I'm currently waiting for a mod that replaces the toy soldiers doing push-ups with counters.

Wait, there is no option for NATO tactical icons instead of 3d-models?

Well I managed to create the Kiwi Empire by shifting the New Zealand to facsist then plotting a coup in Australia for them to become the Empire of Platypus and join me in my crusade against heresy...

There are, but it appears that they only show up when you zoom out, and may appear over the 3-D models. I haven't figured out how to turn the 3-D models off.

Overall, I think the game has a solid start. I cannot wait for the mods to start coming for this as it looks like the Devs gave the keys to the kingdom to the modders. HOI3 had some really good ones and it seems some of them will be done for HOI 4 as well.

I'm hoping HOI IV gets a discount so I can finally buy it. :lol:

Nato counters are in and the option to turn off 3D-models was added shortly before relase, because people asked for it

If you want to play MP sessions I´ve to admit that HoI IV is probably better due to being less "rail-roaded".


Edit: Is it true that you cant sell specific resources, but only a percentage of all your resources?

We should just play Axis and Allies the board game instead since it predates HOI.

There is one on steam, and I use it (I definitely recommend the "more NATO counters" mod to go with it btw).

Don't own HOI IV yet, still I have been watching my fair share of playtroughts on youtube.

Thing is if you ticked the historical option, France's AI is programmed to fold at first contact. So don't expect the AI to hold on and fight. It's like asking for AI Byzantium or the Teutonic/Livonian Orders to survive in EU IV.

So untick that option, that's the only solution I can see so far.
