Quick Overview

The nowar command in Europa Universalis IV is used to enable or disable Artificial Intelligence (AI) war declarations. When this command is active, the AI factions in the game are unable to declare war.

In-Depth Description

The nowar command in Europa Universalis IV is a console command used for toggling whether or not AI-controlled nations can declare war.

When this command is activated, the AI nations will not be able to declare war. This can be helpful in scenarios where the player wants peace across the world, needs to deal with internal matters without the threat of external forces, or wants to focus on diplomatic and economic growth instead of military combat.

On the other hand, if the command is deactivated, the AI will revert back to its original settings and can declare war as they are programmed to do so.

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 .
