How do I find my base if I go off in my rover and lose sight of the bubble?

The only way is to just keep looking I recommend placing down beacons so you don't get lost while exploring.

how do i pick up research? with the new update i can no longer pick up research 

 

You might not have mined it out fully, if there is still some terrain touching it then you won't be able to pick it up.

How do I get the melting furnace? My Medium printer only comes as standard to create: the investigation station and the platform. has to unlock the oven in some way? Is it some error?

How do I launch a small shuttle? 

I’ve attached the solid fuel thruster and when I try to launch it says “need thruster” and won’t launch.  I turned on the fuel thruster and that only burned for a few seconds and then it turned into a used one for salvaging.  How the heck do I launch? 🙈 thank you!

What works for me is to get to the top of a mountain and check my compass. That'll give you a general heading. If you still can see the beacon go your best idea as to where it is and try another mountain.

Make sure the thruster is actually connected to the bottom slot.

As answered before beacons is one option. But you can end up littering the planet with those if you like to go touring :P

The best option is to make a road (beacons or tethers) from your base to the North Pole (and/or South Pole).

This will mean you can always find the Pole by following the compass, then follow your road (beacons or tethers) back to your base.

What's the 'compass' people keep talking about? I don't seem to have one.

Mouseover your character and the compass will be projected on the ground. difficult to see on bright surfaces.

How do i make the medium storage ? It says its unlocked but i can't make it with my starter medium printer 

You're not trying too hard. If a medium printer doesn't work, perhaps a small one will.

Tengo un problema más concreto con el juego de Astroneer. El primer día que lo instalé pude cambiar el lenguaje del juego en español, pero fue cerrar el juego y al día siguiente estaba en inglés. Por algún motivo ahora ya no me lo deja cambiar y no encuentro ninguna ayuda externa que me lo pueda solucionar. Podríais ayudarme por favor.

How do i beat the game?  I broke it.

the sattelite’s orb is hovering inside a shelter right now. (I didn’t know something would come out of the center when i placed it there).  Is there a way to delete it?  I spent weeks to get here and now I cannot beat it.

Check bugs and questions.  I posted there too.  Kinda desperate because i feel like I wasted a BUNCH of time.

Hi im not sure if asking you guys is the right thing, but i'll just start here. Do I need xbox live gold in order to play astroneer single player (I know that I need it for multi/co-op). Because I want to get the game, but I have no interest in getting xbox live gold right now.

Again, no.
