Quick Overview

The wireframe command in Stellaris is used to adjust the visuals of the game. When this command is activated, all 3D-rendered objects in the game will switch to a wireframe mode.

This means that instead of seeing detailed, colored textures, the player will see objects as a mesh of lines outlining their shapes.

This can be useful for developers or players who are trying to understand the underlying structure of 3D objects in the game.

If you run this command again, it will turn the wireframe view off, returning the game visuals back to normal.

In-Depth Description

The wireframe command in Stellaris is used to toggle the forced wireframe graphics in the game.

When activated, this command changes the visual representation of all the models in the game (like ships, creatures, and various celestial bodies) to display only their wireframe, or skeletal structure, instead of the fully rendered 3D versions.

This command is primarily used for debugging or development purposes, allowing developers or modders to better understand the structure of models in the game.

However, it can also be used by players who are curious to see what the game's models look like in their most basic form.

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 .
