Hearts of Iron: 1984

Nuclear warfare has ravaged much of the world, and from the ashes came the new world order. The three remaining super-states vie for global domination: Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia, and between them lies the Disputed Zone. An armistice has been declared, but on January 1st, 1984, the truce shall expire and the second apocalyptic war will begin.

This mod utilizes the setting from the George Orwell novel “Nineteen Eighty-Four” to create a more competitive multiplayer scenario designed for a massive three-way war between teams of players, with the likelihood of developing shifting temporary truces between the factions to achieve short-term goals. The fourth faction, the Resistance, exists to serve as a focal point of the war, as most of the world’s resources lie within the borders of the Disputed Zone, creating a high priority target for the other three factions. Playing as a Resistance nation in multiplayer is exceptionally difficult but still a fun experience. They can become very powerful if they survive past 1984 so it is highly encouraged for the 3 totalitarian factions to destroy them prior to this.

The goal of this mod was to create an intriguing, balanced, and stable multiplayer scenario. So it is very light on events and may not be for everybody. The single player experience may also be too easy without boosting other countries. The stories you will create will not come from alternative history "what-ifs", but purely from your own strategic choices and actions on the battlefield.

Here is my recommended multiplayer setup, feel free to ignore and do your own thing but this is guaranteed to be fun or your money back:
-Use the 2nd bookmark (Standard mode)
-Enable coop play and hotjoin
-Oceania, Eurasia, Eastasia: Minimum 2 players per country, but 3 per country is recommended
-Resistance nations: 1 player per country
-When resistance nations are eliminated they are encouraged to hotjoin into a totalitarian country, as they cannot be puppeted or even fully annexed.
-If you do not have enough players, it is recommended to leave the free nations as AI.
-No other house rules are necessary.

Hey, people who don't listen: The modder is a parent. If you so desperately want an update, then go to properties, Beat, and hit Cornflakes. Problem solved!

Hey Mate, First of all Thank You for this wonderful mod. I always wanted to dip my toes into the world of 1984, and you made that dream into Reality.
Now, take as much Time as you want (obviously give your time to your life and do the modding in free time). I haven't played this for some time, but if you can, can you please add a system where I can make any State into a democracy through Focus Tree? Maybe restore the United States of America under and re-establish world as America and save it from Extreme Orwellian Authoritarianism? Thank you again!
