Quick Overview

This command is used to manually pause or resume the gameplay in Stellaris.

When you input game_paused into the command console, the game will either halt all in-game activities, allowing you to take your time considering your next move without any progress being made in the meantime, or it will resume all those activities if the game was previously paused.

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 .
