still a shitty meme mod
the mod drums up lore about how human tech is vastly superior across the board but horribly limited in number, but then gives them inferior tech to fucking Equestria
The ~60 years superior technology is only expressed by fucking +10% buffs, which most fucking nations in EaW wind up getting themselves, if not better
if the dev wasn't a mouthbreathing retard, he could have done the supertech by giving them lategame equipment, but a colossal malus to production and military research that can only be tackled after the refugee crisis is completed

I am new to HOI4.
I think I understand the planning and army systems.

Is it advantageous to just push with your soldiers using manual move orders, instead?
I much preferred the old school way of playing it and don't really like that my units keep shuffling around without my input.
>>
>>39334541
You should manually move tanks and use the battleplanner to push across the front with infantry.
>units keep shuffling around without my input
You can test the various unit cohesion settings on the left end of the order bar. I don't think they make a difference personally.
>>
>>39334541
Unit cohesion is exactly what you're looking for. Rigid cohesion will minimize shuffling around without your input. As long as you have the arrows drawn for a planning bonus, the more micro the better. In multiplayer they're basically unused, but those games aren't run on 5 speed. The usual compromise is to have whatever your nation calls cheap, defensive filler on autopilot and micro all your offensive moves. Not having one super tolerant cohesion level makes this more tolerable imo.

I hate how oftentimes in EAW (or any HOI4 scenario or mod) you reach a point where you've completed the focus tree and the narration just disappears into the ether.

Changeling Lands (Only Supremacy) is one of the few notable exceptions.

Yes, she made a major fuckup once and then spent a thousand years building and ruling the greatest nation to ever exist while also preparing for her sister's return.
Just because the show went on to beat her with the retard club (like it did virtually everyone) doesn't mean it makes sense or that we should follow what they did just because it's canon. The only way to square the circle that is Equestria being the most prosperous place on the planet while simultaneously having Celestia be an incompetent idiot is to have literally every other nation and ruler be even more incompetent and retarded because otherwise Equestria would've been conquered or overtaken many times over. That is obviously not what EaW has done. As such it cannot leave Celestia being the ineffectual buffoon she is. It must right her character.
>never pro-active
>she always lets Twilight deal with the issues
This is a gross oversimplification of what happened to the point of being slanderous. And that's even including later canon. Twilight dealing with the issues is Celestia being proactive because that is her doing, just indirectly.
>>
>>39339605
Celestia doesn't really do anything herself in the show... because she's not the protagonist. Twilight is. Having Celestia actively do things would take agency away from Twilight. This is fine for the show, but not for spinoff fan works. Granted, Equestria's content is also some of the oldest in the mod, the upcoming rework (TBA +2 weeks) might, hopefully, change things up.

Equestria, as a country, was pretty much a self suficient machine that could run itself
The princess had no real control over it
Face it, celly is completely incompetent as a strong leader
She is a peacetime icon, not a war winner
>>
>>39339916
>She is a peacetime icon, not a war winner
That's why Luna fights instead. And even then, on historical AI, Equestria manages to defeat the changelings with help from Stalliongrad and then the referendum ends with the princesses still being in power.

Celly doesnt win the war, the equestria people do

Why are you so hell-bent on bending over backwards to justify shitting on Celestia?
>allies

No.
>incompetent retards (yaks,changelings)
So your solution is to make everyone else incompetent retards, except not really as soon as you want them to stop being incompetent retards so that you can pull a threat to Equestria out of your ass.

What you are describing is China. Except if Equestria were really like you headcanon it being just to avoid confronting the fact that Celestia should be a good leader in any vaguely realistic setting then Equestria would be just as backwards and just as disconnected from the rest of the world as China was. It would be a technological backwater that newer, greater powers wanted into because of its large markets and novel goods.

Celestia is indeed not pro-active ruler. She is a deffinition of perfect an-mon King the way Tolkuen writes it where ruler servers as a unifing icon. I doubt that was show's intention. But making her pro-active just ruins what makes her character work. She should remain a largely figurehead role unless at war when she would take to the front like we see in episode when war with Sombra happens. Another example to this is also Jade Emperor from asian mythology.

Anyone got any tips for a newish player? I feel like I've got my head wrapped around the general stuff, but when it dives into the more technical side of things like division designing and shit, I feel I'm having a real tough go of it.
The few runs I've done so far of eaw when the great war hits, I've only either been able to hold the line for a long time before the lings broke through and SG and CE had to do all the offensive work (Equestria), sat at a river while Equestria and stalliongrad beat up changelings, and eventually I was able to push up with them "look ma I'm helping" (CE), and got pushed back at the border by Equestria (changelings).
>>
>>39343939
The best possible tip is to not topuch Equestrian continent until you get good and stick to Gryphon continent that has ton of low to mid difficulty nations

Equestria on Historical is a pretty good way to learn most systems, though the navy stuff might need some effort.

