Cheats and Commands list:
(taken from Flexible Survival Wiki)
Being a text-based game, the player’s actions must be typed in as commands. A player’s basic movement and search options are listed in the command line. Typically, movement is performed according to compass directions, up or down, or in or out. Directional movement can be done using abbreviations (e.g. NW for northwest or D for down). A player’s search and navigation options will be listed as well (in parentheses).
The search/travel commands are as follows:
- Navigate(nav) – Nav <location> takes you to a location you have previously visited. If no location is given, it will give you a list of locations you can navigate to.
- Scavenge(scav) – Searching for food/water in the nearby city.
- Explore– Looks around your current location for any other areas of note. This is how you open up new places to visit. It is also possible to encounter events while exploring. If an area has its own Hunting Area, it may have its own set of events unique to that zone rather than the general ones for the Outside area. While exploring, there is also a chance of encountering a random monster specific to the hunting area.
- Hunt– Hunt <location/event/monster> will have to search the immediate area for your intended target. Hunting a monster increases your chance to find it, if it’s in the area, but you may come across a different monster before you are able to track down your prey, necessitating you fight it instead and try again on your next turn.
The odds of success while searching can be increased by various feats and is influenced by Perception. Use of any of these commands comes with the risk of encountering a random monster in the area.
The items found by players can be interacted with in various ways, including:
- Use– Eats edible items and drinks drinkable items. Equips items that are weapons/equipment. Otherwise ‘uses’ general items, such as med kits.
- Eatand Drink – Consume edible/potable items.
- Getor Take – Attempts to pick up an item.
- Get Allor Take All – Picks up everything you can grab in the room.
- Inventory(Inv) – Lists all items in your inventory. If the item is equipped, it has a (wielded) tag next to it. Other tags may appear in specific situations.
- Drop– Puts an item on the ground.
- Dropall– Drops all items from inventory. Can be used to specify all items of one type.
- Junk/Trash– Trashes an item from your inventory. Warning, this is permanent (except for undo).
- Junkall / Trashall– Trashes all of one item type from your inventory. Warning, this is permanent (except for undo).
- Microwave– Microwaves an item when it’s possible.
Item and NPC Commands
There are numerous other people (NPCs) in the game that the player can meet and interact with. Some of these commands are general and can be used on both objects and people, while others are obviously specific only to people.
- Look– Look at a given person/item/room. This provides description and may also provide clues on what you can do with him/her/it. Look watch allows to you see how much time remains in the game as well as what time of day it is. Look me will let you look yourself over, getting both your appearance and general status.
- Smell– Yes, you can smell stuff. While this is mainly for game flavor, a few smells contain clues. Including NPCs, be sure to take a whiff.)
- Talk– Talk to a given NPC. This is one of the two main ways to start interacting with NPCs. Conversations may contain clues, quests, hints or false leads, or may just provide colorful background information.
- Fuck– Fuck <name> will have you offer to have sex with a given NPC. This is the other main way to interact with NPCs. Many of the characters out there are at least partially infected and are feeling the lustful effects just like the player is. Many are quite willing to have some fun with a friendly fellow, though some may ask for a favor first or may infect the player in doing so.
- Give– Will give an item to a character, but only if that character wants it. Example: ‘Give food to Rod’
- Help– Brings up the in-game help.
- Stats– Lists the following: Strength/Dexterity/Stamina/Charisma/Perception/Intelligence/Humanity/Morale/HP/Libido/Hunger/Thirst/Level/XP/Feats.
- Look me– Look at yourself, seeing your stats as well as your appearance.
- View status– Prints the information visible in the status bar at the top of the screen including sanity, libido, amount of currency and time until rescue to make this information more readily accessible to those using screen reading software.
- Iwannacheat– Brings up the cheat menu from which a player can gain additional feats (including Automatic survival), control Vor/ub settings, and perform several other tasks. Note that using many options in the cheat menu has a negative effect on the player’s score.
- Undo– Undoes all effects of the last command entered. All commands, including looking at yourself or failed commands are counted. The undo history can go back about 8 steps at most.
- save– Saves the game to a save file, note that these save files are incompatible across different versions of the game, for saving across multiple versions use of Savewords is recommended.
- Restore– Loads a given save file.
- rest– Rests for one turn. Some hp is restored provided the player isn’t playing in noheal mode where only healing items such as medkits restore hp.
- Givein– Give in to your infection and allow it to start taking over. Lose 20 humanity/turn. Can be aborted by using the ‘givein’ command again.
- Play on– Turn off the rescue, essentially giving the game unlimited time. Be warned, this cannot be undone, so survival endings will be impossible to obtain.
- End now– Cause the end of the game to occur early. This does not work in unlimited time modes, such as when play on has been used.
- Wait off/on– Toggles whether the game will continue to provide text or use more requests for keyboard input to continue (more).
- Clear off/on– Toggles whether the game will clear the screen periodically. Some clears are required and won’t be turned off.
- Auto Attack– This allows you to adjust your auto attack preference if you have the Instinctive Combat feat.
One of the biggest complaints about playing the popular and award-winning survival game day is that many players simply cannot be sure when their character will get injured or when it would be a good time to scavenge for the next health or energy source. These are the kinds of “flexible survival cheats” that can make a significant difference in how effective your game is, and how long you can survive in the game itself.
Some of the most effective “flexible” cheats include healing from the sun’s rays, a player who has slept in a bed the entire time the match has been running, or healing yourself while not in combat, etc. These are simple things, but they can help you tremendously when it comes time for some real survival-related planning.
If you have been playing DayZ for any length of time at all, you’ve probably run into some problems with the amount of ammo and other supplies that you have left. In addition to the fact that most of your equipment is required by the game’s rules to be at this point, it can be frustrating trying to scavenge for food, water, and health care while dealing with the dwindling amount of ammo in your pistol and the need to keep the rest of your equipment charged up. While these issues can become very frustrating, there is actually an effective way to deal with them.
Many of the more advanced players will know about cheats for games like DayZ and other similar games that allow the use of hacks to bypass the game’s rules. For example, if a player wants to find a way to heal without having to enter combat, they can do so by entering in “cheat cheats” to enable the use of items in combat that aren’t normally available to the player. The same is true for healing, with the player entering in “cheat heals” to enable the use of an item that doesn’t normally heal the player.
A new player may find these kinds of tricks to be too complex or complicated to work but using some simple “flexible” cheats can really help get you on your way to a better game experience. This is because these types of cheats can be used to get around certain issues with the game’s mechanics that can make the game a bit less fun for those that are more technically minded.
Remember, though, that while these are good “flexible” cheats that can really help your survival game out, they should never be used for “gold farming.” As you’ll soon find out, there are other ways to get that much-needed extra cash during your gameplay.
