Python source code[edit]

Note : this page is the result of a parsing tool (that is, a script) which parses all event files in the event directory of the EUIV game. Comments, as they appear in the files, might have misspelled words from Paradox developers. To keep this list up to date I just ran a script on the files (it would be too cumbersome to keep the list up to date by hands).

TL;DR: if you correct the misspelling errors in this page they will be overwritten next time the script will be run.

You can find the python code used to generate this page here: User:Neitsa/event_ids_script. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Neitsa (Talk) 13:04, 21 June 2015 (CEST)

Events pages[edit]

Is there any quick way to get a page for each of the event files? It makes finding events easier and makes sure we've got all the events on the wiki. Dauth (talk) 19:00, 27 June 2015 (CEST)

You mean parsing events? My parser has support for parsing the event files. Almost certainly makes some mistakes, but it provides a good start. ~ Meneth (talk) 19:50, 27 June 2015 (CEST)
No I mean pages for the files by the relevant names such as AmericanRevolution.txt as American Revolution Events etc. Dauth (talk) 19:55, 27 June 2015 (CEST)
I'm not sure what you mean. ~ Meneth (talk) 19:57, 27 June 2015 (CEST)
On the main events page we have links to pages which contain the events Events#Lists_of_events. We should have pages for each different file in the events directory and without an exhaustive list we're not guaranteed to have every event. We already missed two from DLCs and I'm sure there are more. Dauth (talk) 20:02, 27 June 2015 (CEST)
Well, it'd be pretty simple for any editor to take the list of files from the event IDs page and create a redirect from each where the relevant page exists already, and noting down those that don't. ~ Meneth (talk) 20:21, 27 June 2015 (CEST)
I was asking for an automagic way. If none exists then manually it is. I may be able to get round to it soon. We used to have a community projects section, does this wiki have similar and is it used? Dauth (talk) 22:02, 27 June 2015 (CEST)
The closest would be Project:Work needed I think. It's linked on the front-page, so it does get used from time to time. ~ Meneth (talk) 22:24, 27 June 2015 (CEST)

Candidate for Deletion?[edit]

Why is this listed as a candidate for deletion?? It's very useful for anyone who uses the console but doesn't want to (or know how to) search through the game files. Even though many are outdated, even though the list is incomplete, it's still very extensive and useful. Barka (talk) 1:30, 7 November 2017 (EST)

This list is outdated. The other informations on the page are confusing and not helpful for the most readers. – Instead of updating the list, the event template has been changed to display event-ids. – Lillebror (talk) 07:35, 7 November 2017 (CET)
What help would do the event id without knowing what the event itself does? At that point you're simply triggering events until you find the one you're looking for. The main problem is not the page being old [last updated +2 years ago], but not informative enough. As been noted above, the template has been improved by Hairy Dude to display the id where it is noted. ~ SolSys (talk) 08:38, 7 November 2017 (CET)
