H2 gets consumed way too fast. A full h2 tank on a wheel based rover using a hydrogen engine is empty before you've gotten anywhere. With a tank that size, I should be able to drive around for days. Now, I'm perfectly fine with the fact that burning h2 produces less energy than is required to produce it. That makes total sense. What doesnt make sense is the fact that it's not really possible to get around with a ...more »
While pistons and rotors technically can be used for almost anything, producing some machines with them use more space than I'd like. 1: I'd like a ball joint: This could bend both left and right and up and down, effectively reducing the need for having 2 rotors to achieve this goal, thus something like a drill, weapon or tool could be aimed more effectively. Maybe this could have a limited angle not to make it too good ...more »
Sometime I'd like to build "arms" in space engineers like real life excavators have, however in space engineers these are flexible as if powered by springs.
I'd like the option to be able to make arms that better match the feel of real life hydraulics: while slow, they are quite strong, and highly dampened: ie they don't bounce around.
i would like to be able to upgrade ship grinder and welder possible the same way refineries are ugraded so these parts can perform as well as character tools
its especielly important for someone like me that likes playing whit all settings set to realistic
I is currently a bit clunky to remote control ships. (especially switching between different grids) You need to go through a few menus and you can't control your character while you're remote controlling another object. Thus my solution is this: add an extra option for the character hotbar so that you can have a "buttons" for ships even if you're not sitting in their pilot seat. Of course these buttons would only work ...more »
The Vulkan API could a good addition to S.E. and may show better performance versus the Direct X API. I am not 100% sure it will but it maybe worth a try.
Not much to say. You got yourself a cave, now you probably want to have air in your cave without having to build some walls into the rock, which is only possible in creative mode; or building a room inside your cave which kills the cave flair.
I won't lie, I like to make big ships. Big bases, big control towers and/or bridges. It kinda makes me sad that while I put a lot of effort in creating a nice flight chair with desk board full of LCD's and weapon turret control seats in their own little alcoves.... a random person can access most systems from the button panel outside the ship or steer the ship from the control seat that is his desk in his living quarters. ...more »
Space engineers modding community is on point with creative idea's. From a simple recoloring of a simple cubic block (wooden floor block) to whole new functions (gravel extractors) and even new game features (food and drink systems, heat management), have been uploaded to the steam workshop. Some might argue that (some) mods are vital to fully enjoy the game. My suggestion for the devs is to take a look at the popular ...more »
It's kinda weird that since the stone age, menkind has used sticks (sometimes combined with stone slabs and metal sheets) to dig into the earth, flatten area's and build mountains. Yet in this sci-fi world we seem to have totally forgotten how to do this. Please, devs. I am sick of having 90% of my base floating in mid air and\or on ugly tall pillars because I can't make a nice flat surface in survival mode. Give us ...more »
Just as an air vent that can function as a oxygen level sensor (do action when pressurized/depressurized,) make a option in the solar panel screen to bind actions to receives/not receives sunlight. or maybe even light levels (0% - 25% - 50% - 75 % - 100%)
This video covers everything: "Fairly" "simple" You enter one cryo chamber then your character is left behind and you select another character to control. either spawning a new one by the means of a medical bay or by choosing another body that is already inside a cryo chamber. YOU CANT SPAWN IN A NEW SUIT. for balancing purposes. If you dont have a medical bay then you don't ...more »
