This page is dedicated to showing all the removed or unused content in Astroneer.

Medium Printer[edit | edit source]

The original Medium Printer was removed as part of the efforts to streamline the crafting system. Its role was replaced by the Small Printer and Medium Printer, with some recipes moved to the Vehicle Bay.

Geothermal Generator[edit | edit source]

The Geothermal Generator was a module that would be placed on top of Geothermal vents, and would provide a passive flow of power, similar to what the RTG currently does. It was removed before the first release to the public due to issues of not working properly and vents were buggy.

Refinery[edit | edit source]

The Refinery was a module that would use power to turn Ice into Hydrogen, similar to how the Chemistry Lab converts Ammonium into Hydrazine.

It can be seen in the first developer lets play.

Hazards[edit | edit source]

Multiple hazards from Alpha were removed, such as Storms and flora hazards such as Acid Pots/Pumpkins and Cave Lures.

Acid Pots were replaced by Hissbines, while Cave Lures were removed with no replacement.

Stationary Crane[edit | edit source]

A crane could be seen in the first developer lets play, along with it drilling ice.

Rail Network[edit | edit source]

The Rail Network was required for the Refinery and Crane to work. It would transfer power, and resources along its rails. It can be seen being used in the first developer let's play. A primitive version of this was seen in the reveal trailer.

Directional Solar Panel[edit | edit source]

Just a giant solar panel that can only point in one direction, like a smaller version of the solar panel wreck.

3 Wheeled Rover[edit | edit source]

The same as the current Large Rover, but is a longer version of Medium Rover with a Tier-4 Connector.

Coal[edit | edit source]

Coal was a resource that powered Medium Generator and had high value when the Trade Platform could trade any resource. Its functions were replaced by Carbon.

Vehicle Bay[edit | edit source]

The Vehicle Bay was where large items were created. With the 1.0 release, the crafting functionality was replaced by the Large Printer, with the landing zone functionality moved to the Landing Pad.

Shuttle Seat and Large Shuttle Seat[edit | edit source]

The Shuttle Seat and Large Shuttle Seat were virtually identical to their rover counterparts, only visually being different, and were not needed once the new shuttles were implemented.
