We've got quite a few ideas for Midnight Hour but we aren't sure where to put him.
>>
So does anyone have many opinions on the update to Old World Blues? They reworked the air-tree a bit, which is nice, but they kept the 'combat gliders' which are ridiculous. The change I find the most confounding is they split off parts of the Legion and NCR turning them into puppets lead by Launius and Oliver respectively. I think it's an attempt to balance them, but I don't see why you'd give all the early-game expansion part of the game to minor puppets.

Maybe have him as one of the Protectorate leaders of the Riverlands who believes Grover 6 is still alive, and that Ferdinand is hiding him from his rightful throne. Have him fight or integrate the other protectorates, then destroy Dawnclaw with the sheer weight of his facts and logic, then Gamer Time.

Or could have him be in the Crystal Empire and utterly convinced Princess Amore is still alive.

The Great War is meant to be winnable, but still a challenge. However, the CHN playstyle is very good for the player, who can micro, so to balance it, they give a load of shit to EQS to make them put up a fight. Basically, now it acts as if it knows you're coming and wants to kick your ass when you arrive, which is not how it is supposed to go.
The only way to win is to go 1009 attack. By 1011, they're practically unbeatable. Get maintenance companies on EVERYONE, and field hospitals too. You have less of everything, and by the time the war starts, you'll have a far smaller army guaranteed. Every factory building replacement guns is a factory not building guns for new divisions, or fighter planes, so you want your units to be as cheap to use as possible to sustain a tall army. This is why your tanks have to go. They're too expensive, and they can't grind the enemy down like you need. Build motorized instead. Give your basic infantry engineers as well for more entrenchment. Line and support artillery is recommended for when you push, and use the last support slot for infiltrators or some shit. Puppet Olenia, and use their troops to keep the coast free of marines, or free enough that you can send reinforcements over. The naval war is a lost cause, don't even touch the tree, you'll lose one of your admirals (both of whom are good) and won't get a whole lot in return. Your primary goal is going to be a bite-and-hold strategy, balancing losses of ponypower and equipment. You have enough of both industry and population to win the war, but if you have to start sacrificing one for the other, kiss your ass goodbye. You should be rushing focuses that give army bonuses, especially recruitable pop, and ones that give mils. Switch from Mobile Warfare to Grand Battleplan ASAP for extra planning and entrenchment. If you have LaRes, put spies on the border to shit on their planning bonus.
(1/2)
>>
>>36087914
Once the war starts, here's your plan:
You can't push them. It's like trying to shove your way through a mass of meat. What you can do is wear them down. Let them attack forever. Once they're averaging 33% strength or less, THEN push. If you start slowing down, then stop and entrench. Wait for them to get their strength up, then lose it all again on suicide attacks. I find that this is something they can't do forever, and you can push farther each time. This does mean that you're only ever a few weeks away from a major offensive, either by you or them, which is why you want to be cautious and numerous. You need every bug you can get fighting on the front, and encirclements and large front lines only benefit the enemy since you don't have tanks anymore.
EQS having 100+ mils is not rare, you NEED to hurt them. Get Vanhoover as soon as feasible. The All-Ponies Front has around half of its industry in a belt halfway into the nation, and Vanhoover is the only real factory zone on your side of that belt, so I hope you like it.
Set your plants to "Aggressive" for when you attack, but play super cautiously when defending. Build guard divisions to keep the coastlines clear, since EQS loves to naval invade you from behind even if they're losing in the front.
The war should take a few years, with around one offensive from you per year, but that's not a hard rule. Each offensive will last longer than the one before as the APF loses the ability to replace losses, combined with one spirit EQS gets with weekly stability and WS loss. It also pushes them over the edge so that they have more recruitable pop % than you, because the devs hate you.
And with that, you can have the slow and sure route to victory.

This rework is shit. Focus tree looks terrible and its even smaller and less interesting then before. I know a lot of things went from focuses to decisions or events but still... plus i woulndt say that lunar empire was high in priority list for equus. I understand that rework for equestria itself would take more time and effort (hopefully we also get more balkanization with it too) But Crystal empire and sombra for example need new big juice focus tree much more.

Imagine licking the boot so hard that you see no difference between lunatic Leninists/Stalinists and god damn democratic socialism, being so illiterate and blind to the issues of capitalism that any alternative must be a spawn of satan. Do you equate libertarianism with fucking fascism as well or some shit?

