Yeah I know that this is probably the fifth Heart of Cancer 4 thread but someone atleast gotta made a thread about it. Anyway what's mod are you playing?
The best HoI4 mod there isEquestria at War
>>766421tf is thisand is there another fantasy setting mod?
Finally Afghanistan is getting some content
>>766351Black iceIt is always black ice
>>767614what mod's that?
>>766421This. It's unironically an S tier mod.Fully recommend it.
>>767616Total War mod does Black Ice better than Black Ice for the purposes of HOI4
>>767614WOW MODIFIERS!? focus trees were a fucking mistake.
>>766421i hate bronies but unironically this. I spited them before and believed that their mod isn't going anywhere, and here we fucking now. Even their mod team is much more competent and cohesive than the clusterfuck that is TNO and regularly delivers new content often compared to other leading HoI4 mods out there
>>767960Total war is too simple and easy.
>>767614>outdated tribal military>actually makes your army betterheh nothing personnel modernists
>>766351I played some tno the other day
>>769357Can you argue with those results, though?
>>766421>>768972redpill me on this mod
>>769901>ponyfuckers use autism to make a baffling great mod set in the MLP universe but with lots of fanon
>>766421>>768972I think what serves it the the best is that it's tethered to pretty much nothing, allowing the writers and designers to do whatever the fuck they want. Necromancers vs Knights vs Commies vs Fascists vs Monarchs vs Pseudo Yugoslavia? Yeah sure, why the fuck not
>>771473>>771779So what's a good country for someone new to the mod?
>>767635Is KX better than KR
>>774354Depends, if you are searching for a KR with quite a lot more content sure. If you really really care about KR official lore and don't want any "unrealistic" stuff happening then stick with KR.
>>774240Griffonian Empire Griffonian RepublicRiver Republic Changeling LandsCounty of LongswordYale RectorateCrystal EmpireNew Mareland
>>766421based and redpilled
Is CBTS going anywhere?
>>774240Equestria, honestly. Tons of content and replay value. Where my Lunar Empire Chads @?
>>778398Lunar Empire is what Equestria should be. I can't wait for Equestria to get the rework it deserves, but apparently that's coming after Zebrica.
>>766421the custom audio for the units could be betterall the ponis have guns anyway so the generic gun clacking would have been fine...
>>778598>How do we hold a gun with hooves?No sir, that's pure kino.
>>778598PONIES AT THE READY
>>766351Finally got my own schizo mod startedshould I add Turconia?
any coom mods yet
>>779662why would you want to fap to a fucking ms paint game?
this thread is dedicated to the brave susjahideen of Luxembourg
>>779566>ZentralamerikaGermany wins WW1 and invades USA?
>>779566>not calling it Nuevo Mexico, or for that matter, Greater Texas
>>782006It’s all officially a part of Mexico, but I thought it would be more interesting to organize it as a puppet insteadWould the Mexicans call it Greater Texas? It doesn’t really correspond to a single former Mexican province. I like Nuevo Mexico, though>>780445more or less
>>766351Bros im having an issue where no mater what mods I load the game will not start.It will only load vanilla but even with a simple mod like player led the game with crash on start upblz helb
>>782006>>782032maybe try "Aztlan" like it's called in the vanilla focus
how do I stop these autistic romaboo retards? Hoover dam and Mojave outpost is a stalemate but these fucks went in and exterminated NCR and are now pushing in with endless hordes on my western border I don't have enough robuttts to deal with this. New Vegas seems gimped as fuck in tech otherwise.
>>782229nevermind, all the splinter legions just declared war on each other. time to start building Vegas Prime and stomp the remnants
>>782236OH NO NO NO NOLOOK AT THE SIZE OF THEIR ARMY
>>778390I believe they're releasing a major update after No Step Back comes out.
>>767992EAW mogging TNO yet again
what the fuck am i doing wrong? these fucking savages are beating me down and i cant make a dent... is it because they have more power in their units? i made mine combat width 20 for infantry and yet they fail
>>783959Looks like you don't have any divisions with decent breakthrough? Try adding explosives battalions/support and making enforcers/power armor (later on you can also use APCs and tanks with motorized). Also, don't forget to train your troops (most of them should be up to regular for that +25% combat bonus).
>>766421Came here to say this
Bumping this thread for eventual future self promotion
>>779566weakmake one where plagues didn't decimate indios and so they less or more resisted colonization(situation look more more like in Asia or Africa)
>>786333That might be true for Mesoamerica and modern day Peru, what about North America and Brazil/the Southern Cone where there really weren't that many natives anyway
>>786340>what about North America and Brazil/the Southern Cone where there really weren't that many natives anywaythey werethey just died off the screen because Anglos and Frogs were to late on colonization train also they were constantly dying in their territoriesmake it better mod - make better black plague ravage Europe and Asiaor make so NA are colonized by Irish and Vikings and their colonies survive(from one side) and Nips and Chinks from second you have and SA have Moors presence
>>786333>>786384Sounds like a neat timeline, but I’m lazy as hell and don’t want the POD to be so far backSpeaking of natives though, I’m going to make Canada ruled by a “First Nations” tag
>>766421are all the units cavalry?
>>786384>make better black plague ravage Europe and AsiaSounds like the Years of Rice and Salt, aka of COURSE there's Chinese not-California by the modern day
>>774920>TNOtranny coping this hard
Unrelated question but how the fuck do I win 2ACW as CAR?
is the avatar mod good?
