Don't Starve Together is fun, but public servers attract trolls once in a while. Someone dies, they steal that player's stuff, and won't give it back.

I'm an admin on a server. I can easily ban them, but the stolen stuff disappears with them. I can rollback, but that's a bit overkill (10 players lose a day's work because of one troll).

I can execute basic console commands: c_give, c_spawn, c_move, c_save, c_rollback, c_regenerateworld, but can't install mods.

What command(s) can I execute to force trolls to drop their inventory (killing them is acceptable), before I kick/ban them?

    You should kill, revive, let him think it's a joke, kill, revive... and the loop goes on and on. – Jonathan Drapeau Jul 3 '15 at 12:35
  • And despawn him, too. That's fun. (deletes items, though) c_despawn(AllPlayers[number]) – Ealhad Jul 3 '15 at 12:37
  • If the game is designed this way… – o0'. Jul 4 '15 at 9:54

There is a full list of the commands on the wiki.

I think this one would to the job (killing him, hence dropping the precious items) : AllPlayers[number]:PushEvent('death')

number being, of course, the identifier of the troll, which you can determine from c_listallplayers().

  • I think this is supposed to be the correct answer, but the c_listallplayers acts weirdly for me. I run it, it gives me a number for each player, I kill player 2 and someone else dies. As a workaround, maybe there is a way to store player2 in a variable and check who I have? I tried using a c_move, but that's a bit intrusive. A way to print their name or omething would be nice. – Konerak Jul 6 '15 at 7:14
  • Weird indeed. The numbers given by the command should be the same as those in the scoreboard, are they ? – Ealhad Jul 6 '15 at 8:00

You can spawn something to kill him, grab all the stuff and then ban him. You get the stuff, the trolls get out of your server.

I am not really good with admin tools for Don't Starve Together though, so I can't post any commands for you, but just a simple idea.

  • I've tried that before, but spawning something that kills him sometimes is a risk for the others too. Once I spawned 20 pigs because the troll was a webber, that was fun - but if he had been smart, he could have just disconnected and left with all the stuff. – Konerak Jul 6 '15 at 7:16
