General gameplay - Feature suggestions
General issues with the game. Let us know what is causing the most troubles for you -
Space Engineers is a fun sandbox game, but right now that's all it is at this point. A Sandbox Game. Space Engineers needs to be more of a challenge and Planets should also feel more alive. We need Dy...
Auto Orbit planet
Allow for ships to automatically orbit at a distance within or outside of natural gravity by selecting the closest planet.
Players should be able to set a distance, if the ship is capable of orbiting...
Subgrid (Rotor, Piston, Connector) Thruster Control
Thrusters on a subgrid (attached to main grid via rotors, pistons, or connectors) should respond to regular flight controls and inertial dampening controls of the main grid. There is a mod that does...
Conveyor block type expansion
3 way tubes, longer tubes like 5.
More air-tight options then just the 6 way block so not forced to use a 6 way just to make a joint section air-tight. The current Conveyor system is heavy on thr...
Since the begining of space engineers we have 3 types of building: station, small ship and large ship. What I suggest is a 4th type of building: infrastructure.
It would be a build with only one grid...
Give Ore Detector information to scripters
As far as I'm aware Ore Detectors and what they detect still can't be used by scripters. I'd extend this idea to as many forms of information that could be cool to see used by scripts as we can get.
Search Bar for Assemblers:
Adding a search bar for production in assemblers would remove a lot of hassle for having to search for the block and essentially making that feature more trouble than it's worth; which is a shame.
Maintain altitude without horizontal dampening
It is common to want to maintain altitude but not reduce horizontal speed when in a gravity field.
Currently, this can only be achieved using thrust override or by turning off some thrusters with dam...
Simplify in-game programming language
For the love of god, please simplify the scripting language! Not all of us are graduates of MIT or have an IQ of 4 Billion! I know a little bit about programming and it seems EXTREMELY redundant and...
