Quick Overview

The add_intel command in Stellaris is used to add a certain amount of intel, or information, about a specific target.

By default, this command adds 10 points of intel, but you can specify a different amount if you'd like. The [target] is replaced with the ID of the empire, planet, or entity you want to gather intel on.

This increases your knowledge about that target's activities, strength, plans, etc.

In-Depth Description

The add_intel is a console command in Stellaris that lets you add a particular amount of intelligence toward a specific target. By default, it adds 10 intel.

This command gives you an advantage of visibility or understanding about the target.

Intel in Stellaris can refer to relevant informational substances such as the intel level on empires, revealing a particular empire's secrets, their fleets' power, and general workings.

To use the command, open the console by pressing the ~ key during gameplay, then type add_intel followed by the amount you wish to add and your target.

If no target is specified, the command will default to your own empire. For example, add_intel 50 would add 50 intel to your own empire.

This command can be beneficial in multiple situations, such as when you are preparing for war and want additional intel on a potential adversary to better plan your military strategies, or simply when you want to understand more about the other empires operating within the game.

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 .
