The Command Console is a debugging tool primarily used for game development. However, it can be accessed by the player and used to input various Console Commands adding a wider range of functionality to the game. Using the commands the player is able to retrieve game information and statistics in addition, but not limited to altering the game's settings, spawning items and controlling time. Commands are also available which can be used to control guest players when the game is running in multi-player. This allows the host player to kick or even ban other players that are abusive or being disruptive. Usage
There are two different keys that can be used to open the Command Console these are as follows:
press ~ for US keyboards. press ¬ for EU keyboards. To dispel any confusion, regardless of the keyboard layout, it is the key directly to the left of the 1 key.
press " for US keyboards. press @ for EU keyboards. Again to dispel any confusion, regardless of the keyboard layout, it is the key directly above the Right Shift and to the left of the Enter Key.
Console Commands Entering codes
Be careful when entering a code, each one is case sensitive; "a" is not the same as "A". Short-cuts are made up of only two letters and can be used in place of the full command. Not all commands have a short-cut. Command arguments presented in [square braces] are optional, however commands using <pointed braces> are not.
Current list taken from Alpha 8.8, Commands are as listed by typing help into the Command Console.
