    As the title says. I have built a hull out of light armor and now want to make it in a heavy armor version. Is there an easy way of doing this or will i just have to do it all again?

    you can load the world in toolbox and then edit that ship by changing all the light armor blocks to heavy

    Before installing SEToolbox, make sure you quit out of Space Engineers, and quit out of Steam. This is always a good idea before installing or updating SEToolbox. SEToolbox is usually updated by Midspace if a change at Keen is going to break SEToolbox.

    I would suggest only altering backup copies of game saves unless you're really comfortable with what you're doing. SEToolbox will load an entire world into a list of objects: grids, asteroids, planets, loose items, players, etc. If it's a very busy world, it might take a while to load. You simply have to click the name of your ship, then look in the menu under "convert" I think.

    Here's a link to an older how-to video. There have been some changes but they're easy to figure out.

    Bumping this old thread seeing that devs are working on survival items. I Believe this needs to be native to SE with a new tool of some sort where you can add the resources and select a block for an upgrade.
