Astroneer Wiki

Hello all editors and users of the Astroneer Wiki! We are in the process of updating and switching over to use the new Fandom Desktop skin on the wiki. There will be many changes over the coming days, but the main goal is to keep the wiki feeling the same, as much as we can! If you notice any issues once the swap is made, please post them to the Admin Noticeboard so we can address it right away. We are also going to be completing the update to the Astroneer Wiki:Style guide, so there is a more up to date guide on how to style the wiki going forward.

Astropedia Changes and Improvements[]

Astropedia Quick Access: A number of objects in the game now have quick access to relevant Astropedia information. When viewing a tooltip of one of these items, long press to open the Astropedia. These items include:

  • All ingredient holograms.
  • Planets in the shuttle view.
  • Pieces of debris.

Updated Astropedia Information: Numerous Astropedia pages have been added or updated with more relevant information.

Added Pages[]

  • Automation Items (Auto Arm, Auto Extractor, and Canisters)
  • Logic Items (Sensors, Motion Sensors, and Repeaters)
  • Alternate Crafting Modules (Soil Centrifuge, Shredders, and Trade Platform)

Updated Pages[]

  • All Planet pages have been given an update, giving more information about resources available on that planet and where to find them.
  • All Resource pages have been updated to give more information on how to acquire each of the resources (locations, modules, etc).

Emote Selection Wheel[]

A new selection UI has been added for emotes. The new UI provides a visual preview of each assigned emote, and paves the way for more than four assignable emotes in the future. It also gives gamepad users access to a fourth assignable emote at long last!

The wheel is activated with the [G] key on keyboard, or the [D-pad Up] button on gamepad.

Emotes are selected with the [Mouse] or [Right Thumbstick], and activated by clicking with the [Left Mouse Button] or [Right Trigger], or by releasing the emote wheel key/button while an emote is selected.

We’re officially two years old this February! To celebrate, players logging in during a particular timeframe will receive a unique party hat. Watch our socials for more details!
