Crazy shit coming out, post more toozers
>war game where you cant freely conquest countries if they are not on your focus treeparadox should be burnt
>>1248109why is Chaing Kei Shek leading heavenly kingdom?
>>1248186>trips to ireland>trips to spainfucking hilarious. what mod is this from?
>>1248099You know you can justify manually, right?
>>1248443You know very well that people don't see that as legitimate. They think that any deviation from the precious focus tree is an outlier, a deviation, something that is accidental rather then intentional.
>>1248253United no More
I can't tell if Thursdays base game hotfix will fix the issues being reported by EaW.It's a very annoying situation for everyone involved, I feel bad for the EaW team.
>>1248109promising and all but step up your gfx game alot of things in this toozer look blurry
>>1248443>>1248468you get nothing out of it, there are no cores in this game unless its on your fucking focus tree.
>>1248809Damn, I guess when I play as grossgermania in vanilla I should white peace the soviet union since I don't get cores on anything
if any mod teams are looking for ideaguys i am availiablet. has never played hoi4
>>1248924Holy shit! How do you want to be paid?How does 700K a month sound? What if I let you fuck my sister? Ah hell, you can have both!
which hoi4 leader would you fug?
I want a good WW1 mod, TGW and TGWR are boring with little to no flavor
What is this larpy shitGive me fully fleshed out historical paths!
>>1248110>Kronüng>GFX taken straight out of Kaiserreich>when said GFX shows a soldier wearing a Pickelhaube even though your Germany doesn't include Prussia
>>1249630Burn it down, Duce!
>>1249630Does it have a focus tree? I love stupid meme mods but if it's just some buffs I ain't gonna bother
>>1249435Pickelhaube is not prussian invention
is Kaiserreich any good I am brand new to Hoi4
>>1249756Play vanilla first and learn how the game operates before jumping into any mod
>>1249765It is all a bit overwhelming should I play as Canada and just sit it out and learn the mechanics or some neutral cunt like Sweden?
>>1249756Nobody here can stop you from playing it. Only you can determine if you will like it. Though like the other anon says, first play a round of vanilla before trying out a mod that shuffles everything.>>1249728>The Pickelhaube was originally designed in 1842 by King Frederick William IV of Prussia,
>>1249773I only bought HOI4 because I heard you can play as this guy in Kaiserreichhttps://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roman_von_Ungern-SternbergI got all the DLC from the rin.ru though
>>1249767>non-neutralGermany is a good pick because it forms the center of the vanilla game, with a good industry, military and tech. >neutralAny nation will do.
>>1249792Ok, thanks for the answers.
>>1249767Pick Germany first, you need to learn how the protagonist of the setting operates before you try anyone else. Learn how armies work, units, production, air wings etc. Then jump into KR.>>1249789You may want to get the mod kaiserredux instead, he is no longer the Mongol khan larper from before in original kaiserreich. In kaiserredux he is left fairly untouched.
>>1249798I was hoping to learn the mechanics on some place and then have a full >ugh what should have beenrun as Nazi Germany but yeah, I will give them a shot. Thank you for the tip on Kaiserredux as well. Found it on the steam workshop and just reading about it now.
>>1249773>>The Pickelhaube was originally designed in 1842 by King Frederick William IV of Prussia,Glad you being honest and don't omit the second part...>perhaps as a copy of similar helmets that were adopted at the same time by the Russian military
>>1249801Really try both mods, they compliment each other well. KX has a better russia but KR has the better China.
>>1249795I've never been through military training but I've always assumed the *joke* is is how she points a (presumably loaded) pistol at her stomach. No idea what's happening here.
>>1249823It is her rifle. The joke is she is managing to point two guns at herself. >>1249819I think for now Russia and China are far too big haha. I have many hundreds of hours in Ck2 and EU4 so I will get to them at some point.
>>1249007>East Indies focus tree>annexing Timorfucking kek
>>1249805Point is, it only became popular in the various German states due to Prussian influence, so this is just plain laziness.
>>1248110>germany without Prussia>nonsensical flag>misspelled german names for focuses>"Era of Great Peace" but WW1 happened anyway

Hoi4 modding is pure undiluted mental illness i'm glad I left that behind
>>1250893Making an event that says "kill da jooz" is not modding
https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=7wVZr6evIEIpost russia unification super events
>>1250850>Attempted to maintain 1.11 peace conference behaviour for AI countries.Man
>>1251011I was looking for some custom events and superevent videos, preferably long ones, anything more /vst/ could give?
>>1251142are you making your own custom super event or something?
>>1251169No but I find the effort some people put into the stuff fascinating
>>1251697You probably could just type in "super event" into youtube and get a compilation. If you wanted one for a specific setting then go on reddit and search for it.
>>1251710I'm just asking for quality stuff that anons here like, I could be searching for mods in the workshop but we still all choose to discuss them here
Now this is power...https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=2883368342
>>1251723I find "fan made" super events to be fairly low quality in general. Unless they were actually spawned in game it is a low effort waste of time. Cold War the Iron Curtain has a handful that are well done and tasteful. They are on youtube.
>>1251750tno bros... they are stealing our only gimmick and beating us to it...wtf... it's over...
I'm high as shit and I don't know how i got to this thread. What the fuck is going on?? What am I looknig at?
>>1251960Yo FR tho, 15 w ay civil war between May, Khan, Blair and the Queen (RIP)?? You guys gotta be more high than I am lmaooo
These fucking Kaiserreich niggers I swear to God.>add Assyrian focus tree>rework Bhutan focus tree>rework Sardinia focus tree>Spain hasn't been touched in 5 years>Germany hasn't been touched in like 5 years>India rework has been memory-holed>Russia rework has been memory-holed>Commie France is still fucking boring
>>1252027Reminds me of EAW. I love it, but they still haven't reworked EQS.
