Hello everybody and welcome to another dev diary for the upcoming Barbarossa patch and yet to be announced DLC. Today I’m going to be talking about the first focus tree which is a rework of Poland.

Poland was first added as a free DLC on release for everyone titled "United and Ready" so as such what you see in this diary will be free for everyone once Barbarossa drops. Next diary we will continue on to cover the DLC parts of the focus tree, because the tree is a bit too large to cover in one go. Enjoy!

Poland is interesting because it is a hugely popular minor (it's roughly as popular as Spain and more popular than Greece). Yet it has a very difficult position sandwiched between Soviet and Germany, which tend to scare people off. Perhaps it's the challenge, or its critical role in WW2, or just the large amount of Polish HOI4 fans, you tell me.

Pol1.png


So, if we load up the tree we can see not only Ignacy Mościcki’s beautiful new portrait, but an entirely new tree.

Pol2.png


Let’s start with the industrial branch. In the old tree, the player would have to dredge through a lot of low-value research bonuses to get just a few extra factories, so many of those old focuses have been expanded with extra factories and bonuses. But, this branch is not just about getting free factories, Poland is on a tight schedule and must use her time well if she has ambitions of outlasting the Reich.

Pol3.png


Many industry focuses for Poland grant powerful but temporary bonuses towards consumer goods and construction speed so time the funding of your armement well to maximize the bonuses you’ll get.

Pol4.png


Poland was a nation with many problems in 1936, and one such problem was that their rail networks were disparate and disconnected; largely due to the fact that Poland had only a few decades prior been part of three different nations. Among many problems this caused for Poland, it also disrupted their agricultural supply networks, which resulted in the Peasant’s Strike of 1937.

Pol5.png


Beginning as mere whispers among the peasantry, if Poland fails to join the supply networks and enact major agricultural reform, they will be faced with a nasty peasant’s strike, damaging their stability, industry, and populace. Though on a tight schedule, Poland may pacify the countryside to delay this uprising, but until reform is enacted, the peasants will remain restless.

Pol7.png


Failing to enact reform entirely will result in a massive populist uprising, and a civil war is the last thing Poland needs. If Poland is to survive the Reich and the USSR, she must be united and ready.

Pol6.png


Moving on to another issue Poland had in the 30s; we have the Free City of Danzig! Danzig/Gdansk was in a unique and complicated position in this period. The city was simultaneously free and owned by no-one, an official Polish protectorate, and an international city partially run by the League of Nations. So representing Danzig/Gdansk as an on-map tag in 36 felt not quite right, so instead the city is demilitarized and Poland is incapable of accessing any of their factories, resources, or manpower.

Pol8.png


When the Nazi party took power in the city, it strangled Polish trade, so Poland begins the game with the “Embargoed Economy” trade law, similar to Undisturbed Isolation in the US but not nearly as harsh. To remove the Embargoed Economy, Poland must either develop a new trade port in Gdynia, gain a new port through conquest, or clamp down on Danzig.

Pol9.png

Pol10.png


Attempting to seize control of Danzig will cause the city to begin a resistance, and Poland can fight that resistance through decisions and the usual resistance/compliance mechanics. With enough compliance, Poland will be able to ban the Nazi party and take permanent control of the city; ending the resistance, gaining access to all of Danzig’s resources, manpower, and industry, and finally being able to remove the embargoed economy.

Pol11.png


Failing to bring Danzig under control will result in the city rising up against you and appearing as a tag on the map. Failing to stamp out this uprising in time will cause the city to defect to the Reich.

Pol26.png


When either Gdynia or Danzig has become Poland’s major port, they gain access to the rest of their naval branch, granting dockyards, factories, and research bonuses.

Next up we have the old Prepare for the Next War branch, which has been expanded quite considerably since its original implementation. Poland now has access to Plan East and Plan West, military plans to fight the USSR and the Reich.

Pol12.png


Historically, Poland believed the USSR to be the greater threat and didn’t begin preparing Plan West until just two years before invasion. But, with the power of hindsight, the player can start either plan immediately after completing the Prepare for the Next War focus, and accumulate forts and construction bonuses along the border.

Pol13.png


However, until Plan West has been completed, Plan East cannot be begun and vice versa, but when complete, no further focuses from the branch may be taken.

