Mod «Novum Vexillum» for Hearts of Iron 4 (v1.11.1 - 1.11.4)


This project aims to be a modern era total conversion, starting where Millennium Dawn Classic left off. This mod will initially contain nearly all existing features in MDC, as well as several new features and many graphical improvements. Over time, this will diverge until the point in which all original features from MDC are replaced or overhauled. While we will be adding complex features, such as advanced economy and political systems, many of the significant gameplay changes are planned to be optional or low-impact. We understand many players of modern era mods prefer a military sandbox experience over geopolitical adventures, and we want to cater to both demographics, where possible.

Current Features:

  • Starting decisions for customizable gameplay;
  • Fully integrated and extended MTG naval tech tree;
  • Streamlined tech trees, including new carrier variants for fighters, attackers, and naval bombers;
  • Significant graphical enhancements and better tech icons;
  • About a dozen new decisions, with many more to come;
  • Newly balanced land units and vehicles;
  • Completely integrated fuel system;
  • New industry tech tree.


We have many planned and in-progress features on the way, as we expect the development time of this mod to be many months or years. Our end goal is to create an interesting and accurate depiction of modern geopolitics, international trade, social cohesion and unrest, and warfare. The plans which follow are not necessarily all that will be added, as there are too many to list here.

  • New focus trees to replace all existent ones;
  • Abstract economy and political systems;
  • Advanced internal politics;
  • Social cohesion and unrest;
  • National personalities, adding new possibilities for international conflict;
  • International trade and political agreements;
  • Realistic naval combat and configurations;
  • Extensively accurate vehicle and equipment icons and names;
  • Helicopters;
  • Interactive space program;
  • New 3D models for all in game units.

Could you make a National Foucus in Czech and Slowak Focus Tree to Reunite Czechoslowakia Please.

Thanks ! 


The Mod Creator/Team are clearly focusing on the naval aspects of this mod which is fantastic but please do not go in to the direction of millennium dawn. It has a lot of stuff but it comes off as shallow. Please add a theocratic Ideology and a fundamentalist/Extremist religious ideology as opposed to Islamist.

can you but a real generals in palestine with thier photos 

Shahjahan Masood

Finally Pakistan is Nuclear!!!!


can you update this mod to accomodate 1.10.8 version?
