Uncommon Shortcuts

This page lists some of the lesser-known keyboard shortcuts for Space Engineers.


Ctrl + Z
Used when facing a ship, this locks your suit dampeners/your ship into 'relative damping' mode. This means you will match the speed of the grid you are aimed at. NB: You must have no other keys pressed when hitting this command.


Shift + MMB
This is the spectator mode equivalent of Ctrl+Z, however it is unfortunately not acceleration-aware so will only match your camera to the speed of the grid you are aimed at that precise moment in time.


Ctrl + Mousewheel up/down
Adjust the rotation speed of your spectator camera - as in, how fast you turn or roll your camera.


Shift + Mousewheel up/down
Adjust the speed of your spectator camera - as in, how fast you move forward/backward/up/down/strafe left/strafe right.


Ctrl + B
This will blueprint the grid you are aimed at, including all subgrids.


Ctrl + Shift + B
When aimed at a grid, this will blueprint the subgrid you are pointing at and ignore the rest of the grid.