>>
>>36093187
That's a reason I specifically mentioned Marx. However, his spirit is still alive and animates the vast majority of socialist movements in the world today. The word socialist has become tainted by association (with good reason, looking at what horrors communism has wrought).
On the other hand, it means that any socialism that goes out of its way to avoid the moniker and the associations it brings to mind is probably alright

You have a bunch of focuses that either instantly declare war on them or give you a 30PP decision to declare war on them. Crystal Empire and Mareland get an event like >>36092726
where they can submit instead of war. For the civil war minors there's usually one flavor event/focus after you annex them.
There's no unique interactions with the puppets, they just get unique tags. Crystal Empire gets a unique focus tree, but that's nothing new.

So nothing else after that focus will happen ? This is worse focus tree then it was before...no seriously why did they do that.

>>
>>36095374
>>36095354
The original vision of the mod is just pony WW2, that was the original vision and now it's fanned out to have a lot more aspects, WW2 without a soviet union isn't WW2, also the mod was started by russians so that's why we got Stalliongrad.

Also the concepts of a command economy have existed a lot longer than Marx was alive, not saying they worked extremely well, but it's not insane to have a workers movement in a fantasy world.

But if your issue is with the very concept of a labor movement existing, then that is a separate issue.

"Anyhow, first Roam teaser, Kaiser Augustus Umqobi, or Augustus Kompelicus, the aged Kaiser of the Roaman Kaiserite, and the chosen of Inkanyambia"

Also I know as a fact someone is going to throw a fit over the zebras somehow having a rome themed thing, but there's a reason.

So the basic lore of Roam is this:

Two hundred years ago when griffonian merchants first began plying the southern coasts of zebrica, the Empreror ordered a large section of the Rouman Legion to assist in a punitive expedition to the continent, to find out what trade and commerce could be done there.

In the end, the small contingent of the legion struggled against the established Zebra states there and eventually got stuck. Out of desperation they pledged loyalty to a local zebra king, who was impressed by their strength, authority, and aesthetic. This formed the Kingdom of Roam. Since then Roam has struggled against other zebra states and griffon settler colonies in the region, along with the giraffes. But now, the King is old, in his 80s, with four zebras able to succeed him. His favored successor, his son, and three others.And so when he passes, Roam must manage this new age, the tetrarchy.

I'm not really complaining about the Rome theme, but it looks really odd to have them titled Rouman. Especially with the meaning behind Rouman the word.

>>36095864
Romau was built by Arantigos the great in EaW, and the city founded it's famous Romauan Legion, which then got stranded in what is now Roam, and then they stole the name.

Is it uncreative? Uhh, kind of. But it's not a pun so give us some credit.

>Also the concepts of a command economy have existed a lot longer than Marx was alive, not saying they worked extremely well, but it's not insane to have a workers movement in a fantasy world

well thats what i pointed out. Im not against some peasants/workers uprising for being oppressed by higher classes. But it doesnt need to be red hammers, sickles and basically almost everything just being copy pasted from real world with slight ponyfication in some names. Again, im not for complete removing of... some LookAlike "communism" ideology but just make it less mirrored to our "communism" You cant blame people for calling mods communist when you can clearly see that many of paths are just for larping and implementation of their utopian idoelogy without almost zero considerations that it takes place highly fantasy settings. Just imagine LOTR mod where suddenly Rohan without any reason become soviet union with names like Throckyden. No other fandom would ever think of making stuff like this. OWB is great example. Even when it takes place on earth so in theory they could get with communism much more easily they still didnt do that since mods arent retarded autist

And are those billionaires self-made men of the proletariat's finest? No, it's your Party officials and anyone who can get chummy with the Politburo Standing Committee. Much like how it was in Nazi Germany, you can "own" a business and make profits (so long as your nose isn't 1mm too big to be considered Aryan), the State can easily liquidate your position if you complain or are deemed "no longer working in the interests of the State." I'd argue that the Soviet Union was like this, too, where Lenin and his cronies took every opportunity to repress the peasants of Russia in the name of shoring up his power.

