This admin command will add or remove a player from the admin list. When adding a player to the admin list, you need to specify a permission level. A permission level is a number between 0 and 1000 that determines what permissions a player has - 1000 is the lowest (no permissions) and 0 is the highest (full admin permissions). By default, commands like admin, and shutdown require a permission level of 0 to use - and kick, and ban require a permission level of 1. Use the 'cp list' command to see what commands are assigned to each permission level.
The syntax for the admin command is as follows:
admin ['add' / 'remove' / 'list'] [steam id / player name / entity id] [permission level]
This command has the following arguments:
|'add' / 'remove' / 'list'||Specify 'add' (without quotes) here if you wish to add a player to the admin list. Specify 'remove' (without quotes) here if you wish to remove a player from the admin list. Specify 'list' (without quotes) to view all players and permission levels on the admin list.|
|Steam ID / Player Name / Entity ID||The steam ID, entity ID, or name of the player you wish to add or remove from the admin list. List entity IDs with the 'listplayerids' command.|
|Permission Level||Only required if adding a player to the admin list - a number between 0 and 1000. 0 is the 'highest' permission level, meaning full access to all commands. 1000 is the lowest. Use the 'cp' command to change what commands different permission levels have access to.|