>>790206Still in a rudimentary stage, but I have seen that they are trying to reform everything, so it has potentialWhat do you lads think of that new mod in the workshop, Age of imperialism?
Red Flood is the best.
>>789146>hold off as best as you can early on, especially since you're gonna be the syndies main target>don't piss of the nigsThat's about it, rest is just gitting gud
>>791398>Age of imperialismFeels very railroady so far and everything progresses super fast for some reason, both focusses and research. Playing as Germany, your economy crashes shortly after the game starts because of course it does but then you recover even faster than you do in Kaiserreich
>>791398>What do you lads think of that new mod in the workshop, Age of imperialism?I'm enjoying it so far, playing as imperial France. It definitely lacks the flavor of something like Kaiserreich, and most of the news events are boring bullshit like a typhoon or earthquake somewhere.
>>794092Red Flood would be the best if it wasn't written by ESLs
OH NO NO NO
>>794881WILLY CUT HIS WILLY
>>794881All the Russias guy is now indirectly responsible for BTFOing some schizo's dick
Is the Gundam mod any good at this point?It's the only thing that would bring me back to HOI4, really.
>>794881Sad many such cases https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hA_MbgGDIWY
Thoughts on this? Installed it yesterday. Having fun with it so farAdds stuff without going full autism like Black Ice
What are the most difficult countries to play in Kaiserreich? Just finished a game for Bulgaria and it was really fun to defend against the Belgrade pact and Turkey, but not really difficult
>>766421Bronnies may be bad, but alt-history autismos are worse.
I am macking a Megaman X themed modpack, won't be too out there, I just wanted to do it. Maverick, Maverick hunters, Red Alert, Repliforce, all that neat stuff. Maybe will make the Caribbean full of references to legends or something.
>>795295how the bloody hell will you make that? would play it though
>>795208national populist ottoman empire, its railroaded into collapsing but maybe you get lucky and the revolts make retarded decisions>>795149some youtuber made a series about it but made the videos private, can be very fun
>>795149I tried this out and seems like a lot of fun but someone needs to explain division training to me like I'm 5. Why is there a superhard limit of like 10 you can train at a time? It didn't look to me like AI players had that limitation?
>>795340Well it won't be chronologically accurate (it goes as far as having the ZX solution of fusing reploid and humans forcefully as an option in the main focus tree), the world starts fully neutral and starts to get taken over by mavericks. Ideology would basically be status quo, anti human, reploid separatist and radical humanist.I also tested out a system of buffs to mimic the game, where beating a fire or cutter themed maverick gives your troops a jungle combat buff to go attack Yammark in the Amazon.It is actually really simple since there are so few nations and no way in hell am I tackling map changes to add space combat, my main worries have been related to the tech tree and if I want to tweak that.
>>795420Didn't play much of it but if it's like BIce and Total War mods, I think you get tons of divisions from events/decisionsAnd HoI4 caps the amount of divisions you can train at time according to the number of already fielded ones or something.You can cheese that by designing a divisions with a single infantry, spam the shit out of it and when they're out you just select all and swap to your desired template Bear in mind this will drain your manpower and production supplies very fast depending how bonkers you go
>>771779>Pseudo YugoslaviaI find it more of a pseudo European Union. It all starts with a common economic zone and a defense pact, then come the price regulations from the (((River City))) Experts, then comes investing in impoverished neighbors, then the Euro and in the end you're either ruled by either a (((Harmony))) Bureaucrat from either the Lake or River City or, in my case whenever I play without historic AI, fucking Deponya.
>>794881God damn faggots.

What would you put in a kaiserreich submod to make it interesting and worth playing?Asking for a friend.
>>794095alright thanks so that I mean I should focus on holding off instead of rushing to kill syndies first and hold kingfish.
>>796086I wanna see funny timeline merge between 2021 and 1936 where trumps and other our current retard politician get into kaiserreich timeline.
>>797363Wasn't there a US mod about that called Time Machine or something?
>>766351i like TNO but as some people say it's very scriptedno matter how good you're at fixing the economy and dismantling the slave corps as Albert Speer, the slave revolt will always happen
>>797684>it's very scriptedit`s narrative driven for reason
>>794881is this photoshoped?
>>766421Basado. Brodfeld schizopath and going down the Machiavelli path with Flowena was fun as hell. Sad that the only fun I had with hoi4 was in a brony mod.
>>797686>it`s narrative driven for reasonYeah, an awful reason. It's so bad at being a deradicalisation tool that it actually loops back around to being a radicalisation tool. It's the Starship Troopers of modding.
>>797960yep, Albert Speer's run convinced me that fascism could work if it ditched the isolationist elements and relied on international organizations to enforce its agendakill them with kindness sort of thing
>>796060Ideologies:1) Revolutionary socialism2) Market socialism3) Maximalism4) Communism5) National syndicalism6) Social democracy7) Liberal socialism8) Moderate populism9) Market liberalism10) Conservatism11) Authoritarianism12) Monarchism13) Paternalism14) Populism15) Fascism
>>794881I hate tranniesThey must all die
Everyone's waiting for the next DLC to drop, which seems to be a mixed bag and maybe showing signs that paracucks are slowly getting their shit together.Railways finally becoming a thing, for instance. But the memetrees are being expanded again and its starting to resemble a map of metro.