Gotcha, I'll be sure to check out the griffons next time I play. Is there any one in particular that's best suited for new players?
>>39343967
So my first game was Equestria with historical ai, and I managed to improve a little bit with army management during that game by reloading to about a month is so before Chryssi declared war, and changing my tactics, but i still couldn't do more than hold the line. I held it (what I felt was) really well at the second fortline, and the two gaps in the mountain by the plains and where canterlot lies, they couldn't, or wouldn't as was the case at the river forts, break through. But then I didn't have enough troops to cover the ass end of the mountain, and they slowly broke through there and pushed upwards, til stalliongrad sent some men down to help slow their assault.
How exactly should you run your construction in eaw? I know the general gist of civ factories make more factories, and higher infrastructure makes building faster, but I always feel like it takes forever to make factories, and that I'm always strangled on the civ, and thus the military end (especially with equestrias egregious consumer goods use before wartime focuses). Is there any general strat as to how long you should focus on upping infra and civ factories before you go military? And from what I've seen so far, do all nations have pretty shit infrastructure?
>>39344027
I will keep this in mind next time I play them, thanks. does this specifically only work well with CE or is it a general template for any country?
On the topic of division design, is there anything super specific for the mod, or does it work just fine using the meta div templates from base game? The only one I know off the top of my head is changelings want to stick infiltrators in every company they can, but I don't know the actual why of that other than everyone just says they're really good.
>>
>>39344441
>Is there any one in particular that's best suited for new players?
The Empire as long as you don't go for Lord Protector and commit regicide
River Republic is also pretty strong, especially on historical without anyone defecting
Wingbardy was plenty strong too I think?
You can play support to Equestria during the war if you go with New Mareland too
>>
>>39344441
It's best to go for focuses that give free factories. Civ factories take too long to produce, you're better just building military factories for supporting your logistics. As for ponypower, changing the conscription laws helps out a lot too. Use field hospital support companies, they help with combat losses since EaW generally has smaller populations compared to vanilla HoI4.
>>
>>39344441
Oh another thing, magical weapons are actually really good, as is shifting your infantry into mechanized infantry. AA helps with tanks early on since it has decent hard attack values too. Make sure you have a big surplus of trucks and make your armies supplies be mainly done by trucks.
>>
>>39344441
Countries with decent industry and relatively low ponypower benefit from space marines. Equestria has an almost bottomless pool of ponypower and takes a while to ramp up its military industry, so is better off doing the usual infantry divisions+medium tank divisions meta. A lot of Griffonian nations have to fight to survive from year 1 so also aren't prime space marine nations, but for example the major Riverlands nations are perfect for it.
The meta is generally pretty similar to vanilla. Race specific special forces are pretty much always superior to vanilla special forces, hospitals are better because everyone is low on population (though debatably still not worth it) the AI tends to build fewer planes so CAS is generally more effective than in vanilla. If you're a nation that's not going to be fighting in 1010 (Equestria need not apply) or are going to get a big spike in factory and population count around that date like any of the Herzland nations, consider getting magical weapons. They're more expensive both thanks to their higher production cost and lower reliability, but it's worth it and they only get better over time.

Some nations have decent infrastructure, but they're pretty rare. In general I don't think it's worth building more except in rare situations. Supply is best patched over with air transports, EaW lets you unlock advanced transports through the strat bomber techs (at least without BBA installed). Set one factory on transports at the start of the game and you ought to have enough. If you're still having supply issues make sure all your supply hubs near the front have trains running to them before building more infrastructure.

Air transports got nerfed HARD recently, they're really not worth using.

Should equestria be split into governates under celestia?

Elaborate.
>>
>>39345360
It already seems to be decentralized and you can see the differences of the regions in the civil wars, it's like a whole world of its own and it is just one unified nation, something tells me it should start a little more disjointed, still unified under the capital but divided under large regional governments to avoid it being a huge blob surrounded by medium and small neighbors
>>
>>39345371
Eh, it just seems like it's just somewhat similar to the US. Yeah the regions are very different to one another, but the only time it was more disjointed than united was very early on. Of all the issues with Equestria, I don't think it being a single government is one of them.
>>
>>39345371
Equestria is already pretty decentralized, with Princesses delegating a lot of powers to the Mayors who act as the Governors in the regions.
>>

>>39345341
I think the only one that really warrants it is the southeast. Everywhere north of Las Pegasus and Baltimare is 100% heartland Equestria. Part of the southwest's identity is wanting to be independent, so it wouldn't make much sense to have them start off doing their own thing.

