Quick Overview

The command reload_provincemap in Europa Universalis IV is used to refresh or reload the game's province map. This is typically used if changes have been made to the province map files and need to be updated in the current game session without having to restart the game.

In-Depth Description

reload_provincemap is a console command used to reload the province map in Europa Universalis IV. The province map is an integral component of the game as it contains the different areas you control and you can navigate on.

This command doesn't affect the gameplay itself, it's more of an administrative tool that developers use mostly for testing purposes, or when they are making adjustments to the game's mechanics or map design.

When you enter the command, the game deletes the existing province map from the system memory and loads it again from the game's files.

It is useful when some adjustments were made to the game's files related to the province map (such as modding) and you need to see the changes without having to restart the entire game.

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 .
