Quick Overview

The tribal_development command in Europa Universalis IV is a cheat or debug command that is used to artificially add tribal development to the country that the player is currently controlling, but only if that country is in a Native Council.

The command always adds 1 point each of administrative (adm), diplomatic (dip), and military (mil) tribal development.

In-Depth Description

The Europa Universalis IV command tribal_development is used to increment the tribal development level of a nation that is in a Native Council by 1 in all categories: administrative, diplomatic, and military.

This command adds incremental development in these categories: administrative (adm), diplomatic (dip), and military (mil), to the current country if it is in a Native Council. The development value for each level in all the aforementioned categories is always 1 and this can't be altered.

This can be particularly handy for players controlling Native nations, who wish to enhance their nation's development levels but may be lacking the necessary points to do so naturally. It can be used anytime during the game as long as the country is in a Native Council.

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 .
