Just noticed that both the old /gsg/ thread and the hoi 4 threads were full so here's a new thread.

Reposting from the Hoi 4 thread:

I found a supposed leak detailing the L-NPP paths, despite the lib bias of the devs Gus still seems pretty based. Plus it also has the 1976 and 1980 L-NPP candidates.

>At this stage, mass prosecution of the upper class will begin, now that the courts are sufficiently saturated with L-NPP appointees. Hall’s FBI director will have assembled lists and evidence on the illicit gains of the American wealthy, and, starting all at once, mass arrests will be carried out of the most unsavory individuals. This is a crisis as well, as this upheaval causes capital flight from the United States,which Hall can react to in a variety of ways - including shooting down private planes.


Yeah I'm thinking he's based

<The 1976 Election - Bill Epton/Abbie Hoffman

<Cabinet:
<Head of Government - ​Abbie Hoffman
<Foreign Minister - ​Noam Chomsky
<Economy Minister - ​Fred Hampton
<Security Minister -​ Philip Agee

Noam Chomsky and Fred Hampton being in the same cabinet is very funny to me

Tbh I feel like the devs are gonna remove the DSR path, I'm pretty sure they already said the DSR won't be Khmer Rouge for the Nazis anymore. Feel like they may incorporate the DSR into Bormann's and/or Speer's paths based on already exisiting content and toosers.

>Bormann

The RAF kills one of Bormann's minister near the end of his path, the RAF could probably come into power either after Borman dies or if the Nazi's lose the 2WRW badly

>Speer

In the Speer tooser ( https://preview.redd.it/bu1yh8ln5ii61.png?width=3192&format=png&auto=webp&s=1073d9c689e28de9e2866c3dd20ad3ef1d73e22d ) for Europa's Narben the Communist resistence seems to be given more prominence so its possible that the DSR could be one of the paths of Go4 germany

Krasnacht seems interesting but I hate how the devs are constantly reworking the lore, feels like it'll never come out at this rate and it'll just be a tooser mod.
Their most recent rework is now instead of "fixing" the KR lore ,such as not having the retarded Balkans war happen or removing other parts of KR's jankey lore, they're going to stick closer to the KR lore. Sorta like the Kalterkrieg mod also being developed.

I do like their socialist ideologies though, provides more nuance especially with subideologies.

The based KR cold war mod is l'Ordre Nouveau ( https://www.reddit.com/r/leOrdreNouveau/ ) which is a Russian developed mod. The cold war is between National Syndicalist Third international vs Russia which is in a coalition between Right-SR Savinkov and the Bolsheviks lead by Bukharin. America also becomes a bunch of warlords, Japan also controls most of East Asia.

Check out their dev diaries, they're really high quality https://www.reddit.com/r/leOrdreNouveau/comments/lnko7e/developers_diary_4_showa_no_rokkusuta/

Krasnacht is basically on life support right now. Most of the original people went away because Bukharina decided to simp for the original Kaiserreich retcons instead of doing their own thing.

Yeah apparently there was like a schism in the Krasnacht team with those dissatisfied with Fenia's leadership because they thought the team wasn't productive enough but also because of the rework, with the dev team having a leadership vote. The faction dissatisfied with Fenia lost and left the mod team.
kek Sheeve, the guy who started the mod, got cucked out of his own mod and left

The rework is dumb and apparently the devs didn't even do that much work anyways, so maybe the faction complaining about productivity did have a point…

Is it wrong that I still unironically think that Kaya is one of the most based paths in TNO, and perhaps in all HOI4 multiverse as well? Like, sure, he is a fascist ideologue culturally and GAW will basically be a loose loose situation no mater what for him, but hell, establishing real existing barrack communism and destroying commodity production?

If I remember correctly the TNO team are going to do an eventual rework of Japan and East Asia in The Setting Sun since Japan right now is in a horrendously unifinished state.
They had a Japan team lead who they had to kick out because apparently they were a Imperial Japan apologist, and then the Japan team lead they had after kept bullshitting about the progress. Making the rest of the devs think Japan was more develeoped than it actually was which has resulted in Japan being this unifished mess.

