Other survival games with heavy building emphasis also use dedicated servers that players can pay for. ARK, Conan, Dayz, Minecraft and others allow such online play. It would be a huge draw for the console version if we had the ability to rent servers even if it was a beta to test feasibility.
Dedicated Servers XB
Dedicated or Official servers for survival games are a must.
If the Next Generation console is released before dedicated servers are available please provide us with at least 12 players local.
Even with the PCU limitations Roleplay or Faction base events could still be hosted with a minimum of 12 players.
The low player count would be totally acceptable and replayable if there is some solution to create a persistent server.
Having to rely on one person hopefully being online pushes almost all of the player base to play by themselves especially the long-term players.
Persistent servers are going to be the key to the longevity of the game be through dedicated servers or some other simple solution.
Will there be persistent servers for players to enjoy and possibly even purchase on or yearly basis? If this isn't something under consideration it really should be. I'd love the chance to have 64 players or more online at a time and possibly far more offline. Nitrado has a great hosting service and fair prices if need be you could easily go through them to host servers and I can almost guarantee people will buy. I know I will. I'd like to see big servers like the YouTube channel LSG has on PC it would be something i know about of people I've played with want and would love to have.
Not sure if the development team for Xbox's Version of Space Engineers has had a look at the Microsoft Store since release but the rating is 1 1/2 Stars. Every single review mentions DEDICATED SERVERS. This game should not have launched without them. PERIODT. Everyone in the beta said this and you guys still proceeded to launch without them. You guys have until April 15th for something to happen or at least a statement, or I personally, along with a massive group of other players will be processing a refund. I have hope, but I'm prepared to be disappointed.
So hear me out what if you guys released an update on pc to allow hosting of private servers to an xbox platform. Kinda like Ark survival evolved allowing your pc to process what happening in game and allowing more player to play on space engineers. This in theory would also solve the issue with mods not being on xbox which isnt an issue but would greatly increase your ability to create and build within the game. Dont confuse this with cross-platform cause this is not what i am trying to explain im trying to say why not update the pc version to allow private servers to be hosted to xbox from your pc so your pc can in theory render and process what happening within the game on xbox i dont know if this is possible but id like for people to give solution to the player cap and mods for space engineers on xbox. Lets help the devs with ideas
I absolutely love this game. Been having a blast. It's been performing very well on my Original Xbox one. I saw dedicated servers was being asked for and I also would like to see them, I was also wondering if a possibility to rent a server through Nitrado on Xbox one with Crossplay with pc players would be in the future? Also Please thank your whole team for creating such a great game. Seriously I cannot thank you enough. That's why I'm asking for nitrado servers. So I would be able to play this game with my children. Yes they understand this game, a bit better then I do. ☺
Hi, Developers,I really love your game. I am a player pursuing a 1: 1 size spaceship. I would like to ask if it is possible for you to continue to increase the pcu limit in the future.
When I was building, a lot of science fiction ships were limited by this. How about at least raising the ceiling if you can?
I know that there is currently no block limit。But when I made a huge urban spaceship Atlantis, the physical grid restricted me.
I do n’t know if the expression I ’m talking about is correct. The physical grid that I understand is equivalent to modeling. If it is a plane, then even a plane of a thousand squares does not have too many physical grids. Is it called pcu? Because my language is not English.I hope you can understand which limitation I am talking about.
I have done a lot of tests and attempts. Under the same square, the more complex geometric hull will occupy more physical grids. The Atlantis I made last year is very huge. Even if it is all placed on ssd, it uses 32g of memory and it is still loaded for 2 and a half hours, and then it crashes after running for 5 minutes. I guess the reason for the crash is that I burst the memory of the graphics card. But I believe that if there are better CPUs and GPUs, the increase in the ceiling should be tolerable? My current PC configuration is i7 7700 & 1050ti 4g.
I really hope that this will become true, thank you for reading my message.
could we get a dedicated server package that allows for Xbox servers to be hosted from your PC, something similar to what you can find in Ark Survival Evolved for the console.
This would allow for us to bypass PCU limits or player limits as the power a PC can bring to bare will be a lot more then what a console output.
Myself and 2 others that got this game a few weeks ago, just discovered the PCU limit while building. We had no idea that this was in the game.
Anyway, are dedicated servers in the works? or is there a chance we can get a server client for xbox or PC that can host our games to remove the limit?
The base game itself is very good its just that server add so much more like a faction with 30 people vs another with 40. I"ve also seen a lot of videos of servers and they look so fun but i have SE on xbox so no servers :(. Servers should also be added because then you can play without a host having to be online to play and their can be big factions. Congrats on the game tho it is wonderful definitely will spend more money to buy expansion pack for it.
Hi love the game but 3 things, official servers for x box are a MUST and will increase sales(50k pcu per person plz)
Pcu limit on xbox the way it is needs be pcu per person Not per map,
Random encounters and economy bases are cool but eat ALL PCU build a ship and go to the moon to find out, make thier pcu not count unless a block has been hacked and limit economy bases per 150 km as 10+ on the moon is a bit much
