Quick Overview

This Stellaris console command is used to create a designated archaeological site on a selected celestial object (like a planet).

In-Depth Description

This command, effect create_archaeological_site, is used to add an archaeological site to a specific celestial body in the game Stellaris.

The archaeological site ID must be specified after the equals sign for a specific site to be created.

However, if you replace the site ID with the word random, a random archaeological site will be created instead.

In Stellaris, archaeological sites give players a way to uncover ancient relics, explore historical mysteries, and learn more about the galaxy's past. These sites offer a sort of mini-game where you solve the puzzle of the site by continuously excavating it.

This command is extremely helpful if you are looking forward to gaining unique technologies, gaining minor artifacts, or adding further depth to the story of the galaxy in the game.

It adds another layer of depth, as these sites have hints and clues about ancient civilizations and their demise, which could lead to game altering revelations or bonuses.

You might use this command when you want to explore more lore within the game or if your civilization could benefit from the rewards that can be reaped from solving these sites.

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 .
