Quick Overview

The Stellaris command finish_terraform is used to instantly complete all ongoing terraforming processes in the game.

This means, when you are changing the environment of a planet to make it habitable or different, using this command will instantly complete that transformation, instead of having to wait for it to finish over time.

In-Depth Description

The finish_terraform command in Stellaris is a console command that completes all ongoing terraforming processes instantaneously.

When you use this command, any planet that you've started to terraform instantly transforms to the climate your species is most comfortable with, it could be a Arctic, Desert, Continental, Savannah, Ocean, Tropical, Alpine, Tundra or Arid.

Stellaris allows players to terraform uninhabitable planets into habitable ones over time, but this process normally takes a significant amount of time.

By using the finish_terraform command, you avoid the need to wait for the game to naturally process the transformation.

This can be very handy, especially in the late game when you might be expanding your empire fast and need to populate new planets quickly.

Therefore, the finish_terraform command can support an expansive strategy by allowing you to settle new planets almost immediately.

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 .
