In-Depth Description

The dump_origins command in Stellaris is used to print and display all the origins of every civilization or species in the existing galaxy to a text file.

This command gives an overview of every empire's background or initial set of conditions.

The origins of a civilization can significantly influence the culture, bonuses, starting conditions, and overall strategy of a civilization and knowing them can offer a great strategic advantage in the game.

For example, some origins start with special resources, unique buildings, or capabilities, while others even have their own quest lines, which can guide you in knowing which civilizations might be more prone to certain alliances or conflicts.

Using the command can be especially handy when you want to plan your diplomatic interactions, conquest strategies, or just want to have a broader understanding of your game universe.

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

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
