Space Engineers | Take server out of Experimental Mode

Experimental Mode is on by default in the Game and the Server files. 

If you do not want the server on the Experimental mode please do the following:

1. Stop your server in the Game panel. 
2. Look through the latest logs in log viewer and locate the following lines

2019-03-05 03:32:51.095 - Thread:   1 ->     Experimental mode: Yes
2019-03-05 03:32:51.096 - Thread:   1 ->     Experimental mode reason: ExperimentalMode, MaxPlayers, MaxFloatingObjects, EnableWolfs, EnableSpiders, EnableSubgridDamage

3. Go to File manager\Instance\Saves\Your World Name (Pingperfect is default)\Sandbox.sbc

4. In the Sandbox.sbc file you can find a line that looks like this <ExperimentalMode>true</ExperimentalMode>, change true to false
5. Change all the values listed as the Experimental mode reason. For example Experimental mode reason: EnableSpiders means you have Spiders enabled and you need to disable them for experimental mode to be switched off
6. Save the file
7. Start the server.
