Are the System Commands considered "cheating" by EAC? As in will using them get me banned from EAC servers?
HellMinion88 Jul 17, 2021 @ 3:49am 
when using the spawnself command the listings for item names can be found in the 7 days to die folder under config and select the items file (best opened with notepad)

some basics would be

giveself resourcescrapironbundle
giveself toolforgecrucible
giveself vehicleMotorcycleChassis

hoppe this helps

Will using the console make me not be able to work on, and earn achievements? I wanna change my fov, but don't want to risk breaking cheevos.
Butch RowdyRuff Jan 3, 2019 @ 7:17pm 
You know what? Now I only need the commands to summon zombies, for now, I can hack the system. >:)
Hamez the Horrible  [author] Jan 3, 2019 @ 5:59am 
Frankly, this list is probably out of date now. It was not mine to begin with, but I shared it here in the event it was more convenient for some people. Your best bet is to check the 7DtD Forums to see if an updated list has been posted there.
jokerace45 Dec 30, 2018 @ 1:42pm 
Is this still up to date and revelent ?
DoubleD Sep 29, 2018 @ 4:27am 
is there any way to get alot of thesame items by using giveself?

i tried giveself wood100 giveself wood 100 but it doesn't work.
wiki tells me it is possible ....
Butch RowdyRuff Sep 13, 2018 @ 3:03pm 
Can you please tell me all the skill names that the console accepts? Because it no longer accepts most of them even though I type them perfectly.
VSM - BlueVeee Mar 12, 2018 @ 11:29am
