<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8" standalone="yes"?>
<settings version="10">
  <misc>
    <language>en-en</language>
    <!--Relative path to log folder-->
    <log_folder>Logs/</log_folder>

    <mods_configuration_file_relat ive_path>../</mods_configuration_file_relative_path>
    <!--Relative path to mods folder-->
    <mods_folder_relative_path>../Mods</mods_folder_relative_path>
  </misc>

  </network>
  <server>
    <!--How often (in minutes) server should do autosave-->
    <autosave_delay>5</autosave_delay>
    <!--How often server should do a backup of savegame (in minutes)-->
    <backup_save_delay>1440</backup_save_delay>
    <!--Comma-separated list of blacklisted users (gametag-names)-->
    <blacklist />
    <!--Description of this server.-->

    <players_max_count>32</players_max_count>
    <!--Is monster spawn enabled(1) or is it a pure PVP server(0). (0/1)-->
    <pve>1</pve>
    <!--Is PvP enabled at all. (0/1)-->
    <pvp>1</pvp>
    <!--Diameter of scope. Usually it 33 game coordinates. Bigger value is useless because player display size is usually limited to 25-to-15 game coords.-->
    <scope_distance>33</scope_distance>
    <!--Comma-separated list of whitelisted users (gametag-names)-->
    <white_list />
    <!--Is is the server open(0) or private(1)? (0/1)-->
    <white_list_enabled>0</white_list_enabled>
  </server>
</settings>

There is a guide on our wiki on how to setup a server.

http://wiki.atomictorch.com/VoidExpanse/Server_setup

I hope it helps!

As for config - you don't really need to edit anything actually. But you could change some settings if you'd like.
