Quick Overview

The command add_opinion in Europa Universalis IV is used to change the opinion of one nation (tag) toward another.

The "tag" here refers to the unique identifier that the game uses for each nation. So for instance, if you want to improve France's opinion of Germany, you'd use France's tag as first parameter and Germany's tag as second parameter with the command.

In-Depth Description

The add_opinion command is a console command in Europa Universalis IV which you can use to manipulate the opinion between two countries. It immediately alters the opinion one country has over the other.

The syntax is add_opinion [source country tag] [target country tag]. The source country tag is the country making the modifier by the action, whereas the target country tag is the country that's having its opinion of the source country modified.

For example, if you wish to set the opinion of France (FRA) towards England (ENG) to 100, you would input the following command in the console: add_opinion ENG FRA. This would set England's opinion of France to 100.

This command can be useful when you're dealing with diplomatic actions such as forming alliances, trade agreements, or when you desire peace agreements. These actions often require a certain level of positive opinion between nations. The command could help you to alter country relations according to your needs without the waiting time of natural increase.
