Quick Overview

The fast_forward command in Stellaris allows you to speed up the game time and fast forward a specified number of days.

This is useful for bypassing slower parts of the game or patiently waiting for certain events or actions to take place.

For example, if you enter fast_forward 50, the game will fast forward 50 days.

In-Depth Description

The fast_forward command in Stellaris is a very useful tool for progressing the game's timeline at a faster rate.

It allows you to skip forward a specified number of days, which can speed up gameplay significantly, especially during periods of peace or stability where there isn't much else to do.

Here's how it works: Let's say you want to move forward 100 days, you would type fast_forward 100 into the console.

This command would then immediately move the game forward 100 days, allowing events that are scheduled to happen to take place without you having to wait for them in real-time.

It is important to note that the command will perform these actions instantly - this means time will not simply speed up, it will jump forward.

This command can be helpful in a variety of scenarios.

For instance, if you're in a period of peace and just waiting for your resources to accumulate, rather than just waiting for the days to pass in real-time, you can instruct Stellaris to skip forward a certain number of days.

You can use this command to get past the more boring or monotonous parts of the game quickly without having to intervene or wait for it to happen at the normal pace.

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 .
