The best thing about a secret is a secret adding another secret to a secret collection of secrets. Adding more secrets to an already secret collection of secrets... secretly.

Can somebody from moderators please say at least what season beta 6 is coming out because I've been waiting for 9 months in and out of the game always hoping it's out but nothing. So can SOMEBODY announce something please. Thank you
I wouldn't like to speculate,
The team is small and the tasks are many, on top of that I have plenty of obligations. It will take some time and an announcement will be posted once we have enough done that we can set a release date.
OK Thank you just wanted to find out, because it is basically unplayable like this. And when you finish the job HOI4 will already be out. So :(
I care not for the release of HOI4, people who want to play a modern day scenario will not find what they wish for in Hoi4 anyway so they will play Beta 6 regardless of the release of HOI4.
Also, a mod on such scale for HOI4 can only be made after patches and expansion are out so it will be a VERY long time before you see a mod like this for HOI4 if at all since we all know how well it turned out for HOI3... with the exception of this mod.
Well that's true. I wish you every best and to complete the mod as best and fast as you can
I'm Happy somebody is making this kind of mod
ur mod looks good bro, but just something is bugging me, and that is u spend so little (next to none!) on the center of today's world tension! that be the mid-east! i.e. iran who has been the biggest subject of global discussions and a big challenge for the west in the region for more than a decade, doesnt have any army at all! let alone not including the elite IRGC into the game, the dont even have a millitia battalion! only a theater. shouldnt u work on these countries a little more? Iran, syria, iraq (maybe give it a fighting chance against the invaders -not winning chance but fighting chance- to give a challenge to US), lebanon (and why is it a puppet of syria?!! if we r going to consider it a puppet, shouldnt be vassal to iran?), israel, armenia and azerbaijan (which technically r stiil at war, but holding a ceasefire for years!) and so on...
tnx for the effort on other aspects btw, good job!
Please also remember that the mod and the game it is based on are about war so we try to focus on countries and periods where there was war.
Iran has not been to war since the 1980's so obviously it reduces its focus in the mod but it will not be forgotten we just need to cover other areas before we get to Iran.
Well the problem here is that our development team is very small and we also have jobs or school to worry about and devote time at. Due to this limitation, we can only have the progression that is expected from a smaller dev team. We will surely cover the diffucult situation in the Middle East soon but remeber that the game covers the timeline of 2000-2020, so it's much more than only the Middle East. However if you want to help us by creating the Order of Battle for Iran, we would gladly accept it.
i'd like to help u on that, just dunno what should i do to help u guys. i can gather info for those ME countries when im free and not at work. so let me know how can i help.
p.s. im educated in computer science, so i wouldnt have much problem with understanding any codings or so, just fyi not to waste ur time explaining things in depth if needed! hehe ;)
We need people who know how to mod Hearts of Iron 3, computer science is good but it doesn't help if you never modded this particular game before.
Try to look at other OOB's files that are already included in the mod and make one of Iran based on that structure, after you are done you can send it to us.
sure, ill look at them as soon as i have the free time, if u can suggest any reference to sites or forums with basic data on moding HOI3 would also help me assist u further in the process.
btw i see ur point on the war matter PlayerHOI, but we also should remember its also a sandbox so with the little option of escalation in some situations (like the nuclear threat of iran before the july 14th deal, or in russia-US or south china sea situations) player could make wars for him/herself and alter the course of history as is the general idea in HOI
Core functions and historical accuracy are mostly prioritzed for now but that does not mean that dynamic options/scenarios will be neglected. As for the reference for sites that could help you to understand HOI modding, you just have to try to copy the coding in the existing OOB files. Globalsecurity.org is a excellent source for info on nations armed forces.
Hi there I can help you with OOBs of Africa/the Middle-East just PM me
What version of Hearts of Iron 3 are you modding this on?
The last version was Their Finest Hour,
that version added some interesting elements
Not sure how much can be accessed, but strategic resources were an added element in HOI3 (TFH)
You could mod things like specific strategic oil regions (the wars of this era), rain forests (rare), reefs and fishing (getting rarer)?, hydroelectric power (boosts energy)?, universities, financial centers?, etc...
Also, will you guys cover the currency crises of this era? (European Union for example)
Hope Beta 6 comes out soon!
