Hearts of Iron IV: World Ablaze (4.5)
Download this World Ablaze (4.5) mod for Hearts of Iron IV and lead your nation to victory and prosperity in the Second World War! Put your enemies on their back!

This mod adds World Ablaze (4.5) to the Game.

World Ablaze is a ongoing project to completely overhaul the vanilla game to become more challenging, historical and indepth. Right now it features a massive expansion to the tech trees, large improvements to the ai, expanded focus tree’s and numerous small changes that improve the gameplay experience.

Each Nation has a customized tech tree and AI all with a unique flavor. (e.g. The tiger tank is what it always was, one of the deadliest tanks of WWII)

Also this mod closely follows historical statistics and dates, but a few concessions have been made for the sake of balance. It also assumes the war can go up to 1948 therefore some post war techs have been included even those after 1948 to take into account the arms race that occurs during war.

Major Features: A much more robust and dangerous AI (more so when going down historical paths) unique artwork for all new technologies including vanilla ones Expanded tech tree’s for all nations A overhauled political and economic system with more tabs to better represent history Reworked and expanded focus tree’s for Germany and Soviet Union New harsher weather system Unique tech tree’s for each of the major nations and some minor’s A complete rebalance of the game mechanics more division icons with color New Decisions and events and a more historical play through (D-Day, Polish uprising) More research bonuses using Army XP Some focus tree reworks (Soon to be completely expanded with at least a 50% size increase) Changes to state boundaries and categories More realistic construction, with each subsequent building in each state costing more and repair times increasing Changes to the economy to accurately reflect the toll of war
Road map:

This mod is incompatible with the majority of mods especially concerning the AI, States and Tech tree’s with the main exception being graphical changes to the UI

DISCLAIMER: This mod only supports the English version of the game
