Community Spotlight 🧐 January 2022


We are continually inspired by our incredible community – your creations, machinations, mods, stories, and visions of the world of Space Engineers drive us to excel. We would like to share with you some of our favorites from the month of January!

Life’Tech-Algaetechnology by Kuvat

Adds a new Algae-based technology to the Game. One kind of Algae is found on earths, and the other one on the Alien Planet’s Ice, or they can be purchased on trading Stations for an immense amount of Space Credits.

You can then use them to build Hydrogen- and Oxygen farm, or in cooperation with the Plant and Cook mod Algae can be used to make Algae-based meat for food.

Builder’s Skybox by enenra

This mod changes the skybox to one ideally suited for creative building. It features a dark grey background with grid lines and axis labels in their corresponding colors, giving the appearance of a modelling application such as Blender.

It features a grid as a background, with axis denoted by label and color.

Star Trek Mod Pack by Qarannia

Welcome to the Star Trek Mod Pack by Q-Tech. This is a collection of all my Star Trek themed mods assembled together into one pack.

This mod pack requires WeaponCore to function, so make sure you have that loaded in your world.

Kinetic Devastation by Echthros

With this mod, you will be able to hit grids, asteroids, and planets at tremendous velocities and enjoy the resulting devastation.

Not only will it prevent many of the more awkward physical non-interactions so common at high speeds, but also opens up a range of kinetic options for weaponry.

Cargo Scanner by Patrick

Short range scanner that detects valuable cargo on other ships and displays the information for the player.

Now you know what they’ve got, but is the juice worth the squeeze? Then get the Weapon Scanner too!

Radio Spectrometry by DraygoKorvan

Investigate far away asteroids using radio spectrometry to get an idea about their composition before you actually travel to it.

Point your ore detector directly at a distant asteroid to get a readout. Access the readouts by loading the Radio Spectrometry Reader script in any block with an LCD. There needs to be a spike in the graph at each of the 3 points of an ore for that ore to be present in the asteroid.

Babylon 5 Shadow Aliens NPCs by RogueCmdr

You now stand between the Darkness and The Light..
The Year is πŸπŸ‘πŸπŸ – The name of the place… π’π©πšπœπž π„π§π π’π§πžπžπ«π¬ -𝑻𝒉𝒆 π‘Ίπ’‰π’‚π’…π’π’˜π’” 𝑹𝒆𝒕𝒖𝒓𝒏!

These are the Shadows from Babylon 5 TV Series.

Tire Wear by Clockwork168

Wheels will take gradual damage while driving. Damage is a function of angular velocity and linear acceleration – with acceleration being the larger factor; your wheels will wear slightly faster at higher speeds, and hard acceleration, braking, and cornering will cause rapid wear.

Wear will not occur at low speeds (<20 m/s) and it affects all suspension wheels, including modded!

AWG Rotors and Hinges

Rotors and hinges, separated out of AWG’s Convenient Weapons Pack (since who wants to download 650MB of armour, explosives, scripts and other faff when you want juicy subgridding equipment?!)

PS: Read rotor descriptions, and be careful of the flat rotors and their inverted offsets!

Planet Overvent by Sikareshki

Change the scenery of your world with this beautiful Gas Giant. πŸͺ

– Gravity: 6.4g
– Atmosphere: Non-breathable
– Rings! And so many of them!

It uses 3D-ish Clouds by DMATH
