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.

@𝕰𝖓𝖒𝖊𝖗𝖐𝖆𝖗 I did out the calculations and, given the plans of Generalplan Ost as per German documentation, about 600,000 of the people that would have been displaced or killed by the operation would have been fit for service. Iirc that is about 0.5% of total people in the areas affected.

@PriidikPlayz I have been planning on waiting for the new update. The devs are going to be adding new country tags, which will allow me to not have to create new country tags. I would have already, but that would severely restrict this mod's compatibility and I want to ensure as good of a playing experience as possible.

@El.bar.de.los.muchachos I agree, but I still have to balance modding with work and school unfortunately. I'll work on overhauling the Generic focus mod, though. I think it has some work that needs to be done.

@johncochrane007 Expert AI is effectively totally uncompatible with most mods, simply because they change so much of the game. See their modding page and they say it themselves.

@Terminator_Plays Agreed.
