Space Engineers, Engineering in space, Minecraft in space, whatever you wish to call it, is personally an awesome game. It updates regularly every week and has heaps of new content improving the game each time. Also the modding API is already out which is great (and leaps ahead of minecraft hahahaha). Although still very much alpha with plenty of bugs and weirdness to boot! But that’s just half the fun!
I see quite a few people on QT enjoy it so I thought I might start a discussion thread on it. Warning though this may become image heavy.
So feel free to post stories, creations, modding endeavours, images the like about what you have done in space!
Most of my time has been spent with other QT members building things like a spinning space station, or crashing warp drive ships into other ships and sending them hurtling into space. I have probably crashed the server 4+ times, I don’t try to keep track. I don’t have any images of my creation from that server but I do have one image on my steam profile of EXPLOSIONS!
So, what have you guy made/exploded?

Soo much fun in Spaaaaaace !
Will grab some imgs in a few.
I plan on making a world that is just to preserve some of the cool ships I have built, large and small.
My scariest moments have been when building an object in space and seeing it start to drift off. You know that most often trying to catch it only makes things worse. But on occasion if you somehow manage to catch that speeding mass of metal and bring it to a stop, the heavens open up and shower kittens upon you. What a great feeling.

Words of Wisdom:
Remember to anchor your creation to something that cannot move, then do not accidentally grind off that connection point.
When approaching your main base or mother ship at full speed – be sure your inertial dampeners are turned on.

Space Engineers is pretty cool. I took a break from it a few weeks ago, but they have been continuing to update it every Thursday ever since it was released on Steam. I will have to check it out again sometime and update / upgrade my ship designs to accommodate all the fancy new stuff.

The developer tries for the most realism as possible from the sounds of their design choices. It is a physics heavy game and you need engines on your ship facing in all directions to move in every direction, each component has a set mass and causes the centre of gravity of ships to move, ramming things causes armour to dent and break (just chekc their trailers for plenty of examples of this), etc etc. Seriously on the engines though, and gyroscopes, nothing is more painful than a spinning ship floating out into space because you forgot to put engines in a specific direction.
Its pretty neat some of the things there. Also there are a few non-realistic things like gravity gens, that do not effect ships unless you put on an artificial mass block (but do effect most items and astronauts with jetpacks off) and and your station and asteroids are immobile.Max @ August 6, 2019 at 4:02 pm#14298 |