Can someone tell me how I can finish Viira's investigation
the button to check out the magic plants only appears after the ignition fight, but because the other pentarchs are dead, the investigation gets stuck at leopold's titan
I salvaged the titan for a body when I did the fight cause I assumed that keeps it intact, Am I supposed to salvage it for resources instead?


additionally, viira's supposed to have special decisions, but they don't show up ever, no matter what I do

I want this RPG ass shit solved

>win the titan fight
>finish the reactor, do the final focus
>side with viira and win the fight with 2000+ resources
You don't have to do the decisions to kill the other members after you beat the titan. If you do both, you will probably be under 2000 Viira resources which means everyone dies and you get a unique path for the count.
Also, focus on getting the first excavation tech early, as it's a requirement for one of the focuses.

Asking for a friend
>>
>>36115271
>decisions
The assassination decisions should show up at the very end, once Viira has already ascended.
>friends
I don't think their friendships matter, but I kept them all alive until the end. You might need Viira and Leopold to be friends to get Viira in the titan fight.
Did you finish the titan fight with both Viira and Leopold participating? There should be an option for Viira to kill Leopold when you choose a reward for the event. It might require you to have a ton of Viira resources for it to even show up.
>>
>>36115375
I have never had viira show up in the titan fight before, Friend or no friend, 2k resources or 0
What did you do that was different
By ascension, do you mean the Ignition focus? I've only ever gotten viira making a boss fight out of that, friendships be damned

looks like I was way off the mark on how close I was to completing it
>>
>>36115396
>What did you do that was different
If you've done everything right, Viira should mention something in her journal about helping Leopold to further her investigation. Off the top of my head, you need to:
>have viira investigate the cultists on the right hand side of the focus tree
>have viira observe the machine, but not turn it on the left hand side
>have leopold begin digging process
>do those little adventures where you have to click a button in state view, journal will tell you when
>have viira study plants at some point
>have the zebra finish building his temple?
>after all this is done, strike the earth
I recommend doing every focus that hints something like "this might be useful later" . I ended up doing every single focus as I had to spend a lot of time researching excavation 1.

>By ascension, do you mean the Ignition focus?
I think it happens immediately after the titan fight, but I don't remember. They are events that allow you to kill any living members for 1k Viira resources each. I could only do one of them without fucking up the ending.

We dont "hate" them. We just hate the fact that they have more content and focus from mods then ponies. Its kind of similar when someone spamming and showing down your

Also pic related how this make any sense. Rara is already leader of crystal empire yet story event shows her as her being in ponyville making dresses. Not sure if intense or something that needs to be look at by mods

But what can you say that will we get with equus rework. We know by now that atleast half territory of equus are not ponies so we only can talk about equestria or crystal empire. So we get even more countries being separate after civil war ? how many ? will they get several paths with end game focuses like hertzland and other gryphons has ? ... i dont know dude, after 1.8 update im a bit skeptical. 1.8 supposed to be THAT big pony updated ended up having only wittenland having good tree with bakara having a bit barren focus tree with other nations not really pony focused... yes we get longsword in 1.8.1 or now luna but still its nothing to compare to 1.7. or gryph nations. not to mentioned that you still working for more gryph reworks and small countries like talouse so that mean even more content for birds...You really need HUUUUGE plan for equus if you want at least catch up up to gryphs... If you want that of course...
>>
>>36117931
We cant really ever make equus ponies equal in content to griffons i’m afraid. Zebrica has some pony countries at least? But yeah at the very least equestria and crystal empire should be made on par quality-wise. That’s what really matters in the end. The breakaways were already reworked and are pretty fleshed out now.

Also, there’s the fact that a lot of the eaw playerbase aren’t bronies and are able to get into it thanks to the griffons. Hate that if you will but it’s just how things are. If we fully abandon non-pony furry shit people will get angery. If we fully abandon pony shit people will get angery. We can’t really do either and have to appease both parts of the playerbase, which is tricky sometimes.

also there’s the fact that the most productive dev is both a batfag and a griffonfag. That’s why lunar empire got a second rework lol
>>

>also there’s the fact that the most productive dev is both a batfag and a griffonfag.
So something /mlp/ was saying for years, that you are not really mlp fans more like furrfags kidnapping mlp brand ? I remember countless discussion on discord, here or on reddit prompted this as silly conspiracy. Also i think that most of your inner fans play as gryphs because you put actual work in them... If you made story with multiple paths and mid-end game content to dozens of pony nations, i think they would love them too...

in the end there is no hope for ponies to be number one in this mod at all ?
>>
>>36118087
>yeah about zebrica. did anyone really want giraffe or others super rare creatures
There were all kinds of wacky races, most of which have been cut. Giraffes are the last one remaining, really. Most other zebrica races are from canon (non-pony still, but variety is the spice of life, which we learned after making so many fucking griffoid countries)

>So no end game for them huh... interesting...
I didn’t say they will never get additional content or that they are done. Just that they’ve been reworked once already, with the exception of Celestial State.