Pol14.png


Finally, probably the part of the tree that has received the most love; the historical Polish political focus branch. Poland was not the united stable regime we had previously seen on release. Along with impending threats outside their borders, Poland was (like most authoritarian regimes) plagued with infighting and factionalism.

Pol15.png


The dictatorship was divided between the Castle lead by Ignacy Mościcki, the Sanation Right lead by Edward Rydz-Śmigły, and the Sanation Left led by Walery Sławek.

Pol16.png


Each branch of the Sanation has a series of focuses that can be completed for various bonuses and the player does not have to commit to one faction or the other right away. Rather, you can form your government with a multitude of policies from each of the three factions, but the longer you spend forming your government, the less time you have for other things like industry and plans East and West.

Pol27.png


Historical Poland will also have access to the April Constitution, the binding document of the Dictatorship. Though it begins weak, through collaboration with Sanations Left and Right, the Constitution will become a powerful bonus to Poland's politics. With all power consolidated in the President, you'll be able to change your laws and your cabinet with ease.

Pol17.png


Time isn’t your only opponent here though, each of the two factions will expect Mościcki to appease them by enacting their policies and giving them power. Every focus of the Left you complete will make the Right more irritated and vice versa. On top of that, both factions will passively gain irritation over time so spend too long without taking a side and you risk losing both to civil wars.

Pol18.png


Historically, Mościcki maintained control of the government until wartime, at which point it was agreed Śmigły would take control, but Poland failed to last long enough for this to take effect. However, if the player has appointed either Śmigły or Sławek as Chairman of Poland, the Sanation Right/Left can supercede the Castle and become the majority controller of the government. This enables some light alt-history within the historical branch, as well as unlocking new diplomatic options for Poland.

Pol25.png


Available to all three factions of the dictatorship is the Align With the West branch, which allows Poland to join the Allies as they were able to in their old tree.

Pol19.png


In the 30s, Lithuania was technically at war with Poland until the 1938 Polish ultimatum to Lithuania in which Poland demanded an end to the cold war over Vilnius. As well as being able to gain cooperation and eventually an alliance with Lithuania, Poland may also demand Lithuania’s annexation which can result in occupying Lithuania without the need for war, but take this focus with caution as it extends your frontline with the Axis.

Pol20.png


Lastly, the Romanian Bridgehead Strategy has now been moved to the diplomatic branch and allows Poland to bring Romania into the allies. Historically, Poland and Lithuania had an alliance prior to the war, and Poland can pursue this alliance closer, bringing Romanian guns to the Polish front.

Pol21.png


The Sanation Right exclusively has access to Polish Revanchism which has now been expanded into its own full branch. As well as being able to demand the annexation of Lithuania, the Right can pursue both a restored Commonwealth and fulfil the ambition of the Polish–Czechoslovak confederation.

Pol22.png


Lastly, the Sanation Left has access to an expanded Baltic Alliance path, allowing them to gain alliances with the Baltic states, Czechoslovakia, and Romania, and unlocking the newly expanded Between the Seas branch!

Pol23.png

(It's worth mentioning at this point that most focus icons are placeholder)

No matter which path Poland is pursuing, as long as Poland is not in a faction already, they will be able to realize the Intermarium ambition and create an alliance from sea-to-sea! All they need to do is be considered a major or be a faction leader already, and have a large army. At this point, Poland can be considered a real contender for a major alliance of their own.

Pol24.png


The old Between Seas focus was not really “between seas” so much as it was just a Baltic alliance, but now the first nation to be invited to the faction is Romania. After Romania has made their decision, the alliance can spread any direction; north into Scandinavia and the Baltics, and south into the Balkans. Though unlikely, an Italian alliance is not out of the question for Poland here, but some significant change in policy for either nation would be necessary to tempt the Italians away from the Axis.

That’s all for this one, next week we’ll be talking about Poland’s DLC-locked alternate history branches!

Lovely stuff, just one issue:
View attachment 704132
You can be at war with romania and still do this focus :) Same for between two seas
That is intended. If Romania is at war with Poland, they do not get the faction invitation but Poland can still get the doctrine bonus. Similarly, Between the Seas creates the faction without inviting Romania if they are at war.

