Hi everyone,

I am very sad to announce that my enthusiastic announcement regarding the next beta of MW mod was published too hastily, I was hoping that I can solve the severe lag problem of the mod by replacing the map but that has proven itself an illusion.

The conclusion that I came to is that the game will lag even with the new map, while the map is one of the symptoms of the lag it is not the cause. The real cause is rooted in the engine and in how it deals with the tasks presented to it, the game simply cannot handle all the new countries that are added into the game with each country have massive amounts of data for the game to handle.

This has brought me to the sad realization that MWM cannot continue on this platform (the HOI3 game) and will have to be reborn on a different game running a better engine, until that time comes you can enjoy the last version that was released and be sure I will stick around the Paradox modding community.

To kill off any speculation, the mod WILL NOT be developed for HOI4 since that game does not have the proper mechanics to provide real 2000's political/economic/proxy simulations.

I am deeply sorry for anyone waiting for news but it has taken a great time for me to try out various options and configurations until I came to this conclusion which I so badly wanted to avoid.

See you around, for anyone who wants to keep up with any of my future MAD projects I suggest following the Iron Workshop youtube channel to which a link is provided below.

Hey, why is the mod to be installed in such a weird way, why not just put it into mod folder like other mods?

Hello, love to hear about the updates actually comming!

but i was wondering, will you have both the "Massive" HoI 3 map avaible for download and the better performance one aswell?

I loved HoI for being just massive, and i'd love to have a long and harsh World war 3 in Russia or a complex Africa compared to what HoI 4 offered.

Othervise, love the mod.

Unfortunately no,

Since the map is such a core concept of the game which affects pretty much EVERYTHING (except for techs maybe) I would be required to create two versions of the mod in order to have two maps available.

Keeping this up is not worth the time or effort. So with Beta 7 you will only be playing on the new map which was downsized from 14,000 provinces to around 6000.

However areas which have strategic importance or were historically battle zones will have a proper amount of provinces to allow tactical and strategic planning and fighting (plenty of provinces to fight in Russia).

Right now my limit is to go as high as 10,000... Anything beyond that will probably cause the game to lag so the mod is open to additions in the future as far as the map is concerned.
