What the developers have to say:

Why Early Access?

“The time has finally come for more mechanics to join the game! After a few years in development, we finally have a good portion of the game foundation in place. The game now offers a lot of creative fun in its current state.
We’re now at a point where we need your feedback so that we can evolve the game in the best possible direction – together.

Scrap Mechanic is unique creative building game that allows you to build amazing machines and creations, and we want to see how far the players can push the game; this’ll enable us to take notes and make improvements.

We aim to keep a good experience trough the Early Access period as we add new building pieces, features and an awesome survival mode.

Alpha access includes the full game on release as well as all coming updates!”

Approximately how long will this game be in Early Access?

“Since we take the feedback we get from the community incredibly seriously, our workflow has to be flexible and intuitive which makes it more difficult to give a exact final release date. We need to make sure we have enough time to improve the game with the feedback we collect and make sure that the survival mode will be as awesome as our mechanics would come to expect.”

How is the full version planned to differ from the Early Access version?

“Now that we have the Creative Mode in place, we’re going to work on the ambitious Survival Mode. Mechanics can look forward to a huge new open world to explore with buildings that can be scavenged and taken apart, a day and night cycle, deadly enemies to fight, weapons and explosives that can be used in many creative ways, further character customization, new awesome building parts and tools and an improved multiplayer function. Last but not least, there’ll of course be improvements based on all the feedback we collect. There are more things in the pipeline for Survival Mode, but we’d like to keep some stuff as a surprise.”

What is the current state of the Early Access version?

“A big part of the game’s core features are already in place. The current version has a robust Creative Mode with over 100 unique pieces to build with. A bunch of powerful tools and an easy-to-use handbook will help you get started with building, so we think you’ll be getting everything a player needs to create the most fantastic machines and creations together with their friends.

We ask you to bear in mind that Scrap Mechanic is still in the process of being made and things will change between now and the final release, and that even though the game is very playable in its current state, bugs and occasional crashes can happen as we continue developing the game.”

Will the game be priced differently during and after Early Access?

“Scrap Mechanic will have a lower price during Early Access compared to the final full release. However Alpha Access includes the full game upon release in addition to all coming updates!”

How are you planning on involving the Community in your development process?

“We frequently communicate through Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and forums. We post videos and devblogs to keep the players up to date on our latest progress. We take in as much feedback as we possibly can from our awesome players, but the sheer amount of comments and posts mean that it’s not always possible for us to respond individually all the time. We focus on everything we receive that’s constructive and helpful, and we keep adding to and improving the game based on the feedback we collect.

The Community is hugely important to us: after all, we’re making this game for you!”

Piston Update 0.2.7 is here!




Hi Mechanics!

The Piston is finally here!
We finally managed to free up some time from survival to finish up the Piston.
We would like to give a big thanks to everyone who helped us do some testing. The creations we already seen made with the piston have been really impressive!

What makes the Scrap Mechanic Piston so special, is that not only can it be activated with a trigger. But it can also be connected to a controller to extend and contract in a sequence! This opens up a ton of new creative possibilities!

Check out our new Piston trailer!
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qoiD-EG-6Fk

Two things to keep in mind before using the piston!
  • Right now, the piston will not extend if there is no object on the piston.
    So please remember that when building. This will also get fixed.

  • The piston does not have any collision at the moment.
    Only what sits on the piston will have collision.
    This is something we will change later. But it’s a complicated task and needs more work.
    So please keep in mind that if you take advantage of this in your creations, then they might stop working when we finally add the collision later on.

Hope you will have fun playing with the piston!

Time for us to go back and work on survival mode.
We will share more survival goodness in the next devblog!

UPDATED:
(July 4)
  • Fixed a issue with dynamic lighting that was affected by the latest NVIDIA driver update.
  • Optimized the lift visualization to make it faster when pointing with the lift on creations.
  • Fixed a bug with merging static creations. Causing parts to be in the wrong place.
  • Changed back to the orgininal more stronger suspension (Jul 6)

(June 29)
We had a bug in this update previously that is now fixed.
It might have stopped some old worlds from opening for a small number of players
who started the game just when the update came up. If you are experiencing this issue,
you can recover it by following these steps.
Open a directory browser or press Windows Button + R and type
%appdata%\Axolot Games\Scrap Mechanic\User
then go to User_{steamid}/Save/Backup/ and copy the savefile with todays date back to the User_{steamid}/Save/ directory.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

Piston Update 0.2.7 Test!