Does it mean Poland will be cool country to play? Cannot wait for that!
I certainly hope so! I've been having a lot of fun with it in our internal multiplayers anyway! :p
Are there any 35 day focuses?
Quite a lot of them are 35 days, actually. Particularly the Sanation focuses are quite short.
Am I missing something? How can Poland both be a faction leader and not in a faction?
What I meant to say was they cannot be in a faction and not be faction leader. If they are leader of the faction they're in, the Miedzymorze branch is unlocked to them, but if they are not leader, the branch is locked.
For Polish-Czechoslovak federation, wouldnt a name like Zapadoslavia (slavia of the west) fit more and be less of a mouthfull to say?

Also will this be able to evolve into a greater slavia of sorts?
The Polish Revanchism branch is more about territorial claims and expansion, not so much about forging a new nation. You do not get cores on Czechoslovakia or become any new formable nation through this branch.
It's Kashubia.
That's correct. I did not mean to show off any new releasable tags in this diary beside Danzig but ah well, we've had more critical things leak in the past :p

What's the purpose of Plan East if the Soviets currently don't help in the invasion?
Mainly for the historical AI to waste time on it as Poland did historically, and also for alt-history scenarios where Poland and Germany are friends or Soviets invade Poland first. On historical AIs you definitely want to focus on Plan West
How are we supposed to tempt Italy away from the Axis if you are staying unaligned? Is there going to be some new mechanic to draw Italy away? Or maybe a... Italy rework ?
There's a few ways. The Miedzymorze branch is available to all ideologies, so aligning your ideology with Italy will make them more likely to join you, but it's still not guaranteed.
Love the work, cant wait to play it!

But I really dont like all those 'invite xxx' focuses, do anyone actually waste 35/70/wtever days to do those? Please consider changing them to say just one focus which enable decisions to invite.
Something I didn't show here is that Poland has access to Diplomatic Mission decisions which make potential nations more likely to join Poland's faction when the focus is completed, so it removes a lot of the randomness we usually see from these kind of focuses. Do you wanna spend extra time doing diplomatic missions to almost guarantee them joining or would you rather just get it done fast and roll the dice?
Pol28.png

If Dantzig revolts and joins Germany, will the Germans still be able to take the “Dantzig or war” focus ?
Germany will still have a path to war with Poland, yes.
Only slightly annoyed Plan East is to the left of Plan West
I live to please >:)
WIll you expand more on the Peasant's Union like what ideology they are?
The Peasant's Strike is a coalition of Democrats, Socialists, and Communists. Much like Republican Spain on release, the Peasant's Union is a democratic nation with high communist support.

It's been like 15 minuts and modders on a Discord server are already complaining. That's HOI4 for ya! :p
Only two things in this world are certain; death, and HoI4 modders complaining.
@Meka66 Have you considered adding a friendship national-spirit with Hungary or something preventing them from entering war against Poland in 1939 as happened historically (let alone letting Germany use their railways)? Or is this too difficult to implement?

Also, any new Generals? The selection of current ones is pretty weird with many (frankly, almost all) important missing and you can't display the 1939 OOB in the slightest, even with huge abstraction.

Edit: I looked at all the pictures again and saw you added at least Marshall Rydz and General Haller! Great!
Yes, there are new generals but I didn't want to show them all off just yet, so you get a sneak peak at Smigly and Haller but there's more to come ;)
Poland has a massive history, and probably be near impossible to add all of it nicely lol
Yep! Part of the reason why the tree is the size it is was me constantly digging up new interesting things about Polish history and it not feeling right to leave stuff out. It's a pretty intricate situation in 36 and I have done my best to portray most of it, but representing everything would almost be making an entire game in itself :p
Speaking of Lithuania, does the country now re-annex the Vilnius region in accordance with her dealings with Soviet Russia in the fall of 1939, as happened historically?
I can confirm that under certain circumstances, Lithuania can regain Vilnius without war.
While the content is looking very promising, I have some doubts about the... descriptions in the post. Excuse me for my picking on this (as I'm a Pole), I may be wrong, but:


As far as I know, Second Polish Republic between 1926 and 1939 was authoritarian country, not a country with a dictatorship. While I'm not, in any way, denying Bereza Kartuska's existence (for example), it was more authoritarian than totalitarian country. But, if you have sources, post them - I'll be happy if I turn out to be wrong that way.

