While we are offering directions for initial set up, we offer no direct warranty or support related to host your own servers. Opening up your internet to outside connections is to be done completely at your own risk. Any attempt to modify the game or connect to our backend services to circumvent unlocks will be met with an immediate ban. Now for actual details! First off, you are going to need to download the Dedicated Server files via steam. Once the files are installed in the directory of your choosing, you will need to modify two. Navigate to the directory of installation and then. The two files we will be working in are Engine. First up, lets tackle Engine.
Dedicated servers in Space Engineers allow players to connect to a third party host, rather than using a player-host, in a peer-to-peer set-up. They are game instances intended for long time multiplayer games. This will result to a faster connection and a more fluent multiplayer performance with less lag. Dedicated servers are available for everyone who owns Space Engineers. However, to obtain the game server files, at least one Steam account needs to have a valid license. They work the same way as in the game. Global configuration Here you can set, whether the game log files should have dates appended to them and whether the server should automatically send the log files to Keen Software House upon crash. If you want to create or manage the server as a service you need administrator rights.
