0.18 - 'Forest Brothers' - 14th of July, 2021

Hello everyone, Alpinia here, and I'm proud to bring to you one of the largest updates to Kaiserreich so far - 0.18 'Forest Brothers'. The new reworked nations brought to you this time around are none other than Bhutan, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Wales and White Ruthenia. But of course, it doesn't stop there, with a whole host of literally hundreds of other additions, improvements and fixes, as detailed in the full patch notes enclosed.

Notable Additions

  • Kaiserreich now has its own implementation of Player-Led Peace Conferences and the State Transfer Tool. These can be activated via game rules, though if you are in debug mode then the State Transfer Tool is available by default. Note that, if you decide to use the PLPC or STT mods anyhow, it won’t break anything - you just won’t get our updates to them.
  • Japan’s intervention in China has been modified to be more in line with the vanilla version.
  • Japan’s “Fading Sun” peace mechanic with China has now been changed. Russia and China are dealt with by separate scripted peace events, and Japan has different levels of surrender ranging from minor defeat to total capitulation - they no longer lose their faction and all ability to declare war the moment Korea and Manchuria are occupied.
  • Total download size of the base mod has been reduced by ~50%, thanks to standardising most gfx to .png format.
  • The remainder of the former rework to Kaiserreich’s naval system has now been removed, bringing the naval system fully in line with vanilla's, save for names.

0.17 - 'Springtime for Kaiser' - 17th of April, 2021

Hey everyone! Our next update here, it's not a big one but is rather a huge compilation of bug fixes and some smaller changes. We hope you enjoy it all the same! Now stop memeing, the pretty words are here.

Notable Additions

  • The unit limit formula has been fully reworked - it now uses the country’s total population as a base, and then further modifies that value based on the country’s industrialisation relative to its population. The upper caps have been completely removed.
  • Removed the militia unit - militias are now represented by infantry division templates with low combat width.
  • Restored the resource gain from infrastructure, but at a rate of 5% instead of the vanilla 10%.
  • Syndicalist-aligned Social Democrats have been removed. All such paths have been reviewed and moved to full RadSoc or full SocDem.
  • Expanded the interactions of the Austrian Military Occupation path with Germany, Poland and the Belgrade Pact - The Brotherhood of Slavs as a faction no longer exists, and its previous members now join the Belgrade Pact instead, calling them into the war against Austria. If Austria loses this war, it then seeks formal integration into the German Empire.
  • The Union of Britain’s Republican Army and their high command are no longer a ragtag group of screamy militias.
  • Overhauled the Indian portraits and rosters.
  • Added support for additional font colours and characters for decisions and tooltips.
  • Ongoing rebalancing and speed-up work in the Spanish Civil War, which is now set up to end in 1939 or before in most runs. The Spanish Civil War will now always occur, unless bypassed in Game Rules.

0.16 - 'Hindsight is 2020' - 17th of January, 2021

What a year it’s been, hey? But as they say, hindsight is 2020 so 0.16 doesn’t bring any new focus trees, instead looking at existing content and bringing an enormous number of tweaks, fixes, quality of life changes, optimisations and more. You won’t have any new nations to play today, but your old favorites will be that much more polished. If you are looking forward to new content, don’t worry, we are working hard there as well; it’ll just be a little longer. Finally, we have broken a lot of the models off from the main mod and into submods. If you don’t care about models you can enjoy the extra space, while if you do you’ll need to subscribe to the new submods (and get many new models in the process). You can find them all in the Official Kaiserreich Collection. Enjoy!

0.15.2 - 30th of November, 2020

Yet another hotfix is out, including a number of changes that will most likely make it worth the wait. Notably, the production AI has seen many changes, which should translate into a more reactive and generally more fun to play against unit buildup. We have also implemented equipment tier conversion across the board, which should get rid of the endless stacks of useless equipment that always accrue in the late game. Due to a number of mapping bugs, this hotfix is not at all save-game compatible, and as such any saves will break. If you desire to finish your current games, the manual Mediafire download link is available on the PDX forums; else, enjoy the new additions!

