Mod «For King and Country - Monarchies Expanded» for Hearts of Iron 4 (v1.9.0 - 1.9.3)
This mod aims to be a light and minor add-on, compatible with most mods of HOI4 that share a similar size. The mod does not add different country files and overwrite the minimum possible Vanilla files, as well as loading the necessary archives into the game, through events and scripted actions.
This mod, like the original, adds a new ideology: Monarchism. To ensure an expanded playthrough, this mod, unlike other that include similar ideologies relies on a vast amount of Leaders, Events, Decisions, Flavor and minor Mechanics. There are more than 500 new Portraits and Leaders, along with flags and minor interface changes that slightly improve the campaign. A new Generic Focus Tree was also included.
Every Pretender to the throne by the time the game begins is added as the default Monarchist Leader. African nations had Traditional Chiefs elevated to Sovereign Monarchs if they're included in a campaign with accurate portraits and in case of lacking one, more generic portraits were added carrying real names of said chiefs with a special care to their appearence.
In case of some European, American and Pacific nations, the mod includes the option of electing a Royal from the many ranks of Nobility as your ruler. More than 100 nobles are options for countries that never had a Monarch in their modern history, as well as having the option to put in charge the current leader or arrange alternative outcomes to the Vacant throne, rooted in real life events with a minimal of historical accuracy.
