Quick Overview

The command reloadtexture in Europa Universalis IV is used to reload a specific texture in the game.

If you encountered a problem, bug, or glitch in the game's visuals, this command could be employed to fix the error without relaunching the game entirely.

The texture needs to be specified in the command.

In-Depth Description

The reloadtexture command in Europa Universalis IV is used to reload a specific texture within the game.

This is often used by modders or game developers who are working on the game's graphics, and players who want to refresh or fix some graphical glitches they are encountering.

When a player enters the reloadtexture command followed by the name of a texture, the game engine will wipe the specified texture from its memory and then immediately reload it from the game's data files.

This is helpful if you have made changes to the texture and want to see how they look without having to completely restart the game. It can make the process of fine-tuning a texture's look much more efficient.

This command is also handy if you're experiencing graphical glitches related to a specific texture that won't go away. By forcing the game to reload that texture, you may be able to correct the glitch without having to stop playing.

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 .
