What does Black ICE add to HOI3?

  • Literally hundreds of events, both from ICE (optimised for FTM and the Community Map Project) as well as many new custom made events. Includes many events for all the majors and specific theatre events such as Barbarossa and North Africa.
  • 80+ unique techs (many from ICE)
  • 70+ unique units (including SS and Soviet Guards)
  • New loading screens and sound effects thanks to Antenociti and Death6
  • Thousand hours of bug fixes and play balance building on the unique units and techs from Mk V to Patch 10
  • 100's of ICE events and new customised events.

24 comments by PANZEROO on Dec 3rd, 2014

After the release of 7.23 on top of 7.03 version the BICE team have kept busy.
A new version is in the works with further refinements to all the infantry based units stat balance. All infantry units from Communist Militia, to Luftwaffe infantry to mechanized infantry and air landing infantry are now upgraded by either a Light Infantry Branch tech, Standard Infantry Branch or a Special Forces Branch. This means it is possible to develop elite Special Forces and neglect your militia or cavalry units. A minor nation might choose to focus on ski troops and ignore standard infantry development.Also transport ships are being radically reworked. The normal transport ship unit will now be incapable of amphibious invasions. You will have to develop more specialised landing craft and assault ship units, or rely on the risky auxiliary vessels ( civilian ships such as barges and fishing vessels).Also work has been made on bug fixing and more game balance issues. For example the weather buildings effects have been substantially reduced. High level weather effects will still be problematic, but normal effects will be more a nuisance. Trade has also been made somewhat less harsh. Aiming for a release some time before Christmas ( and that's a promise :) )

I'm not the brightest one when it comes to downloading mods but it says not to download hoi3 in C:\PROGRAM FILES on the installation page on the blackICE website. How do you put a steam game on to lets say C:\Games?

Save editing seems to make the save unusable now, I wanted to add a couple of Italian provinces into Yugoslavia's core but the game crushes every time i want to load the edited save. Is there any other ways to do that?

btw thanks for answering my question about the engines not being researchable because i forgot to check the decisions. :)

you must have done it wrong
I've previously added cores to all provinces in the world, and it was completely playable.

you have installed incorrectly and/ or have old BICE files causing a conflict. Manually delete the Black ICE folder in TFH/mods and any previous BICE launchers. Reinstall.
