In-Depth Description

The reformprogress is a console command in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) that lets you add Government reform progress to your country.

The default value it adds is 500, but you can specify a different number after the command to change how much progress you add.

The government reform progress in EU4 is a mechanic tied to advancements of your government system throughout the game. It allows you to reform into different types of governments and enact various bonuses and abilities for your country.

This progress is normally gained over time, but with this command, you can speed up the process.

This command can be quite useful if you want to experiment with different types of government quickly without having to wait for the reform progress to accumulate naturally. You can swiftly adapt to the game situation or trial different strategies that require particular government types.

However, this is a weighty decision as some reforms are irreversible, and you should carefully consider your future game direction before you use this command. The amount of reform progress needed for each government reform varies, so use the command judiciously to prevent unnecessary waste.

To use the command, type in reformprogress followed by the number of progress points you wish to add in the console command window and press enter. If you do not add a specific number, the command will default to adding 500 progress points. For example, to add 1000 progress points, input reformprogress 1000.

How to Open the Command Console

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

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