Hello and welcome to the Great Serbian War mod.
This is a alternative history mod called the Great Serbian War. I made this mod by myself and two friends who did mostly the pictures and testing. This is a mod that is set in the Alternative History of Serbia (What if Serbia lost WW1). I created this mod to be hard and challenging so don't expect a easy and overpowered mod. It has multiple paths and ton of new events. I have worked on this mod for about 3 months and i have made this mod from my heart. This mod has some historical accuracy but the most is fictional. This mod is NOT trying to be political and i DON'T have anything against anybody,this is just for fun. This mod focuses only on Serbia (while it has some change to some countries) and Serbia is the only country with a custom focus tree.I don't plan to make any updates to the mod or make it bigger,at least now if i get some support and maybe if somebody wants to help me then it could be bigger.

#What is new
This mod adds: -Two new ideologies: -Nacional Monarchy (Exclusive for Serbia) -Totalist Monarchy (Exclusive for Serbia) -New national focus for Serbia: (Witch is massive) -Nacional Monarchy path (similar to Neutral paths in other focuses) -Totalist Monarchy path (Greater Serbia/similar to Fascist paths in other focuses) -Dual Monarchy path (Serbian Empire/similar to Nacional and Totalist path) -Democratic path (Republic of Serbia) -Communist path (Socialist Republic of Serbia) -Industrial path -Military path (Air force,Army and Navy) -70 new custom focus tree icons -14 new songs (might be copyrighted!) -New national spirits -54 new leader portraits-And a ton more new stuff

#Alternative Story of Serbia

After the assassination of Franc Ferdinand on 28th of June 1914. Austria-Hungary declares war on Serbia on 28th of July. Serbia asks for Russian help but they refuse and leave Serbia to there own. Entente also doesn't want to help Serbia in any way. Austrians scared of a surprised Russian invasion they leave most of there army on the Russian border. Austrians try to take Belgrade but they fail and Serbia makes a counter-attack and they break the Austro-Hungarian lines and they take Srem and Banat. In the battle of Novi Sad in 1915. Austrians are defeated by the Serbs and Serbia continues to advance until Austrians stop them in 1916. while Bulgaria declares war on Serbia. Serbs somehow stop the Bulgarian advance into Serbia but they had to reduce there Austrian front to Srem.In 1917. Montenegro joins Serbia and together they push Bulgarians all the way to Sofia. Austrians take that opportunity to attack Serbians and in the battle of Novi Banovci Serbs emerge victorious. Greece joins the war on the Serbian side but they where defeated by Bulgarians in the battle of Serres.In 1918. Albania joins the war on the Austrian side and take Montenegro,Kosovo,and northern Epirus. Greece capitulates and Serbians fall back to Belgrade where they make there last stand. Austria,Bulgaria and Albania launch a full scale invasion. Serbia exhausted,out of manpower and equipment surrenders on 6th of February and sings the Treaty of Vienna on 15th of February. After that Serbia loses 75% of it's prewar territory.After that in 1920. Italy demands South Tyrol from Austria but Austrians refuse and Italy declares war on Austria. One year later Austria surrenders and in the Treaty of Rome Austria gives Italy south Tyrol,Dalmatia and Istria.In 1922. Hungarians start a revolution and Romania join on the Austrian side while Bulgaria joins the Hungarian side. Hungary wins the war and it becomes independent. Croatia and Czechoslovakia gain independence and Austria-Hungary is officially dissolved. And in Serbia a coup was staged,and now Serbia is in a massive political and industrial crisis. This is where you start,in 1936. in a effort to make Serbia great again!

Stvarno bi bilo lepo kad biste dodali jos jedan red u focus tree-u za Milutina Nedica kao vodju i preobrazaj u fasizam.Stavili ste scenario za svaku ideologiju sem za tu.Samo predlazem.

A couple of things (NOTE: I am using all DLC's with the latest patch):
- You should probably do a spell check for a couple of things: replacing "nacional" with "national" and putting a space after punctuation marks.
- Forming the Serbian Empire decision does give cores as intended, but the decision doesn't go away. It just refreshes and stays there indefinitely, no matter how many times I click on it. Not a huge dealbreaker, but something to consider.
- I am interested in hearing the reasoning behind two new parties exclusive for Serbia. While it is a nice idea, it creates a few issues: puppet countries which have either of those two ideologies end up in most cases having a blank flag and even a missing name; . There should either be a workaround for this or just leave them in the scope of Fascist and Neutral ideologies respectively, but just give a national spirit that will change ideology rules (things like justify war goal tension limit etc.).
- Focuses of other countries which deal with Yugoslavia need to be tweaked, because they can leave some countries stuck.
- You need to set default generic names for new generals. I literally got Adam Jones as a new general and he doesn't sound very Serbian to me.
- Naval tech tree and focuses are pretty much unusable in gameplay perspective. Serbia starts with no naval tech (understandable) and doesn't get a chance to even defend the Adriatic or sink a few ships, considering that by the time Serbia gets access to sea, it's going to be around 1940, and having one of the only 4 available research slots allocated to any naval tech is not justifiable. You could try to do a Kaiserreich thing where the focus gives you at least the second tier destroyers, submarines and cruisers with few complementary techs. Without that, a hope for a naval game cannot exist.
- An expansion to industrial part of the focus tree would be nice. For example: building up Bosnia, Southern Serbia or Macedonia specifically. Those focuses could be a part of another part of the Expansionist Industrial tree, where you develop retaken lands. I found myself mostly just bloating the starting two states, because the economic crisis is a spirit that players should put a priority on for removing in hopes of even trying to build something.
- Not really a gripe, but just a question: Why does Serbia have a tag SRB instead of vanilla SER? Not really a dealbreaker as well, but I guess that the peach color of vanilla Serbia isn't appealing to you as well.

