Quick Overview

The add_relic command in Stellaris is used to add a specific relic to the player's empire. The player needs to replace [relic id] with the ID of the relic they wish to add.

In-Depth Description

The add_relic command in Stellaris is a cheat command that allows you to instantly acquire a specific relic or all relics in the game, depending on the input you use. In Stellaris, relics are extremely valuable items with significant benefits that can be discovered throughout the galaxy.

If you want to add a specific relic to your collection, the syntax for the command is add_relic [relic id], replacing [relic id] with the ID of the relic you want to add.

For instance, if you want to get the Rubricator relic, you would type add_relic r_rubricator.

Alternatively, if you want to obtain all relics at once, you can use the command add_relic all, and every single relic in the game will be instantly added to your empire.

This command can be helpful if you're either looking to test different strategies with various relics or if you simply want to embellish your empire with all the relics for a pseudo-sandbox or "god mode" playthrough.

Relics can give a wide variety of benefits, like providing resources, boosting ship power, or even invoking the wraith of ancient gods to terrorize your enemies.

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 .
