This mod adds Historical National Focus Dates to the Game.

1. IntroductionExamples: because Pearl Harbor happen in december, because the “Military Traing Act” happen before the “Home Defence”, and concerning many other historical national focuses in HOI4 that happen at a wrong time, there is a solution: Historical National Focus Dates.

This mod aims to only improve AI’s choices order for more historicity concerning dates. National focuses have been reorganized and focus trees reworked when necessary. It doesn’t change the duration of national focuses and doesn’t change the AI’s adaptability. The effects have not been changed except in some rare cases. The non-historical focus way has not be changed. All changes will be indicated in the LIST OF CHANGES in the discussion below.
The timeline now matches history a lot closer:

AIMED FOR A 1936 START WITH HISTORICAL NATIONAL FOCUSES ON! This mod will not work properly if historical focuses are set OFF: it would cause several unknown problems.
! A 1936 start is heavily recommended if you want to enjoy this mod fully.

2. Mod’s main changesAll DLC are requiered (mod built on new or reworked focus trees)

– Federal Housing Act (1 september 1937), Agricultural Adjustment Act (enacted 16 february 1938), and Fair Labor Standards Act (1938) have been swapped.
AI will not make Fair Labor Standards Act before early 1939 due to vanilla effects of Agricultural Adjustment Act.

– Arsenal of Democracy (29 december 1940) and The Giant Wakes have been swapped (now available at 25% war support, rather than 30%)

*AI will delay it 70days after if not enough representatives support.

– Louisiana Maneuvers: closer to the real historical date (august-september 1941)

– “War plan Yellow” and “Defense of the Pacific” have been swapped: the USA now build coastal forts on its islands consequently to Japan agression, and not when the war is near the end (in vanilla, USA could build forts on the islands even if Japan had already conquered them).
