    The bug with the loading ramps was not fixed? Too bad :(

    Lower the radiation on Skilion or give the player a Radiation Booster to find somewhere.

    I'd like to feedback about an important aspect of the starting mechanics from Akua. Observant players will notice that the only moon with a Promethium deposit will be Skilion, but this moon has a radiation level of 5. A small suit which a player can craft will protect against radiation levels up to 2. This would be a reason not to teleport to Skilion and instead search for a Radiation Booster somewhere on Akua, or another anti-radiation solution but there is none to find - at least I haven't succeeded.

    I suggest to put the radiation level of Skilion to level 2 or to give the player a radiation boost somewhere in one of the POIs on Akua. The medecines to prevent radiation effects are out-of-reach for even a large constructor and AFAIK there are no Doctors on Akua selling these radiation-immune injections which anyway wouldn't last long enough to permit an extensive visit to Skilion.
    It's true that the rad level 5 will not harm you immediately - should you teleport there - but seeing the numbers in the map a new player would refrain visiting this moon, unless he finds what he needs to avoid radiation desease.

    Maybe my feedback here is of no importance because you would find a anti-radiation solution on the other moons, so you must visit them first. In this case my post here is futile and all is ok.

    Applying the 'Fix' wipes sensor signals.

    I am following the main quest. There is an info that I should look for crashed TITAN on icy starter planet but I can not find it. Was flying and scanning around the planet and nothing. Anyone found it?

    The Planet seems to be called Sienna I believe and is a Snow Planet in the Eleon System. Not one of the Starter Moons.

    You need Gold to craft an EVA booster in order to explore the icy starter moon or the POIs in orbit. There is NO gold whatsoever in the starting system with the 4 moons so exploration at these locations is impossible, or yes?
    Also the 'Dig site' on Akua does nothing, I looted some containers, I have activated the switches and went underground, there I killed 1 infected NPC but that's all, nothing to find, no messages, no feedback from the game.

    One of the traders in the sanctuary on Omicron will sell you gold bars. Sell the other one sniper rifles for $$$ Mission quests sends you right to them. ;-)

    Thanks for the tip. I've made it into space in orbit of Akua, but not yet to Omicron, one of the POIs in orbit has a teleporter to it but I cannot go inside without dying soon, I only have a small suit and that's it.

    Travel Across the Desert of Skillon and you will find some Gold Nuggets. Enough to craft an EVA Boost.

    As already mentioned the gold surface rocks (bearings) can potentially be found in various locations on more than one of the starter planets.
    However, their chance is extremely low and is not a guarantee.

    Through the experimental phase all the way to stable and my many many various starts it has shown me that you can't count on finding them.
    With some seeds you scour entire planets without finding a single one. Other times you might get lucky and find 5 or 6 in one small biome.
    I definitely wouldn't be going out of my way to find them though.

    I find it easier to work up to warping to the nearby asteroid field or whatever and getting gold from the trader there.
    Nearly everything can be done without an EVA though just by utilizing your drone to mine, or staying nearby a powered enclosed cockpit and only staying out for very short trips, etc.

    Look underwater, in mountain biomes, and/or in the tundra bordering the poles. Last start, I found nine gold ores, and I didn't even look hard. Side note: those rocks in the tundra (there is plenty of Cobalt in this area) are snow-covered, making those at the highest and lowest latitudes difficult to identify.

    Thank you all for your tips, I obviously need to explore more and shift up a gear in my efforts :)
    The gamestart is very interesting now, I'm having fun, although: Masperon on foot with a motorbike, well, it's not for faint-hearted people...

    From my experience:
    - promethium and pentaxid are on Akua under water. Use drone if You do not have any suit.
    - level up to 5 by gathering plants and killing insects. Place mobile constructor as Your safe box and produce iron, copper and silicon bars. Build early survival small space vessel as soon as possible. Check the workshop and use blueprints. HV's will be useful later.
    - Spawn blueprints in creative mode, remove some equipment to lower level requirements and overwrite. Then use this BP in survival.
    - On Aqua there is no Zirax so feel free to build a base whenever You want. There will be no attacks (unless there is Talon or Polaris faction hostile to You)
    - Drone hatch is smart and useful thing when building vehiciles. Use Your drone to mine in space or to explore and salvage space wrecks (be prepared for evacuation. If there is an object with "!" on HUD run.
    - before going to sleep turn off all but the fridge.
    - Collect directly to container: Open inventory and connect with a container (yellow highlight appear). Then hit F5 to spawn a drone. Salvage bottom level of a building. When it collapses collect everything with "F" button. This way You can get lots of steel plates and other resources from collapsing building. Quick and comfortable.
    - Use drill in the same configuration as above. All ore goes directly to container.
    - Found interecting wreckage with some diamonds (like warp drive or turret etc.)? Find the core, destroy it and place Your core instead. Then collect block or device with multitool (do not salvage!).
    - Power saving: configure lights with sensors so it is turned off when You are out. Connect landing gear signal with landing lights - those stay turned off during flight.
    - Place some extra liftoff engines on Your SV or CV and link them with custom logic signal so they are turned off. Those will be needed when You find increased gravity planet.
    - You will not get any exp for enemies killed with turrets so configure turrets to aim particular targets. No more artilery shooting a bug.
    - SPOILER: produce ore scanners or sniper rifles as much as You can - sell them to traders. Open station services and buy everything You need. Remember that You can remove fuel , pentaxid and Oxygen from tanks.
    - Always play with CPU and Weight/Value ratio turned on. Try it once and You will never play different.
    - CV's weaponry: Only gatlings and canons work on planets or moons. Rockets, lasers etc work only in space. Despite what description says. Base weaponry works normal.
    - When placing orbital base hold "O" to position Yourself. Docking SVs or CVs is easier now.
    - Always read PDA for quest stages. Otherwise You will mess up Your main quest or loose waluable loot.
    - In STEAM set version upgrade to manual to avoid broken savegames when new verion is released.
    - Play fast because You might want to start over when new version with some cool changes appears :)

    To bypass the mining of some materials which are not present in the starter system, especially Zascosium, Sathium, Erestrium etc. you can sent all finished and unfinished materials into the factory after looting POIs, you need to place a core in them in order to retrieve the devices 1:1, and then sent them to the factory. For example salvaging some devices will give you Zascosium Alloys that you can directly put in the factory, or better: If you salvage a warp drive or a constructor 1:1 then you can also send it to the factory for your SV / CV and save a lot of grinding.

    Do You Devs plan to rebalance ground combat? I am trying to finish Derelic Ship part of main quest and found this to be a nightmare. I have died so many times I stopped counting. Enemies spawning behind my back in a room that I just checked is annoying, And Infected? Those are superhumans elite army that can hit me three times a row from so far away I can not see where from exactly.
    Red crosshair is invisible. Please add an option to change this.
    I have to have a break from this one. It is not a pleasure anymore. Especially that I managed to level up from 20 to 25 on;y on that part.

    I think that this game requires some serious rebalancing.

    When I played the game I whinged quite a bit about this. Its a pain to try and see the crosshair while in combat.
    I ended up installing a program called CrossOver that allows you to put a crosshair on your screen. Just pick the crosshair you want and position it in line with the game crosshair.

    Any news about the rework of Akua missions? I would like to increase reputation to friendly at least before moving to Omicron.
