    Is it possible to use direct connect without Steam being online ? The reason is sometimes my wife will use my steam library (steam family sharing feature) and when that happens, i can't be online on Steam. Most games aren't a problem even for some multiplayer games. But this one is a no go. Sounds like Space engineer has to be connected to steam or I just can't use the direct connect cause "join game" button tells me Steam is offline (duh !)

    I was thinking of using the direct connect command on a shortcut like the one below but that doesnt work. It just launches the game and thats it.

    +connect 8.8.4.4:27016

    So I can speak for other games. You have to be online in steam, if you want to play on online servers.
    Simple : offline mode = only Lan servers

    There should be a way to bypass steam servers as I connect to a direct IP if thats not the case.
