Quick Overview

The ai_plan_regions command in Europa Universalis IV forces the computer-controlled AI to reevaluate and reassess all of its assigned regions.

This may cause it to alter its strategy and actions, depending on the game's circumstances.

In-Depth Description

The ai_plan_regions command in Europa Universalis IV is a console command that prompts the artificial intelligence (AI) of the game to reevaluate all of its region assignments.

Region assignments in EU4 are part of how the AI determines its strategy for expansion, development, defense, and other aspects of gameplay.

The command can be very helpful for debugging if you're playing in single-player mode and need to influence the AI's decision-making.

For instance, if you have made significant changes to the map or the balance of power in a game and you want the AI to take these changes into consideration immediately, you can use this command.

Alternatively, if you believe that the AI isn't acting as it should in terms of its region assignments - if it's neglecting to defend its borders or is focusing too much on one area to the exclusion of others - you can use this command to have the AI reassess its priorities.

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 .
