Hi everyone,

I would like to update your all on what's going on with the mod right now as well as future development.

Beta 6 has no doubt taken the mod many steps forward but the irony is that with each addition and pieace of content we add to the mod the more complex/heavy it gets and in many cases we have to cut down on content not to overload the game engine which just isn't built to handle so much data and content.

Despite of all our efforts to make the game more friendly in the performance department it seems we have reached the peak of how much performance we can squeeze out of the game when its running the mod. Due to these considerations as well as my personal wish to "move on" with life I have decided that the next beta (7) will be the last update to the mod.

The development of the mod began in 2012 and has gone thru many changes/additions and cycles of development teams, all of this has demanded sacrifices from me in my personal life as well as what I had envisioned to the mod vs what can actually be done within the limitations of the game it is based on.

While Beta 7 will no doubt wont be able to finish all aspects of the mod we do intend to make it as broad as possible and close as many gaps in the various aspects the mod has intorudced into the game. I also want to allow everyone to play all the bookmarks we have set for the mod so Beta 7 will allow you all to play both the Syrian and Ukranian civil wars but they will not be as in-depth as much as they would be if they were released in seperate updates.

----

As for the future of Modern Warafre - I am afraid I cannot promise much, modding has been a great fun and I have enjoyed working on this mod and bringing something really new into the Hoi3 community and allow players to play a mod which is very different than anything else intoroduced before.

However, developing total conversion mods for games such as these is a daunting task and a huge challange especially when a very small team (and especially one person only) is working on it. I am not sure I have what it takes to take on another challange like this for HOI4 and even if I do I will probably want to explore other era's than the modern timeline.

I don't want to promise anything since I have no idea what I am going to do and if I am going to do anything at all with regards to HOI4 modding or any modding at all in the future.

I want to thank anyone who has stayed on board and helped in any way with the mod... be it feedback, disscussions or anything else. I have met many amazing people while working on this project and it was great. Be sure that as long as it is up to me we will deliver the best update we can even if its the last one and perhaps one day we will meet again on the battlefield of Paradox games.

Once i've setteled on anything I will post an announcment regarding the features of Beta 7 and eventually a release date.

Thank you all, its been a pleasure.

PlayerHOI.

Hey! Could you post pic of simplified terrain map of Europe? On my PC half of the Europe have urban terrain type, especially Poland and Ukraine. I just want to know if it's broken installation.

Because in modern time no country starts a war with the stated goal of "we are going to conquer their ***". Not to mention its not as much fun to take huge countries with one go...

You can add the casus beli back from the vanilla file... look for a file called casusbeli types

Seems like a lot of people are bitching about performance, have you guys looked over your LUA files? The only time i get lag issues with my mod is when i **** something up in the LUA.

There are much more feature heavy & script heavy mods that don't have lag issues. If you guys are having issues i would recommend looking at TRP and Black Ice's LUA files. They're very well documented, especially TRP. That's what i reffer to whenever i have any issues

Hey,

Yes, the LUA files have been changed to a very small degree but I can't say they are 100% good since no one on the team has any LUA experience and know nothing about these files and how they work.

Black Ice's LUA files are irrelevant since the two mods are very different and this mods uses mostly the vanilla LUA files...

The main reasons for lag are the map and the LUA files and both need to be addressed but the map is the first priority right now.

Yea and no, black ice and trp's lua have more options in terms of ai and control and is very optimised.

I would still highly recommend if there's anyone on the team who knows even basic programming to take a look. It's very well documented, showing almost what every statement does and with some minor editing you can get it to work for any mod.

E.g the production & tech lua just tells the ai when and what to build/research, change the blackice units/tech to Modern Warfare's units/techs and what conditions to build them( if at war, if date is xxxx, default ratio of units and etc) and it'll work fine

Mod already is looking good with a lot of effort shown on the map, political system and the countries so it is easily seen that the developer(s) are very ambitious and devoted to this project.
