Quick Overview

The spawn command in Europa Universalis IV is used to create or spawn a specific unit type in a specified province.

You need to enter the unit type (in this case, western_medieval_infantry) and the province ID (in this case, Stockholm is presumably represented by 1) for it to function correctly.

In-Depth Description

Spawn is a console command in Europa Universalis IV (EU4) that generates a specific unit in a specified province. It functions through the format spawn [province id] [unit id]. The first parameter is the unit ID that you want to spawn, and the second is the ID of the province where the unit will spawn.

For instance, the command spawn western_medieval_infantry 1 will spawn a single unit of Western Medieval Infantry in Stockholm, whose province ID is 1.

This command is useful for quickly creating an army or reinforcing existing ones without having to wait for manpower to replenish. It can also be helpful in testing or experimentation with different unit types, as it allows for fast and easy access to any unit in the game.

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 .
