This mod allows players to choose a planet to start on, popping open a menu to do so after they first land on Sylva.

Installation

Automatic

I recommend you use AstroModLoader, which you can find binaries for at Github.com, to manage this mod with a user-friendly GUI as well as to seamlessly ensure mod compatibility with most other mods you may wish to install.

Manual

You will need a copy of AstroModIntegrator; you can find a binary of it on the Astroneer Modding Discord community or build it from source at Github.com.

On Steam: Place the .pak file in the %localappdata%\Astro\Saved\Paks directory (create it if it does not already exist). Then, run AstroModIntegrator.

On the Windows Store: Place the .pak file in the %localappdata%\Packages\SystemEraSoftworks.29415440E1269_ftk5pbg2rayv2\LocalState\Astro\Saved\Paks directory (create it if it does not already exist). Then, run AstroModIntegrator.

Usage

  • When a player first lands on Sylva, they will see a menu which allows them to teleport to one the seven planets or a random planet to start off on.
  • Players who choose to teleport are moved to a random safe location on the planet they choose, and given a shelter and landing pad to start with.
  • If you and your friends wish to start at the same shelter, then one player should choose to alternate start before the other players join. That way, any new players to join the save will land at that new shelter, and they can press skip on the alternate start menu.
  • You can use this mod in singleplayer, in co-op, and on dedicated servers. All players will see the menu once they first land on Sylva, and each will have their own shelter at a random safe location if they choose to teleport.
  • This mod needs to be installed on both the client and the server.

Miscellaneous
