DisableSpectator Command

This command exits the spectator mode.

In-Depth Description

The DisableSpectator command is used to exit the spectator mode.

Spectator mode is a feature in the game that allows you to fly around the map without interacting with the environment or entities in it.

When you enter spectator mode using the command EnableSpectator, you leave your character behind and navigate the map as a 'free camera'.

This can be beneficial in several ways. For example, it can help server admins investigate claims of cheating or harassment, because it allows them to observe without being noticed. It is also helpful for players who stream or create video content, as they can get cinematic shots without their character in the frame.

The command DisableSpectator exits this mode and returns you to controlling your character. This is beneficial because it allows you to transition back to normal gameplay after you have done what you need to do in spectator mode.

You should use this command when you're done spectating and ready to return to standard gameplay.
