¡Hello there! This is really a great mod, I've tried others like Kaiserreich or Modern Day, and in general terms this is the best so far! Every aspect from the vanilla game feels deeply improved :D
But there are a few little details which I would improve:

I've been playing as Austria-Hungria, and turned to Osterreich. Germany and I have the same war effort since the start of the war, we streamrolled over Russia and slowly destroyed the balkan threats (+Rumania). Then the revolution happend and the Brest Litovsk popped up.

Even with similar war efforts, Germany was greatly benefited in proportion through the deal (It would be cool an option to pursue war, even I prefeer to close the front in order to push West), but I managed to conquer the newly created Ukrania in a few weeks after the treaty. Maybe adding a condition on the event in which if war effort is similar between GER-AUH, the later can annex/puppet Ukrania+Crimea? As in order to win the war AUH needs those coastal zones to build up the navy (In my actual gameplay Entente has about 400-500 ships while Centrals have 100-150).

Also URSS is actually helping the Central Powers by sending us Divisions, maybe some events/focus to strenght ties with the URSS or even rejoining war with Centrals? Given the fact that Commies wanted peace but Tsarists wanted to keep fighting, with support from the Entente, and the Entente's involvement in the revolution supporting the White's army wouldn't it be the Centrals (Eveny by having been enemies over the las 50 years) the closest powers to the newly created URSS? (Also Italy has great commie popularity, so relations would be even closer). Like events/focus helping to rebuild URSS and sending military advice and sharing designs to prepare them for war, also "lending" some IC to help them grow?

Also when France was taken down Germany didn't do a dime. Neither Scheffield plan worked or Maginot could be broken, so I performed several naval invasions through the Blue coast, and created ports over the conquered zones in order to send there complete armies (As main French ports were heavily defended). Also I declared war over Switzerland, which forced France to expand it's frontline. This could be sintetized as an alternate national focus maybe, in which if War keeps going on past 1920 it can be performed.

The white peace treaty offered when France surrendered wasn't very profitable (We controlled 75% of France), so it could be great an option to keep fighting the great war while doing a separate peace with France

Also Germany performs some weird military manouvers (Great troop transports over enemy controlled waters...), but I supouse its due to the vanilla mechanics D: And some times GER just takes control of some of my conquered territories (Conquered from my fronts, and GER never put a foot over there), is there some way to fix it? Happens also with core territories when reconquered (In a failed playthorugh I did Germany controlled Istra, Dalmatia and Zara for most of the war...)
And given the historial situation/relation between Germany and Austria, when AUH goes the fascist way it would be great some events/focus to expand the ideology through central powers/neighbours, which should conflict with URSS, generating a lot of tension between them and leading to breaking the brest litovsk treaty and givin URSS the option to keep relations cold or go to war against Centrals

Hey, Wolferos, are y'all going to adjust the skill stats for the generals in a future update? Another question, working with the A.I. is the most difficult part in modding? Cuz the A.I. in the mod seems a little sloppy with a lot of key points. Nice mod although, I love playing it. Waiting the next update!

A great mod and I'd give it a 10 if it was finished. It's still technically is a 10, but some miner issues need to be worked around.
