[] Make sure your infrastructure can support your forces in the region, this includes ports.
[] Garrison your ports. 1.5 has increased AI sneakiness.
[] You don't start with much freedom of division templates, but you'll get enough XP through the focus tree. (addressed next update)

-- Compatibility --

[] The following files have been overwritten, and thus are compatibility concerns:
\common\ideas | denmark.txt finland.txt norway.txt sweden.txt
\history\states, all states which belong to the NFD at game start had to be edited
Mods that edit these files, should be given priority in load-order so that my mod may override their changes.

[] Example: Road to 56
This mod edits the mentioned files. Thus it must be given load priority over my mod.
Go to "Documents\Paradox Interactive\Hearts of Iron IV\mod"
find "ugc_820260968.mod", open it with notepad
change name to "! The Road to 56", or anything that'll make it show up higher than my mod in the launcher

-- Misc --

[] Older HoI4 versions: There is no version for 1.4.*, however the old version (linked) should work on all versions 1.0.* until 1.3.*.

Yes, I was playing multiplayer, but thanks :)

This mod is supposed to be played by a human, as there are almost no AI weights set for it. Were you playing MP perhaps?

Still, a bug is a bug. The problem with this one is that touching Germany would introduce a compatibility problem. I'll take a look and see what can be done.

When you play as Germany you import Tungsten from Sweden by default. If you use this mod simultaneously then Sweden disappears, so you can't cancel the import. Could you remove that import or change it to import from the Nordic Federation?

I played the mod, and i actually grew fond of it too..
And I love how when you choose the capital, it says "Copenhagen, duh!" as one of the options.

Skål, min ven!

@Papa Putin

Haven't put much thought into it and it's not a priority for the next update, for now it'll probably just be a federation of kingdoms if one wants an absolutist monarchy, can be expanded later but so far I lack ideas for that path.
I got the current colour by accident when I messed up all colours, and decided to roll with it... now I grew too fond of the colour to change it. It's really simple to modify it though, so I can help anyone who'd want to make it a submod.

Who is the king of such a federation? I hope it's Christian X von Glücksburg.
And could you change the colour to the Scandiavian blue of EU4?

I'm working on expanding the political paths, to include some sort of monarchy and a red path. But mostly building up on the Baltic relations, I think there are some interesting plausibilities there. The non-political part of the tree may get tweaked, but not planning on expanding it. Everything is open to feedback and ideas though.

tag is NFD, you can use "tdebug" command to see tags on the map

Do you plan on expanding the focus tree much more? And whats the Country Tag? I really love this mod, missed it while it was gone, great to see it back again

I can look into that for a future update. One issue however is that Finland would not be in favour nor of absolute monarchy nor of a communist regime (which is why I didn't include that path either), which could lead to a crisis in the Federation. Mannerheim for example left Finland at some point because of something related, and returned after it got solved. Could be intersting, but a lot of work involved.

Indeed, together they are a 2nd rate power such as Italy, which makes for interesting scenarios in my opinion.

I've notied it as well, but it'll have to wait until a future update.
I tried finding nicknames for aces but only found one historical, so during testing all my aces had the same nickname... I ended up adding the default ones to that list.
Also need to look at admirals at some point.

@Evoken @BoxyNinja(CHANNNGE)
Thanks for the interest!

I see the Nordics don't have a division namelist. Can you slave it to whichever country you used to create the federation?