  • The KR4 team

Changes

Notable Additions

  • The construction/template system for the AI has been considerably overhauled. You should now see the AI properly upgrading their starting templates and building a larger variety of decent units.
  • Transamur’s tree has received an update, now focused on taking back the country during the Weltkrieg - as such, its AI will no longer be passive during the war, and may attack Russia if not puppeted by Japan beforehand.
  • Equipment is now convertable between tiers - e.g., a 1918 rifle can be upgraded to a 1936 rifle, without making a new rifle from scratch. Upgrading existing equipment is cheaper than making new equipment.
  • Rebalanced the League War with how tags declare war and the costs for units - different tags will find it harder or easier.
  • The Internationale now has access to exiled Russian Bolshevik military leaders, denoted by a special trait.
  • Korea and Taiwan now start as Japanese cores - but with significant penalties, as represented by their new state modifiers. Should the Japanese Empire collapse, those cores will be removed, and cannot be regained.

Reworked/Expanded Focus Trees

  • Transamur

New Events

  • Union of Britain
  • Russian Socialist Republic
  • League of Eight Provinces Collapse event chain

New Decisions

  • Transamur

GFX

  • New portraits for:
    • Ireland: Richard Mulcahy

Music Mod

  • Added two songs from Kaisercat’s latest production, The Divided States.
  • Various localization fixes.

Mapping

  • Bohemia has been given new, more historically authentic states and population figures. These are merely changes in anticipation for the A-H rework. The OTL Sudeten states are essentially redundant because they only are in vanilla to simulate the temporary 1938-9 border, but there is no need for KR to simulate the Munich Diktat and Pan-German nationalists claimed the entirety of Bohemia. The new states are a compromise between existing administrative divisions, economic units, and rough ethnographic regions with some notable exceptions.
  • Fixed a misplaced mountain in Manchuria.
  • Added a missing impassable adjacency in the Pyrenees.
  • Adjusted Wallonia's build slots.
  • Britain now has larger oil deposits.

  • A slight rebalance to the Japanese air tree.

Fixes

0.14.2a - 19th of October, 2020

Hello everyone! While we’re still hard at work on the next version of Kaiserreich, we also didn’t wish to leave you unable to play it, so here’s a quick compatibility patch for 0.10.1. Until then, enjoy KR without needing to roll back anymore!

Changes

  • Updated the mod for compatibility with 0.10.1 and Battle for the Bosporus.

0.14.2 - 11th of September, 2020

Here’s another hotfix! As always we’ve taken the time to make various fixes and refinements, along with a host of new portraits! This will likely be the last hotfix for this release, but you never know. Either way, until then, enjoy!


Notable Additions


  • All ACW division templates are now unlocked, allowing for their editing and disbanding, but the units will still be removed upon the end of the war

0.14.1 - 28th of August, 2020

Which came first - the heat or the fix? We sure don’t know, but great philosophical questions aside, here’s a bit of both for you. Hopefully this’ll be the first and only hotfix needed for “The Duke and the Hertzog”, and we’ve tackled some pretty big problems while introducing a few small balance changes along the way. As always, let us know what you think as you play! Enjoy!

0.14 - 'The Duke and the Hertzog' - 21st of August, 2020

Here’s 0.14 ‘The Duke and the Hertzog’, less than a month after our last release! This has to be one of the fastest, if not the fastest, development turnarounds we’ve had in the past three years. So as always, big thanks to the team and their hard work! We can’t guarantee such a rapid release schedule in the future, we are after all a group of volunteers working in our spare time, but we’d like to think this represents just how much our standards and practices have improved as a team. Enjoy!

  • Wales has a new (and correct) flag
  • The Dutch diplomatic focus tree has been converted into decisions
  • Redid the dates for some Danish events
  • Reworked the Brazilian annexation events so, upon deciding to not release Brazil as a whole, it switches to the events for the individual regions instead of trying to release all the splinter states at once. Thus decisions can be made for each region as to whether or not it should be occupied, released as a puppet, or its land given to some other Brazilian splinter state.
  • The Russian war decisions now fire a warning event to the target and the target’s allies at the onset of the decision, telling players that Russia intends to go to war “within a few weeks”

  • Serbia can now form the Belgrade Pact before its political tree is started if Romania or Greece attack first
  • Several tags now use coalition mechanics - they will gain 50% of the partners’ popularities as daily political power (added to the base ruling party’s gain)
  • The Russian Socialist Republic will now attempt to protect a socialist Estonia or Latvia and bring them into the Internationale
  • All cases of early (pre-1939) Second Weltkrieg starts have been disabled, and a game rule to re-enable them has been added

