Quick Overview

The deltat command in Stellaris is used to scale or adjust the game's internal sense of time, with the value provided determining the scale.

This can be used to speed up or slow down the pace at which events occur in the game.

For example, if you wanted the game to progress twice as fast, you would use a value of 2.

In-Depth Description

The deltat command in Stellaris is used to scale the Delta Time value by a given factor you input.

Delta Time refers to the amount of time that has elapsed since the last frame was refreshed or game 'tick'.

In the context of Stellaris, the deltat command does not affect the actual in-game time but it changes the speed at which events are processed in the game.

The function is responsible for the adjustment of simulations and animations to make sure they perform at the same speed regardless of the performance of your computer or the frame rate.

Using this command can be helpful when you want to slow down or speed up certain animations or simulations without affecting the in-game time.

But be careful, as increasing the speed by large factors might result in crashes or unstable gameplay due to increased demand on your computer's processing power.

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 .
