Quick Overview

The run command in Stellaris is used to execute a file that contains a list of other Stellaris console commands.

This file should have an INI extension and must be located in the root Stellaris folder in your My Documents on your computer.

You have to substitute [insert file name here] with the actual name of the file you want to run.

It allows you to execute multiple commands at once without manually inputting them one by one, streamlining the gameplay process.

In-Depth Description

The run command in Stellaris is a script command mainly used for running a file consisting of a list of commands.

In order to use this command, you need to place the desired file in the root folder of Stellaris located in My Documents.

When you type in the run command followed by the name of the file (without brackets), the game executes all the commands that are listed in that file.

The file needs to have the .ini extension and the commands should be written in separate lines inside this file.

This run command can be incredibly helpful, especially if there are a set of commands that you frequently use while playing the game.

Instead of typing these commands manually every time you need them, you can simply create a .ini file with all these commands and use the run command to execute them all at once.

This can save time, ensure consistency in your game play, and also allows for easy optimization by running several tasks simultaneously.

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 .
