Quick Overview

The admiral command in Europa Universalis IV is used to instantly create an admiral for your nation. The admiral will be generated with a random skill set. It's a cheat code often used in single-player games to quickly bolster your naval forces.

In-Depth Description

The admiral command in Europa Universalis IV is used to instantly generate an admiral. Admirals are a type of military leader in the game who specializes in naval warfare. When this command is used, a newly created admiral will appear in your leader pool.

When you type admiral into the console, randomly generated admiral will be created. The naval skills of the admiral will be randomly assigned by the game and can range from 0 to 6 (0 being the worst and 6 the best possible score for maneuver, fire, and shock).

If you want, you can specify the naval skills in the command.

Remember that admirals take up a leader slot, and exceeding your leader limit may have negative consequences such as a monthly increase to your military power points.

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 .
