Console/Don't Starve Together Commands

From Don't Starve Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
Hound.png Please note: This page only contains console commands for Don't Starve Together. For a list of console commands for the base game (or its DLCs), refer to Console Commands.

The Command Console is enabled by default. If for whatever reason it is not, you first need to do some tweaking in your settings.ini of your save. This can be found in the "DoNotStarveTogether" folder, located in the following paths :

 Windows, Mac: <Documents>\Klei\DoNotStarveTogether\client.ini

Linux:         ~/.klei/DoNotStarve/client.ini

Locate the settings.ini and open it with Notepad or other text editors. Locate the [MISC] section, and make sure you are having ENABLECONSOLE = true under it. If it appears to be false, change and save it.

Then to open the console while in game by pressing "~" by default on English keyboards. This can be changed at any time in the controls menu.


  • You have to re-enter almost every command after loading a world.
  • Lua supports variable numbers of arguments to functions, so if, for example, you only want to spawn one of a prefab, you can leave out the "amount": "c_spawn('beefalo')".
  • If you are not the host (or it's a dedicated server that you're an admin for), most commands need to be run remotely. Pressing ctrl with the console open switches to remote command mode. A few commands (such as revealing the map) are still done locally.

Many Don't Starve Commands are still available in DST, so you can also read it.

Simple commands

  • Spawn prefab

Improved DebugSpawn("prefab"), spawns amount of selected "prefab" under the mouse cursor.

  • Give Item

Spawns amount of selected "prefab" in your inventory. Only works with Backpacks and Items that can be stored in the inventory.

  • Scenario

Apply a scenario script to the selection and run it.

  • Health

Sets your health to selected percentage. Note: Use fractional numbers 0.90 = 90%.

  • Sanity

Sets your sanity to selected percentage. Note: Use fractional numbers 0.90 = 90%.

  • Hunger

Sets your hunger to selected percentage. Note: Use fractional numbers 0.90 = 90%.

  • Moisture

Sets your wetness to selected percentage. Note: Use fractional numbers 0.90 = 90%.

  • Temperature

Sets your temperature to selected percentage. Note: Use fractional numbers 0.90 = 90%.

  • God Mode

It won't drain SanityHunger or Health when attacked anymore. You cannot change your stats with commands while in godmode. If you are dead, revives you(Reviving via c_godmode() doesn't put you in godmode once revived). To deactivate God Mode use the command again.

  • Super God Mode

Same as God Mode but also sets all your stats to full, even when turning it off. Similar to c_godmode(), it revives you as well(Reviving via c_supergodmode() doesn't put you in godmode once revived).To deactivate God Mode use the command again.

  • Set bonus running speed

Standard bonus runspeed is 1. 2 makes you twice as fast and with 20 or more you can easily walk through walls and "over" water.

There's many other commands, but they're hard to use and not particularly useful outside of select situations.

Player commands

Note: Most of them will not work if you are a client and not an admin sending a remote control ( switching to remote mode with Ctrl ) .

  • Action Prediction

Enabled by default, setting it to "false" will exchange rubberbanding for choppiness, but is often helpful for combat. This only does anything if executed by a client, hosts do not have prediction.

  • Creative mode

You can craft everything.

  • Maximum health

Change the Maximum Health of your character

  • Maximum sanity

Change the Maximum Sanity of your character

  • Maximum hunger

Change the Maximum Hunger of your character

  • Pause hunger

Your character won't starve anymore.

  • Damage Multiplier
GetPlayer().components.combat.damagemultiplier = value

Changes the Damage Multiplier of your character.

  • Werebeaver

Turn Woodie into the Werebeaver. Change the .01 to 1 if you want to get out of Werebeaver form.

Other Player Commands

Note: Many of the following commands that are normally applied to your player, such as c_godmode() or c_sethealth(1), can be applied to other players by using c_select(AllPlayers[number]) first. So you will have the need for a playerlist to get the player numbers:

  • List all players with username and player number.
  • Get a certain player

AllPlayers[1] will get ThePlayer if you are the host. Other players should have numbers as shown on the scoreboard (In certain situations, the number may be wrong. You can be more precise by using c_listallplayers() first to see the username and character for each player number.. Most of ThePlayer commands can be used with AllPlayers[number] instead of ThePlayer.

  • Apply a command to all players
for k,v in pairs(AllPlayers) do command end

Replace command with another command, using "v" instead of AllPlayers[number]. For example, "for k,v in pairs(AllPlayers) do c_move(v) end" will move all players to the mouse position.

  • Move another player

Moves the player to the cursor position.

  • Kill a player

Kills the player.

  • Resurrect a player

Resurrects the player.

  • Teleport to a player

Teleports you to to the player corresponding to the player number from c_listallplayers().

