Quick Overview

The cash command in Europa Universalis IV is used to instantly add a specific amount of ducats (the game's currency) to your nation's treasury. If you don't specify an amount after the command, it will default to adding 5,000 ducats.

In-Depth Description

The cash command in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) is a cheat console command that is used to add a specific amount of ducats, the game's currency, directly into your nation's treasury.

By default, if you just type cash into the console without specifying an amount, the game will automatically add 5,000 ducats to your treasury. However, if you want to add a different amount, you can follow the cash command with the amount you desire. For example, typing cash 10000 would give your nation 10,000 ducats.

The command can be exceptionally helpful in different scenarios where you might need a quick influx of cash. This could include scenarios where your nation is at war and you need to hire mercenaries, or when you want to invest in building construction but don't have the necessary funds. It could also be beneficial for repaying loans to avoid accruing too much debt.

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 .
