The Historical Plausibility Project is a mod for Hearts of Iron 3 and its expansions with the goal of helping the game reach its full potential as a half-historical / half-sandbox game. The mod features a vastly improved AI, historical OOBs for every nation, complex internal politics, a reworked leadership system, the Soviet invasion of Poland, HOI2-style doctrines, capital ship modernizations, over 6,000 unique unit pictures, and much more. The HPP is the result of the efforts of the HPP team's five members of Slan, TheBromgrev, TZoli, SSmith, and Nephandus from the ParadoxPlaza forum, and its main forum is its official ParadoxPlaza forum, which Paradox requires proof of game ownership to enter. The HPP's forum contains the mod's FAQ, Submod downloads, country guides, and small hotfixes. In addition, part of the mod's previous work to the East Asia part of the map is now in the Their Finest Hour base game for everyone to enjoy.
This is the graphics pack for version 2.0 of the mod. You should not download this if you plan on playing the HOI3 or FtM version of the HPP. The HOI3 version of the HPP does not have a graphics pack, and the FtM version has its own graphics add-on. This download includes the mod's extra unit model, leader, minister, event, and technology pictures as well as the technology interface. You can play without the graphics pack, but the mod will look much nicer with it. Install Instructions:
* Extract the archive. You should end up with two folders.
* The folder named gfx goes into your ../hoi3 folder. This folder doesn't overwrite any files, but only adds new files that the base game won't use. Only pictures that can't be added to the game's mod folder are here. If for any reason you don't feel comfortable adding files to your base install, then you can safely skip out on this folder, but some pictures will be missing from the mod.
* The other folder should be named "mod". Also place this folder in your ../hoi3 folder and overwrite when prompted. The bulk of the pictures are in this folder.
