Quick Overview

The add_trait_leader command in Stellaris is used to add specific traits to a leader character within the game.

You do this by specifying the leader trait ID and leader ID as arguments in the command.

This command allows you to modify the traits of your leaders in the game, thereby possibly altering their abilities and attributes.

In-Depth Description

The add_trait_leader is a console command in Stellaris, a real-time grand strategy game, that allows you to add specific traits to specific leaders present within your empire.

The game employs a trait system, where each leader character can possess certain character traits that could affect different aspects of gameplay, like governing a planet or commanding a ship.

To use this command, you input add_trait_leader, followed by the specific identifier or ID of the leader to which you want to add a trait, and then the identifier or ID of the trait you wish to add.

The format of the command is: add_trait_leader [leader id] [leader trait id]

If you only enter the leader's ID without a leader trait ID, the game will return the list of all trait IDs applicable to that particular leader class.

For instance, entering add_trait_leader 12 will display a list of all traits that can be given to the leader with ID 12.

This command can be useful if you're trying to quickly test strategies with different leader traits or if you're in a situation where you need to increase a leader's effectiveness quickly. It can also provide an extra layer of customization to personalize the experience.

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 .
