Windows Store v. Steam 

I recently tried out the Astroneer trial on the Windows Store running version 0.2.10109.0. I was surprised to find out that the game ran quite smoothly with no noticeable hiccups while exploring or altering the terrain.  Although there was no frame rate counter, it seemed to average at around 40fps. 

The Steam version ( on the other hand, for whatever reason, experiences lots of stutter. The game hits a 60fps mark while panning the camera or at a standstill, but any movement will cause the game to stutter. The stutter is even more apparent while sprinting. 

Does anyone else have this issue?

I'm experiencing the same issue; however, I was able to play the Steam version for several hours before the stuttering began. It's funny; was remarking about how smooth the game felt just yesterday, and today it's just been nonstop stuttering.


My Specs:


  • CPU : Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570K CPU @ 3.40GHz
  • Graphics: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760
  • Memory: 8135 MB
  • OS: Windows 10 Home (64-bit) - build 14393

Just noticed that the stuttering is most noticeable when my astroneer is tethered. In fact, I can't say that I've encountered any stuttering while untethered.
