1. … it IS NOT a fast paced action game, it is a rather tedious simulator (survival mode, creative mode + blueprints might be different story, but not many servers use creative mode)
  2. … never met a single other player online X-D (this big is this world)
  3. … if something “basic refinery” “basic assembler” AIN’T WORKING IT COULD BE A BUG!
    • this game exists for 3 years, but because of it’s complexity (!?) imho it is STILL full of bugs X-D
    • so if something ain’t working… it is probably best, to simply start-over….

the game is quiet pretty…

hardware requirements?

and the GTX 1050 is reaching it’s limits (but could also be the CPU) https://www.ebay.de/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_nkw=GTX+1050&_sacat=0&rt=nc&LH_BIN=1

why is basic refinery not working

… even if it does not says so, maybe it needs more power, try placing wind turbine higher, or build more wind turbines or solar panels

... if something "basic refinery" "basic assembler" AIN'T WORKING IT COULD BE A BUG! this game exists for 3 years, but because of it's complexity (!?) imho it is STILL full of bugs X-D so if something ain't working... it is probably best, to simply start-over....

… if that still does not fix it (as the player can see, put the windmill 10x metal boxes high) something as basic as a “basic refinery” or “basic assembler” AIN’T WORKING IT COULD BE A BUG! this game exists for 3 years, but because of it’s complexity (!?) imho it is STILL full of bugs X-D so if something ain’t working… it is probably best, to simply start-over….

about the game:

Space Engineers “Survival Mode” is the real hardcore space nerd “shit”.

the story goes like this: the player is a lonesome engineer somewhere in the universe… with a very very small hand drill… the engineer ought to harvest enough resources basically “manually by hand” to actually have enough resources to actually build “something” X-D (in the best case – a SpaceShip)

… as this already hints on… it is a lot of work and takes a long long long very long time X-D

(there are no default mining robots or ships…  unless the player builds one)

there is also a “CreativeMode” where resources are endless.

  • first of (always say something positive):
    • (+) the game uses voxel technology (as Minecraft does)
      • so the landscape can be changed by the player COMPLETELY
    • (+) it has multiplayer, so it is possible to build stuff with friends
    • (+) the possibilities on “what to build” are just as with lego ENDLESS!
    • (+) realistic physics simulation
    • (+) realistic terrain & sun simulation AMAZING 🙂
    • it actually looks pretty pretty - this simulation of Mars

      it actually looks pretty pretty – this simulation of Mars

  • the negative:
    • (-) it is not a fast paced action game… (maybe Creative Mode + BluePrints + MultiPlayer could do that) but actually a simulation
    • (-) this game is already 3 years “old” and so complex, that a lot is simply not “obvious” to the player and thus can result in frustration
    • (-) absolutely beginner problem: “the drill” looks very similar to “the welder” while those things do COMPLETELY different things
      • the drill is for mining ore and (in general) destroys stuff,
        • mining: the drill has two modi:
          • Left-Mouse-Button mode lets the player harvest ore
            • but only if the player keeps “Cursor-Up” and F pressed while drilling
          • “dig only” mode: the Right-Mouse-Button mode simply destroys landscapes X-D (was this really necessary to be put in?)
      • the welder is for constructing things
    • (-) the documentation is somewhat lacking, some Youtube tutorials just do not check out
    • (-) digging for resources with a very very small drill ain’t that much fun X-D
    •  this official (!) wiki page, how to handle “blueprints”:
      • Send a Blueprint to Someone <Brief description on how this works> <- obviously in 3 years nobody sought it necessary to put content here X-D
      • okay it is just like this … hit Ctrl+B and then browser publicly available “BluePrints”  nice 🙂 so at least this part seems self explainatory
    • (-) there should be a default mining robot
  • the neutral:
    • it is really for the hard core space and engineering nerd

mods:

wow! there is a “capture the flag” mod

“capture the iss flag in real life:” June 1, 2020: “SpaceX declared victory Monday in NASA’s cosmic capture-the-flag game”

They quickly claimed the prize left behind at the International Space Station nearly a decade ago by the last crew to launch from the U.S.

“Congratulations, SpaceX, you got the flag,” NASA astronaut Doug Hurley said a day after arriving at the space station.

maybe also interesting: Commodore 64 talks to ISS via radio

have fun!

space nerds!
