Quick Overview

The set_base_production command in Europa Universalis IV is used by the player to directly change the base production value of a specific province.

The number you input after the command will become the new base production value. This affects the amount of goods a province produces and contributes to the overall economy of your nation in the game.

In-Depth Description

The command set_base_production in Europa Universalis IV is used to set the base production value of a specific province within the game to a chosen value.

In EU4, every province in the game has a set of economic attributes, including tax income, manpower, and production. The base production value of a province determines the amount of goods produced, and as a consequence, the province's trade value and income. By using the set_base_production command, you can directly alter this value.

The command can be helpful in different ways. For players who want to increase the economic output of their empire in a quick and precise manner, this command gives you an uncomplicated way to do so. It can also be handy to balance out the economy of your empire if you feel some areas are lacking production compared to others.

To use the command, you would input set_base_production [province id] [amount] into the EU4 console. Replace [province id] with the ID of the province you wish to alter and [amount] with the new base production value you want to set.

Here's an example: set_base_production 101 10. This will set the base production of the province with the ID 101 to 10.

Remember this only changes the base production and not the overall production, as several other factors such as development, technology level, building improvements, etc., also play a critical role in determining the overall production of a province.

How to Open the Command Console

Type your command into the console, and then press ENTER .
