  1. Hi. I want to share an interesting story. Today I was testing winch and towing for the first time. It works really bad and I think it needs to be improved. It is not really towing... it is like stretching a bungee and waitinh what happens. Usually it is the load that jumps on top of the rover, but when I leave the rover it is usually rover flying away... Anyway, I was towing a field research unit and at some point the unit hit the rover and the rover flipped upside down on top of the research unit. I tried to flip it back, but instead, my astronaut left the rover and found himself inside the research unit... I could not get back outside, I was locked inside! Luckily, The rover had a trailer with batteries, so being inside the research unit, I managed to disconnect the trailer cable plug and connect it directly to the research unit. After some time the unit opened and I could leave. I think the easiest way to fix the bug is to make towing more predictable and stable, so it is actually towing, not playing with bungees
  2. Playing multiplayer with a friend on PC, I'm hosting. Not sure if this bug is repeatable with a controller, because it takes quick reactions to pull off. Was pulling a platform after finding out the winch will pull anything it's attached to without a vehicle. Accidentally attached the winch to the T2 slot on the platform and it began to spin and fly into the distance. Long story short, had to make another winch and platform. Image shows the model for a platform and winch frozen in the clouds on Glacio.
  3. So recently I started digging a big hole in the ground, while I was waiting on my research. The process of digging a massive hole was taking a long time, and my math teacher always told me to "think smarter not harder". So I got to thinking, "what if I used the winch that cost me 3000 bytes, on my character, to drop down the hole as sort of a grappling hook". I then trapped the winch in the ground so my weight wouldn't carry it down, and attached the winch onto my character. I was surprised to see that the winch would stick onto my character and I got really excited. Then I jumped down the hole, and the winch detached from my character instead of holding me up. I then experienced my first death. Luckily the game crashed after that so it didn't count as a death.
  4. If you attach a Winch to a trade platform, Madness Ensues. Version: 0.9.0 Game Type: Steam
  5. Don't know if this has already been reported, but here I go: 1. Attach a winch to a rover (tested only with large rover). 2. Find or build a single seat and place it on the ground close to the winch. 3. Hook the single seat with your winch. 4. Pick up the single seat. 5. You're welcome...
  6. I discovered how the drill works together with the mineral extractor, and it's fantastic! This will save me a lot of work, because it automatically gathers all the drilled ground! Obviously I had to secure my long Rover, while I was working with my drilling head, with a winch! Because otherwise, the Rover moves with the strong inclination of the terrain. I am very happy with this discovery!!
  7. Summary: - Steam on Windows 10 Pro x64 - Winches have a slot on them? Description: I just found a winch at the bottom of a naturally spawning cave in the starting world and it seems to have a slot on it. I was able to plug an ammonium nugget onto the area where the "nozzle" of the winch is. See this gifv.
  8. So I accidentally linked a winch to air while trying to link to an object I found. Then, I tried to make it release to no avail. Driving away doesn't help. It just refuses to un-link from nothing, and won't move. I eventually had to leave it behind.
  9. I had a rover chain of two large rovers, then two small rovers ( L-L-S-S. It wasn't driving too well so I was dividing it into two separate rovers. In the process I accidentally attached the winch to the back of the second large rover, the port where the rovers connect (L-L-W-S-S). The game immediately seized up and crashed a few seconds later. I haven't been able to reproduce it. Each time I have tried to split a rover chain by attaching the winch it seems to work fine.
  10. Windows 10 version Mouse n Keyboard Version: 0.3.10190.0 While exploring around on the planet Terran, I came across a crashed spaceship that was half submerged in the ground as per usual. I starting wondering if I could attach a Winch to the spaceship remains, and drag it back to my home base. I attached the winch and started driving away in my Truck expecting that the spaceship would drag behind me. It instead started flying around the air while still connected to my Winch. Here is a video and photo that will show what I've just explained. ASTRONEER 6_19_2017 6_10_52 PMTrim.mp4
  11. I don't know how or why but I can drag an infinite amount of cables out of the winch and attach them to air (nothing). They will not reset or go away no matter what I click. I tried resetting the cords, picking up the winch, driving out of render distance and coming back... nothing works. There also isn't any stretch on the cables anymore (so I cannot use the item how it should be used.) Some hilarious screenshots: I am playing the Steam version.
  12. Hey, If you attach the crane to a winch and pull it with a truck it can sometimes get stuck under the ground. I have recreated this so I could understand it better, it will only phase through if its upside down. the base of the crane stops it from fully disappearing. If you enter the crane while its underground then exit it you will start to float around underground. Current Xbox One version as of 2017/Feb/03 Cheers
  13. So I attached a winch to my spacecraft, then attached the hook to an object in my base and then proceed to fly away to our second base. Upon landing, everything is normal, the winch is normal and so on, no problems here. However, upon returning to the planet in which I originally attached the winch to the object in my base, the winch appears to still be attached! The winch also has a dupe hook on it (Or is the old one the dupe?) anyhow, the original is impossible to remove, unless you restart the save.
  14. Not a big problem Placed artefact on research module while artefact was still attached to winch. Clicked the Research icon. If I remember well, the artefact did not disappear after research.
