Deutschland Erwache attempts to provide a detailed, historically accurate focus tree that is also balanced gameplay wise. It adds a large amount of historical and ahistorical options for expansion and politics in Germany, but all ahistorical options are realistic and were possible at the time. From the die-hard historian to the alternate-history enthusiast to the casual player, this mod makes itself enjoyable for all types.

Why Deutschland Erwache?
Deutschland Erwache is (in my albiet biased opinion) the best national focus mod for Germany that does not change the entire time period. It is by far the largest focus mod for Germany available, with 195 brand new focuses in addition to several from the original tree. The size of the tree is caused by the vast amount of options it gives the player. Not only can you go down a strictly historical path, but you can also go down alternitive paths if you so wish. This flexibility in choice is something that is not offered by any other mods. Every focus is based off of something that did, or realistically could have happened in Germany during this time period. Most importantly, this mod strikes a balance between historical accuracy and in-game balance. All of these factors make Deutschland Erwache the premier mod for modifying the German national focus tree.

Key Changes Made by This Mod
  1. New Economics and Industrial Tree that reflects the German recovery from the great depression and its economic development.
  2. New Lebensraum tree that allows for the coring of multiple different occupied territories. This tree also reflects Generalplan Ost and the German administration of eastern territories historicallly.
  3. New political tree that allows you to either expand your fascist grip on Germany or arrest Hitler and change Germany's politics. Each political tree is fleshed out with respective events, decisions, ideas, and foci that allow for the shaping of pre or post war Europe.
  4. New fleshed out units! SS for fascists, Freikorps for monarchists, Bundesgrenzschutzen (border guards) for democrats, and Grenzerdivisions for communists.
  5. New National spirits that provide bonuses and penalties, as to reflect Germany's strengths and weaknesses at this time.
  6. Massive expansion tree that incorporates technology bonuses. Just like how Germany operated during the war, your ability to make leaps in technology is based off of your warfare: more expansion = more technology!
  7. Special series of foci devoted to the invasions of France, the Benelux, Scandinavia, Poland, Yugoslavia, Greece, Romania, Turkey, the Soviet Union, and Italy.
  8. All focus options are based on what happened, or what realistically could have happened, in reality.
  9. New Fourth Reich political tree! Allows for an overthrow of Hitler (with a high chance of civil war), leading into a tree that restores either Kaiser Wilhelm the II or his son, Wilhelm the III. From there, several bonuses allow your country to grow along with several foci that encompass the reclaiming of former German core states and colonies around the world.

I have a little suggestion. You should add more reichskommisariats, like moskowien, siberien and america.

when you are copying the files in RT56 folder is it just a simple copy and paste or do you need to do be a bit more technical than that?

Fantastic work on this tree, basically the default Germany tree i use these days. Would love to see a Naval Section added to either go down uboot or kriegsmarine doctrine.

The communist focuses that require 40% Support don't do anything from my experience. I don't even get a popup saying they decline. Nothing happens. For both East and West.

i must say your focus tree quality is quite good! it is a waste that you haven't done to other countries that severly lack this deep in details stuff, like italy or the soviet union, you should really continue doing good stuff like this to other countries