But all in all, this is a very ambitious mod. Considering that this is the very first version of it, it's very well made. Lots of options, which adds to replay value. Fixing the things I mentioned above, as well as adding some adjustments to Balkan countries that would reflect the alternate history aspect of the mod, would probably even garner a lot of attention on Steam Workshop. Not every day you see a mod that isn't just about "Conquer the world with +20% manpower and +50% attack generals" as minor, insignificant nations that using a common sense could never manage to even conquer a single neighbor (looking at pretty much every Albania, Tannu Tuva and *insert country which exists now but didn't exist during WW2 but it's a mod because **** it, it's my country* focus tree mod). You can definitely fail as Serbia here, if you don't play your cards right.

I am looking forward to seeing more updates to this. Good luck to your team, if you continue developing this mod. Cheers!

Hello,thanks for commenting,i will explain all things that you asked or said.

Spell check is fixed and now most of the text(if i missed something) should be fixed in that perspective.

I didn't know about the decision bug,i will fix it ASAP when i get the time.

I created those two ideologies because my friend who inspired me to make the mod made those two ideologies so i wanted to suprise him with them,I know about the flag,leader and country name and i'm fixing that with the time i have.

I also fixed the German tree in the part of Yugoslavia and Italy,i don't know any more counties that have that problem.

I will add some new General names,but there will be even more Generals in the upcoming update,so i don't think that anyone would use generic Generals,but i will add names for them nonthelles.

I will fix the naval problem that you mentioned,it will give the player a researched destroyers,and i will add an Extra research slot in every political tree.

I was also thinking about adding new idustrial tree but with the time i have it would take a while,but sure i will try my best to do that.

The tag is SRB not SER because two reasons,when i made the custom country,i only knew how to create a custom country with the custom tag.And because in Serbia we call Serbia,Srbija and for example on out car tags we have here are SRB and to me it's better soothing that the tag is SRB than SER.

This is my first mod ever so i didn't expect for it to be that great but it came out nicely.
And yeah i created the mod to be hard not like super-overpowered mod that you can conquer the whole world.(Fun Fact:I coudn't test some events because i couldn't conquer the Balkans and the mod was too hard for me,so i had to ask my friend to test it for me.)
You probably didn't know but i'm making another mod that has the story of Great Serbian War,Great Serbian War is just an mod for Serbia,but the mod that i'm making right now is much greater in the Grand Scale of things and it's gonna be a total conversion world,like Kaiserreich,Fhurerreich,In the name of the Tsar ect.

Again thank you for the great comment an update is coming soon so stay tuned for that :)

Good to see that the fixes are rolling in nice and steady. Naturally, no one is pushing you to pump out fixes and updates ASAP. Most mod developers only make mods in their free time.

Depending on what expansions this mod can run, you might also want to do fixes for DoD countries as well (Romania has Divide Yugoslavia focus and Hungary I believe gets an event where they demand Vojvodina from Yugoslavia - which doesn't exist). Balkan Strategy for UK is also a bit useless, but that one is not important, since all it does is increase relations. French Little Entente focus should also be tweaked to ask Serbia to join or just remove that part of the tree altogether (the part where they invite Yugoslavia).

If you are adding new generals, then adding new names might not be necessary. Although it would be appreciated, especially when it comes to admirals. The new naval game encourages multiple, specialized admirals, so hiring generic ones in the naval game is pretty much mandatory. I am not aware of any distinguished Serbian admirals or fleet commanders of that time though.

Ah, I can see the reasoning behind the different tag. It's completely understandable. It just surprised me when I was doing some testing and tag switching when SER didn't work, but it's good to know now.

Harder mods are very much appreciated. Kaiserreich version of Serbia is also pretty hard and requires some luck in order to succeed during the Weltkrieg. I've lost two games with your mod and won just a single one. Most people would find this mod unfair due to its difficulty, but this is actually what separates good players from casuals.

I'm interested in that project of yours, it's good to play alternate history mods in this game.

Also, pardon my late response, final college year eats my time away so much that I can barely check my messages.

Yeah thanks, i try to fix as much things as possible.

I changed all DoD and vanilla things about Yugoslavia and things like that.

I added the names even with more generals just to make the mod more appeling and realistic. There are only 2 Serbian naval Admirals that i could find and those are Bogoljub Ilic and Dragutin Prica.

Thank you for being interested and there is an update that is gonna be released soon so stay tuned for that. It's gonna come in a few weeks :)

Again thank you for the comment.