  • Drop a player's inventory items

Drop everything from player's inventory corresponding to the player number from c_listallplayers()

  • Despawn a player's character (returns to selection screen for repicking)

This will delete their items, so it is recommended that you kill them first to drop their items, or let then DropEverthing() as shown above.

As of June 25, 2016, a new set of commands are introduced to call players. You can call a player by their player name instead of player number UserToPlayer('PlayerName'). For example, to kill a player called 'PlayerA' with player number 5, instead of doing:


This requires you to first run c_listallplayers() and figure out player number.

you can simply do this:


World commands


After pressing enter, it teleports you to the first numerical instance of the named prefab. If multiple iterations of the prefab exist, a list of the entity numbers will be displayed in the console log, and each subsequent execution of the same command will transport the player from entity to entity in the order they were generated in the world.

  • Delete Item Under Mouse

After pressing enter, it deletes the item under your mouse. Use the second command on dedicated servers, the first command will not work.

  • Reveal Map
minimap = TheSim:FindFirstEntityWithTag("mini­map")
TheWorld.minimap.MiniMap:ShowArea (0,0,0,10000)                                                                                                                                                                                                                              Try command below for DST                                                                                                                                                    local w,h = TheWorld.Map:GetSize();for _,v in pairs(AllPlayers) do for x=-w*4,w*4,35 do for y=-h*4,h*4,35 do v.player_classified.MapExplorer:RevealArea(x,0,y) end end end

This is a local-only command and will not work if you are a client.

  • Skip day
  • Skip time*30*x)

Skips x days. Change x to skip more days or parts of days (e.g. 16*30*4.5 to skip 4.5 days) WARNING: Too big values may freeze the game. (Depending on computer speed)

  • Skip time units and update

Skips X time units and performs the "LongUpdate" function on world objects

Note: There are 30 time units per segment. To skip a whole day one can either use LongUpdate(480) or use multiplicative values such as LongUpdate(X*16*30) or LongUpdate(X*TUNING.TOTAL_DAY_TIME), with X=days to skip.

  • Skip phase

Skips the current phase.

  • Set segments
TheWorld:PushEvent("ms_setclocksegs", {day=x,dusk=y,night=z})

  • Measure Distance

Prints the distance between player and object under mouse to the console log (displayed with Ctrl + L by default).

Network/Server Commands

  • Kick/Ban a player

Note that this can be accomplished more easily through the scoreboard. The userid can be obtained from the AllPlayers table. Once you've found the number of the player you want to kick (as shown above in the Other Player Commands section), you can use AllPlayers[#].userid.


[1] (KU_aabbccdd) Player1 <wolfgang>

[2] (KU_AABBCCDD) Player2 <wolfgang>

if Player2 is going to be banned from the server, console command can be written as




  • Temporarily Ban a player

Player can be banned for a short period of time. userid stands for the KU id of the player to be banned. Once it is obtained it can be put in this format:

TheNet:BanForTime("KU_aabbccdd", 120).

This will ban the player with specified KU id for 120 seconds. This command should be entered to both servers if server has multi-level option (caves and overworld).

  • Connect to a server
c_connect("IP address", port, "password")

If connecting conventionally doesn't work, it is possible to connect directly to an IP address. By default, the port is 10999. If there is no password, you can leave that part out: c_connect("", 10999)

Regenerates specified items in a world.

  • Regenerate a world shard

Regenerates specified items in a shard.

  • Save the server

Forces the server to save immediately (servers normally autosave whenever night finishes).

  • Shut down the server
c_shutdown( true / false)

true will save the game, false will exit without saving. c_shutdown() is the same as c_shutdown(true).

  • Roll back the server

Rolls back a server by the given number of saves. c_rollback() will roll it back by one, while c_rollback(3) will roll it back three.

  • Enable/Disable new player joining
TheNet:SetAllowIncomingConnections( true / false )

Setting it to true is the default behavior (people can join). Setting it to false prevents anyone from joining.

  • Make a server announcement (for dedicated server console)

This allows you to announce server shutdowns/restarts so players do not just get disconnected without warning.

Miscellaneous Commands

  • Clear the morgue

Clears the morgue. Requires closing and reopening the game for changes to be seen.

  • Count the number of something in the entire world, and return the value to your character

Send the command using remote. This returns the total number of something in the entire world, and returns the value as though your character is talking.

  • Count the number of something in your world

When sending the command using local, it returns the number of prefabs in your active area only. When sending the command using remote, it returns the number of prefabs in the world; the result is printed on the server console for dedicated server.

  • Spawn Wormhole
  1. Sadly no one line command, follow steps instead.
  2. Spawn wormhole 1 using this command: worm1 = c_spawn("wormhole")
  3. Spawn wormhole 2 using this command: worm2 = c_spawn("wormhole")
  4. Create connections forth: worm1.components.teleporter.targetTeleporter = worm2
  5. And back: worm2.components.teleporter.targetTeleporter = worm1
