    Domination of the Draka

    DOMINATION OF THE DRAKA MOD


    Me and my friend have spent the last weeek or so doing a total port of the Draka mod from the HoI2 version to the Darkest Hour version, this version includes a completely remodelled event system as well assupport for the new Darkest Hour map.


    The Domination of the Draka mod is based upon a dystopian alternate history series by S. M. Stirling of the same name. You can find the wikipedia article for the novel here.
    If you have not heard about tis mod before, visit the old HoI2 thread about the mod for further information.
    A historical timeline of the Draka series can be located here.


    Here is a rough animated map timeline of the Drakas:


    Current state of the mod:
    Playable but AI is rather buggy, unless anyone can teach me how to mod the it, the team needs an AI modder.
    ONLY TESTED WITH DH 1.2


    Current Version: 0.5
    DOWNLOAD



    Installation instructions:
    1 - Download the file above
    2 - Make a new copy of you Darkest Hour Full folder in Darkest Hour\Mods
    3 - Rename the new folder to Domination of the Draka
    3 - Extract the content of the Draka 0.5.rar file to "Darkest Hour\Mods\Domination of the Draka"
    3 - Start the DH launcher and select "Domination of the Draka" as the mod to be loaded
    4 - Play!

    Extract the contents of the rar file to the mod directory in DH, then start the mod via the DH launcher.

    OH YEAH, Sorry about that, I forgot to tell you to make a copy of your DH full folder and then paste the draka files on top of it.

    My first thought: You've really gotta boost the Draka's IC. It's only 184 at start, when it's supposed to be a rival to the USNA.
    I am therefore officially rooting for a Franco-German strike on Russia, prompting the Soviets to strike back with their hitherto secret nukes. This will serve as a salutary lesson to all involved and leave everyone suitably chastened.-El Pip

    Yeah, I'll increase it up to something like 400 base IC.

    But for some reason ATM the Draka AI only manages to build IC. When I get to the year 1944 it normally has 800-1000 IC but the same ammount of everything else it had at the start of the game. Does anyone know how I can fix that?

    I've Increased Drakas IC to 320~ base IC, it now gets an average of 400 IC at the start of the game and suffers a -10% peace effect on the IC. And to accomodate that ammount of IC I had to imcrease the total energy and metal output per province so as to actually get a surplus.
    I also increased the total number of convoys form 100 to 300 because after a while all of the Drakan troops in islands would get out of supplies and disband.

    It's good to see yet another major HoI mod converted to DH engine!

    There could be number of reasons for that. Here are just few on top of my head
    - How big is the starting army? If it is too big compared to the available IC, the AI produces IC with priority (there's modifier in misc.txt that triggers this based on the IC used to supply troops)
    - There's an AI parameter that tells the AI when to stop to produce IC (IC_end_year = YYYY or something like that)
    - There's another AI parameter that defines the percentage of the IC that can be used for production

    Oh, I figured it out (I think) I was messing aroound the AI file and I found these lines:

    Code:
    ic_at_war = no
    	force_ic_until = 1945
    	ic_end_year = 1945
    	IC_provs = {
    		873 # Pretoria
    		876 # Johannesburg
    		872 # Durban
    		880 # Cape Town
    	}
    I think its building so much IC because its being forced to do so until 1945 by the ic_end_year and force_ic_until commands, so I changed them to 1938.
    I'm gonna test the game to see if that changes anything.


    EDIT: Oh and they have 183 divisions at the start of the game.

    Just one more thing:
    For some strange reason, Greece joins the axis together with Yugoslavia, and the soviets join the allies now that they arent in the comintern when barbarossa begins. And when Japan goes to war with the allies, the soviets join the war against japan :/.

    How can I fix that?

    Haven't read the books or played the HOI mod, but I find the timeline intriguing and will download this mod when I get home from work today. Thanks!

    Try setting this value in misc.txt to 0:
    # Should not aligned countries join automatically Allies/Axis when DoW by Axis/Allies and both alliances are at war? 1 = Yes, 0 = No

    Oh God, finally someone finished converting this! Was definitely my favorite concept, and was fun on AoD!

    After the last failed attempt to port it, I never thought it was going to actually go through.
