r/Astroneer – Update 1.18 Patch Notes!


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.

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.
  • Pieces of debris.
  • Planets in the shuttle view.

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).
