- The ressources are arranged in the production tab the same way as in the topbar for easier perception.

Eine Grand Strategy Modifikation für Hearts of Iron 3

Die Arbeit an diesem Mod basiert auf der “AHOI-Treasure Mod Familie”.
Generelles Ziel der Mod ist es das Spiel mehr in die Richtung einer Simulation mit historisch plausiblen Hintergrund zu haben.

Eine kurze Beschreibung:
- ~580 Technologien in 22 Ordnern die auch die KI erforscht! (Std-HOI3 hat 286 in 12 Ordner).
- Komplett neue grafische Oberfläche im Holz/Stahl Design mit einer Mindestauflösung von 1280*768. Nun kann man mehr Informationen auf einem Blick sehen und muss nicht mehr soviel scrollen.
- Eine neue Topbar die inhaltlich neu gegliedert wurde und es neuen Spielern erleichtern soll sich zurechtzufinden. Z. B. der Aufbau der Ressourcen ist identisch wie im Produktionsbildschrim.
- Farbliche Kodierung für Werte die zu einem bestimmten Bereich gehören(Diplomatie, Spionage etc.)
- Alarm-Icons und Handelsanfragen werden jetzt rechts der Topbar angezeigt.
- Alarm Icons haben ein erstes neues Design.
- Farbliche Unterscheidung der Spielgeschwindigkeit.
- Im Statistik Bereich werden die Übersichten bei den Einheiten jetzt korrekt angezeigt.(Keine Überschneidungen mehr wie in Std-HOI3)
- Neue Ansichten im Bereich der Einheiten. So haben die Anführer jetzt Ihrer militärischen Zugehörigkeit nach unterschiedliche Abzeichen neben Ihren nun größeren Bildern.
- Der Einheitenproduktionschirm zeigt nun bis zu 33 Komponenten auf einmal.(Keine Probleme mehr mit so vielen Komponenten für Einheiten und Abstürze deswegen.)
- HQ’s haben nun eigene Counter für jede Befehlshaberstufe. (Design orientiert sich an den HQ-Markierungen der dt. Wehrmacht.)
- Neues Entwicklungssystem für Länder (Kleine Länder haben jetzt eine Chance zu den Großen aufzuschließen).
- Einige neue Entscheidungen hinsichtlich Mannstärke.
- 90 zum Teil neue Einheiten (Std-HOI3 hat 48, KI produziert diese auch, Start-OOB’s z. T. angepasst).
- Neues Division-System (eine normale Div besteht jetzt aus 3 bis 9 Regimentern, keine Einheiten mehr in Batallionsgröße [Mit Ausnahme von Commandos]).
- einige Anpassungen der jap/chi/man Grenzen und Ereignisse (China wird nicht mehr so leicht erobert).
- Eliteeinheiten und HQ’s haben einzigartige Counter
- einige Anpassungen zu den Gesetzen.
- einige Anpassungen zu den Kampf Ereignissen.
- einige Anpassungen zu den Basis Spiel Mechaniken definiert in den defines.lua etc. .

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.

You need to have a resolution of the game of minimum 1280*768. ;)
In the options menue of the game you can change that or in the accroding settings.txt of the Mod in the profile folder of your windows account.

When I started it up I clicked on Poland and clicked the start button but the game crashed. It could just be because the version I'm using but idk. Also it looks wonderful! Its like if Hearts of Iron 3 had a child with Europa Universalis 4.

Hi, that is very uncommon, I never had problems with starting as any nation. Did you have crashes with other nations aswell?
