Quick Overview

The Stellaris command reverse_diplo is used to send a diplomatic action from the selected target to the player.

Instead of the player initiating a diplomatic move towards an entity (which could be an empire, trading post, species, etc.), this command allows the subject to initiate the diplomacy towards the player.

This could be useful in testing diplomatic options or achieving desired diplomatic objectives in the game.

In-Depth Description

The reverse_diplo is a console command in Stellaris that has a unique feature. Traditionally, diplomatic commands are usually initiated by the player towards a target. However, this command has the ability to reverse that action.

When reverse_diplo is used, it enables a diplomatic order from a target empire to the player, instead of vice versa. It essentially swaps the roles and allows the AI-controlled empire to issue a diplomatic command to the player's empire.

Here's where this can be helpful: There may be scenarios in the game where you want to test different outcomes, or you're trying to manipulate the AI into a certain course of action.

The reverse_diplo command can allow you to do so by forcing the AI to initiate a particular diplomatic command. Thus, you will be in a position to explore more options and layers within the game.

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 .
