Quick Overview

The clear command in Europa Universalis IV is used to remove all the text and logs that have been written in the command console from the current session.

It gives you a clean, fresh start on the console.

If there's too much output or history, using clear tidies things up.

In-Depth Description

The clear command in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) is used to clear the console of any previous commands or texts.

The console in EU4 is a special debugging window where a player can type commands.

These commands influence the game in various ways as they can change the game's settings, variables, and behaviors.

Console commands are typically used for debugging purposes, adjusting game parameters, or imposing specific conditions.

The clear command is most useful when you've input many commands and the console is cluttered with old commands and their outputs.

This makes it harder to keep track of what you're doing. By typing clear, you can remove this clutter, making your console clean again.

This command makes managing the console easier, especially during debugging or when executing multiple commands in series.

This command does not affect the game's state or progress, its primary role is for organization and management of the console.

Use it any time you feel the console has become too cluttered.

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 .
