/vx/ is a pretty underused board in general as far as I can tell, save for the RPG threads.

Not really into strategy games myself but i would not be surprised if a number of posters here actually own this game.

Lets break this down, shall we?
>Why is the HOI4 mod community so full of fags and weirdos and pozzed commie mods?
This question makes a variety pf assumptions.
1. That anyone ITT follows the HOI4 community sufficient to
A. Reach the same conclusions about the mod community, and
B. Speak to it authoritatively.
Given that with the exception of OP recently indicating that the server is inactive, coupled with the fact that the thread was dead for 5 years prior, a reasonable person could assume that that detailed assumption is 'No'.
>What mods let you destroy commie countries, but don't demonize fascism?
This is a rather specific question, again directed at a 5 year dead thread, alluding to the fact that /mlpol/ is a rather backward place to ask such a question while expecting a legitimate answer.
The reality is, if you actually wanted the information you are making gestures to appear to desire, you would put them in a search engine, watch various summary videos, and perhaps peruse some FAQs and strategy guides.
But you're not doing any of that; you're coming here with rather specific questions and expecting to be catered to. It doesnt matter if you post ITT or a new one, if you ask lazy, stupid, and disingenuous questions, you will be responded to in kind.

You told me while you felt like using negative descriptors but that doesn't make it valid. Anyone can make excuses for the way they act.
A simple question like "Why is x community or hobby full of libtards" would make a normal person say something like "Because fantasizing about other worlds and 'better' histories where their ideology created utopias and 'worse' histories where their hated enemies took over but were eventually overthrown by commie empires naturally appeals to the leftists, as they cannot function in reality. We all have jobs and lives to get back to, but the enemy does not". But you attacked every point you could think of, because you felt like it.
You might think you're doing me a favour by telling me what you don't like about my posts, but you contrive some excuse to be outraged no matter what I say, so I don't respect you or your opinions on any of my posts. You're like this because it's fun for you to pretend you're the teacher here and I'm the student.

The thread isn't "dead", and you could just answer the question or fuck off.
As per rule 11, you're supposed to check the catalog before making new threads, so this is appropriate behavior.
>>163074
The HoI fandom attracts fags of all kinds, especially those with fringe politics. Being openly commie isn't illegal in as many places as being openly fascist, so as result there are more commies.

I've seen my share of HoI fags, especially on pony communities. A lot of EaW communities are straight communists, although I guess a lot of the developers are too.
Not all that fond of EaW overall, but Rosa is top waifu.

I tried EaW as the Crystal Empire on Equestria's side, barely survived the bug and evil deer vs ponies war until Celestia won it for me, I was surprised when commies joined my side to fight the bugs, then I got bored once it was over and quit the game.

Changelings have not-so-subtle references to the Third Reich in EaW, so I guess the commies might be algorithmically predisposed to join the fray against them.

Since you keep asking, I’ll tell you to put your mind at rest. The mod isn’t updated to the current version of Equestria at War mod, which makes it subject to crashes. Not every game will crash, but it will sometimes make a check that can’t complete correctly and the game will simply give up. As for the mod, it was a replacement mod primarily for the leader of the Duke back when he was the only option, so the tree will revert to how it was in that version.

Other than also adding Aryanne as a general, the other changes to the game still apply, which ruin the experience of playing fascist new Mareland, blocking early wars and building factions. Equestria at War itself is not really fun to play anymore without someone making a mod to revert some of the insane changes hat have accumulated over the years.

Fascists used to be able to launch a war whenever they wanted to by justification, but the devs now have a world tension limit of 20%, meaning you can’t launch early wars. This makes the game very scripted and no longer free to be altered outside the focus trees, which are also limited.

They altered the ability for a nation to gain support for a political party, limiting it to focus tree buffs and spy networks. Now there is no cabinet position to gain party support and alter your government. This locks in certain nations like the dragonlands to permanently be the government type they are as the generic focus tree now locks the political support behind having the political party as the majority that you go down. No more strange alternatives you can go down.

This is also a major problem when trying to rush the party change in new Mareland. Now you can’t become fascist quick enough to go down the tree in time to build a sufficiently large presence to fight the later wars they force you down with the world tension. This issues have ruined the game for me. Maybe sometime I will go through the code to undo all this shit because to me it is now unplayable.

These changes sound extremely gay.
Was their goal to make each playthrough of the game more set-in-stone?
What, did they get mad that in some playthroughs, nations didn't act how they were "supposed to" and failed to support the "Everyone teams up against nazis and then an army of the undead so the victors have something to do afterwards" story they had in mind?

Wow, that's homosexual, I was hoping they would have a more interesting reason than that. Thanks for telling me.
How could those clowns fuck their game up like that? I can understand a desire to limit or prevent early game wars but I hate the way they went about it. And locking ideologies in like that is inexcusable. Unexpected chaos can make for a more interesting story.
HOI4 isn't just a vehicle for a story, these kinds of games are tools to write your own stories on the canvas of their world and history. If I pick an ideology the authors hate I shouldn't be left with a focus tree full of inefficient cartoon supervillainy. What the hell happened to the concept of player choice?

I want to help with the mod to unfuck the changes but I know nothing of HOI4 modding and I'm busy with the Fakemon game.

It likely stems from the massive OC scene and the continued script they make for the lore of their alternate world that the game takes place in. It seems many choices in some nations are fully locked out and you can only unlock them by selecting the options in the pop-up story lines that fire at certain times. On the surface, this is fine, especially at the beginning of the game for immersion, but as it goes, you can't easily predict what will occur with each choice, so you need to save to reload in case you didn't roleplay correctly for the tree you want.

