Can we please get the latest version as a download here? nice and simple?

No need to hide 8.5 and the 8.5.3 one behind some forum that nobody asked for and let people download 1,8GB with 10kb/s that takes 2 days while your own installer does not even work. Wow, first time using the internet?

Why not upload it here on moddb on a mirror where people actually can get the mod? seriously you're such great modders but upload worse than a 10y old. Just do it like before and not with trash mirrors. Nice and simple where anyone can easily see and download it, it isn't that hard mate. Otherwise just make a torrent.

why don't you just buy the game and register on the paradox game forum mate ? Take a little adult responsibility for your actions and show some support for the company which made the game which we mod and you get to play. Might I add you get to download BICE for free. Your not a 10 year old are you ? So grow up and stop whinging about a free mod.

I have. The installer on those forums doesn't work.

I definitely agree. I hate paradox's website [for obvious reasons...]. This is easily in my top three mods for any game but 8.4 is unplayable because it, I can only presume, overloads the available RAM [even with the patch] and then just crashes every 20 or so minutes. I assume it has something to do with the RAM because if I play as the U.S. and only look at America, it'll last for hours, but if I scroll over the whole world and then open all the menus, it will crash. I have no idea if 8.52 is any better but different versions of this mod tend to have different issues. I'm hoping that is the case here. However, I cannot try it because paradox plaza is useless and will let me look at an HoI mod, it seems, except this one.

The BICE team who is now working on HOI3 BICE ahave recently released version 9 on the paradox forums. Its a new team since we have moved onto HOI IV BICE. They are based on the paradox forum so you will need to check in there for the new versions and any questions on HOI3 BICE directed to them.

When is 8.5.3 coming to moddb? I always get a permission error when I go to paradox plaza.

Basically you have to be officially signed into the Paradox Forums by registering your game.
