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.

When I install it it just installs as a file so is there a certain place in Hearts of Iron I should put the file? I tried Their Finest Hour and the Base games mod folder but neither is working.

You need to put in normal folder! example: archive programs and look to a folder called hearts of iron 3, or if you have steam look in steam folder! put the mod in hoi 3 no in tfh the setup.exe automatic install all for you! just choose for they the exatly folder!

You should point the installer to your root HOI3 folder (where the exe files are)

If you are having a difficulty with running the mod please open a thread on the forums so that we may look at it accordingly.

Hey, first of all thanks for this awesome mod. I discovered it few days ago, and it is really good and it has potential in future to become best mod for HoI3 (maybe it is already but BlackICE is great as well). I have only one question, apparently it's pretty laggy for me, it's not unplayable but it's laggy, I have pretty good machine so I don't think that it's problem but I can post my configuration. How do I fix this?

That's a difficult question to answer. The mod adds A LOT of content into a game that isn't really meant to handle that much content.

The added countries, provinces and armies are the main causes for the lag as well as the inability of the AI to handle new additions to the game...

If your PC can handle the vanilla game fine as well as any other modern title I am afraid there isn't much to do... Modern Warfare is a showcase more than an actual playable option and perhaps in the future all of this content can go into a game that will be able to handle all of these things.

Edit: the main culprit is the game engine which isn't optimized and doesn't use the full potential of modern PC's (for example all cores of your CPU) and the mod can't really change that...

Well thanks for answer, that's understandable I guess, but anyway I really like mod, so I'm just going to continue playing it, it's not that unplayable. Thank you again. :) P.S Just one more question, does stuff like stacking penalty for aircraft (10% for each) and positioning penalty for ships works like in vanilla? Thanks..

AFAIK We haven't changed anything with the stacking penalties :)

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.
