Chat Commands

SML adds a system allowing you to add your own chat commands.


You might think "wtf is this?"…​ well, this is the class you need inherit from for each chat command you want to implement in BP.

This classs contains some attributes you need to set to tell SML what name your command f.e. has.

  • Only Usable by Player

    this allows you to make sure only players can execute the command.

  • Min Number Of Arguments

    If the number of arguments used to execute the command is lower than this value, the command wont get executed.

  • Mod Id

    This needs to be your Mod Id, it allows SML to differentiate between the different Mods.

    Make sure the mod id is valid! If it’s not, it will crash.

  • Command Name

    This is finally the name of your command you want to add.

  • Aliases

    This is a list alternative Command Names for your command. You will be able to use them to call the same command.

  • Usage

    This is the discription of your command how it should get used by the player.

To give the command now some functionallity, you just need to override the Execute Command function and add your own logic to it.

The Function gets the command sender, the command arguments and the used alias as function parameters and returns if something and what in the execution didn’t work.

After that you need to register your command. You can do that by simply adding it to the M Chat Commands array of your InitMod.


This class represents a chat command sender and allows you to get abstract information about the sender.

A sender could be f.e. the player.


This subsystem allows you to register a chat command instance manually, to get registered commands to executed a command and most importantly, it provides the ParsePlayerName function wich allows you to get the AFGPlayerController based on the player name. Used to parse the player name passed as command argument. It also allows you to parse selectors like @all and @self.
