Space Engineers - Experimental Mode

Dear forum members,
for some time now we have been creating and maintaining new ways to help game server admins with questions and problems as quickly as possible, e.g. our Guides section and the Nitrado Community Discord.

Therefore, we inform you that the Nitrado Forum will be closed on March 31, 2023. We are consolidating our community support to our Discord channel, which is faster and more efficient. We have also seen incredible growth in our community due to the hard work of our moderators and our bots. We are confident that this move will ensure that we provide the best support possible for our users.

Thank you to all members for your continued use of the forum!

Assistance with all questions concerning your Nitrado service can now be found in these spots:

  • Ok, so I just installed Space Engineers on one of our Nitrado servers and when I try to connect I get a notice that I am unable to connect due to the server being in 'Experimental Mode'. Looking at the exhaustive list of settings I am at a loss for where I can disable the Experimental mode.

    Also if anyone has a good guide on all of the settings, it would be great if you could share it here.

    Thank you

  • hey CharlieMike,

    I am a new customer for space eng servers as well and had the same issue. After conversations with the helpdesk they advised me to do this. But I still cannot seem to get rid of the experimental issue for I think something is enabled otherwise. Hey-ho. Experimental seems more flexible

    1. Stop server and locate sandbox.sbc in your save folder and open it.

    2. Change Experimental Mode to False
    3. PhysicsIterations 0
    4. EnableIngameScripts

    5. EnableSpectator False
    6. PermanentDeath False

    Save, reboot.
