    Update 01.021.024 has been released. Survival mode is now available in Space Engineers! (This is the first "Survival mode" update and you may experience a number of bugs which will be fixed within the next updates). We have also changed the way you start building a small ship. Now you can start by placing a landing gear which can be attached to any surface - instead of a light armor block cube which was before. Also, we have added some new game scenarios, new music and sounds and tons of new features related to the Survival mode.

    I want to personally thank you for working till about 9:30 PM to make sure you released it today. I haven't played the fruits of your labors yet (Though, I will once I finish this post). You guys are great, work much harder than most Devs teams I've seen. Your hardwork, dedication, and labor haven't gone unnoticed. Again, Thank you.

    It's broken for me. I can not access the custom world menu without the game acting like I am constantly hitting '7' on the keyboard.

    Awesome! Any chance of getting big ship weapons online soon? Or even adding cannons/launchers to them like small ships?

    It seems like your update just broke Steam...
    Even Valve can't handle this much awesomeness... :3

    there is one more thing need to be fixed, and this game will be my game of the year :woot: please fix that desync when somebody is walking on my large ship when I'm flying it. I want to have 1 big ship where my friends can walk, or just create some pods where they can sit and wait untill I arrive to some place. But pods wont fix the whole problem.. walking on a moving ship is essential

    So like, i just went straight in, happily mining and refining, then it occured to me 'will i run out of power' just as everything went silent due to no power. Now unless im being a noob (which i am cause like, first hour) i cant refine uranium without power to get more power.