>>798629i fucking HATE when the focus tree starts with only 1 available choice. its just bad design... and then they have it branch 3 kilometers wide looking exactly like a metro
>>767614THE YOUNG AFGHANS
what the hell is this bullshit? is this a bug? why are they the only ones in combat? my soldiers are 10 width and my paladins are the same.while on this topic, advice on playing the mojave chapter?
>>798113On a less ideologically-sound note, these people are so insufferable that it makes characters like Himmler, Taboritsky, and Rodzaevsky fan favorites just to spite them. In a game full of incessant nagging and patronizing rants that treat you like a child, it makes you want to go the complete other way and just kill everybody.
>>795149It's the best hoi4 mod, but it has major flaws>the ai has massive buffs and ignores lots of mechanics. This means that to win, you have to abuse the AI's stupididy>there is massive railroading. I.e. Japan has no chance of taking China but the Allies have no chance of holding SE Asia>Air is even more important than vanilla and without it you will be crushed.But it's still the best hoi4 mod.
>>790206no way I'm playing that barebones crap. love the concept tho>>794092its good. it lacks proper localization and has tons of broken focuses in it
>>801704Why is it the best hoi4 mod again?
>>803036I'm glad you asked>breaks the 40 width meta>makes support companies useful but not be always necessary>makes doctrines not completely linear and require some thought>unique equipment for majors>provides an actual challenge against the AI>as much of an economy system you want in a war game>fun in multiplayer, unlike BICE which is unplayable because of the micro>improves the navy so subs and DDs aren't kings>not story focused>adds reasonable alt-his, like Germany invading Sweden>adds missing historical events and focuses>feels complete, unlike a lot of mods that are just buggy or WIPIt's what vanilla hoi4 should be. Most of it's issues are the fault of paradox and the shitty AI.
>>801704How does it compare with eaw?
>>803049It's apples to oranges. I've not played Eaw much, but it's not trying for realism or to be a WW2 game. I'd happily replay WA as every nation but I wouldn't play Eaw over and over. If you want a fantasy hoi4 mod, I prefer Owb but that's probably because I prefer the setting.
>>803044>>not story focusedSo it's shit then
>>803060Why do you want a story in a war strategy game? There are much better mediums for storytelling.
this kills the kaiserfag
>>804129The age of Liechtenstein-Alaska and Goeringia is HERE
what are some good modding tools for hoi4?
>>803061>Why do you want a story in a war strategy game?Why would you play HoI4 as opposed to, say, Darkest Hour if you DON'T want story?
>>801097I'm guessing it's because the tile is both defending and attacking at the same time? Also, multiple combat penalty is a big deal, you should avoid it if at all possible.Also, you should be able to just roll over Mojave Territories if you focus on getting high preparation score.
hlo evryon1 im new here but im working on an EPIK HOI4 MOD!! its VERY ORIGINAL and KOOL! my mom said she liked it and gave me 20 good boy points.what do u think /vst/????
>>807585Because HoI4's combat is objectively superior, its the other things that DH does better. All other responses is boomer cope.
Hello, /vst/!I'm writing this post because I'm looking for active coders to help me and the team finish our mod. We're especially looking for modders with technology modding experience.The mod we're working on is called The Lost Isles. TLI is a total conversion mod set in the My Little Pony universe about 50 years before the show. We chose not to feature Equestria itself though, the mod takes place in an original part of the MLP world. TLI is set in the equivalent of 19th century, going from the Napoleonic Wars up to around 1880s. We chose to remake the tech tree from scratch to better suit the era and setting we're portraying, with a heavy focus smaller scale and faster paced combat. We will also feature unique technologies and units for each species.TLI is first and foremost a gameplay mod. We put an emphasis on player freedom and emergent scenarios over handcrafted stories.TLI is not affiliated with EaW in any way.The tech and mechanics are almost fully planned already. The map is halfway finished, and the tech is around 70% coded. We need help to finish up the tech for now.If you're an active coder, and would be interested in working on a mod like this, feel free to DM me on Discord: Sergeant Amol#0059Pic related, this is out map.
>>808991Our infantry tech.
>>808991This level of autism usually produces something inspired and surprisingly good like the original Equestria at War, this just looks like shit.
>>808993>900 years of techIts not even funny to post shit like this
>>804129too much clutter. you could've just triggered the ideological trees by event/replacing instead of displaying them all in one go.>But I want to see them all you so I can get a bigger picture of the gameplay, you fag.Go fuck yourself.
