Another method of controlling your server is with administration and client commands. Below you'll find a list of all currently known commands. This list will be updated as the game changes and evolves. A complete list of Item and Creature ID's is provided here: Item & Creature ID's - Ark: Survival Evolved
In order to access these commands, you will need to be playing the game logged onto your server. Then just press Tab and a small console window will appear along the bottom of the screen.
