Commands are advanced functions activated by typing certain strings of text.


When typing a command through a chat box (world, area or group chat), you need to insert an @ or / sign before the command. Example: @teleport Nelson/Seattle, or /teleport Nelson/Stratford. Note that command parameters are separated by forward slashes. All duration parameters must be expressed in seconds.