The best mod is RCP
>>766351Hello goy$ trannies and niggers. I comes to announce a mod that i have been working on for a some time already.Hearts of Iron 4: UnthinkableThis mod will show 70's in which USA stands at the top of the world - they defeated both Axis, and Soviet union during WW2 that lasted until 51. This bloodiest war in history ended with one world hegemon - USA. And in this position USA standed for 20 years. Modern world however with every passing day changes more and more. and USA domination soon will come to an end.In Western Europe Regional Powers - UK, France and Germany fight over scraps of power, with animosities that are continuing ever since Germany left war almost unpunished.In eastern Europe Czechoslovakia is at brink of collapse, with Poland, Ukraine, Hungary and Romania preparing for this spark that will surely restart conflict in the region. Little to the north Lithuania and Belarus are waiting for moment of Polish weakness to reclaim land they consider to be their birthright.Failed state of russia is not only still partially occupied by American forces, but also eaten from inside by corruption, struggling with heavy debt, and experiencing almost constant acts of terror.If Russia is sick man of Eurasia then failed experiment to the south of Russia - Mountain Republic is bedridden cripple. Created to protect Minorites from russia, and guarantee american oil monopoly in the area, its going all the way from Volga germany to the southern Azerbaijan. And its mere months from dying. Destruction of Mountain Republic will kickstart failure of American system, that will spread in every direction.In Balkans Yugoslavia and their sphere - Communist states of Greece, Bulgaria and Albania, are awaiting future events, ready to exploit any moment of weakness in europe.In Asia Nationalist china is slowly going back on right track, and unless some powerful nation stops them, soon they will become leading power on continent.(1/2)
>>812163African countries struggle with their newfound indpendence, and Arab Revolution rages in the North, lead by figgures like Ghaddafi, and Naser, while Dictators of Middle Africa - Idi Amin, Mobute Sese Seko and Bokassa I exploit their people.I don't care much about south america so don't expect much content there, but chile definietly will be exception to the rule, and maybe brazil too.Ok so why did i write this wall of text? Because release will be soon. Unlike mods like Kaiserreich i don't intend to personalize countries in first release - in the year from now demo will be released, and it will be free for all, with no direction other than wars, with no narration. This free-for-all demo will be there to prove that gameplay, the most important part of the game works, and that i can freely build up on it. Fell free to ask me about anything.
>>794881I thought this is another lame shitpost/bait like pic related. The fact that playing hoi4 converted someone to become a tranny tho still haunts me to this very day. Would HoI4 turn me into something weird like a lolicon or so? what are the ramifications this type of game has to one's identity?
>>797699its legitits on their Zuckbook page
>>808993What he said >>812093Unless you fucked with the time so that decades go by real quick, there is absolutely no one who will play that long. Keep it within a 20-30 year timespan.
>>812093>>812218The mod starts in 957 and ends in 971 there are 14 years of tech, these earlier techs are for primitive nations. There will be many nations without gunpowder at the start of the mod.
THIS is why I'm into hoi4 modding
>>812183Hoi4 unironically turned me into a fascist. It wasn’t because of some inherent design which promotes fascism/nationalism or because I like LARPing as Nazi Germany, it’s because it is a prime contender for the worst fucking fan base in the world (which just so happens to be filled with Reddit-tier communist/radical liberal trannies.) Captcha was VSTAT, KEK
>>795149It's a cool mod but it keeps fucking crashing once I reach January 1st, 1939.
>>812953Terrible quality of icons
>>812277Ah, then I gotta admit that's a lot of tech in between for infantry. How many research slots will the most nations have for your mod?
>>813604Primitive nations start with 1 or 2Most civilised nations will start with 3, some with 4.Most nations will be able to get up to 6 slots when they become industrial.We'll feature a mechanic of tech levels, sinmilar to OWB, but all nations will be able to advance to the final level eventually.
>>7951496.4 just dropped and it looks like it fixes some of the issues by making the AI smarter and have less cheats.
>>812129>more information is badkill yourself TNOtrannie
well looks like DH is going to be dead in the water soon
>>815225nevermind it's alive again and it's good news tooAlgerian General got bullied out of developing the mod because he was becoming incompetent at working on the mod and leading the team, and now the most competent members have the lead

>>782157try steam discussion I remember having the same problem before
>>812163>>812168Sounds like a really cool concept. Did the US nuke Russia in this timeline? Operation Unthinkable would realistically be a stretch to pull off without them.
>>807767Honestly I'm impressed you put the effort into the map
>>766351>Anyway what's mod are you playing?EQUISTERIA AT WARThis is undoubtedly the best mod. Nothing beats the the sheer challenge, the devious intrigue and the awesome brutality of this catastrophic conflict between powerful My Little Pony factions.I strongly recommend getting dressed up in your best pony suit for full immersion. Scatter some horse shit around your room for that authentic smell experience.
>>818763You're the same schizo who became obsessed with le beavers aren't youThis is a slow board and your posts are very recognizable :^)
>>818784Excuse me, they weren't just ordinary beavers. They were....HIGH BEAVERS !!!!OMG!HIGH BEAVERS !!!!JESUS FUCKING CHRIST!HIGH BEAVERS !!!!Now spot my posts on another thread.
Millennium Dusk had so much promise.
Those of you who've followed these thread before might remember the flooded world mod I've been working on. Well, I finally managed to crack the map code, and the game is now playable once again. With that, I've begun working on the mod itself, pic related is what I've done to the politics screen so far. While the leader and military staff are placeholders, you'll notice new laws, designers etc.But most importantly the new "National Character" section of the politics screen. These are practically national spirits, except they stick with you through out the entire game, with significant buffs that alter gameplay. The new system's working as intended, and the intention is to eventually give every nation their own set of National Characteristic.With this out of the way, I'll start moving on to creating a new tech tree, inspired by Endless Space 2's tech tree, so it's going to be a single tree with all the tech in it.
>>820282>it's going to be a single tree with all the tech in itthats pretty ambitious anon. but since endless space's tech tree divides into 4 parts: wouldnt it be easier to just divide it into 4 tabs?
>>820282This anon >>820657 has good idea divide it in 4 parts
>play the unifications wars "40"k mod.>mechanised guard with Chimeras mogg the fuck out of spehhsmehrens in all stats except supply use.>way cheaper production costs too>no way to mechanize or motorize the spehhsmehrens.What did they mean by this?
>>820888its unbalanced trash dont even bother unless you want a powertrip
I wonder how bad will No Step Back break TNO and other high intesity mods
>>820888it means guardchads win again
>>820657>>820660It's a good fallback option, but I'll test to see what it would look like with a single tree.
