“When war calls, industry answers!”
We are excited to announce our second update in the new Warfare series!
Heavy Industry focuses on the engineering, production, and logistics side of conflict, as well as bringing a series of new quality-of-life features to Space Engineers. Heavy Industry expands your creative possibilities, delivering one of our most expansive DLC’s with nearly 100 new blocks and block variants!
As with our previous updates, this DLC and update will be released on all supported platforms simultaneously. We want you to enjoy Space Engineers on your platform of choice.
Heavy industry focuses on industry, manufacturing, and logistics. This includes the introduction of new variants of some classic Space Engineers blocks like the Refinery, Assembler, Large Cargo container, Hydrogen tank, and the highly anticipated Hydrogen Thruster variant!
Heavy Industry includes new blocks to outfit your base, space station, or fortress including the new “Armor Panel”. Armor panels come in a wide selection of variants and were designed with multiple uses in mind. Sheath a vessel in armor, use them as interior walls! Also included in this update is the tiny block with a huge impact, the small grid small merge block. A community request, this tiny merge block makes an entirely new range of creations possible.
Of course, our focus on industry would not be complete without visiting some classic themes of industrial design. Structural beams and pylons have been added as well as an entirely new variant conveyor system, provided in both small and large grid variants.
We are excited to introduce a new starting scenario “Petram Orbiter”! Positioned high above the scorching deserts of Patram, this asteroid outpost is fully fitted for a trip to the surface or exploration of the nearby asteroid field. Investigate this tiny industrial complex and take advantage of the provided manufacturing facilities or strike out and explore.
Heavy Industry provides you with new choices in production, manufacturing, and design. This is a continuation of our Warfare content and our exploration into conflict in the Space Engineers universe. This update also features some major quality of life improvements with a comprehensive overhaul of the power & break toggles.
The default behavior for the parking and power systems meant that any time one of these systems was toggled, ALL attached grids would also toggle. This could cause unexpected behavior and often resulted in a great deal of clang, frustration, and occasionally a new invention.
To combat this, both the power system and braking system have now been improved upon by adding more detailed controls, this includes changing the core functionality of these defaults as well as adding new individual toggles to many blocks.
We feel that this higher degree of control, and changes to the basic functionality of the break and power toggle, will make creating simpler where it needs to be, and more nuanced where you want it to be.
Warfare may be thought of in terms of battles, and battlefields. The engineer knows that long before the first battle, it is logistics, manufacturing, and the science and engineering that supports it, that determines the victor. Prepare for war!
Similar to our previous major releases, we hope you will take this opportunity to support the continued development of Space Engineers. This DLC pack consists of cosmetic items that enrich your game visually. None of the features in this package provide any advantage to players who purchase this DLC.
The price of the Heavy Industry Pack is $3.99 USD or your regional equivalent. Show your continued support for Space Engineers and check out the Heavy Industry Pack.
This update includes both free features as well as the option of paid DLC. Functional items that directly impact game mechanics are always offered as a free upgrade. Cosmetic upgrades are included as paid DLC content. This is how we structure all of our Major DLC releases and we hope you enjoy it.
