Hydrazine Catalyzer Module now available to build New Boost Mod Augment is now available . Fuel Condenser changes: The fuel condenser now requires multiple charges to create a full canister of refined Hydrazine, and also reusable canisters to put that Hydrazine in. New Power Dynamic has now been implemented ° Deforming, flattening, or removing terrain no longer uses backpack battery power. Deform forever! The backpack no longer "trickle charges". That means if you run out of power, you are out until you can generate or find more. Be careful! Printing from the backpack printer now draws power . Augments also now draw power when activated on your terrain tool. Deforming with the drill head fills connected canisters. OTHER EXCAVATION UPDATE CHANGES Adding terrain now requires stored terrain from reusable containers Added a new Soil Hose to the Deform Tool to show Soil usage between the Deform Tool and Canisters in the Backpack. Added Soil gauge to the Terrain Brush Updated Deform Tool to have a burn off valve to indicate lost terrain when Canisters are full Revised Soil usage to have a 1:1 relationship with changes made to terrain. ‘Flatten’ mode now collects or consumes Soil contextually. Opening Backpack while the Deform Tool is equipped will now pop out the Deform Tool automatically. Likewise, closing the Backpack with the Deform Tool popped out will automatically equip it. Pressing the Deform Tool ‘equip’ button/key while the Backpack is open will toggle popping out the Deform Tool instead of closing the backpack and equipping it. Indicator slots can now pull resources from Deform Tool in addition to the the Backpack. Deform Tool slots are now available when quick-storing items to the Backpack. When dying, any items attached to the Deform Tool or Backpack’s Auxiliary Slots are dropped with the Backpack itself instead respawning with the Player. When respawning, the Astroneer will now descend from the Space Station in their Habitat. Added new tutorial sequence to introduce Soil collection and changes to power usage. (Note that new saves will have to complete this tutorial before all starting recipes are made available) All Augment recipes now (temporarily) unlocked until the new Research System is released. Have fun! AUDIO CHANGES Mixed, Mastered, & Implemented new music assets BUG FIXES The Thruster now plays sounds when it activates and deactivates Fixed an issue where audio occasionally did not play when removing terrain Fixed an issue where Beacon icons would become inaccurate while viewing from orbit Partially fixed an issue where dead Astroneer backpacks would use world lighting, making it difficult to see what it is on them in low light situations. Future updates will have a more complete fix. Beacon collision model has been changed so it is no longer spherical. No more escaping Beacons! Driving past conduits on Rovers no longer pops attached objects off the front and back connectors Fixed an issue where Rovers would fly into space when loading a save from a rover seat Fixed several issues with Rovers displaying inconsistent physics Fixed an issue with Rovers not having the power to perform basic intended functionality Sandstorm Attenuation should now be working properly Fixed an issue where Rovers would load in incorrect positions when quitting to Main Menu then reloading the Saved Game. Back to top Patch 201 Version Number: 0.3.10201.0 Type: Early Access (Pre-Alpha) Release Date: 15th September 2017 Original Post:  Patch Notes: UPDATES Added the Alignment Augment (This new augment creates a flat plane that is perpendicular to the curve of the planet. Unlike the existing Flatten mode, which flattens based on a selected voxel and mimics that angle) Changes to tether placement (Pressing the “place tether” button will now place a Tether post at the Astroneer’s feet.) Gamepad Control Changes (When using the terrain tool, the camera now defaults to a fixed over-the-shoulder view, and holding LT unlocks the cursor and puts you in the old default mode) New sounds and updates to old sounds have been implemented Connecting two conduits together now has audio. Worklight now has audio Vehicle enter and exit animations now have sound effects. Beacon audio has been updated FIXES Fixed a rare crash, that according to engineers was “super weird, and something that should never occur,” involving the game trying to access non-existent Rover wheels. Fixed a crash that occurred while trying to change resolution in cases where the settings .ini file had become corrupted. Fixed an edge case where the game would crash while unplugging the controller and holding any button. Fixed a Multiplayer crash that would occur if a Client player joined a game while the Host was not on Terran. Two different actions can no longer be assigned to the same key / button Fixed an issue where audio values reset to 0 after changing them during active gameplay, and