Quick Overview

The yesman command in Europa Universalis IV is used to manipulate the AI's response to player's actions or proposals.

If you enable (turn on) the yesman command, the AI will always respond positively to your proposals or actions, meaning they will automatically and unconditionally accept anything you propose.

This could be diplomatic actions, trade proposals, or anything else where the AI has to make a decision.

If you disable (turn off) the yesman command, the AI responses will revert back to normal where they make decisions based on their interests and circumstances.

In-Depth Description

The yesman console command in Europa Universalis IV is quite potent and useful for testing or manipulating purposes.

When this command is activated, the AI players will always accept diplomatic offers or requests made by the player, regardless of the circumstances or the nature of the request.

This means that whether you're asking for an alliance, begging for military access, proposing a royal marriage, or even if you want to demand their entire country in a peace deal, the AI will always say yes.

This can be particularly useful in circumstances where you want to enact a strategy that requires AI cooperation, but you don't meet the game's AI acceptance criteria.

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 .
