Will be sorted by date last updated. These might not all be compatible with whatever latest version of HIP is out. There's more to be added, maybe you want to help me out and post some links. As a disclaimer, some of the mods here will likely be incompatible with each other (check out the end of the post for a possible solution). A rough check is to paste the contents of one mod folder into another mod folder. If you're asked to overwrite files (please press skip), the mods change the same files and could cause problems. After the check, click undo to get your files back in their proper folders.

My mod collection Modular Tweaks & Additions is made to be as compatible with HIP as possible, with Vice and Virtue not requiring a compatibility patch, and Veneration Selection going to have a compatible version with 3.0 on release. New Artifacts has spawn logic taking into account HIP culture groups such as North Africans.

Maal's excellent society mods are compatible with HIP, with The Orders of Chivalry even having HIP's holy orders as joinable societies alongside vanilla ones.

Read again, pal. Compatible with SWMH, not EMF.
Not only SWMH, any HIP combos without EMF, but you've got it right in the list

You could i guess add a warning that there could be incompatilities between the submods or mods listed here.

Added. I don't initially bother with sorting the mods after date, but any time a mod is updated, I'll bump it to the top.

Yay! It'll get done just before the HIP - HF update. Then I'll have to uncrashify it before I release. ;)

This is a service and should be stickied.
Agreed...this should definitely be stickied. Really useful thread.

Walter's HIP mod
Includes lots of various changes, including laws @ start, de jure titles as well as ToaKraka's "Vassal Kings Are Dumb" pre-installed (though it includes an outdated version of that mod).
PS: Outdated as shit, and tacky to install
I do actually have an updated version of the mod but I've been holding off on posting it since I've been waiting for the Holy Fury update.
