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

Use the -l flag to make the command run on left click, -r on right click (default). Set the per-player cooldown before the command can be used again using --cooldown (in seconds). Set the server-wide cooldown in seconds using --gcooldown. --delay will wait the specified amount in ticks before executing the command. --permissions will set the command to require specific permissions (separate multiple with commas). --n will only let the player run the command that number of times. Use -o to temporarily execute the command as an op and -p to run the command as the clicking player instead of the server. To give the player temporary permissions instead of op, use /npc command permissions. Set the cost of each click with /npc command cost/expcost/itemcost. Commands can be executed one by one instead of all at once by using /npc command sequential or /npc command cycle.
