Quick Overview

This command, when used, will modify the cohesion level of a federation in the game by a specified value.

It specifically applies to federations led by Native Council-type civilizations in EU4.

Federation cohesion refers to the integration and unity within the federation, indicating how well the federation members are coordinated or aligned with each other.

Higher cohesion could have various gameplay implications, such as improving cooperation among federation members.

The given value you input with the command determines how much the cohesion changes.

In-Depth Description

The federation_cohesion command in Europa Universalis IV is a command that is primarily used when playing within a federation of Native Councils. The function of this command is to alter the cohesion of your federation by a certain specified value.

This command has the potential to be very impactful in your gameplay. The cohesion value is a meter of how stable your federation is; a high cohesion indicates a stable, solid federation, while a low cohesion value could indicate instability and potential conflict within the federation.

You use this command by typing in federation_cohesion followed by a positive or negative number, which represents the amount you'd like to change the cohesion by. For example, typing federation_cohesion 10 will increase the cohesion of your federation by 10.

It's particularly useful when you're trying to keep your federation stable and united, or conversely, when you're trying to sow discord and fracture an opponent's federation.

Timing is critical when using this command; it's generally best used when your federation is at a tipping point, either about to collapse or about to solidify, depending on the gaming situation.

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 .
