Useful Console Commands

This page is not complete and is still a work-in-progress!
Feel free to contribute but I must ask that you follow the styling format that has already been used :)

Finding commands

If you need a command but don't remember its full name, you can use find [text] command. It will show a full list of available commands, variables and descriptions that matches your request. You can search for any kind of collection of symbols, words and etc.

Server commands

Some commands are only designed to be used through the server console but can be used via a client with admin if prefixed with "sv", eg, the say command that broadcasts a message in chat from the server can be only be used by the client by doing sv say

Some commands have different functionalities if they are prefixed with "sv", eg, the quit command that normally closes the client can be prefixed with "sv" to save and close the server by doing sv quit

Deleting assets/prefabs from the server

You may find that some entities you cannot regularly use ent kill on to remove them after they've spawned.
You can, however, use the del command followed by the entity's/asset's path. For instance, if you want to delete the banditcamp airwolf vendor (for some reason?) you can use del assets/prefabs/npc/bandit/shopkeepers/bandit_conversationalist.prefab

You can also do similar if you want to remove all bears from the server del assets/prefabs/npc/bear/bear_full.prefab

Finding asset/prefab paths

If you look at the entity you want to find the path of and use the console command debug.lookingat you will get the path returned to you in F1 console.
First use console.clear, then use debug.lookingat on the entity you want the path of, lastly use console.copy to copy the path.
Pasting your clipboard elsewhere will make it easier to extract the path from what you copied from console

You can also take a look at Corrosionhour's prefab list
