Quick Overview

The trigger command in Stellaris is used to test and execute trigger scripts that have been created by the user.

These scripts are stored in text files (with a .txt extension) within the Stellaris game folder.

Trigger scripts are used to define and control game events, such as battles, discoveries, or political events, by setting their conditions and outcomes.

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 .