(Updated 28 June)

  • Blueprint import now have correct piston positions.
  • Fixed an issue in blueprint exports where bearings, suspensions and pistons were not correctly attached.
  • Changed the color of the piston connection points.
(Updated 28 June)
  • Fixed an issue that made the pistons not extract and contract all the way when connected to a controller.
  • Added so modders can tweak the piston power.
  • Fixed an issue where things sounded like they where in the wrong position.
Hi Mechanics!

Today we have a very special test for you! One we know many of you have been eagerly awaiting. We finally got an early version of the amazing Piston ready!
Since it’s not fully tested yet, we would love if you could help us take it for a test run and make sure it can support your creations.

What makes the Scrap Mechanic Piston so special, is that not only can it be activated with a trigger. But it can also be connected to a controller to extend and contract in a sequence! This opens up a ton of new creative possibilities! We honestly can’t wait to see what you will build with the Piston.

Four things to keep in mind before jumping on the test branch!
  • The piston does not have any collision at the moment.
    Only what sits on the piston will have collision.
    This is something we will change later. But it’s a complicated task and needs more work.
    So please keep in mind that if you take advantage of the no collision in your creations, then they might stop working when we finally add the collision later on.

  • The piston is not completely done and will not extend if there is no object on the piston
    in this version.

  • We are currently not sure about the max speed of the piston.
    Right now it’s fast enough to go trough a one block wall on full speed.
    It’s very hard to solve this any other way then slowing down the max speed for the final version. But it’s also limits the player if it’s to slow. So please keep in mind that the piston max speed can change. But please let us know what you think!

  • When you enter a world in this test, you will no longer be able to open the world outside of the test branch. So please don't test the piston in your favorite worlds.

Here is how you access the test branch!


Hope you will have fun playing with the piston!

About This Game

PLEASE NOTE: We’re still at work on Scrap Mechanic! Get started right away in Creative Mode, and get ready for Survival Mode coming in a later update.

Welcome to the machine-filled creative paradise of Scrap Mechanic, a multiplayer
sandbox game with imagination and ingenuity at its core.



Scrap Mechanic is an all-new creative multiplayer sandbox game which drops you right into a world where you quite literally engineer your own adventures! Choose from the 100+ building parts you have at your disposal and create anything from crazy transforming vehicles to a house that moves. You’re even able to team up with your friends to create amazing things together: in Scrap Mechanic, you’re the master creator of anything you can imagine!

Here’s the deal: you’re a robot maintenance mechanic en route to your posting on a fully-automated agriculture planet. Your job is to take care of the worker robots as they work the land, sending the food they produce to the metropolitan planets. Thing is, close to touchdown your spacecraft loses control and crashes, but since you’ve got luck on your side (erm…), you survive! You’re stranded though, and at first glance you find that not everything’s quite as it should be. The Farmbots working the fields have gone crazy, and now there’s only one way to stay alive: using your quick thinking, your creativity and your wily knack of turning your surroundings to your advantage.

Let’s pop the hood and see what’s on offer right now:

  • Creative Mode!
    An unlimited amount of parts are yours to play with! Build free on your choice of terrain without limitations or the threat of death.

  • Gender!
    Choose between playing as a male or female mechanic.

  • Parts ‘n’ Blocks!
    Scrap Mechanic comes loaded with over 100 parts. Some with unique shapes and sizes, but all giving you the power to basically create anything you want.

  • Interactive Parts!
    The interactive parts that let you put your creations in motion represent the very best and most exciting parts of Scrap Mechanic! With a wide range of parts and an array of functions from gas and electric engines to thrusters, sensors and buttons, you’ll never be bored with the tools at your disposal!

  • Handbook!
    Your Mechanics’ Handbook is your trusty educational friend, with you from the start and dying to be read! Flip trough its pages at your leisure to learn the basics of building in a easy way.

  • Connect Tool!
    The tool that brings everything together and makes it all happen. A must for any true mechanic!

  • Lift!
    Lightens the load when building creations with physics in mind. Let it lift you – and your creations – higher!

  • Sledgehammer!
    Whack loose parts and watch them fly. Smacking physics around with the hammer is great fun.
