/alias detailedEdit

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 aliasesEdit

Using /alias without any parameters will enlist all existing aliases

Create an aliasEdit

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 removeEdit

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

Known bugsEdit

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.


  • "/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 detailedEdit

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

combatspelleffects true false Turns the combat spell effects graphics on or off
developer true false Enables/disables developer mode.
displayFloatingNames true false Turns floating names on or off
enableCameraCollision true false Enables / disables the camera's ability to clip through objects.
environmentsystem true false This no longer controls weather and sky. This simply controls the "invisible light" that causes correct shadows on cliffs and hill sides. This should never be disabled. You'll want to use environmentsystemEffects for this now.
environmentSystemEffects true false Enables / disables fog and sky animation for performance. Turns the environment system on or off (such as weather effects like rain and snow)
flyOnFall true false Enables / disables gliding or flying when falling.
maxframerate <framerate> Set the maximum allowed framerate
modesty true false Removes undergarments
muteEmotes true false Enables / disables the sound effects for emotes
useLoadingScreen true false Enables / disables the loading screen that appears when players use travel gates. Disabling this option can make porting quicker, as you don't have to wait for all the graphics to load before walking/running/flying anywhere.
useLowestLevelShader true false

/window detailedEdit

window FPSWindow Displays the Frames-Per-Second window
window lagWindow Displays the lag window
