/alias detailed[edit]

The /alias slash command is used to create alternative slash commands for existing ones. You can:

  • Shorten an existing slash command for less typing
  • automate actions you want to perform, such as your own emote texts

Enlist existing aliases[edit]

Using /alias without any parameters will enlist all existing aliases

Create an alias[edit]

The alias call is pretty simple: /alias <name> <command> You can define whatever you want on the name, though the command is a bit more complicated.

  • If you want to execute a slash command, keep in mind that you must not add the slash infront of the command.
  • add a blank behind the command, else the alias will not work

How to remove[edit]

Removing is pretty simple. Just type /alias <name> and the specified alias is removed.

Known bugs[edit]

Since most players are crashing out of istaria on a regular basis, be aware that newly created aliases are not stored when you crash. If you want to create aliases you should safely log out of the game and log back in to store them permanently.

Examples[edit]

  • "/alias w who " shortens the /who slash command to /w. Also works with parameters, i.e. /w <player>
  • "/alias grt em greets everyone and blinks." Do an emote when calling /grt
  • "/alias grp em smiles at %t% and bows deeply." Do an emote and use a parameter in it

/setpref detailed[edit]

You can change game preferences by using the "/setpref" command such as: "/setpref environmentsystem true". These commands can be run in-game from any chat window.
