Quick Overview

The debug_achievements_clear command in Europa Universalis IV is used to clear all achievements and user statistics.

However, it is crucial to note that using this command will permanently delete all the achievements you have earned and associated with your Steam account (and other stores where you may have linked your game).

Therefore, it is strongly advised not to use this command unless you are certain you want to remove all your game progress and achievements.

In-Depth Description

The command debug_achievements_clear in Europa Universalis IV is used to delete all the achievements and user statistics that a player has accumulated over the course of their playtime.

When this command is executed, it will eliminate every achievement that a player has earned, along with any associated user stats, resetting the game as though it had never been played before on the user's account.

This command takes effect immediately once it's entered into the game's console, and its effects are irreversible.

While this command might seem drastic, there may be scenarios where a player might want to use it.

For instance, if a player wants to start their game from scratch for a completely fresh experience without previous achievements or stats feat influencing their progression, this command might come in handy.

However, it is important to note - and cannot be stressed enough - that this command should be used with extreme caution.

Given the irreversible nature of the command, implementation should only be handled when a player is certain they are okay with losing all previous achievements and stats.

This would not only clear achievements from the game itself, but also on platforms like Steam that track these achievements.

In summary, while the debug_achievements_clear command offers a way for users to return their game to its original state before any achievements were earned or stats accumulated, its use should take into consideration the loss of all achievements - both in the game and on any linked platforms like Steam or other game stores.
