How to disable creative menu and debug menu console commands in a SP game?


Recommended Posts

Does anyone know how to disable the ability to use the dm and cm commands within the console on yourself in a single player game?

I don't have the will power to ignore how easy it is to enable and just wreck the whole reason I'm playing. Why spend 15-20mins digging out the ground to make an underground base when I can just enable the creative menu then grab the super digger and then be done in less than 5. Then it doesn't stop there.

I've tried editing the serveradmin xml file but to no avail. I've also went through the console and removed myself from the admin list and the cm and dm commands still work. The game seems to consider myself an admin no matter what I do.

Any help or suggestions are welcome and appreciated.

Because it's to easy and makes the game boring.

 

If you disable it from the game options (as 7d2dMP said) or by editing an xml directly, what exactly does you prevent from reenabling it the same way?

SORRY!  I thought I was responding to the original author.  Ignore me.

When you create a new game or when you continue a game, go into the "Advanced" tab and disable the "Cheat Mode" option.

I forgot to mention that the cheat menu is already deactivated. Regardless of whether or not that is enabled in that startup screen, you can still open the console and type "cm" and the creative menu will be available.

Here's another example to illustrate: Say you're working on a base and you've made some wooden frames. Now you want to upgrade those frames, one way is to have enough wood for the two wood upgrades then have enough cobblestone to upgrade further then have some concrete to upgrade even further. Then you wait for the concrete to dry and then apply another layer of concrete and wait for it to dry, then you'll need enough forged steel to upgrade to steel. Or just press F1 then type "cm" then enter the creative menu then grab some steel blocks. And while I'm in the menu I might as well grab myself a level 6 steel pickaxe, level 6 steel shovel, level 6 sniper rifle, all the ammo I could need, etc, etc., etc.

 

So in a sense I would need to have enough will power to not open this menu, which if I'm being honest I don't, so therefore the game becomes almost pointless for me and I love this game. Just wish there was a way to disable it all together to curb any temptation.

 

It's very true that there isn't much to prevent me from reenabling through the means listed here but as long as it's not as easy and quick to enable.

Sorry for me, not being sorry for people with absolutely no self control and intentionally destroying their own game experience.

If i'd be mod in this forum i'd instantly ban everybody that complains about cheating possibilites because that makes the game boring. Because that's harming yourself.

 

I suggest you to play in creative mode anyway, since you obviously are not interested in elaborating your own progress and take any shortcut however possible.

 

And even if the game itself wouldn't provide such possibilites, there would be mods or 3rd-party-cheats to make that possible and you would use them also.

 

Open world games seem not to be the right type of game for you. Search for games that fit your needs instead.

I think you may be missing the point of this topic. I'm trying to disable the cheats so I can play the game how it was meant.

Thank you.

 

 

I was able to figure out a way for me to disable both the creative menu and debug menu. I found a way to modify the xml files for the game so I don't have access to either of these menus. If anyone is interested in the exact details of what to modify, just let me know.

 

In any case I want to thank everyone who took time out of there day to respond to this thread. To be honest I didn't think anyone would actually reply to it.
