Stationeers July 7 Update: Tutorials Return and Save File Changes

Stationeers Steam

Stationeers recently received a new update that added changes to save files and bug fixes. It also brought back the Tutorials, which are useful for new players.

Save File Changes

From this update onward, autosaves and manual saves will be grouped together, similar to most other games. The developers made this change because it helps the game to be more intuitive and improves the server’s state. They will go over this feature in great detail in the future.


During the major coding update for the game, the old tutorial system got completely messed up and was not working as intended. Players had to watch other content creators or explore themselves to learn more about the game.

The developers did not leave it just like that and did everything possible to get the system working. This update shows that with the return of Tutorials, which is a key in helping newbies. Although it is working, the developers want the community to send feedback to improve the tutorial system.
