Mod «Choose Your Leader!» for Hearts of Iron 4 (v1.11.1 - 1.11.13)

Choose Your Leader!

Welcome to "Choose Your Leader!", The mod that allows you to... well... choose your leader.

There are a lot of portraits in Hearts of Iron 4 but to get one of them to be your leader, you have to play for a long time and choose the right way accurately. Of course it is often fun to play but sometimes it can be too long and even exhausting. Not to mention all the portraits of the generals who can be leaders but there is no way to do that.

Well now there is! Have you ever thought what would happen if MacArthur was the Communist leader of America? Or any other American general? Or perhaps if Trotsky took power in Russia as a democrat?

If you have ever asked yourself these questions (although probably not...), this is the mod for you!

With a little click of a button, you can replace the leader of each country in Hearts of Iron 4 in every portrait that this country has and in any ideology you want!

Download the mod now and you will be able to replace any leader from any country with any other leader or general! You might even see some portraits you didn't know existed in the game or find even some funny Easter Eggs that the developers of the game put in.

I wish you'll enjoy this mod! I hope you'll have a good time playing this mod just like I had creating it!

Important Remarks:

  1. The mod includes only unique portraits and not generic ones. Generic portraits, unlike unique portraits, can be used by lots of countries and this can be confusing and useless.
  2. Because not all countries have more than one portrait in the game, unfortunately they will have only one option and you will not be able to switch between different leaders while playing it. But you can still bring the leader back under a different ideology if the country you're playing is replacing their ideology.
  3. I believe I managed to put all the pictures that are in Hearts of Iron 4 and I've checked several times for safety measure but if you find a picture I missed during the creation of the mod or a mistake I made, leave a comment below and I'll make sure to read it and fix the mistake as quickly as possible.
  4. If you don't know what kind of leader you want for you country or if you want to randomize all the leaders in the world, there is now a new feature for it: the RYL button- "Randomize Your Leader!". This button will (as the name suggests) make the AI to choose your leader randomly for you! Unfortunately, because not every country has more than one portrait, only the ones who have several portraits to choose from will have this button.
  5. Added all the new Battle For The Bosporus portraits of existing leaders and generals.
  6. New game rules to divide and Fragmentate Germany and Czechoslovakia and to release the CSA in the American Decolonization path. And a releasable Kurdistan. (REMOVED)
  7. You can now choose a leader not only from your specific country but from all the countries in the world. all you have to do is to click the new "Remove all CYL decisions" and then choose the country of your desired portrait.
