Mod «Historical Project Mod» for Hearts of Iron 4 (v1.10.7)


Inspired by the Victoria II mod of the same name, the Historical Project Mod (HPM) for HOI4 seeks to enhance the vanilla HOI4 experience by adding and tweaking historical events, decisions, and focuses without disrupting the core experience as designed by Paradox.

At the moment, HPM for HOI4 is still in an early stage.I plan on adding a lot of things but expect this version to be pretty close to vanilla but with some tweaks and a few new events. If you find any bugs while using the mod, please report them to me. Also, going down alternate history paths or using the 1939 start date may break certain features as those things haven't been tested.

Current Features

  • Tweaked Soviet and German factory counts
  • Synthetic fuel refineries are 2x more powerful to compensate for Germany being cut off from Middle Eastern oil