>>1252027>smaller countries take less time to reworkWow how fucking surprising
>>1252215They were supposed to start that after they released Zebrica, no toozers so far
>>1252255They have someone working on the Polar Bears who's been going insane on their focus tree, nothing else so far though.
I want to make a realistic mod covering the base game with events and focus trees for stuff like the SS, Holocaust, deportation, special projects etc. How do I learn to mod?
>>1252517Iron Workshop's tutorials, while sometimes out of date and verbose are a generally agreed good source of information. After that just go to the wiki, look in the modding sections, dig through the vanilla files for what you need, look at other mods code if you need something very specific and you will be fine. If someone tries to sell you estrogen or hormone blockers tell them to fuck off, that isn't needed unless you are doing a full overhaul.
>>1252517you just know this poster is some brown mexican or brazilian kid with a complex lol
>>1252517>realistic mod>the holocaust *roll eyes*
>>1252622KEK!Someone put this on r/4chan
>>1252255There's this one at least
I can't believe I just got filtered as KR germany in normal difficulty.I never managed to get air control in france, I'm ashamed of myself.
>>1252590what complex would a mexican or brazilian have? Against the spanish or portuguese maybe? Very bizarre post
>>1252027Probably one of those things where it'd be a project so big compared to all these micro nations, everyone's too scared to rip off that band aid
EIGHT YEARS WAR OF RESISTANCE GOT UPDATEDFUCKYES
>>1248443You can, and you will start a world war doing so. focus wargoals generate no tension and won't make the target get guaranteed, they are also faster in most situations. They are intentionally worse because they don't want you leaving their intended on-rails ride.
New Iron Grip™ toozer, this time featuring Iberia from the Europa Universalis™ Series.
>>1253058Bonus track, this abomination from Franco's Republic.
>>1253060>>1253058This is terrible - Why did you make Franco republican?Almost as bad as Poland not being fully annexed
>>1253103Before the war he was courted by both sides, we elected to have franco and rojo (the only reason why the republicans lasted as long as they did) switch places to freshen things up in what has become a very, very stale section of the world. Internally Franco was causing problems as is, his personal views on politics and economics and the "convenient" deaths of alternative nationalist champions led to Spain being a very one trick pony, you could have any color of Spain that you wanted, as long as it was authoritarian and Franco was still in charge. We wanted the ability to give Spain a king (both carlist and alfonsist), we wanted falangists (as in actual falangists, not Franco's sycophants), we wanted to have conservative catholics, we were given a choice either keep Franco and keep running into brick walls or give players a choice. We chose to give people a choice, as for why not just kill general Franco? That would be petty, and why not add a little bit of irony for the generalissimo.
>>1253125idk man republican franco and omsk yan xishan just feel weird and too memey
>>1253198Sometimes things should be taken at face value and be seen as serious, some things should be seen as us taking the piss at others point of views for either fanboyism, lack of understanding context, or just because things deserve ridicule. A lot of ideas were born out of memes, some anon in a thread mentions something that sounds like fun and we think "That's beyond retarded, lets do that." Meanwhile some other anon in a drunken rampage writes an 8 post long tirade on "why warlord Russia is the dumbest thing ever and partisan warlords make no sense." so we listen because it's interesting and informative.
>>1253058Black background is extremely monotonous, you should use something more colorful like those guys >>1248109
Thoughts on the fire rises? They have been streaming actual gameplay twice, one time by devs and the second time by a russian hoi4 youtuber
>>1253254it's shaping up to be one of the best HoI4 mods. I like everything about it, from aesthetics to design principles. The only question is whether or not they'll stick to said principles.
>>1253254>unite the dissident righthow can you guy unite a vast different groups of people like Nazi, Fascist, Nazbol, Tradcath, Luddite, Esoteric Traditionalist, Neo-Reactionary, RW populist, Monarchist, Libertarian, Anarcho-Capitalist and etc.???I mean I always like the ideas of united right wing front but I think that's too impossible.
>>1253259Majority of those are meme tier really but they mostly intergrate the National justice party into their ranks.>>1253257Oh they will, one thing you will not see is TNOid narratives where they tell you should feel bad for playing a extremist faction or removing war in a war game, there will be flavour events but you can disable them, i can say it's fun working with them and i have high hopes for it actually releasing
>>1253279I don't really get the american colapse mods, is it something that Americans really want to play?
>>1253292collapse mods in generally seem to appeal to people bc its starting to be relatable, as for this mod, well alot of americans like it
>>1253292I like collapse scenarios because playing a small country that becomes big (especially backed by a narrative about reunion) is more fun than playing a big country that maybe becomes slightly bigger. TNO Russia would have been great if it wasn't TNO.
>>1253279do you think TFR will overthrow TNO and its shitty narrative once and for alll and bring us into new hoi4 game+narrative direction?
