Space Engineers’ lead dev details the planetary construction process

    
10

Have you tried Space Engineers since it added its ginormous planetary update? If not, you might want to watch the video dev blog that Keen Software boss Marek Rosa posted last week. “Planets are the biggest feature we’ve ever implemented in Space Engineers,” he says. “It’s bigger than survival, bigger than multiplayer, and it’s really a game-changing feature.”

Rosa says that Keen initially didn’t plan to include terrestrial gameplay in its space sandbox, but after receiving lots of community feedback requesting the feature, Keen changed its mind. The process was challenging because planets in Space Engineers are “real,” meaning that they aren’t simply graphical constructs but instead volumetric voxel objects that players can see from a distance and then visit and change.

Would it be too much to ask for, for you guys to please put some link somewhere to the articles’ subject?
If you mention something interesting like, say, Space Engineers, it might be nice to be able to click on something and go to their webpage instead of having to find it ourselves.

Has this really never occurred to anyone?

Lateris Hmm I believe MOP had a survey about this a couple weeks ago. I am enjoying myself on Massively’s Ark server and it looks like a server for this game would be awesome.:)

Oh I see it’s early access as well, it would indeed be stupid if they tried reselling the game.

Is there a Massively server?

Cotic_OP Damonvile Well this game wasn’t finished so charging for an expansion to an unfinished game would be kind of ridiculous.

Is it unfair to charge for expansions?

Interesting that they didnt try and resell the game to everyone once they added planets.

I love the fact that we are seeing this type of system implemented in more PC games.
