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.

Posted by MinerWars on Aug 8th, 2014

Players can download mods (custom blocks, skyboxes, custom skins) right from Steam Workshop. Mods are per-world; that means that each world can have different mods active. And that’s not all –every client automatically downloads every workshop mod used by server while connecting. As a bonus; we have also added character animations playable from toolbar, small control panel access block, gyroscope override and more catwalk blocks – enjoy!

Warning: in case you have overwritten core game files on your own in the past, please try to delete all local content + verify your game cache files

All workshop content can also be added directly to our profile page.

Gyro override! I was wondering when this was going to be added.. apparently sooner than I had expected!

I love how the modding/workshop support keeps getting improvements. Modding can drastically increase the game's 'lifetime' so decent modding support is both awesome for the players and has the potential of increasing sales :) Thanks, developers!
