Quick Overview

The own command in Stellaris is used to gain immediate control and ownership over a selected fleet, starbase, or planet.

This can be achieved without needing to go through conventional game methods such as conquest or colonization. If there's no specific selection made, then the command applies to the planet ID that's provided as an argument.

However, this command can also force uncolonizable celestial bodies to be treated as colonies, though these won't have a capital building due to their nature.

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 .
