GMSummon Command

cheat GMSummon <Entity ID> <Creature Level>

This command spawns the creature with the specified entity ID and level in front of your character. Note that you must put quotation marks around the entity ID.

Argument Information

The syntax for this Ark admin command is as follows:

Entity ID Type: Entity ID The entity ID of the creature you wish to spawn, with quotation marks, e.g. "MegaRex_Character_BP_C"
Creature Level Type: Number The level of the creature you wish to spawn. Because this level does not include the taming bonus, you will need to divide your desired level by 1.5 for the creature to have it. For the creature to spawn at level 15, you would enter 10 (because the 50% taming bonus is 5, and 10 + 5 is 15)
