Quick Overview

The cash command in Stellaris is used to automatically increase the amount of Energy Credits in your game.

Energy Credits are one of the main resources in Stellaris, generated primarily through the construction of Power Plants or Trading Stations and spent on things like maintenance costs and trade deals.

By inputting a specific amount following the command, you can increase your Energy Credits by that amount.

If you enter the command without specifying an amount, you'll default to receiving 5000 Energy Credits.

For example, entering cash 5000 would give you 5000 Energy Credits.

In-Depth Description

The cash command in Stellaris is used to add energy credits instantly to your current balance. Energy credits are the primary resource in Stellaris and can be used to buy goods, build new ships, maintain your military fleet, and other various expenditures.

When you type cash into the console without specifying the amount, you will get 5000 energy credits by default.

However, if you want a specific amount, you can specify it by typing cash [desired amount]. For example, if you want 10,000 energy credits, you would type cash 10000.

This command can be valuable when you need a quick surge of resources in the game but are not immediately able to generate them. For example, sudden war or expansion costs can be covered instantly with this command.

You should use this command when you need a large amount of resources at a time's notice and cannot produce them quickly enough.

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 .
