About German air force: I think they should have some air units left, both in west and east, and quite many divisions, but with very low strength.

Some things about map:

Königsberg should be controlled by Germans, it fallen into Soviet hands in April 1945. See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Battle_of_Königsberg
Germans should have some 2 or 3 level forts in their border, since Hitler ordered in late 1944 that Westwall must be activied.

Thanks all.And about Volkstrum divisions,should they appear by event or Germany can start with them?Oh,and I was thinking that if Germany lasts more than historicaly,it may use a nuclear bomb.Yup,that's right.

And yes,it works with Doomsday,however I'm not sure for vanilla HOI2 and armaggedon.

Volksturm first appeared in 1944, AFAIK, so it could be there already (so you don't need to deploy them).

And place them all to Eastern front.

Oh and give Germany the "Volkssturm" doctorine

No, because it wasn't under civil government of French republic, it was under Allies occupying... Make there event where USA gives those provinces to Free France.

kurland (province mazirbe) remained in German hands until the end of the war, with a full army group of iirc 23, later dropped down to 16, divisions. so that should also be gray and not red, and with quite a few divisions in it.

15 divisions should be enough?

I still have to place up the OOb,and adding names to them it's quite bad.I'll soon finish them.
And for the Volkstrum doctrine,what effects should it have?I currently added:
HQ supply efficency bonus
Supply distance modifier
night attack
and urban attack

I'm just afraid that those divisions will be destroyed instantly in the game

I would turn Konigsberg, Breslau and Budapest into urban areas, and the Volkstrum tech should give high bonuses to urban defense. Historically there was fierce house to house fighting in those cities.

I would also give German cities level 1-2 forts.

About techs, I think you are absolutely right with Volksturm! Also another thing could be corrected: Deep Operations was revolutionary doctrine for Soviets, it combined huge power of mass assault and accuracy and speed of blitzkrieg. If you ask for me, I think it should give +40 morale and +10 organization...

Could there be for Germany events like: "XXX city lost, Volkssturm called in arms". Then player loses 10 manpower and gains Volkssturm division in some city which borders lost city and is controlled by Germans. Those new Volkssturm divisions could have anti-tank brigade with them, since Germans had quite good anti-tank rocket weapons.

EDIT: Example event for Breslau Volkssturm!

Code:
#########################################################################
#  Breslau Volkssturm
#########################################################################

event = {
	id = [find good ID]
	random = no
	country = GER

	trigger = {
		control = { province = 473 data = GER } # Breslau controlled by Germany
			NO = {
			OR = {
				control = { province = 479 data = GER } # Cracow
				control = { province = 482 data = GER } # Oppeln
				control = { province = 308 data = GER } # Küstrin
				control = { province = 309 data = GER } # Cottbus
				control = { province = 472 data = GER } # Liberec
				control = { province = 474 data = GER } # Ostrava
			}
			}
	}

	name = "Breslau Volkssturm"
	desc = "Since Allies now threat one of our biggest cities, Breaslau, we need quickly more troops to defense this city!"		
        picture = "oil_Supply"
	style = 0

	date = { day = 1 month = january year = 1945 }
	offset = 1
	deathdate = { day = 1 month = january year = 1946 }

	action_a = {
		name = "OK"
		command = { type = add_corps which = "Breslau Volkssturm" value = land where = 473 }
		command = { type = manpowerpool value = -10 }
		command = { type = add_division value = militia when = 1 where = anti_tank }
	}
}

Now, if I made everything correct, event should launch when Germans have lost some province around Breslaul. Then event adds one militia division to Breslau.

Quite strange it is not working? Did you correct the ID number? I'll look it tomorrow.
By the way, picture shouldn't be oil_supply, it should be German_replacements.

EDIT: Oh, just one thing... Maybe it should be

Code:
	action_a = {
		name = "OK"
		command = { type = add_corps which = "Breslau Volkssturm" value = land where = 473 }
		command = { type = add_division value = militia when = 1 where = anti_tank }
		command = { type = manpowerpool value = -10 }
	}

Looks nice! And that was very quick! But how about my event?
EDIT: I tested it, and I can tell, that it works fine with Armageddon 1.1 ...
However, you should add there MUCH more divisions for Germans, Allies and Soviets.
EDIT2: Few things should be fixed:

As there was speaken, Breslau, Königsberg, Frankfurt-am-Main, Amsterdam, Brussels, München and maybe some other cities could be Urban provinces... Province modding can be done in db/province.csv


Italian social republic should be puppet of Germany, it can be made with pasting this line
Code:
puppet = GER
into Italian Social Republic's .inc file. Also Italian Social Republic should be allied with Germans, and Germans should have troops in Italian Social Republic.

With Germans there's huge amount of troops without any divisions. Those troops should be deleted. Also KMS Tirpitz was sunk in 1944 and should be deleted.

German pockets (in mazirbe and dieppe) should have some +4 forts.
Army 6 should be Heeresgruppe Kurland. Also German divisions should be model 5 (1943) or 6 (1945), no 4 (1941), since German army had very good equipment.

There's Heeresgruppe Kurland (thanks for MYTH)

Locked divisions are reserves.
