Voting for the Space Engineers Video Competition has Begun! Mon, 20 May 2019 16:59 CEST

Hello, Engineers!

We’re excited to kick off the first day of voting for the Space Engineers Video Competition!


-Check out the first batch of entries, which have been uploaded to our YouTube channel:
-We will continue to upload batches of entries between Monday, May 20 - Friday, May 31, 2019.
-Engineers will have 24 hours to vote on each batch of video entries.
-The entries are being uploaded in alphabetical order based on their titles.
-You will be notified about each new batch of videos being uploaded to our YouTube channel each day via our social media (Facebook, Twitter, Discord, etc.).
-Voting for each batch of entries will last 24 hours; the number of thumbs up/likes that each video receives will be time stamped in the description of each video once the voting period ends.
-We will continue this process and until May 31.
*Please note: thumbs up/likes (votes) that entries receive after their respective voting periods end are appreciated, but they WILL NOT be counted as official votes. We have decided to structure the voting in this way so each video has an equal opportunity to earn votes.


All contestants have been made aware that utilizing copyrighted music in their entries is prohibited unless they have permission to use the aforementioned copyrighted music, which has been clearly stated here:

With that in mind, we weren’t able to include some entries in the competition because they utilized copyrighted music. We’ve also done our best to make sure each entry doesn’t include copyrighted music, but if an entry does include copyrighted material and it gets removed from our YouTube channel due to a copyright claim, we are unable to prevent this.

Since we’re uploading quite a few entries to the Space Engineers YouTube channel, don’t be surprised if you receive a few more YouTube notifications than your otherwise normally would if you’re subscribed to our channel.

Keep in mind that we didn’t always receive all of the information regarding what mods were utilized in each video entry. Likewise, we didn’t always know every player who participated in each submission. Make sure you check out the credits for each video entry if they have them.

Last, but certainly not least, we would like to say a BIG THANK YOU to everyone that has participated in this year’s Space Engineers Video Competition! We received a ton of entertaining, unique and simply awe-inspiring entries.

As a token of our appreciation and in the spirit of teamwork-one of the defining traits of Space Engineers-we will be sending all contestants a complimentary skin set after the winners of the competition are announced on Saturday, June 1, 2019. This includes those contestants whose entries weren’t selected to be uploaded to our YouTube channel based on the rules of the competition.

Thanks for reading and enjoy the competition!:steamhappy:

Upcoming Decorative Pack Functionality Update Tue, 16 Apr 2019 19:14 CEST

Hello, Engineers!

After carefully evaluating feedback provided by the community, we have decided to make a major change to the functionality of the Decorative Pack. Soon, all players will be able to interact with these blocks regardless of whether they own the Decorative Pack or not. In the case that a player doesn't own the Decorative Pack, they will just not be able to build with these blocks. This change will be made in an update releasing in the coming weeks.

Cheers! :steamhappy:]]>

Update 1.190 - Customizable LCD Screens, Replay Tool, and Decorative Pack Mon, 08 Apr 2019 19:19 CEST

Hello, Engineers!
It’s time for another exciting update for Space Engineers. The most obvious change is the fact that with this release we are bringing both free and premium content to the game. This gives you the opportunity to enjoy new things, but also the chance to support the further development of Space Engineers, if you are willing to do so.

All players will get new functional cockpit LCDs with customizable screens, replay tool, which can be used for setting up various animated scenes, brand new random Encounters, Steam trading cards, badges and backgrounds, and all bug fixes, optimizations, and smaller improvements for free.

Players who already own the Deluxe Edition will also get three new music tracks based on the music from our trailers.

For players who wish to support further development of Space Engineers, we have created a bulk of Decorative Blocks, which you can use for various decorations on your spaceships, vehicles and space stations. The price is $3.99 USD, or your regional Steam equivalent. You can purchase the Decorative Pack here:
If you decide not to purchase the Decorative Pack, but you want to play with friends or other players who did buy the Decorative Pack, you will still be able to join a multiplayer game or server with them and enjoy the game. In this case, you will be able to view these new blocks, but you won’t be able to build or interact with them.
Marek's blog post:
Full list of features and improvements:


Q: Are all future updates going to be paid?
A: Actually, even this update isn’t paid. The major part of this update (LCD screens, Replay Tool, new music tracks, smaller improvements) is free for everyone. Only the smaller and not mandatory part is paid - Decorative Pack.

Q: Aren’t you going to split the community - people who don’t own the Decorative Pack won’t be able to play with people who own it?
A: The way we designed this is that even people who don’t purchase the Decorative Pack can play on servers with people who own the Decorative Pack. Players who don’t own the Decorative Pack won’t be able to build with these new blocks, nor interact with them, but they will be able to view them in-game.

Q: Where is all this money going?
A: To support future development of Space Engineers and other leading-edge projects we plan to work on at Keen Software House. Players kept asking us for something they could buy to support the development of Space Engineers, and the Decorative Pack is a great option for them.

Q: When did you start working on Decorative Pack?
A: Right after Space Engineers left early access and all hot issues were resolved. Most of the work was done by the Art team, the rest of the developers is working on other long-term updates.

Q: Why haven’t you increased the price of Space Engineers and include the Decorative Pack in it, or why it’s not part of the Deluxe Edition?
A: We want more people to play Space Engineers, which means we must lower the barrier of entry. When the Space Engineers community grows, everyone benefits from this - more content on Workshop, more mods, more new ideas, more people to play with. This means that all non-mandatory features should be optional, so only those who really want them can pay for them. That’s why we decreased the price of Space Engineers, and made the Decorative Pack an optional purchase.

Q: We asked you for volumetric water, compound blocks, new goals, more optimizations, etc, and instead you are giving us a toilet block?
A: Hehe, if you put it this way, it sounds kind of funny. :) But the reality is that decorative blocks are low-hanging fruit, not a bottleneck towards those other mentioned future features. Additionally, the decorative pack can bring added profit and make the mentioned things happen.]]>

Update 1.189 - Major Overhaul of Survival, Ladders, Leaving Early Access Thu, 28 Feb 2019 18:19 CET

Hello, Engineers!
February 28, 2019 is the day for all Space Engineers. Today, we are moving Space Engineers out of Early Access. Getting Space Engineers out of Early Access has been planned for a long time. We have worked on it basically since 2016/2017, when the game entered beta. It was our goal to release the game in the state we consider to fulfill our original vision, including all planned features and core game components. Moreover, the game includes a lot of things that were not planned at the beginning of development (solar panels, planets, rotors, pistons, wheels, and many more features).

Space Engineers was one of the first Early Access games on Steam and one of the few titles to be successfully released after several years of passionate development. We keep our promises!
Space Engineers has been in Early Access for 5+ years, and during this period we developed the game from a proof-of-concept to a feature complete space engineering sandbox. We sold more than 3 million copies and we have more than 200,000 monthly active players.
Because Space Engineers development was open, you were able to see what’s happening under the hood. Contrary to other products, where you see the final product, but don’t see how the project has been developed and changed over time, and what challenges the development team had to overcome.

With this update, we are also setting a new price for Space Engineers to $19.99. According to our analysis and tests, this price better suits the majority of Space Engineers fans. This change also brings all regional prices on Steam to match countries specifications and regional differences.
