known to work:
remoteex cl=P 'marker add name=N pos=X,Y,Z w wd expire=T'
places a waypoint on the in-game map for the player that is ClientID "P"
w for Waypoint (optional, currently bugged. all plotted coordinates show as waypoints)
wd = remove when player gets close (not tested, may be default)
P = clientID
N = a string with no spaces
X/Y/Z = the coordinates, whole numbers ONLY
T = time in seconds till the mark dissapears (Note: can't use wd and Expire in the same mark)
For all valid RemoteEx commands (ConsoleCommands)
Note, that Console Commands with spaces must be inside quotationmarks to work.
saveandexit[edit | edit source]
Saves the game and exits - optionally after a given timeout.
NOTE: Issuing this command automatically cancels a scheduled 'stoppf' command!
When using a timeout some warning messages will be broadcasted before actual exiting.
saveandexit [<timeout in minutes: max=15>]
- when a timeout is given the exit will be delayed accordingly
saveandexit cancel - cancels a scheduled exit
saveandexit - shows a scheduled exit
Examples: saveandexit 10

- say 'text with blanks' -> send a message to all players
- say f:<faction-token> 'text with blanks' -> send a message to a specific faction
- say p:<client-id> 'text with blanks' -> send a message to a specific player
(use 'plys' to get client ids)
Examples: say f:Abc 'We deleted the problematic SV'
say p:37 'I restored your lost HV'

can also do things like
stoppf[edit | edit source]
Stops a specific or all playfield servers - optionally after a given timeout.
NOTE: Issuing this command automatically cancels a scheduled 'saveandexit'!
When using a timeout some warning messages will be broadcasted before actual stopping.
Remaining connected players will be disconnected, they can immediately reconnect.
stoppf <playfield name>|all [<timeout in minutes: max=15>]
- stops the server that provides the playfield (or all servers)
- when a timeout is given the stop will be delayed accordingly
Note: Put playfield name in single quotes if it contains spaces
stoppf <playfield name> kill
- immediately kills the server process that provides the given playfield
Use only if a normal stop didn't work (may result in not saving latest data)
stoppf cancel - cancels a scheduled server stop
stoppf - shows a scheduled stop - if any
Examples: stoppf Ningues
note: currently unknown how to create a global scheduled stop of all servers with a timeout value (syntax unknown for "all" option)