>>817925Actually, there is not nearly enough historical references to fit the right honorable Mr. Jacob Rees-Moog's parliamentary style. I'd expect at least two historical battle references and one quote from the bible.
What are some good OWB submods?
>>821097itll be a speedbump but overall modding will be a lot quicker and more convenient once they get over that hill, thanks to the people system they're introducing which i know the TNO devs would especially love
>>824164>speedbumpA whole supply system rework, railways and trains and a state rework is only a speedbump?
>>819489oh did it die?
>>824188for a visual novel? yes
You'd think that for how much wanking KR does over the 2nd American Civil War but it's not fun or engaging in the slightest. It really says something when it's considered fair and balanced that the whole thing is a time attack to strangle the CSA in the cradle before they pull enough divisions out their ass to stop your snake
>>790206ck2 mod is much better
Old World Blues is the best mod. Fuck I almost didn't play this game at all if it wasn't for OWB. Learnt a lot from the MOJAVE territories campaign. More simplified, no naval, limited air attacks etc. Plenty of time to figure it all out. Now can finally win as Germany.But if you haven't, old world Blues. Everything they done right Feels like an actual additional Fallot game with the original feel
>>824751My favourite part of OWB is how they use impassable terrain in a way that gives interesting battlefield shapes, and not just the vanilla "lmao attack across everything".
>>824854Tbh I never actually noticed vanilla hoi4 didn't have impassable terrain. Yeah it makes for interesting clusterfucks and chokepoints. It really is a great work of art. The sounds, music.and UI is brilliant. Just want quicker access to vertibirds.Also there's a submod to it, hellscape I think or hellfire. Don't want to spoil it but it's kino as fuck. There's an enclave reborn one I found but it needs to update to the latest owb version (if it hasn't already)
>>824188>>speedbump>A whole supply system rework, Checked. Probably a bit more intensive. >railways and trains Probably going to be half-assed, given the Russian and African anarchies make for low infra there. >and a state rework is only a speedbump?TNO already uses custom states. It was ported to HoI specifically to add Atlantropa.
>>824714>You'd think that for how much wanking KR does over the 2nd American Civil War but it's not fun or engaging in the slightest.KX has a vastly superior, and massively expanded, 2ACW.
So what do you lads think of Millenium Dawn and Novum Vexillum, it feels like Modern Day 4 triumphed over the former and just took it over
>>825417i dont think they mesh very well as by nature HOI4 is a war game and it sucks at even that, also i think they have a tendency of being ugly and uncomfyhaven't tried out modern day 4 though so i'll check it out
>>824854Probably because it completely breaks the frontline/battleplan system. Well, even more than it already was, at least.
>>825417sucks ass. too slow
What are your thoughts on symmetrical focus trees? Do you prefer them asymmetrical?
Im sure there are some polebros here. Whats your opinion on Pride and Fall?Will it be good?
More progress on the flooded earth mod; I've begun work on implementing victory points, as seen here. Additionally I cracked the tech tree code, and have laid the groundworks for a new tech tree. As I mentioned previously, all technology will be on a single tech tree, starting from a centerpoint, visible here with the icon that has the fist and waves.
>>828135And here's a world map I managed to put together. Couldn't be bothered to remove the misc tabs visible at the bottom. In case you're wondering, you can enter the Caspian with fleets via the Black Sea (Already made the canals work), still debating if the Aral should be connected to the Caspian though.
>>828138>the UK is fine>somehowaren't the british isles one of those places that'll get utterly fucked by rising sea levels
>>828140They've had their share of sunken land. This flooding is not based on any realistic projection, but the HoI4 heightmap. I simply raised the water level by (IIRC) 7 or so shades of gray.
>>828142Oh. It's a meme mod. I should've known when I saw NLF/FNL in South America.
>>828151If by meme you mean "doesn't take itself too seriously", then sure.
>>828066link to what? i didn't take it from discord
>>828138>those borders in europebut why? i guess its some kind of eu organization, so borders should stay same
>>828138i hope that nation in middle east is neo-akkadian empire, or something else connected to old mesopotamia and not more mudslimes
>>812163>UK, France and Germany fight over scraps of power, with animosities that are continuing ever since Germany left war almost unpunishedThis feels like a fun concept to play around with Germany basically being flipped by the US and rearmed to take on the USSR A lot of 'unfinished business' and conducive to an interesting game scenario
>>828187States are built based on natural formations like rivers and mountain, which is part of the reason some borders are funky. Additionally the world went through two decades of chaos following the flooding, which is my justification for most border changes.>>828189The big red blob is the Hashemite Suzerainty, so technically speaking they're Muslim, but not in practice.
>>818634Yes, but honestly i think that Operation Unthinkable was at best going to only stop the soviet advance, so i want to make it entiery transparent that i do not belive that this scenario is realistic, so while war is fundamental to all the things that happen after it, i won't give detailed timeline of allied advance into russia, atleast not in one place. Hovever after this unrealistic setup i want things to go belivable, especialy after game start.
>>812186that's obviously a joke nigga
>>828195>The big red blob is the Hashemite Suzerainty, so technically speaking they're Muslim, but not in practice.Too bad, i was expecting something more wild. I would like ask if you could give them ancient mespopotamian flavour to them when they get content. It would be more interesting than another muslim nation
>>828221Sounds fun, I was going for some sort of monarchist thing with them but I'm sure they can incorporate mesopotamian things at least aesthetically.
