Console “Help” Commands for Alpha 20.2 (Feb 2022) 7DTD
 
 
A list of Console Commands (CC) for various debug/player actions. Some commands may have additional parameters that will need to be inputted with the original command. Example: To make the rain stop; CC – weather; Type of weather – rain; variable amount – 0; enter. The complete CC path you would type after opening the console would look like this: weather rain 0
 
The number 0 is a complete stop of action for the “rain” in command “weather”.
 
 
The most recent Console Command Guide I could find was done in 2017. I had already made this list for personal use, but when I saw how outdated the last guide was I decided to go ahead and create an updated one. Credit for the portion labeled “Detailed Help”** belongs to: SaltyMuffin | https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1248160017 – [steamcommunity.com]  | He gives credit to user DEADication for his 04/14/2016 post in the official 7 Days to Die Forum.
 
 
**Note: If that list is not available in this Guide it will be added in later after updating with additional info & verifying existing info OR it will be available in a second guide after updating & verifying. I’d like to add screenshot examples of the command input pathing for easier clarification.
 
 
Please be aware there may be typos in my Command List. I rechecked each line, but mistakes do happen. For that reason YOU will need to type help after opening console and scroll to find desired command to check that the command spelling is correct.
 
If you find that a command does not work please comment below with the command and command path used so that this information can be relayed to TFP Devs through the bug report menu. I do not work for, nor have any direct contact with any FP team member, therefor have no control over how the commands work or don’t work. I only provided known information accessible to anyone who already has the game downloaded.
 
 
Feedback, Suggestions, & Comments are Welcomed & Appreciated, Thank You!
