1- I think there should be a way to select how real you want equipment failures and errors to be. Having to reload a save game 5 or more times when you send down a new rover because there is a 80% chance that it will crash or one of the wheels have an error as soon as you roll off the ramp is not fun to me.
2- While being in the Rover you should be able to Time-Accelerate, driving 200m at such slow speeds isn't especially interesting.
Love the game, Keep up the great work!!!
