This article is considered accurate for the current version (2.2) of the game.

If you want to contribute to this page, which is a work in progress, in the console type "help" to see the list of commands, then to see a description and parameter of a command, type "help [command-name]", and put the corresponding details into the list.

This page deals with commands used in the console. For the modding term, see commands.

This page lists the codes which may be input into the Console Window, a special debugging window which may be accessed on non-ironman games by pressing Shift+2, ALT+2+1, Shift+3,§, ~, ^, °, ², or ` (key varies based on keyboard layout). For a QWERTY keyboard, the key is `. Else, try pressing Shift + Alt + C if none of the above worked. Press the up or down arrow keys to traverse through previously executed commands. Many codes can be turned off by repeating the command, but sometimes reloading the save or exiting the game is necessary.

Stellaris Commands

If you need to know IDs, use the debugtooltip command.

  • Species IDs can be read by hovering over a species in the Species menu. If a modded starting system was not used the player's species will always be 0 and 1.
  • Leader IDs can be read by hovering over a leader in the Leaders or Empire menus. If a modded starting system was not used the player's starting leaders will always be 0 (ruler), 1 (governor) and 2-5 (scientists).
  • Empire IDs can be read by hovering over an empire's flag in the Contacts menu. If a modded starting system was not used the player's empire will always be 0.


Cheats are console commands that can be used to give unfair advantages as opposed to sole testing purposes.

Example: effect change_government = { civics = { civic = civic_efficient_bureaucracy civic = civic_environmentalist civic = civic_functional_architecture civic = civic_mining_guilds } }

Civics incompatible with the current ethics and authority will not be added. However Civic corporate dominion.png Corporate Dominion can be added even if MegaCorp.png MegaCorp is enabled as long as its other requirements are met.
