Space Engineers Alpha Footage Shows Off New Magnetic Landing Gears

on November 6, 2013 12:35 PM

Space Engineers continues to add more features to its list of space sandbox capabilities, with the newly announced magnetic landing gears, which you can view below.

The gears will glow in three colors depending on the ships proximity to a surface:

  • Black: not in proximity
  • Yellow: in proximity
  • Green: locked

When landing gears are above a surface, press “P” and they will be attached to the surface. This way you can attach a small ship on a large ship, grab a ship, land your ship, connect two ships and more.

Space Engineers is also available on Steam Early Access for $14.99, which comes with some good perks for early adopters.
