EU 4 Modding: How To Show Province ID’s, Country Tags With The Debug Mode In Europa Universalis 4

If you create a mod for Europa Universalis, it would be quite handy if you could see different parameters ingame like the Province ID’s, country tags and other things. This is possible with the debug mode in EU4. In this short article you will learn how to enable the debug mode in Europa Universalis 4.


First of all, we need to know how to open the EU4 game console. The command console is helpful as we can type in different commands that make our modding life easier. Once we opened the console, we just need to type in “debug_mode” and press enter. After we did that, there should be an output in the console that says “Debug Mode ENABLED”, now we can close the console. To disable the debug mode, you just have to type in the same command again and it would show “Debug Mode DISABLED” in the console window.


Now if we hover with the mouse over a single province with the debug mode enabled, the common small province tooltip that we know from EU4 will pop up but now it will also show us the ID of the province as same as the country tag. The debug mode is really helpful when it comes to modding Europa Universalis 4, I hope this will help you too.

    1. Did you type it without the quotation marks? Because you need to do that.

      Also make sure that you don’t have the sign in the console of the key you pressed on your keyboard. I mean the one you use to open the console. Happens to me all the time.

      I am pretty sure it’s one of the two issues in your case.
