ARK: Survival Evolved Admin Commands


How do I use Admin Commands in ARK: Survival Evolved?
Note: This is a work in progress (not all commands have been released yet)
Here's how you can use them!

Logging in as Admin
Press Tab, or whatever you have bound your console key to and type 

enablecheats <password> 
example = enablecheats pass123 

From here you can enter commands.

Whitelisting an Admin
This allows you to use commands without needing to log in as Admin.

Create a file in the directory \ShooterGame\Saved\ called AllowedCheaterSteamIDs.txt
It should look like this \ShooterGame\Saved\AllowedCheaterSteamIDs.txt
Note: On our control panel this is located in the 'Configuration Files' icon


From here, list on each line the Steam64 ID's you wish to authorise for cheat commands, these users will be able to cheat without logging in as Admin.
You can convert your Steam64 ID here - https://steamid.io/
