Quick Overview

In the game Stellaris, the command skills is used to add an amount of skill levels to every leader under your control.

This means that if you input this command, the skill level of all your leaders would increase, thus enhancing your game.

The default value is 1, which means that without specifying an amount, your leaders would be boosted by 1 skill level.

In-Depth Description

The Stellaris command skills is used to increase the skill levels of every leader currently under a player's control.

The [amount] parameter specifies how many skill levels you want to add. If you enter the command without any amount specified, it defaults to adding 1 level of skill to every leader.

Leaders in Stellaris have a vital role as they manage your Empire's sectors, military fleets, or conduct scientific research.

As leaders gain more skill levels, they become more effective in their roles, making your empire run more efficiently.

Increasing their skill levels can mean a faster rate of research, more efficient resource exploitation, or enhanced military capability.

For example, if you just type skills and hit enter, each of your leaders will gain 1 skill level. But if you type skills 5, each of your leaders will gain 5 skill levels.

However, keep in mind each leader has a maximum skill level. Therefore, if you try to add more skills than their maximum allows, the command won't have any additional effect.

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 .