>>1253336Yes, we favour gameplay over narrative and i think with the evergrowing fatigue of TNO-styled mods that TFR will become a big boy mod, there is still narrative but its an optional flavour (pic related: lead dev FAQ)
>>1253058Props for portraying Jose Antonio like he was irl, many mods just make him evil fascist #4729the bold and brash icon looks too out of place, you should replace it with something elseYou should also work on unique mechanics to spice the game up. i.e: make factionalism and resistance a mechanic and give to their natspirits unique effects that interact with them, rather than the boring -30% stab or -5% org
>>1253246We are trying to find something to call our own, for the longest time we didn't do teasers because we felt like they were annoying and people didn't like them (still think we are right) so we have yet to find something that says "us".>>1253388The idea is that the actual power struggle is based on map/territorial control. Different regions have their own loyalties that are shown on the map (carlists, the members of the triumvirs, the 'small nations' etc) over the course of a normal Spanish game, you press some buttons, move some troops, and a region will flip to your faction's control. It should be easy enough to that you will always get the guy you want since only you can move troops around to intimidate the opposition. As for Mr. Rivera, the guy had a very short and easy to digest 27 point program, I cannot see an excuse to not at least take a look at it. Why not at least make the effort to differentiate National Socialism from Fascism, and at least make the effort to make classical fascism, national syndicalism, and integralism at least somewhat different, if not in gameplay terms then at the very least some events to show how you are different from the other guys.
>>1253438how much percentage is the mod currently finished?
>>1253279TFR is backed by the UC deep state organization it can never fail#UC2024
>>1253259Shut the fuck up you political compass addicted retard
>>1253645>political compassrent free
>>1253446There were a few hurdles that we had to overcome and honestly our current effort of bringing an updated demo to steam has ballooned into something that I am not too proud to admit. We have managed to sneak in work for the important countries when he have had time, Italy is close to halfway done but it has been only one Italian guy working on it without much pause, Germany has been adjusted multiple times (it started off with a very marxist professor tint "super corporations, capitalism in decline") but it is about a quarter done and now actually properly looks at national socialism from a non-marxist standpoint (again a lot of time has been admittingly spent on nations that we felt did not really need content but were requested by voters) Speer at the moment is the most finished but it is unlocalized and not fit for public viewing as is Bormann. The United States has been put on hold simply because the main character of the story (Germany) should dictate the pacing the setting, and until the main character is done, other nations are just a waste of time. TL;DR about a quarter done, but we wasted a lot of time on stupidity
>>1253652When you get called out for being a meme addled retard so you reply with another meme before shrinking away
>>1253698Go back to whichever hole you came from.None of that was a meme whatsoever.
>>1253703>spastic 12 year old unable to think in anything other than Reddit “ideologies” telling people to go back lol
>>1253125>to freshen things up in what has become a very, very stale section of the worldThis is the fucking problem with redux fags, people just want what was already done, done wellBut you can't put your ego aside, so you make these stupid meme changes no one wants.All you had to do was make a Franco Spain that was fun to play and did not have historical determinism on, and you fucked it
>>1253727you're like 12 years off lmfao
>>1253963We are not a redux, we never had to do with any redux, if you want a fun Francoist Spain it has been done much better by other people, there is nothing we could have done to add to the conversation.
>>1254027>done much better by other peopleWho?
>>1254009you were born yesterday?
>>1254033Vanilla and TWR are all serviceable enough. Sure you can throw a "That's not real Francoism" allegation, and you may be right but Franco had no real ideology other than "I dislike women, I dislike the modern world, I dislike democracy, I dislike liberalism." which he still keeps, the only that changed is the color of the flag. He is still going to meme on the basques, he is still going to scream at women, he is still going to be the same old bitter old man that hates communists. Franco's Republic is a sham, something that is propped up by American capital because the US will only do the right thing when all other options are exhausted.
>>1254052other way around dumbass
>>1254072yes obviously lol are you on the spectrum
>>1254074I take emergency calls for such a city. diversity and cultural richness are terrifying
>>1254081How many of these Le Epic Based Ruralites are just scared little white bois who live in quiet suburban commuter towns and need mom to drive them everywhere lol
>>1254093i dont know
>>1254093I see you've branched out to HoI4 after vicky 3 flopped
>>1254074I prefer the term serviceable because everyone knows that the game is bad, it's mods are bad, and we are all just here to see how worse it can get.
any mod drama?
>>1254432TNO purged itself again
>>1253279>National justice partyIsn't it lead by a jew and a nicaraguan? How is that not meme shit?
>>1249007already looking better than most of vanilla trees who didn't even update their icons to the ones from the new patches
>>1249948blame the Aussies who invades it first during WW2
>>1253343I don’t really like the way NATO war work in TFR to be honest>If russia win as commie then europe turn fascist>If russia win as liberal(*RW populist) then europe turn commie>If russia win as conservative then europe turn ???And vice versa I feel like it’s too much restrict in term of path imo but hey you do your, it’s not my mod.I onow that there’s a secret Dugin/Fascist Eurasian path that the devs won’t tell how to get but my question is ‘are we suppose to get it before or after the NATO war if russia lose?
>>1254604*knowalso how come there’s no Ukraine content in the first release when the whole point center around ukraine and russia more?
>>1254484The difference is that the NJP is an actual political organisation, the other things that anon was talking about are ideologies that don't have much presence in real life, only online.>>1254604We might change that, there has been internal discussion about that its restrictive, but we'll see where it goes, as for dugin i can't say much except that if you lose as russia you should keeo playing>no ukraine content despite it being the center around itThe american civil war is the center of the mod and the rest are the effects it has on the world
So what happened with the star wars mod? Is it dead?
>>1254615good but what about china and east asia contents?you guy haven’t been toozing a lot about them right.
>>1254615why is Gunter the guy who keep posting TFR is dead copy pasta?
Didn't pay any attention to the BBA release cycle. Was it shit? Is it still shit?
>>1254629China will have content and we intend to tease them soon, we're redoing the gfx for their starting tree since our quality has greatly improved, but yeah future teasers will be more focused back on the US again>>1254630Some rando, gunter is a the janny on the server
>AI still loses hundreds of thousands in the med>AI still can't invade norway>AI still wastes research slots on armored cars>AI still loses libya in the first month of the war>still no cap on plane spamBut hey at least ENG spams spitfires like I'm fucking playing expert AI.
