To help people get the latest dev updates to frequently asked questions I've set up this FAQ thread. If you know of any more FAQ's that have been answered by the devs elsewhere, please comment below with a link to the post and I'll add it here.

General

People are having real issues with framerate, when will there be a decent performance update?

What does the current Xbox version include?
You can see the Update History here for both the PC and Xbox versions.

Can we have multiplayer coop? Pleeeeease...?
I mean, how hard can it be?!

(23rd August 2016) Our thoughts on this have become more clear now, as we've added more to the game and see how much work we still have to do on the game.

We are NOT going to be adding multiplayer of any kind to Subnautica. We would have to start over from scratch and it would take us years of work to do it.

I know that's not what you guys want to hear but we have our hands FULL with the basic v1.0 version of Subnautica.

(September 2015) Adding Co-Op or multiplayer is not simple, at all. It would require months of work. We want it to happen, but it would mean we basically stop working on the game right now, and do co-op for months. Currently we'd much rather make a great game first, then see if it's feasible for co-op to happen. That being said, most of us on the team want it to happen. We just can't promise it right now.
Flayra wrote: »
(26th May 2016) We would love to add co-op gameplay someday, but it will have to be a new game. It's waaaay too much work to simply "add" to Subnautica. We might make a standalone game focused on co-op (like "Subnautica Together") or maybe we'll make a sequel.

But it's clear that Co-op is something you guys would love and we'd love it too. Imagine piloting your Cyclops with a few people: one at the helm, another repairing/building machinery, another managing fuel and energy systems and another off on small missions in the Seamoth, reporting what they're finding?

I'm not sure how everything works/where things are and the game doesn't tell me anything. Where can I find out?
A huge part of the joy of Subnautica is exploring working things out for yourself, but if you're stuck you can always refer to the Subnautica Wiki page and there's a map here.

Will subnautica be coming to the PS4?

(2nd June 2016) There is a good chance of it, though we're not working on it right now. However, we're exploring the possibility.
Flayra wrote: »
(26th May 2016) We would love to bring Subnautica to the PS4. It's an awesome system and Sony seems to treat developers well.
However, they don't have "preview" program. So we can't ship it there until we hit v1.0.

Any chance of getting 60fps?
Obraxis wrote: »
(27th May 2016) Highly unlikely to hit 60fps on XboxOne, just not technically possible while keeping the game at the visual level we want.

The next update will have some improvements that should be noticeable in some places, but optimizations are not a quick-fix. They are complicated, often take a while and tend to go in towards the end of development so the game and gameplay itself can be a focus. We'll do the best we can as we develop the game to keep improving.

What are you guys working on at the moment?
Flayra wrote: »
(28th May 2016) We are working hard on performance as well. Graphics aren't the issue at the moment, it's mostly our streaming system, so we think we can make some noticeable improvements there. Probably not for the first patch, but in the ones after that (we want to get our currently done work on the PC in your hands as soon as possible).
For a detailed and up to date view of everything that's being worked on right now, along with an impressive To Do List, take a look at the Subnautica Development Blog.

https://trello.com/b/zpLYFyEu/subnautica-bugfixing - for the actual live fixing of bug reports

For the latest list of known bugs on the Xbox, please see @Luffy490 's bug thread [url="http://forums.unknownworlds.com/discussion/144444/subnautica-list-of-bugs-update-2-0-8-21-16-updated#latest]here[/url]. Please check this thread before posting any bugs you've found to avoid cluttering up the forum with duplicate bug reports.

The Debug Console
To get around may bugs, especially those that cause items to disappear or not spawn at all (like the blueprint bug) you can use the Debug Console in game to spawn items and perform other actions. To access it, SIMULTANEOUSLY press BR+LB+A on your controller, then enter one of the commands listed here or from this list of spawnable items. This is not a cheat as such and has been recommended by the Developers as a tool to get around bugs, although overuse may diminish your enjoyment of Subnautica.
If you are having any other bug related issues, please post them to the Subnautica Playtesting Blog. Alliteratively, please read @EVILONE15 's pinned and regularly updated Bugs On Xbox thread and post a comment there if your bug that is not mentioned.

Know of any specific dev answers to bug questions? Please comment with a link to the thread below. Thanks!

    I'm not sure if this is quite what you're after, but you can find the update history on the Subnautica Wiki here. That should give you some idea of what's included in the current Xbox version, although you'll have to follow the links to various Wiki pages to find out what is where in game.

    How about an auto-save feature whenever you enter an air chamber ( i.e., escape pod, base). Game crashes unpredictably on xbox, sometimes losing hours of work.
  • travislee1217travislee1217 usa Join Date: 2016-06-02 Member: 217996Members Posts: 7 Fully active user
    Yes exactly that would be cool man I wish microsoft would hurry up

    If it were that easy I'm sure they would have done it, but Microsoft's certification process makes that kind of thing anything but.
