So i got the beta for xbox and have been having a great time with my friends. The problem is that more than 4 of my friends want to play on my server. So im suggesting a change that would allow maybe 5 to 6 people in total.

Its a bug. That will be fixed before launch. Xbox one/s will have You the host and 1 friend while the xbox one x will have you the host and 3 friends.

That would be really cool if it stays that way, but i doubt it, fun either way :)

My hope is that they keep it. To me 4 players is enough. But for some reason i could not get a 3rd friend to join. Kept saying "server full"

I would like it if they made it so that xbox one s could support the host and at least 3 more.

Consoles have a weak cpu compared to an actual computer. If one of your friends have an Xbox one x then they can host the world and you can have up to 4 people. If both of your friends don’t have an Xbox one x then you could wait for next generation Xbox because they will boost the number of people even more. They are also looking into doing dedicated servers if it’s possible.

I've been playing on the original Xbox one and I've had no problems with host 3 of my friends, so please keep it at 4 for the original.

That was actually a bug. But we will consider increasing number of players in the future.

On the original i can only play with a max of two players me and my friend why not have an experimental mode that allows more player like 5 or 6 so if the game in unstable its because experimental mode is on and can be change at any point in the game making the crashing lagging or low frame rate the consumers fault and not the game itself. While new updates and patches roll out making experimental mode more stable and user friendly as the months go by before the release of xbox series X making an experimental mode feature even more realistic and usable by the general player base also just an idea why not allow people who own space engineers on both xbox and pc to host an private server from there pc to xbox so there pc would render in 90% of whats going on within the game and maybe if its done right allow mods to be in the game. Im not talking about cross platform however just an update to the pc version which allows server hosting so i could launch a private server then get on xbox and join my private server and invite all my friends is this at all possible?

This game needs some kind of servers similar to ark etc.


The 4 max players is way too small and I refuse to put hours in some random server building stuff for me to TRY and go back on the server and carry on if not then you gotta start again.


We need PERSISTENT servers for this type of game otherwise it will die and fail before launch

Yeah, we need official servers asap! A lot of people quit after day 1 of launch because 4 players isn't enough and there's no official servers. 10 Players on officials at least. 20 would be absolutely amazing. Just provide a lot of them. Please do this, this game is so good.

The same happened to us. This has to be addressed before purchase, or just let the players change it to 4 and warn them in the game that this action might affect performance. Like a play at your own risk thing. But this way is just wrong. We bought the game and now we can’t play together.

Confirming, we will enable more players via experimental mode soon. We will also work on making it possible also in safe mode (further optimizing the game) or other means (dedicated servers), which will take some time.

We will keep you updated about the progress.

Is this only for Xbox one X though? I’m remaining hopeful, but I had bought this game after years of playing it on PC so excited that I could expand the number of people that I play with through Xbox now. And when I loaded it on my Xbox one (basic), just to find out that I could only play with one at a time... it was just a massive let down for me. I love the game but I’ve been so discouraged from playing it. You can’t just experience clanking and spazzing of your vehicles alone! Lol

Im on xbox and im not able to select more than 2 players. Option is grayed out for me. I have tried reinstalling the game and it did not fix issue. I am no longer on beta, im playing released version. Any ideas?

Unfortunately the gray scaled player slider is because if you are on anything lower than the X, the devs have limited players to 2 (including host so technically host +1), however the X can have the host + 3 in a game. My hope is that they update the player count to the "bug" that was patched out in day 1 of the beta.( 4 players for the one/s, and 8 for the X)

Dedicated servers are essential, then in the store's trailer, and in the gameplay displayed in the main game menu. Their lack was a major disappointment. I hope to be able to play soon with my friends.

Yeah I love the game but the only way I can play with up to 4 people including myself is by playing the red ship scenario and exclusively red ship. I dont understand how hosting works at all but if I can host 4 people on red ship with minimal issues apart from one of my friends who has bad ping frequently disconnects surely I can host 4 on other scenarios or a custom
