I know this thread is old, but hopefully it still gets checked from time to time by the developers. I wanted to play a good amount of hours(200+) before offering any feedback. There is only one thing I have to suggest:
1.Totally rework a broken MAJOR current feature:
The resource distribution system needs to be changed. I am going to quote someone from earlier to begin.
This is exactly how I feel. I have spent over 150 hours digging on all moon and ring planets, as well as a lot on my starter planet of Solum. Finding resources is just straight up hit or miss and it is very frustrating. So why is it hit or miss? Simply looking at the resource profiles in the game files tells us why.
Every ore, minus fossils, has a chance to spawn on the Y coordinate from 0-255. This means everything can spawn everywhere. I think this needs to be more defined based on value of the ore. The fossil set up is the perfect example of this system. Small fossils can only spawn between 0-100, medium between 0-75, and large between 0-50.
I think all ores need to adhere to this type of set up. Examples would be: Copper 0-255, Soft Coal 0-255, Iron 0-200, Coal 0-150, Gold 0-150, Silver 0-150, hard coal 0-75, gems 0-75, titanium 0-60. Pretty simple, the rarer the resource, the further down you have to go to find it.
I just feel there needs to be a little more reliability of where you can find ores/gems. You can even have certain ores/gems be biome specific. In this case, you need to add the current biome to the debug screen because there is no way of knowing when you transitions between two underground.
Also, I don't like the regeneration. Let me give you an example. I found a cave on Munteen VII that is filled with hundreds of amethyst. I was smart and created a location to it. Every 24 hours I can warp over there and the cave is full of amethyst again. Should that be the case? You want people just camping certain spots for resources? I thought when regeneration came through, it would randomize, not replace what was taken. Now the amethyst isn't in the exact same spots every time, but it's always there in huge quantities.
GOLD! Please do something about the spawning of gold. I'm sorry, but it is so rare it sickens me. Even though the spawn chance is higher on moons/ring planets, I still rarely find the stuff.
At this point in time, this system is really the one thing holding me back from telling people they need to play this game. It is frustrating digging for hours with little to show for it.
