Mod «Nerves of Steel» for Hearts of Iron 4 (v1.10.5)


This mod is an updated and heavily reworked version of my old, now defunct mod, Better National Focuses.

This mod adds several new features such as:

  • New Ideologies: Monarchism, Socialism, Social Democracy, Liberalism, and Conservativism;
  • New map based on files originally from the Beautiful States mod, which is now defunct and whose owner has allowed anyone to use it's files in his absense, bless him;
  • Graphics that I personally enjoy and hope are aesthetically pleasing to others as well;
  • Geniune attempts at a historical experience in the Eastern Front, the Sino-Japanese War, and the Pacific Campaign;
  • Historical postwar peace events;
  • Plans for expansion into new historical senarios, I.E. The Great War and the Cold War;
  • Complete or Semi-Complete focuses for nearly every country in 1936;
  • A new and immersive Government Idea system;
  • A comprehensive force limit system.

Mod checked on game version: 1.10.5

  • Various fixes and improvements.
