Quick Overview

The command mil in Europa Universalis IV is a cheat code that is used to add military power to the player's nation.

When you enter mil into the game’s console, by default, your nation will receive an extra 999 military power.

This power can be used for various actions like recruiting military units, advancing military technology, or taking certain decisions.

In-Depth Description

The mil is the console command in Europa Universalis IV that gives military power points to the player.

The default value is 999, but you can specify a different amount by typing it after the command (e.g., mil 500).

Military power is one of three Monarch Power resources in EU4, along with administrative and diplomatic power.

These resources are used for various tasks in the game such as advancing military technology, recruiting generals, harsh treatment of rebels, or constructing certain types of buildings. These actions are all essential for running your state and waging war successfully.

This command can be helpful in scenarios where you quickly need to boost your military power, either because you lack the necessary points to accomplish a key action or because you'd like to considerably speed up your military development, bypassing the usual slow accumulation of points.

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 .
