The origins parameter determines the starting conditions and backstory of your empire.

In Stellaris, origins are used to further define the starting conditions and lore of your empire. They also add greater depth to your history and playstyle.

Different origins have different effects and benefits. For example, some origins grant you a powerful homeworld while others provide you with advanced technology or unique game mechanics.

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

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