also this is my first mod on Hearts of iron 4 and still learning.

ONLY Playable on English.

please report any bugs or problems you encounter, i did 2 1945 test games and found nothing relevant but there may be something.

-not compatible (not fully tested try at own risk) with mod that add new techs units etc or mayor conversions/overhauls like black ice and Millenium dawn.

- if you have problems with UI set 0.7 on the UI scaling settings and up your resolution.