>>828227Based, finaly modfag that listens to what people want. Good luck on your work. As a sideonte i guess it would be too soon to ask for release date?
>>828254Technically speaking the mod is playable already. Practically it's still missing a world population, state buildings, flags, portraits and so on. I just need to start recruiting people at some point to speed up the grunt work. 1st quarter 2022 maybe?
>>794881Your child starts modding HoI4, feels a bit weird, BAM, trannyism! Many such cases...

>>812992I legit have no idea how the fuck leftists are so attracted to this game and am forced to assume it's some kind of weird normie reaction to Germany beating them.
>>818791High beavers are best beavers
>>830638No matter what they think about them, in their moment of need, the ELECTRIC BODYBUILDER FROM RUSSIA showed up
>>829566What fucking mod is this? I recignise some... things.
>>829566Based but I wish the Flash and Circle changed to the actual British Fascisti flag. As Orman hated Mosley and thought he was a commie
>>830773A Very British Civil War
>>825417>any of those liberals>communist
not gonna lie, Novum Vexillum is pretty kino at times
are you guys excited about all mods being broken by next week
>>832695The only thing that i can imagine will give modders problems will be the infrastructure changes, i dare not imagine how many variables related to that they will have to tweak.
>>832775Tanks are now designed, mtg was a pain because of thatAdvisors are also changing
>>830963Needs better localisation though, problem with a lot of mods anyway
How hard is it to make a new mod? Simple one, focus trees and events. Wish I had a mod tool to not play with ugly txts and csv, and to see real time changes ingame.
>>790206I played it once.It implemented the story of the fire nation genociding the nomads very well in my opinion.There economy tree was pretty interesting.I didn't like how OP the fire nation soldiers were. I think it was a boost of 100x of their stats or something during the comet. But its in line with the show.Overall, pretty bare bones as the other guy, has promise.
>>832852not too hard if you're only playing with events, national focus, and decisionsthe hard thing is to acquire the right images for them if you're bored with the vanilla ones
>>828138The map look interressing, can you talk about the superpower of each regions of the world, and what the world war would look like ?
I want to make a mod for the generic focus tree and make it more Spain like with trees for both promoting a civil war against the starting state government or continuing the same government peacefully. I hear a lot that the generic tree is powerful so what suggestions do people have for ensuring I have enough focus tree function for fun without eclipsing other nations trees?
>>829861Same reason that 14 year old Wehraboos play it; because they have to cope for being retarded. It's just that left wing ideologies don't encourage personal strength and improvement, so they don't grow out of it
>>834761>they have to cope for being retarded. It's just that left wing ideologies don't encourage personal strength and improvement, so they don't grow out of itI think I get it! They're retards who bought the game because they can't win a real game without using a console command to win.

this is my last warning to the marxist hypertrannycocksuckers
Hey, actual hoi dev here. Just wanted to say I hate all you modders and i went great lengths to make this patch a nightmare for you. I overhauled multiple major game systems, change balancebof many things, moved game files around etc etc. I even changed signature of some effects and triggers just to break modsYou are welcome
>>838256Thanks for giving small mods easy way to update and release stuff quickly
>>837948Same old tale>immature dev gets kicked off for being immature>proceeds to leak every plan in retaliation and attentionwhoring
why is it that every big mod I try to download ends up crashing in the loading screen?I want to have fun too
>>779566>No Trigonia, Pineland, and Atlantica>Instead 2ACW with CSA and Mexicans
>>838592Trigonia?Circle Trigonist time?
>>838635We AGGRESSOR now
>want to play Kaiserredux>know that the DLCs is coming out soon and will make the game mechanics much betterGoddamnit
Speaking of KX, have the New York teaser
>>839560KX is everything a HoI4 mod should be The game is largely shit but shines in letting people live out their delusional alt-history nationalist/ideological fantasies, thus KX maximizes the potential routes for that. When I want to play a WW2 grand strategy I boot up DH or HoI 3
>>766421I need more kino in my life. I also know absolutely nothing about MLP shit. Is this playable?
>>838635Circle trigonists is underrated alternate history.
>>840639Most of the stuff there isn't even related to the show, it's like whispers to the real world, you'll see multiple expies of the same nation in different points of time, sometimes even in the same one, and you're usually given a big amount of options of what to do with each, they tapped into the creative potential and made something interesting, ponyfags or not
>>842071So it's less pony lore and more insane autistic people photoshopping ponies into holocaust pictures? I can dig that.
>>842104There's like 3 different nazi germany analogs that I've found in there, one dirlewanger's brigade nation, one jewish resistance group, and fuck if we start talking about the German empire or the HRE. It has a lot of shit, it is worth looking into just for the amount of depth
>>842107I've already found the main WW2 Germany so I guess I'll start with them. It also loads 100x faster than KX so that's nice.
>>840639Most of the show's characters don't even take principal roles in the mod, especially if you don't play Equestria itself.
>>766351if I'm a retard and accidentally give away a core territory via diplomacy will it stay a core if I take it back?
How do you feel about this toozer /vst/?
>>842695wehraboo reddit trash
>>819489Millennium Dusk was unironically a demented trannymod. I usually don't say such things but everything polfags say about TNO was true about it. It'd suck and push you wholesome queer America in the face. Just hope for another out of the billion of modern day schizomods to release
any idea when MAA will be done?I want more of it...
