Update 0.9.2 is live!
Steam ‘Early Access’ players will receive this update today, August 6th, 2018.
Update 0.9.2 contains the groundwork for extensive changes to the crafting and resource systems, as well as additions to printer lists and changes to printers overall!
You can find these updates in 0.9.2.0, the current build of the game.
NEW RESOURCES AND RECIPE CHANGES
New resource deposits have been added to the solar system! Titanite, Wolframite, and Hematite deposits can now be found on the surface of planets and in caves. But you won’t be able to find all of these on Terran, intrepid Astroneers will have to travel the solar system in order to find the new resources.
- Titanium has been changed to be the refined form of Titanite.
- Wolframite and Hematite can be smelted into Tungsten and Iron, respectively.
New recipes have been added to include these new smelted resources! New resources need new recipes to print them! These are just a few items that will be using this new resource progression, be on the look out for more items in updates very soon.
- Drill Head: 1 Tungsten and 1 Resin
- Extra Large Platform: 2 Iron
- Extra Large Storage: 2 Iron and 2 Aluminum
- Fireworks: 1 Titanium
- Thruster: 2 Tungsten
– Medium Printer has been removed as part of an ongoing effort to streamline crafting. With the introduction of the Small and Medium Fabricators, the Medium Printer became increasingly redundant and created confusion about where objects can be crafted.
- All objects that previously printed from the Medium Printer can now be crafted from the Small Fabricator.
- Existing Medium Printers in saved games have been automatically converted to Small Fabricators.
– Thruster is now a craftable object. It is available in the Catalog for 2000 Bytes and prints from the Small Fabricator for 2 Tungsten.
– The respawn rate of Harvestables has been positively adjusted!
– EXO wrecks can now be found in caves! Adventurous Astroneers will also discover new large wrecks on the surface that hint to each planet’s theme.
– The orange launch button has been removed from the Shuttles. You can now use the Auxiliary keys (Z / X on keyboard or RB / LB on gamepad) to launch into orbit.
– Beacons have received an update and a bug fix.
- Beacons are once again visible when slotted. Now players actually can locate their vehicles if a beacon has been put in a slot on the chassis.
- They can now be turned off. This option is available when you finish cycling through all of the color options using the input keys.
- They can now be turned on, off, and their color can be changed using the aux keys when slotted onto an auxiliary slot on vehicles and backpacks.
