Summary0000217: Client side JS doesn't recognize "spawnPlayer"
DescriptionThe exact code I am using is:
addEventHandler("onPedWasted", (event,ped) => {
 if ( =={
    spawnPlayer([486.630, 491.788, 10.547], 6, 3);

I have tested the spawn parameters on the server side and it works well. The event also isn't the issue. The error from the client side console is:

ReferenceError: spawnPlayer is not defined

... which I know to mean it can't access the function. I feel that I'm missing something really simple here. Is there another object that I need to call that function from? I already tried gta.spawnPlayer (the Wiki shows sone functions and objects needing a "gta." prefix and not others). Any help is appreciated!
Steps To ReproduceaddEventHandler("onPedWasted", (event,ped) => {
 if ( =={
    spawnPlayer([486.630, 491.788, 10.547], 6, 3);

// Client side
// Event is not the issue

spawnPlayer in clientside exists only while you're disconnected

As lucy explained, spawnPlayer in clientside exists only while you're disconnected.

It's not meant to be used in multiplayer since the server handles all player spawning, and the wiki will be updated to mention that.
