I got a few questions regarding mod powers from some of the new mini-mods. I figured I'd make a short, basic explanation of some simple tips on some of the things. I'm not going to go into detail or talk about "advanced" commands; only basics here.
If you haven't already, set the tilde key ( ~ ) on for console command in the advanced settings. Hitting the tilde key will show the console which will allow you to use ulx commands.
First, type ulx help into the console. This will display a list of commands that you have available to you.
You can also do other commands in the console by typing ulx before the command. Such as, ulx menu. This will bring up the same menu you get when you type !menu in the chat box. Opening the menu through ulx won't show it in the chat box either. With that knowledge, you can bind several commands through ulx. If you want to bind a key for the menu without having it show in the chat, go into the console and type, bind h "ulx menu" Of course it doesn't have to be the letter h, that is just acting as a placeholder.
If you need to ban someone, the simplest way of doing it is to either go into the menu and click on the bans tab, or type !fban into chat. If you go to the bans tab, you will see a button on the bottom left labelled "add ban" If you click that, you'll see the list of players currently in-game. You can click on their name and select how long to ban for and the reason. If they are not in the server then you need to ban them through their steam id. To do this, click on ban by STEAMID.
The best way to acquire steam ids is to check the 'status' of the server each round. Type status into the console to see the list of players and their steam ids alongside of their username. You can also bind this the same way explained before. Bind it to a key and check the status at the beginning of each round.
Most of the other things you can learn, such as shortcuts to certain commands, can all be learned in the ulx if you type ulx help as mentioned before.
As I already said, I only wanted to keep this very basic for new mini-mods. But other members are obviously free to post their own tips/suggestions as well.