>So something /mlp/ was saying for years, that you are not really mlp fans more like furrfags kidnapping mlp brand?

Lol fuck off, the dev team is not homogenous or a hive mind. For example ive personally watched almost every ep and read a bunch of the comics too, and i hate furries. Other devs have never watched the show and are literal furries. There’s different people with different interests.

>Also i think that most of your inner fans play as gryphs because you put actual work in them

And fuck no, non-bronies get triggered by an image of a pony. Have you seen some let’s players reactions to the mod when they try it out and aren’t bronies? They’re cringing to oblivion, and only start to calm down when they play non-ponies, like Changelings or Griffons.

>in the end there is no hope for ponies to be number one in this mod at all ?

Well the intention was never to make it only about ponies. However, Equestria should be the most fleshed out and expansive nation in the mod. Right now, it really fucking isn’t, but i hope we get around to fixing that one day. I wouldn’t say there’s no hope at all.

Shit i dont have map of zebrica races right now but i know there was even more races that where hardly even mentioned in show or comics like maybe lammas too and more.And its hard to believe someone actually want them, i thing much, much more people would prefer couple of more ponies or horses or at least kirins and yes i know we get some from but still hardly enough compare to beaks...

>So no end game for them huh... interesting...
Lunar or others end game content would be nice similar to herzzlend (new focus tree after capturing canterlot?)

>So something /mlp/ was saying for years...

But you said yourself, good portion of mods are furrfags. nobody said you done nothing pony related of course there is solid amount content and work put into them... but truth its that its not yours number one priority.

>Also i think that most of your inner...
No, they cringe at the name of the mod and MLP stigma itself... becuase mY liTtLe PonY lOl CrIngE meme. whether they start play mareland, lake city or gryph nations with actual rich and interesting content they get hook up. If you really thing that anthro gryps are somehow less cringe then pones you are seriously mistaken. Its content that change they mind not fact that they are other races then ponies.

>Equestria should be the most fleshed out and expansive nation
What does it mean ? more then gryph empire or gryph republic with gigantic focus tree and with some more to unlock ?I mean even when huge fanfics events (like changelings reworks has) are kinda nice, i thing most people would play nations with many paths and gigantic focus trees. Changeling are nice to play once or twice. But people still play herztland for it replayability more. Sure there some gryph fags that plays it only because they are gryphs but even ponyfags play those nations because they have not much choice after they play like 4 or 5 good pony nations
>>
>>36118833
>It's jealousy because Griffons being mostly OC meant the devs had a lot more freedom with them
You could have that freedom with pony OC, but as guy above you said, mods are furrfags and they use MLP name to make their furrfagotry fantasy into game... jesus christ just rename the mod already
>>
>>36118399
Not that guy, but honestly I'd say the issue with Equestria is that a battle between two big blobs is never going to be as interesting as the mad scramble between a bunch of different smaller nations who you can tailor to your own meme ideology, but at this point there's not really a way to change that beyond something super radical like breaking up Equestria into one central state with a bunch of puppets and that probably will never happen because it's way too much effort and too big a change.

She has a major role in the pre-civil war events with Luna. There’s even events about her being captured and about NMM ”convincing” her to help.

>>36118852
Llamas are a reference to Thems Fighting Herds. And more variety doesn’t mean more ponies. We don’t really care what ”people want”, we do what we feel like. If we did what majority of eaw community wanted we’d make griffon nazis everywhere (newsflash: this thread is a tiny fraction of the eaw community)

More lategame content for breakaways would be nice, I agree.

Fair enough i suppose. I was just countering your claim that we were all crypto-furries or some shit.

Ok lemme explain. Griffons and other non-pones work like a gateway drug. Non-bronies usually play them first, and eventually try out ponies. And sorry to tell you anon but ponies have a very strong stigma of cringe outside of the mlp community. Once the non-bronies get over the initial shock however they get used to it. In fact, ive seen dozens of people who started watching mlp or consuming fandom content (like porn) solely because of the mod. That’s why i feel like it’s important to not just focus on ponies. Of course, ponies in the mod still need more love, i agree with that.

