What is the proper teleport command in Skyrim?

  • How does the coc command work? When I type in for example coc Whiterun, it works. But when I type in coc Dawnstar, nothing happens. Did I miss anything here?

    Also, how do I enter names with multiple words?

    Why not use the map to fast travel to Whiterun? Does this command work when fast traveling is not possible?

    And it causes no time to pass.

    Well, I'm using it for locations I haven't discovered yet.

    For most console commands, when entering an argument with multiple words, you can use double quotes. e.g. "deadly aim"

  • There are two main console commands for quick teleport:

    • coc (Center-on-Cell) expects one argument (the cell name) and teleports you there. Obviously, "Whiterun" is a cell, while "Dawnstar" isn't. This is for named (mostly interior) cells, and expects the name as defined in the Creation Kit. The UESP lists those - where known - as "Console Location Code(s)" in their location descriptions (see: overview of the Skyrim locations).
    • cow (Center-on-World) expects three arguments: The world name (as defined in the Creation Kit) and the X- and Y-coordinate of the cell in question. Tip for orientation: the highest point in Skyrim is in the worldspace "Tamriel", along with most of Skyrim, at the coordinates 13, -13, so you can get there using cow Tamriel 13 -13. The UESP lists those as the exterior location coordinates, where known and applicable.

    Are you sure you have to reload from an earlier save? In FO:NV, you just had to save, quit, and reload to re-enable achievements. Bethesda may have considered that a bug and fixed it with Skyrim, though

    @DaveMcClelland: They "fixed" it.

    "earlier save" as in, before you entered any console commands?

    @SimonVerbeke: Yes. Potentially even before you *opened* the console, but I couldn't verify it either way. People report slightly different sightings, but it wouldn't be the first time with Bethesda that a bugfix introduces even more strange behaviour ... See the "Steam Achievements not working?" thread on the official forums for all the different problems people have with them.

    @MartinSojka: I can confirm that simply *opening* the console does *not* stop you from getting achievements: I *regularly* open the console on accident and I've gotten plenty of achievements after those times.

    @JoachimSauer: Well, at least that one was just a rumour then. :) Anyway, achievements and console are a topic for a different question, I think.

    @MartinSojka I can confirm That `ncl` and `player.additem` do **not** prevent getting an achievement in More detail: http://gaming.stackexchange.com/q/35162/6914

    Using console **does not** disqualify you from getting Steam achievements in Skyrim.
