About Hearts of Iron III: Modern Warfare Beta 5 with 31 comments by PlayerHOI on May 31st, 2014

Hi everyone,

The wait is over, Beta 4 is now available for download!

The download contains a single installer which will do all that is needed to install the mod on top of your vanilla game, please note that this is still a beta version so it is not complete and many aspects still need work/balancing and attention.

Screenshots removed to due a bizarre compulsion of people to think these represented the world map at the beginning of the mod.

Beta 4 is an ambitious update for Hearts of Iron 3 and this mod is currently the only mod to bring you a whole new map to play on, don't forget to report any issues you encounter either with the mod or the installer on the forums

That is all for now, beta 5 will be an even more exciting update for Modern Warfare so there is still a lot to look for.

This looks to me to be a very detailed extension to the original game. My interest is in the Far East, in particular Japan, but also China. However, it seems to me to be almost impossible to progress as Japan past the Marco Polo bridge incident. There are simply too many Chinese units from all allied nations, with defensive and indeed offensive capabilities that seem to me unlikely. Or the Japanese units simply are not strong enough for some reason. I played building the Japanese army on the basis of cheat codes to a phenomenal strength and even then it was not strong enough to beat the Chinese past Beiping. Playing as Nationalist China is equally as unrewarding, being easily beaten by far superior Japanese and allied forces (the Manchurian forces do very little when playing as Japan). So I think there is an Ai issue to be resolved in these cases.
