I was playing Astroneer on the same save for about 7-8 hours or so, I had yet to research a couple things, and I was running low on supplies so I decided to head into a cave near my base. Sprinting to the canyon where the entrance is located, my FPS started to lower a bit. (The save was before 125 so it made sense). I entered the cave and start following my winding path of tethers, mining compound to create more along the way. As I approached the end of my tether chord with little to no supplies, I decided to continue down a slant that I had yet to explore. I continued to place tethers as I descended this route. The terrain color changed from a normal brown to a deep green, I knew this meant I was far down. Yet still no minerals so I continued. I reached an area that seemed to open up, a lot. As soon as I stepped into the ever-expanding cavern my FPS dropped again. Again, I didn't think anything about it, I just needed minerals. It was like I was back on the surface, except there was no sun, and all I could see was three things. Giant bones, a crashed solar panel, and another cave opening in this flat wasteland. I took a moment to admire the giant rib-cage I had stumbled upon and place down some more tethers, then I continued down the new cave. The only thing different about this cave was its length. It abruptly stopped about 30-40 yards down. My FPS lowered again. As I approached the bottom of the descent I noticed a small orange symbol poking up through the dirt. I took out my terrain tool and dug away a small ditch in order to investigate. It was something I'd never stumbled upon before. I had heard about it from the forums but never actually found one. I had found the corpse of another dead Astroneer. I instantly felt scared and sorrowful at the same time. I removed the aluminum and dynamite from his backpack and, using the terrain tool again, buried him in respect. As I have no idea how he died I can only assume he ventured down just as I had and his oxygen supply must've been cut off. The poor guy must've suffocated. After burying him I returned to the surface to clear my inventory, and hopefully my mind as well. I have yet to return to  that save file. Rest in peace Space-man.

There's something inherently disturbing about finding dead Astroneers while exploring. It kind of messes with you for a bit. Great story, btw!

Thanks, the very same to you as well! :D

If you really want to show him respect, you would use the dynamite found on his backpack to blow his remains to smithereens. It's what he would have wanted, probably, maybe.

I found this dead Astroneer too but I think his death was caused by some kind of internal parasite. :)

I agree. Because penises are the pinnacle of humor and comedy. And that is exactly what this thread was missing, so thanks for the attempt to steer it into a truely funny direction.

Half an inch to the left and It would of been erased by the moderators and I'd probably be on a ban lists.

With that let's not pick on the joke any further. Slight off-topic is fine, but I feel like this is becoming more than that. :ph34r:

It does make me wonder where they all keep coming from, and why they just wander down deep tunnels to die.
