Update 01.110 - Local coordinates sector, Bugfixes

This week we added a new feature that makes the connection of two stations easier when they are built in each other's vicinity. So from now on, you don’t need to use the merge blocks to connect them. Newly placed station creates an area of 1000 cubic meters around it.
When you try to place another station within the area, it will be aligned by default with the first station, therefore you can connect them by blocks.
And last but not least, we have fixed more bugs.

Update 01.109 - Intuitive planetary building, Bugfixes

After the release of Planets we are focusing this week on bug fixing and improving the building process.
Placing your first block (base station) on a planet surface is now much more intuitive for newcomers and returning players. Blocks are aligned with gravity by default. You can start new grids (small/large ships, vehicles, base stations) from toolbar icons without going to G screen. This is the first iteration and more improvements are planned for the planetary building process.

Über dieses Spiel

Space Engineers is a sandbox game about engineering, construction, exploration and survival in space and on planets. Players build space ships, space stations, planetary outposts of various sizes and uses (civil and military), pilot ships and travel through space to explore planets and gather resources to survive. Featuring both creative and survival modes, there is no limit to what can be built, utilized and explored.

Space Engineers features a realistic, volumetric-based physics engine: everything in the game can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed. The game can be played either in single or multiplayer modes.

Volumetric objects are structures composed from block-like modules interlocked in a grid. Volumetric objects behave like real physical objects with mass, inertia and velocity. Individual modules have real volume and storage capacity.

Space Engineers is inspired by reality and by how things work. Think about modern-day NASA technology extrapolated 60 years into the future. Space Engineers strives to follow the laws of physics and doesn't use technologies that wouldn't be feasible in the near future.

Space Engineers concentrates on construction and exploration aspects, but can be played as a survival shooter as well. We expect players will avoid engaging in direct man-to-man combat and instead use their creativity and engineering skills to build war machines and fortifications to survive in space and on planets. Space Engineers shouldn’t be about troops; it should be about the machinery you build.

Early Access-Review
Space Engineers is a sandbox building game, much like minecraft and the like, though with a somewhat different approach. As with other games of this subgenre, in the beginning you will spend most of your time minig for resources, building your first constructions and learning about the possibilities of the game and world around you - though "world around you" literally means a whole, full-scale solar system with asteroids, planets and a lot of empty space in between, if you so choose during map generation. SE also offers a creative mode for free building without all of the survival elements. Unlike some other games of the genre, SE uses a great voxel-based 3D rendering engine, with nice clean textures and brilliant lighting and specular mapping, so graphics range from quite nice to really specatcular in some moments. The core unique feature of the game though is it's physics simulation, with gravity fields, correct propulsion, ineratia dampening etc. working like one should expect from real life. This makes building extremely interesting, as you have to consider many aspects when constructing your ships or stations. The planet update adds further elements to gameplay and motivates to build more and more stuff and progress through the universe. On the downside, particle and sound effects both are only mediocre, though still quite well done for an indie developer, then the game still has performance problems on weaker pcs, and, though there now are pirates and space spiders to get on your nerves, space is still a little empty and hasn't much to offer besides building. Also, it will take some time to work your way into everything and you might want to consult the Wiki.

Conclusion: If you are the creative type and like to build your own designs of ships and space stations, or maybe play along with some friends to construct some fighters and have a little pvp, SE will be worth it's money to you. If you are more into action-kind survival gameplay, it might be a little boring. If you are one of those people who already built a full-scale empire state building in Minecraft (or whatever crazy giant stuff you can think of), and really have fun with stuff like that, and always wanted to build the Enterprise or Death Star - this is exactly what you want. For those players (to whom i count myself), this is definetly a 10/10.

