Quick Overview

The culture command in Europa Universalis IV allows you to change the culture of a specific province to match your primary culture.

In the game, culture plays an essential role as it affects happiness, production, and has the potential to cause unrest if a province's culture differs from your country's primary culture.

By using this console command, you will need to input the province ID to specify which province's culture you wish to change.

In-Depth Description

The culture command in Europa Universalis IV allows the player to change the culture of a specific province to their primary culture.

In terms of mechanics, culture refers to the culture that is dominant in a certain province.

The dominate culture of a province will cause certain effects, such as reducing unrest, increasing tax and manpower, and more.

To use the command, you would enter it into the console as culture [province id]. The province id is a numerical identifier unique to each province on the map.

The culture command can be used strategically in a variety of ways.

For instance, a province with a different culture to the nation controlling it can be more difficult to govern due to the penalties to unrest and tax.

By changing a province's culture to your primary culture, you can facilitate easier governance, reduce unrest, and increase the amount of tax and manpower that province provides.

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 .
