In-Depth Description

The finish_arc_stage is a console command in Stellaris that allows a player to instantly complete the current stage of an archaeological site.

It is especially useful when the player wants to speed up their gameplay and progress through the archaeological site more quickly.

In Stellaris, archaeological sites represent points of interest, usually involving a science ship that needs to excavate them to uncover their mysteries, stories and rewards.

Without the command, progressing through an archaeological site is often a time-consuming process that involves a lot of waiting as it heavily relies on the skill of the scientist and on random chances.

When using the finish_arc_stage command, you need to have the celestial body carrying the archaeological site selected and a science ship actively working on its excavation.

The command does not involve any arguments and when used properly, the game will progress to the next stage of the archaeological site, saving you days in task time.

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 .
