Here we want to show you, how to install Mods on your dedicated Space Engineers server.

Platforms

The game can be played on a PC or on an Xbox Console where both have different criteria regarding the settings of the servers as well as for the mods. Just click on the platform you and your friends are playing to directly get the right instructions, on how to install mods on your server.

  • Then look up for the parameter Mod IDs

  • Then insert the Mod IDs of the mods you want to use, every ID needs to be entered in a separate line.

Information.png Please be aware that some mods will require a New world to be generated for them to be Installed/Uninstalled.
  • Save the changes
  • Start your server


Your server then will download the mod files automatically from steam, that's why the first start of the server might take a bit longer then usually.

Xbox only / Crossplay

Since it is possible that friends with an Xbox are able to join the server but the mods on Steam cannot be installed on the console, there is the possibility to add mods from Mod.io


Information.png Please note that these settings are only relevant if you have an Xbox server or if the Crossplay Option is active on your server.
  • Stop the server
  • Select a suitable mod from Mod.io
  • access the general setting of your server via the web interface
