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.

Report RSS Space Engineers - Update 1.187 - Major Overhaul of Multiplayer

Hello, Engineers! After six months, we are releasing the next major update, which is focusing on the complete overhaul of multiplayer in Space Engineers, and a number of new features and optimizations.

Posted by on

This was a massive overhaul and that’s why it wasn’t possible to make this update in weekly increment - so thanks a lot for your patience!
We had to redo major parts of the engine and there was a lot of experimentation - for example changing the prediction protocol on client-server and observing if it’s better for user experience or worse, and many more. Space Engineers has many systems and special care had to be taken for each of them: player character, jetpack, ship, wheeled vehicles, voxels and planets, fast moving objects, deformable entities, antennas, player standing on a moving grid, colliding grids, rotors, pistons, wheels, and many many more.
But wait - that's not all! With this massive multiplayer update we are releasing optimizations and performance improvements, Safe Zones, Female Engineer and much more!
