Historical Flavour Mod is a mod based on the well known HPM mod. HFM Offers opportunities for a flavour-rich alt-history while still retaining the historical core of the mod. New nations like the East India Company, Mittelafrika, the German Confederation and the Spanish Vice-royalties are included, and numerous events and decisions have been added/tweaked for many countries. New reforms have also been added, such as Centralization and Colonial Policy. It also compiles and expands upon several disparate submods of HPM (notably the France and East India Company minimods).

When you play as spain and you win the hispano-american war for cuba puerto rico and the philipines automaticly the united states get a event that gives them cores in your colonies and that is a problem because they can declare war against you for something that is not a real core of the US. For that reason spain needs an event to take cores in their colonies after the war.

Bug found? I had a war with cb "acquire all cores" as Greece against the ottomans, me and the russians added another state to the war. The russians (as war leader) got their state, I got nothing.
Later on, the russians and british went to war against the ottomans to free the balkans in around 1880. The romanians and russians added another state for themselves. No balkan country was freed and the romanians and russians got their extra state.
