Any reason you have not fixed the problem with ai not finish building the historical ships.. Italy and germany missing 8 battleships.. Thats a big problem.. Make this game more historical.. This is pissing me off... Fix it.. Seriusly.. And you think germany should focus subs.. No they have 5 subs 1942...
Proposed solution:
Part I: Make the AI stop scrapping ships under construction.
Part II: implement the guide to fix preset ships.

Dear devs, many of use were hoping you would add these fixes in 1.10 and are very disappointed now.

I really hope there is a way to disable the heavy cruiser pack, The french cruiser causes nasty graphics artifacts for me under Linux since man the guns.
Changed graphics card, disto and driver versions and nothing seems to fix that.
I'd submit that as a bug report if you haven't already.

I think that the revision of the Yugoslav tree is missing me similar approaches to the Netherlands or France to promote partisan struggle or guerrilla war that is, approaches after having capitulated that it was I believe there should be two alternatives a Serbian nationalist as historically were the Chetniks another favored Titoite communist partisans

I would also like for another dlc or package a small shared tree in the style of Chinese warlods for the Balkan countries such as Croatia, Montenegro such as road 56, Albania could also be included

So what have we actually done? We have integrated little short video clips tied to alerts and such to help illustrate how to deal with them. These are also accessible from the ingame menu for browsing. Do note that this is not some full coverage of features yet, but we hope it will be enough to see if there is any impact on new player behaviors and if it works out there is a good chance we will record and add more in the future if we roll it out for everyone.
Very nice! Still learning how to play this game so it's very appreciated!

Thanks for the free boats, and I can't wait to start a Bulgaria game when the DLC comes out.

The last region that NEEDS to be fleshed out is Scandinavia! Norway needs a national spirit/mechanics akin to the Netherlands' 'Shell-shocked spectator of the Great War,' and Finland needs *thorough* fleshing out into a proper minor power in order to withstand the Winter War in an immersive way. There's also potential to make Sweden's awkward situation in the war fun.

Cheers for the DD Podcat, and much excitement with the release just around the corner :cool: Best of luck to the team for the release - I'm still trying to work out who I'll play my first game as, choices choices :)

The release is aimed to go out in the afternoon tomorrow, but hey its 2020 so I don't dare give you any exact times ;D
Given it's 2020, I predict it will be exactly on time, but coincide with a simultaneous worldwide uprising of teams of hidden dinosaurs that have been waiting for their moment to retake the planet :eek:

So what have we actually done? We have integrated little short video clips tied to alerts and such to help illustrate how to deal with them.
Nice - this is a great step :) I'm a big fan of making things more 'explained in-game' - while the Wiki is great (where it's updated/done) and the people that maintain it deserve all the love and affection Paradox can give them, explaining the game in the game is always a better option where possible.

- naval supremacy is now scaled to a percentage depending on enemy intel level instead of getting reduced to 0% at low intel
Ooooh, interesting :) I look forward to seeing how this plays out.

- new hat for error dog
I hope that (assuming Barbarossa covers the USSR - if it doesn't, adjust as appropriate - but it wouldn't be the craziest conclusion to draw from the name) Errordawg will get one of these for 1.11 :)

1602715597003.png


- add the modifiers navy_leader_start_level, navy_leader_start_attack_level, navy_leader_start_defense_level, navy_leader_start_maneuvering_level, navy_leader_start_coordination_level to match the sames for army_leader.
Many thanks - this is super-helpful :)

- Added support for nesting localization strings, i.e. use a localization key within another localization string, enabling strings like "Unlock $nukes$ in the $technology$ screen" where 'nukes' and 'technology' are localization keys.
Ooooh - this is also super-helpful - the modding updates are always amongst my favourite parts of each patch log :)

- Added support for dollar signs in localization strings. Normally a dollar sign denotes the start or end of a variable. With this change "$$" will produce a single dollar sign in the resulting string.
And here we see Paradox caving to the almight dollar, who clearly must have been offended at not being able to go into localisation strings :p

- added add_victory_points/set_victory_points effects
This is very interesting - it's not really something I'd necessarily do a lot with, but the potential for interesting things is huge. Imagine with the "move factories to the Urals" NF (or whatever it is for the Soviets - going from memory, and haven't actually played them in a while) it also shifted the 'weight of Victory Points' beyond the Urals as well?

France - Algérie
Very easy to do a naval pic for this week's DD! So much choice..... Here's a shot of Algérie visiting Venice in 1935, from Jordan and Moulin's excellent French Cruisers 1922-1956

This is awesome! I think I even made a review, that Death Or Dishonour feels really empty looking at the spanish DLC. I am so happy you going back to older Focus trees and giving them a rework. <3 Hopefully Czechs and Hungars will get some love later too. Romania Campaign tomorrow, Hype.

Has the chance of Germany picking oppose Hitler on non-historical been increased.
They're probably gonna hold off until Italy and the USSR are updated. Just imagine: Kaiser vs Trotsky!

View attachment 641232

When we stopped selling the Colonel Edition and moved most of the cosmetics there to new armor packs instead we had nowhere to put our Heavy Cruiser pack and we figured it would just be a nice thing to give it away to everyone for this update - so thats what we did! It will now be baked in. The pack contains the following ships 3d models :
France - Algérie
USA - Baltimore
UK - Exeter
Soviet - Kirov
Japan - Mogami
German - Prinz Eugen
Italy - Trieste Class

Onboarding Experiments
Hearts of Iron is not a game known for how easy it is for new players to get into it... and that is probably not going to change ;D But we do feel like we could do a lot better job at helping new players out here. We have a lot of ideas around improving the pretty basic tutorial, more context help and helping you see changes in patches and such that we dream of doing, but much of this is still in some far away potential future. Right now though we have gotten help from our awesome experiment group at Paradox Arctic in testing some stuff on you all. Well some of you at least...

See we are doing this as a test to compare how the changes affect new players so the system will automatically enable it only for certain people next week, so do not worry if you see stuff your friends aren't or the other way around.

So what have we actually done? We have integrated little short video clips tied to alerts and such to help illustrate how to deal with them. These are also accessible from the ingame menu for browsing. Do note that this is not some full coverage of features yet, but we hope it will be enough to see if there is any impact on new player behaviors and if it works out there is a good chance we will record and add more in the future if we roll it out for everyone.

Here are some pictures of how it looks:

So see you all tomorrow for the release and for some followup diary the week after :) Oh and because you will ask. The release is aimed to go out in the afternoon tomorrow, but hey its 2020 so I don't dare give you any exact times ;D
Well, that was a very underwhelming changelog....

Fixed operative being stuck on rescue mission when there are no operative left to rescue
Can we also get a solution to captured operatives that get lost forever, because the country holding them surrenders before they get freed? Or is this already part of the fix?