Not sure if Kaya's path as we know it will survive the rework considering how much Italy is being changed in its rework.

I don't think Doriot has his irl shift to the right in the l'ON timeline, anyways even if hes a bit cringe I still find his path interesting and will give it a play since it seems fun having France go through a Great Proletarian Cultural Revolution

However Nizan is probably the leader I agree with the most. If France goes down Nizan's path, and Russia goes down a Bolshevik path I wonder if there's a chance for detente. Probably not since Maximist UoB is l'ON's version of Burgundy in which the UoB foreign policy is to use spies to fuck relations between other countries.
Talking about Nizan I just realised the one of his foci is Donovan from Berserk lmao the l'ON devs really make some of the best focus icons out of any HoI 4 mod

Kaya / Spartan Federation from SMAC stan here, it depends on the barrack communism. Polpotism is basically just insanity, however arranging society into a startocratic state where the military government provides direct provision (aka abolishes commodity production) to all of its citizens, that is united together by a single espirit-de-corps vision of collective future? Yes, that is, in my opinion, a very good arrangement. Perhaps not as good as the Soviet version of socialism and definitely not the more utopic (and hopefully one day successful) communism that abolishes not only commodity production, but also work, but this kind of barrack communism is still VERY good civilizational outcome, at least when compared to the current global capitalist system.

Could anyone help me out with manually installing TNO to my cracked HOI4 version? I think I am getting fucked by a bad descriptor file. If I use the mod tools and don't replace the default created descriptor file, the mod crashes while loading up the game. If I replace the 2 descriptor files, it doesn't seem to recognize the mod and just launches default HOI4. Also the cracked dowser launcher always fails to launch the game, so I have to do it manually through .exe, maybe that has something to do with it. So if anyone can be so kind, could you paste here the text data from the 2 descriptor files you are using?

Just finished my first run as Suslov. Feeling mixed. I think over all he is probably the most based unifier, at least from what I've heard of the others. Its not wacky at all, but the things he does - clamping down on revisionists, controlling the bureaucrats, beating in party discipline - all really good. Also if I am not mistaken there was a hint that he will be pursuing OGAS, which, if true, instantly makes him the best. And all of this with minimal bloodshed. Though there was a feel that he was just a bit too technocratic with how he doesn't really care about soviet power more than OTL soviets. Hence I wonder how well would libsoc Sablin (or just Sablin when he gets updated) compare. But what I was really bummed out about is the drop in quality for content after Komi stage. I guess West Russia + regional focus tree were lowkie good also, but not as good at the start. They really could have added more flavour for characters, and especially Suslov himself, as now all we get are a couple "bureaucrats am I rite?" events, a few events about the economics minister and events describing the focuses, but there never seemed to be any dynamic or anything. And then the super regional stage is basically barren. I guess the reunification content wasn't that fleshed out yet.

Anyway, I also got United Arab Republic and commie Iran to form in my game so that is kinda based. Also gamer Borman long-knifing all dissidents only to spark more unrest in Germany, and LBJ going all the way to end racism and creating a welfare state… only to be replaced in 72 by neocon Kirkpatrick, which is honestly both really realistic, and in my opinion would create a really interesting timeline here for second decade, where Germany and Japan burn to the ground (first because of 2nd WRW, and second because of GAW), with US going on an interventionist rampage and becoming a CIA police state that is basically a weaker version of its OTL self and slowly reorientating itself towards conflict with the resurgent Soviets (who I chose to go anti-imperialist) in what becomes a more evenly mached and more interesting version of OTL cold war.

