"Most of the North has enjoyed prolonged periods of peace. Their economy has grown well and their military has grown old. And now, once again, Winter is coming. Good Luck."

-- Gameplay recommendations --

[] 1936 Bookmark. Historical mode. Pursue independent path in focus tree.
[] Germany and the United Kingdom are your main trade partners. War between them will have consequences.
[] You can ignore building planes for a while if you purchase foreign ones (decisions).
[] 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, the old focus tree was quite big, but had quite a bit of generic filler. I personally like the new one, it's more compact but has much more personality imo :)
It's also still big enough for the timeframe of the game. A number of foci got relocated into decisions, thus also reducing tree size, though some still require a focus to unlock.

I remember there was a lot more in the focus tree , looking forward to the update!

? The only missing features are the map changes, as they take too much work to update.

Some features had their implementations changed, but are still here and quite improved at that.

I appreciate the interest though. I basically just work on it when I'm into HoI4... if not before, I'd expect to get into it with the next DLC. I've got a lot of work put into the update already, so there'll definitely be a significant update once I get to finishing it, a chunk of it will be a separate addon mod for compatibility reasons though, focused on the Baltic region, got a cool chain based on Lithuanian and Polish "relations" :)

I really hope you update this mod , older mod had a lot more features . I miss it :(
Vaeringjar  [author] May 8 @ 5:42am 
Because I didn't come up with one for the currently available version.

I have the next version mostly complete (since over a month ago lol), just need to find 1-2 days where I can do that and literally nothing else in order to finish it. I have a communist path (two actually, depending on how one wants to relate to the USSR) sketched out on that next version, but not intended for release. I'm just not convinced right now that releasing the communnist path is worth the expected 3 or more days of work that it requires, on top of the other 1-2 days mentioned above. I also rather release no path at all than release a half-assed one.

Why is there not a communist path?

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.
VSPV13 Mar 28 @ 1:00am 
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!
