  • New focus icons, event images, etc... (not a priority!)
  • Anything that goes through our mind
  • And more!


Q : Why the Soviet Union?

A : We always thought that the Soviet Union was way too weak. The Soviet focus tree is just boring and very short, without many options. Overall, for such a big and important country, Russia in the base game feels like you're just waiting forever. We wanted to change that (also the Soviet AI is... Let's not talk about it).

Q : What does the mod add?

A : A lot of stuff! We make sure that everything we add is well implemented within the mod, doesn't cause bugs, and most importantly, is fun to play. A lot of hidden events are to be discovered as well. It's for you to discover.

Q : Do I need any DLC to play the mod?

A : For a best experience of the mod, yes, as we use DLC content, such as espionage for example. However, the mod should still work without any DLC, some bugs might happen though, and the focuses for the operations will not do anything.

Q : Will the mod get updated regularly?

A : Yes! We will not, however, release small updates. Updates will happen depending on how far we've reached or if any game-breaking bug needs to be fixed.

Q : Can the AI play the Soviet Union?

A : Yes, it can. See below for more information.

Q : Can I play with my friends?

A : Yes, the mod is compatible with multiplayer.

Q : Is this mod compatible with other mods?

A : It should be as long as the other mods don't touch any files related to Russia (so no, it is not compatible with Road to 56 or any other overhaul mod). You might also encounter bugs if you play with a mod that replaces Finland's events for example, but we made sure to make it as compatible as possible.
Note that we are not responsible for your game crashing while using our mod.
