AHOI Mod TFH 404

Deutsch weiter unten!..

At Christmas again a new patch wich adresses some more minor issues from the mod and improving it further.
I hope all those who reported bugs/issues find that fixed. If not, I might just not have the time yet.
But it can't hurt to remind me.
Below you find the changelog. The mod should by now play more refined and have still the old fun.

Patchlog for 4.04:
All over all I'm not quite sure what much I did since last official version of 4.02c.
I was in a major overhaul as I had to stopp modding in October 2015 and now just wanted to share what I've done since.
Lets have a look at what I remember:

12,232 changed files
Many of them only provinces wich got railroad switched with roads to trick the engine. Infra lvl wise nothing changed. trick didn't work so I need to do it the really hard way and implement anoter more work intense solution. But then we'll get also highways and maybe another type of railway that was only "planned" by Germany..
All you need to know is, RR give actually the old Infra bonus from roads and vice versa!

But also:
-MAN should now declare war against NatCHI and Japan only fully joins in later.. I had also done quite some province changes, e.g. in China to help the ai do a more historic war over there. But it is not done/balanced yet.
-OOB's were adjusted
-Techs slightly adjusted
-Added some of deltablues additions for unit modells.
-Added some of deltablues techs pictures for some techs.
-Added "Hjalfnars Marine update" for better historical ship start techs.
-Added some own changes for FRA ships according to "Hjalfnars Marine update".
-Tweaked unit upgrade paths
-Changed some dependencies path drawings in Pz-Tech screen
-Changed production limits of units to work some better.
-Tweaked some techs stats(start date, gains).
-Units give more practicals so you don't loose to much production experience anymore.
-Unit counters got new wooden look
-Changed loading screens again, other cool pics..
-Changed some text for UI.
-Tweaked some values in static_modifiers
-Tweaked some values in strategic_resources
-Tweaked some values in defines.lua
-Added some events to help divide Yugoslavia between axis powers to prevent supply problems.
-Added Rasputitia. You will have two times a year a severe problem with suppy in center russia because of the mud season.
-Added Huang He flooding. As CHI flooded the Huang He river to slow down the JAP adavance, you and the ai can do that now too.
-Added a new system on how to install the mod to have it easier for all of you to install the mod and being sure to have it done right.

And propably much more..

Patchlog for 4.03:
Is included in that of 4.04.
Older patchlog can be senn in the readme.txt..

jap 404


Zu Weihnachten wieder ein weiterer Patch der einige Kleinigkeiten verbessern sollte. Ich hoffe ich habe alle Dinge bereingen können die mir berichtet wurden. Wenn nicht, dann kann es sein , daß ich noch keine Zeit dazu hatte, Aber es schadet bestimt auch nicht, wenn Ihr mich noch einal daran erinnert. ;)

"Patchlog 4.04:"

"Ich bin mir nicht ganz sicher was sich alles seit der letzten offiziellen 4.02c Version geändert hat. Der Patch 4.3 war ja eigentlich nur für die Tester gedacht.
Ich war ja dabei einiges Neues zu testen als mir im Oktober die Zeit zum Modden ausging. Also gibt es jetzt halt erst einmal alles was sich seit der Version 4.02c geändert hat.
Ich liste mal alles auf, an was ich mich erinnere:

12.232 geänderte Dateien..
Viele von denen sind nur Provinzen die die Gebäude Eisenbahn und Straßen getauscht bekommen haben um die engine auszutricksen. Für die Infra auf der auf der Karte hat sich dabei nichts geändert. Der Trick hat aber auch keine gewünschte Effekte gebracht und ich werde das in der nächsten Version wieder korrigieren. Damit kommen dann halt ein neues schwieriger einzubauendes System neue Gebäude wie Autobahn und eine neue Art der Eisenbahn die nur von Deutschland angedacht war. Das gab es bislang ja nur als Technologien, die dann in der Art überflüssig werden. Wichtig für den jetzigen Stand ist nur, dass die Eisenbahn den Bonus von Straßen gibt und umgekehrt!

Weitere Änderungen:
-MAN wird jetzt Krieg gegen CHI erklären und JAP kommt erst später dazu. Einige Provinzen haben den Besitzer gewechselt um der KI zu helfen einen historischeren Verlauf zu folgen. Aber das ist noch nicht ausbalanciert.
-OOB's wurden angepasst
-Technologien angepasst
-Einige von deltablues Änderungen für Einheiten übernommen
-Einige von deltablues Änderungen für Technologiebilder übernommen
-Einige von "Hjalfnars Marine update" für bessere historische ausgestattete Marinen der Hauptländer übernommen
-Einige weitere Marineänderungen für FRA wie bei "Hjalfnars Marine update"
-Einheiten Upgrade Möglichkeiten angepasst
-Einige Technologievorraussetzungspfeile in den Technologiebildschirm Panzer angepasst
-Produktionslimit für Einheiten wieder geändert
-Einige Auswirkungen und Startjahre von Technologien geändert
-Einheiten geben mehr praktische Erfahrung bei der Produktion. Also verliert man jetzt diese Erfahrung nicht mehr so leicht.
-Einheiten-Counter haben einen neuen durchscheinenden Holzhintergrund
-Ladebildschirme geändert
-Die GUI hat ein paar neue Texte bekommen
-Werte in den static_modifiers angepasst
-Werte in den strategic_resources angepasst
-Werte in der defines.lua angepasst
-Ein paar Events um Jugoslawien nach der Eroberung durch die Achsenmächte unter diesen auszuteilen um die Versorgungslage für die KI zu vereinfachen
-Rasputitia Events hinzugefügt. Zweimal im Jahr wird man nun aufgrund der Schlammperiode extreme(!) Versorgungsprobleme in Zentralrussland haben
-Huang He Flut Event hinzugefügt. Als CHI kann man nun wie historisch geschehen die Deiche des Gelben Flusses sprengen und weite Regionen überschwemmen. Das senkt die Infra dort massiv und erschwert JAP den Vormarsch ins Hinterland
-Ein neues System zur Mod-Installation. Dadurch wird es einfacher den Mod zu installieren -man muss nichts mehr löschen, kann aber weiterhin-, es kann keine Überschneidungen mit alten Installationen des Mod mehr geben und man kann sich leichter sicher sein alles richtig installiert zu haben.

Und sehr wahrscheinlich eine Menge weiterer Dinge..

"Patchlog 4.04:"
Ist in das von 4.04 mit eingeflossen.

But it cannot describe truly what happened in China during the war. In the game, there isnot Xi'an Incident, Chiang Keiz-shek always surrenders after several mounths from Marco Polo Bridge Incident. The CPC evev will not join the war! Mao Zedong and his the eighth route army and the fourth route army cannot do anything. The units of KMT are too less to fight against Japanese. A Chinese mod, Historical Memory, describes these truly. I hope these problems can be sloved in HOI4. Thanks.

Yay finland.

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.

Have to agree on this, only way I ever saw Japan win was putting their AI up a notch.
I even tried to supply them with 500IC and a hefty group of light and mountain infantry, but even with a substantial Expeditionary force from germany, not to mention complete blockade of china and constant terror bombing the progress was negligible. :/
