Quick Overview

The 3dstats command in Stellaris is used to toggle, or switch on and off, the display of 3D Stats on the screen while playing the game. These stats include the Frames Per Second (FPS) and render time of the game.

FPS indicates how many frames per second the game is successfully rendering, which can be an indicator of the game's performance on your computer.

The render time provides information on how long it takes to render one frame. Both are tools to analyze the game's performance.

In-Depth Description

The 3dstats command is a console command in Stellaris that toggles on and off the 3D stats of the game. This means that when activated, it displays the Frames Per Second (FPS) and the render time information on your screen.

Frames Per Second (FPS) refers to the rate at which consecutive images (frames) appear on your display.

The higher the FPS, the smoother the game appears.

So, seeing your FPS can help you determine if your game is running well, or if it's lagging due to low FPS. This can be useful when trying to troubleshoot performance issues, or when adjusting your game settings for the best possible performance.

Render time, on the other hand, refers to the amount of time it takes for the game to process and generate each frame. It's another indicator of the game's performance. If render time is high, it means the game is taking longer to produce each image, which can lead to lag or stuttering in gameplay.

You should use this command when you want to evaluate how well your game is performing or if you start noticing issues with lag or stuttering. It's a diagnostic tool that can help determine if the game is running smoothly, and if not, where the problems might lie.

How to Open the Command Console

In Stellaris, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

To open the command console press the ~(tilde) key, which is typically located under ESC (escape).

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~
  • SHIFT + 2
  • SHIFT + 3
  • ALT + 2 + 1

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
