Update 01.154 DEV - Configurable Block Limits & Performance Warnings

Hello Engineers! Today's update brings more important bug fixes and improvements - configurable block limits & performance warnings were added to the game, primarily to help server admins maintain their servers more easily. These limits can be set up in the server configurator for dedicated servers, or in world settings for singleplayer and multiplayer. Another addition is improved NPC pathfinding for wolves and sabiroids.
We’ve also got another Dev diary - this time we are revealing the upcoming visual scripting tool. One of our level designers, Jochem, will try to show you how designers are utilizing this new tool. We have no doubts that our community will be able to create some amazing scenarios when the visual scripting releases. In the meantime, our designers will continue to help improve the tool by requesting new features and reporting issues.

About This Game

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

  • Enemy NPCs
    - sabiroids (spiders): can be found on alien planets and on Titan moons. They can destroy metal blocks and attack players. Their favorite hunting strategy is hiding in the ground and un-burrow to surprise their prey. When players kill a spider, new spiders won’t appear in the area for some time. They also store some components inside their bodies from objects and blocks that they consumed.
    - pirate bases: can be found either in space or occupying planetary surface. They have bounty hidden inside their containers that players can loot if they get over the drone attacks.
    - enemy drones: they spawn automatically from pirate bases and attack the players when they venture into pirate territory
  • Ships (small and large ships – build them, pilot them and crush them
  • Space stations
  • First-person & Third-person
  • Planetary bases, outposts, cities!

The game started off good... owned it a few years. Recently many people cannot play it due to the graphic card bug no being supported even though they meet the requirements to play the game. The devs seem to not care anymore as it's becoming a aging title. I do not recommend buying this game if you have a Nvidia graphics card.

It's Dead Jim

While some will disagree the game is simply dying, if not dead already. Have a look for yourself in the forums, many questions are asked, very few responses.

THE PROBLEMS

This game as suffered from a bad stroke of development since it went multiplayer even ignoring all the optimization issues that still exist with the game. For most, playing singleplayer just gets boring after a while as you basically just build a ship in creative. Building a ship in survival was just pointless because there was utterly nothing to do.

So, many players took to multiplayer, which by concept had the potential to be a megaton of fun. Imagine it for a moment, you are building your ship and a player comes by to try and steal it, you turn around and open fire with your assault rifle, and your ship comes to life and helps to defend itself. VICTORY! Now, imagine a large ship with 4 - 8 people on that ship helping to man everything from guns, to inventory, to even drones or small ships in a mining operation. The sheer coordination required by that would be intresting in of itself to make this game GOTY worthy.

Alas, that is not at all what it delivered. If your ship moves, any passengers have about a 424242% chance to die for no reason other than neglegent programming. In fact, almost 42424% of your deaths were from bugs. And if that isn't bad enough, 4242424242% of the time your ship was destroyed from bugs. Now, I'm actually refrencing a Dedicated Server with a 32 core Xeon, 1TB system that my guild "tried" playing on. Hardware was not the issue as it never was, it is the software -- that neglegent programming.

/geek stuff

The game currently uses the steam netlayer which is capable of 33 updates per second. That means that in one second, the server and client can send 66 updates back and forth to/from each other. When a ship moves at 5 meters per second, the netlayer is already saturated with physics calculations and simply can't take any more because there is just so much "junk" being sent through the netlayer that it was never intended to handle. There are other netlayers out there, even the moderators said they would move to Rakknet, in which we later found was a lie. The developers never intended to move the game to rakknet which has a update capability of over 100 updates per second vastly expanding the maximum speed in which a ship can fly before the netlayer becomes saturated and causes "bouncing" of the ship.

/end geek stuff

THE CULPRITS

I tried to help. I am a programmer myself and being the game was open source to those who paid for it, I examined the source code and how the game interfaced with the steam netlayer -- honesly it was simply as I stated, there was simply too much stuff being sent over the netlayer, some of which shouldn't even be there and some a conversion to lockstepping could help alieviate.

