So, you just learned the basics of building, huh? Well, you might have realized many games utilize more than just the variations of blocks available; they use commands! Wanna know how they work? Great!
Reading the Commands List
Commands, at their core, are a string of text put into chat in the form of "!cmd <name> <input>". You'll find there is a vast amount of commands to use. It's recommended that you experiment with as many commands as you can to become comfortable with their use, but the list is lengthy, so if you type "!cmds" into the chat, you will access the entire list! Once you do you'll see this:
|A||Close Button||Closes the commands dialog.|
|B||Search Bar||Find any command by searching the name. Required rank is still shown.|
|C||Command List & Minimum Perm Level Necessary||Indicates what commands each permission level utilizes, higher ranks give access to more commands down the list. Ex: An admin has access to the commands from the Visitor, Builder, and Admin ranks, but stops with Owner rank.|
|D||Scroll Bar||Scroll the page.|
Fun Fact: If you want to move the command list away from the center of the screen, you can do that! Select the white rectangle labelled "List of Commands" and drag it to anywhere you like to move the entire list!
Starting to Use Commands
Now that you have learned to to maneuver through the command list, you still might feel overwhelmed. That's okay! To synthesize the information, tasks you might want to try out are broken down here with an example to illustrate the process.
Building with Others
Do you want to let other people build with you? Great! To begin, go into the command list and search up "perm." You'll see that under the "Admin" list, there a command called "!perm (plr) [rank]". In the space for "(plr)," type in a person's name or a person's User Id. In the space for "[rank]," assign a rank (Only works for ranks under your own) of either Visitor, Builder, or Admin.
!perm (plr) [rank] → !perm Totallynotagriefer [rank] → !perm Totallynotagriefer Admin
!perm (plr) [rank] → !perm 20751690 [rank] → !perm 20751690 Admin
Once you give others the ability to build, wait for them to join.
Teleporters are a fascinating piece of technology that lets you touch a block to traverse across places. If you want to travel to a different world, use the !warp command
The command is listed under "!tele"
To use the command, point to a block beforehand (This is the teleporter entrance), say the command, then click onto a new block (This is the teleporter exit).
If you're successful, you'll be able to do this
Making Kill Blocks
If you ever have to make lava or acid, use this command over a block that person is standing on!
The command is listed as "!kill"
Point to a block, then say the command, to turn the block your mouse is on into a kill block.
… … …
Examples or a demonstration are not necessary.
Wanna make a PvP sword fighting game? Great! The command is listed as "!gear (gearId)". In the space for "(gearId)," go to the Roblox Catalog, find the gear you want to add in, and copy-paste its ID
!gear (gearID) → !gear 125013769
Now everyone has access to a sword! Be prepared to show visitors your utter lack of sword skill, enjoy!
Speeding Up the Process
At this point, you may have even tried to utilize much more commands than the ones listed here. Also at this point you might have had to retype the same command over and over again. Well, instead of spamming the chat, use ezcommands, which are designed to quickly input the commands repeatedly! Unfortunately, the functionality of an ezcommand change with each command, but the form of ezcommands are "!ezCmdName Input." Add an "ez" before the CmdName to get the ezcommand variant, the rest stays the same!
!kill → !ezkill
!tele → !eztele
