Server Commands

From Discovery Wiki
Jump to navigationJump to search

The main Discovery Freelancer RP 24/7 server uses FLHook to extend the Freelancer experience. FLHook server commands are commands that you can enter into the chat window to perform a specific action. Use it just like chatting to someone, and use the slash at the beginning, "/", to signify a server command. Commands that require parameters can be called without parameters to display help for the command. If you encounter any problems with the commands listed below please report them on the forums.

Command System Features

Feature Description
Command filtering Any chat text starting with '/' or '.' will not be repeated to private or system chat (except '//' *sigh*). This means you can safely use /drawcash when you're in system chat without accidentally telling everybody your password.
Command echoing Most user commands (i.e. starting with /) are echoed back to your console so you can see what you typed. The exceptions to this are /local, /system, /target and their short variants.


Command Description
/help Displays all currently available server commands. Aliases are /h and /?.
/refresh Using this on a ship will reset the login timestamps for all ships on an account, saving time when logging your ships to prevent them being activity wiped.
/restart <setting> Sends you to the main planet of the area you typed in the setting of, gives you a fully outfitted ship and gives you an appropriate reputation. This command also resets the characters cash and any other attributes, so be sure not to load it up with credits or equipment until after you use the command.
/showrestarts Shows all restart templates.
/renameme <new name> <tag rename password> Changes the name of the character. Costs 2 million credits. You will be kicked immediately after executing this command. When you log back in, the change will have taken place. This command can only be used once every seven days for any one character.

There is a 5 minute grace period after you execute the command where you can use it again, which can be used in the event you misspelled the new character name. This grace usage will cost another 2 million credits.

If the tag is protected with a rename password using /settagpass, it should be entered in <tag rename password> - this is not the master password for the tag.

The character name length is limited to 23 characters.

/set movecharcode <movecharcode> Creates a code to allow the movement of the character this command was used with to another account. This code is valid for one transfer only.
/movechar <charname> <movecharcode> Transfers <charname> to the account of the character currently being used. Costs 2,000,000.
/stuck Moves your ship 10m so 'un-stick' you from bases. Only works when your speed is low.
/droprep Lowers your rep with the faction you have an affiliation with to 0.59 bars, costs 350,000, you must re-log for changes to take effect and to use the command again. Keep in mind if another faction next in line has enough positive rep you will then receive that tag.
/autobuy <param> [on|off] Allows you to specify which Items should be purchased automatically each time this character lands. Options <param>: info, missiles, mines, torps, cd, cm, munition, cloak, bb, all
/coin Flips a coin and reports the result to all ships within 6km.

Jump Devices

The Jump Drive, first detailed in Some explanation of Jumpdrive, Cloaking and Survey module allows ships to jump between systems in Sirius.

Command Description
/survey This command will begin the space survey required to determine coordinates to jump to where your ship is now. So, if you surveyed in Champagne F6, you would receive the coordinates required to jump to approximately F6 in Champagne. In order to survey you must have a Survey Module of the required class, along with the required fuel in your hold and your ship must provide the necessary power.
/setcoords This command sets the coordinates for the destination of your jump and is used on the ship with a Jump Drive mounted. You must use it before using the jump command or your ship will jump blindly. You can use this command before or after initiating charging, although if you initiate charging first, the console will warn you that you are yet to set coordinates, but will still begin the charging process.
/charge This will begin the jump drive charging on your ship. You must have sufficient power and fuel available to achieve charge.
/jump This command activates the ship's charged jump drive and flings it through whatever gap there is in the space you've just torn a hole in, probably towards your coordinates. If you didn't enter coordinates, you're going somewhere else, but where that is or what you'll end up as, is improbably uncertain.

Docking Modules

The Docking Module, first detailed in Tutorial: Docking Modules allows ships to dock with carrier-able ships. Small player ships may dock with any ship that is carrying docking modules. Only one ship may be carried in a docking module and the standard module supports ships that have holds of 275 units or smaller.

Command Description
/dock To dock with another ship, the player must target the docking module carrier and either type /dock or press F3 (the dock button). The docking module carrier will be notified of the docking request and must then authorize the request prior to the ship docking.
/allowdock This command authorises the request of a ship to dock to yours.
/listdocked A docking module carrier may see which ships are docked by using this command.
/jettisonship <shipname> This command, albeit surprisingly, allows you to force out / expel / eject / jettison a certain ship, identified in the <shipname> field.

Cloaking Devices

The Cloaking Device, detailed in the Player Base Guide, allows a ship equipped with this module to turn itself invisible.

Command Description
/cloak Activate or deactivate your cloaking device. It is also possible to use a key, which you can set in:

Main Menu -> Options -> Controls -> Multiplayer -> Cloak On/Off

/disruptor Activate your Cloak Disruptor. It is also possible to use a key, which you can set in:

Main Menu -> Options -> Controls -> Multiplayer -> Cloak Disruptor On/Off

Faction Tags

This system allows factions to protect their faction tag and prevent other players from making characters with the tag without having a password. This system can only protect tags that precede a character name. See Player Owned Faction Tags for more information.

Command Description
/maketag <tag> <master password> <description> Use this command to create a new tag. Creating a new tag costs 50 million credits.

The <tag> parameter is a 3-23 letter tag. The <master password> is the password used to drop the faction tag (in order to change the master password) or to set the rename password. The <description> is intended to provide an indication of the group that owns tag, i.e. their name and officiality status.

/droptag <tag> <master password> Use this command to delete a tag. The <tag> and <master password> parameters should be the same as used in the /maketag command.

Dropping the tag and re-creating it is the only way to change the master password.

/settagpass <tag> <master password> <rename password> This command is used to set or clear the rename password. The <tag> and <master password> parameters should be the same as used in the /maketag command.

If this password is set then people must use /renameme to create a ship name starting with this tag. If not, the tag is owned, but unprotected.
