    Some ideas after playing test game with USSR. Riga province should have level 1-2 naval base(diesel submarines base) and level 1 air base (50's - 60's fighter base, 70's Su24 base). Leningrad still have some fortifications, which should be deleted. Also I think it's great idea to have event chain for Moscow Anti-Air defence deplyment during cold war(btw, I think AA sites must be reworked to represent SAM batteries/regiments in province, thus leading to increase of IC and time cost).

    Done the first part, deleted fortifications and added both naval and submarine bases.

    Could you explain better the part of the event chain? please.

    I think that the AA sites can only be improved using the tech tree.
    Their code inside building_costs.txt is like this:
    Code:
    anti_air = {
    	cost		= 3
    	buildtime 	= 60
    	manpower	= 0.5
    	size		= 1
    }
    BTW what do you think about the new shields, IC distribution and the landscape pics?

    The S-25 SAM system was designed for purpose of Moscow AA defense, from incoming Western bombers during WW3. You can read about it here: Global Security, Wikipedia
    I though it will be good idea to make event chain about it, but after reading some sites, I found that it was already functional in 1955, so nevermind.

    About in-game AA sites, IMHO they should work like this: initial cost should be same as in vanilla HoI, representing AA artillery batteries in province, but after 60's Air defense tech research, their building time and cost, should rise up dramatically, along with efficiency, is there any way to determine how much AA sites player has via event?

    Shields look awesome, well done. Landscape pics are great, though it's hard to read province name on Jungle, Forest and Swamp ones(btw, Kharkov, Smolensk and Minsk provinces have same pic). As for IC, it needs extensive playtesting to figure it out.

    Olle8: Not really. As of now, we don't have real possibility to implement them as they worked in real life. Puppet is not an option, cause all soviet respublics had common industrial resources, one currency, common conscript pool and so on.

    Yeah i agree with Foxbat, if we add the Soviet Socialist Republics as puppets, we should include others like Yugoslavian Serbia and Croatia and so on, it would be a waste of tags.

    BTW, it's possible to use the 1.2 patch with the cold war mod, just install the patch in a new folder, copy the .exe from the patch and apply the new NTL patch made by Quintelosky, you can find it here:

    Well, for the republics, you may made them like this: put them in the same color like USSR, and, put the soviet flag in the provinces, made them in alliance with USSR. For Bulgaria, Croatia, and others they are independent states, but with close relations with USSR, especially Bulgaria 'till Gorbachov, he don't like Jivkov, so the relations wit USSR become more unstable.

    I want to leave this clear, i will not include the Soviet Socialist Republics because it's a big useless and unreal piece of nonsense and because as i said earlier, if we add SSR, then we should add the German Länders, the Yugoslavian Republics, the US States.... and so on.

    Regarding the Soviet and Yugoslav republics,they wouldn't be a waste of tags,since they are going to declare independence in the 90s.I would add them as off-map nations that would be puppets and allies of their mother countries.That would be good,since it would represent some things,like e.g. the Croatian spring in Croatia or the rise of Milošević in Serbia,without being just events that use flags.
    BTW,Soviet and Yugoslav republics aren't same as German Lander or US states,since someone from Texas and someone from California/Ohio/Missouri/NY are both Americans,someone from Brandenburg and someone from Bavaria are both Germans,but in USSR or SFRY we have Russians,Ukrainians,Latvians,Tatars,Kazakhs,Georgi ans etc.,or Croats,Serbs,Bosniaks,Macedonians,Slovenes and Montenegrin in case of SFRY.
    EDIT:Oh,and could you upload this to some other site?Since I cant download the file from File Front (shows "There was an error processing your request; it appears to be invalid or there was an error with your conection. Please wait while your request is retried... " when I try to download.
    EDIT2:Nevermind,it was fixed.

    I wasn't talking about the nationality feelings of the Serbians, Croatians, Ukranians... and so on, that's something that i'm not questioning.

    I was talking about the configuration of the state itself. I mean, i know that SFRY was composed by those republics and the final decision in a subject (the action that SFRY was going to make) was some kind of agreement made between them (that's the process roughly), the same happened in DFR, USA (specially in elections) and i don't know the situation of USSR, i suppose that Foxbat would know better than me, but as he said the SSR shared a common army (like in SFRY) common resources (like in SFRY) and so on.

    Furthermore, having them as off map nations would waste precious ghost province ids, which are needed for the modification of the map that (i hope) will be made.

    Republics of USSR worked exactly how state system works in USA, fact that they were multi-national means nothing, comparing to the fact that
    1. Republics had one currency - ruble
    2. Republics had one common army
    3. Military industry was spread between all republics(for example in Riga, we had couple of important military factories, one of them being Alfa - biggest production site of electronics for ministry of defense and space program in USSR), same goes for civil industries(here in Riga we had VEF - one of the biggest consumer electronics production sites and RVR - produced commuter trains for whole USSR).
    4. There were no official language in USSR until 1990, theoretically you could use any language of republic that was part of USSR(though bassicaly it boiled down to russian and local native language, for example here in Latvia we had street signs on russian and latvian languages)
    5. There were no customs on internal borders, just like now in EU
    6. and so on...
    Though formally each soviet republic was declared independant by constitution, they were directly controled from Moscow

    Have A problem: When I run the mod everything is ok, but when I click Single Player the mod stops responding, and show me an error. This Error:

    I've download it from the instaler that was made by Foxbat(nice work )
    And When I press Abort, the whole game crash with VisualCC error, can this be from the No Time Limit Patch??
