Quick Overview

In Stellaris, the command "`" is used to instantly end the current senate recess and initiate a new senate vote.

This console command is generally used when playing in a galactic community setting where collective decisions are made through voting.

In-Depth Description

The force_senate_vote command in Stellaris is used to trigger a senate vote immediately, rather than waiting for it to occur naturally according to the game's timeline.

In normal gameplay, the Galactic Senate goes into recess after voting on a resolution. During this recess period, you have time to prepare for the next vote, whether that means building alliances, lobbying for support, trying to improve your diplomatic Weight, or proposing your own resolution.

However, if you want to expedite the voting process, you can use the force_senate_vote console command. The current senate recess will end instantly and the next vote will begin immediately.

This can be helpful when you have a strategic or tactical advantage that you want to capitalize on quickly, such as having many alliances or a large diplomatic weight that can sway the vote in your favor.

Also, it can push through changes faster and dictate the flow of galactic politics.

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 .
