Space Engineers – Locations and Tips (Engineering Degree Achievement)

In this guide You will find all locations with tasks in Learning to Survive scenario. You may need them if You want to get Engineering Degree achievement.


Below You will find list of bases/platforms where You can find tasks. Just add their location as a new GPS point (if You don’t know how to do that, check the FAQ section at the end of this post). When You will get there, use a shining button near orange GPS point to start a task. If there is no annotation that base or ship is pressurized, You should probably recharge Your O2 before travelling there or use a ship which is pressurized. Order of locations is mostly random. You may want to add all GPS points, plan optimal route to a few of them and hide the rest.

How to add custom GPS point?

You can add new GPS point by opening Your inventory and clicking on the last tab – GPS. There You can either click on New or New from current pos. Then simply replace values in fields X, Y and Z. You can also change the Name which will be displayed on Your screen. Short note: too many active GPS points make a complete mess on screen.

What about Planetesphobia and It Takes But One achievements?

When You will finish all tasks, You will unlock new GPS point named Planet. There You have to attack pirate base. This is the “final objective” of Learning to Survive scenario.
