In-Depth Description

The filewatcher command in Stellaris is used to toggle on or off the file watching system of the game.

This system keeps an eye on the files associated with the game, and if it detects any changes, it will automatically reload the affected files.

This feature is especially useful for modders or game developers who work with game files and make changes to them frequently.

By using the filewatcher command, they can see their changes implemented instantly without having to completely restart the game.

This makes it a useful tool in the development and modification process, enabling faster and more efficient work.

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 .