  • Japan can now call its puppets to its wars
  • Added a new "Crownland" autonomy state for the Austrian puppets

  • Player Bulgaria can now cede Dobrogea peacefully if they want to
  • Burma’s starting politics/leadership has been changed to reflect its future rework

Incomplete Content

  • A new game rule has been added for regulating when WK2 can begin. By default, it’s the current setting where WK2 can’t happen before 1939 (or, rather, it shouldn’t - though there are some places which have been missed). The game rule adds a setting for a pre-1939 WK2 beginning to either be rare or unrestricted (meaning it simply depends on the regular chances of the events involved). We’re doing a sweep through events to catch all those places which were missed previously, but it’s an effort which will take a while, so it’s unlikely to work perfectly yet.

Fixes

Notable Fixes

  • The bug that prevented the peace conference AI from working properly in 0.13.2 has been fixed
  • The previous workaround which made countries incorrectly get drawn into a peace conference whenever a country whose faction leader was not in the war now actually works for puppets as well (so, for instance, a puppet Vietnam falling to Indochina won’t cause all of German East Asia to suddenly be annexed).
  • Fixed the endless Fate of Latvia/Estonia loop for Russia
  • Austria can no longer lock itself out of its focus tree by betraying its secret deal with Hungary
  • Romania no longer loses its HoG in the legionary path

Other Fixes

  • Fixed Northern Epirus not being grantable to Albania by Serbia
  • Fixed some oddities with the Flanders/Wallonia/Belgium annexation events
  • Bulgaria can now use its reconciliation decisions even when a puppet - though, if it’s a puppet, the decision can only be used on its overlord
  • The Turkestan emir is now removed as a field marshal when he dies
  • Old ministers in Flanders, Bolivia, and Central America are now properly removed when the government changes
  • Returning cores/claims to an ally will now give them all coastal and contiguous states at once, instead of needing to have the decision used repeatedly to catch interior states
  • The events used when the UK and France demand the return of colonial states now fires for the owner of those states and not just the controller
  • Updated the AI for Italy’s decision to attack Austria to be a bit more judicious, and to wait for Serbia - when applicable
  • Prevented the Yen Bai Mutiny events from refiring
  • If a puppet somehow ends up at war with its overlord, it’ll now be set free
  • Fengtian can now no longer use its war decisions when a puppet

  • Fixed the Vojvodina annexation decision to not trigger until there’s at least one applicable option which can be taken

  • Puppet Central America can no longer use its war decisions
  • The regular peace event for Italy and Austria will no longer fire if Italy is involved in the Belgrade Pact war on Austria and thus eligible for the Budapest Treaty peace event
  • The decisions for Canada to declare war on the CSA or intervene in the ACW should no longer disappear forever if interrupted by the CSA’s strike idea
  • Countries that unify China via the generic decision can now integrate their allies

0.13.2 - 31st of July, 2020

Hello everyone! We weren’t originally intending on another hotfix for 0.13, but it turns out a (rather routine) replacement of event picture references also changed a flag for the German Halbstarke event - meaning they can never remove their Black Monday effects. Pretty vital to correct that, so here’s the hotfix for that and any other issues we’ve fixed in the interim.

Changes

GFX

  • New portraits for Enver Hoxha (ALB), Wilhelm of Wied (ALB), J.B. Miles (AST), Sveinn Bjornsson (ICE), Kai-Uwe von Hassel (MAF), Gabriel Auphan (NFA), Christoffel Venter (SAF), Gustaf V (SWE)

Miscellaneous

  • Russian integration of annexed lands is now handled by compliance-gated decisions. This was done primarily for the sake of visibility: using the compliance system only made it difficult for some Russian players to determine how to get cores.
  • Added Ireland foreign policy game rule
  • Added peace conference rule for the Third Internationale to stay out of China and Southeast Asia if there are any Asian countries at the conference who are willing to take those states
  • Peace conference code has been sped up considerably
  • Bulgarian coup events are no longer limited by the Russian government - their chances of success are just influenced instead
  • Russian AI will now focus on the Caucasus first before Eastern Europe, if they can go after both

Fixes

Notable Fixes

  • The Halbstarke error, which prevented Black Monday effects from being removed by Germany, has been fixed

