Millennium Dawn is a Mod that attemps to take Hearts of Iron IV into the Year 2000 and until the year 2050. Play as Clinton, Putin or Blair! Be a reasonable leader or a genocidal maniac! Rewrite modern history as you wish!

This mod is currently not enjoyably playable. This is a testing upload for the sake of myself and a few others who were curious. Download at your own discretion!

Features are:

*Extended Timeline

Startdates: January 1st, 2000 and January 1st, 2016. The technical end date is 1/1/2050, however Event and Technology support will end short of that.

* Ideology

Ideology is split into 11 branches: Radical Islam, Fascism, Nationalism, Reactionary Democracy, Social Conservatism, Market Liberalism, Social Liberalism, Social Democracy, Progressive Democracy, Democratic Socialism and Communism.

This is in theory already done, but countries will need leaders, as well as possibly designated flags and names.

Also, the UI will be updated to show more than 4 of these factions.

* Technology

Yeah, complete revamping of technology will be up there. For now however, you have the vanilla tech tree with updated years, with 1936 to 1950 becoming 2000 to 2020. The UI is still old and will show the old year numbers, but the tooltips will accurately depict how much time is still to pass. All countries, for the sake of balance and AI observation, have the same starting technologies.

* OOBs

Eventually, armies will be accurate and so will military technology, but for now, no countries have armies and all have the same starting templates.

* Events

Yeah, of course there will be events! From the big ones like 9/11 or the Syrian Civil War to smaller ones like the dispute between Turkish president Erdogan and German comedians, things will be in there!

* National Focuses

As filling at least 20 years of general with focuses is harder than filling 15, only 4 of which are at peace, we will focus for now on one big generic focus tree. Then, eventually, major countries like Russia, the US, the UK, Germany, China, France and India will receive their own.

Hello, please tell me how to connect the "national focuses" made by me. Sorry for my english, I use an interpreter.

In case you didn't see it, I'll post it again for you

New idea: You could create national focuses where you can make use of "special" but very controversial weapons. (Remember "Secret Weapons"?)

EXAMPLES:
Nuclear Program/Testing *30% increased Nuclear Reactor construction speed, 30% increased atomic bomb construction speed, -20 relations with *insert countries here* +5% national unity, +5 or -5 stability*

Chemical Warfare *Increased soft attack for *insert units here* by 10-20, -20 relations with *insert countries here*, -5 stability*

Toxic Waste Utilisation: *Same as Chemical Warfare but much more controversial and somewhat deadlier, still cheaper*

Biological Virus Warfare: *Can lead to nearly entire populations getting wiped out, extremely controversial and can lead to the damage of relations between other nations*

These national focuses could branch into much worse versions the lower you go down its tree, bad for both you, and your enemies.
FOR EXAMPLE: Toxic Waste Utilisation can branch into Anthrax Weaponry with the following description:

"We must use the deadly effectiveness of Anthrax and fit it in our bombs and rockets" .

And then it branches to Total Toxin Mobilisation

"We must utilise this expendable and deadly weapon as much as we can! Sure, we may be risking millions of human lives and the health of this planet, but this is war! Casualties are unavoidable! Outfit our armour and infantry with toxic waste cannons!"

They can be used by any default nation but with certain conditions, and if you make any special controversial weapons national focuses for the major nations, then OK.
If you wish to add more bad/good side effects, go for it! All to make it more interesting and exciting.

Also, forgive me if there was an email address specifically for posting ideas, but I was quite excited about this one that I just wasn't patient enough to look for the email

Hey Devs
I think there's a lot of great quotes in this speech that would fit nicely in the loading screens: Facebook.com

And even if you wont ad them, the video is still worth watching for everyone :D

Is development finished or should we expect a new version?

I don't know if you SHOULD expect a new version, but you might as well.

I have no idea why you have such an edgy attitude.

Because the frequent and ongoing abuse I receive from ModDB users has been quite exhausting.

Turns out pirates are ungrateful - who would have guessed.

I appreciate your dedication, but you don't need to go gay for me. Your family would be thorougly disappointed if you got with a person like me.
