I read somewhere that its not possible to change faction heirs since its hardcoded in the game and can't be modded.

could be wrong though.

Ride your heir into an impoosible to win situation so he will die repeat as many times as needed...but no u cant choose, the only way even remotly possible is when the faction leader has a daughter and u have her marry a general if the current faction heir dies the married general will take his place (granted theres no other sons in the way but hell be colser)

If u think about it, it should be this way in those times the king was chosen by birth as divine mandate

Nope, you can't change your Faction Heir

You might be able to, using the "give_trait" cheat;

"Trait Factionleader
Characters family
AntiTraits Factionheir

Level Faction_Leader
Description Faction_Leader_desc
EffectsDescription Faction_Leader_effects_desc
Threshold 1

Effect Authority 3
Effect PersonalSecurity 3
Effect Level 2

Trait Factionheir
Characters family
AntiTraits Exheir

Level Heir_Apparent
Description Heir_Apparent_desc
EffectsDescription Heir_Apparent_effects_desc
Threshold 1

Effect PersonalSecurity 2
Effect Level 1

What you will do is FIRSTLY, get the name of the current faction heir, and type this into the console:
give_trait "nameofcharacter" Factionheir -1

Then get the person you NOW want to be the heir, and type in:
give_trait "nameofcharacter" Factionheir 1


(Untested, but hey! It's there! :D)

Wait ithe only problem i see with that is when you take away faction heir from one general, it will auto go to the next in line wouldnt it?

I wouldn't think so until the end of the turn, as generally a death is randomly generated at the beginning of a new turn, if natural... And then that triggers the new leader to be give the Factionleader trait, and the new Heir to receive factionheir. So it shouldn't automatically reselect a new heir. In theory...
