Quick Overview

The reset_powerspend command in Europa Universalis IV resets the statistics for your country's power spending.

This includes administrative, diplomatic, and military power spends. Essentially, it resets the count of how much of each power type you've spent.

In-Depth Description

The reset_powerspend command in Europa Universalis IV is primarily used for debugging purposes. The command will reset the statistics for how a nation's monarch power (Administrative, Diplomatic, and Military) has been spent globally throughout the game.

When used, the game will behave as though no power has been spent on any activity, resetting all the stat counts related to it to zero.

These activities include things like technological advancements, building improvements, diplomatic actions, and changing cultures, among other things.

What makes this command especially useful is when you want a clear data view on powerspend for testing various gameplay strategies, or just for analysis, as it effectively provides a clean slate.

This command helps simplify tracking and calculation of how your power is being used.

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 .
