    Astroneer Update 1.44 Patch Notes (v1.26) – Sep 20, 2022

    Astroneer update 1.44 (v1.26) is available now for Steam, Xbox, and PlayStation. According to the official Astroneer 1.44 patch notes, the update sees the return of the EXO F.A.R.M event, a new vehicle, a new small piece of equipment, and some other curious new discoveries across the planets. Apart from this, Astroneer version 1.44 also includes a variety of bug fixes and quality-of-life improvements.

    Previously, a big Astroneer update 1.43 addressed some bugs with slots on rail items, Junction failures, Usagi’s NavPoints, and some other minor issues with the Rails Update. Unfortunately, many players are still experiencing several issues. Today’s Astroneer version 1.44 will fix a few of these issues.

    Check out more details below.

    Astroneer 1.44 Update Patch Notes – September 20, 2022

    Gravity Globe

    This curious contraption seems to be an evolution on EXO’s recreational line of enrichment items, ingeniously augmented with a gyro-stabilized control platform in its interior. While simplistic in its appearance, the Gravity Globe harnesses some of EXO’s most advanced technologies, allowing it to roll against gravity (within reason), and even perform small ‘hops’ to clear minor obstacles. Just like the more primitive Recreational Spheres, the Gravity Globe is an ideal enrichment activity for all Astroneers (and other sentient beings, where appropriate).

    • Trade Platform: 8x Astronium
    • Shredding Output: 1x Scrap
    • Power Draw: [ERROR – PROPULSIVE MECHANISM UNRECOGNIZED]

      • Duplicating an item that is snapped to a slot while held will automatically slot the duplicate item.

      • Missions with key items will be automatically tracked
      • Missions that are unlocked when a tracked mission is completed will be automatically tracked.
      • Scrolling through the mission/log lists will clamp to the top or bottom entries, instead of wrapping around to the other end.

      • The icons shown within its control panel and on the outside of the module now cycle the currently requested items.

    • Tooltips will not display for items whose control panels are currently open.
    • The collision volumes on most small slots have been tuned with a lower profile, leading to fewer instances of the cursor targeting an unintended slot.

    • Rover power cables are no longer forced to be directional when attached to non-rover items (like platforms).
