The Official HOI4 Mods and Discussion Thread

The three candidates for the brazilian presidency in 1939, five year turn, no reelection

Francisco Prestes Maia, liberal
Assuming you create a new constitution, the old figures of the brazilian liberal scene go to a new party called "Republicano" while the new liberal party is called "Democrata livre"
We choosed him because he was a influent figure, praised even by french architects and had planned cities all over Brazil, not only in São Paulo, his home state
In 1944 the runner for his party is José Maria Whitaker, who is a older figure but still a free market liberal


For the republicans we got Goés Monteiro (his government is different here from the warlord Goés Monteiro)
He runs as a compromise candidate for the republicano party, who is the party of the old oligarchies (he's classified as a Right Wing authoritarian)
Who do most of the work on the government is his second in command, Antonio Carlos de Andrada IV, who led Brazil from 1930-34 on this scenario
Goés basically keep the military pacified and profit from his position, however I must say that Andrada is getting very old
By 1944 the base of support for the old oligarchs will be decadent regardless of the election results in 1939, and thus they will break into two parties


Then we got Getúlio Vargas, for Labour
Getulio Vargas here is like Wang Jingwei or Edward VIII on Kaiserreich, it's in theory the same person as OTL, but the butterflies are massive
Basically he had quit politics in 1914 OTL due a feud with the dict-I mean, governor of his home state, Borges de Medeiros, and returned after WWI. On Red Flood with the collapse of the major powers due the war attrition, he attempt to increase his small family farm cattle production to get a bit of profit from their increasing demand for food, and actually goes well. On the following years he stays out of politics and create a massive cattle empire, to the point that he is nicknamed "Baron" Vargas. By the time of the election, the newly created labour party (that is a sham copy of the british labour party, but in general is composed of opportunists, populists and outsiders invite him to run for them, he accepts because it would look nice on his biography and there is little chance of the Labour winning just after a left wing revolution. Assuming he wins, he will do policies similar to what he did OTL, everything worded on a way that makes very cleary that he is doing such things because "hey it works".
In 1944 the runner for the Labour party is one of his political allies, Oswaldo Aranha.
 

The pajama revolution agianst the old republic on Red Flood, a gift from 77egg, a brazilian marches channel ^_^

Before you ask, yes, the guy pushing the revolutionaries from the north is Cãndido Rondon, and he eventually gets stuck there if you go into the warlord way
 
Ah yea, let's attack someone who's not here. that'll definitely work
The whole bigot thing is honestly laughable, just because I don't support legalizing LGBT marriage doesn't make me into a bigot, I've never discriminated against anyone regardless of their sexuality, race or origin.
However, I have the full right to hold a conservative position on social matters.

So please, stop attacking me left and right, you have the full right to criticize my views and that's fine I don't mind that, but actively attacking, doxxing and harassing me won't achieve anything but make you look bad
Apologies for my flippant comment. Perhaps I have been left astray by some screen capture witch authenciticity I have have not have no way to confirm.
 
Hopefully TNO, TWR, Red World reboot, TL191, maybe CBTS as much as it displeases me all coming out in a quick space of time puts to rest once and for all about HOI4 projects being vaporware not going anywhere.
 
So I had this idea of giving Hearts of Iron a "Fictionalization" treatment, in which real people are replaced by Fictional Leaders. I have several things planned out. Major powers first.


Germany
Germany is more powerful here, being able to cover multiple fields of research. their occult Thule Society can obtain the Holy Ark of the Covenant and/or the Holy Grail. They can send teams to forgotten lands to obtain Dinosaur DNA. Create Vampires, Zombies, and Robots through research. Have the possibility of creating the Atomic Bomb first(albeit by 1944), can summon the Norse Gods if enough sacrifices are performed and likely others. They are also close to creating metahumans such as Albrecht Krieger and the Uber program. On the other side, Adenoid Hynkel will have several internal conflicts, from Abraham Simpson possibly killing him by complete accident at the 1936 Berlin-Metropolis games, to assassination plots from Operation: Valkyrie, the Inglorious Basterds, and a coup attempt to replace him with a jewish barber. Should his incompetence be put on display, the Nazi Party is thinking of replacing him with Herr Vandal Savage. Germany also has powerful allies in addition to the Axis such as the Draka in Africa, and the wizards under the command of Gilbert Grindelwald. Should the party fall, there may be a chance for Hynkel to return as an attempt to clone him is underway. He also has plans to flee to South America.

Soviet Union
The Soviet Union came about as a result of the Russian Revolution, which saw the death of the Tsar and his entire family, with the exception of a young girl named Anastasia, who may return should the Union be overthrown. The revolution was led by Pasha Antipov, until his ally, the Wizard Rasputin betrayed and cursed him into a deep slumber. It may be possible to awaken Antipov. After his curse, a power struggle occurred between his potential successors, Ostap Bender and Josef Besstrashnyy, who assumed power and declared himself, Fearless Leader. Fearless Leader has some internal difficulty. In Moscow there are multicolored blocks that fall from the sky. Still he may see some success and has organized several secret projects like the Black Widow Program and the Russian Sleep Experiment.

How come the Red Skull isn't a Nazi?
 
How come the Red Skull isn't a Nazi?
He's under his real name Johann Schmidt. The plan for him is he'd likely split away from the Nazis(as he does in the First Avenger), especially if Hitler is killed. By contrast Willhelm Strasse from Wolfenstein will continue to fight after the end of the war( A nod to the Novel the Man with the Iron Heart in which Heydritch does the same) but remains loyal to the Nazis.
 
Been thinking of doing a HOI4 mod with
a) An alternate Russian Civil War
or
b) A US civil was in the 1930s, without New Afrika
Which sounds better?
 
I have been brainstorming an ATL which I think would work great in HOI4, unfortunately I have no modding capability.

It would be what if Hitler led Austria and not Germany. The in-lore reason would be that when he was signing up for the German Army they discovered he was Austrian, which would disqualify him. He then joins the Austro-Hungarian Army, specifically the German Landwehr, and fights on the Eastern Front. After the war he joins a far-right win olitical coalition, but they kicked him out due to his radical policies but he creates his own party, the Austrian Social Nationalist People's Party (Österreichische Sozialnationalistische Volkspartei, OSNVP or Sozinat for short). They come to power in a coalition government with Dollfuss' Fatherland Front in 1934, but Hitler quickly has Dollfuss killed by a deranged Communist, and assumes total control by early 1935. So by the time HOI4 starts Hitler has been the Staatführer. Their symbol is a red cross potent (a Kruckenkreuz) in a white circle upon a black field.

The National State of Austria begins to grow, annexing Bavaria in 1937 (Bavaria broke away from Germany in this timeline due to a German Civil War in 1936), the Sudetenland, in 1937, while bringing Czechia in as a Protectorate, and Hungary in 1939. The annexation of Bavaria was more of a union, with Bavaria joining Austria to prevent being taken over by the Hohenzollern Protestant Germany.

Germany restores the Hohenzollerns to the throne in 1936, due to a coalition between the center-left and center-right, spearheaded by the SDP and DNVP.
The German Civil War is fought between the SPD/DNVP vs KPD vs various fascist movements, fought between 1936-1938. Germany later joins the Entente to fight Austria.

WW2 lasts from 1941-1945, the Axis Powers big three are Italy, Poland and Austria.

The DNVP weren’t ever centre-right- they were proto-fascist and hated the SPD and the Weimar Republic. Also IIRC this was an actual mod.
Thirdly, Hitler hated Austria, and was too pan-Germanic for the Austrofascists. That however is a minor inconvenience since he was also an opportunist.
