Quick Overview

The command activate_gateways in Stellaris is used to activate all the gateways in the galaxy.

This can be very handy if you want to move your fleets quickly across the galaxy.

In-Depth Description

The activate_gateways command in Stellaris, as the name suggests, immediately activates all the gateways in the galaxy.

Gateways are structures that exist in the Stellaris universe or are constructed by players, which allow for ultra-fast travel between distant star systems.

Typically, gateways need to be activated before they can be used, a process typically dependent on research and resources.

The activate_gateways command bypasses this requirement and instantaneously activates all gateways, regardless of their current status or who they belong to.

This means that all civilizations in the galaxy, including the player's, will be able to use all gateways instantly.

It's beneficial as it saves the time and resources required to manually activate each gateway.

However, consider its effects as it invokes universal activation, providing the same benefits to all empires, not only the player's.

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 .