Other Fixes

  • Some adjustments to the Treaty of Budapest:
    • The chain should occur more quickly, now
    • the AI is now guaranteed to accept peace, unless they’re in a faction and the faction leader (a player) has already refused the treaty
    • Added more variations to the event text, particularly for Italy and Poland, and covering the possibility for when Germany’s intervention means Italy might not receive anything out of the treaty (the text won’t imply that they do)
  • Workaround for a rare occurrence where partial control over a non-enemy state whose owner is in exile will drag them into a peace conference, even though their faction hasn’t capitulated yet
  • Fixed incorrect state id reference in Status of Salonica trigger
  • All government changes in Switzerland, Honduras, Uruguay, Papal State, and Lombardy now properly remove old ministers
  • Bulgaria no longer loses all its cores in the instance where the Greek rebel state is annexed by Greece proper (Bulgaria’s cores were accidentally being removed instead of the Greek rebel cores)
  • Fate of Dalmatia decision now fires the correct event
  • Fixed a mis-firing Serbia event
  • Fixed Guangzhou being counted as part of Legation Cities
  • Fixed Mongolian and Tibetan endonyms being overridden by Chinese ones
  • Fixed the Huiyang and Huizhou endonyms
  • Socialist Russia no longer claims Pas-de-Calais
  • Fixed a puppet Ma Clique being able to change their government
  • Alash Orda will no longer be set free by the RCW in the rare case where they stay loyal
  • Fixed the Romanian legionary minister changes removing the HoG
  • Poland can now be granted a puppet Galicia if released after the latter

0.13.1 - 29th of July, 2020

Hello everyone! It's been less than two weeks since the release of 0.13, and we're here with what we hope will be the one and only hotfix necessary for it. It addresses a few minor crash issues and a whole host of bugs. We've done our best to keep this hotfix save-compatible, though as usual we can't guarantee that due to the weird things HoI4 sometimes done when content gets changed mid-game - so we recommend starting a new game. If you continue an old game, please don't report bugs based on it. Otherwise? Enjoy! The next scheduled release will be 0.14, barring any unforeseen major bugs that crop up, and in the meantime stay safe and plague-free.

Mapping

  • Saint Louis in Senegal is now in the right place
  • Volgograd state and VP has been renamed to Tsaritsyn from the start
  • Fixed the urban terrain of Tashkent being on the wrong place

Miscellaneous

  • Bulgaria now has a small sub-tree for when it has a SocCon government under Aleksandar Stamboliyski (primarily occurring if/when it is a Serbian puppet, but not restricted to that). The chain for the merger with Serbia is now triggered by a focus.
  • If Bulgaria goes SocDem or MarkLib after the Balkan War, the possibility of an Absolutist or Narrow Socialist coup is now triggered by a separate event, and this is under player control (no more relying on RNG for it to occur).
  • If Bulgaria accepts the Balkan War loss event, its conscription and economy laws are immediately moved to minimum. This will force it to demobilize, at least for a while.
  • Italy and Two Sicilies can now join Austria’s sphere even once they merge with the Reichspakt during WK2 (they will leave the faction with Austria when it leaves).
  • The Treaty of Budapest chain has been expanded. Now, if Germany still exists, Austria can appeal to them for intervention at the outset of the chain. If Germany agrees, they will intervene in the peace talks in exchange for Austria immediately joining the Reichspakt (permanently). This means any country not accepting peace will find themselves at war with Germany, and Germany also prevents Austrian core territories (such as Istria, Slovenia, and South Tyrol) from being annexed. If Germany does not intervene, Austria can lose all those states and their faction will be removed for good.
  • Should Austria be conquered or lose its faction through the Treaty of Budapest, Italy will be able to join the Reichspakt (in this instance, this also applies to a National Populist Italy).
  • Added a peace conference rule so Russia will tend to stay out of Western Europe
  • Added world tension for the collapse of the LEP and Germany, as well as one for the Sino-Japanese war
  • Rewrote Harry Truman’s bio
  • Slightly reduced the Black Monday nerfs for Germany
  • Japan now actually loses SocCon popularity if the Seiyukai loses its majority.
  • Added city fall events for Tokyo, Manila, Vladivostok and Dublin
  • Added annexation mission for the Legation Cities. The releasing nation now gets a seat on the Council, so now anybody can be on it.
  • Removed syndicalist Gold Coast being called Golden Pact
  • Gave Montenegro party names
  • Enhanced some Ireland events
  • Added leader descriptions for Romanian head of states
  • Added a dozen new events for Romania.
  • Added a research slot to Romanian army tree.
  • Added a new “Confederated State” subject level for Italian subjects of either Two Sicilies or Sardinia when they create the Italian Confederation, offering more benefits to the overlord than regular puppets
  • Ethiopia now starts with claims on already-owned Eritrean lands
  • Paraguay starts the game with a small division limit bonus
  • Nejd and Jabal Shamar now receive a division limit bonus while fighting their war against each other
  • Arabia now receives a division limit bonus as part of its ‘Desert Logistics’ national idea
  • Russia now fully uses the compliance system for gaining cores on conquered lands
  • Post-MAF armies have been overhauled
  • Added the Phalanstere Internationale as a economic sphere in the diplomacy tab
  • Albania can no longer pull Romania or Bulgaria into its wars
  • Baoding Sichuan can now ally with the Left KMT
  • Ottoman Minister list got reworked in preparation for their eventual implementation (say goodbye to Mustafa Kemal for now as CoS, for he will come back later as HoG)
  • Added event warnings for tags, and their overlords if puppeted, soon to be attacked by the Fengtian Government, Qing/Zhili, and the LEP. These warnings will be received sooner if a decryption advantage is possessed over the aggressor tag, or if decryption progress has been started against them (with LaR). Exceptions were left for explicit sneak-attacks, or where other warnings exist.
  • Added game rules for Fengtian’s overall obedience or assertiveness. If obedient, Fengtian will still attempt to balance its internal factions, and may become rowdy, but should not declare war. Likewise if assertive it will still occasionally take pro-Japanese decisions, but will have a far higher chance to declare war against Japan.
  • Renamed Huangshan to Huizhou, and Huizhou to Huiyang.
  • Qing can now use its “integrate faction members” decision more than once, should qualifying tags remain.
  • Added a small dispersed industry tech boost to Restored Qing’s NCERA rural development focus.

