Quick Overview

This Stellaris command is used to switch the game's artificial intelligence (AI) on or off.

When turned off, the AI-controlled empires in the game will become inactive and will not perform any actions, enabling the player to manipulate the game without any AI interventions.

Conversely, when the AI is turned on, it will resume its activities and affect the gameplay based on its programmed behaviors.

In-Depth Description

The ai command in Stellaris is a console command that toggles the game's AI on or off.

When you input ai into the console, all non-player empires AI is either enabled or disabled, depending on its current state. If the AI was active, entering the command would turn it off, and vice versa.

When the AI is turned off, all non-player controlled entities in the game stop making decisions. They will not attack, research, build or make any diplomatic decisions, effectively putting their progress in stasis.

This command can be helpful if, for example, you want to focus on building and expanding your own empire without the interference or influence of others.

It gives you the ability to play the game at your own pace without worrying about AI entities making moves.

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 .
