Quick Overview

The `add_opinion command in Stellaris is used to increase the opinion of one empire (the source) towards another empire (the target).

The amount of opinion points added is determined by the value you place after the command, with a default value of 40 if no specific number is given.

Positive opinions can lead to better relations between empires, such as non-aggression pacts, alliances, or simply improved dialogue.

In-Depth Description

The add_opinion command in Stellaris is used to artificially increase the opinion of one empire towards another.

The command works by taking in three inputs: the empire whose opinion is being manipulated (the source), the empire they are forming an opinion about (the target), and the degree to which this opinion is increasing (the amount).

By default, the amount is set to 40, meaning that without specifying a value, the opinion is increased by 40 points. Therefore, the general formula for the command is: add_opinion [source] [target] [amount]

This command can be very helpful in a variety of diplomatic scenarios. For instance, you can use it to warm relations between your empire and a difficult neighbor, potentially avoiding conflicts or making them more receptive to alliances, trade deals, or other cooperative moves.

You can also use it to manipulate other empires' relationships, causing friendlier relations between two empires that might otherwise be antagonistic.

How to Open the Command Console

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:

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