Frequently Asked Questions

A: You do not install the Admin Pack, it is just a zip file containing a bunch of pdf files and useful resources from this guide to help you use commands on your server and access the item lists and classnames much easier.

Q: How do I summon a dinosaur of a certain level?

A: You can summon a dinosaur of a certain level using this command:cheat SpawnDino <blueprintPath> <spawnDistance> <spawn-Y-offset> <Z-offset> <DinoLevel> and changing <DinoLevel> to your desired level. Find this command in the table above for a pdf contaning the dino BP list.
