First time playing this mod. Question: when playing as Germany I cannot build any ships at the start of the game. Only subs and transports. No surface warships at all. I researched the first carrier upgrade available and it too did not show up as an allowable build. I stopped playing somewhere in mid 33. Is there an event that allows further ship building or is this a bug?
After the lost WW1 Germany was forbidden to build any bigger warships (and panzers, air force, chemical weapons, bigger artillery, having an army bigger than 100k, no draft etc... all secretly circumvented at least to a small extent but not openly until 1935...).
Most of this changed in 1935: The ship limitations were changed in the anglo-german naval treaty, and enouraged by this, the successful reoccupation of the Rhineland/Ruhrgebiet and several other things Hitler from then on just ignored all the other restrictions, starting the Wehrmacht in 1935, reintroduction of a draft-system, Luftwaffe etc.
Quite some of this stuff is implemented in EoD and should show up as events at the approbiate date.
In game terms this means, you can research everything right from the start but are allowed to produce only later, usually after an event.
