Creative Mode
Added in Patch 278.0
A fast and simple way of building.

Server admins can now activate Creative Mode for certain players. In Singleplayer you can activate it for yourself.

Commands[edit | edit source]

Use the following commands in order to activate Creative Mode.

  • cheat GiveCreativeMode or GCM to activate it for yourself.
  • cheat GiveCreativeModeToTarget or GCMT to toggle Creative Mode for the player you are targeting.
  • cheat GiveCreativeModeToPlayer <playerid> or GCMP to toggle Creative Mode for a player by their ID.
  • All three console commands act as a toggle - running them a second time will remove Creative Mode (all effects except gained engrams, which require the player log out and log back in to fully remove)

Features[edit | edit source]

Creative Mode gives a bunch of different abilities to the user:

  • removes weight restrictions (sets weight stat to 99999.9).
  • removes Crafting Requirements.
  • instant crafting of items.
  • flying (without the use of additional commands, check the section below for details).
  • unlocks all engrams.
  • grants infinitestats and godmode (you can still die to gigas and titans [note: after December 2018 update it appears creature attacks no longer register].
  • adds the Admin Blink Rifle to your inventory
  • You are no longer vulnerable to the Hurtme command, Destroy command, Kill command or the Admin Blink Rifle.

Flying[edit | edit source]

With Creative Mode, you can now toggle flying by double-tapping jump (default Space, A, Cross). You can also run (hold ⇧ Shift,LB,L2) to fly faster.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Does NOT make you invisible
  • You shouldn't give creative mode to players you don't trust
  • After removing Creative Mode from a player, the user will still have access to any gained engrams. To remove them, the user must log out and back in again (just like the GiveEngrams console command)
  • Currently you cannot create custom recipes without the materials required
  • With X you can immediately destroy misplaced structures so you can fix it (while in fly mode)
  • You can kill yourself with rockets.
  • You can kill yourself with Organic Polymer / Corrupted Nodule.
  • Players used to be able to kill you by headshotting you with a Pump-Action Shotgun (unknown if only on singleplayer), but this has been patched out prior to a recent update.