So, I created a client and server side wrapper that provided an alternate method of transfering "some" of the data. It was simply a bandaid as it did have its bugs but the concept was solid, especailly in demondstrating what the problem was while there was a heated debate in the forums about what that problem really was.

I asked a complete stranger in the forums to join my server and help me test something, basically after I had finished my prototype, they joined my server with the changes installed and they were absolutely blown away. The server had no bouncing or rubber banding. When you looked straight down at your ship's floor while it was traveling 120m/s, you could only see the ship wabble 1-2 pixels on your crosshair, which was an absolute night and day diffrence between not having my fixes which the wobble could be upwards of 50 meters, which would cause instant death.

I took video of this just for posterity and posted it in the forums (Sorry Twitch has already deleted the video). The fanbois were P I S S E D! But why, I wondered. It took me a while but I figured it out, it took one of the fanbois only one comment to completely explain to me why they were all so upset -- I proved their precious KSH wrong, and showed them up by fixing the game for them! Did you know I was called a fraud? The guy I had just met was called a fraud, the video was called a fake, and you don't even want me to get into all the names I was called in that thread while the moderators utterly ignored every word. No seriously, every word until of course, the guy I met spoke out and defended himself in much kinder tones in which he recieved a ban.

I know one of the moderators and I'm not pointing fingers, I don't know which was responsible or if it was someone from Keen that did it. But there was a new precedent set that day in the forums, that much was quite obvious: Fanbois, ala the majority, rules.

DIGRESSION

This problem of fandom was first revaled to me after the "Cyberhound" patch. Immediately after, before anyone had access to it there were comments from the fancamp praising Keen for a job well done, calling the update awewsome, perfect, exceptional, epic, and one even called it couragous! It was sheer spam.

After I got the patch, I logged into the game to find that these cyberhounds randomly spawn inside your ship and immediately and without warning blow it up from the inside out. Try and digest what I just said if you haven't purchased or played this game yet. Immediately and very angryly I go back to the forums to the patch notes and to my surprise I see it going completely nuts with people complaining about the "Jihad Dogs". The moderator I am in contact with even said it was the hardest he's had to work so far to keep the comments within reason and in line with the rules.

It was so bad, there was an emergency patch that was pushed to toggle these dogs off. This one incident illuminates so much about the woes of this game, community, and developers that it may take a few reads to actually grasp the gravity of it, but being limited in text, I will make an attempt here.

Firstly it was made clear that Keen could urinate in the fancamp's mouth and the fancamp would thank them for the rain while at the same time attacking anyone who questioned the pungent smell, warm tempeture, and golden color. A critic's feedback never reaches Keen, and the developers have become so disconnected with the community it is almost laughable and pathetic to see them attempt to re-connect (that is a whole other story there).

The last attempt was the most miserable. A Q&A where Keen scripted the entire thing and selected on their most rabid fans to participate. No critics were allowed a signle question, and there were no questions that caught Keen offguard. It was more of a political forum than a Q&A.

But what it boils right down to is with the critics now gone, the fanbois have lost intrest in the game, no one plays, no one talks on the forums, and there is no more healthy debate and discourse with the developers, the game: It is dead. May it rest in peace while fandom burns in hell.

What you see now is the skeletal remains of an awesome idea where like a cancer, fanbois invaded the inner circles of the developers and tricked them into thinking that everything was ok while slowly killing them. By the time the developers realized there was an issue, which was a few months back when Merik came back to the game, it was simply too late, the damage was done. Fanbois seem rather hellbent to having this game die a slow and painful death; they seem to somehow think or believe "they are the game" by identifying as the game and therefor feel it necessary to attack all criticism.

There are many ways for a game to "go", but never, until this game, would I have guessed for a second that raving group of fanbois could actually achieve the death of a game. This game is a casestudy for the books and a prime example of who not to listen to when developing a EA game.

