You can now use all the commands it shows you. E.g.: “addallitems”

Note: Not all commands work, specially if not passing the right format of possible parameters. It could even crash your game, so try to think about which commands you will use


  1. can you use it to spawn logs? i cant see a spawn command for it and spawnfalling tree is slow lol

    • I really don’t know about that. But you can use cheat engine as well to spam logs like crazy.

      For doing so, pick up 2 logs, scan for 2, drop one, scan next for 1, pick 2nd one up again, scan next for 2, repeat til you only have 2 values left. Then add that 2 Addresses to the table and freeze their values by ticking the boxes. Then you can either drop them unlimited, or if you enter the inventory while they are frozen, it will spam drop logs 😀

      • ok great ill give it a try thanks, is there away to force tame that lady… keeps running away even though i have nothing out and keeping distance lol damn pain 😛

        • There is a “addvirginia” command or so, but not sure if thats what it does.

          I suggest to just “tame” her the normal way. Just unequip your weapon when you see her and don’t approach her. Doing that multiple times and she should bring you some loot and you may see the Backpack symbol then which means she is yours now ^^ You can give her a GPS tracker then.

          • Thanks! And one more thing, is there away to force respawn trees? not seeing one unless im blind haha

            also thanks this is awsome

          • i really don’t know, i just tested a few commands, just thought it’s good to share, so modders can start “abusing” it ^^

            But feel free to let others know here if you find out something

  2. Hey i wanted to give you a update there is a commend Virginiasentement *spelling might be wrong haha* use it with 100 at end and you have a instant friend

    • i think it’s possible ye, it shows you a full list of commands and there are some about other players. But not sure about the right parameters, or if it would show you which parameters it expects

      • Maybe, the other player can use just the same method as well while on your Server, let me know if thats the case
