In-Depth Description

The command add_loyalty [estate id] [amount] in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) is a useful command that helps increase the loyalty of a specific estate by a certain amount.

One of the dynamic political aspects of EU4 is the estates system: your realm is composed of different estates (such as Nobles, Burghers, or different religious groups) each with their own interests, influence, and loyalty to your crown. This command fits into that gameplay aspect by modifying loyalty values.

If you type in, for example, add_loyalty estate_nobles 20, it will add 20 loyalty to the Nobles estate.

This command is incredibly helpful when you're struggling with managing the loyalty of various estates. If an estate's loyalty falls too low, they may revolt or cause other political problems. Therefore, using this command at the right time can prevent internal strife and maintain more stability within your realm.

Remember, the effectiveness of this command lies in carefully balancing the interests of all your estates. Using it excessively on one estate might result in another becoming too influential, leading to new problems down the line. So, while powerful, this command should be used strategically and with foresight of the potential in-game political consequences.

The estate identifiers change depending on the culture and religion of your country, so make sure to use the one that applies to your current situation.