7-2 is pretty much as good as always with regards to infantry. Engineers are pretty mandatory, as is support artillery. Mediums are engies+support artillery, 6 mediums, 4 motorized or 12/8. I think in vanilla or some other mods support AA is supposed to be mandatory but I'm not entirely convinced in EaW. Equestria specifically will want support AA or even AT in their infantry just to pierce Changeling tanks, but most Griffonian nations can do fine with next to no piercing outside their tank divisions.

Back in the day, you could deploy air wings of any size. From 1 plane to any size the airport could carry - I think. I always used 25-plane wings to get a good bonus from my aces. You could duplicate the wings in that air base, split them, and some other things. The new one limits you to wings 100 planes in size but allows you to create air groups that are basically army groups but for planes. There's some other features, but I haven't used the new system long enough to fully grasp it or find anything too tedious.

combat especially is an absolute mystery to me, I've figured out almost everything else in game but the combat feels like I'm trying to wrangle an AI that does its own thing, and I don't always agree but I can't figure out how to tell it not to, and I can also give manual orders but I'm not sure how that meshes with AI movement, and anyway what should I be doing other than selecting random units and making them push up

Focus Prio is generally
Coring>Reasearch slots/Ticking society improvements(there will be foci that gradually increase literacy, you obv want to do those quick)>Reasearch bonuses>Remove maluses from politics tree/easy wars/percentage manpower increases/conscription and econ laws>industry(this includes mil foci that give factories)>army bonuses

Army bonuses do nothing if you have no guns or pones to shoot them and research bonuses earn value over time. If you know political tree will switch your focuses, do the factory foci first, since they never go away.

Combat wise just throw the basic infantry on a frontline and try not to push with them on battleplan unless the advantage is overwhelming and you are just mopping the enemy up. What you basically do is go for encirclements with your attacking army - tank divisions and/or moto and/or special(usually racial) forces. Look at focus tree or doctrine at what to use. Generally you want them fast, so med tanks always work if you have industry.

>combat wise
So basically, let the AI do its automatic pushing with the map-painting order with infantry, and manually control motorized/armored infantry and light/med tanks. (Is med strictly better light or is it purely preference?)

Are there any major gotchas in things like division design or command assignment, other than division width? I know you're supposed to make them 10, 20 or 40 wide, with the balance being how many support units you can have proportionally (since it's fixed max 5 per division), so 10 wides will fit the most support companies on the battlefield. For the rest, or stuff like choosing commanders or how many different armies to have, is it just reading the bonuses and applying common sense or are there any other non-obvious must-knows?
>>

>>39360736
The game is pretty easy. I'm not the best at it, but I generally do ok. Here's what works for SP. 9 infantry 1 Arty divisions for line, with arty, aa, engineers, logi, flex(usually special supports like unicorns). Don't bother with recon unless it's the Light tanks. Field hospitals and radio are ok.

Don't sleep on AA and flame tanks are really
good if you can fit them in.

The biggest stumbling block is probably making pure tank divisions, you need to mix in infantry(moto or mech) for the org or something.

And for commanders it is mostly just reading bonuses, but you can do some game advancement(You wanna try to get two terrain traits to get adaptable, besides that just pick what you can, I don't get the system)

Like really the game in SP isn't very hard
>>
>>39360787
Do you really need AA when you dominate the air
>>
>>39361229
No but AA also gives you some piercing which is good against armor units. I think it's generally better to invest in AA rather than AT early game, but if you dominate air then you can also just go AT.
>>
>>39361269
This. I always try to put support AA in my units. It gives a little bit of everything.

On an unrelated note, is hippogriffia a nation a new player should stay away from? I wanted to try them out once I get a few games under my belt, but I'm guessing you need a pretty firm grasp on the air and navy mechanics? Air I'm pretty sure I've got the gist of it down, but I've got no clue how to run the navy.
>>
>>39364206
The first levels of mech come somewhat late and are slower than trucks. Mech improves quickly though and by the third tech is far superior. To the point where I'd bother to research the increased conversion speed techs if I'm going mech when I almost never do otherwise. As a Herzland nation you can usually time it so you start pumping out mech as soon as you've united the Herzland.
Hippogriffia is just fine as long as you don't play on Historical and set Wingbardy to go any path but Beakolini. Hippogriffia can seal club the two main participants in the NZW with its superb navy without much thought or effort but struggles against all three at once. It's possible but requires you to know how navy works, build dockyards and design more modern ships.

>>39364227
Mech being slower than trucks is less of an issue if you have no step back, since you can always just build a slower tank.
