Hoi4 Peace Conference Mod
with the war over, the last thing russia needed was a new war against japan. the japanese came to the peace conference with a black list of claims on german territory and colonies in asia and the pacific. as the only one of the entente powers to have sustained uninterrupted military successes against the central powers, britain did not support these japanese claims.
finally, some peace conferences, depending on what happens in the global- or world news, can trigger new events. for example, if a peace conference with a major power leads to a world war, that country is subject to a 50% tax for a year. the world will also be subject to trade sanctions for a year.
the mod also features a new mechanic for factions that can be used for peace conferences. all factions in the mod can declare peace conferences, but only once a faction is at peace can it declare a peace conference. a peace conference can only happen if a faction is in a war with another faction, and it can happen with other powers that are not at war.
the mod also features a new mechanic for alliances. alliances are a new idea in hoi4, and they are also the cause for many of the peace conferences. alliances are formed automatically if you’re at war with another faction. an alliance can be dissolved if the alliance members are at peace with each other, if there is an ongoing war, or if one of the members is occupied by another faction.
the mod also includes a selection of new missions for peace conferences. most peace conferences are triggered by a low-level world event. for example, a uk peace conference is triggered by a nationalistic uprising in ireland, while a us peace conference is triggered by the us defeating germany in the great war.
i have finished the mod for hoi4. the mod is now playable in hoi4. i’ve added a new power and a new difficulty setting. i have also finished some of the units, and i will continue to work on the units until i’m done.
for the smaller powers, particularly belgium and the united states, the peace conferences brought up the possibility of joining the allies. germany had offered to make a deal with these countries as well, but the leaders of the west had declined, because they would rather a big and united germany than a weak but independent one. this caused some resentment towards germany as their options of war and peace were over the board. the germans were therefore left with only their own colonies to secure their influence in europe.
i am the author of this mod. some of you might know me from my world war 1 mod. i have done my best to make sure the core of this mod stays unchanged. however, some features were made optional, while i changed others to avoid cluttering up the ui. the mod now only contains two new items: a diplomacy dialogue option for the peace conference and a changelog for the mod.
1. the mod is now limited to the 2 peace conferences of hoi4. the mod is not really meant to provide a new gameplay experience. instead, it is supposed to be a good entry point for players who want to play hoi4 with more depth. 2. i have removed a lot of the diplomacy options that were only used in the war but were not really useful in the peace conferences. 3. i have added a new game option: if you want to start the peace conferences from a neutral state.
