Syntax /timed <#> <command>
Description Executes command after a specified duration, given in deciseconds.


Option Description
<#> The number of deciseconds to wait
<command> The command you'd like to execute


  • To echo a message after 1 second:

/timed 10 /echo 1 second has passed


  • This does not pause successive commands.
  • The first argument must be a literal integer (e.g. 2)
  • It is not parsed for MQ2Data, so this wouldn't work: /timed ${Math.Calc[1+1]}

An exception to this being the use of /docommand in combination with /timed, which does work:

/docommand /timed ${Math.Calc[1+1]} /echo This works
