    Large Wind Turbines

    I would like to see large wind turbines in Astroneer in the future as I feel like wind power is a little bit under appreciated. My idea is that with better turbines, people will think of wind power as just as good as solar. I want it to cost 2 glass 1 ceramic and 1 aluminum in the large printer. I want it to look how it looks in real life, but I don't want it to be so big. Having the blades higher means that wind can catch them when turbines on the ground cannot. I want it to create as much as 4 medium wind turbines at full speed. Last suggestion is that it should be able to anchor to the ground without a platform with an increase cable length.
  2. If you place a turbine on your base, and then save while smelting something or using any sort of power at all the game will freeze, and crash.
  3. First off well talk about the Recycling center/station. Essentially its a means to get rid of any unwanted platforms vehicles and modules (as well as their permanent attachments) The way it would work would be similar to how the vehicle bay "detects" an empty vehicle slot in front of it. When a large item (such as a platform, vehicle, or module) is in front of the station, it will allow you to do one of two things: Recycle - This will destroy the item and return half of the materials (a minimum of 1 per item recycled) used to create the item(s). This will recycle and return at least one material per item recycled, but cannot recycle materials (so be sure to remove them before recycling). Ex: if you place a single "Large platform D" you will receive two Aluminum for it. But if there are other items attached to it, for example a single medium solar panel, then you will also receive materials from that. Granting you two aluminum and one copper. you also cannot recycle the starter items (to ensure players cant continuously respawn the starter set for easy material farming) Deconstruct - following the same rules as the Recycle system, it will allow you to destroy items placed in front of it including any attachments. The difference is that rather then returning materials it will allow you to receive data (bytes) and will allow you to add a small amount of Bytes to your bank. the higher the tier the more bytes you can receive though the highest amount will only be around 50 bytes Next is Tier 4 power options. Currently the only real use for the XL platform is to be used with the XL storage (which is the only tier 4 module currently). These options will allow for greater power alternatives as well as a use for the XL Platforms. XL Wind Turbine - This windmill shaped turbine will provide up to 3x the amount of energy then a normal wind turbine, Using its articulated propeller it can face the direction of the wind allowing it to be more efficient with energy gathering. XL Solar Panel - Providing more solar energy this station works similarly to the small solar panel in that it will tilt itself towards sunlight to gather energy more efficiently the large solar cells are slightly larger then the XL platform but can deliver up to 4x the amount of power compared to a standard solar panel. XL Generator - Providing 2.5x the energy as a medium sized generator would be worth it enough, but due to innovations in technology XL generators not only will consume coal at one third the rate (essentially making a single stack of coal last up to 3x longer), but can also utilize Organic matter, but they will be consumed at half the rate as a small generator essentially making it last 2x's as long and more efficient then a small generator). They are also designed with a single Tier two slot allowing for two single items for storage or a single two tier item (such as a medium Storage module) All XL Power supplies are crafted with 2 Titanium and require a tier 4 slot making the XL Station or Large Rover the only way to use them (will be permanently affixed).

    Small Wind Turbine Disappeared

    I tried letting go of a small wind turbine while I was moving it and it was in the air. It vanished. Placing it on the ground before was fine. I think this might be a problem with placing things that would normally be able to be fixed into the ground, but in the air. I haven't tried it with other things like small solar panel, etc, but those might have the same problem.
  5. The thruster has 4 spots that you can put a small item on each one of those spots for storage (I'm assuming). It would be nice if when you attach say: a battery, small solar panel, small wind turbine to those spots and attach it to the back of your larger vehicle (and possibly anything else the thruster may attach to, I'm not that far in the game I don't know if it does yet) that it would charge your car from where it sits on the thruster. The design of this game is so intelligent that when I did it I assumed it would work and was surprised that is didn't. So I just thought It'd be nice to see it as a functional feature. I just think it would speak for the already intelligent design of the game. Also I hate that I cant just put single Items anywhere I want on the the open ports on the back of the ship. It autofills you from the seat on back.

    Sandstorms do not spin turbines

    First of all, I'm not sure if this is a bug or just a missing feature. Either way, it appears that turbines (the small ones at least) do not spin during sandstorms. I play on PC if that helps.

    A bug or two...

    v.215 Windows PC (Win10 PRO), Windows Store, Keyboard and Mouse Please address the issue of the resources pooping off the terrain tool and falling into the planet forever! What is with the wind turbine? you are in a blizzard and they don't turn, period... one would think in that kind of wind they would spin. It's not just the storms tho, you can be in a area and the environment shows wind blowing but the turbines just sit there. These are the two biggest bugs / pet peeves I have with the game ATM.
  8. Why doesn't the Wind Turbine spin in a storm? The wind is blowing so hard that I have to hide in the habitat to avoid the boulders being blown around. But the turbine is sitting there stagnant. The solar panel works when the sun is out. Why doesn't the turbine work when the wind is blowing?
  9. I mounted a Wind Tirbine to my truck and it falls off every once in a while very randomly. Almost lost it!!
  10. The game gave me the option to, so of course I placed it on the large rock and the turbine grew to a very large size, but unfortunately I could not pick it back up and it was stuck there. There is no reason you should put a turbine there, but I'll save you the curiosity