>>1252027Welcome to modding. Plans for minor tags are super easy to push through and do. While if you try doing a major you start getting bullshit drama, every tiny choice you do being questioned. Shit just slows down hard.
>>1253058Looks amazing, but republican Franco gives me some uncanny valley vibes, lol.
>>1254615Still don't get the "crimea occupation zone" cope
>>1254655How does modern day division and combat doctrine work?There’re tanks, infantry that we know all know of but what about helicopter? and land doctrine?
>>1249416So, how many/which faction in United No More is going to get full content in 0.1?
>>1251142https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JcZwPxIiOAsTell me, which side are you on?
>>1255468>yockey>not IMPERIVM OF EVROPA or FAUSTIAN IMPERIUM>instead it’s some anglo islandshit video
>>1253254I'll make a judgement when, if ever, it releases.
>>1253336Jeez suck their dicks more, what a lap dog.
>>1254615Why isn't crimea not directly annexed into Ukraine? its only been taken for like 8 years
>>1251142https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=tV_FOVnK6Jckino and literally better than most actual super events
haven't played this game in ageswhat are some fun mods to play if the only nation i ever play is japan
>>1255848rf japan has you early on in the game beat beiyang goverment or fail into civil war between red and monarchist.
>>1255849what's the point of divergence? also have any good OT WW2 mods come out? remember calm before the storm was one, did this even release?
>>1255859>what's the point of divergence?May 27th, 1905, in the Battle of Tsushima during the Russo-Japanese War. The Russian Navy avoids destruction due to a minor mistake from Admiral Heihachiro and a clever maneuver by Admiral Kolchak to save the remnants of the conjoined Baltic and Far Eastern Fleets. Russia then sues for a more favorable peace in Portsmouth, with a division of spheres of influence in Manchuria.
>>1248091what mod is this
>>1255932Long and Happy life.what if Nazbol / Eurasia take over russia?and dead mod
>>1255933the mod's not dead. The devs streamed their progress a while back in their Discord and I got to watch a little bit of what they were doing with UK.I'm not gonna name any specifics, but it was fucking insane. It's still raw as shit and it won't ever be as flashy as some other mods, but the ideas that they're putting into this thing are just completely unfettered.
>>1255938wait really?well good to hear, but still I wish more ruskies were contributing to this mod.
>>1255848play eight years war of resistanceunironically the best mod for the war in asia i've ever played
>>1256037don't reply to my posts when I'm in the bathroom.
>>1256038Notify us when you go

Which hoi4 jewtuber do you hate the most?For me it's tommykay
>>1257164Tommy is the only one I like but I fucking hate his editor. Markoni puts way to many shitty memes in the videos. Tommy is completely correct to call his youtube viewers plebs. I hate all the English ones.
>>1257089Isn't this the third kr4 poland rework
>>1248092What mod is this?>>1253254>Thoughts on the fire rises?Yeah, when's it going to be released on the workshop?

I never want to sacrifice my life for someone awesome as this dude
>>1257446It's going well, redoing some tech trees and I am mostly trying to avoid filler for the sake of filler when it comes to techs
>>1257089They took realism too far.
>>1257445>Red Flood is not even finished>already got a spinoffwhy?
>>1257514well first thing first the setting is interesting and the fact that it isn’t finish in the first place left many rooms for fans to interpretation on how or what the world would look like. Current there’s submods like Anime Flood, Dina (india warlord)’s Anarcho-Primitivism path, China warlords submod, Mussolini’s space program (taking directly from “Fascist on Mar” video), Esoteric Reactionary america submod that I forget the name and then there’s Judgment Day made by fans that is trying to revive the early spirit of RF… wacky people doing wacky stuff.RF is like yume nikki of hoi4 modding it’s a niche mod by hoi4 standard and not everyone gonna like it but it have its own little community that make contents surrounding the mod.

>>1254615>>1254655I keep seeing this mod in threads. Is it already a thing or not?
>>1257784it'll probably be out within six months, tops. Here's a new teaser they posted today.
>>1257787is the focus on the US and Russia or will the EU countries also have major content?
>>1257802this is what they're going with for the first release. It is my understanding that they're going to add stuff for some other countries later.

I am so bad at this game. I did everything some youtuber did with germany step by step and UK still came in west of a keel canal and took over western germany
>>1258593Try again, acknowledge where you went wrong and start again. If the British naval invaded you then have some forces on stand by to garrison the ports, have some mobile divisions to act as rapid response. Try to keep air superiority in the channel and the seas. Try again and learn from your mistakes, when you get over the initial learning curve in any hoi game it becomes much simpler and easy.

"One day my mortal body will turn to dust, but the republic will stand forever."-Mustafa Kemal100 years ago today, the Republic of Turkey was recognised as the sole legal government of the country. 108 years ago today, the Ottoman Empire declared war on the Entente, signalling their entry into the Great War. For the Hundred Years of the Republic of Turkey, the Red Flood team brings you this teaser foreshadowing the start and end of a peculiar civil war in the remnants of the Ottoman Empire.@Bourgeoisie @Petite-Bourgeoisie

>>1264490It takes a grand total of 15-20 min to do a single portrait in ideal conditions. Yeah those minutes add up but using photographs of people can just be a stylistic choice or a skill issue.

