Quick Overview

The debugtexture command in Stellaris is used to display information about textures within the game.

When this command is enabled, it will show details such as the type of texture, its resolution, and other pertinent information.

This command is often used when there are issues with the game's graphics, allowing developers or players to diagnose and potentially fix those problems.

In-Depth Description

The debugtexture command in Stellaris is used as a diagnostic tool to help troubleshoot or identify problems related to the game's textures.

Textures are the graphical skins or appearances that are applied to different elements in the game to give them their individual look (like the surface of a planet, the design of a spaceship, or the appearance of a character).

When you use this command followed by specific parameters, it allows you to pull up a texture debug view on your screen that shows details of textures in use.

This can be useful when creating custom mods, designing new textures or troubleshooting graphical glitches.

It can provide various technical information about that texture, including its name, size (in terms of how much memory it is using), its coordinates on the screen, and possibly other data.

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 .
