CWE brings Victoria 2 into the Cold War era and beyond. This is the ultimate Cold War mod with a slew of special features such as ideological blocs, dynamic international institutions and decolonisation chains to accurately simulate the Cold War and Post-Cold War world.
A complete version of the CWE mod. To install, follow the instructions below. Full changelog on the Github page. Do not forget to clear the map cache. You can view the partial changelog with the important features added/changed below. Updated as of 07/09/2019.
Copy CWE and CWE.mod from the CWE.zip file to the mod directory of your Victoria 2 Program File.
CWE requires Victoria 2 Heart of Darkness Version 3.04 which includes the beta patch. Please delete your map cache prior to starting a new version of the mod for the first time.
CWE music files:
I separated the music file from the main mod file. This was because the zip file size was reaching the Moddb size limit. You can get the music file to attach to your main mod file from here.
While the Moddb file will give you big changes between versions, you may still feel that you wish to follow the mod more closely so I have made a Github Repository with the mod where you can download the most up to date Dev version of the mod. However as it may be updated frequently, you may have to download the lastest Github version multiple times for small commits like bug fixes etc but what you will get will be the most updated development version of CWE.
Version 1.10 Partial Changelog:
Some people have asked whether not being able to justify war is a bug. It is not. The ability to justify war is tied to ruling party war policy, government type, world tension levels and being in a war. So unless you fulfill at least one of those conditions then war justification will be possible.
Social Corruption can be reduced by increasing literacy (above 25%) while Government Corruption can be reduced by increasing admin spending (above 70%).
Development levels are determined by the literacy rates of specific provinces (above 25%) and whether the province has a large enough population. Provinces that have less than 30,000 pops will always be extremely underdeveloped. Increase your literacy to increase your developmental levels.