and playing a hoi4 mod known as TFR (The fire rises) on my desktop computer. After 9 pm my mother came to my room and told me to quit playing The Fire Rises™ and go to sleep since it was my bedtime. I as a sinister individual didnt comply and waited till my family went to sleep and i booted up The Fire Rises™ but something was different. The Fire wasnt Rising™ instead it was replaced with a skull similar to those nazi skulls ukranians have on their uniform. This creeped me out a bit but i didnt think much of it first. However after choosing my nation to start playing The Fire Rises™ my game froze for 69 seconds. I picked Honduras (my home country) to play but since it was the first time i picked it i figured the game lagged out a bit. But then i saw it. The screen was filled with blood and there were letters in middle that read "I AM ALIVE". Then an almost deafening sound started looping and i threw away my headset. After no time the text on the screen was replaced with images of Serbian war crimes in Srebrenica. I had no idea what was happening and i thought i was behind hacked and maybe even trolled. I yelled "THIS IS NOT FUNNY" then the screen read "the fire will rise for the last time" and knockings started to happen on my window. I was afraid to pull away my curtain to see what it was and i fled my room to my parents bedroom but it was locked. My parents usually lock their room when im playing The Fire Rises™ to have "hot business" as they call it. But there was a foul smell coming from their room now. I tried running away from the home but the door was locked and key was nowhere to be seen. Then it happened... The Fire Rised in the kitchen. The house was engulfed in flames in mere seconds. I ran to my computer to communicate with whatever this madness was. I screamed at my computer: "STOP THIS I DONT WANT THE FIRE TO RISE ANYMORE" then the computer screen replied "hh von der pax fauci" and it was over.

Any tips for KR germany? I can't seem to find an updated guide.
>>1266282Do the focuses in the order that let you do the political tree first, which in return will improve your economy. As usual, focus on tank divisions, research medium tanks as soon as feasible. The other most important thing is to produces fighters. The international forces usually have thousands of fighters and bombers you'll have to counter.Once the war with the international starts just do the usual schlieffenplan, attack from flanders-wallon into northern france, encircle, encircle, encircle and so on. After beating france the game is over because nothing else can beat you. It's also possible to rush russia as early as 1938. Just guarantee the caucasus countries once russia plans to expand there, sometimes they'll still attack. Russia is hilariously easy to beat most of the time because their units starts with minimal equipment and instead of waiting for it to replenish the AI usually just deletes all divisions. In some germany games I've played the russians didn't even field 100 divions. If you defeat the russians before the french attack, beating france will be a cakewalk

Do you know an impactful hoi4 alt-history mod with genocide?I've been researching for an hour, but nothing is quite explicit enough.
>>1268705uhh debatable.I would say that the German empire is the protagonist in KR due to how much the world revolves around them. 3INT can’t be protagonist, they are more like Terraria corruption that spread around the world bringing revolution everywhere, Entente is sideline in the background waiting time to strike the same way as Savinkovist Russia wanting to take revenge against the german. Chinas and japan don’t count either.>>1268707>Entente vs Russialame… for me it’s either 3INT vs Moscow accords (two extremist ideologies fighting each others) or Entente vs Reichspakt (closer to OTL timeline but it’s New democracy vs Old monarchy)Entente vs Moscow accord is just modern day equivalent of NATO vs Real life russia and that’s just terrible.

How do I git gud in vanilla GoY$? Every time I attack France and the Soviets as Germany I get bogged down. My air force gets decimated and half of my states get constantly bombed. Resistance keeps increasing causing even more problems. My templates are apparently trash? I use 9 inf + 3 art for infantry divisions and 6 medium tank + 6 mot for tank divisions.
>>1248091Why are mod teams always surrounded by drama? Is it ego thing? I was just reading old posts about panzer leaving TNO and it seems he would start drama with anyone he didn't like and then kick them off the team. Only mod that i think went big and had no drama is equestria at war
>>1270123>Why are mod teams always surrounded by drama?Hoi4 attracts political activists who shill their favourite ideology. They get very upset when someone has different opinions
>>1270092Why are you attacking France and Russia at the same time? If you air force gets fucked, make more planes, put like 10 mils on fighters at the start of the game. Shit them out like crazy.>I use 9 inf + 3 art for infantry divisionsThose are fine attacking infantry divisions>6 medium tank + 6 mot for tank divisions.Make 30 width tank divisions
>>1270123It's absolutely provoked by the crash of the egos. Three days ago mod I was part off fell apart. Two people that didn't like each other from the outset started to pull in more team members into their drama through the months. It was killing our team already, but now it reached the boiling point, our Git got deleted and it's all over. Little more than a year of work down the gutter. It's honestly infuriating how ego-driven some people can be. Out of respect to my previous team members, I won't share any details, but if any of them reads this (and that's unlikely since they were mostly lefties) then I got a message for you: cool heads should have preserved, and you should have been a bigger man.

What's the deal with Kaisserreich? I have installed it once, but it felt so much as blatant germanoid power fantasy- half of europe is in some mittelpact- 1/4 of Europe is straight vassal states- the rest is communistWhat draws people to this?
Why are mods so obsessed with "plausible" alt history now, it seems like more time is devoted to cutting content than adding it now
>>1270343>germanoid power fantasylmao, if Germany won WW1 that's how Europe would look like, in fact countries like Romania slip out of the German sphere of influence way too easily.What the fuck do you think would have happened if Germany won WW1, France fell to a communist revolution, Germany then intervened and made the White Russian side win and then the British empire collapsed?
>>1270336TNO's canon timeline was basically soviets (WRRF) restoring russia and invading germany soon after. Germany gets btfo so much the US have to save her via intervention.Lame and boring commiewank that got scrapped once panzer got removed.
>>1270377Soviets? Past the Urals?
