I followed every single step. Game launches fine (altho it seems like its crashing), but when I select new game and go into the loadingscreen, after loading the planets to 100% the screen goes black. 10 seconds later it crashes to the desktop, closing down steam completely and 50% of the time forcing me to restart my computer as well, because everything is messed up.

Please send your logs with a description of your issue after it happens ... Read more

Some questions we would ask you first concerning the game not starting on your system:
When you start the game...
  • is there a game window with the "Loading..." text visible at least for a few seconds?
  • is after a few seconds the version number (e.g. "Alpha 10.0.2") displayed in the top left corner?
  • did you try to directly start "Empyrion.exe" or "EmpyrionLauncher.exe" from the folder where Steam installed it?
  • you can find the location in Steam: right-click on "Empyrion - Galactic Survival" and select "Properties", then select "Local files" tab and click "Browse Local Files..."
  • in the opened Explorer window go to the "Client" folder and start the exe or try with the "EmpyrionLauncher.exe" in the Empyrion root folder

    To better understand what exactly happens it would be good to observe the following:
  • open Windows Task Manager (CTRL-SHIFT-ESC) (or better the "Proce...

Hi Galactic Survivalists,

Welcome to Part IV of Alpha 10 Experimental!

While we are constantly making progress towards the first release candidate in our weekly EXP updates, today’s patch will again add a few more toys and feature updates. Enjoy the new Texture-Color Tool that combines coloring & texturing in one tool and an entirely new movement controller mode for vessels. Please note: both are test candidates. So please have a closer look. As always, it will depend on your feedback, if those features make it into the Release Candidate and the public version!

For our creative minds and all builders: we increased the available shapes for the heavy windows by adding a few more of the requested connectors and variants. For those that might wonder if the “standard” and “armored” window groups will be worked on in this way as well, the short answer is: yes!

The Base Attack mode also got a few upgrade... Read more

The updated Alien Planet

Update: May 29, 2019 (Build 2483)
- Fixed: Chat message exception


Hi Galactic Survivalists!

Welcome to the third installment of Alpha 10 Experimental, where we added even more new stuff for your enjoyment! This time we introduced a highly requested balancing parameter for shields (recharge delay when the shield is hit) and a hotkey to activate / deactivate the shield. In addition, we added a first batch of new window shapes (Heavy Windows for testing), as well as more variants for doors and shutters.

Moreover, the new blockshapes menu can now be configured with less hassle: We renamed all the internal ‘key names’ that are used in the config file. Now, you simply need to skip the blank of the localized name. If you want to add ‘Ramp C Low’ to a slot, simply use ‘RampCLow’ - and so on. You do not need to dig through the Loca file or other configs ... Read more

Hi Galactic Survivalists!

We just released a new update with Unity 2018.3 on the public branch. For this update, we switched the network protocol back to RakNet since UNET could not handle the network traffic on busy servers. We had to do some extensive internal refactoring to ensure that RakNet is working with Unity 2018.3.

Please let us know if you experience any problems.

Changelog: Alpha 9.7 (Build 2319)

- Switched network protocol back to RakNet
- Internal refactoring to make sure RakNet is compatible with Unity 2018.3
