    Playing the game on the One X. However I keep hitting the block limit because I have so many blocks stashed in my inventory through picking them up with a magnet then they automatically transfer into it when I go near the black hole at a terminal.


    I have hundreds of blocks I don't need and there is seemingly no way to just delete blocks to free up the space. Can anyone help please?

    I think you've misunderstood the block limit (I don't know if it's explained at all well anywhere - I don't have a console).

    The limit only applies to the blocks of you techs that are out in the world (and the resource chunks that are held by them). So putting blocks (and techs) into inventory is the best thing you can do to ease the limit.

    On a side note, if you do actually want to 'delete' blocks, you can use a scrapper attached to a delivery canon, to sell it's components and constituent resources. (Or you can lay them on the ground and shoot them to destruction.)

    The thing is though I only have two techs and there's not even 100 blocks between them. And when I do take the blocks outta my inventory and shoot them, the amount of blocks I have left still doesn't go down .

    That's correct. Don't do that. Blocks in inventory do not count against the block allowance.

    Do you have anchored techs around, like auto-miners? Each separately anchored block (or tech) counts as an extra 200 against the allowance.


    What happens if you drive 1km away, does that change the usage? If not, could you upload a (decent quality) photo of what's going on on your screen?

    Is the block allowance for a certain game mode? Would PC have it in campaign mode?

    I totally missed the boat on this news.

    Nice. Maybe they can add this bit on PC for loose rubber resources bouncing around in the middle of nowhere. :D

    edit: Also, thank you for the link.

    If you want to delete blocks, make a box with an open top, and cover it in either front facing lasers or flame throwers.

    As long as the bit that is firing isn't on the same tech as the bit holding the parts I find big cannons to be superior.