>>843671Red Dawn is the worst I've seen, total political power fantasy without any real notion of realism or even gameplay consideration. Russia usually invades the US pre-unification so you can never unify, but more importantly the anti-Communist US can still be defeated by the Communist faction of the US even if it actually manages to conquer the Soviet Union.
dont like what HOI4 is becoming, when the game came out it was fairly bare bones and needed more stuff, and over the years paradox has improved it greatly, but now they are going too far in the opposite direction and adding layers upon layers of feature bloat that getting increasingly a pain in the ass to keep track off, lest you forget one tiny detail in all that shit and get curb stomped by AI because you forget to set Erwin Rommel's alarm clock to 5am and feed him toasty oats
I wish there was a mod that was just the normal WW2 timeline but with all the shit in TNO. The retarded ass alt-history is the only thing that turns me off from it.The actual second world war is interesting enough without all that shit.
>>844944I think the new railway system is actually a decent idea.Logistics were a huge factor in why Germany lost the war and having it better represented then just a simple button press is a welcome idea.The real issue is the AI in these games is very bad and does some really retarded shit and ontop of that sometimes don't know how to really use the systems to their full potential.
>>844944It feels like the navy and the airforce lack something, anyone else feeling it?
>>844959What is TNO is about? Its visual put me off
>>845013it lacks the micro management of land combat. which is a good thing
>>845013The navy lacks need, since the ships aren't balanced and the AI produces crap and deletes most of them before they're finished. It works better in multiplayer. But the biggest problem is that naval bombers are too powerful. The airforce is annoying, requires perfect micro, is centred entirely around fighters. Strat bombing is incredibly overpowered but not fun.They both have the same problems as the rest of hoi, poor balance and the ai can't use it well. Some mods address those problems.
>>845708The Axis win WW2 and it's the cold war now.
>>845708Historical determinism, and how "bad guy" ideologies always will fail in the end
>>847186hey, real communism hasn't been tried yet OK?
Imagine all the reworks required for next version
>>847208They've cut back on that since Panzer and Pacifica both stepped down from lead dev roles. They're trying to be more equal I believe.
>>766421Could be if it was actually about ponies and not anthro cat/birds furries
>>847244Didn't paz come back?
>>847299Strictly working on Komi, but not as a lead dev.
>>847300Do they even have a lead anymore?
>>847302They have like a team of leads now all working together. There was a specific directive though that they were going to be less "Far Left Lib is Utupian" though.
>>847303>libsoc mod team ends up having to make libsoc teamplan tooI wonder how this will work, "Russia does not answer to dual authorities", like they wrote
>>847303Unless they outright reject socialism, it won't make much of a difference.TNO's biggest problem is that there is no gameplay. Unless they add war (which doesn't work well in hoi4 for the time period) it will always be boring. It's a visual novel that has bad writing currently and lots of superfluous mechanics that don't impact the game.
>>847402I agree, I tried playing it again after TT dropped and I wasn't feeling it stillI was just saying the "message" of the mod had been dropped all together.
>>837866>Artaud Is this a Red Flood leak? Im impressed. I had doubts based on the announcement they made to make France more realistic but this just proved me wrongFrench civil war, Xcrise, Guenon, and I guess ITS is the anprim replacement based on the description.
>>766351Quick developmental question.It's true that a nation has no allies and only interests. But what's your opinions on tying the external diplomacy to the prescribed path? (Eg the Soviet Union will pretty much always invade Germany and vice versa but if your fascist you can be buddies) Or do you prefer the Kaiserrech method where the internal politics don't really decide much, and there's a separate tree for diplomacy?
Alright, OWB has updated so far, what mods are you waiting for /vst/?
>>848359Depends how important conflict is to that country. You see it in the base game somewhat. Hitler's got a hard on for invading so it's all in his main tree. The US is more isolationist so a lot of that shit is off to the side.>>848448EAW. I've been waiting to do the larger countries in that. The land masses are basically just large blobs and would lend themselves well to the new supply system. Plus knowing those degenerates they'd tweak it to make it work.
>tfw I've been procastinating my KR submod for months>I have to re-learn modding to understand what was changed with the latest patchpain
>>848359>>848510Agreed. Heavily depends on the views of certain people. When althist modding its always crucial to look at who would force conflict simply out of ideology and who would take a realpolitik stance on diplomatic issues.
>>825417Dogshit. Novum Vexillum less than MD because global conflict atleast adds something interesting
What's this dog symbol supposed to be in Kaiserreich? Am I missing some textures?
>>851237Apparently it's a problem with hoi4's last hotfix, others on the subreddit are experiencing this
So what sort of timescale are we looking at before larger mods like EAW and OWB actually support NSB (and by support I mean actually use the new systems, not "the game is playable even if you're on 1.11" which is where OWB is now, according to the patch notes)? A few weeks? A couple months? Longer?
How the fuck am I supposed to do anything as Russia in Keiserreich?
>>851335>How the fuck am I supposed to do anything as Russia in Keiserreich?Just solve your nation's issues. Within a few years you will be the most powerful nation on the globe even if you are retarded.
>>851248IT'S GONNA TAKE SOME TIME TO REALIGN
>>851335Fix your shit and watch as become so powerful you can solo Syndies and Germs & Japs simultaneously.
>>766421Like it or not, it is true.
>>842695yet another visual novel fanfic larp. try actually adding new mechanics or fixing parts of the game. remember that fun is rule 0.
>>851335...you're having trouble with the most powerful country in the mod?
Is this game worth getting just for OWB? Should I pirate it or buy it?
