The Broken Star
The Broken Star is a mod I've created. It starts in October 1990, when Eastern and Western Germany was unified, marking the last years of the Soviet Union. From this event, Soviet Union slowly collapses - or reincarnates. Currently there is only one scenario, the 1990 one, but when it's ready, I intend to do an earlier (198x, maybe) and a later version (similar to MDS, starting from 200x). The scenarios run until 9999, December 31. So it has no time limit, which gives you the chance to run any scenario you want (without needing to worry "Now I have less time"). Killerrabbit allowed me to use events, flags and other material from his Modern Day Scenario II mod for HoI2.
This timeline should be very interesting to play, since there are many ahistorical possibilities in addition to the historical ones: What if Yugoslavia never broke, What if the Soviet Union forced Germany back to the Warsaw Pact, what if the European Union was never born?
Rough map of Europe. I haven't touched Africa yet, and therefore it still has some colonial provinces. I'm also not 100% sure about the Soviet-Polish border, but I think it's approximately right (maybe 1-3 provinces wrong).
I also changed Germany's color to the same it is in MDS, because it was a new Germany, who doesn't deserve a Gray, WW2 Germany's color.
Here are the military alliances:
EU starts as empty, since the game will later feature events that allow certain nations like France or Germany to either stay in NATO or join the EU (too bad AoD doesn't allow nation in multiple alliances).
I've also done two ministers for testing purposes (more to come later): Mikhail Gorbachev and Mauno Koivisto. Here's Gorbachev:
Crappy JPEG compression.
Okay, so right now I need volunteers, who either provide some information or mod certain things (like a specific nation's file, then posts it to me).
WHAT YOU CAN DO TO HELP:
- National descriptions
Tuore - Mod Leader, overall modding
guy_montag - tech teams, events and ministers, specifically for Italy
Haru Yo Koi - China-related information
kiahoga - Event suggestions
Sintetik - Russia-related
RedPhalanx - Election events
