    The missing US multi-role fighter model images will be fixed asap. No need to post that guys.
    I've got nothing to say, but it's okay.

    One Question: After Germany is defeated, will it be shared between allies? Will there be an FGR? Is the DLC supporting a "cold war" after Germany falls?

    Japan attacked me in October 1941. I think it would be better if the war was always initiated with Pearl Harbor.

    I tried this mod as soon as i saw it waw out Nice first part of game, but i have a lil problem..: I started the game 2 times, and the two times Japan get powned by Nat China, or has many difficulties making progress. It was May 1941 and they barely managed to progress toward the yellow river.

    I also tryed giving the axis the AI bonus.....holly **** that's the heck of a bonus XD In 1940 Germany had 635 IC! I checked on the invasion of France, and the poor french got litteraly rolled over. In about one week, France, Netherland and Belgium were dead.

    Just starting and well into 1939. Great work as always but a few suggestions:

    1: Lose the blue "Union" blue and exhange it for the lighter green in the production
    units screen. Much more accurate and ALOT easier to read names/units! LOL!

    2: cosmetic change: Get the MR and Int names under the right catagory. Like the
    vanilla game and like the UK the models are reversed in name (ie P51 should not be
    MR). Also some ship types are wrong or too early or missing. Some names for
    the other 2 Yorktowns (Wasp, Hornet) are not there. US AAA crusiers should be
    a side build for one type (1940 AAA and speed, 1936 armor-main guns).

    Also would P51 be the "first" MR??? Should be the P39

    3. Add event: US naval damage control: this would allow US ships taking damage
    to reduce that damage by 5-10% from total taken from early 1942.

    4. Add event: US torpedo failure: thru 1942 US Sub attacks on convoys should be
    about 1/3 less effective (bad torpedos)

    5. Add event: Nationalize the National Guard: this event would (for a brief cost of IC
    and more of supply) upgrade all NG units to Inf (pain in the tuckus to do this by hand).
    This would be in early 1942.

    6. Perhaps only in MP games does the Panama Canal become endangered but there should
    be at least a level 2 coastal fort (darn big guns there) and a somewhat larger airfield and AAA.
    This was about the most protected area "in" the US (well really a bit of borrowed Panama)

    7. Is there someway when a research is done for the page (or somewhere) to find what is
    needed to get next type of aircraft/tank/ship. They do not always follow a single increase
    in all levels, sometimes an increase in one or more is enough for a new type but you have to
    guess or remember from previous games. Example on fighters a note on page that you need
    level such and such on each to get to next type of aircraft (plus any side research needed).

    8. Also (a cosmetic issue). Alot of pics of units still show German units instead of their
    US counterparts which looks awkward.

    Again great work but you know me, I can always find something more to suggest or complain
    about! LOL!

    Conference mechanism and post-war/WWIII is planned indeed as a big patch someday in the future. Let's fix the WWII for now and then I'll provide some more fun and free stuff.

    Cold War is not an option, as the engine is built for actual war and is not very good at diplomacy.

    Will it be on Impulse?

    I made the mistake of purchasing Dies Irae: Götterdämmerung from Gamersgate, turned out it didn't work with my Impulse install. Had to buy it again via Impulse.

    Na... Cold war is not that interesting for me . I meant if i win with the USA let say in 42 and Germany is finished... will there be the possibilty to attack the SU?

    Another Question: Does the German KI use IRAE techs and events? Can it be implented?

  14. #14
    I gave the axis bonus and wow, Japan has completely defeated China (1940s) and Germany is making progress in SU.

    I dont know what exactlly i did wrong but Roosevelt is no longer president and i was DOW'd in November by Japan. I cannot join the Allies because of my neutrality and the pearl harbor event doesnt fire because of the absence of roosevelt. I think some events couldnt fire because of Japan having beat China. (Where is the American help to China event via flying tigers event?)

    So now im stuck with just war with Japan after ive built an army ready to crush Germany . Guess ill still play through, its a little fun alternate history. Japan has been attacking my island bases with success.. Took Guam and taking the Phillipines. My Asiatic fleet put up a good fight and sent some Japanese transport ships to the bottom with full load before they retreated.

    Same question, for the same reason. Is there an impulse compatible version or will it be made available on impulse? I have money ready to be spent and a desire to play a good USA game of HOI.

    "Upon hearing of the Japanese attack on the United States of America at Pearl Harbor, bringing America into the war against the Axis powers, Churchill exclaimed “We have won the war!”"

    Germany had 1050 IC for me , they crushed France in the Maginot line which I didnt enjoy

    I see destroyers have names in Stars and Stripes. Do these represent individual destroyers now? Or are they still destroy flotillas that are named after the lead ship?
