I have played until the fall of 1940, and I see that the mod has already taken care of boosting the AI. A good mod.
Yes, unless you use the new AI options for Sealion, the game might be too easy. But if you do, you might run into some bugs. The event was created on the idea that the player might invade Britain after defeating USSR, so it takes into consideration many events for USA.

That event is in dire need of some fixing. Historically, USA was unlikely to declare war on Germany if they invaded Britain. In fact, during the 1940 the isolationism in USA was prevalent and most americans were not even sure that Britain could resist to Hitler.

They do declare war if Canada is invaded, which is quite possible in this mod, as Italy usually sends troop transports to invade the undefended Canadian provinces, unless the English are quick enough to capture Italian East Africa.

Are the authors still maintaining this mod? This is the best mod so far and I really disliked HOI4, would be nice if we could get an update until they release some new version which is worth it.
Do they also get donations?

The first post is not update, I got surprised there is a 2.3 version.

In fact, the mod is no longer actively developed due to lack of time. Heck - even the thread is not monitored adequately! However, I think that I have a somewhat bug-fixed version on my PC which also adds some difficulty if you are playing on hard or very hard (but certainly no fundamental changes). If you like I can upload this bug-fixed version, but do not expect too much from it.

Last, if there is a capable modder out there with sufficient spare time, do not hesitate to take over this project.

Are there any special events for invading the middle east in 1940/41?
Decisions about Saudi Arabia, status of Egypt (if you control it after passing Africa decision), Afghanistan, India and Turkey (after Bitter Peace and conquest of Balkans).

Is it ok to declare war manually, without decisions?

For some reason Vidkun Quisling appears in decisions relating to the occupation of Denmark?

Wow, I just managed to encircle a huge force of French, British (BEF) and Belgian troops in Bruuges. I captured Dunkirk first and received two free brigades! Not only that, I also managed to win the battle of France, in less than 30 days and with very low casualties. So I received a light panzer division as bonus. Against the AI, even on aggressive, it is not so difficult anymore. You don't want to aim for Paris first, but instead, encircle as many allied troops in Flanders. Any infantrybattle where your looses exceed 5000 troops, STOP them instantly. Instead only assault with you panzers. Once you destroyed 20-30 allied divisions in Flanders, the rest is easy. Just capture Paris and wait, don't even go south, just wait it out until the armistice sets in.

I really enjoy this mod, thank you! - even managed to hold out as Italy in Cyrenaica, until April of 1941, so almost 9 months of attrition, where my Stukas and the Italian medium bombers have reduced at least 5 allied divisions, mostly South Africans. In my first game with this mod, I had a German casualty rate above 300.000 before April 1941. Now its down to 90.000, and for that I got Poland, France (with Vichy), Netherlands, Luxembourg, Yugoslavia and now, almost Greece. The allied 'AI' just ecleared war on Norway, so I got all these heavy water blueprints for free. Excellent. Love this mod!

In my most recent game I went for the 'historical' option of driving through Sedan but my army got stuck in a big huge battle....

BUT

A corps of para's that I had flown next to Paris captured the city and that was the end of that.

Recently I saw that Stalin Line decision and later event are wrong. Most of the SL was done before 1933, in late 30s just some local improvements were introduced near Minsk and Kamieniec Podolski (so no fortification line popping up from Luga to Kamieniec, just 2 forts south of Minsk and in Kamieniec). Furthermore, Prypiat Marches were not fortificated; SL was behind them.

Well, there is always another way. The Sedan area, yes, huge battles there, often very costly. Today I avoid them. Flanders; perfect for panzers.

Here's a question, with normal/normal settings during Barbarossa the minor axis don't really do anything.

Shall I just take over Romania/Hungary and send then to the front?

Does making the AI aggressive help?

In the spring of 1941, against the AI, I always organise and deploy the troops from my allies. If you led the AI run them, it will only complicate things and increase the risk of unnecessary losses. Not sure about the other players, but I absolutely recommend assuming control of your allies.
