Quick Overview

This Stellaris command is used to alter the level of devastation on a specified planet within the game.

By adding certain amount in the code, you can increase the level of devastation, and, conversely, using negative amount values will serve to decrease the levels of devastation on the planet.

In-Depth Description

The Stellaris console command effect add_planet_devastation = allows you to adjust the level of devastation on a selected planet.

Devastation in Stellaris refers to the physical destruction of a planet's infrastructure and surface from things like orbital bombardment or planetary invasions.

As devastation increases, the productivity of the planet significantly decreases, impacting population, building, and district output.

  • To add devastation to a planet, follow the command with a positive value (e.g., effect add_planet_devastation = 20 will add 20% devastation). This could be useful if you want to simulate war scenarios, or if you simply want to observe the effects of devastation on a planet, perhaps for educational or testing purposes.
  • To remove or reduce devastation, follow the command with a negative value (e.g., effect add_planet_devastation = -20 will reduce devastation by 20%). This is useful if you want to speed up recovery after a war, or if a planet has been devastated by other events in the game and you want to quickly restore its productivity.

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 .
