Creative Mode
Added in
Patch 278.0
A fast and simple way of building.

Server admins can now activate Creative Mode for certain players. In Singleplayer you can activate Creative Mode for yourself.


Use the following commands in order to activate Creative Mode.

  • cheat GiveCreativeMode or GCM to activate it for yourself.
  • cheat GiveCreativeModeToTarget or GCMT to toggle Creative Mode for the player you are targeting.
  • cheat GiveCreativeModeToPlayer <playerid> or GCMP to toggle Creative Mode for a player by their ID.
  • All three console commands act as a toggle - running them a second time will remove Creative Mode (all effects except gained engrams, which require the player log out and log back in, or die to fully remove)


Creative Mode gives a bunch of different abilities to the user:

  • Removes weight restrictions (sets weight stat to 99999.9).
  • Removes Crafting Requirements.
  • Instant crafting of items.
  • Flying (without the use of additional commands, check the section below for details).
  • Unlocks all engrams.
  • Grants infinite stats and godmode [note: after December 2018 update it appears creature attacks no longer register].
  • Adds the Admin Blink Rifle to your inventory
  • You are no longer vulnerable to the Hurtme command, Destroy command, Kill command or the Admin Blink Rifle.
  • You are able to move objects with the Admin Blink Rifle. (unconfirmed)
  • You are able to become creatures, click on the creatures with the Admin Blink Rifle to become them. (unconfirmed)


With Creative Mode, you can now toggle flying by double-tapping jump (default Space, A, Cross). You can also slow down (hold ⇧ Shift,LB,L2) while flying.


  • Does NOT make you invisible
  • If you are stuck in creative after relog, just force kick yourself to remove it.
  • You shouldn't give creative mode to players you don't trust
  • After removing Creative Mode from a player, the user will still have access to any gained engrams. To remove them, the user must log out and back in again (just like the GiveEngrams console command)
  • Currently you cannot create custom recipes without the materials required
  • With G you can immediately destroy misplaced structures so you can fix it (while in fly mode)
  • You can kill yourself with rockets.
  • You can kill yourself with Organic Polymer / Corrupted Nodule.
  • Players used to be able to kill you by headshotting you with a Pump-Action Shotgun (unknown if only on singleplayer), but this has been patched out prior to a recent update.
  • In previous patches of the game, you were still able to die to giganotosaurus and titanosaurus
  • You can die by flying too high ( over the diamond in the obelisk), and you don't get your body back, or a line showing where it is.