I'm 100% sure this 3-part-rail-system problem was solved waaaay before 1936 ;) The main focus of Polish State Railways around that time was expansion of rail lines to the east of Vistula and beginnings of electrification in and around Warsaw.
I'll update some of my wording, thank you for your feedback!
will poland have access to danzig dockyards at the start? i'd hate to be deprived of being able to repair/build some ships before we integrate danzig, especially since historically poland had a number of ships built there.
No they do not, but while Gdynia is not as developed as Danzig at game start, it is still an okay port-city and you can manage your navy there.

I thought of this as well reading through the dev diary. Neither Allies nor Germany would be ok with Poland annexing Danzig like this.
The Allies lose opinion of Poland if they go down this path, but a full-scale intervention doesn't seem like something the Brits would have done at this time. Germany, on the other hand, does gain the option to intervene as the situation escalates. Seizing Danzig is the quicker but riskier option, but developing Gdynia is safer and slower.
Does Supporting Sanation Left turn you democratic? Also is the Peasants Union playable? really excited to play with these!
Stay tuned next week ;)

Paradox literally just taking work from the RT56 devs and passing it off as their own. First 3 from dev diary, last 2 from RT56
I apologise. I will try to avoid basing my future focus trees on history, as that risks infringing on the original ideas of modders who legally own the rights to Polish history.

I really loved the work and the updated tree will make Poland a lot more fun to play! Just one question, though: isn't the tree going to have a problem similar to France of being too long, in the sense that it would take until 1950 to finish everything? I know Poland didn't really have time to invest in everything before the war, but at the same time, if most focuses are 70 days, I think a lot of your amazing work will go unexplored :confused:
It's not intended that you complete the entire tree in one playthrough. Poland's on a tight schedule, and you must budget your time accordingly. Maybe you spend a long time on the Sanation and get an amazing government, but you've neglected your military and now your army is super small and your fortline weak.

Hope Germany would be less likely to puppet Danzig or KSB.

As of 1.10.x, Germany would still leave Poland in Katowice if Poland is not in any faction.
The Danzig tag largely exists only to cause a resistance and be a pain in the neck for Poland. Under most circumstances, the tag is removed when Poland is invaded and Poland cannot release them diplomatically so seeing an on-map Danzig should be pretty rare.
Disappointing that the 'Historical' path is to hold off both Germany and USSR and then die?
This is only part 1/2 my dude.

Maybe you will introduce something like this into the game?
Namely, the point is that the Germans (3rd Reich) attacked Poland on August 26 and not on September 1. The order from the main German command did not reach all divisions. One of the units attacked Poland as originally planned. Polish soldiers managed to blow up an important railway tunnel, so it did not fall into enemy hands.
The focus "Sabotage Polish Industry" in Plan West/East has such an effect. As your territory is taken over, your railway lines, industry, and infastructure will be sabotaged to varying degrees.
Gdynia was already a major port in the baltic. I also think poland should start with dockyards at the start, how will you otherwise explain the polish fleet exisiting in hoi4 in 1936
The state still has dockyards and such in it, you just don't have access to Danzig's unless you clamp down. You're not building the port from scratch, but expansion of Gdynia did not conclude until 38.

You are aware that the tree on which this is clearly based was in fact historically inaccurate in multiple ways? Like it would be fine to base yourself on history but this is just copied together with all the wrong things it had and in addition there are several major mistakes of your own. There was no such thing as Sanation "Left" it was instead the "Colonels" group, similarly Sanation "Right" is also a term created only for the mod "Historical Poland" which is part of "Road to 56" and this is the only place you could get it from.
The terms Sanation Left, Right, and The Castle came from the beginning of my research; the illusive shadowy source known as "Wikipedia" https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sanation#Legislative_agenda
There is no historical path as there is only a way to go with one of the three groups but its clearly missing the option to have a compromise between Mościcki and Rydz-Śmigły.
The historical path would be appointing Smigly the Second Man of the State but then finishing the Castle, which is something you are able to do.
Poland also had normal elections and in fact its last one was in 1938 while in your proposition the elections are clearly set to "none".
My research pointed to the elections being somewhat dubious, so they are represented as not having elections.
And OZON was not named OZON but OZN, ozon was a joke/common name for it.
Again, it's what showed up in my research. I can shorten it to OZN.
Nice job, @Meka66! Your content designing skill is better than the last one.... (cough... Al Andalus... cough... no Arabiab formable rework... cough...).
How dare you. Al-Andalus is the greatest piece of HoI content ever created and I will not hear otherwise.

