CLI Release notes


  • Simplified process for building scenes. Running dcl init no longer asks you questions about the scene. To provide information like scene owner or what parcels to deploy, edit the scene.json file directly.

    Note: To create a scene using a different template from the default, clone one of the existing sample scenes.

  • Support for deploying to estates comprised of multiple parcels. When deploying to an estate, you must set the estate ID and the parcel coordinates in the scene.json file. It’s no longer supported to deploy to multiple separate parcels if they’re not merged into an estate on the marketplace.

    See marketplace docs for instructions on how to create an estate.

  • Support for estates when using the dcl info command.

  • Various bug fixes and performance improvements.


  • Rebrand metaverse-api -> decentraland-api
  • Decentraland scenes can now be uploaded to services like and other platforms. This can be used to share scenes in an easier way and to automate testing. To do this you must make these modifications to the package.json file:

    • Add a new now-start command that runs dcl start but adds a ci flag: dcl start --ci. This prevents analytics and browser launching, which interferes with several platforms.
    • Add "decentraland":"latest" as a devDependency in the project.
