We have begun migration of most wikis to our new host, Amazon Web Services. All but the top 100 wikis are in read-only mode until the migration is complete. Estimated completion: TBD -- Update: Fri 10/20 11pm UTC - We have encountered some unexpected issues. Our staff is working around the clock to complete this process as quickly as possible. Thank you for your patience.

- Admin Spectator camera (and an extra password you can use for anyone to access spectator mode) + spectator-controls UI
To use the admin spectator, any admin can just use:
cheat enablespectator stopspectating will always take you out of spectator.
Note that being a Spectator destroys your own player character, you will respawn when leaving spectator mode.
To use non-admin spectator, the server must specify a spectator password like so in the GameUserSettings.ini:
or via commandline ?SpectatorPassword=mypassword
Then any client can use this console command:
requestspectator mypassword and stopspectating
Note that the game will remember your spectating state even after you restore save data and/or reconnect, so that you can permanently stay in spectator mode on a server if you wish.
Some spectator controls:
Ctrl-N to display a list of players to jump to Left click to attach to the player in front of you Left Click and Right Click to cycle attached player Spacebar to detach Shift to Fly Fast Ctrl to Fly Slow Mousewheel to adjust fly speed Shift + f1-f10 to save camera positions, and f1-f10 to teleport to them
