Space Engineers is a sandbox game about engineering, construction and maintenance of space works. Players build space ships and space stations of various sizes and utilization (civil and military), pilot ships and perform asteroid mining. Space Engineers utilizes a realistic volumetric-based physics engine: all objects can be assembled, disassembled, damaged and destroyed. The game comes with two game modes: creative and survival. Space Engineers is still in development and is available on Early Access. Everything in the game is subject to change.

Report article RSS Feed Update 01.033 - Merge block, conversion of station to ship, news box in main men

Merge block has been added in Space Engineers; it allows you to permanently merge ships and stations of the same block size and in proper alignment. When a ship is merged with a station, ship becomes the station. Stations can be now converted to ships, but the blocks which are partially inside asteroids will get damaged or destroyed.

We also added a "news box" on the main menu screen, where you can get notified of anything that is new in the game and we have redesigned and upgraded our multi-player code; this results in a more stable multi-player with less lag.

maybe at some point they'll add in a type of "pirate" or "raider" as an option like they do with generated ships, only these ones seek you out.

Maybe something along the lines of a tiny "drone" something like a small square or circle with a machine gun or two
