Don't Starve Cheats/ Console Commands
By V
This guide will teach you how to use enable and use the command console.
Enabling the command console
To enable the command console you must go to the following location and edit the settings.
Documents > Klei > DoNotStarve and open settings.
When notepad opens eddit ENABLECONSOLE = false to ENABLECONSOLE = true.
(this can be found at the bottom in the [MISC] section)

Opening the console
To open and close the console open Don't Starve, load your world and press the ~ key.
(it should be left to the 1 key and under Esc)
When you type in the command press Enter to execute code.
To remove the additional info that comes with the console press Ctrl+L.
Console in game.

Debug Spawn is used to spawn objects.
To use the command type DebugSpawn("?") in the console.
Instead of ? type in the prefab name of the object.
Instead of the in game name you need to type in the prefab name.
(in game and prefab name are not the same for some objects but the in game name works for the most time)
To find all of the prefab names open your steam folder >SteamApps>common>dont_starve>data>scripts>prefabs.
Here you will find all the objects you can spawn.
Example :
-to spawn a Treeguard you need to type :

Spawning multiple objects at once
To do this you will need to use :
for x = 1, ! do DebugSpawn("?") end

!-number of objects you want to spawn
?- prefab name of the object you want to spawn

-to spawn 20 meat you need to type:

for x = 1, 20 do DebugSpawn("meat") end

The object will spawn wherever your arrow is pointing.

As you can see you can use the console to spawn Unimplemented Characters.
Revealing the complete map
Enter following code: minimap = TheSim:FindFirstEntityWithTag("minimap") and execute the code after that type in : minimap.MiniMap:ShowArea(0,0,0,10000) and execute that code.

This command also works for caves.
Skipping days
To skip one day type in: GetClock():MakeNextDay()
To skip more days type in: for x = 1, ! do GetClock():MakeNextDay() end
Replace ! with the number of days you want to skip.
Skiping more days will cause a minor freeze and will affect your hunger/sanity.

Setting max hunger/sanity
For health type in: GetPlayer()!)
Replace ! with the max number of health you want to have.
(You will need to get hit or eat something that adds health for to work)

For sanity type in: GetPlayer().components.sanity:SetMax(!)
Replace ! with the max number of sanity you want to have.
(Sanity changes instantly)
Pausing hunger
To pause hunger type in: GetPlayer().components.hunger:Pause(true)
With this command your hunger will never go down and you dont have to worry about the point of the game.
Tips and warnings
I do not recommend that you use these commands to often.They take away a lot of fun experiance and the game will start to get boring very fast.
Instead use these commands when you are in a tight spot and dont want to lose your world or want to do some testing in another save.
Finally , You can not get banned for using this.

a little tip in using the revealing the map console command, it is written here (after the ":")
with one space and then the line wich targets the minimap and excecutes the command, do not get that space as well, just the line starting from "minimap"
