Page Splitting?[edit source]

This page is getting long and a bit messy can we split it up to have more pages. Server Configuration and Console Commands can both have their own page? --SharpShot gif (talk) 22:33, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

I definitely agree. I'll work on splitting this up tomorrow evening. -- Willfe42 (talk) 23:32, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

Using the printcolors command I only see IDs 1-39. I also get no change when using 0 (table says 0-42). If there's no explanation for the wrong numbers I'd change them. Seb3sec (talk) 18:48, 10 September 2015 (UTC)

Greetings,
In /Console_Commands#SpawnSetupDino
Cheat SpawnSetupDino
while testing on the PS4 the DinoStats string only adds up to 73 total levels(max leveling after tame)of points into stats. for example you use it to summon a level 150 Jerboa with the string "MeleeDamageMultiplier=150" what you will get is a random stat lvl 150 jerboa tamed to 225 and leveled to 298 with only 73 levels of melee added. no further leveling is possible. and thus it is impossible to use this method to "custom create" a jerboa with 150 levels of breed-able melee stat. the Description currently states " Description: Spawns a fully set up dino with the specified saddle, level, and base stats " perhaps it should be changed to " Description: Spawns a fully set up dino with the specified saddle, Tamed at Level with random base stats , and preapplied levels to the selected stats up to 73 total levels. "
it should be noted as well, that when summoned the creature is at Max Exp and added levels less than the full 73 will remain to be applied by the players normally.

Should we use templates?[edit source]

Oh goodness, this table has gotten big! I had rearranged the columns once already when the table was much smaller, but if you guys decide to change my terrible layout it might take a bit of work. Should we instead use templates for each row, so that if you people decide to change it you'd only need to modify a single template? It might make the page source look a bit nicer too. --Higgs1 (talk) 02:29, 10 October 2015 (UTC)

I don't think a template would make it reasonable easier, as the paramteters of that template would be complicated and you had to escape the tables in the rows (you cannot write | or the template thinks it's the parameter-delimeter, instead you had to write {{!}}). Maybe the use of collapsable elements can help. And inserting some sections to divide the commands into groups like player-, creature-, tribe-, etc-related.--Cadaeib (talk) 10:12, 10 October 2015 (UTC)
Sectioning it sounds like a great idea. I'm about to add even more commands this week and this page is just going to be a huge mess until we get it into categories. I'm just being really lazy >.> Higgs1 (talk) 14:56, 2 November 2015 (UTC)

RCON column[edit source]

Hello! It's been a while since I've been here. Is there any reason for the RCON column? I was pretty sure I already added a column for it (Target). Higgs1 (talk) 15:20, 30 March 2016 (UTC)

Hi, the columns seem to be independant from each other. Do you mean the RCON-column is redundant because you can see from the Target-column if the command can be executed via RCOM?--Cadaeib (talk) 15:36, 30 March 2016 (UTC)
Yeah. I'm not too familiar with the Unreal Engine so I could be wrong, but that's how it works with other game engines (Notably the Source family, which RCON was originally written for). Higgs1 (talk) 22:03, 9 April 2016 (UTC)

Individual command pages?[edit source]

Hey, me again!

Took another long break from Ark, but since there are so many commands now that are difficult to explain, I wanted to suggest maybe moving each command to it's own page. Each page would have some standard format - a list of arguments, and each argument would have a data type and a description for what it does, and there would also be a description / explanation of the command in general. Then we'd use semantic / data querying extensions (whatever is available on this wiki, I forget) to grab that stuff and format it into a table just like it is now. This allows us to add additional information on the individual command pages that isn't displayed in the table - and additional links and stuff as well.

This is similar to my template idea above, but doesn't use templates because we have semantic data extensions now :)

What do you people think? --Higgs1 (talk) 20:47, 4 June 2016 (UTC)

Xbox Command logged Column?[edit source]

Should we add a column that states whether this command is displayed on the chat window if used on a multiplayer server on Xbox?--Zoe S17 (talk) 22:17, 21 December 2016 (UTC)

Not needed, there is a check box in the server settings that can be checked that enables or disables this. Scrubbanubnub (talk) 04:58, 25 March 2018 (UTC)

commands missing[edit source]

some of the console commands that still work like the addexperience command still work in ark and was on this page before this recent page change I don't know if it was just not add back into the page or something and I don't know if there was any other commands that still work that got left out of the new lay out. — Preceding unsigned comment added by NanashiNoname (talkcontribs) at 08:20, 14 July 2018 (UTC).

you are right i had forgetten to copy it over when i reorganized the content. It should be fixed now. Thanks for the find. Genie451 (talk) 13:34, 14 July 2018 (UTC)

cheat prefix needed in singleplayer?[edit source]

Could not find a way to add a topic, so this necro thread is closest to it... The following phrase in the intro needs to be confirmed "In single-player mode you neither need any cheat or admincheat before the command nor do you need to enable cheats." I have found that on my single player maps on PC, admincheat needs to be used for at least some of the commands. Disciplyne (talk)

To add a new topic there is a + in the navigation at the top of the page. You also could add a new section by inserting a Heading Level 2.
Which command(s)? I never had any trouble without the prefix, but I also didn't use all of the commands yet. --Flachdachs (talk) 09:56, 10 November 2018 (UTC)

Another Tier in GiveDinoSet and being able to hold on to any of the Desert Titan's back horns[edit source]

I discovered a tier in the GiveDinoSet command: Kaiju: 4 T.Rexes with tek Saddles and 2 Yutyrannus, I don't think anyone knows about it.

This may be irrelevant but another thing that I think I'm the only one who knows about it is: The Feature to hold on to the Desert Titan to avoid being thrown off by it's barrel roll, Downside, it will still attack the player with lightning and tail slaps.
