Hi everyone,

As you all know, the development of the mod been officially suspended but I wasn't satisfied with the state I left the mod at for people to play. The biggest thing that bothered me was performance and stability of the mod which was not very good.

Indeed, from the moment I introduced the East vs West map into the mod I've noticed that performance has gone down but at that point I assumed there was another cause... The final release of Beta 6 has shown that the map was just too much for the game to handle on top of all the other additions the mod has introduced to the game.

That is why I have been busy for the past couple of weeks with porting the Hearts of Iron 4 map into the mod as an alternative map that could improve the performance and put an end to the lag that has been plaguing the mod since Beta 4 when the new map was introduced.

I won't go into too many details now but the new HOI4 map has reduced the number of provinces from around 18,226 to a much easier to handle 13,000 and the improvement is felt considerably.

I am working on the new version part time but will still try to deliver it as quickly as possible, not announcing any features yet or giving a release date but here are the core things I plan to focus on with this update:

  • New map with less provinces but MUCH better performance (thank you HOI4 at least you are good for something).
  • Improve the UN Security Council mechanics and include some new resolutions that could take the world into a more ahistorical path.
  • Finish the bookmarks all the way to the 2011 bookmark (the beginning of the Syrian civil war)
  • Interface fixes and changes (counters, text size and etc)
  • Many other small quality of life changes
  • Finish localization where missing
  • Add more model images for various countries

That is all for now, I will update you all as new come by... Thank you again everyone who played the mod and everyone who helped me with the development over the years.

P.S: The mod now has 666 followers... interesting :)

Hello, love to hear about the updates actually comming!

but i was wondering, will you have both the "Massive" HoI 3 map avaible for download and the better performance one aswell?

I loved HoI for being just massive, and i'd love to have a long and harsh World war 3 in Russia or a complex Africa compared to what HoI 4 offered.

Othervise, love the mod.

Unfortunately no,

Since the map is such a core concept of the game which affects pretty much EVERYTHING (except for techs maybe) I would be required to create two versions of the mod in order to have two maps available.

Keeping this up is not worth the time or effort. So with Beta 7 you will only be playing on the new map which was downsized from 14,000 provinces to around 6000.

However areas which have strategic importance or were historically battle zones will have a proper amount of provinces to allow tactical and strategic planning and fighting (plenty of provinces to fight in Russia).

Right now my limit is to go as high as 10,000... Anything beyond that will probably cause the game to lag so the mod is open to additions in the future as far as the map is concerned.

Sounds like the installer can't find your game directory.

Could you please do the following:

Locate the launcher.exe file

Right click on it

Copy the path you see in 'location' and paste it here...

At what point of the installation does this happen?

Did you point the installer to the root HOI3 folder as the installer instructs?
