  1. If you are on a big adventure collecting either soil, scraps or resources it can be difficult to return all those items into your base, especially if you have multiple rooms, each dedicated to a certain machine or storage area. Now it would be great if there would be a conveyor belt or a pipe waiting for you at the entrance which would automatically transport resources to a certain room. Of course there could also be some kind of a filter which would determine what item can go through it and in certain direction and drop the item into the platform or storage. The item would be considered as an end item, so it would perhaps cost rubber and a very valuable metal. Also the transportation would cost some power so it's not too op. It would be created/placed just like the extenders ( a number of that item as one). There should also be some kind of junction, thats where the filters would become useful. I hope this sketch can show you the idea as much as possible.
  2. My idea is for a way to transport items to and from two planets or from one place on the planet to another. Yes I know there are rockets and vehicles along with massive storage silos that can be used but maybe this can be a use for Astronium so that way it has another use besides being research, looking pretty, cool and awesome. Also maybe this item transporter will take a tier 4 space on a large platform so that the extra large platform can used a lot more often. For power and building it could be built at the large printer for two Astronium a aluminum alloy with a nanocarbon alloy order to use the item teleported it will take carbon along with a steady flow of power. This is a idea I came up with because I had to take so many trips to get items from different planets. (Also you guys are doing a amazing job on Astroneer!)
  3. This is a really rare item you can make using rare items such as astronium, or a new anti-gravity ore. When placed down you can select up to a certain range with a slider to collect and it will pick up all the items (that the player has made, such as platforms, machines, etc.. but not research items, dirt, etc...) and shrink them down to a "package" size (small amounts would be carried on your backpack, medium amounts in your hand, and large on a vehicle) to carry to another place, such as a new base, and if its something that cant be packaged or moved (like a habitat) then it won't pick it up. you can also make different sizes of these, such as a backpack size (maybe a tiny range?) or Tier 1 - 3 (ranging from a small range to an enormous range).
  4. Im thinking of More futuristic transport on planets. Currently we have rovers in all sizes, a tractor and a buggy. But i think it would be fun to have a flying *car/plane/Craft/vehicle* . Mabye having flying cars.. or rather hovercrafts in the game will make it to futuristic, but mabye just a car looking thing that flyes only like 1-3m over the ground that is'nt affected by the terrain under it. mabye it seems useless or rather unnecesserry*** but many times have i had 2 bases on other sides of the planet and would either have to rocket there… or rover there, and both are inconvenient. since the rocket is for longer runs. Its more expensive to use… and since the rover is made for Shorter runs... it takes longer and the tarrain is enoying to pass the land With... mabye if you comment possible problems or questions i will have more spesific idea for Craft.. i have other ideas like Trains/conveyors and HUGE Space Crafts. Btw if you arent sure of the design, just think of some sci-fi starwars at the sice of a medium rover... please comment
  5. Currently, if you want to do something in Astroneer, you usually have multiple ways of doing it. For example, if you want to get hematite, you can go to Glacio, Novus, or just stay at Sylva and use trade platform. Or, when you are building a base, you have 3 variations of each platform tier. But when you want to explore the depths of planets, build multiple-floor bases or build a reusable tower, there is just one viable option: Ramps. Ramps take long to build, require tons of soil and can often get very annoying to construct. This is why i think Astroneer needs an alternative. My suggestion is an elevator. simple base piece, that you can put on a platform. You can control the elevator either by pressing F while pointing at it, or by pressing W/S while sitting in a rover seat which is connected to the upper platform. This ensures, that you can easily control it from inside, and also call the elevator towards you. The connection slots consist of a tier 3 slot at the bottom for connecting to a platform, and a tier 2 slot at the top for connecting a rover seat or medium storage. Alternatively, there could be a second tier of elevator with t4 slot at the bottom and t3 slot at the top, allowing you to stack two elevators for a higher reach. Having a rover seat to sit in at the top will be necessary, because current physics would not work if you just stood on the platform, and fixing it would be too hard of a job, for just an elevator. Lastly, i have attached a rough sketch of the elevator and it's connection slots. I really hope that you like the idea and agree on the need for an alternative to using ramps.
  6. Has anyone considered how there's no good method of moving items around beside your own character? Me and my friend are often on different planets to each other but we haven't exactly completed the fast travel network yet. sometimes, of course, we run out of a certain type of item that you can't get on whichever planet and so we end up having to give each other items. How? The shuttle... Yay? While sure, the shuttles now work brilliantly for interplanetary travel, it's not exactly efficient if you're just dropping something off for another player. I think a great solution for this would be to create a new item transfer platform - Something that lets you send items to other stations across the entire Astroneer solar system. Not only is this extremely useful for sharing items, but it makes it much easier to set up a more permanent base on a different planet. Out of zinc? Get someone on Sylva to send you some. Need some more iron for that extra large platform? Sent. Ideally the ship that travels with the items could be a separate entity, so if the station already has a ship, it can just be removed. Alternatively this could simply be some kind of teleportation system, but I can see why that wouldn't fit into and EXO environment. I think this would make a great addition to the game and would like to see it added in future updates somewhere!
