The Victoria 2 Historical Project Mod is an attempt to improve the game Victoria 2: A Heart of Darkness without changing the base game experience too much. Built using parts of the mods NNM and PDM as a base, the main aim is to improve the historicity of the game, including countries, map and pops and to add more historical flavor to the game, while taking into account the plausible historical outcomes and the mod performance. The first release includes a vastly improved country composition and a complete rework of the global slave population. Most countries now have slavery and slaves and the historical number of slaves, as well as their pop composition and religion, was used when available. Future releases plans are to include a serf pop type and reforms to represent it, other meaningful reforms for the time era, dynamic soundtrack for countries/governments/regions and a 1816 (or 1815) start date.

Description

Not much of a hotfix as much as a minor patch. Changes state borders and fixes minor things. A lot of the work was done by @thiagodesacosta and especially @Libeccio-DD so kudos them. Thanks to @nappys-legacy script lot of the duplicate localization was removed - not a big difference for the player, but it helps to keep the mod tidy. You should check out his Napoleon's Legacy mod for the finest alt-history mod out there. The one big bug I managed to squash and that existed from vanilla is the one that made slave countries randomly lose slave states upon release, so that's a big thing. Next release will likely take much longer. Checksum for the Steam version is: PJXW. Full changelog below!

Heyo, while manchu expulsion seems to be good for the game, I wanted to say that in reality the land was almost uninhabited and was later colonized by Chinese, Japanese, Koreans and Russians/Ukranians at the same time. So apparently by 1917 only half of the population was (at least Vladivostok with surrounding areas) was non-European... Just wanted to point out, idk why tho since the game mechanics don't allow that kind of accuracy

Hey could u pls take a look at ICEN PUIR(https://github.com/icendoan/PUIR)
it's a mod that has added a "request grant decision" that allows victoria multiplayer players to pay one another. I think this would be really useful for multiplayer with this mod, as in my opinion this mod (HPM) is far superior and would only be made better with a similar feature (maybe without the prestige loss). This would be useful to pay other great powers to join your war, or influence another country, or release a vassal, etc.Thx!! OFC don't wanna overburden just thought it might be a cool addition to consider.

Have you considered making an observer mode (akin to other, more recent PDX games) for this mod? There isn't a way to have a truly hands-off game that doesn't have any effect on the world and I know many would be interested in this. Great work though! I have always enjoyed this mod.

Donwload the mod, unzip using whatever you have (7-zip, Winrar, etc), open the folder it extracted. Click on the mod file and the folder (both should be called HPM) and cut or copy the files. Then head to the mod directory and paste the files.

As some above guys said, some uncivilized countries as well as Korea do not enact any westernization reforms on unknown situations. On my opinion, restrictions for ai on military reforms are main cause. As 'ai = no' in 'common/issues.txt' file is changed to 'ai =yes', those problems are resolved

Haiti paying debt to France? I can say that HPM is getting more and more accurate each version. But please fix this version.
