Quick Overview

test in Europa Universalis IV is a console command that developers use to run a certain type of coding test.

In-Depth Description

The test command in Europa Universalis IV is typically used by developers or modders to run different sorts of tests on the game's code.

A user would type test into the console command line to activate it. What precisely this test does can range depending on the context, but often it involves executing a pre-determined set of conditions or actions to see how the game reacts, whether that be unit behavior, AI responses, or mechanics calculations.

This command can be beneficial in identifying issues with the game's core functionality, debugging problems, or ensuring modifications to the game function correctly. It's typically used during the development process or mod creation to test and validate changes.

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 .
