How to add mods to your server

Adding mods to your server is quite simple and only requires a couple of steps.

Please make sure that you have stopped the server before following this guide.

  1. The first thing you will want to do is to click the Configuration Files button on the panel.

  2. You will now want to open the SpaceEngineers-Dedicated.cfg by clicking Text Editor on the right hand side of the panel.

  3. You will now see all of your server configuration options neatly laid out

  4. Note: We do suggest that if you are going to edit this file you use a dedicated program, such as Notepad++, to reduce the chances of making a mistake. You can then go to "Language" and set it to XML making the file much easier to understand


  5. Now you will want to navigate to the bottom of the file where you will see a section called Mods.

  6. You now need to open up the Space Engineers steam workshop and find the addon that you want to add to the server.

  7. Once you have found the addon you want to use you will want to right click on the page and Copy page URL

  8. Paste this URL into your browser and head to the link.

  9. You will now want to copy the ID of the addon, which will be displayed at the top on the far right of the URL, like so;

  10. Now head back to your control panel and add the ID to the section within Mods called UnsignedLong.

  11. Continue adding addons like this, each within their own UnsignedLong.

  12. Now remove the comments around the code and save the file.
