Hello Intromas,

You should be able to find your saves at the following location, provided you are playing on a windows machine:

C:\Users\<yourusername>\AppData\Local\Astro\Saved\SaveGames

Enjoy

I assumed the save files were the same regardless of which PC platform you use. Have you tried copying the file from Steam and placing it in the correct folder in the MSS version to see if it works?

Hey guys, 

I downloaded the Microsoft store version of Astroneer. I'm wondering if there a way of transferring saves from the steam to Microsoft store version of the game?

It's a bit more involved than moving Steam saves!

Windows 10 save files are located in: 
AppData\Local\Packages\SystemEraSoftworks[Random#]\SystemAppData\wgs\[random folder]\[random folder]
 

You'll see that they use a different name convention. To import either a Steam save or another win10 save, you need to replace an existing save by renaming the incoming file.

I tried and it didn't show. it says its a different file type. Microsoft is "File" and steam is "SAVEGAME FILE"

I made a longer post on this a few minutes ago.  The process has become slightly more convoluted than it once was, and this is the safest way I know how transfer a save and not risk any existing saves you have.  I have done it repeatedly and also walked a number of others through it.  Let me know if you have questions.

Thanks Gina, that worked perfectly!

My instructions were more concise😜

Yeah, but without the Sacrifice.... the save you move/rename on the Windows side will be automatically deleted.  That's really the reason I made the post.  I've explained it all over the place, but now I'll save myself the effort and link it.  🤷‍♀️  Moving things into Steam is easy, just don't forget the .savegame extension.

Still, I covered everything you wrote with 'replace by renaming'. Ease of use is for wimps!
