7 Days to Die Console Commands

Console Commands

Console mode is a debugging tool, adding a wide range of functionality to the game.

The tilde (~) key by default toggles the console screen open and closed. Some of these commands can be used through the server control panel.

Note: Codes are case sensitive; “a” is not the same as “A”. Shortcuts are only 2 letters and can be used in place of the command. Command arguments in [square braces]are optional, while commands in are not.

Command / Shortcut / Effect

settime [#] st – Sets the current world time.

gameover go – Ends a round/match in deathmatch/horde mode.

toggle_blood_off NA – Toggles the blood off.

toggle_blood_on NA – Toggles the blood on.

debugmenu [on/off] dm – Toggles debug menu (for developers)

spawnentity [player-id] [entity-id] se – Ability to spawn entities near a player.

Example: “se 1807 20” player-id = 0 if you are alone.

kick [player] [reason] NA – Disconnects a player from the server.

ban [player] [reason] NA – Permanently disconnects a player from the server.

listents le – Lists entities.

listplayers lp – Lists players.

enablescopes on/off es – Toggles on/off debug scopes.

listthreads lt – Lists threads.

(*) Hour notation is military time * 1000 (1000 = 1 hour).
eg. 0 = Day 1, 16h; 8000 = Day 2, 00h; 16000 = Day 2, 8h; 24000 = Day 2, 12h

Change to day (Day 1, 8am): “st 16000”
View the [player-id]>: “lp”

Cheat Mode

Cheat Mode is an option found in the game settings on the Continue Game or Start New Game screen and is located under the Misc tab. It allows you to control whether players will have access to the Creative Menu in game. If enabled, players will be able to select and place any item available from the Creative Menu.

1. In order to open the Creative Menu press the U key.

2. To enable and disable God mode press the Q key.

3. To enable and disable Flying press the H key. While Flying, press Space to go up and C to go down. You can fly faster by pressing and holding Shift.

4. Fly Mode hasn’t been made a part of console, just PC only at the moment.
