Review: Myself and a few friends wanted to play space engineers together. I have never dealt with this game before nor have I used the system they had in place to sort out mods before. So it was all new and took a few hours to figure out and get sorted. I got all the mods and configs sorted and started up the server, there was around an hour or so of waiting time for the server to actually get online. (New system so I had no reason to suspect this shouldn't be the case, although it did seem odd) I load into the server and no mods nor config loaded in, this was irritating due to the wait time. I went back through the settings and looked for issues I could see any so I just restarted the server and waited for it to load again. This took over 2 hours... I started to google see if I could find out if others had issues with these wait times, I found a few forums saying wait times of 20/30 mins, not 2/3 hours. So I figured there were some issues. Not having experience with this sort of system before I had no base to go by so I presumed I was doing something wrong. I sent in a ticket to get some help, help responded quickly and hope was rising, I was told my mods were not correctly added to the server, So they did that for me and I expected that was it! Ill is on the server that night, but the continued to have ridiculous wait times (hours) and I was getting really sick of waiting, but due to thinking it was going to work, I did so anyway. Hours later finally server is up and yet again nothing worked! It was getting real late at this point so I quickly reinstalled the game and got the mods loaded up, and left the server overnight. Hoping it would be up and running the next day. I check it and yet again no change. I started to have doubts about the system they had in place at this point nothing was working. I started being more direct in the ticket I submitted as I wanted answers as to why this isn't working and why it's taking hours to get into the server and nothing ever changes. It hit the 24-hour mark, I was pretty much done! One of the staff members replied to my ticket saying it's your mod list, something is causing conflict and that's why the load times are taking hours and then not working. So I gave it one last chance, and I worked through most of the mods (keep in mind I only had 35 installed) this still took a few hours and then loading times still took a few hours!! It ended errored and I was fed up with waiting! It was a horrible experience! The worst part is they are either lying to save themselves the embarrassment the system is broken or they just don't know their system is broken. I rented a second server from another hosting site. I was amazed to see how much settings and files they are missing, I am no expert with this sort of stuff but I am 100% positive my modpack had nothing to do with the wait times, crashes and errors. Not to mind there config is missing around 70% of the settings. It took about an 90 mins to sort out the new server, with the exact same mod list and with zero issues!! The server restarts and loads up within 5 minutes. I wasted 30+ hours of my life messing around with a broken system that does not work! While being led on by staff! After this experience I am going stay well away from this crowd, I can only speak for my exsperience with them but if they are missing so meny settings for this game it is likely they have other servers with similar issues!
