Quick Overview

The break_fleet_contract command in Stellaris is used to return a fleet that has been leased out (presumably by the player to an AI or vice versa) back to its original owner before the lease contract has ended.

This would in effect nullify the ongoing lease agreement for the specified fleet.

In-Depth Description

The break_fleet_contract command in Stellaris is a powerful one that allows you to return a leased fleet to its original owner before the end of the contract agreement.

In Stellaris, the fleet contract is an agreement with another empire where you can lease one of their fleets for a certain period of time.

This can be especially useful when you're in need of an extra fleet to handle tasks, expeditions, or wars but insufficient fleet capacity or resources prevent you from building one on your own.

Typically, once you lease a fleet, it's in your control until the contract ends. However, should you find yourself in a situation where you no longer require the services of the leased fleet, you may have the opportunity to end the contract early without any penalty.

This is where the break_fleet_contract command comes in.

When you use this command and select the leased fleet, the fleet will instantly be returned to its original owner, making it no longer accessible to you for deployment or control. This could save you some resources if you're paying for the lease and you don't need the fleet anymore.

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 .
