Quick Overview

The command add_trait_species is used to add specific traits to a specific species within the game. You need to provide two pieces of information when using this command: the species trait id and the species id.

The species trait id represents the characteristic or ability you want to add to the species. For example, it might be something like "strong" or "intelligent".

The species id represents the specific species you want to add the trait to. For example, it could be a human species or an alien species.

By using this command, you can modify the attributes of different species in your Stellaris game to suit your strategy.

In-Depth Description

The add_trait_species command in Stellaris is used to add a specific trait to a species. Traits define what a species is innately good at and affect gameplay in different ways.

For example, traits can boost a species' intelligence, energy production, or combat capabilities.

To use the command, you must specify the species trait ID and the species ID.

The species trait ID is the identifier for the specific attribute you want to add, while the species ID is the identifier for the species to which you want to add the trait.

For instance, if you type add_trait_species 4 trait_thrifty, the species with the ID 4 will get the Thrifty trait which increases energy credit output.

This could be particularly helpful in situations where you need an urgent boost in energy credit productivity and have a species that resides on planets with plenty of commerce zones.

This command is useful when the player wants to enhance a species’ abilities to better suit their gameplay style or to tackle different situations that may arise during play.

If it was discovered, for example, that a species lacked specific resources or was not efficient enough in a particular field, the player can modify the species to better adapt to their environment or play style.

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 .
