Europa Universalis Cheat

Q: There are plenty of cheat sites for Europa Universalis for the PC but what about the Mac?

A: Well personally I wrote a perl program to edit the save files but I guess you mean interactive cheats. There is a list of PC cheats here. On the Mac, you can use most of these by:

  • Pause the game (/)

  • Press control-F12 (this may be because I have mapped my function keys)

  • Type the cheat code (see below)

  • Press control-F12 again

  • Move the mouse

Note that the shadow window (from control-F12) will not vanish until you move the mouse.

Useful cheat codes include:

  • montezuma (more gold)

  • pocahontas (more colonists)

  • dagama (more merchants)

  • vatican (more diplomats)

  • oranje (max stability)

  • loyola (more missionaries)

That last code does not appear on most of the cheat sites but it is probably the most important. Remember that converting provinces makes them less likely to revolt...
