For information on how to make mods, see modding

Mod is short for "modification", as in modification of game files to change the functionality of EU4. Mods can be added to the game by placing them in the 'mods' folder. Where that folder is located depends on the operating system:

  • Windows: \Users\<username>\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Europa Universalis IV\mod\
  • macOS: /Users/<username>/Documents/Paradox Interactive/Europa Universalis IV/mod/
  • GNU/Linux: /home/<username>/.local/share/Paradox\ Interactive/Europa\ Universalis\ IV/mod/

It is crucial to install them in this folder, not in the Steam folder. Mods can also be downloaded from the Steam Workshop by subscribing to them. In that case, they will be automatically added to the mods folder and updated when newer versions are released.

The current version of the game is 1.18.4. It is possible to revert to earlier game versions as far back as 1.4.1 by accessing EU4's game properties in the steam client games list and choosing the appropriate version from the 'BETAS' tab. Mods are usually compatible with hotfixes to the main patches, as they bring only minor changes without breaking the code. For example, mods noted as working with patch 1.13 usually work with 1.13.x as well.

Mods dating pre-1.4.1 are noted as 'Currently outdated'.
