Player Commands

If you are unable to solve your issue using those commands, please open a ticket with our Staff by visiting our #support channel on Discord.

You can garage your grids in the home systems with commands, putting them in storage to keep the safe from harm as well as doing your part to help server performance.

Only the majority owner may garage a grid, and you can not manually save / load with the garage inside of natural gravity or with 15km of an enemy player.

Garage is *per server* - there is no way to use garage to move grids between servers.

Garaging does not take any sub-grids (piston/rotor heads, wheels, connector or landing gear docked ships), but does store the grid otherwise in-state, preserving inventories and power, etc

  • !g save "grid name"
    • Grid name is CASE-SENSITIVE and quotes are required for names with spaces. It is recommended to set your beacons on and to broadcast to 1.5Km to make them easier to spot when you load them.
    • Do not occupy the grid when garaging it or you will bug out when you later load the grid and you will be stuck until staff can delete your body for you
  • !g list
    • This command shows what is currently in your garage and gives you the index number as the first number in the row to use for loading.
  • !g load #
    • This command loads the grid back into the world within 1Km of your current location.While it tries to find a safe area, please keep >1Km away from asteroids and other objects to avoid having your grid be spawned inside something it shouldn't. Loading a grid from the garage loads it as a Station grid, you will need to convert it to ship yourself afterwards.

Currently there is a 30 second cooldown on garage commands, you can save up to 50 grids in your garage. The server automatically garages all grids (including in gravity) of players who have not been on in several days.

You can resolve some common issues easily by using these commands!

  • !fixship
    • This command cuts and pastes the ship you are looking at to fix bugged grids. Should work on faction ships - 150s cooldown . Do not run while the target ship is inside the shields of another ship (even if you own both shields) or it will explode
  • !fixship "grid name"
    • This is the same fixship command but runs based on what grid name you provide instead of requiring you to be looking at it. Grid name is CASE-SENSITIVE. Should work on faction ships - shares cooldown with base fixship command. Same warning about shields applies
  • !convert
    • Converts the grid you are looking at between ship and station. Works on faction ships, will not convert to ship in natural gravity. Outside of working on Faction grids, this follows normal conversion requirements
  • !rename "grid name" "new name"
    • Renames a grid if player or faction owned. This will help when you use a faction mates welders and they aren't online to rename it from "Large Grid XXXX" or whatever it's stuck at. As always, use quotes around names that involve spaces
  • !fixme
    • This command kills you, deletes your body and reconnects you to the server - designed to fix issues with being unable to respawn with no hud and other stuck player problems

Blocklimiter is a tool we are currently testing to help enforce our blocklimit rules. It may or may not be live on all servers at this time, so if the commands don't work, just ignore it for now.

  • !blocklimit mylimit
    • Shows players status of blocklimit counts. All 0 counts are ignored and not shown.
  • !blocklimit limits
    • Shows current blocklimit settings for the server
  • !blocklimit update mylimit
    • Updates player's count of blocks on the server. It has a 5min cool-down per player
  • !listnames
    • This command shows a list of players who database name (stored when a player first joins a server) does not match their current Steam name. This is useful for players attempting to use commands that require other players names (like !eco pay), as the command requires the database name to be used.
  • !stone
    • Deletes all stone in the inventories of the grid you are looking at. Not intended to be ran while sitting in the grid. 120s cooldown
  • !eco pay <faction/player> <name/tag> amount
    • This pays from your personal player balance to a faction or player balance. Does not work cross-server. We HIGHLY recommend you send a 1 credit test and confirm they received before sending the full amount to your target. We are not responsible if you pay the wrong target. Use quotes around names with spaces
      • Example command if I wanted to pay Player Crunch: !eco pay player Crunch 1000
      • Example command to pay faction Bakers Shipyards & Co (BCS): !eco pay faction BCS 1000
  • !eco deposit
    • Deposits all the space credits from the containers on the grid you are looking at that are owned or shared with you into your player balance.
      • IE: Containers on the grid have 1,000,000SC; player runs !eco deposit; player now has 1,000,000SC in their player balance
  • !eco withdraw <amount>
    • Withdraws amount of space credits from player balance to grid storage of grid you are looking at if there is room for the credits. This pairs with eco deposit - it removes from your player balance and places the physical item of Space Credits in the cargos of the grid you are looking at. This has a hard limit of 2.147 Billion credits at a time when used
  • !motd
    • Displays the Message of the Day popup you receive when first joining the server
  • !Discord / !discord
    • Opens the Steam overlay with a link to our Discord server
  • !gps
    • Adds the static GPS markers you receive on server join to your list again - Warp gate and planet locations
  • /w "Player Name" message
    • Whispers a player "message". There is no reply system in Space Engineers chat - you can only start your own whisper. Names are CASE-SENSITIVE, but do support tab-completion
  • /f
    • Switches to sending to faction chat.
  • /g
    • ​​​​​​​​​​​​​​Switches to global chat.
  • !Donate / !donate
