* WHAT IS THIS MOD ABOUT?

It's an attempt to make the name of every country, irrespective of ideology, be more... sensible. Just like in HOI3!

* WHAT DO YOU MEAN?

It means that countries won't have bizarre names ('Kiwi Empire' begone) or incredibly long names that no one can actually remember (try reading 'People's Republic of China' or 'Kingdom of Norway' in a quick glance). Countries will be called exactly what they were called by most of the world at the time (1930s-1940s) in a short, concise way.

* CAN YOU GIVE SOME EXAMPLES?

To give two examples, 'German Reich' will be called 'Germany' even when fascist, non-aligned, democratic or communist, while 'Russia' only changes its name when communist ('Soviet Union'). Fancy subject names (e.g. Lithuania under German control, the 'Reichskommissariat Litauen') are changed to more simple ones ('Lithuania'). Some historical names that were more widely used are applied as well.

* DID YOU CHANGE ANYTHING ELSE BESIDES COUNTRY NAMES?

The Fascist Autonomy system has been translated from German into English (so we have 'Comissariat' and 'Protectorate' instead of 'Reichskommissariat' and 'Reichsprotektorat'; Fascist Italy using German nomenclature no more!).

The Japanese Autonomy system now makes sense ('Imperial Subject' is now 'Imperial Partner').

Most factions got more elegant/translated names (Italy's 'Novus Imperium Romanum' is the 'Pact of Steel', the Polish 'Miedzymorze' becomes 'Intermarium', Japan's 'Greater East Asia Co-Prosperity Sphere' is known as 'Co-Prosperity Sphere', etc).

The mod also fixes dozens of vanilla errors and typos in localisation/text, and makes sure technology groups, decisions and focuses have sensible, logical names.

* WHAT ABOUT CIVIL WARS?

You might see two Spains and two Indias. That's the only part where I think the mod can become somewhat strange, but after a while you will get used to it - civil wars rarely last long, and you can always know which tag is which by looking at map color, flag, or ideology. A small price to pay for no longer seeing a massive "Nationalist Spain" for the rest of the game.

Aren't they also known as Congo-Leopoldville and Congo-Brazaville in real life? I could change them to Congo and Democratic Congo or something.

Hi Enriador, I'm flattered by the credit in your change notes. But It may be better not to integrate party names fix into your mod. It makes your mod conflict with most mods dedicated to party naming. It is not compatible with my mod, for example. CSRZ and my mod also will keep changing and adjusting party names. Mod conflict could obstruct implementing these new changes.

It sounds so cool! Looking forward to it, then.
Enriador  [author] Mar 2 @ 4:14pm 
Yes.

I will only release it when every starting leader (e.g. from Hitler to Barclay) already has one, plus the alternate leaders from countries with focus trees (from Himmler to Chamberlain). Then I might do for alternate leaders from obscure paths (like Plinio Salgado in Brazil).

Hm... I think I won't vote in the poll because it doesn't really matter to me what descriptions the leaders will have. Oh, will you do it for ALL the leaders? Nicaragua president? Liberia president? And so on?
Enriador  [author] Mar 2 @ 4:11pm 
Yup, that's the idea! Leaders in HOI4 *can* have custom descriptions (as they do in Kaiserreich) but Paradox simply never uses it.

I see. So I was getting the wrong information this whole time. That's the school systems for you! Why the poll, though? Do you want to change the descriptions of all the leaders?
