    Some info on whats going to happen in the next weeks

    Hello everyone!
    My name is Lennart Berg, and I am the project leader here at BL-Logic. Our team will be working closely with Paradox Development Studio to make the cold war come alive for you next year in East vs West: A Hearts of iron Game (EvsW).

    Some might recognize the parts of the team from Arsenal of Democracy: A Hearts of Iron Game (AOD) or from the active community like CORE, TT mod and varius other mods from the community
    for a whole year it has been rumored in the forum, that yes... something new is coming.
    And so the time has come for us to reveal our true colors with our version of the cold war

    As you can imagine trying to simulate this turbulent time of a cold war sets some very high demands on every aspect of the game.
    This game was started with close ties with our friends at PDX Dev Studio and the game is still very early in development.
    But things are taking shape nicely and I’m sure you will be quite surprised of all the goodies we have in store for you

    Over the coming weeks, we are going to introduce to you the members of the team. With a twist .
    With each team member introduction we will also give you a secret message and the first to crack the code will receive a gift of his choice - a copy of either AOD or Hearts of Iron III Collection.
    Of course we can’t keep on giving those for easy gains,

    So you need to take in to account what kind of team member we are introducing and what that person is contributing with to the game
    A hint is that a C++ coder might have a heavier encrypted message, while a map cartographer will send you on a treasure hunt to search the world map. Curious?
    well then look forward to next week


    Team Introductions:

    Good to hear some official news ! The little coding thing is fun but I'm a 100% sure I'm not going to crack a single one of them so...

    That's pretty cool, although I would prefer some news on the coming game instead.

    When can we expect first dev diaries?

    Sure, but thats still a some months away... alpha comes first

    We would really appreciate help on the historical research for unit models though (land units) which basically means picture, name, and tech level.
    If you have some time and maybe added a unit model to HOI3 or similar, just write a mail to gfkeresztes@gmail.com and get your name in the credits

    Thanks for the reply! Do you have a timeline for when beta is supposed to start or is it the old "when it's ready"?

    What exactly do you mean? You mean naval unit, and stuff like that? If so, let me get one of my books, and start on sending them to you. I also guess it is Kalingrad.

    Picture should be public domain or one that can be made public domain (for example a picture you take).
    Photos from books are not good.

    Proper Dev Diaries, please. It's later than September.
    There is a theory which states that if anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

    True, but most of the power is in the hands of the publisher, so it's up to paradox to decide when we see dev diaries or anything else.
