Godspeed: A Flame for Winter. Heard it got canceled and they released a half-broken alpha version for the public, but didn't try it. It had a ton of potential all over the place. Now its spot is replaced by Hearts of Durasteel, which seems to have almost died, but then resurecred and is now silent again.

Eh, they always sit out the whole game which is kinda boring, it could be fun to see them join one or the other side. They could have a commie revolution and be an unassailable fortress in the heart of Europa.

Will Paradox ever implement a peace-treaty system that allow countries to end wars without total capitulation? I.E. ending a war by requesting reparations and minor territorial concessions instead having to occupy the whole country.

 No.18751

>>18750
That would be great, however, I can see why that isn't in the game since it's supposed to be a WW2 sim.

As per r*ddit:
>New Italian Focus Tree:
>Follow the historical path of Mussolini’s Italy or rewrite history by restoring power to the monarchy, leading a Communist revolution or promoting democracy.

>New Ethiopian Focus Tree:

>Defy the odds to defeat the Italian invader or resist the conqueror from abroad using unique Government in Exile abilities.

>New Swiss Focus Tree:

>Surrounded by France, Germany and Italy, the mountain nation of Switzerland finds strength in its neutrality, balancing competing factions and overtures from the great powers.

>New Peace Conference Options:

>Demilitarize zones of the map or entire nations, bid on the capital ships of defeated powers, or claim control of enemy resources or factories as reparations.

>Aircraft Designer:

>Design and build your own planes, from nimble interceptors that prioritize speed to durable bombers crafted to unload tons of destruction from high above.

>Unit Medals:

>A log of each division’s accomplishments lets you track their performance, and even allows you to award unique medals to division commanders for their actions in the field.

>Embargo Interaction:

>Embargo your enemies with a new diplomatic interaction, preventing them from trading with you if they have generated enough world tension.

 No.18786

>>18761
It's stupid though because the more you add massively diverging routes the less the focus tree system works/makes sense. There are actual ways to have alternate history without going full retard, like Mussolini backing the Austrofascists.

 No.18787

>>18786
What? Exploring small and sensible changes that could have plausibly happened and seeing how they butterfly-effect out into massive ones? Naah, that's boring! Let's add Byzantium recreation and an inevitable Inca cultural restoration path once the inevitable SA expac comes out!
At this point TNO, and even KR are probably more historically accurate and realistic than baseline game

 No.18788

>>18787
Yeah it's an absolute hot mess of a game and I can't believe nobody ever points it out. It feels like there's a dozen possible formable factions with just a single socialist nation at this point that inevitably end up with a bunch of fascists and democrats in them because of all the independent socialist meme trees.

Yeah, and IMO making a good althistory project without any concessions to science fiction is quite an unrealistic prospect as it would require extreme suspension of disbelief to work.

I guess HOI5 will probably step down a notch from all the nonsensical althistory autismo. Sorta like they did in CK2 → CK3.

I mean,it could just be that it's still the early DLCs and they're still in the roleplay focus,but one guy could kick down the door and be like "where is the sunset invasion !!!" (of course not,this shit was terrible and shat on by the community)

Their political system isn't complex enough to allow for anything else, unless they've totally revamped everything from the last time I played it

How did they step down in CK3? Its literally the same game as CK2 except now you can create your very own cults. I guess there is no spooky scary satanism (yet), but that's sort of it.

From what I just looked up it appears they made him into a lowkie wholesome path that is a mix of theoretical 19th century fascism, social democracy and bolshevism. Apparently he does a little democratization, is a German nationalist, but not in extremist way and eventually tries to make his ideology as the party line to stop revisionism, aka other left wing strains. From what I saw of the teasers, the fascist part mainly presents itself with the whole "social state/republic" idea.

How do you get Reg Birch and the communists into power in England? I won the war and elected the socialists but the entire political focus tree is just seething about how mean he is.
It's obvious which countries were written by libs, kek

 No.19051

>>19050
He doesn't have a focus tree so it's kind of pointless, but IIRC if you go through with condemning Birch without destroying socialist support enough, it gets turned back around on you and Birch BTFOs you with facts and logic and put in power

Also apparently the British Labour focus tree was written by a Barry Goldwaterite American Republican (yes really)

Only if you were retarded, I think. Although Panzer was far more ruthless and it generally got better for both communists and some lowkie-rightoid but in an esoteric-conservative way guys, like that "Hindustan needs rework" dipshit. I'd still be on the sub despite my clearly red-glowing posts, if not for reddit admins banning me along with everyone else who ever participated with Chapo subreddits all those years ago.

 No.19218

I still can't get over the fact that the Battle for the Bosporus trailer makes it seem as if the Greeks, Turks and Bulgarians will all unite together against the Nazis.

Meanwhile, the Greek focus tree:
>1. Liberty and free elections! 2. KILL TURKEY
>1. Workers of the world, unite! 2. KILL TURKEY
>1. For his majesty the king! 2. Bring back the Ottomans (KILL TURKEY)
>1. Heil Hitler 2. Friends with Turks

That Luftwaffe guy in the trailer could have probably not worried about those three uniting together if the Germans just told them they'd give the Greeks Constantinople back or some shit. They'd hop on faster than a boomer clicking on a scam. Fucking Thanksgiving country.

 No.19235

Taboritsky is just Q bullshit for 1960s Russia
Was this intentional
