Quick Overview

The borders command in Stellaris is used to recalculate and refresh the map borders based on the current state of the game.

This means updating the territories of different empires according to the changes made through war, diplomacy, or colonization.

For instance, if you have recently annexed a system from another empire, using this command would immediately show the change in borders on the map.

In-Depth Description

When you type in the borders console command, the game will recalculate all borders on the map. This includes the borders of empires, fallen empires, marauder empires, and independent entities.

This command is useful in scenarios where the map borders have somehow become inaccurate or corrupted. By inputting the command, Stellaris will reestablish the accurate borders according to the current map situation in terms of what system belongs to which empire.

However, it should be noted that this command only fixes borders visuals - not ownership.

This means that if an empire has claimed a system but the border has not updated, using this command will not give the empire that system.

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 .
