In-Depth Description

The command "add_diplo" in EU4 allows you to add diplomatic envoys to your nation. The term "enroute" can be confusing because it is not explicitly used in the context of Europa Universalis IV commands, but it could be inferred to mean that you add these diplomatic envoys and they become immediately available for use.

The command is very utilisable as it expedites game processes where diplomatic envoys are required. For instance, instead of waiting for your envoys to replenish, you can just use this command and immediately have envoys at your disposal.

This could be beneficial in various scenarios such as when you're negotiating alliances, offering vassalization, or any other diplomacy aspect that involves the use of envoys.

Remember, however, that everything should be balanced. Continual use of such commands might make the game too easy or unrealistic according to some players, which is why some prefer using them minimally or not at all.

As to when to use it, it entirely depends on the player's needs and strategy. If you are in a hurry to establish diplomatic relations with several nations simultaneously, for example, adding more envoys could be a great strategy to speed up these processes.

How to Open the Command Console

In EU4, 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 .
