Quick Overview

The ai_anomalies command in Stellaris is used to activate or deactivate a game setting that determines whether human-controlled empires can encounter anomalies typically reserved for AI-controlled empires.

If you enable it, human empires will also begin to encounter these AI-specific anomalies in their gameplay.

If you disable it, only AI empires will encounter these anomalies.

In-Depth Description

The ai_anomalies is a command in Stellaris that allows you to toggle or switch on and off the appearance of anomalies only for AI-controlled empires in the game.

In Stellaris, anomalies are uncertain events or discoveries that can occur when a science ship surveys a celestial body.

Resolving these anomalies can lead to various outcomes ranging from positive effects such as technology, resources, or new planets, to negative events - disasters, or even the spawning of hostile entities.

By default, some special anomalies only appear for AI-controlled empires to create a balanced and engaging gameplay for the human player. Using this command and setting it to off means that these special AI-only anomalies will also be available to human players.

You can use this command when you want to have an encounter with as many different anomalies as possible, including the ones AI usually encounters, to enrich your gameplay experience and perhaps gain advantages that were previously only available to AI empires.

It provides a way to diversify your game and challenge yourself with new and unexpected situations.

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 .
