Try Escape From Mars.

It's an interesting departure from the open world resource utopia - you can't refine ores and you have to unlock tech, all while fighting for your life and robbing convoys.

I think the game is still badly tunned. There should be more variety of armor blocks, including higher inclinations. The current armor blocks limit creativity quite much, you have to "squeeze" the other blocks to make more original shapes but that limits the size of the ship. Also, with more variety of armor blocks we would be able to make better interiors without needing the ship to look too much like a brick.

To make nice things and have proper fun you have to stick to middle size, no more of 50 meters long ships for example. If you go over that you end up flying with large bricks too expensive to build. Right now a 50 meters long ship is limited on capabilities because you cannot fit many "other blocks" inside of it, a 50 meters ship should be able to perform more tasks than just hauling or just being able to fire some rockets, same with other purposes...

For example I want to have a ship with a nice engineering room, nice pilot room, few nice sleep rooms and few scape pods, a nice computer room and able to fire little block long distance missiles as well as having jump capability and high maneuverability. If I want that I have to build a big brick because I cannot fit everything inside a middle sized ship.

Not gonna lie this one looks like it might go way ahead of Space Engineers, construction mechanics look way better:



Too bad its still in alpha

Closed alpha, to boot. But yes, definitely looks promising.
