Volumetric Planet / Open World
Find valuable defensible areas or go to battle alongside your allies to take enemy lands and secure resources. Use the primitive roads to transport wagons and siege equipment to better vanquish your foes.
The planet is full of life including: trees, plants, animals, and savage barbarian warriors. Explore, build or fight and if you tire of the default planet you can download modded worlds from the Steam Workshop or create your own.
World map with fast travel
Travel to new locations in an instant. The fast travel feature can be configured by selecting cooldown times between uses and by limiting destinations by terrain type and enemy held lands.
Create custom banners and flags to use as your symbol as you build and fight in Medieval Engineers. Additional patterns can be created or downloaded from the Steam Workshop. See the Banner Modding Guide to get started making new banner patterns.
Fully Interactable World
Interact with many parts of structures and constructions. Open and close doors and windows. Control who can access the controls on your doors. Move furniture around and set fire to torches. Control access to land and use workstations to research and build new things. Interact with chests and barrels to move inventory.
Everything in the game is also fully destructible! Smash furniture with an axe or knock down castle walls with a trebuchet. Even the animals can be killed with a crossbow.

Structural Integrity / Destruction
When blocks become damaged they can no longer support the blocks around them. When too many blocks are damaged something is bound to come crashing down in glorious real-time destruction!

Freedom to Build and Engineer Anything
Multiple Construction Types
Start new constructions as dynamic (movable) or static (immovable) by placing them above the ground (dynamic) or fixing them to the ground (static). Dynamic structures work best for furniture, carriages and wagons, farming machinery, and siege engines. Static structures are best suited for small wooden structures, houses, and castles. Large static constructions are subject to structural integrity which provides engineering challenges to large buildings and converts parts to dynamic fractures when they break.
