Step-by-Step Guide to Split a Stack in Space Engineers

Space Engineers is a space sandbox game created by Keen Software House. It allows players to build, mine, and craft items in the vastness of space, ranging from spaceships and stations to gravity generators and nuclear reactors. One crucial skill needed while playing the game is the ability to split a stack. This guide will explain in detail how to do this.

Understanding the Process

The process of splitting a stack in Space Engineers is fairly simple. It involves placing two items of the same type in a container, selecting one of them, and then using the right mouse button to split the stack (as shown in the image below).