Finished a Big Chungus run after Suslov. Honestly I am disapointed. I was expecting a close-to-but-not-tragically heroic story where every choice in keeping the chungus score high and unwholesome score low would be a nail-bitter that could really backfire, or is really risky not to implement, or whatever. Instead I got a bunch of frat boys (and girls) getting shitfaced after every unification stage with a grumpy Buyrat and a grumpier Luxembourgist economist trying to get you to pass reasonable reforms that hit your chungus score. Love to get yelled at when I implement a centealized school system. But all of that is writting that gets changed regardless, so fuck it. My bigger problems is with his policies. Most of them are good, but there are two stinkers.
1) His economic policy. I am specifically talking about the chungus path. The more centralized one is ok I guess. Mainly, it stinks to me of Titoism and Wolfism (or more specifically Vaushism), where the idea of getting worker coops is put above the actual people of the country, and a window is opened for a free market to exist. Suslov was just slightly cringe for not letting unions get more power, however some amount of Soviet power without a "free producers" market is more favourable in my view than a coop economy a la Sablin.
2) Democratization. An even bigger bungle, and further proof that Sablin was just a liberal circlejerk dream. Representative democracy is reactionary, and a one way ticket towards an eventual oligarchy. Once again, Suslovs OTLish USSR structure isn't that amazing, but it is better than Sablins liberalism.
3) No OGAS. Literally fuck off unless you have OGAS. Suslov has implied plans for it (and an OTL history of support for it), Sablin "might" do it some time later. Sorry honey, but that isn't good enough.

Also in general I found Sablin path to be more boring gameplay wise than Suslov. Suslov is sparse as well, but he has a one banger of a start. Sablin just has a short war against Yagoda and thats it. Minimal managment problems, no real drama with the party wings, maybe just a bit of flavour in the foci for taking out Men. Only highlights were the trial scenes (especially Mikhail).

Final verdict:
Gameplay - slightly worse than Suslov
Basedness - somewhat worde than Suslov
Story - worse than Suslov

I honestly didn't mind the Sablin route, it's a bit of a lib circlejerk, yes, but then I'm something of a lib myself, so I enjoyed that well enough. I agree that the choice between 'blessed and cursed' should be a bit more difficult but on the other hand, any amount of mechanical disadvantage doesn't really matter if you're a sufficiently good player. Even if all the 'blessed' options gave you no bonuses you could still eventually win. So I don't know.

Agreed about it not mattering much gameplay wise, but it can matter naratively. For instance, event about some reactionaries murdering a bunch of Sablinites and getting away with it if you didn't reintegrate the NKVD, or maybe fucking up your education level growth if you go with the regional option. Or just "a day in a life" event that describes how the big chungus free producers union fucks over the consumers or bungles a state infrastructure project via underdelivering the quota for resourcess.

How he magically is always present in all events like that small protest in Novosibirsk from a worker council, even though at that time he should be in Ulan-Ude doing state work like any real leader. Or how about the meme of him running his entire administration from a frathouse party member opera even after beating Yagoda all the way to unification. Now, if there were events detailing how he actually "grows up" in order to fill the boots of being an actual leader, then that would be good writting, but now its just kind of silly.

I'll give it a shot some time, but will most likely go Cornman path. From what I've heard Lazar seems to be a bit too autistically authoritarian. Purging Bukharinism is based, but at the end of the day Suslov basically achieves the same result, as his USSR very much is the OTL stalinist (well, more like post-Stalin hardliner) one, just not in name. The other two I might try are Bukharina and Zhukov. I think the later might just be a shittier version of all the others, as at the end of the day he is a military man without a civilian government, but maybe I'm wrong.

Anyway, yesterday I did an IRA Ireland run. Even whit Twomey couping the IRA left, it is still pretty fucking based. It's really cool how they describe the revolution happening and the old government collapsing. Not to mension how it was cool to see ICG plot blow over and seeing the Garta totally outplayed. Will be cool to see future content added in for him later, hope there will be sort of left-IRA take over path that pushes Twomey back to the sideline, but even if not, his own plan of "Making Ireland into the IRA and vice versa" is still kinda based, even if he doesn't call himself a proper socialist or marxist. Also liked the little touch of Molotovs being renamed to Zhdanovs.

