What is Torch?
Torch is the successor to SE Server Extender and gives server admins the tools they need to keep their Space Engineers servers running smoothly. It features a user interface with live management tools and a plugin system so you can run your server exactly how you'd like. Torch is still in early development so there may be bugs and incomplete features.
- WPF-based user interface
- Chat: interact with the game chat and run commands without having to join the game.
- Entity manager: realtime modification of ingame entities such as stopping grids and changing block settings without having to join the game
- Organized, easy to use configuration editor
- Extensible using the Torch plugin system

- Unzip the Torch release into its own directory and run the executable. It will automatically download the SE DS and generate the other necessary files.
- If you already have a DS installed you can unzip the Torch files into the folder that contains the DedicatedServer64 folder.
To build Torch you must first have a complete SE Dedicated installation somewhere. Before you open the solution, run the Setup batch file and enter the path of that installation's DedicatedServer64 folder. The script will make a symlink to that folder so the Torch solution can find the DLL references it needs.
