Latest Release: Kaiserreich – Railway of Freedom

Current KR version: 0.21.2, released 26/06/2022

Current HOI4 version supported: 1.11.5 open beta patch (The mod WILL crash if you play it on the release version!)

“What if Germany had won World War 1?”

As 1936 dawns, the Weltkrieg’s legacy lies heavy upon the shoulders of a new generation.

Germany stands astride the center of the world, a power without peer, but about its feet lie enemies both old and new; from France’s rising syndicalist Internationale, to the old Entente, to an unbroken Russia and an unrepentant rising sun. All the while Germany’s vast reach has left it dangerously overstretched, its allies in Constantinople and Vienna have grown estranged, and across the Atlantic the American colossus falters. Seventeen years have passed since the end of the war, and few expect the new year to bring a turning point, but soon a single spark may be all it takes to light the powder keg anew…

The Kaiserreich 4 Team are proud to present the most popular alternate history mod for Hearts of Iron II, Darkest Hour, and Hearts of Iron IV! Originally conceived by Sarmatia in 2005, Kaiserreich has since developed into one of the most in-depth alternate history mods, with thousands of unique events, graphics, countries and even mechanics! Rewrite history (again), but this time in Hearts of Iron IV!

  • An immersive alternative history scenario
  • A completely new political system including party popularity and ministers
  • A reworked map with new states and provinces
  • Ten different ideologies
  • Tens of thousands of new events that offer a wide range of different possibilities

Starting with HoI4 1.8, Paradox updated its official launcher, and unfortunately that’s caused a lot of issues for mod users. If you’re having trouble loading the mod, being told ‘descriptor file missing’ or that KR is out of date, chances are you need to troubleshoot your launcher. This is a good place to go for advice on what to do: link

v.0.18

Hello everyone, Alpinia here, and I'm proud to bring to you one of the largest updates to Kaiserreich so far - 0.18 'Forest Brothers'. The new reworked nations brought to you this time around are none other than Bhutan, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Wales and White Ruthenia. But of course, it doesn't stop there, with a whole host of literally hundreds of other additions, improvements and fixes, as detailed in the full patch notes enclosed.

Notable Additions

  • Kaiserreich now has its own implementation of Player-Led Peace Conferences and the State Transfer Tool. These can be activated via game rules, though if you are in debug mode then the State Transfer Tool is available by default. Note that, if you decide to use the PLPC or STT mods anyhow, it won’t break anything - you just won’t get our updates to them.
  • Japan’s intervention in China has been modified to be more in line with the vanilla version.
  • Japan’s “Fading Sun” peace mechanic with China has now been changed. Russia and China are dealt with by separate scripted peace events, and Japan has different levels of surrender ranging from minor defeat to total capitulation - they no longer lose their faction and all ability to declare war the moment Korea and Manchuria are occupied.
  • Total download size of the base mod has been reduced by ~50%, thanks to standardising most gfx to .png format.
  • The remainder of the former rework to Kaiserreich’s naval system has now been removed, bringing the naval system fully in line with vanilla's, save for names.

v.0.17

Notable Additions

  • The unit limit formula has been fully reworked - it now uses the country’s total population as a base, and then further modifies that value based on the country’s industrialisation relative to its population. The upper caps have been completely removed.

If Austria loses this war, it then seeks formal integration into the German Empire.
