Having a great time with the game, however I've run into an issue (twice in two separate games). My hab won't produce either oxygen or water, but the modules are online (and water says producing in the hab status screen but nothing is happening) and diagnostics of each also indicates they should be producing. Not sure if I'm just missing something or what is going on.
Ok I'm not quite sure if this is a bug or I'm being an idiot. Maybe both.
I am on Sol 5. I've powered up the habitat and repaired everything. All the habitat stats were nominal. On Sol 4 I went outside and repaired everything I could with supplies gained from one of the supply dumps around the map and I went to sleep to save at around 22:00 Mars time. Before going back into the Hab however I was very low on power in my EVA suit, about 5% I think. I woke up after 6 hours sleep, filled up on calories and then went outside to continue repairs. After exiting the air lock I get the message that the exterior battery hasn't got enough charge to recharge the EVA suit. Odd but I Check the Hab's power and it was indeed low due to it being dark outside still.
I went back inside to wait for daylight and check the Hab's power until it was at 100%. I went back outside and got the same message that the external battery couldn't recharge the suit. By this time the EVA suits battery was at 0%. I quickly went back inside trying to think what I could do.
I decided to kill myself and revert back to the save from the night before. I assume the game saves every time you sleep. So I went outside the suit battery failed and I died.
I loaded my save game and I'm back in the HAB and after 30 second I die. It took me a while to work out why. I loaded again and quickly checked the Had Stats.
Power 50% and charging, so Nominal.
Temperature -60 Degrees and falling. Umm not nominal. :(
Checked my own health stats and sure enough my internal temperature was plummeting like a rock and I died again.
I loaded up one more time and this time as soon as I loaded I got into bed and slept. Woke up at seven in the morning and everything is fine. Or so I though.
I went outside and I get the same message that the External battery hasn't got enough power to charge my suit. So I'm stuck
So i figure this is what is happening. Because you start the game with only solar power and not enough RTGs to power the Hab systems through the night, by the middle of the night the HAB's temp has dropped to -60. This wasn't a problem before because I slept through the night and I assume the game doesn't check the internal temperature while you are asleep.
The second issue with the recharging the suit battery seems to be if you completely drain it the Hab can't recharge it. So I guess I'm stuck.
This might be a bit of an edge case but it could be very anoying with the fact yo only have one save so you cant go back and have to start again from scratch.
I have a copy of the save games both from the middle of the night with the ultra low temprature and from the morning when I cant recharge my suit. if you want them just let me know how to get them to you .
I like that I can use WASD. How about allowing the [SPACEBAR] to be used as a confirmation like the [ENTER] key.
I still die. I only found one habitat everytime. I found other things, collected many stuff to eat but it was to late to go back. The vitals were low. That you can only eat in the habitats raises the difficult level.
Oh will there be different difficult levels?
I was trying to bring the first navigation beacon online and when I would select the circuit board it would give me the stats for "Fuse 3". I could not get navigation enabled.
When entering habitat alpha the first time and accessing the panel I am unable to navigate to the menu on the left side of the screen using the arrow keys - I had to press E which creates a jarring UI experience because it switches to the datapad view when executing the "exit" montage.
If I Alt+Tab on Windows and then click to reopen the game my mouse is no longer locked to the context of the game. I my mouse moves to a different monitor and I click the game will minimize.
