Quick Overview

This command, reset_migrate is issued in the console in Europa Universalis IV to instantly reset the cooldown timer for migration.

Typically, certain tribal nations have to wait a certain amount of time before they can migrate again, but this command allows bypassing that waiting period.

The command is very useful for nations that have the migration mechanic, refreshing their ability to migrate immediately.

In-Depth Description

The reset_migrate command is a console command in Europa Universalis IV that reinstates the ability of your nation to migrate, disregarding the usual cooldown.

In the context of EU4, migration is a mechanic primarily used by certain nations like those under the North American tribe government type.

These nations are allowed to migrate to empty provinces, moving their whole nation a strategy that enables you to exploit more resources or strategically positioning yourself.

Normally, once a nation has migrated, it must wait for 5 years before it can migrate again.

Enter reset_migrate, on using this command in the console, it instantly ends this cooldown period allowing the player to migrate again immediately after the initial migration.

This command can be helpful when you want to move to a number of provinces quickly, perhaps to escape from neighboring threats or get closer to places of interest.

It's also useful to rapidly exploit different trade goods in provinces. This command would typically be used in situations where the regular migration mechanic is too slow or limiting for your strategic objectives.

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 .
