Commands not listed here

There are quite a few commands that are not listed here, mainly for reasons of maintenance order (the wiki isn't updated all that often, but the actual commands list is updated regularly.)
To see the list of commands on your current version of Citizens, simply type /npc help in-game. You can use /npc help 2 to view page 2, and so on (switch 2 to any page number).

To see information on a specific command, you can use /npc help create in-game. Change the "create" to any other command name (the example will show help for the /npc create command).

Some commands have documentation elsewhere. Such as:

  • npc skin has documentation here: Skins

There are also many commands that are added by other traits. see Characters
