You guys should have left everything alone. Now I can't find any ice on asteroids (visited 576 on current playthrough), Can't find ice anywhere but poles on planets, suit energy runs out WAY to quickly, having the lander at startup was really nice and the game didn't seem like a job before the update, space pirate bases used to be nice, ore on asteroids is now very sparce, and last but not least...…...no uranium on planets sucks. The only good thing about the game that has been added are the two new energy producing blocks and ladders...….that's it. Oh and thrusters being more powerful really takes all the fun out of the game too. This game went from being my favorite to being one of the worst games I've ever played. If you wanted to add anything good to the game, you should have added more planets

I am also disappointed to have the most popular game in 1.5 years uploaded about 1600 hours after the new update I don't play much.

For the most part i'm very happy with the changes.

The main thing i dislike is the progression system, it still feels like a mess and no fun at all to unlock blocks behind a very artificial progression. Its just a time sink that adds nothing to the game once its all unlocked

Well it went from being a fun game about exploration to being a headache of a job just trying to get off the ground

Thrusters will reduced in power back in 2015 and again the release update. Thrusters are so underpowered it takes making a borg cube of pure thrusters to get any actual performance and still have space for all the massive blocks, storage, and weight.

I never had a problem with thrusters until now. I liked them the way they were because it was similar to the kn/weight ratio that exists in reality. Also i made a borg cube in one of my older survival games.....it was awsome :)

I wanted more PVE fun in this update but there are no random encounters on Earthlike and its still the same planet it was since 2015... except they removed Uranium and added a pee shine on the planet and added nicer trees but the terrain is still the worse. I gave up on a planet overhaul and learn how to mod and I added the ME planet and use its lighting system which destroys SE Earthlike pee shine and the terrain is sooo nice none of that grass teeth that rips rover.

But hey at least we got that pitiful hydrogen engine that drains hydrogen quickly and there is no hope of building a decent compact vehicle and the stupid tech tree. I know you can turn it off but it makes me mad that it was wasted time that could been used to add more interesting things in SE.

Temperature is a joke I don't feel cold or see frost on my visor but a tiny word is telling me that I am...and week before release all they did was hype LADDERS over and over might well call it a Ladder update. I wanted Engineer combat to be more interesting to for being a SURVIVAL UPDATE...I wanted to heal myself with a item,reload my gun,not die instantly to bullets...HMMMM maybe that tech tree could added some suit upgrades.

In short this survival update has nothing for me to be surviving against, not the environment,not pirates(somewhat in space) or interesting wildlife. Just surviving against dealing with the slow grind of building something decent when it use to be quick and fun.

Hello, Engineer!


First of all I would like to say we are really sorry you don't enjoy the update and we would definitely like to improve your gameplay experience.


Uranium not spawning on planets is intended feature.


Ice not spawning is space is definitely not intended at all and shouldn't happen. I was trying to reproduce this and was always able to find ice in space.


Are you playing with any mods which could affect resources spawning?


Also you can send me your world and I will happily take a look at this issue.


Thank you very much and sorry for troubles.


Kind Regards

I finally found ice on asteroids after starting 4 new games. I don't use mods. Could adding additional planets and restoring the raiding outposts/stations as well as the battleships and cargo ships that used to be in the game pre-update be a possibility? The game was much more fun at that time
