The Console is opened by pressing the ~ key, and gives access to various commands from switching world gamemode type, to debug commands, to other creative options. Commands may require elevated permissions in order to use them, these commands are marked as being a GameMaster, Admin, or Moderator command.

Note, that about half of these are personal (ie. the player that executes it, is who it interacts with), these are mostly the ones changing things with the player, rather than envoirenment. If you need to execute on another player, using telnet 's RemoteExecution is needed, or alternatively, a mod that creates the RemoteEx request for you.

Note that 'Is Telnet' commands might differ from the above statement, and might be executable on their own, without RemoteExecution, but just using telnet

"Is telnet" means that they can be used through telnet, but also through direct consoleCommand.
