Focus Tree Backgrounds

This mod upgrades the user interface with new immersive focus tree backgrounds!

Focus Tree Backgrounds, as the title implies, adds a whole array of new art that appear as the background of national focus trees, featuring official HOI4 wallpapers adapted to their appropriate countries for maximum immersion.

Currently, the seven main nations are covered (USA, Soviet Union, Great Britain, France, Germany, Japan, and Italy) plus the Commonwealth and China. Eventually the rest of the countries with focus trees and maybe even all countries in the world get backgrounds. (hopefully!)

Compatible with other mods as long as they have the same tags as the aforementioned nations in-game. However not Ironman-compatible as it features some special scripting that might break it. Thus you and your friends will have to run this mod at the same time if you want to do MP.

Special thanks to Hakurei Reimu for coming up with the original code and posting it in the Mod Coop and Starguard's World of Anime for being the first mod to feature these backgrounds!

@RMD Angel, go ahead if you need any help. I've already given you full permission already.

It's okay, mine will be a separate mod with landmarks and such as the backgrounds. That being said, is it okay if I chat and add you to talk about this?

@RMD Angel, sure! Though I'll be making my own stuff for the minor countries eventually.

Hi! First of all, I'd like to say just how wonderful this mod is. This is a brilliant idea and I'd love to expand upon it. That being said, I'm commenting to ask for permission to use your code and make a similar mod for minor countries. So far, I have pictures for British colonies, all Chinas, Balkan States, Bhutan, and Mongolia. I hope to hear from you soon. Cheers!

Interesting, looks pretty cool!
Idea: Soviet women snipers for Norway, the climate and German tank really fits!

@Aurora: If you use this code for the focus GUI then the custom background shouldn't be affect by moving or zooming anymore: https://pastebin.com/RiQZ4AAh
