others. Like if you are in a cave on Terran, you can equip the Barren suit to manage your oxygen better. Terran Suit Researched on Terran Function: Adds extra backpack spaces New Augment: Terrain Tool tills the land and makes it usable for farming Barren Suit Researched on Terran Function: Oxygen is depleted slower Arid Suit Researched on Barren or Tundra Function: Protects against extreme heat and also gives more resistance to damage (In order to deal with the spiked balls flying around) New Augment: Fire Tundra Suit Researched on Barren or Arid Function: Protects against extreme cold and also enables faster movement New Augment: Ice ️ Exotic Suit Researched on Barren or Radiated Function: Protects against the poison gas/acid that plants spit out Radiated Suit Researched on Barren or Exotic Function: Protects from extreme radiation and also energy is depleted slower New Module: Geiger Counter - Detects radiation sources (for later added radiation materials; who knows?) So let me know what you guys think! Please feel free to add anymore functions to the suits or suggest some really cool modules that would pair well with them. If you have any questions on functionality/mechanics/anything I can totally elaborate on it. This picture is NOT from me, but from System Era. I got most of my ideas from looking at these, so maybe they will inspire you with some great ideas as well!

    Planet Themed Suits

    This was recently shared by the devs in their latest blog about the newly updated roadmap. I fell in love with these new suits as soon as I saw them. I was just wondering what everyone else thought. I tried to pick out which one was associated with which planet. I really hope they implement this... so what did y'all think when you saw this picture? These are my guess for which suit is which 1st one - Terran 2. Barren 3. Tundra 4. Radiated 5. Arid 6. Exotic im also thinking about what new features each suit will have but I'll post that later in the Ideas and Suggestions forum.
  13. Here are some suggestions that in my opinion would make the game better: -Animals (passive and hostile) -More resources (More minerals, plants ...) -Some kind of backpack (an extra inventory) -Experience system (XP) and skills to upgrade the character. - Improved game search system. -More accessories for both vehicles and the character itself. - Combat weapons (the one I most want in the game). - Customization options for a new local or multiplayer game. - Difficulty level varied on other planets that force the player to create a suit or item to survive on other planets. -Structures to strengthen the base. I love this game a lot, and I want to collaborate so that it grows and is loved by all. Gamertag: JokerMasterE4P - Brazil
  14. I was thinking about any news suits for our caractere, i would love if the devs do some others suits style for others planets weather because we can't do EVA in space with the same suits we have on earth due to the ultraviolet ray so i don't know if this idea its good but i would love to have to change my suit before going on my next target planet or EVA Tell me guys if you like this idea Nyda
