In-Depth Description

The province_modifier command in Europa Universalis IV is used to view or change the modifier values of a province.

When executing the command province_modifier you must specify a province ID and a modifier. A province ID is the unique identifier assigned to each province in the game, and the modifier is an effect that changes some aspect of the province.

The syntax of the command is province_modifier ProvinceID ModifierID. The Province ID can be found by turning on debug mode and hovering the mouse over a province, which will display the ID. The Modifier IDs are specific names for each modifier, such as manpower or income.

The command might be used to quickly alter a province's wealth, amount of manpower, tax income, etc., thereby changing the dynamics and outcome of the game.

For instance, you could use the province_modifier command if you need more manpower in a specific province to recruit more soldiers for an upcoming war. You could also use this command if you wish to increase the income of a province temporarily in order to gain more resources.
