In-Depth Description

The navy_tradition in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) is a cheat/debugging command that is used to increase or decrease a nation's naval tradition by a specific amount.

By typing navy_tradition followed by the desired value, it will add the designated amount of naval tradition points to the selected country.

Naval tradition is a statistic that represents the historical pride, aptitude, and training of a country’s navy. This value ranges from 0 to 100, impacting its navy’s power and effectiveness in the game.

High naval tradition leads to a multitude of benefits like improving ship durability, enhancing combat abilities, boosting morale, better blockade efficiency, and higher chance of capturing enemy ships.

This command can be handy under several circumstances. It can be beneficial when you're engaged in naval battles or when you need to leverage your naval power against other nations. By increasing your naval tradition, you can significantly enhance the strength and efficiency of your fleet.

Typically, the naval tradition is gained by various activities in the game, such as exploring unknown territories, winning naval battles, or protecting trade. However, by using this command, players can immediately increase their naval tradition without going through those steps.