  • Fixed Ukraine being able to join the TI too early.
  • The United Kingdom choosing direct rule over Ireland won't make the annexation decision appear again

0.13 - 'A King and his Captain' - 19th of July, 2020

Continuing our pattern of smaller, more focused updates we are delighted to bring you the Romanian rework! Of course we haven’t been idle in other places; many other nations, notably Serbia, have received changes as well. In addition, we are very pleased to give you one of our greatest performance improvements to date as a result of our new division limit and our totally rewritten annexation decisions; details for both can be found below. We hope you enjoy this update!

- The KR4 team

Changes

New Systems

Division Limit:


A new mechanic has been added to all nations; the division limit. It represents the total number of divisions that a country can safely support. The AI will simply not build past this limit. Players can build past this limit, but they will be notified when they’re over it (via a flashing alert on their Recruit & Deploy tab) and will receive a malus that increases the more they go over that limit.

  • Why do this? One of the biggest complaints about Kaiserreich is lag, particularly late game lag which can make playing into the 1940’s almost unbearable. Having a cap on the total number of units (particularly the number of units that smaller countries can field) is the biggest way we can help with this. We also apply it to the player for balance reasons: if the AI has division limits but a player doesn’t, the difference in difficulty (particularly for major nations) is profound.
  • What if I don’t like this anyhow? We’ve added a custom game rule option if you want to shut it off, either for the player only (meaning the player experiences no malus if they go over the limit, and is not informed when they’re over it, but the AI will still obey the limit) or entirely.
  • How is the limit calculated? At its base, the limit is the number of factories (after trade) multiplied by a factor established by your current Economy Law - with an upper cap also established by the Economy Law. Some countries with very high manpower but few factories (like China or India) or who own lots of states (like Russia) will have a lower-end cap on their limit that is higher than that provided by factories, but if they build enough factories they too can raise it higher. The limit never goes below 5 units, and some countries receive special bonuses (usually temporary) which add to that final total. If you hover over the limit field at the top right of your Recruit & Deploy tab, you’ll see a tooltip that explains exactly how the limit is calculated.
  • I like the limit, but I feel it’s unfair to country X! Kaiserreich has a lot of content, and while we’ve done testing it’s more than possible there are special situations we haven’t yet noticed, or old content (like units being spawned) which never took into account the possibility of a division limit and which haven’t yet been adjusted. If you come across such, please report it to us on our GitHub issue tracker and we’ll fix it as quickly as we can.
  • A bit of adjustment is required for this system, we know, but it really does affect game speeds as the game goes on, and we hope you’ll bear with us in the interim as the kinks are worked out.