Space Engineers ist ein Sandbox-Aufbauspiel und ähnelt in vielen Dingen Minecraft und dessen "Verwandten", folgt jedoch einem etwas anderen Ansatz. So wie in den meisten Spielen dieses Subgenres verbringt man anfangs den größten Teil der Zeit damit, Ressourcen abzubauen, die ersten Konstruktionen zu errichten und mehr über die Möglichkeiten von Spiel und Spielwelt zu erfahren - wobei Spielwelt in diesem Fall für ein gigantisches Sonnensystem in realistischer Größenordnung steht, inklusive Asteroiden und Planeten, zumindest wenn dies bei der Maperstellung angegeben wird. SE bietet zudem einen creative-Modus zum freien Bauen ohne Survival-Elemente an. Im Gegensazu zu manch anderem Genrevertreter verwendet SE eine großartige Voxel-basierte 3D Rendering Engine, mit schönen sauberen Texturen und herausragenden Beleuchtungseffekten und specular mapping, wodurch sich die Grafik zwischen durchaus brauchbar bis hin zu gelegentlich absolut spektakulär bewegt. Das zentrale Alleinstellungsmerkmal des Spiels ist allerdings seine Physiksimulation, mit Gravitationsfeldern, korrekter Beschleunigung, Trägheitsdämpfung etc., die alle so funktionieren wie man es aus der echten Welt erwarten würde. Dies macht auch das Bauen interessant, da viele Aspekte bedacht werden müssen wenn man Schiffe oder Stationen errichtet. Das Planeten-Update bringt zusätzliche Gameplay-Elemente und motiviert dazu, immer mehr zu bauen und weiter in das Universum des Spiels vorzustoßen. Bei den Schwächen des Spiels lassen sich zum einen die eher mittelmäßigen Partikel- und Soundeffekte nennen, die allerdings für ein Indie-Studio immernoch recht solide sind, zudem hat das Spiel gerade auf schwächeren PCs immer noch starke Performance-Probleme, und schließlich wirkt der Weltraum trotz inzwischen eingefügter Piraten und Alienspinnen immer noch stellenweise arg leer und bietet wenig außer immer mehr zu bauen. Außerdem dauert es seine Zeit, sich in alle Mechaniken einzuarbeiten, und es ist vielleicht eine gute Idee, sich mit dem Wiki auseinanderzusetzen.

Fazit: Wenn Sie zu den kreativeren Menschen gehören, gerne Ihre eigenen Designs von Raumstationen und Schiffen basteln wollen, oder sich einfach mit ihren Freunden ein paar Jäger basteln und PvP spielen wollen, wird SE sein Geld für sie vermutlich wert sein. Suchen Sie eher nach einem Action-orientierten Survival-Spiel, dann dürfte es Ihnen in Space Engineers hingegen schnell langweilig werden. Sind sie allerdings einer dieser Menschen, die in Minecraft schon das Empire State Building (oder welche größenwahnsinnigen Ideen einem sonst so einfallen) nachgebaut haben und an so etwas viel Spaß haben, und schon immer mal die Enterprise oder den Todesstern nachbauen wollten, ist das hier genau Ihr Spiel. Für diese Sorte Menschen (zu der ich mich selbst zähle) gibt es für SE eine glatte 10/10.

Schon lange das beste Space-Survival-Game, falls man es so nennen mag, aber jetzt gibt es Planeten mit allem drum und dran (Monster,etc) dabei habe ich immer gedacht es würde auf das All begrenzt bleiben...Das ist also jetzt die beste Nachricht die es geben konnte. Space Engineers ist der Oberknaller !!! Und jetzt auch noch günstiger?; da kann kein Weltallfetischist "Nein" sagen, doch auch Shooter fans und Crash Fanatiker kommen hier nicht zu kurz. Ich für meinen Teil würde das Space Engineers sogar für 50 kaufen da es andere Titel in Sachen Inhalt um längen schlägt.
Also Leute kaufen! :)

When I picked up this game, we didn't even have functioning weapons - The only way to damage other ships was to ram into them at top speed like a maniac, which generally left you as mangled as your target.

Now we've got weapons, NPC ships, remote-controlled ships, radio communication, jump drives, solar power, oxygen, wheeled vehicles and three different kinds of thrusters to pick from. A few years ago the effective game world was a small cluster of asteroids floating in empty space, and now we have planets that are around 50-60 kilometers in radius.

It's been a long and fun ride, and it shows no signs of stopping.
