Hello everybody. Once again, I have decided to write another AAR. Originally I was going to write a HOI3 AAR as Canada, but HOI3 runs like a turtle on my system, and I also love HOI2 ARMA already, so I decided to stick with it.
This time, I will play as the United States of America in the excellent Kaiserreich mod for HOI2 Armageddon. The latest version of KR is much better than previous ones, and I thought it would be fun to do something other than the original WW2.
Anyway, now on to the settings.
Hoi2 Arma v1.3 beta 2 with Kaiserreich mod v 1.0
Difficulty/Aggression: Normal/Furious (note that I will ramp up the difficulty as the game progresses)
IC takeover: off
techteam takeover: off
Cheats:I will play most of the game with Nofog on, but will switch it off probably when the civil war starts, or when I go to war with some other nations. I mostly want to have nofog on so I can see if the AI is doing something stupid.
Modifications: I have modded some events for the CSA, AUS, and PSA to give them more troops, I also modified some events for the CNT-FAI faction in Spain to give them a lot more units once Spain descends into Civil war.
I have also modified the AI's of some countries, to give them better research and building priorities. Usually the AI will just build infantry and aircraft, but now you should hopefully see many of the worlds major powers building lots of armoured, motorized, mechanized, and commando divisions, as well as balanced airforces and navies.
I also modified some of the starting OOB's for Germany, Canada, Japan, and Britain. Britain's, garrisons have been replaced with regular infantry, as well as Canada's militias. The German and British navies also have more up to date battleships, instead of some of the great war era tin cans they already had before. Japan's aircraft carriers have also been upgraded to more modern versions.
Other than that, I have added lots of new icons, sprites, and other graphics.
Anyway, with that housekeeping out of the way, lets get started.