>>1270349Actually, I have the impression that all these alt-history mods that start in 1936 are a dying breed. A lot of the newer big mods are finally moving away from the WW2 aspect of the base game. So I imagine that the reason existing alt-history mods are moving towards "plausible" scenarios is to try an rebrand themselves, breathe some new life into their dying genre of mods.
>>1269505Paradox doesn't allow those kinds of mods for HoI4 and Steam is primary platform for HoI4 mods, so...
>>1269505It's my understanding that Paradox does not explicitly ban things like talking about genocide, but a mod that actively allows/encourages genocide is haram.
>>1260925>Josef Maria Klumbbasedhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gLqkdr-ICqU
>>1270353That sounds exactly like "german power fantasy".I guess there isn't a deficit of the GroBer Germanium lovers around
>>1270486>power fantasy>Austria is not in the German sphere because they bickered about pointless shit>Ottomans are also a bit pissed at the Germans and Germany can't directly intervene in the Middle Eastern conflicts>most of the countries under the German sphere can rebel, flip to the other sides or simply be a nuisance to Germany>massive meme-level economic crisis affects Germany and its sphere of influence>most people in China hate Germany so much they would rather be conquered by Japan while trying to shake off German influence.Nice power fantasy.
>>1270489>>most people in China hate Germany so much they would rather be conquered by Japan while trying to shake off German influence.Is that really so far fetchedI didnt play the mod but at least the japanese are not completely alien in culture to them
>>1270498Cope>>1270503It kinda is, there are no paths that try to stay friendly to Germany but push back on some of the concession.It's either "we are corrupt, harmful to the people and simp to Germans" or "we are democratic/nationalist/socialist and anti-German"
>>1270349This is always the biggest problem. Inevitably the devs of a mod start pursuing realism over fun and it just goes downhill. Kaiserredux is an alternative, but the devs there need to do some streamlining and lower the loading times.Honestly this is why I only play Equestria at War, since it literally cannot be realistic.
>>1270534Realism is not the problem, the issue is when the devs have a narrow definition of realism or are clearly not putting in paths that they deem bad when they would be nice variety.
>>1270503>the japanese are not completely alien in culture to themDo you know how much Japan and China hate each other?
i need help in vanilla with japan
>>1270503Germany actually had positive relations with the Chinese IRL that only ended because of the necessities of allying with Japan. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sino-German_cooperation_(1926%E2%80%931941)>but at least the japanese are not completely alien in culture to themMay as well say the French or Polish shouldn't be opposed to German occupation for the same reasons.

>>1270626TNO's compatibility patch added more content than RF's
>>1270534>>1270349This is why the chads are awaiting Extremis Ultimishttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UxPA7b2uu5Uhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qch09PFPQ3U
>>1270634How embarrasingAnd unsurprising
>>1270635>muh ultraedgy characters>muh 10 gorillion warlordsNot that I mind those too much, but it really seems like TNO and RF and the like swung the pendulum too hard in one direction
>>1270637small devs team pls understando~~~
>>1270635>https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qch09PFPQ3U>plaudite amici comedia finita est>augustus caesarthis is wrong, those were Beethoven's last words, not Augustus'.Octavian's last words were "Acta est fabula, plaudite"Small nitpick but it shows bthe devs didn't bother to do the minimum research
>>1270635>>1270670What is the music playing for Cambion?Also the RNA video was based. I was just watching the British superevents teaser video and laughing my arse off. I already love this mod. The way this nation is collapsing at such a rapid rate, we'll be seeing it for real soon enough.>>1270634TNO hasn't had any real content since November 2020 and they've removed more content than added. TT took a ridiculous amount of time for little benefit and it seems the content teams only recently(as in June 2022) all agreed to remove Atlantropa and continue development on their countries with recent discord posts suggesting this to be the case "With Penelopes Web now resuming development..." as an example.No, "skeleton content" is not actual content and the recent news about patches being seperated into sub patches with the first to come now Guangdong then either Canada/Mexico followed by Manchukuo or alternatively Manchukuo followed by Canada-Mexico to be known collectively as Shifting Tides. It suggests problems in development.
>>1270460kinois this a song about the heer
>>1270297you can do 10 width with shovel line holders if you want, forget about ratios just have like 2-3 on each tile if you can. use the good divisions for attacking.motorized divisions are good to attach to tank groups since they're so speedy.make whatever tanks you want, but maybe use close support guns and medium cannons since you're going to fight lots of infantry.
>>1270690>remove Atlantropawait why
>>1270724The Italy and French guys just didn't want it anymore, they said it made making their content too difficult on a narrative standpoint. Rather than continue to update and keep their submod to remove it so two separate versions existed in parallel, they got rid of it citing primarily the aforementioned narrative issues. So atlantropa is no more, the chuds that screamed for its removal won.
>>1270635which chinese warlord is the most based?going by flag and name alone I would assume People's Redemption Army is the correct answer
>>1270635Who are Polaris, Atilla and the other people with weird names supposed to be? Really obscure political microcelebrities that have an audience on /pol/ or Twitter?
>>1270349>>1270385For example the Cold War mod is removing all the alt fascist/communist trees in Western Europe because "muh realism". So now you just get to stare at focus trees as a liberal conservatives or a social democrat.
>>1270762why do modders hate fun
>>1270762>For example the Cold War mod is removing all the alt fascist/communist trees in Western Europe because "muh realism".without these Fascist wildcard, cold war mod are fucking boring.
>>1270762Why do they do this? nobody wants to sit around playing fucking democratic Italy for 30+ years doing nothing but reading text.
