I don't know much about servers, so my apologies if this seems a foolish question. The multiplayer game for Space Engineers is currently a bit disappointing in my opinion, simply because it exists in the form of hundreds of relatively small servers with only a few players each. Many of them are troubled by lag and all the servers I've played on to date have been shut down after no more than a few months. Given the idea of factions, the vast sizes and distances involved, and the scale of newer additions like planets, I think the multiplayer for Space Engineers would be worlds better if there were a much larger, "central" server hosted by the developers (or something like that), capable of supporting more data and more players - as in hundreds or more, if that's actually possible without devastating lag. I'm thinking more along the lines of mass-multiplayer games. Again, I don't know much about servers and how they work, so it wouldn't surprise me if this would simply require too much in the way of resources or if Space Engineers is too detailed a game to make that possible. However, if that isn't the case, is there any such server planned for the future, by Keen or an affiliate? Space Engineers is terrific as it is, but roaming around alone gets old eventually - a more expansive dimension of multiplayer competition, factions, et cetera would add so much to the game.
