In-Depth Description

The dip is an EU4 console command which increases your country's diplomatic power. The command syntax is dip [amount]. If the amount parameter is not specified, it defaults to 999.

Diplomatic power in EU4 is a type of power currency, others being administrative and military. It's used to enact a variety of actions such as negotiating treaties, fabricating claims, developing provinces, embracing institutions, hiring leaders, etc.

It's gained passively from the monarch’s diplomatic skill and advisors and it can vary over time based on your focus, policies, and other factors. Running out of diplomatic power can limit your country's activities and growth, while stockpiling them can prepare for ambitious moves.

The dip console command allows players to quickly gain a large amount of diplomatic power. It's helpful in cases where you need to perform a diplomatic action, but do not have enough diplomatic power saved up, or if you're playing for fun and want to avoid waiting for power to accumulate. It should be used when you want to quickly proceed with activities requiring diplomatic power.
