Quick Overview

The findcommands command in Europa Universalis IV is used to search for particular console commands.

When you type findcommands followed by a specific word or phrase in the console, the game will display all commands that include that word or phrase.

This can be helpful when you can't remember the exact name of a console command you want to use.

In-Depth Description

The findcommands is basically a search function for the console commands in Europa Universalis IV (EU4). When you use this command, it will print all console commands to the game.log file which can be found in the game directory.

This function can be very helpful if you know part of the command you want to use, but not the whole thing. By using this command, you can identify the full command without having to guess or look it up elsewhere. Instead of scrolling through a long list of commands, you can easily find the one you need.

For players who use console commands frequently, this can be a very useful tool. It is also helpful when using mods, as specific commands related to the mod may not be easy to remember. The findcommands command allows you to find the right command without exiting the game and disrupting your gameplay.

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 .
