Hey everyone! Chewy here. I'm super stoked up to tell you about this year's EU4 Modathon! The Modathon we had last August was a ton of fun and we hope to extend the chance to participate in this one to any and all who may be interested!

Join the Discord for any and all information past this post, we'd love to answer your questions in there! -> https://discord.gg/TaDEyzBSZH

The Modathon sign-ups are live right now, as of on Monday, January 29, 2024 8:00 AM (CST, your local times are calculated in the Discord), and will run until Monday, February 5, 2024 8:00 AM (CST). In that period we will have a Google form posted in the Discord's announcements chat, where you can sign yourself, as well as your team up. Only one sign-up form is required per team, so you guys can designate your team messenger/leader for the form.We encourage teams of 3-5 to register. We saw last Modathon that that is a nice number to spread out work while also having enough people for creative input! We strongly encourage avoiding solo signups as it goes against the spirit of the Modathon, where cooperation and community is key! Modding will go from Monday, February 5, 2024 10:00 AM (CST) through Monday, February 19, 2024 10:00 AM (CST), with playtesting and polish from Monday, February 19, 2024 10:00 AM through Thursday, February 22, 2024 10:00 AM, and streams Friday the 23rd and Saturday the 24th for interviews

Possible signups categories include:
  • Alt History and Fantasy
  • Graphics, Interface, Sound
  • Country Flavor
  • Region Flavor
  • General Mechanics
  • Sub-mods
  • Organizers Choice
For any clarification or guidance on what your proposed project's category would be, feel free to contact an Organizer in the Discord!

While prior experience in modding EU4 is advantageous, it is by no means a prerequisite. Our Discord community is teeming with seasoned modders, eager to mentor newcomers and guide them through their modding journey. If you're keen to participate but haven't formed a team yet, rest assured that our Discord has channels that are dedicated to helping you find like-minded teammates.
If you are looking to pick up team members for your project or join a team in search of members, check ⁠find-a-team!

Once the sign-up phase concludes, the competition will kick off, and participating teams will have a 2-week window allotted for modding, followed by a week of playtesting (with Discord community members encouraged to help their favorite teams and provide valuable feedback). Following the conclusion of modding and playtesting, voting will commence to select winners and runners-up in each mod category (all categories are listed in our Discord). In addition, we'll present a few "overall" awards to recognize outstanding achievements!

On top of the award badges for the workshop, we have PRIZES for those outstanding mods that win the vote!Overall winning team members will EACH receive an EU4 themed Displate, courtesy of Paradox! (check them out here -> https://t.co/7rpWbpJV9l)
Overall runner-up team members will each receive a King of Kings key that they can use or give to a friend, also courtesy of Paradox!And EACH CATEGORIES winning mod will be included as part of a Modathon 2024 "Mega mod spotlight," with each mod receiving a dedicated portion of, on the Paradox Forums that will be promoted on the EU4 launcher, getting your mod in front of potentially tens of thousands of different players' eyes!

On February 23rd and 24th, I, Chewy, will be streaming for all to join, showcasing the projects, interviewing team members, and much more!
Join us for special guest appearances, discussions with renowned mod creators, and collaborative exploration of mods with other content creators.Throughout the 2-week modding period, you can expect live updates on various projects within the competition on the Modathon Twitter. Be sure to follow us for the latest developments:https://twitter.com/eu4modathon

Let's make the 2024 EU4 Modathon an unforgettable celebration of creativity, collaboration, and fun!
