What if Germany had won the Great War? Kaiserreich: Legacy of the Weltkrieg
Depends of what it means for Japan to win. Winning against the USA is tale of delusion. But if Japan would have been content with attacking the USSR and China... that would mean a Japaneese hegemony in the far east.
Finally! i always wanted a more modern paradox grand strategy game would be like
A 3rdReich/GEACPS/USA mod for this game (once it is released) would likely be awesome. I envision that the point of divergence would start in the USA not joining the war soon enough, resulting in an unchanging trans-Atlantic conflict between Germany and the USA/UK. Once the middle east is reached, as well as Siberia, conflict would brew between Japan and the Reich as the Germans realize how weak and fractured Japan's rule in China is, and the Japanese begin to feel threatened as the Reich demands more from them. The goal of the game would be to either win the war faster than your opponents (and yourself) can develop and utilize advanced nuclear arms, or maneuver around political aims and diplomatic barriers to obtain a lasting peace before the world is slowly choked to death by irradiated clouds and burning cities. Rather than starting off cold and escalating into a hot war, you would start hot and try to cool things off before they became too dangerous.
Moving into dangerous territory here...

Just don make this game into a USA bs U.S.S.R game with any other nation eing boring as hell.Gotta love playing as Greece since ill start in the middle of a civil war
Just to say it's hard to imagine the world if the III reich had prevailed. But I agree that a "fatherland" mod would be quite interesting!
This is awesome, there are not a whole lot of cold war games. Can't wait to see how it turns out!

Well, I was just lurking through the forums when I saw this. Nice to see Paradox developing in conjuction with another dev a Cold War game.
As I am from Argentina, I have an special interest in the period the game is set.
After reading the whole thread, I only have 2 doubts:
1-How will the world's economics be represented in the game? (Abstract IC's like in HOI? Individual factories like in S.Ruler/Victoria? How would you differentiate the production and financial system? Will be Inflation present in the game?)
2-How would 3rd Wolrd Countries (As per Ideological classification, not economical) be represented? As with any Paradox game that allows history to diverge from real world results, It would be extremely neat to avoid having coup d'etats in Argentina while at the same time eliminating any communist influence.
PS: How do I register games? I have had since a long time EU3+NA (retail package) in my shelf, will the code on the reverse of the case work here?
EDIT:LOL. I have always thought the same. Specially in mods where you have to deal with colonial uprisings: Build a huge fleet of transports in less than 3 months -> Load all your troops -> Doom for anything that stands in your way. Like....to fight against 8 Rebel Militia Divisions with 20 tank divisions in Kaiserreich is a little bit too cheap.little in the way of guerilla warfare (i am pretty sure that with the HoI3-way of doing things, throwing large amounts of americans at the VC solves the problem within a month)
I believe that if the player has a democratic goverment...he has to submit a vote to the congress while having a Casus Belli (Embargo, territorial recuperation, etc etc)