>Why does Hall make redditors seethe so much?
Because he is bad ok? Because mod devs said so he is bad you dig, dog???
But in reality it is because TNO very much is a radlib-dominant mod, perhaps more left than that when you consider the "outsider" communities that love it, like us, but for the average TNO player the idea of an openly anti-LGBTQ is the ultimate trigger that for them acts as a recognisable "red-brown" fascist dogwhistle. Like hell, try to cancel Zhukov (or is it Suslov, don't recal now) for not having an LGBTQ social law change in his focus tree.
Secondly, a large contingent of them are burger liberal chauvanists who sirclejerk around "le bastion of liberty" shit, so to them, even if Hall was wholesome 100, the very fact that he can only be elected if US shits the bed is a step too far.

As for getting him, I am pretty sure its alright if you know what to do. The one hard step is getting the SAW to go your way. Basically your aim is to win SAW with full mandates during first to years of RFK, which implies: a) spending a long time holding out and trying to keep SA from loosing, but never turning the tide the first year or so, and then being able to execute a full victory fast enough before the midterms. The main goal here is to get the mandates to explode at just the time Bennet is starting his neoliberal shit. For short, here is what you do in a Hall run:
Loose Guyana
Don't do foci as Nixon to stack PP
Do all the PP costing SAW decisions that increase discontent with the war, preferably maxing it out with Carmack
Start pushing back the Shlid, aiming for late 71 early 72 victory
Only do the radical shit as RFK while pissing off unions
Don't repeal the CRA as Strom
Be corrupt and bungle the union busting as Goldwater
Get Hall

This is the standart path. I also heard you can somehow do it with MCS, but I would imagine that doesn't work well with the Mandate collapse strat.

I think Chase Smiths route for getting a funni ending has something to do with her mechanics.
She's basically the NPP's version of Bennet and needs to keep a bunch of factions happy and the party united (which much like Bennet is broken as fuck she's the only prez asides from Bennet who can achieve one-party state tier Midterm and presidential victories)
iirc her failstate happens if either the NPP-C or NPP-FR relations meter hits zero in which case Harrington / Wallace and Thurmond basically just take their ball and go home. and depending on which one she alienated she basically has to make Hall (if Harrington walked out) or Yockey (If Strom/Wallace walked) the face of their respective branch of the party to win back some support.
This then leads (yet again iirc) to Chase not running again in 72 and either Hall or Yockey is simply the default primary candidate in-place of the usual 72 prez for their branch of the party unreliant on NPP-Y/L popularity.

>We are the army of the Chinese people and in all things we take the will of the Chinese people as our will. The policies of our army represent the urgent demands of the Chinese people and chief among them are the following:
>(1) Unite workers, peasants, soldiers, intellectuals and businessmen, all oppressed classes, all people's organizations, democratic parties, minority nationalities, overseas Chinese and other patriots; form a national united front; overthrow the dictatorial Chiang Kai-shek government; and establish a democratic coalition government.
https://www.marxists.org/reference/archive/mao/selected-works/volume-4/mswv4_32.htm
Later elaborating have this:
>"Businessmen" means all the national bourgeois who are persecuted and fettered, that is, the middle and petty bourgeois.
>"Other patriots" refers primarily to the enlightened gentry.
<“enlightened kulaks”
>The national bourgeoisie is a class which is politically very weak and vacillating. But the majority of its members may either join the people's democratic revolution or take a neutral stand, because they too are persecuted and fettered by imperialism, feudalism and bureaucrat-capitalism.
I love how he openly opposes to “bureaucratic capitalism” and not capitalism itself. Dude was completely fine with kulaks. At least Bukharin only said that capitalist is only a means to an end that should be eliminated when the time comes. Even leftnats like Castro didn’t stoop this low.
How do you think that almost half the party were following Deng and Zhou while a quarter were fascists that followed the Gang of Four when the cultural revolution came around?

But Mao literally did get rid of them during the cultural revolution though?
What needs to be remembered is the sheer SCALE of China and the fact that large parts of the mainland were still outside of the CPC's control until the early 60s.
Xinjiang and Tibet had multiple uprisings and small guerrilla groups pledging allegiance to the ROC were continuing to attack in Yunnan supported by the west and burma.
The Cultural revolution basically solved this question by ending the question of dual authority in China. The last of the rural landowners, ex-KMT General-Governors who had kept their position by switching sides to the red army and other systems from before the establishment of the PRC were abolished and the entire country was bought under one standardised meritocratic and top-down method of governance.