I *really* want to give this game a reccomendation, but I'd need to be able to play it to do that!
This game is great, but as more features were added, it became more hardware intensive, buggier, and prone to crashes. What this game needs is for the developers to take the rest of the year off from adding features, and focus solely on optimization and bug fixes. Once they do that, I fully reccomend this game!

Seriously, it's an amazing game, full of depth and complexity. It feels like you really are engineering items in space, but simplified enough for it to be fun instead of stressful. Although I also think it's best to get this with a friend, as singleplayer can start growing monotonous after a while. Or at least, it did for me.

Space Engineers is an ambitious game. However, it has two huge problems. To counter that, it has some of the best ship building and flying for anything that you build.
A) It's a sandbox
B) It's a buggy mess.

Now, before the introduction of planets, the sandbox aspect was more or less not a big problem - all resources were accessible if you could just find the right asteroid. Survival was a thing you could do.

Come planets though, mining planetside and progressing to get into space became nonexistant. Multiple "features" are ignored, despite being buggy across months of patches. Currently the game is stuck in bug patching hell, and every bug "fix" seems to introduce three more that were worse than the last.

It's great if you just want to play around in sandbox and make things, but forget about enabling meteor storms. If you're on a planet, they cause damage to all the voxels, slowing things down, and they have no parameters that you can set to make them seem challenging but not overwhelming.

They mostly need to work on world generation and progressing from planets to space, neither of which seem to be on their roadmap. To make it all worse they released Medieval Engineers before it even really hit an Alpha state!

I never write reviews for anything, however I'm gonna have to for SE.

Like seriuosly, You owe it to yourself to just buy it. Its Minecraft, Space, and No Mans Sky made better. It can get tedious to begin with, boring per se, but if you prevail and try each time you build a ship, it can become one hell of an amazing game.

The devs give you an update every week, usually on a Thursday. Yes it may not be always new content, but at least they are active, and are still trying hard to make the game better.

You can build anything you can imagine, within game limits, and the workshop for the game is THE BEST. The amount of mods, and community created ships is literally insane, the multiplayer although buggy is hilarious, and is fun when you are OP and rek your friends.

Honestly I cannot recommend this game enough, and don't get why people have so much stick to the bugs. They will be fixed, and whilst you wait, it is stupidly fun to play.

I rate this game very stronk.

Also better than No Mans Sky.

What is going on here, we are getting always some graphical,sound updates or some bugfixes. Nobody mentions the huge multiplayer problems, i came to the conclusion that KEEN is not willing to fix that.
A multiplayer experience is for this game essential and i have no hope.
So my conclusion and my suggestion to new players: don't buy this till is finished or the multiplayer problems solved.
I will come back after a main change of the status and redo my Review

**Update** I love the game and always enjoy it. and am more than happy to recomend this game, its just not ready for everyone because it cant be enjoyed fully yet.

The game needs to be optimized for not only middle class players, but for the slightly lower. I'm in the mid range to almost high end pc gaming, and still have a hard time playing the game due to lag, unoptimized performance bugs, and many other things. Every time i try and play, the game eventually crashed.
I love the concept of the game, but i simply cant play more until they optimize the game for at least mid range pcs. But when they do, i think the game could have more potential then before.

The game is very fun. But at this stage it`s unplayable because of the serius bugs and multyplayer issues. And I dont see too much progress fixing this issues in the last YEAR... Wheel and piston still explodes for example with no reson...

Don't be fooled by my play time, most of it is from a while ago. Since the introduction of planets the game has gone downhill. It is poorly optmised, and seems to be getting worse. The game itself is fine if you have a beefy computer, but multiplayer makes even the best computers cry; but not if you don't play with planets enabled.

Returned after six months, and they haven't really added anything new to the game, other than gamebreaking bugs in multiplayer. Nicely done
