This mod adds Expanded Start Dates to the Game.

Have you ever felt that there weren’t enough start dates? That the game becomes too easy with all the buildup, or you simply just wanted to get thrown into the war? If so, this is a perfect mod to satisfy all your needs!

Expanded Start Dates is a mod that adds more start dates without a ton of new features. Currently there is only one added start date/Scenario, which is 1941. Due to this mod only being made by one person, and over the span of several months, you should not expect another start date being added in the coming weeks/months.

Since this mod only adds more start dates (nothing else) it should therefore be compatible with most mods.

Current start dates:
1 January 1936:The Gathering Storm
14 August 1939: Blitzkrieg
22 June, 1941: Operation Barbarossa

To be added:
February 1943: The Tide Has Turned
June 1944: D-Day
January 1945: Downfall

Q: You should add this or that startdate!
A: All of the currenty planned start dates are listed in the description above. I will also not add any start date below 1933 as that would mean changing too much and the countries would all have a ton of divisions at the start of 1939. I will of course listen to your suggestions!

Q: The borders are all wrong, why don’t you fix them?
A: I am aware of that and currently working on it.