Other Notable Additions

  • Annexation missions (the decisions you see which pop up after you gain territory, which allow for the release of puppets) have been reworked so they are now triggered. What does that mean? It means that there are no longer hundreds of decisions being evaluated every game day to see if those missions are valid (for many users, resulting in a slight pause at the end of each game day as the game evaluates all those triggers). Instead, the conditions are checked after any annexation or after territory is gained, and at no other time. This doesn’t totally rid of that daily pause, but it does lessen it significantly, though your mileage will vary as with all performance changes
  • Austria now joins the Reichspakt when they intervene in the 2WK, and leave it afterward
  • Japan can now only call its allies into its wars if it’s losing or at war with a major

New Game Rules

  • Division Limits: limits can be disabled for players only or entirely
  • Peacetime Demobilization: the mission that requires countries to reduce their Economy and Mobilization laws during peace can be disabled, either for the player only or for all countries
  • Faction Diplomacy Buttons: several patches ago, the faction-related buttons on the diplomacy interface were removed, since all faction creation/joining is done via decisions and events in Kaiserreich. Some players, however, use the console to allow use of those buttons for their own purposes, so we’ve added a rule which allows the restoration of the buttons if the user so wishes. Restoring the buttons does not give them any more functionality than they had previously.

0.12.2 - 5th of June, 2020

Hello all! We hope you enjoyed the prior warning for this patch and found it useful, it was something very new to us but we think it worked well. 0.12.2 brings you a whole host of bug fixes, along with a number of quality of life changes we know you’ll enjoy; GEA and Mittelafrika now once more start in the Reichspakt, we’ve restored the possibility of taking control of puppet forces (with exceptions) and much more. We’ve also added the start of a new economic sphere UI. We have bigger plans for the UI going forward, but getting it out sooner lets us test and get feedback sooner rather than later. Stay safe out there!

0.12.1 - 24th of May, 2020

We hope you enjoyed the release of 0.12, we certainly did; it was one of the smoothest releases we have ever had with not a single CTD found. This has meant we’ve been able to take a little bit longer with this patch and get more fixes in than we otherwise would. One small downside you should be aware of is that some bug fixes required mapping changes, so sadly this hotfix won’t be save game compatible. We hope you don’t mind and enjoy the most polished Kaiserreich experience yet.

It’s time for Beta 0.12! Continuing the tradition of last patch, this is a slightly smaller update but coming to you far sooner than you might have expected.

Depending on your system things may run up to 25% more smoothly than in 0.11. We hope 0.12 helps brighten your day as you stay at home. Stay safe out there!

  • Chinese United Front should behave better, break apart correctly and should now properly white peace between potential participants
  • The “Peace with the Western Coalition” timer no longer endlessly resets
  • Removed the generic civil war mechanic in Siam, it now works like all other civil wars in the mod, spawning a new tag, SIR. This has fixed a large number of secondary issues

Other Fixes

  • Cosmetic tag for League of Nine Provinces now works correctly
  • LEP can now remove unrest if Shandong is AuthDem
  • Persia’s starting ship construction no longer has no modules
  • Italian unification decisions are no longer restricted to neighbors

  • The Belgrade Pact will no longer disband if Romania is its only member and drops out to fight its civil war
  • ACW countries are now disabled from generating wargoals on each other during the Rocky Mountain Ceasefire, as opposed to the AI just being discouraged

  • Allowed for the Halifax Conference to take place outside of Canada, if Canada has fallen

  • Canada’s decisions to attack the CSA or intervene in the ACW will now be canceled if the CSA applies its strikes modifier before the decision reaches its 30-day mark.

  • Fixed the opening Imperial Conference event having reversed localization, based on whether Canada chose to concentrate on the dominions or itself.

  • Fixed the Swedish syndicalist flag which was not properly rendering
  • Updated the Colombian, Montenegrin and Venezuelan flags so they are now using the correct colors

0.11.2- 16th of March, 2020

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 - 5th of March, 2020

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. Of course, this patch doesn’t just bring 1.9 compatibility with it, we’ve also put some work into the Balkans and China, along with a huge number of fixes. We hope you enjoy it!

0.10 - ‘Blood on the Yangtze’ - 27th of December, 2019

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
