Good Afternoon!

Road to 56 is a DLC-sized Frankenstein that has been riveted together for your convenience and pleasure. Here are the lovely details:

New Focuses
  • Argentina, Armenia, Austria, Belgium, Bhutan, Brazil, Bulgaria, Chile, China, Colombia, Congo, Crimea, Croatia, Cuba, Czechoslovakia, Danzig, Denmark, Estonia, Ethiopia, Finland, France, Free France, Germany, Greece, Guatemala, Honduras, Indochina, Indonesia, Italy, Iran, Iraq, Ireland, Japan, Latvia, Luxembourg, Malaysia, Netherlands, Nicaragua, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Portugal, Russia, Ruthenia, Saudi Arabia, Serbia, Slovakia, Siam, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Tibet, Turkey, Vietnam, United Kingdom, Uruguay, and the USA have all been overhauled with new events and shenanigans. *gasp*

Expanded Tech Tree
  • Now your scientists will earn their pay and keep working until the end of the war.

Timeline Extension
  • The game runs to 1956. I mean, you were expecting that. Right?

Enhanced Non-Historical Outcomes
  • Road to 56 is all about alternate history and giving you lots of options to make a new world. If you want to run a purely historical game, this is not the mod for you.

...and More!
  • New units, troop experience system, expanded difficulty modifiers, new releasable nations, more lovely laws, and a whole bunch of other things that will make you more popular at parties.

This is what's next:

Yes, I'm single. We just met though. Isn't it a bit fast?

Serious note: Use other mods with '56 at your own risk. Support is not provided for issues related to conflicts.

Use the Bug Reports thread to post about your issues. There are many solutions to be found there. The main thread here is not for reporting bugs!

Also, you should try some of the following if you're having issues:
  • Check the other mods you're using. There's a very high chance this is the cause.
  • Purge your cache
  • Restart your computer
  • Start a new save file

Feel free to contact us!
  • Greatexperiment: The Original Dude. 110% likely to be the guy.
  • Thinking_Waffle: The most historical of all.
  • JudgeAlfred: Don't ask him about the Alps Defense Pact. Just, really.
  • Indyclone77: Sooty Fan #3
  • SpicyAlfredo: Knows far too much about Canadian hockey, apparently.
  • Plutozz: Master of Updates
  • Abbus: Knows Arcane secrets.
  • Darkneon: Voted most likely to welcome you to the Thunderdome.
  • TheHistoria94: Mysterious. Very mysterious indeed.
  • Pordy: Probably, maybe, kinda sorta is about to level up.
  • Featherus: Is actually a dragon, not a bird.
There's also a Discord, if that's your sort of thing:
I've set up a repository on GitHub and anyone can now contribute. Small submissions and bug fixes are especially welcome. Please be sure to very carefully follow the readme, and contact me (Greatexperiment!) on Discord if you have questions or comments.

Thanks! Have a wonderful day!

I'm unable to enable the mod in the launcher, every time I try to do so it switches back to disabled. Red triangle by the mod name. I've tried reinstalling.

Noticed a bug, I was Italy and pushing into South Africa, they completed a focus to take over control of the African colonies despite the fact that I had occupied the British African colonies in war and then they got control of it which messed up the supply and forced me to reoccupy the land. Not game breaking just somewhat annoying, thanks for all y'alls hard work!

1. go to "steamapps\workshop\content\394360\820260968"
2. delete "1956_beta.mod"
3. edit "descriptor.mod" make sure it look like this

"Alternative History"
"National Focuses"
name="The Road to 56"

4. go to "Documents\Paradox Interactive\Hearts of Iron IV"
5. delete "mods_registry.json"
6. go to "Documents\Paradox Interactive\Hearts of Iron IV\mod"

Is it normal that Germany doesn't declare war on Poland after they picked danzig or war?

Normally a few months after the switch to 1.9. In any case I won't do that myself.
