After the cancellation of East vs West, I focus now again on my own Mods.
To see where I can improve it next and finally play the Mod myself again, I thought it might be nice to write about it in an AAR to show how this Mod could be played and explain some of its features.
I'll play with Germany and focus on an overall build up of all forces(Army/Navy/Air Force) and of course try to defeat the allies and aid my possible axis partners wich will be hopefully the historical ones. Maybe we can do some fun invasions in South America too..

So if you like, join me in my struggle to survive the years.
Also if you have suggestions, ideas, now it is again a good time to point out those, as I'm back on modding.
For the AAR click -> :Achtung Achtung! We will get a first look at the game now! Achtung, Achung!

About the AHOI-Mod:
It is one of the main mods for Hearts of Iron III, and maybe the one with most innovations in many areas.
First mod that added railroads, new Divsional System, has an unique widescreen GUI, "Elite" and Guard units, double the techs as vanilla and completely rewritten Lua code in some areas(Over 10k lines of new code), and much more.
Have a look: Click -> AHOI-Mod "Teasure-Chest" at ModDB

Go get it, there are often sales actions ongoing where you can get it even with the add-ons for €~8-20..
With the latest add-on it is quite fun. Even more if you try one of the Mods with it.

This game is awful by comparison to the second, that should be on here as well.

I think it's better than the second game now, if you have the Semper Fi and/or For the Motherland expansions.

There are many Mods out there. But so far not many here.
The most Mods are at the paradox forum.
But some are also available in home language forums for french, italian, spanish and german.

couldn't figure out anything about the management in 2 hours. usually I'm good at this, but this game is a chaos. the in-game tutorial didn't help. it's maybe a good refresher to those, who played HoI 2.
how can I learn to play this game?

It's easy! You need to know several things:

1. The pace is bloody slow
2. You will get screwed if you're not prepared to go to war
3. You're managing the economy, politics, diplomacy and others! Hey, think about it!
4. ???
5. Profit!
