Quick Overview

The Stellaris command alienfx is made to work with Alienware computer systems, which feature AlienFX lighting technology.

When used, this command attempts to change the lighting effects of the Alienware computer system in conjunction with in-game events or statuses for a more immersive gaming experience.

In-Depth Description

The alienfx command in Stellaris is an intriguing feature related to the external aesthetics of the game. The command is designed to work with Alienware hardware.

Alienware is a division of Dell, known for producing high-end gaming computers, and Alien FX refers to a lighting control system found on Alienware devices. It allows you to change the colors of the LEDs on an Alienware computer chassis.

When you use the alienfx command, the game, Stellaris, tries to change the computer lights with Alien FX.

This means that the lighting on your Alienware computer hardware will react and change based on gameplay events happening in Stellaris.

For example, if you're at war in the game, the lights might change to a threatening red, or if your empire is at peace, they might shift to a more peaceful color.

This command serves to enhance the immersion and players’ overall gaming experience by allowing the lights on their gaming setup to match their in-game activities.

It's also purely cosmetic, meaning it doesn't affect the gameplay or provide any advantages or disadvantages in the game.
