Server Config issues

Post by Xentrox » Wed Jan 27, 2016 9:19 pm

So i am trying to create a server with the listed Mods, Server name, World name. I am trying to generate a new world map file with One planet, where players randomly spawn just outside the planet's atmosphere. I used the Space engineers dedicated server confix program to make my config file, but my players spawn way way way out in space, and cannot use the lander to get onto the planet. I Also would like to remove ships from the spawn list but do not know how, here is my config file.

If you want to make config changes, you're going to want to make them in your sandbox.sbc file (not the config you change online) because the sandbox.sbc file has all these same settings and it takes priority. Connect to your server via FTP and find it in:

/XXXXXXX/spaceengi/Saves/GAME-NAME/

Make sure your server isn't running while you edit this file, it's constantly being written to and overwritten, so editing on the fly isn't always going to work.

You'll want this to be TRUE:
<DisableRespawnShips>false</DisableRespawnShips>

I'm not sure how to modify default spawn locations, I just make sure there is always a powered Medbay owned by "Nobody" so new players can spawn there.