A few things

First of all, Equestria at War has had a "game rules" feature in the menu that allows you to modifiy the starting conditions of a game. It's had this feature for two years now. Don't like the 20% world tension requirement? Change the game rule to make war goals free so you can justify war goals with 0% tension. Don't like the ban on making factions? Change the game rules. Want to be able to change governments more easily? Change the game rules. Just click a few buttons before starting the game. I used to change the rules every single game because I did not like the elimination of free guarantees of nations. Now, I play mostly with no changed game rules.

Second, if you don't bother to change the game rules, it really doesn't matter that much because it's fine as it is. Yes, the 20% world tension requirement to declare war dramatically limits early wars, with the game generally taking until late 1009 or even until 1010 to reach 20% tension when historical events are on, eliminating a year or so of war. But the tech tree goes on until 1020 or even later. There's plenty of time to go to war against everybody. Also, so many nations and so many focus trees have war goals that war won't be in short supply anyways.

>Change of governments
Almost every nation on the entire planet has at least two ideological paths. Almost every nation can go fascist or harmonist or communist. You don't need a generic focus tree because almost all nations have several specialized focus trees. Also, most nations have possible advisors to boost ideologies. Most nations have the ability to form factions through focuses. There are literally probably four times as many nations in EAW that have focus trees to change to multiple ideologies with war goals and faction building as there are in the base game. You have to pretty much look for a boring nation in order to find one. If you are playing a nation with a generic focus tree, stop playing it and go play one of the three dozen nations - 85% of all nations - that have focus trees.

>This is also a major problem when trying to rush the party change in new Mareland. Now you can’t become fascist quick enough to go down the tree in time to build a sufficiently large presence to fight the later wars they force you down with the world tension.
I don't understand this complaint at all. New Mareland, in the current set up, can achieve a fascist government by around about August of the second year. It has always been this way, and it has never been otherwise. It takes even less time if you have historical events turned off and you get a war in Equestria that causes early independence. Again, it has never not been this way, except that now events like the Equestrian civil war actually happen sometimes whereas they did not before. Also, New Mareland is perfectly capable of arming in time to meet any challenge. It's difficult to defeat Beakolini's Wingbardy on Historical focuses, to be sure, but it's very far from impossible.

>What, did they get mad that in some playthroughs, nations didn't act how they were "supposed to" and failed to support the "Everyone teams up against nazis and then an army of the undead so the victors have something to do afterwards" story they had in mind?
What the hell does this even mean? Are you even aware of the "historical focuses" check when you load a game? The entire point of turning historical events off is that things don't occur as they are """""supposed""""" to. Second, there are no "nazis." Yes, the Changeling Lands focus tree has references to Nazis. Yes, the Changeling Lands have the military equipment of the Nazis from Hearts of Iron 4. The fact remains that changelings are not Nazis. Changelings have their own powers, their own history, their own ideology, and their own identity separate from the Nazi Germans. They have their own mechanic in the game to extract love from the captured population. They have Chrysalis, an their own reactions to events. Sure, they drive panzers and use MP40s, but it's no deeper than an aesthetic. Also, nations don't team up to attack them. The Changeling Lands will invade two nations prior to attacking Equestria, and will then attack Equestria and the Crystal Empire and any vassals or successor states. Later, Stalliongrad will join them. That's it. There are several nations on that continent that will not join the war at all, like Yakyakistan, Nova Griffonia, the Penguins and the Dragon Lands. And no one in Griffonia will join... Except New Mareland if it isn't independent. There are many, many wars that go on outside of this conflict.

Are you actually arguing not to play the game in the way I want to play it because they fucked up the generic tree? It is their own fault for having nations playable with fucked up generic trees. Just don't let the player select the nation. They have the ability to add and subtract land since I have been playing the game since the mod had only one landmass. This is a non-argument.

As for early war, this is drastically important for some nations to make the headway to face against the coming focus tree scripted wars that will be declared, such as Wingbardy against New Mareland. Those with extreme skill can probably win with their eyes closed, but I am not that way. I need the ability as a total dictator to declare war whenever I please to beat the clock and have an army to defeat the enemy.

>always been this way
Negative. I used to rush several months early by using the political cabinet member to boost fascism while giving equestria supplies, generating the needed independence from being a puppet with the old system.

>it's difficult but not impossible
Correct, but it used to have an easier option for players that utilized early war. Now I am out of my league to play as that nation. I don't find it fun anymore. If you do, great, but this doesn't solve the problem I have.

>you have to be looking for a boring nation
Yeah. I like the smaller nations because the fight to claw your way up bigger and more impressive to rival super powers is more fun for me than massive armies clashing. Now picture me choosing Pònaidhean, which has no option to move into any political ideology than Harmony. Guess I'm playing wrong still though and I am not supposed to pick the nation with a unique tree and is selectable.

The point being is that it used to be different and the changes fucked so many things I enjoyed about the experience. If they are changes you enjoy, fine. I literally don't give a shit though because it doesn't help me. I have been with the project for a while and it just isn't what I used to play. I can actually play the base game as any south american nation more effectively than any nation in this game that I desire to pick because of how they have changed the systems.

I am a causal. I get that if I spent time learning meta and all of these ways to beat the AI in ways that the game devs didn't plan for I could do well against any force. But I don't want to do that. I just want to have the experience I had before where I made pony nation bigger by doing it my way. The freedom the game had let me do it my way. That isn't an option now.
