In-Depth Description

Game state modifiers include things like penalties or bonuses, which can affect aspects such as population growth, economic output, military strength, stability, and many more.

How to Open the Command Console

In EU4, cheats are executed from the command console, a text box that you type commands into.

If your keyboard does not have that key, or pressing ~ does not work, try the following keys:

  • ~

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
