SE crash with error: Attempted to read or write protected memory

This error and crash is related to your world for Space Engieners. It can be caused by many things in your world. We have created this article to advise on the common occurances. 

- Floating objects / ships / asteroids at extreme distances away. For this, please run a clean up of your world using SE Toolbox  Remove any and all objects that are at extreme distances. We advise anything at or outside of 1000km, and for best performance outside of 500km. If you have ships that you use at those distances, you can use the tool to move the objects nearer. 

- Space Engineers Server Extender. Turning this off can make your server stable again and stop the crash happening. 

- Turning off auto save. 

- Try restoring a backup

- Try removing or reverting any changes that were done when the crash started happening 

- Starting a new map in all occurances will fix the issue. You can then blueprint / copy over your ships / stations from the old world to the new.
