Game crashes and a possible easy fix

Recommended Posts

Hello Devs,

Let me begin by commending you on a wonderful game. It’s original and very entertaining. I’ve owned Astroneer since it was first available on Xbox. The new additions th I the game are all most welcome and have reignited my passion for playing. I am however experiencing some issues that I hope can be easily resolved. I’ll try to be brief and thorough. 
1. Game crashes.

 I am experiencing game crashes while entering vehicles and I believe am know why. I make extensive use of the drill and paver to navigate practically everywhere. This has led to me leaving quite a trail of leftover resources from in my wake as I go. These resources remain and are building up in amounts and persist indefinitely. I believe that the game making the effort to save each of these individual leftovers every time an enter a vehicle are causing the crashes. The crashes are becoming more and more frequent as my progress through the planets goes on. And the size of my save in terms of memory is very quickly increasing. I am really hoping that I don’t have to abandon this play through when I am so close to finishing. My suggestion is to have the game delete or at least not save any items not either attached to a structural item, your backpack, or their original environmental position. This deletion could occur each time a save is loaded or each time a logout from a save occurs.

2. Vehicle paver functionality. 
 I am noticing that as I pave my vehicle and character gets stuck on the new ground as if there is an obstacle even though there isn’t. I have no suggestion for this but wanted to include it. It’s only an annoyance. 
 

3. Drill Functionality

As I am drilling and paving my way along I find a myself getting stuck a lot on resources ejected by the drill which end up under my vehicle and trailers. It helps a lot that I can point the ejector to the side and an think if the resources were ejected with just a bit more force they would clear the side of my vehicle much more often allowing me to maintain a straighter path. 
 

4. Pathing while using the drill and pager.

I find it difficult at times to drive my vehicle while tracking the terrain and using the drill and paver simotaniously particularly while I am towing multiple trailers behind me. By that I mean since the elevation for the paver is controlled by the camera the paver elevation is often obscured by the vehicle itself especially while tunneling underground. My suggestion for this would be to link an up and down function to the left and right bumper buttons and to move the on off function of the pager to another unused button like X or AThis way I can maneuver the third person camera without affecting the elevation and allow me to see where I am going. 
 

5. A small request.

A compass function for the vehicles would make navigation so much quicker and easier and I would thank you greatly. Just at the top of the screen perhaps. 
 

Thank you all so much for your kind attention.
