Update 1.199 - Heavy Industry

Keen Support shared this announcement 2 years ago

Hello, Engineers!

The next Major (1.199) release for Space Engineers is upon us. Heavy Industry Introduces a whole new vision of industry in Space Engineers! A reimagining of industrial might, from lunar mining site to factory floor; smelting, refining, and mass production never looked so good.

This massive update is one of our biggest! Including DLC, Heavy Industry adds nearly 100 new blocks and block variants to Space Engineers! We hope you enjoy exploring Heavy Industry as much as we did creating it.

Very awesome. Some much needed changes to Parking and Power. This list of bugfixes is great.

Small Grid Window block collisions were fixed, but what about the Small Grid Slope block collisions? they are still broken.



and still waiting for the fix to find modded server on pc to get implemented.

we now wait since the rise of the console servers for that fix.




Fixed ships with subgrids not using thrusters for dampening correctly

This is still not correctly working i have a ship connected with a connecter. Using the bigger ship with the small grid docked the big ship still slowly falls in gravity playing on xbox one.

If i unconnect it and just use landing gear it seems to work as intended


Upon further testing it seems that I have found that turning off all thrusters of your subgrid ship solves this issue. I previously thought they were off however i messed up my grouping and fixed them to be off when flying the main grid. However if you have any thrusters on it causes the dampers of the main grid to fall slowly in gravity. Also turning dampers off and leaving thrusters on the subgrid also causes main grid to fall slowly. Is this intended? Because turning off dampers on a subgrid could be better in some cases then shutting down thrusters on it. Mainly launch times i would think instead of checking to see if your grid is on in the heat of battle

Other than that this update rocks

Ps also found shutting down power for subgrid solves this but doesn't allow power/cargo transfer to and from the subgrid ship itself thus letting batteries to charge.


still can't use left and right triggers with xbox 1 contoler


hi KSH i whanna say your latest DLC has broken all Save games Unable to load world. unloaded world

Steam version


are conveyor pipes gonna get a 'T' junction?


i finnaly got a old save running no more unable to load world. world unloaded


also the game could use another small fixup namely the connection to steamworkshop most off the time when i whant to build a blueprint or just plain place it the steam workshop whont b loaded

even after repeated Pressing F10


Please add a link to these updates, what I did was click the link in game and it took me to this website, I was hoping that it would have had more than just a description of the update, thanks.


We got a bunch of small ninja updates since the major release, but where are the patch notes? We'd like to know what's fixed or changed!


i bot it but did not get it just wow


AMEN thank you for fixing the assembler! BUT... If you place the assembler lined up with the Refinery on the same level, that side rail on the 1st level of the refinery is in the way. can that one peice be nicked?


What happened to the Airtight Hydrogen Tanks? They vanished of my ship and G menu.


I noticed a small thing about the Assemblers. If you look at the inventory while assembling something, you will notice the Ingots in the produced box and components in the ingot box. pretty minor, just odd to see. Please bring back the"Airtight Hydrogen Tanks".



I noticed a Small thing with the assemblers. In the Inventory display, the ingots and components are reversed in their display boxes. Pretty minor, just odd to see. Also, can you please bring back the"Airtight Hydrogen Tanks"? Thanks.


Your "Airtight Hydrogen Tanks" are modded.


Not sure if this is fixed or I missed something, Turrets in dedicated server (steam download of 1.199) currently do not target anything no matter what setting they are on (yes they have ammo)
