You need to specify the resource you want to add and the amount.

In-Depth Description

The resource command in Stellaris is a cheat command allowing you to add a specified amount of any particular resource instantly to your game.

Resources in Stellaris are what you need to build and maintain your empire. Examples are energy, minerals, food, influence, and various strategic resources.

To use the command, you'll need to type something like resource energy 5000 into the console. This would add 5000 energy to your resources. You can substitute energy for any other type of resource.

It can allow you to rapidly expand your empire in ways that would otherwise take much longer play time to achieve. If you're short on a particular resource and need it quickly, this command can give you a significant boost.

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 .