And no i don’t mean more fanfic events. Reworked focus tree with more options, esp. an overhauled post-changeling war tree and a reworked fascist path tree (solar empire). It can’t be as diverse in paths as let’s say Angriver, but should have more depth than that country of course.
>>
>>36118865
There's one easy way to help with that anon
More breakaways is one part of that(please stick something onto the changeling borded, conquering it takes ages and by the time you get there there's no fucking enemies left) but a bigger thing would be pushing them all into combat earlier so instead of NMM/Daybreaker winning and mopping them up one by one it would be mad struggle against sixteen different factions at once
Maybe add some pseudo loyalty system where breakaways can work with one of big ones in hopes of getting to be an independent country after civil war is over

>tfw I played to many industry-poor nations and I haven't learned how to properly do tanks or air or naval despite having almost 100 hours in game
>>
>>36125860
for air, upgrade range to max first, then engines
attack is noob bait, and reliability only affects planes 1/100th as much as land equipment, making it easily ignored

air cover efficiency is "how many planes will actually be able to fight" so if you only have 50%, half of your planes do fuck all
this is why range is most critical, cause you need to ensure you have the entire region locked down, in addition to being able to reach areas with more planes

having higher agility than the enemy grants a damage reduction buff, up to a maximum of 60%, by maxing agility, your planes become that much harder to kill

air attack reduces both of these stats, all for a buff that is entirely negated if not outright negative by the agility DR%

I personally go fighters and tac bombers, so that I can dedicate all forward bases to pure fighters, and all rears to bombers
the cost difference doesn't really matter since you're going to be more limited on manpower than you are industry,, plus, tacs have jet variants while CAS does not, letting you use them into the late game without issue

Tanks are meant to be 40w sledgehammers
you use them to fuck a hole through the enemy line and encircle and annihilate divisions
you want as many tanks as possible, with motorized, or better yet mechanized, to bring the org up to at least 30
when building tanks, you want to max armour, to ensure the enemy cannot pierce you and remove your armour buff

for naval, just spam subs and naval strike their navy with bombers

So... uhhh. I saw Friendship With Benefits appear on Steam recently. Is one of you responsible for this?
>>
>>36128913

Okay, so what is it? An erogenous mlp game on steam?
>>
So this is the last time I'll ask about this HOI4 EaW modding stuff here, since most of you seem to do no modding of your own, and only play what others make, then complain that the people making the shit you're playing are commies. And the actual dev visits are too few and far in between to help.
Do ANY of you know why this icon shit happens with the question mark with custom icons? On the focus tree it's fine, but on the leader portrait screen it turns into this question mark thing. The question mark even happens on the focus tree sometimes. This happens with every single one of my custom icons.
My icons are either .dds or .tga, either way it comes out fucked up. The .dds comes out fucked up in the focus tree and shows up as a question mark, like in the picture. The Rarara focus in the picture is a .tga, pic related is what happens, it's fine in the tree but comes out as a question mark on the leader portrait screen.They're called properly in the national focus and .gfx file because they show up in the focus tree, so that's not the issue. Is there something else I need to do to call the focus tree icon and get it to show in the leader portrait screen?
>>
>>36128966
Yeah, it looks like a MLP eroge with the serial numbers filed off. The characters are pretty obviously cannon anthro/humanized ponies with similar names as far as I can tell; Butters the yellow mare with pink hair, for example. Also seems to rush pretty fast into porn, by the review.
>>
>>36129006

I mean, that's kind of why you're there, right?

>>36128973

I'm sorry to say you're looking in the wrong place for help, Anon. Really wish I could help you, I really do, but I'd recommend looking on the PDox modding forum or getting into contact with the EaW devs to see what the problem might be.

Yes I have in fact. Is there something wrong with the below code? I basically copied and pasted from an already working icon, then modified the appropriate lines. The shine effect happens in the tree, just not on the leader portrait screen, so I'm not sure why. I've been using paint.net for this stuff, should I be using photoshop or some shit like that?

The M1931 (designed by Walter Christie) reached 167km/h on a test circuit, although that relied on an easily removable tracks system, and the tank was working like a very heavy but regular-ish car with a bunch of additional dead wheels in the middle when traveling between battlefield - which isn't too absurd for a light tank intended to be able to deploy *really* fast, at the cost of sturdiness.
