The BlackICE Team

While contributions to BlackICE have been made by dozens of passionate, dedicated modders over the years, there is a core team that handles game-balance, event management, software builds, distribution, and general direction of the mod. Please see the in-game credits for a detailed list! Everyone on the BlackICE team is a bona-fide history fanatic, with a love and passion for trying to create an experience that both educates and is fun to play.

A great new "let's Play" series of BICE with the TRE submod by Gamer_1745

"I would like to let everyone know that I have started a 'Let's Play' series of HoI3 with BlackICE & TRE. I saw that there were many Let's Play videos of BICE, but seemingly none with Third Reich Events or the other sub-mods. This play though is with BlackICE 7.54, TRE 3.47, GGA, Tanganyika! & TheDWorm's event mods. Parts 1 & 2 have been posted.

I have mainly done this to promote TRE to those who haven't played it yet. It is a tutorial on how I play the game and the first video cover's the setup/starting of BICE. It should also be of interest to those who have already played TRE to see my point of view and hear me talk about the game. After Part 1 I will try to keep the pace up so that it will be interesting to watch.
