(Quote) Hi @Dextrius , this doesn't sound like an issue of just slow saving but one where it is caught indefinitely in some state where it can't finish saving. * When you try saving often, how long between saves would you say you wait? * How much time is there between saves where you get into these indefinite saving situations? * Do any of those >5min saves ever complete? There are two issues I'm seeing: save time can be very long and interrupt gameplay, and that larger saves are getting into a state where they fail to complete and you're left losing a large chunk of play time after waiting an incredibly long time. I'm going to talk to the team about some fail safes and solving the issue, I'd like to get the fail safes in ASAP so that you have the chance to retry saving in a worst case scenario. I'm really sorry this happened to you, and if you don't mind me reaching out to you directly I can try to work with you to reproduce this issue on our side.
I'm really sorry this is happening to some of you, and that it is blocking you from completing/continuing your game. This issue seems to be console specific and it is on my radar. In the meantime, for those stuck and would like the recipe unlocked, in the latest update there was a command console/developer menu added. While in your game(somewhere with oxygen recommended) if you press both bumpers and the X(PS4)/A(Xbox One) buttons you will open a console command where you can type: "unlock precursorkey_blue" then press R2 to execute it. That should unlock the recipe. Let me know if that works for you.
I was just looking into this because I was checking into another issue with a similar setup, I noticed that in some circumstances the water is not draining out of the room. One work around I discovered was building staircases down/up it seemed to instantly fix that issue. Were your bases with the water flowing through them all stacked all-purpose rooms? or were any on stilts above the shallows? I'm only noticing the issue with stacked bases.

@BinaryAbyss Thank you for posting this separately, it is easier to get lost in a larger list. There is an issue I'm aware of where the scanner isn't picking up resources that exist out in the world, but it doesn't find them until you've loaded the terrain around the scanner room (often times loading a save game or where you travel back to your base before looking at the scanner can affect this). This is probably what @Lyalius is noticing. This issue you're noticing where it is tracking them but the nodes are not showing up once you swim there is something else. * Are you seeing this on PS4? * Did you notice any issues with the world loading in(the ground parts of the world)? * Can you go to feedback in game where the scanner room is and one where the node is not showing up and send feedback and mention "madsauce" ? This will give me some details about where you're at in the world. * Is this a 100% of the nodes are not showing up where they should be, or something else like when they show up they're all there or when there are some missing nodes they're all missing? @Lyalius thank you for that extra info.
