HIP: The Modular Mod for CKII

Historical Immersion Project (HIP) is a collection of mods for Crusader Kings II which are designed to be able to work together in any combination. As the name suggests, all of its modules share a common focus upon historical immersion. It has a single, automatic installer and consists of:

+ EMF: Extended Mechanics & Flavor - Core overhaul
+ SWMH: SomeWhat More Historic - Map and history overhaul
---> SED: English Localisation for SWMH
---> MiniSWMH: High-performance SWMH
+ ARKOpack Armoiries: CoA overhaul
+ ARKOpack Interface: GUI overhaul
+ CPRplus - Extensive portraits overhaul
+ LTM - Graphics overhaul (textures, terrain, 3D shaders, etc.)
+ Shortcuts - Combination of Arumba's Keyboard Shortcuts and Internal Tab Shortcuts for quickly navigating the interface

Use this group to keep track of your HIP friends and new HIP releases.

Hit up our official sub-forum on ParadoxPlaza to get more information, download, and discuss:

We also have a burgeoning presence on the CKII Wiki, which should help explain HIP to new and old users alike. Wikis are always a work-in-progress, but this one's under rapid construction, so do also check back later for more in-depth and detailed information:

EMF keeps a comprehensive changelog archive all the way back to its first version, which is really handy since mechanics documentation otherwise isn't exactly widespread: (released versions) (current open beta)

Finally, HIP has a small but growing standalone web presence:

Hey I've been trying to install the mod but everytime I run the exe I get this error "OOPS: The HIP installer could NOT successfully determine your active CKII
game folder! Thus, it cannot auto-detect whether you meet all the portrait DLC
prerequisites for CPRplus. But all other HIP modules CAN still be installed!" it's driving me nuts because I have all of the aesthetic DLCs (I didn't buy the pagan fury music). Any help fixing this would be really appreciated.

Fixed the manpower problem by splitting of special event spawned troops, hope this helps anyone else having problems with manpower as nomad.

I pillage now, but i seem to have very low manpower growth as a nomad.
Is this a known bug?
It did help a bit by building manpower growth buildings, but it is still very low like 2 soldiers a month to my manpower.

This was not a problem before i started building stuff in my capital.
