Do the developers actually read anything here?

How long does it take for the developers to fix a almost game breaking bug?

The bug I am talking about it is where the prawn suit, gets stuck on the floor in the alien laboratories.
There is a post here describing the problem by several people, and this has 572 views.
There are also multiple post's on the steam forums, with several people complaining about the problem there.
I feel this really needs to be sorted out quickly because the prawn suit is definitely needed to finish the game in this area.

The developers seem to spend more time with, their new game, and the Xbox version of subnautica, and have put the PC version behind them.
This bug did not always exist, I have played through the game several times and never encountered it.
People are saying that this started with the last big update months ago. You broke it now fix it.

    In my opinion the developers have abandoned the original subnautica. The primary content facility is absolutely bugged, almost broken, apparently it has been that way for years. But they don't care because you still can finish the game so WHATEVER.

    They have moved to the new game because they have money there to get. I understand it. I don't even blame them. It's sad but this is how the world works I suppose.

    It's because you didn't say pretty please with a marble melon on top. That's why.

    They're still working on it. They updated to a new version of Unity, which probably allows more fixes, but unfortunately it broke some parts of the game. If you want to see the latest developer replies, they are at the top of the main Subnautica forum page (click here).

    Stuck, and just want to most recent base/Cyclops? Use "Warpme" command. Want to get out of the ceiling? Press F1 and note your camera postion. First number is North/South, second number is up/down, and third is East/West. Reduce the 2nd number by 10, then use "warp x y z" (where x, y, and z are the position you want to be).

    We're still updating the original game. There are daily check-ins to the Steam Experimental version with fixes and optimizations. We're close to putting out a new patch on PC/Mac but it needs a bit more testing. Note, we recently put out a patch for Subnautica 1 on XboxOne which will be coming to PS4 and PC/Mac soon: https://unknownworlds.com/subnautica/subnautica-xbox-one-update-1-0-0-35/

    If NS2 fails, follow my Nuke From Orbit Guide.

    I am reading in other topic that the xbox version is far behind the pc version. I suppose that then it makes sense... I mean, makes sense that the primary containment facility is still broken after so many years in the pc version if the xbox version takes 5 minutes to save as some people say.

    Will the new PS4 update try to fix that relative huge random portions of the map does not load when each time you enter the game? One time the whole floating islands mountain is not loaded in, somtimes large parts of ocean floor or walls are missing. Entering the Mushroom cave, 1/8 of the cave is not loaded in. I know this was a bug in the PC beta (might still be my PC can't play subnautica anymore), but never close to the exctent of the PS4 version.
