Empyrion Console Commands

Even though online multiplayer game campaigns can be fun and interesting, sometimes you want to just take it out against the AI and tweak a game to the fullest with console commands and Cheat Engine cheat codes.

To ensure that you don’t spoil it to other players, the developers limited console commands to Gamemasters, Server Admins and Moderators. You have to be running a custom server to implement these commands.

This isn’t really since Empyrion, just like Civilization 5 and other decent server dependent online multiplayer titles always give players the freedom to create their own custom servers.

Update: Only Emyrion Console Commands marked as Gamemaster, Admin or Moderator commands need you to run your own or a friends server so as to gain these privileges and use them

How to Launch the Empyrion Command Console

Empyrion uses the tilde (~) key to bring up the command console. This is same to what other console command compatible games like Savage Lands, Doom 2, Binding of Isaac Afterbirth+ and many more.