The cultural revolution was called off before any real and permanent revolutionary changes could be made. The bourgeois nationalist elements at the top of the CPC protected their friends and their influence and the reactionary red guard factions successfully fought off the rebel guard factions and then the whole thing was shuttered when the actual consequences of a real cultural revolution being unleashed made the CPC bourgeois democratic revolutionaries too nervous. The gang of four were locked up and the workers told to go back to their factories and stop agitating. Mao cucked out to his fellow petit bourgeois nationalist friends and set the stage for Deng to carry out China's very own thermidorian reaction, the consequences of which we're living with today.

I do wonder how much of this is the case because the devs were libs and thought people would instantly be hostile to Birch for being a hardliner, and how much of it is just underdeveloped. Because damn, Birch doesn't even get a real introduction, just different liberals im the SLP starting shit behind his back "cuz he be Leninist". Hope they rework it. Maybe add a Birch couo path that happens concurently with Harington so it wouldn't just look like the former is just a paranoid idiot, and would actually give character to Birch. And also would be cool if they added a "no split" path as well, where Harington isn't a birch, doesn't go after Birch and just doesn't rock the boat and tries to accomodate both sides.

Ok wait so what functionally is the difference between Artuad and the Fiume leaders 'Accelerationism' and irl Fascism?
In two of Artuads three routes (The one where Artuad Stands alone, And the one where he allies with Saint-Loup) He more or less embodies the usual characteristics of French Fascism / National-Syndicalism (Though in Saint-Loups path he adds being a Teddite on top of that)
And as for Italy Keller and Shimoi are blatantly just different flavours of actually existing Italian fascism (Marinetti also sorta counts but he's right up there with Escadron-Artuad as not just a fascist but straight up 'supervillain' tier)

But what makes this more confusing is that Italo Balbo and the Blackshirts became leader of Italy in my game which means the Blackshirts and assumedly the PNF still literally exist in this timeline.

Let the Japanese land a bunch of troops in naval invasions, encircle and exterminate them, rinse and repeat until they're all dead. Don't try to seriously push into Manchuria until their forces are super weakened, just hold your ground at the starting borders (and advance opportunistically tile by tile if you see a weak point).

Ok, so here are some import points:

-Train your troops until they are level 3.

-Make 7/2's (they're not meta anymore blablablablablabla, i know but you're poor as fuck, so this will have to make do), and slowly update your previous trash infantry and cavalry divisions to them.

-Hire military advisors, specifically the army logistics expert. The difference when having him on is night and day, and makes pushing into Mengkukuo much, much easier. Other recommendable advisors include:
<Infantry expert.
<Army Regrouping expert.
<Entrenchment expert, if you plan on grinding them down for a bit (which is usually what i do until i can update my divisions to 7/2), though it isn't obligatory to hire him.

Chief of army is either the Army Morale expert or the Army Defense expert, i'll leave that up to you.

It is also recommendable that, if possible, you decrypt Japan's cipher, as well as launch the 100 regiments offensive. It's really helpful when pushing and seeing their shit fall apart.

————————————-

When joining the war, you can take one of two approaches:

1. You join it after setting up your defenses in a fallback line on your border with Mengkukuo and gaining entrenchment bonus, this ensures the nationalists don't fucking die, as some enemy divisions will stay there and won't maraud the KMT as much as they normally do. Time will be mostly spent defending (doing some pushes here and there whenever the AI does its thing and forgets to man up/barely mans up some tile), but also focusing on upgrading your division templates and building stockpiles. When you feel the time is right (your divisions are strong enough/theirs are weak), you strike and seek to overrun Mengjiang. At this point, they will start to fall apart, and killing Manchukuo shouldn't be a problem (just watch for the AI trying to encircle you, as at this moment you'll probably be snaking quite a lot).

