Quick Overview

The command factions.spawnall in Stellaris is used to spawn all the potential factions in the game.

However, there is a restriction that these factions will only remain if at least 10 in-game years have passed since the start of your current game; if they haven't, the factions will disappear immediately after being spawned. This can be useful for testing or providing variation in your gameplay.

In-Depth Description

The command factions.spawnall in Stellaris forces all possible factions to spawn immediately in your game.

Stellaris contains a variety of political factions, each with distinct goals and benefits. These factions influence your gameplay by giving you additional tasks and rewards to achieve their objectives.

This command thus introduces new potential challenges or opportunities for your gameplay, depending on your chosen species and government.

However, the caveat is that these factions will disappear immediately if your game is still within the first 10 years.

The reason behind this is to provide players with a grace period to establish their empires before introducing the complexities of faction politics.

As such, this command is handy for players who wish to bypass the wait and face the full range of inter-faction politics right away.

However, it's also beneficial for players who simply wish to experiment or observe the game's faction politics without spending time allowing each faction to arise naturally.

Please note that each faction's spawning is subject to meeting particular prerequisite conditions related to things like governing ethics, civics, technologies, and more.

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 .
