Satisfactory: All Console Commands & What They Do (2023)

Those looking for a game all about building, upgrading, and automation should definitely check out Satisfactory. In this title, players get dropped onto an alien world with just a few tools to begin with, however, they can quickly and efficiently set up self-running factories to produce increasingly complex components and devices.

Due to the complexity of the machines, crafting, and automation, things can sometimes go awry in Satisfactory, but not in the ways that the developers intended. Glitches and bugs are not by any means common, though, they do exist. Thankfully, players on PC have access to console commands which can help them out of tricky and unexpected situations.

Updated on November 1, 2021, by Reyadh Rahaman: The developers of Satisfactory, Coffee Stain Studios, have missed a few bugs here and there, but it is not nearly as riddled with bizarre glitches as one of their older games, Goat Simulator, albeit the latter's jank being on purpose for comedic effects. It should also be mentioned that this weird and hilarious simulator game earned the company more revenue than any of its other titles, which allowed the developers to pump some decent funds into their newer ones.

Coffee Stain Studios hit another home run with the release of Satisfactory, as it gathered a great following while in early access which carried on into the full release of the game, proving that the idea of a first-person version of the industrial adventure known as Factorio was wanted by the gaming community.

To enable the console, players will need to press the Control, Shift, and L keys simultaneously, though, keep in mind that the game will not give one any feedback to determine whether or not this was successful. This enabling is maintained until the player exits the game.

Now that the console has been enabled, players can open up the console command window by pressing the Tilde key. Pressing the Tilde key again will increase the size of the window, which makes it easier to input longer commands--after this, one can now input console commands as desired.

The majority of the commands that one can input are relatively straightforward with the exception of the Debug commands. Players stuck somewhere or encountering an unfortunate glitch can still use non-Debug commands to resolve issues, and this is preferable as they are easier to input.

While the non-Debug commands mostly pertain to affecting the environment and gameplay, the Debug commands focus on the physical properties of the game's engine and in-game items. Regardless of the kind of Debug command input into the console window, the following information will always show up in the upper left corner of the screen:

  • Player name
  • Coordinates in the world (X, Y, Z)
  • Rotation of planet
  • Instigator value
  • Owner of game
  • Eye height of the player

There are many sub-commands that can be used via the Debug command's main input string, however, they are all single words that need to be included in the italicized portion of the main command string, which is the following:

  • ShowDebug DebugType[FName]

Before utilizing any of these Debug commands, it is important to note that many of them have not been verified and can be risky to implement, therefore players should always save their game before trying any of them.

The History & Release Of Satisfactory

Prior To Development

Before Satisfactory, the most recent release from Coffee Stain Studios was Goat Simulator, which is what really put them on the global gaming community's radar as an interesting developer to watch, as the latter earned the company 12 million dollars in 2 years (between 2014 and 2016). There was a big gap between the two games, however, as Goat Simulator was released in 2014 while Satisfactory entered early access in 2019.

This seems to indicate that the development team at Coffee Stain Studios was planning and organizing their industrial-themed game for a while, as they did not publish any in-house developed titles between the releases of the aforementioned games. Though, it should be mentioned that Coffee Stain Studios was still publishing games by other developers during this period--just not their own.

Release & Sales Information Of Satisfactory

Satisfactory entered early access in March 2019 and sold just over half a million copies between then and July 2019--just 4 months. In the following year, from July 2019 to July 2020, Satisfactory sold another 1.3 million copies, making it truly successful.

When the revenue from all copies sold was calculated in mid-2021, the figure turned out to be about 11.5 million dollars, which is about as successful as Goat Simulator, meaning that Coffee Stain Studios is capable of consistently putting out fun and unique games.

Satisfactory is available on Microsoft Windows.
