Ditto- I have seen dozens and dozens of people complaining that they simply can't find Uranium in space ( asteroids ), it is far too rare now. I also don;t understand why it was removed from planets considering it is naturally occuring on Earth. There is a difference between 'making survival more engaging/challenging' vs making it a head ache and massive chore...

I think I went through 60 asteroids in spectator mode trying to find it. Its nice that resources are rarer but space is BIG. It took me an hour and a bit of spectator searching. Had I done it on a server with no cheating, it would have taken a whole day. I even increased asteroid density but its still just as hard to find. It was a good choice for gameplay as it has really diversified the variety of builds, but it would also be nice to have very deep, rare deposits on the planet. I would say increase the rarity only a tiny bit. It makes for good pvp play fighting over fuel and power and uranium now has as much value as platinum.
I think part of this problem is that asteroids are spawning with no ore deposits at all on them. It used to be that all asteroids had at least two ores, but now every other asteroid is completely empty.
The sensible solution ( hence why Keen didn't even think of it ) would be to have a few different options for Ore Density in the World Settings- we have options for everything else that affect how easy or hard Survival mode is ( Drones, Pirates, Wolves, Encounters, Enemy ships, Meteoroids etc etc ), but the one thing that matters most ( the ability to build anything by finding and processing ores ) = no ability to alter, just got switched from 'lots' to 'hardly any' in the Survival update.
Wake up Marek, stop being so clueless.
