How to use the add_equipment console
This guide allows you to quickly spawn equipment in game. This comes in handy when you're just learning the mechanics of the game and want to have fun. Create a new text document using word pad or similar software, then copy and paste the below into it:

*Note: Specified equipment must be researched for add_equipment command to work. Use the research_on_icon_click command to add technologies you lack for desired equipment.

A shortcut to add_equipment is simply ae. For example: 'ae 100 infantry_equipment_1'

To add modified equipment: Create a equipment variant. For example: 'Matilda LP'-tank with improved Armor and Main Gun and name it 'Matilda LP Mk. IV'. Now use 'add_equipment 1000 Matilda LP Mk. IV' or 'ae 1000 Matilda LP Mk. IV'.

This guide is current as of v1.10.2 Battle for the Bosporus

how to spwn ships

@Shizoid
Yes
Another great method would be looking at the equipment's name on the military production menu (the name in the equipment's picture, not the one above it)
So for reference, if I wanted 1k motorized, I would put "ae 1000 Motorized" instead of "ae 1000 Opel Blitz"
(Sorry if this was confusing I couldn't find another way to explain it D:)
ShiZoid Dec 31, 2022 @ 5:02am 
is it possible to find out the name of the equipment from the mods?
Granada Oct 8, 2022 @ 2:27pm 
with 'by blood alone' you just use the NSB tank format