then terminating the title. Fixed an issue on Xbox One where brightness setting temporarily persisted when backing out of the pause menu without selecting 'Apply and Resume.' Steam client Options menu text adjusts more elegantly to changing window sizes or resolutions (except for very small resolutions or unusual window shapes). Changes to Options menu now persist between sessions on Xbox One Fixed an issue in Multiplayer games, where Smelter audio loop continued playing for the Client player. Fixed an issue where the Heartbeat audio loop continuously played after returning to main menu. Fixed an issue on Xbox One where players would respawn partially underground after dying by falling Reintroduced the plumbline to Beacons Fixed an issue where items would go on a beautiful journey into space if not collected from an dead Astroneer before a second death occurs. Fixed a major issue where saves were disappearing on Xbox/Win10 Fixed a bug that was causing Rovers to fall through the world when loading into a saved game Astroneers should no longer get stuck inside base modules as they are being built. Fixed a bug where Tethers were not auto-highlighting for selection when playing with a controller. Back to top Hotfix 200 Version Number: 0.3.10200.0 Type: Early Access (Pre-Alpha) Hotfix Release Date: 19th August 2017 Original Post:  Patch Notes: Fixed an issue where audio settings for music and sounds defaulted to zero Fixed a multiplayer crash related to clients grabbing research chests and then crashing Fixed an issue that would cause some savegames to cause the game to crash on load. Fixed some default resolution issues. This is still a work in progress, and users who still have resolution issues should follow these steps: Go to - SteamLibrary\steamapps\common\Astroneer Pre-Alpha\Astro\Saved\Config and delete your GameUserSettings.ini file. OR Users\"your username"\AppData\Local\Astro\Saved\Config\WindowsNoEditor.
Back to top Patch 199 Version Number: 0.3.10199.0 Type: Early Access (Pre-Alpha) Release Date: 17th August 2017 Original Post:  Patch Notes UPDATES The Options Menu has been completely overhauled. You can now: Adjust display options including VSYNC and keep those changes Adjust graphics options to suit your hardware, including Shadow Quality, AA, PP and effects. Audio options now actually work! Adjust them to your liking. Keybindings on PC will now remain saved between sessions, with some added options like mouse sensitivity, toggling the hold to sprint, and others. Right now navigating and adjusting options in this menu is a little wonky, as you have to use the keyboard. Didn't want to hold it out of this update just for that reason. This menu will continue to be updated over the course of the next few releases. The Trade Module has received some bug fixes and interaction improvements, such as: The maximum return value is always the number of slots on the trade platform rocket. Now, once you reach the maximum return value, you will not be able to add more resources to any remaining open slots. If you add an item that pushes the trade value above the maximum, or switch the return item to something with a more favorable exchange rate, the actual return will always be clamped to the maximum. Resources that are on the trading platform already when the maximum return value is hit or exceeded can always be removed (but cannot be attached again unless removing them causes the return value to dip below the maximum). Beacon colors can now be changed. Audio has been migrated to the Wwise Engine from Unreal 4 and remixed using the new technology. New cave exploration music tracks added. Remixed / mastered existing music with additional instruments added. Tracks broken down into separate layers to leverage Wwise game states. Music becomes distorted when low on oxygen. Music changes based on time of day. Music now streams rather than load entirely on game start, reducing RAM impact Sound is sent through a reverb when underground. Footstep sfx are affected by the movement speed of the player. Ambience loops no longer heard when at the main menu or orbiting a planet. Both the medium and small generator’s audio slows down when their “fuel” is near empty. When death occurs, sounds stop playing earlier. Music does not abruptly start again when death occurs, it now fades back in over an extended period of time. Wind turbine audio more appropriately matches their animation frequency. Sandstorms now have improved distance attenuation and better stereo / surround panning. Sandstorm rock impact added for when the player gets hit by a boulder. Low oxygen breathing audio now triggered more abruptly rather than a gradual fade in. Rover tire audio no longer plays when vehicle is in the air. Rover engine audio no longer plays when rolling unpowered down an incline Rover engine audio revs when vehicle is being powered and leaves the ground. Rover shutdown