KSH employees,

First, great job with the game. I saw a post on youtube asking for suggestions so I thought I would take the opportunity. I know you are working on many things to including dedicated servers, higher multiplayer capabilities, higher PCU which will all improve the game highly. I would greatly appreciate the ability to orbit. Everything I have read says it is not possible on the Xbox without a speed mod. I think it would be amazing to be able to have an orbiting satellite for multiple purposes, spying on the enemy, extending communication, launching weapons, or as a moving fueling station. I understand you can have all these basically stationary in space outside of the gravity well, which on earthlike is around 40000m/40km. But that isn't very "Space Engineers" and it's quite far for some operations. Again, thank you for your hard work. You have made an excellent product.

It is not possible to orbit the planets as you need the speed mod to do that, mods might be coming so be patient 🤗


We will consider this feature. Keep voting.

Thank you for your feedback!


I recently made a suggestion very similar to this one. If anyone is still reading this comment section: please upvote this suggsetion, and go and upvote the one I made too:

If Keen see that suggestions which are all getting at similar stuff are getting lots of votes from users, they are more likely to consider exploring them.
