Scripting API Documentation

From Space Engineers Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

In Update 01.063, In-game Programming was introduced, allowing Engineers to make their own scripts to be compiled and ran by the Programmable Block. There is a limited API available to would-be coders which is described and documented here.

An alternative documentation is available to experienced c# developers here, as explained in this forum post here. This documentation is made using Sandcastle, and is in the same format as MSDN reference. At the moment, it is a work in progress and lacks any description of what anything does. If you don't know what a "decompiled DLL" is, that documentation is likely unhelpful.

For an up-to-date as of 2020-09-26 API listing and basic tutorials, see Malware's Development Kit for Space Engineers.
