0.11.2

It’s time for another hotfix! While we are pleased with our work getting patch 1.9 and LaR running with KR in record time, there were sadly more than a few rough edges. In 0.11.2 we’ve fixed a lot of them, including the infamous disappearing national spirits bug. We’ve also had some time for more QoL changes, including a mini rework of the Soviet Union, now called the Russian Socialist Republic.

Please note that this patch is targeting the 1.9.1 beta build, so please make sure you opt into the beta to play. Details of how to do that can be found here: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/hoi4-husky-1-9-1-beta-hotfix-checksum-2628-not-for-problem-reports.1342931/

Please also note that sadly this patch isn’t save game compatible. If you wish to continue a save you can download the old version here: https://forum.paradoxplaza.com/forum/index.php?threads/kaiserreich-download.1141575/

We hope you enjoy all the changes!

0.11.1

1.9 is here! It has provided a lot of existing new tools and while we haven’t yet made full use of 1.9 yet, we thought you’d rather not wait any longer to be able to play. So in that vein, please be aware that new features may not be utilized to the full or as balanced as we might like that, that will come with time.

0.10 - ‘Blood on the Yangtze’

We are out of alpha! Welcome to the first beta version of Kaiserreich for Hearts of Iron 4. We are so happy to be here and couldn’t be more proud of all the work that has been done to get here. We never would have got here without one of the most amazing and passionate communities in all of gaming. Thank you. This update is our largest ever, with no less than 17 pages of changes. Highlights include, of course, the long awaited China update, the Italian rework, new naval changes, our largest ever performance improvement, an insane number of bug fixes and huge quality of life changes. More than ever before, we hope you enjoy playing Kaiserreich!

- The KR4 team

P.S. We owe a massive thanks to Dayshine, among others, who have been working on CWTools. It has been an invaluable tool for us and we encourage modders from all Paradox games to make use of it.

P.P.S. We are aware of many people still having trouble with the new launcher. We believe we have identified, and fixed, the cause of some of the issues, though not all. If you are still having trouble, we have written up a guide which we hope will be of some use: https://kaiserreich.fandom.com/wiki/Troubleshooting_the_HoI4_Launcher

Changes

Notable Additions

  • Industry technologies values in KR are now in line with the vanilla ones, i.e. instead of 10% you now get 20% of new building slots per state in every tech.

The USA and Germany stability debuffs were changed to accommodate this.
  • The endonym/exonym game rule has been removed. The system can now be switched on and off via a button in the UI. News event settings have also been moved to a button.
