Quick Overview

The lucky command is used to toggle the lucky nation status of a specified country.

A lucky nation is a term used in the game for certain historical Great Powers which receive bonuses to stats such as leaders, technology, etc., making them more successful than other countries.

By using this command, you can make a nation lucky or remove its lucky status.

In-Depth Description

In Europa Universalis IV (EU4), the command lucky is used to toggle the lucky nation status on or off for the selected country.

The lucky nation status is a feature in the EU4 game that provides specific advantages to certain AI-controlled nations to make the game more challenging for the player.

Such advantages include bonuses to trade, reduced unrest, faster technological advancements, better leaders, and enhanced defenses among others. This helps to balance the game and provide a tougher competition for the players by giving the AI an edge.

However, if a player uses the lucky command for their own nation, they can also reap these benefits. This can be especially helpful to beginners who may find the game too challenging at the start.

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 .
