Operator-only commands

These commands are usable by ops both from the server console as well as through the chat window when prefixed by the command character (forward slash, i.e., "/help" instead of "help"). Optional arguments appear in [square brackets].

Note that players do not normally see op commands being entered, but they are broadcast to the other ops on the server at the time.
  • help - Shows a list of available server commands.
  • ? - An alias for the help command.
  • list - Shows the names of all currently-connected players
  • give playername data-value : Hex [number] - Spawns number (defaults to 1) of the item defined with [damage value] by data-value at playername 's location.
  • tp playername targetplayer - Teleports player playername to targetplayer 's location
  • say freetext - Broadcasts freetext to all players on the server (in bright pink letters!)
  • time set|add number - Set or increment (add to) the world time. number is an integer between 0 and 24000, inclusive, where 0 is dawn, 6000 midday, 12000 dusk and 18000 midnight (i.e. the clock is bisected; left side is night, right side is day). Note: You can also subtract from the current time by using the 'add X' modifier, by using a negative value (i.e. 'time add -6000' would change midnight to dusk)
