[QUOTE=InkyTheGhost;3295054]...each update deleted a little bit more of my save game. This last update deleted my charcter, all recipes (I had a lot) and the portal to the third planet. Am I correct in thinking I should just erase the adventure file and start a new one?
That's what I would do, although you should probably contact XsX & Jack first by making a report on their forums in case they are interested in having you send them your adventure save files so they can try and figure out the root cause.
I could move my loot to a new home planet, then start over and look for portal pieces. I'm only bummed about losing recipes, because I enjoyed looking for them.
Also, do you need to find recipes for poles/lures? Fishing sounds pretty fun.
You do need to find the new recipes related to fishing (finally found the fishing pole shortly before dinner) but I wouldn't sweat either that or losing your recipes too much. I tested it once (a few updates ago mind you, but still) how long it took to fill the craft book from scratch and it was maybe 8 total hours of mining before I had 100% of the recipes. They drop frequently when mining underground. And if it really bothers you, it's only a $0.99 tip to the devs to unlock all recipes instantly anyhow.
