A blank console screen

The console is an in-game tool in Redguard that gives you access to various commands. Among other things, these allow you to set flags which control the progress of the story, modify attributes of objects, add and remove items, and fast travel to various places. The console can be opened in-game or on the main menu using the F12 key. Use the up and down keys, as well as the page up and page down keys, to view the console's command history.

The most useful commands, which correspond to the actions mentioned above, are setflag, object, item, and load. All commands have a shortcut which can be used in place of the full name, and several require a subcommand to specify a more precise action, such as item add and item drop.

Useful Combinations[edit]

Toggle Collision[edit]

object player
object attr attr_reserved_collide=0 (Disable)
object attr attr_reserved_collide=15 (Enable)

This toggles collision for Cyrus, similar to the command tcl in other games. The main downside is that you can only walk horizontally; there is no way to increase or decrease vertical position without using the command at a different altitude. Also, jumping will freeze you in place until you disable the command.

Lock Object Position[edit]

(Select an object)
object attr attr_stop_x_move=1
object attr attr_stop_z_move=1
object attr attr_stop_y_rotate=1
(Use 0s instead to allow movement again)

This sequence of commands locks an object, usually an NPC or creature, at their current position. If you use the last command, rotation will be disabled as well. Locking the object's position can be useful for taking screenshots; it is not a very effective method of cheating. The best way to find an object to select is through the object closest command.

col0 (edit color) Cycles through 16 different colors for input text and the console information at the top. Default is 0 (black).
col1 (report color) Cycles through 16 different colors for output text. Default is 13 (green).

load l load MAP NUMBER[, MARKER][, ANGLE]

Loads the map with id MAP NUMBER at the given marker and angle. Map IDs and markers are listed below. An angle of 2048 equals 360 degrees, with 0 facing north and increasing values rotating counter-clockwise. MARKER and ANGLE default to 0 if not specified.

Use the getmapmarker command to travel to markers in the current map without loading screens.

  • The console often runs out of memory after so many commands, causing the game to freeze. ?
