Pplmm proudly presents his brand new version of Pplmm's add-on for the WERS mod !

What does "WERS" stand for ? Roughly speaking, it is a mod that take you to the early 1920s, when the fledgeling Central European states did their best to stave off the Bolshevik menace*.
The add-on I have prepared provides you with the very chance to experience the atmosphere of that turbulent time even more, as it has been adjusted for the new E3 Map. Furthermore, a number of new events have been added (some of them reflecting the plebiscites in Upper Silesia or peace talks between the combating states, to mention just a few) to make you enjoy every minute of your gameplay with such countries as Poland, Soviet Union, Germany, White Russia, Western and Central Ukraine, Makhno's Anarchist Republic, Belarus, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Greater Poland, Romania, the Free City of Danzig or (last but not least) Central Lithuania.
*Please visit these (I, II) websites to get to know more about the project.

How to install:
  • Download HoI_II_WERS_0.81pnk__map_.rar (including the E3 Map, so it doesn't matter whether you have installed the E3 Mod beforehand)
  • Unpack it into the main directory of the game.
  • Create a shortcut on the desktop (edit the 'target' field to look like this: "C:\'MAIN DIRECTORY OF YOUR HOI GAME'\HoI2.exe mod-WERS").
  • Don't forget to patch the mod (this file will be updated successfully, the latest one has been released on October 30, 2009. Please unpack it to the main directory of the game).
  • Don't hesitate to take advantage of the additional music pack, that contains all the songs that were the top music hits of that fascinating period.
Attention:
Please do report any bugs/mistakes you have noticed. Your contribution to the development of the project will be highly appreciated as you are the true 'betatesters' of the mod.
The next update will be presented to you when it is made, so don't get nervous ('bugfixes' should follow earlier). The rumour about the death of the mod will always be considerably exaggerated, that's for sure !

And that's how it looks like:

Is this add-on already included in E3 CORE2 mod or is it meant to instal it over this mod? There are no version limitations?

Andzs, could you possibly help me to understand (fully) the meaning of Latvian songs I have added to the game ? If you haven't downloaded the music pack yet, you can find them as well here (Es atnācu uguntiņu, Zibsnī zvaigznes aiz Daugavas).
As far as I am concerned, they have been written after the end of the Latvian-Bolshevik war, so maybe you are aware of other music pieces that were popular at the time ?
Furthermore, one or two events concerning the after-war period in Latvia should be added to the mod (can you pass any suggestions, they will be certainly of great use to me) ?

Actually You are digging deep, never saw this in any mods before, thanks for that
Usually I never listen to mods music pack, use my own mp3 instead, but most of these songs are coming from the ww1 Latvian regiments, will listen all songs included in Your pack, then will be clear answer of all songs origin

Of course, i have some suggestions for Baltics events, will try to make couple events in two weeks.

Hi! I've made some minister pics and added a couple of new ministers to URSS and Poland. If you like them, I can try to do some more.
I have used some of them in my latest patch. Please do continue your work, but don't forget to double check every new picture and provide me with the links to the websites where they have been published (of course you can cite other sources too).

BTW, the second patch has just been released.

I'm glad to see some of my work included. I created three more pics for Danzig ministers (easily found on Google), and that's all for now.

Why don't you try to change the WERS.eug file like this?

I have tried the mod. First all i can say great work! The mod has greatly improved since i last played it (Where it crashed once Poland received the first tanks).

Suggestions:
You should decide if this game should be a battle scenario only (Which i really don't hope is the case) or will it eventually expand to cover even more ground, which could become a full mod, not just a BS. The problem here is, the diplomacy screen, which is still available to use and can be thus greatly exploited:
-Make peace with white Russia and let them fight Ukraine for you
-You have a 10 percent chance to demand territory from white Russia even at -200 relations.
-You can peace nations out, just to stab them a second later.

Flaws:
-The event appears Vlasslov defects, which is a WW2 event.
-White Russia gains the event the Bolsheviks gain the overhand just to often.
-Those events in the red army where you gain 1 divisions with reserve is bugged (I have to resolve 4 strange events to get the same thing all over again)
-I gained plenty of events which have the word AI in them, is that supposed to be so?
-Germany dowed me at one point, is that supposed to be so (They peaced me out later via an event)?
-Germany allied Ukraine is that supposed to be so?
-In the AI of white Russia, they should never offer me peace and never accept it.

Prepositions:
-The reds should lose a lot of their claims as the whites
-I kinda miss this person in the whole thing: Pyotr Nikolayevich Wrangel (There could be some events surrounding him).

This mod could on the least expand to the following areas:
-Hungarian revolution and its war against the kingdom of SHS, Czechoslovakia and Romania.
-Greek/Turkish war
-The creation of the kingdom of SHS and events regarding the state of SHS, before its merge with the Kingdom of Serbia
-Caucasian states their wars and bids for freedom
-Siberian front
-The allied forces in Russia
