Quick Overview

The reloadloc command in Europa Universalis IV is a console command that allows you to reload the game's localisation files.

The localisation files contain translations and other localized data used by the game, such as the names of places and descriptions of events.

This command can be used if you've made changes to these files and want to see the effects without having to restart the game.

In-Depth Description

In Europa Universalis IV (EU4), the reloadloc command is used to reload the texts from the game's localization files.

The localization files are where all the in-game text is defined, including names of countries, events descriptions, dialogue, etc.

This command is extremely useful when the player or the developers are making changes to the game's text and need to quickly test them without having to restart the entire game.

While using the reloadloc command, you don't need to close and reopen the game every time a change is made in the localization files; the changes are updated and reflected in real time.

This command can be a real time-saver, especially during the modding or game development process, when you need to frequently tweak and adjust the text.

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 .
