KR Submod: Sensible Byzantine Restoration

While Greece has one of the more detailed focus trees in Kaiserreich and certainly in the Balkans, there isn't really a reward for 'winning', beating the Bulgarians and Ottomans and fulfilling the Megali idea. However, I didn't want to make a meme mod where you can get cores on territory which haven't had a Greek population for centuries. This mod allows you to resurrect the Byzantine empire, but mostly in name. You can get cores on the Asia Minor coast, as there was still a considerable Greek minority in this area in KR (the OTL population exchanges haven't taken place).


An event that allows you to declare yourself the successor to Byzantium. It requires you to be a kingdom (you must have either king Alexandros, Georios or Pavlos) and own (not control) Constantinople. You can't have a Syndicalist aligned goverment, although you might get away with electing the Agrarians (I haven't actually tested this).

An event about restoring the Hagia Sofia to an Orthodox church. It gives some stability and war support, but is mostly there for flavour.

An event about Greek mobs terrorising Turks in Constantinople and Asia Minor.

An event about refugees from Russia if a civil war breaks out or if the Bolsheviks take over or from Ukraine it goes Totalist.


A focus comparable to the "Greece is whole" focus for Byzantium for controlling all Greek territory.

A focus about improving infrastructure in the newly conquered territories.

A focus giving some factories in the newly conquered territories.

A focus replacing the "Legacy of Alexander" idea with a better version if you core all Greek territory.


Three decisions for war crimes 'culture conversion' of the Asia minor coast. In order to have these decisions available, you MUST have let the Russian / Ukrainian refugees in.


The Kaiserreich team for making an amazing mod.


There might still be some bugs, please report them so I can fix them as soon as possible.

This mod alters the Greek events, decisions and focus tree, so the mod should be compatible with anything that doesn't alter any of those.

the byz.5 event is triggering the gre.5 event every year instead of byz.5 (empire day) and the gre.5 is the black monday event and it hurts!

Next problem I might have found was that the shipbuilding decision doesnt appear anymore, sorry to bring on top of one another like that

@Kiddo I found the problem, I made a spelling mistake in the decisions file, I'll upload a fix shortly.

I chose the lower third option of the event where you can subsidise them and then went for Alexander I path. yet the decision doesnt appear for me. Please dont tell me to reinstal hoi4 it was a hastle last time :p

@Kiddo I tested this when I did a full playthrough after the last patch and just tested it and the focus fires the event that allows you to pick the choice of removing, reducing or subsidising the German and Austrian industry works correctly for me. If you pick the top choice the industries get remove completely but you get a trade embargo and potential sanctions from Germany and Austria.

@Qetnuh you have to either cause the monarchists to win the referendum (there are loads of event choices that will make this more likely) or get king Pavlos. I've never gone down Pavlos' path myself but I believe it's related to delaying the referendum too long and getting one of the coups.

something I just realised, why can I not remove the German and Austrian Industry from Greece?
