SourceForts Console commands

SourceForts is really a great mod for Half-Life 2 multiplayer, featuring a construction phase with blocks and panels before a combat phase. But the wiki has died a long time ago, and I decided to copy a save of the console commands here, as it’s not findable anymore.

Half Life 2 Deathmatch Commands

For a more complete list of console commands for Half-Life 2, see the HL2World wiki. Some of the most common and useful commands are shown below.

Useful Commands

  • sv_cheats Default : 0 – Server setting that turns cheat mode on or off.
  • sv_lan Default : 0Server setting, value of 0 is an internet server, 1 is a LAN server.
  • ip Default : localhostServer setting, needs to be changed to global IP address on servers utilizing routed Internet connections.

Using Cheat Codes

The following commands require that the server have cheats enabled.

  • impulse 101 cmd – Gives you one of every weapon. Needs cheats
  • impulse 200 cmd – Removes your HUD good for taking screenshots. Needs cheats
  • impulse 203 cmd – Removes an entity, used for removing SourceForts blocks. Needs cheats Warning: Using this on players will crash your server

Spawning Blocks

If the cheat mode is turned on players can give themselves blocks, without using a blockspawner. This adds to the blueteams block limit, so it is considered a cheat.

*give prop_block_2d_1x2
*give prop_block_2d_2x3
*give prop_block_2d_1x5
*give prop_block_3d_1x2
*give prop_block_3d_1x1
