Quick Overview

This Stellaris command allows you to display all types of notification messages in the game's top bar.

These notifications could range from a variety of things including interaction messages, event updates, or status changes happening within your game.

In-Depth Description

The command message in Stellaris is a debug command that when executed, displays all the different types of message categories on the top bar or the game screen.

These include but are not limited to alerts for upcoming dangers, diplomatic messages, research progress notifications, and updates about special events.

This command is used predominantly by developers for debug purposes. It can be useful for getting a comprehensive view of all possible messages that might appear during gameplay, including potentially rare or difficult to trigger events.

However, please note that this command could overwhelm the player with information, as it intentionally triggers every category of in-game message and therefore could disrupt the player`s actual game progress or storyline.

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 .