2. Do NOT join the war immediately, you want the nationalists to do a lot of the initial heavy lifting (but don't let them die either). Only do so when you're fully ready (i.e. done everything i said so far), at which point the Japanese should be starting to stretch their lines, and you can overrun Mengjiang swiftly depending on the circumstances (the 7/2's will trash what the fascists put there), and even cut their forces in half if you manage to get to Qingdao, though no guarantees.

If you push the Japanese army out of the continent, you should get an event where Japan offers you a white peace, and you prepare to turn on Chiang Kai-Shek. However, i never got it since the DLC is bugged as fuck, in which case, simply build subs (preferably by getting some other country's license production/lend-lease), naval bombers, raze the IJN to the bottom of the ocean, and invade Japan. Its army will be very pathetic given the multiple naval invasions you repelled during your preparation (tip: the AI loves trying to invade the Korean peninsula, so you can either repel it each time, or you let them get a bit of a foothold, and destroy whatever troops they mindlessly shuffle in it).

————————————-

General notes:

Also, try to encircle their troops whenever an opportunity appears. It takes a medium amount of time to see their army bleeding, but it is well worth the effort.

Make plans to create planing bonuses, these can be handy buffs in battles.

If the war with Japan takes too long (i'm talking 1946 level long), it is possible that the KMT will start doing the One China Policy focus, which will makes them immediately attack you, even if in the middle of the war. So keep an eye out for that.

The guide i used to properly learn how to play is the embed video.

Ah okay, that was a big problem for me. I manage to push the Japanese out of Korea and at first I thought, okay, that's it, but somehow they keep coming up with the manpower and shit to keep launching invasion after invasion. This happened to me right after I started a communist uprising and went to war with the KMT, only for Japan to drop an invasion in both South Korea and Northern China. Either one of which would have been manageable, if my imports from Uncle Joe didn't suddenly go through the floor.

>2. Do NOT join the war immediately, you want the nationalists to do a lot of the initial heavy lifting (but don't let them die either).


So I shouldn't follow the video's advice and go the Government of National Defense route or whatever?

Thank you. I actually saw that video before and it's what got me started playing China, but I had no way of knowing if the information in it was still accurate, or if there might be better ways to go about it, though borrowing his strategies have gotten me through pretty well so far.

No, you absolutely should. What you should not do is joining the war immediately (if you take the second approach i laid out), let the nationalists do the initial fighting and build up your own strength. After you deem yourself ready, join the war with them.

Ornaje is basically the only country that both has access to natural resourcess, has a government that allows building factories and enough room to grow while not being OP, and having some more interesting challanges like taking down South Africa and Portugal. Also creating a Red-Africa superstate is pure kino towards the late game.

>The USA was plunged into instability by Wilson’s failure and largely collapsed in 1928, while in France the military under Foch seized power. In Italy, Gabriele d’Annunzio overthrew the monarchy, with the royalists fleeing to Sardinia. The chaotic republic in Germany gave way to right-wing authoritarians and revolutionary socialists who carved out their own fiefdoms amidst the chaos, while the Prussian junkers established an aristocratic republic in what land they could hold on to.

>With no side able to gain a clear upper hand in the Russian civil war, fighting died down and regional forces entered into a stalemate. The United Kingdom, having lost it's good relations with France and bankrupted by the collapse of America, fell into decline, with territorial losses in Ireland, India and South Africa over the 1920s.

CK2/3 is pure unhinged ID the game, but more from the Freudian sexual perspective, though I'd argue the combat is quite nice once it clicks, and its fun to do one-life swap to random ruler when you die games.

EU4 is the quintesential map painter sim, however I can't vouch for newer versions as I dropped it a few years back, and the new DLCs migh have fucked some shit up, as I recall the game at some point getting worse with each addition of new dumb mechanics. For one I highly recommend disabling Cossacks, since it fucks up the original games diplo system into a more annoying one.

Isn't this too historically inaccurate? Perhaps if the start date were 1933. But by 36 Stalin had already won, that's part of the tragedy of the purges and how unnecessary they were.
