I know this seems like a stupid question, but here goes.  I am running the Windows version (not Steam) and I can't figure out how to have more than 1 save.  I had a bad experience with tearing while drilling to the core and the only save I had kept taking me back to the problem area and I couldn't go back to a time before the tearing issue.

Have you tried:

-restarting steam?

-restarting your computer?

-searching the interwebs for similar problems?

-uninstalling and reinstalling Astroneer?

-checking firewall perms?

Also,  can you provide pictures of this "tearing"?

There is no in-game funtion to have multiple save file currently. You can only backup your save file manually. The save file is located under C:\Users\(Your user name)\AppData (hidden)\Local\Astro\Saved\SaveGames. The filename format is "savename$date-time". Everytime you quit the game or enter a space shuttle/rover seat/shelter the game updates that save file. You can copy that file to another folder as backups. When you would like to restore, quit the game first, delete the newly generated savefile, then copy the backup file back to the original folder. Now re-enter the game and you can load your backup save data. Hope that helps.
