Ingame text box commands

The ingame chat box allows you to control the game by certain commands. The text box is also used for chatting in multiplayer mode. It is a fast and easy way to edit your game according to your wishes. Press the T Button on your keyboard to open the text box. You can edit money, slopes, snow, ropeways and more with this method. It will replace the Ingame Lua Editor and is more easy to use. Type in /help to get a list of all available commands. Use the clearChat command to clear the text chat.

Fix Accounting
/fixAccounting

WRS employs a double-entry bookkeeping system for the eco systems (roughly the same as in real-life companies, but a bit simplified of course). Sometimes it can happen that the double-entries don't fit together, i.e. that the left hand side of the balance sheet is not the same as the right-hand side. /fixAccounting fixes any issues like this.

Clear eco system
/clearEcoSystem

Use this if you want to release your savegame as map. You will keep all vehicles, ropeways, slopes, etc. but the eco system will be prepared for a new player:

  • Any debts/loans will be paid back.
  • Credit limit will be set back to € 200,000
  • Accounting system will be fixed
  • The player's account balance (cash) will be set to € 150,000

We highly recommend to call this command before sharing your map. If you want your players to have more money, you can use /setMoney or /addMoney afterwards.
