The reform command in Europa Universalis IV is used to start the Protestant Reformation in a certain province.

The Protestant Reformation is a historical period in the game that corresponds to the real-life religious shift that occurred in Europe during the 16th century.

In-Depth Description

The reform command is associated with religious matters within Europa Universalis IV.

It allows you to start the Protestant Reformation within a particular province identified by its province ID.

How it works: You need to type reform [province id] in the console command, replace the [province id] with the ID of the province where you want to begin the reformation.

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