>>1257164why is tommykay so annoying bros
>>1257164Probably Isorrow but I admire his honesty in refusing to play VIC3 and calling it shit compared to all of the other paradrone youtubers
>>1270762Are they really? That defeats the point of cold war then, the USSR subverting NATO nations and trying to make revolutions should be ingame and counter revolutionary actions should take place to stop them. Really stupid to remove itAlso 0.3 when? It's an enormous fucking update and I'm looking forward to it.>>1270851Exactly. We literally have TNO for that.
>>1257164I liked him when he was smalltime. He was very different and his personality was closer to old school East German. Now he's your average streamer with woke mindset. I lost interest in his preaching about environmentalism, multicult and the like. I hear he's the same with the Russo-Ukro war and believes everything western media and agencies say about it and bans anyone that says otherwise.For me that I hate the most, its that annoying British guy, can't think of his name, he does an effeminate exaggeration of every word as if he wants to die inside.The one I like most is Bokoen and his friends. I only wish they'd stop playing OT vanilla and slightly modded ones and do MP's of EaW,OWB and Kaiserreich instead. Its the same countries and same world every damn time.
>>1254615Is there a Russian victory image that has been teased?
>>1270933Oh that sucks.Sounds like its to lessen workload more than anything.
>>1270933>they doesn't know about the wolfgang remnant fascist in germany>not even underground fascist interconnection between various group from europe to americac'mon man
>>1270933Seriously I thought the point of HOI4 was for wacky alt history focuses? What's the point if you can only play as a democracy? What can you do?
>>1270939>What can you do?Spam the decisions that increase your parliament meter so that you can start a 70 day focus that gives you a book page-long event that gives base stability +5%
Anyone know what’s up with Cestino? Last time I saw one of his toozer mods it was that “What if Africa colonized Europe” mod that died. What else has crashed and burned since then?
>>1270939>What can you do?They could make opposing decolonization interesting but that would require skill which they don't possess.
I love plausibility! I love having political paths that amount to "conservative party" or "socialist party" in every country but Spain and Portugal!Said nobody ever.
Democracy can be fun if you make the candidates and the parties feel distinct from each other, write good narrative arcs for them and code engaging mechanicsBut that is too much work for them I guess
So it's a cold war mod where countries can't switch to becoming communist or capitalist? What kind of shitty mechanic is that?
>>1271091>if you make the candidates and the parties feel distinct from each otherThat's the thing, that didn't even happen IRL with a few exceptions.
>>1271091>But that is too much work for them I guessBut they had time make retarded economics that nobody cares about.
>>1271091>democracy>funBoring ingame and utterly useless in real life.
>>1271091That raises the question why you'd do it in a barebones wargame like HoI4 though.
>>1271114because TNO made it popular, unironicallyi wish it'd stayed as a vicky mod
>>1271137>muh realism is an argument against wacky paths>meanwhile irl world war 2 was started by a country that had an economy on par with zimbabwe before a failed, homeless art student took control of the country
Actual CWIC dev here we aren't removing things because muh realism its mostly because we don't have enough devs to work on that much content with the standard quality we set ourself to and since the mod is actually decades long adding 1 more path would mean adding at least 3 more path a decade later and we just don't have enough time and people to do that
>>1271214You should probably stop lying to the public, then
>>1270343>What's the deal with Kaisserreich? I have installed it once, but it felt so much as blatant germanoid power fantasyIt's actually the opposite. The mod started out akin to what you describe, but now it's more akin to an anarcho-syndicalist power fantasy. Despite a victory in the 'Weltkrieg' Germany barely has any ability to project its power overseas at all, which doesn't make any sense given the crushing blows dealt to nearly all world rivals. The original versions of the mod had German colonies all over the world but now aside from a handful of colonies in Africa and Asia (most of which are just temporarily occupied) it's like Germany didn't win the war at all. Somehow utterly impoverished, war ravaged and unstable countries like post-revolutionary France and Britain become superpowers in their own right, despite having zero resources or strategic bases overseas. The idea of them even surviving until 1936 without being brought to their knees economically is absurd. The 'power fantasy' you talk about were the stated German plans for a WW1 victory (i.e. the Septemberprogramm) and even then the mod massively scales them back. e.g. in reality the Germans also planned to seize a coastal strip in France all the way to Dunkirk (plus nearly all of its iron mines), annex Antwerp from Belgium and seize a massive border strip from Poland.
>>1271225Correct me if I'm wrong, but earlier versions of KR had the Germans in direct control of the Suez Canal didn't they?
>>1271232>earlier versions of KR had the Germans in direct control of the Suez Canal didn't they?Yes, and Nanzig, northern and western Polad, Yemen, Crete, Morocco, Malta, Somaliland, what later became German East Asia, indirectly the AOG (later League of Eight Provinces) and a bunch of other places.
>>1271243God the old map had soul
>>1271243Removing nanzig was so unbelievably petty.
EAW dev diary just dropped https://www.reddit.com/r/equestriaatwar/comments/z3p18z/equestria_at_war_dev_diary_xvi_kiria/?utm_source=share&utm_medium=web2x&context=3
>>1271214Thanks for the explanation
>>1257578>>1261056Apparently installing a Habsburg King in Poland will be possible after the Austria rework
>>1271232>>1271243>>1271275Wait, what does the new map look like? Pretty sure KX mostly still looks like that.
>>1270635so wait where’s Xi in this mod?
>>1271225>Germany doesn't holds territories they would have no realistic chance to ever reach>it's like Germany didn't win the war at allRetard
>>1271416Big doubt, even if it will be it will be too rare.Austrial should NEVER support the secular republicans.
