Strange asteroid deformation

error 404 shared this bug 2 years ago
Outdated

So i have over 300 hours ingame of which i spent most playing Lone survivor scenario on default setings . I stayed on the starting asteroid for most of that building and learning how to play. I only went around the space to mine resources and hunt AI ships. Never had much issues apart from ice growing over one of my doors one time.


So i found this large asteroid close by and decided to build a large shipyard there and relocate eventualy, since the starting asteroid got too small for my building needs.

By now i have spent some 10-20 hours on the new asteroid building a grinder pit and a system of refineries/assemblers ans whatever.

The strange thingh is that the asteroid started out as a smooth surface with normal asteroid shapes and features and despite beeing 1 km in lenght i could only find a few ore locations.

But now every time i log out or in the surface seems to change. There are strange spherical shapes growing on the asteroid that look like tumors.

They have a small speck of ore in the center and a spherical shaped stone formation around. They also all seem to be facing in the same direction.

They appear in the parts which i have excavated, they grow over my blocks and its generaly extremly annoying.

For now i am "curing" theese tumors with mining and explosives, but its geting unplayable.

I need a fast and straight answer on how to fix it before i spend any more time on this project.

One thingh is i did notice they started to appear in larger numbers after i first time used the alt or cntrl +f10 menu to clean up debris and floating objects, i always assumed that destroyed ai ships get deleted automaticaly, but i was wrong. I found parts of ships floating around even 3000km away lol.

So....thank you all and help me.

Hello, about those deformation again, is there a way to keep meteros without going to safe world seting, but without them deforming asteroids?

I dont mind welding up damage after a meteor storm but those spheres of rock that for on impact are too much.

Also i like having meteor showers every now and than, atleast my defence grid has somethingh to shoot at.

The deformation in your image are meteor impact. Te prevent meteor you can change the world setting to "safe". If you world setting is already "safe" then this would be a bug.

Hi.

I have also been geting a lot of meteor hits on the starter asteroid and i have witnesed them hitting other asteroiids when i was mining/exploring.

There were never any such deformations to other asteroids, always only a litle dust and that was it.

I will be more observant next time i play and there is a meteor warning, and will report back.

Hello.

I stood outside and watched and witnesed it first hand. Those realy are meteor impacts. Now i can either turn on "safe" world setting or build a lot of turrets to shoot meteors down.

Stil i wonder why does this asteroid get deformed from impacts.

I have witnesed meteor impacts on starting asteroid and a couple others and there were no deformations.


Cheers.

they target the zone were the player is and powered grid so you'll find new asteroid not impacted but if you mine there for some time they will probably become impacted

So is the starting asteroid difrent than others.

I have played on it for over 250 hours and it was hit many, many times asnd there are no such anomalies.
