[MOD] Cold War Enhanced (1.3.2)

#1 Post by Viper151 » Jul 03 2018

Current Version 1.3.2 (6/6/2020)

Description:
Cold War Enhanced

This mod was designed to fix many problems that our MP group encountered in the Cold War sandbox. After some grievance among us I decided to fix these issues. Eventually this mod became a completely new scenario that overhauled the entire cold war. Changes are in the multi-hundreds.

There are 250+ custom events, and 750+ of edited events.

Website: HERE
Join our Discord: HERE
Send a suggestion: HERE

Scenarios:
CWE: Standard (No starting units with new unit alterations.)
CWE with Units: Above with starting units.
CWE Classic: Standard Classic (No starting units with NO unit alterations (vanilla units))
CWE Classic with Units: Above with starting units.

Why are there scenarios with and without units?
This is done to simplify the game saves and help reduce file sizes on saves. Optimized for no units multiplayer starts.(Faster load).

Key Features:
Korean War:
  • Whichever Korea wins wins, will have other Korea loyalty changed to it.
  • Korea border set to 38th parallel and loyalties.
Indochina Wars:
  • Whichever Vietnam wins wins, will have other Vietnam loyalty changed to it.
  • North Vietnam will change its capital to Hanoi.
  • Laos and Cambodia gain independence in 1954 with relations and political outcomes based on First Indochina war.
    ***WIP*** Second Indochina War (Vietnam War) 1955-1975
German Reunification War:
  • Whichever Germany captures the other will have its loyalty changed to it.
  • If Saarland still exist, it will be given to victor.
Historical Political Unions:
  • USSR is one country with loyalty.
  • China starts with Tibet province with its loyalty.
  • China starts with Xinjiang province with its loyalty.
  • China now starts at war with Taiwan with the option to create a ceasefire or continue war and unite China.
  • Spanish Morocco, Mali Federation, and several other countries have been fixed.
Custom Map:
  • Included missing islands from WW2 scenarios.
  • Included balanced rubber. (more spots in geographic areas, and more countries with starting plantations)
  • Sea oil spots
  • Many fixes.
Proper Decolonization in Africa and World:
  • Oh boy this took FOREVER to fix.
New Flags:
  • Iraq flags 1921-Present.
  • Belgian Congo.
  • Mali Federation.
  • Sudan Colonial and First independent flag.
  • General flag corrections.
So many other little fixes here and there see forum for change log.

Please direct all suggestions to HERE or the appropriate topic in the workshop discussion.

Whiten this month(Hopefully). There is still some testing that needs to be done.
If you would like an older distribution I can look around to see what I got.

I've been very busy the past few months I plan to get it finished in May.
The mod itself is almost done however a game extender/wrapper is necessary to accommodate all functions of the mod. (colonies playable)
Perhaps I'll release a lightweight version soon.

Thank you for you patience, I hope you understand.

Welcome :-)
First thank you for putting this mode, which is one of the best modes currently in the game :) ;)
I have some requests and I hope to fulfill them
It consists in fixing the names and pictures of the heads of third world countries in the game
Especially Arab heads of state
And I can help in the names of presidents
And their images and the way they reach power
Except through a revolution, a military coup, or a democratic way etc...
As you know, the Cold War is a historic era in the world
Therefore, it is necessary to mention historical events, at least to increase the realism of the game
My second request is also to change the flags of the countries automatically
For example, the monarchy of Egypt after the overthrow of the king became a republic and the Egyptian President Gamal Abdel Nasser then changed the shape and color of the flag , The same is true for both Iraq and Syria After the revolutions and coups of the new presidents, they changed the color and shape of the flag.
There are several other things that should be included in the upcoming updates for this mod
For example, in Iraq after the revolution and the overthrow of the monarchy
There have been several military coups that brought several military leaders or politicians to power. Then came the last coup that brought President Saddam Hussein to power.
The same is true in Syria
The same is true in Libya
Generally thank you for your mighty efforts,And on this special mode.
I hope you will take my demands into consideration in any future updates to the mod
And I'm ready to help In the names and pictures of the heads of third world countries, And the way they reach power