>>1271275It seems like even French Flanders would stay under the commies in the future reworks and there would be no "Flanders-Wallonia" but just a normal Belgium(maybe STILL dominated by Francophones, lol)The timeline is becoming less "Germany wins WW1" and more like "Germany essentially stalemates in the West, trades occupied land for many French colonies while France is collapsing anyway and then just proceeds to luck out with the Brits falling to a revolution">>1271507Pic related
>>1271536>Germany couldn't hold Dunkirk and Northern Francelol
>>1271243>>1271646>finland -> republic of finland>don kuban is gone>that spot between albania and serbia in older version is gone>greece gain some land from bulgaria>romania lose some land to bulgaria>italy rework into 5 italy>lithunia lose some land to white russiaanything else?
>>1271660Finland starts as a Kingdom>that spot between albania and serbia in older version is goneSpot? Montenegro? Kosov?>lithunia lose some land to white russiaLithuania gained land from both Poland and Belarus.>anything else?No more German Malta, German Morocco, Austrian Crete, Illyrian/Croatian Montenegro.Poland also owns Chelm(god knows why, it was given to Ukraine OTL and in this timeline as well, I guess Germs changed idea, lol)The border between Belgium and Germany is changed(not more on the Meusse)Finland doesn't own Petsamo.Armenia is gone.
>>1271666>>that spot between albania and serbia in older version is gone>Spot? Montenegro? Kosov?yeah I guess that>>Lithuania gained land from both Poland and Belarus.well half right but that upper border between Lithunia, Belarus and Russia had change and it look like lithunia lose a little bit of land on the north
>>1270343It starts as a german powerfantasy but it ends up being a german nightmare as every non-germanic country piles up on them and tears them to shreds
>>1271214working on 3 different starting dates simultaneously was a huge mistake
>>1271828I have put it down stricly because of they did with Poland, is there a realistic way for me to play Poland and fuck over Germany or at least defend myself and recover polish lands?Honest question.
>>1271857On vanilla KR I think there's a way but I'm not sure, with Kaiserredux you can shit on Germany with most focuses and there's even an option to make Poland overpowered
>>1270343>everything i don't like is a german power fantasy or something
>>1271857With the rework you can at least remove German economic dominance and go either far-right or far-left and fight them, but you rely a lot on Russian or French help.
>>1271647>DunkirkUnder german flanders at game start>Northern FranceHow the fuck would have germany been able to occupy northern france in 1919, during a civil war? Nor they had the reason to.
>>1272322Germany was literally occupying northern France for 5 years during the war.In Kaiserreich they immediately retreat when the war ends, not even occupying it like the French did in the Rhineland
>>1272337Lore reasons>France however refused to sign the peace treaties first presented by Germany, deciding the conditions were too harsh to be agreed to. The ultimatum ticked down. Outraged at the unwillingness of the government to make peace, the French socialists started agitating for peace, including in the northern occupied regions, where the rebels were wholeheartedly supported by Germany.I agree that not letting germany take nancy is awkward
>>1272350I feel like Germany would occupy the region north of the Somme at least for a while.France in our timeline did so despite the US and UK being against harsh terms.
I really want to make a Starship Troopers mod. I have the know-how, experience and so on, I just can't figure out one thing, the map. Not as in I don't know how to make it, but that I haven't been able to find a good map of the Starship Troopers galaxy. I'm not sure one even exists. Any ideas?
>>1270932There are toozers for the Soviet and Medvedev victory.
>>1271020Cestino has gone full retard, he completly left the community for a while and pretended that he killed himself only for him to appear again, post some announcement on his youtube and leave again. Funny thing is that his last straw was some iraqi baathist guy telling him that a youtuber who posts folk music sucks.
>>1254615>>1272559I don't like that some countries being called simply "<name>" while others are called "republic of <name>", it seems very inconsistent
>>1272574The devs said that they are naming countries according to their official names.
>>1272577That makes sense and I'm glad that's the case and not just lazyness
>>1270534>>Honestly this is why I only play Equestria at War, since it literally cannot be realistic.t. ranny
>>1272438>tfw want to make my own HoI mod>Battletech>Invasion era>map is TukayyidWhy the fuck must I be such a talenless, hopeless faggot with no skills to make my dreams reality?
>>1272744You don't have to have a talent to make a hoi4 mod. 99% hoi4 modders lack any skills and are doing just fine. Just watch tutorials in youtube
>>1272760I have crippling dyslexia.
>>1272717Cope TNOfag, he's right
>tranny begins to project and fling feces
>>1272763So? You must be clinically retarded to not be able to mod hoi4
>>1272772Well, have I got a twist for you Anon..
>>1272744>>1272763>>1272773I'm a retard gorilla nigger when it comes to computers but even I managed to make a basic HoI4 mod.
>>1272775NTA but I'm bored of OWB, got a link?
>>1272777Nah, that was back when the game first came out, before the first DLCs.
>>1272777>>1272788Holy based digits
Realism good because it lets me learn and have fun at the same time
>>1272904This is why I love 8YWR
>>1272559>all these modern-day-collapse mods have cool satanic cannibal schizo death cultist warlords in USA while Russia is always stuck with the likes of Rogozin and other "normal" boring irl politiciansI'm already fed up with them in real life, why can't we get schizopaths like everyone else, rusbros...
>>1274198don't worry we still have fascist Dugin eurasia though if that count.
>>1274198go join the LaHL team.
>>1274199Dugin isn't fascist, irl at least. He isn't even racist. Just a poor man's intellectually dishonest Evola larper afraid to take outright non-pc stances.
>>1274198Russia will have a LDPR path and Dugin.
