Soviet Union Expanded Focus Tree

Works in 1.5.3

Руский перевод сделано Kaiser Wilhelm II
Not Ironman/achievement compatible
This mod is not compatible with Road to 56 because it has a custom focus tree for the Soviet Union.
Now works without Waking the Tiger.


The vanilla focus tree for the Soviet Union is well made for those who want to do a communist playthrough. Unfortunately, there are no focuses dedicated to any other ideology. This mod was created to expand on the vanilla tree to add somewhat plausible fascist and democratic options. The tree allows you to reform the Russian Empire or to give up revolutionary marxism in pursuit of a more moderate democratic socialism. The mod also will not interfere with the vanilla game if the Soviet Union is played by an AI, so it should work well in multiplayer and with focus tree mods for other countries.

  • New focus tree branches dedicated to fascist and democratic playthroughs
  • Several new event chains to add flavor
  • Some new decisions to add flavor (more to come)
  • A new country, new country leaders
Future plans:
  • More decisions: political, economic, military
  • More focuses: the current amount could be more expansive
  • Adapting the generals and admirals to make sense for different ideologies, as well as add new generals
Updates Since Release:
  • Event Chain for a democratic election allowing for either Bukharin or Kerensky to be elected
  • New improved portraits
  • New events
  • Fixed mentioned bugs: civil war, japan focus, reform decisions, empty news event
  • Changes: Increased chance that US will cede alaska, streamlined mod for more compatibility
Portraits created by Lugash
Scripting done by Sangre

Recommended Mod: Music of the Russian Empire by Kaiser Wilhelm II

@☭Советский Союз I I haven't had that issue, and I haven't had anyone else report it either. Are you sure it is not because of incompatibility from another mod?
I just Installed mod. and Every time,when i researching focus for Conquest of Iran or just declaring war. this fucking mod crashes my game. WTF with this mod?

@AlBootYerBaws It's definitely something I looked into. I'll ask the artist for the mod if that is something he would be willing to do.

Cheers for reply! Another thing I forgot to ask is icons, we already have veterancy icons from a different mod , will you also add theatre icons for the Red Army?

@AlBootYerBaws As for advisors, that is already in the works.

@AlBootYerBaws I don't think I will be adding more generals for the Soviet Union. I am planning on adjusting the general list for democratic and fascist ideology changes in the future.