>>8525361: no. 2: pirate everything always. the gameplay is actually really bad, and it runs like shit. if you do pirate it be sure to mod it out for performance and get some friends to play multiplayer with.
>>766351>Work for random Lmao ass mod>Never played a paradox product in my life.Powerful.
Ok I got OWB running on a pirate copy by some miracle of trial and error because all the instructions I could find were wrong.Now I don’t know how to play. Impressed though I like the attention to detail.
step aside TNOcucks and visual novel trannies.
>>852551Not him but what can you recommend for performance mod-wise?
>>852860Bettermod somehow gave me less desyncs than vanillaWhoever mods that is some turbo autist or something
>>852860mods that chop down on division count, mods that remove most of the focus tree shit.basipally >>852867
>>852867>3. Optimizing the game by compiling the entire generic focus tree all into one instant focus. Yes you read that correctly, the generic focus tree is now just one massive focus
>>852803That's always been a problem with paradox games. Just watch a few HoI4 videos by Pravus or some other youtuber, that should give you the general idea (I recommend Pravus because I'm pretty sure he's the only one who is actually playing OWB and it's significantly different from vanilla).
>>852895I’ll check that out, thanks for the tip anon.
Russian colluders will rot six feet underground!
>>855408It will be a FALL ROT indeed
>>842695Fuck that I want my Violet Evergarden loreverse mod
>>852803what "launcher" are you using? Don't use the pdx v2 launcher - that's utter bullshit. Go with irony mod manager, it even allows you to have modsets and queueing functions when playing with mods.
>>855943and yes if you may ask - YOU CAN play the game perfectly and smoothly without their horrible shoddy piece of shit "launcher".
>>855943>>855946okay I'm retarded, anon actually got his game to work but yeah, my point still stands.
>>778596>Zebricaany ETA on that?
>>855949anon, fucking how? i tried installing owb on pirated hoi and i fuckup ever-time even if i fallow instructions
>>856622I've done it, let me helpexplain what you did, you replaced the paths, right?
>>856629basically put the folder in, do the "create a mod" bullshit using new launcher, afterwards putting mod files into that folder
>>856661like, i did same thing as most youtube tutorials would tell you to do
>>856661Let me tell you how I do it>download the mod from the workshop downloader io>make sure the hoi4 mod folder in documents exists>make a new folder and put the mod files all in there>the DESCRIPTOR has to be copied outside into the mod folder itself, so you have both the mod and the desc next to each other inside the hoi4 mod folder>open the desc with text and add a path>find the mod in the launcher by itself, and playhave you done the same?
>>856673right, i did not copy the descriptor into the mod folder, i just tried using either the original mod descriptor or pre-made (launcher) generated one.Will try that later
>>856681Here is an example, does it look like this?
Hey /vst/! Wanna watch some super events?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w1CCW9w-WiM
>he does it for freeAHAHA, imagine working for paradox FOR FREE
>>856692Do chinese people play gsg?
What the fuck am I doing with my time
>>856692Chinks in whatever this universe is have it terrible, jesus. any primers to what happens to mexico?
>>856685nope, i forgot to do the "id" thing, probably why game kept crashing when initializing
>>857209>We live in a period in which Mosley is very popular.Based Guangdong player.
>>766351Is there a HoI 4 mod that's fun and doesn't run like absolute garbage?
>>858587Unironically the pony mod. It may run better than vanilla actually. Hasn't updated though sadly.
>>858829Pretty sure they are literally working on a new continent.This is what happens when the team is 5 schizophrenic russians.
>>859391>RusskoidsHoly shit, what?I thought this shitty pony mod was made from a bunch of fat 20 year old amerimutt bronies with some onion leftist in the mix as well. I guess that would explain the high quality on most of the world building without some obvious self inserts.
>>859490Yea, it's a handful of Russians. Development even stopped for a while cause the lead dev was conscripted.Russians love ponies for some reason.
>>859391Yeah they are, might change how well it runs. Also supply update but that's hurt vanilla too. Still, unlike vanilla Africa and South America there's actually a point to it all. Chemical warfare in this case.>>859510From the culture that brought us the Gadget cult.
Is OWB the only overhaul mod so far that's compatible with NSB?
>>859510Russians just love weird shit, like japs, who have a subculture about absolutely fucking anything american, they even larp as cholos and shiet. Idk why it happens.
>>859490Western autists transition and dump all their time and energy in E-drama and making self-inserts.Russian autists dump all their time and energy into making something great. Yet of course, weird.
>>860019If you're not counting vanilla+ overhaul mods like Total War, that seems to be the case.I'm getting to the point where I may have to try OWB again, vanilla is so fucking bad. It just had so much different shit I couldn't be bothered. And I couldn't find a faction that grabbed me. The Luchas almost did but their tree wasn't autisticlly inside wrestling enough for me.>>860092Autism awareness was the worst thing that ever happened to us. It attracted ideologues looking for the easy to exploit.
>>860019Far as I'm aware it is. The new supply system is an absolute shitshow to get working on overhaul mods since Paradox in their infinite wisdow didn't provide any kind of documentation. Apparently that's coming in a week or two though.
>>856692Surprised they didn't use this for the third white lotus faction.
here's a questionwhich hoi4 mod has the most autistic player base?
>>861693Is that pic I see posted of the "nordic as fuck" kid getting married real or just a shitpost?
>>862774I belive its real cause everyone deserves to be happy except for /vst/ posters