sound added Improvements to the active voice count in the game, allowing for slight performance gains. Each suit now has a unique Death animation. FIXES Fixed several issues causing Multiplayer crashes which occurred when Client players returned to their base after venturing far away from it. Fixed numerous Multiplayer crashes related to interacting with items in the world as a client Fixed a Multiplayer issue that prevented Win 10 players from connecting to Xbox players Fixed a number of performance degradation issues relating to base conduits. Fixed several audio issues where sounds would persist even after the event has ended, including: Biome Ambience SFX will no longer play when the player is in space. In Multiplayer games, the sound effect of building loops no longer continues playing for the Client player. Fixed issues with SFX being played from sources not close to player. Fixed issue where Sandstorm audio would continue after the storm ended. The sound of oxygen being replenished no longer persists when disconnecting from the oxygen tether before the tank has fully recharged. Fixed issue where the ambient overworld wind sounds did not change when going deep underground. Fixed intermittent issue where the Rover did not make any sound when driven. Fixed missing audio upon Pajama Suit Astroneer death Fixed missing audio upon Bubble Suit Astroneer death Fixed “double death” issue with Astroneer taking fall damage and dying again when respawning after falling from a high altitude. Collecting multiple resources with the Drill will no longer cause all the open slots to break. Fixed issue where Resource items would float off after being blown away during a storm Fixed issue where Save Slot 1 was sometimes overwritten when creating save data in Save Slot 2 and beyond. Fixed minor but extremely annoying issue where newly built base conduits would not follow the hologram path. Upon death, previous backpack inventory should no longer appear hovering next to the Habitat. Fixed a major issue where performance would severely degrade when players opened the Options menu Fixed issue where incomplete nuggets of Power were not consumed when placed on a slot. Fixed issue where Terrain Tool Augments were not working correctly KNOWN ISSUES On Xbox One, any changes made to the options menu will not persist between sessions. This will be fixed soon. Some “vocal” efforts play on the server when activated by the client. Sound for some players is defaulted to 0 on startup. Get into that new menu and turn it up! When the game is in fullscreen, changing resolution has no effect
Back to top Hotfix 197 Version Number: 0.3.10197.0 Type: Early Access (Pre-Alpha) Hotfix Release Date: 28th July 2017 Original Post:  Patch Notes: UPDATES The effects of storms have now been scaled down. They will still cause things to blow away, but your rovers will now no longer be in perilous danger whenever the wind blows. FIXES Upon death, ghost Astroneer corpses appear at your base. When basebuilding, conduits stray of of their intended path when resin is placed on them In MP games, Host players will see worklights illuminated for themselves and Client players, but Client players will not see the light Issue where the transform of an object moving into the backpack isn't set correctly, resulting in the item appearing inside the Astroneer
Back to top Patch 196 Version Number: 0.3.10196.0 Type: Early Access (Pre-Alpha) Release Date: 21st July 2017 Original Post:  Patch Notes: UPDATES Migrated to Unreal Engine version 4.15.

FIXES Spikers should once again be visible to Client players in Multiplayer games. Client players should no longer be generating different terrain than the Host in Multiplayer games. Fixed a recurring crash during the object update cycle. Object updating is now more efficient. Full tanks no longer appear empty to Client players in Multiplayer games. The Smelter will no longer lose resource nuggets if there are no slots available on the module, nuggets will fall to the ground instead. Fixed an edge-case, but annoying, issue where players are unable to proceed with the game after clicking the take-off button at the end of the landing sequence. Fixed a crash that occurs when players attempt to load a previously saved game from the Main Menu. Xbox players should now be able to join a previously suspended online game session. Fixed a nondeterministic terrain generation issue which resulted in terrain seams around the landing zone. Several fixes to the Gravity system should reduce instances of Vehicles and unearthed objects floating away. Fixed issue where the Smelter would be restored to a bugged state if the game was saved during the smelting process. Fixed issue where the Research Module would be restored to a bugged state if the game was saved at the wrong moment during chest unlock. Fixed numerical error buildup in camera system causing jitter and drift.