An


All I see is buff everyone, debuff Germany, apparently the biggest lottery winner in the world as they weren't even comparable to the mighty Poles economically.

Lol....
if a 720 day reduction in consumer goods is enough to make you lose the war to Poland as Germany, you have nobody to blame but yourself.

@mekka66 i like that you constantly give us awnsers to our questions or just talk with us, it's something you don't see that often from the other PDX people (i guess mostly because they got other stuff to do, then just posting DDs).
Honestly as much as I love reading through feedback and questions and making jokes, sometimes it does get exhausting when you have that one guy who's complaining that their very specific thing isn't included or that we ripped off their favourite mod or whatever stuff like that.
Is Suwałki going to be it’s own state to make the German-Soviet border more accurate?
No plans to rework Polish states right now.

@Meka66

Sorry for asking again but you seemed to have missed these questions so i'll give it a shot one more time (or more, if i suddenly have come up with new questions xD).

1. Will you account for the fact that Hungary didn't enter into direct (and in-direct) conflict with Poland in 1939 and both countries would have probably refused to do so?
It's not represented in the game, no. Usually Poland is long dead by the time Hungary has entered the war so it doesn't really seem worth the time.
2. Something like "Prusya Guard" makes no sense in the Polish language.
Either make it English from the get-go " ThePrussian Guard" or go with "Gwardia Pruska"
Aye, fair point, it can be changed.
3. Is there any representation of the KOP (Border Protection Corps) either by focus (maybe i have missed it), on-map divisons or in any other way?
I didn't really make many changes to Poland's starting divisions.

Can't wait for rest of the tree, especially left wing side. Will it mąkę possible to create Polish Army in the East(same in the West) , what about generals and other commanders like Rola-Żymierski, Berling etc, doing an appeasment with soviets even after the fall of Poland, like Sikorski-Majski treaty that allowed to create an army in USSR.
And will there be Bierut as head of KPP, or any alternative while it's reformed to PPR on brink of liberation east part of country by Red Army and Polish People's Army, maybe Wasilewska? Gomułka?
And maybe making able to transfer Rokossovsky into Polish Army?

Still great diary!
Alt-history stuff is next week ;)

The option to get the Nordic countries to join in a Polish led alliance is rather extreme alt-history already.
I miss-spoke, paid alt-history is next week. Miedzymorze stuff is available to all Polish political branches, hence it is for both DLC owners and non-DLC owners

So to make it short: Utter nonsense, another Bulgaria-style OP minor focus tree. What happens when you control the Baltic coast line, do you also get close to 100 free dockyards as Bulgaria?
You can form "Big Polandia" and you get cores on the world.
Italy on the othet hand like Germany are the stars, you want to focus on the stars not the supporting cast.
I'll get started on the Italy rework as soon as I'm done making Victoria 3, gimme a sec.
My point was that it seems really strange that any Nordic country would join a Polish alliance, barring Poland being the leader of the Allies and Germany declares war.

To others, how it seems to work is that we get the Tree we see in this thread for free, but the covered over parts is in the DLC.
It's largely based on the various ambitions Pilduski had for the Intermarrium. Some plans included the nordics, some included the Balkans, etc. Sure, Sweden would be unlikely to join, but it's a fun thing the player can try and achieve.

No I'm on about how we already have a Poland DLC, this would mean that we'd have 2 Polish DLCs and the first one would be meaningless.
What you see here is unlocked with either Poland: United and Ready or the upcoming DLC :)

Next week's diary will be stuff you only get from the upcoming DLC. Much like how we divided past focus tree reworks, but rest assured, you will still have access to the old alt-history content as well if you don't have the DLC.
