    I don't know, if it belongs in here. If not, please move it.

    I have noticed that i can't change the blck by the numbers in the item bar. if I press the button "2", because there is a Block I need, it would not be selected. the only selectable square is the button "1", so that I have to put every single block I want to use in square "1".

    Could you Fix this?

    Thanks

    Are there any updates on this? The current server has allot more options that I am not entiryly sure of.

    One problem I am experiencing is that my faction members do not auto rejoin the faction on respawn. I am..was the founder and when I re-spawned access denied to everything and I cannot join my own faction.
    Is this something todo with the reset ownership settings?

    Hi,

    I have looked over the dedicated server page, but when it comes to commercial hosts, the methods listed above (The GUI server config), isn't always or even ever a possibility. What I'm curious about is if there is documentation for the dedicated-server.cfg or sandbox.sbc file for cases when these files must be hand edited in a text editor. If there is documentation for these files, could someone please point me in the correct direction? These files are constructed sensibly I find, so I could probably expect tags I don't know to correspond similarly to and have the same function as those listed in the dedicated servers GUI options under the wiki's "global settings" page, but to be honest, this would be pure guesswork and speculation on my part, so while it might work, I really was hoping to find some good documentation before "winging it".

    When the Dedicated Server is running, it's a stream of text in a DOS Box on the Desktop. I know that I can press Ctrl+C to Save and Close the Server. Are there any other keyboard commands I can input? Is there a keyboard command to Save without closing? Is there a keyboard command to change the time of day on the server?

    hey there,

    free for all, small healthchecker which will restart the server process in 1 Minute in case of a normal crash:


    powershell script

    se_healthcheck.ps1

    Code:
    $app = "D:\Steam\steamapps\common\SpaceEngineers\DedicatedServer64\SpaceEngineersDedicated.exe"
    $arguments = "-console"
    $procse = "SpaceEngineersDedicated"
    
    $p = get-process $procse
    $msg = "Space Engineers Process not found, Starting Server Process"
    $ok = "Process found, doing nothing"
    $time = Get-Date -Format g
    
    if($p -eq $null)
    {
          Start-Process $app $arguments
    	  $time
    	  $msg
    	  $time >> ".\HealthLog.txt"
    	  $msg >> ".\HealthLog.txt"
    }
    else
    {
    	  $time
    	  $ok
    	  $time >> ".\HealthLog.txt"
              $ok >> ".\HealthLog.txt"
    }
    
    #Write to file does not work when called by task planner

    you can just bind this to your server by opening the task planner and create a task which is executed every day and after that every minute
    you will need as program/script:
    C:\Windows\System32\WindowsPowerShell\v1.0\powershell.exe
    and as argument
    D:\se_tools\se_healthcheck.ps1 >> D:\se_tools\Checklog.Txt

    the >> is herefor to get a logfile out of the healtchecker and see when the server has restarted (this can be disabled by just deleting in the argument line >> and everything after this)

    Have I missed something, I host a dedicated server on Gameservers and after today's update it is running in experimental mode, is this how it is supposed to be now, why can I not run in non experimental mode?

    I'm having trouble launching a dedicated server from my computer with the dedicated server interface. At first the file was missing. I found it and every time I try and start it, it goes to start pending then stopped. It doesn't seem to want to run.. Have I missed something? I'm not sure how to get a dedicated server to run on any machine here at my residence.

    I am running the dedicated server as a service. Sometimes its running, i am still logged in and playing but others cannot find the game in the server list. Then i have to manually restart the server. But i am not always online and of course this happens right after i go sleeping then the server for others is not available, but its still running.
    I have changed settings in Maintenance do make AutoRestart every 2 hours, but this didnt work, its only shutting down but not doing a restart. I dont know how to fix that. Any suggestions ?
