HOI4: Nerves of Steel (ALPHA)

Description
THIS MOD IS IN ALPHA

BITTEN OFF MORE THAN ONE DEVELOPER CAN CHEW
I truly love modding, but this mod is kinda eating away at my actual life to a concerning degree. I will never be able to complete all the work that needs to be done and that I plan on doing on my own, so I am now in search of other modders who are interested in joining my project!

Below is a link to the discord server in which I plan on doing my modding and creating a community for this mod, if you want to help, and even if you don't want or don't know how to mod but want to see how this mod is doing behind the scenes then please consider clicking the link for the discord below.

OVERVIEW:

This mod is an updated and heavily reworked version of my old, now defunct mod, Better National Focuses. BNF was a conglomeration of multiple other mods which I did not create. https://steamcommunity.com/workshop/filedetails/discussion/1913418927/3356799628321383776/. This mod adds several new features such as:

-New Ideologies: Monarchism, Socialism, Social Democracy, Liberalism, and Conservativism
-New map based on files originally from the Beautiful States mod, which is now defunct and whose owner has allowed anyone to use it's files in his absense, bless him.
-Graphics that I personally enjoy and hope are aesthetically pleasing to others as well
-Geniune attempts at a historical experience in the Eastern Front, the Sino-Japanese War, and the Pacific Campaign.
-Historical postwar peace events
-Plans for expansion into new historical senarios, I.E. The Great War and the Cold War
-Complete or Semi-Complete focuses for nearly every country in 1936
-A new and immersive Government Idea system
-A comprehensive force limit system


COMPATIBILITY:

-You can try to use other mods with this but it is honestly very unlikely to work at all. Sorry for the dissapointment.


THE ORIGINAL FILES FOR MANY OF THESE ADDITIONS WERE MADE BY OTHER AUTHORS, FOR ALL MODS WHOSE FILES WERE USED I EITHER HAVE PERMISSION OR THE MODS WERE NO LONGER IN DEVELOPMENT OR DEAD!


PLANS:

-Completely revamp all focus trees and add paths for every ideology
-Fixing any current bugs and minimizing incompatibilities
-Properly expand the 1910 and 1949 start dates


DON'T BE A PRICK.

Glitch: I'm unable to remove any politicians I add, please fix soon as this is pretty obnoxious.

*update* Ok, so yeah, this mod used to be really great, and it certainly still has the potential to be really great, but there are just so many things that are completely broken. USA declared war on Mexico in historical mode, which then put the USA at war with the allies in 1938. Playing as the USSR, my 250 divisions apparently was too much for all of my supply, and every single province along the German border and Stalin line were in the red. Kiev had "450/98" required supply, despite the fact that there were like 15 divisions in the province. All of this was in spring and with level 8 infrastructure, so there is NO reason it should be that bad. I guess I'll just have to wait for more updates, because the current mod is pretty much unplayable.

This mod is a great idea, and it is pretty fun, but some mechanics are game breaking. The "division limit" mechanic seems completely random; as the USSR, it was jumping from 450 to 270 in a day, then back up to like 300. This wouldn't matter, except that going over the division cap automatically downgrades taxes, mobilization law, and several other things.
The German focus tree is broken at the time of writing; the "war with France" focus cannot be used, which also locks several other focuses.
On several occasions, the focus tree I am using has switched to the default focus tree for no reason.
I don't know why, but Germany only makes like 70 divisions by 1940. They had something like 500k men fielded during Barbarossa.

Despite quite a few bugs, still really fun!

Can you add a option to put the color of the puppets as in the vanilla game?? Only the color of course. I don't like that the puppets have the same colour of their owners.
