Back from Christmas



Hi everyone! The team is now back from holidays, rested and fresh and ready to jump to it. In fact we already have done a couple of things that we will be releasing this week if all goes well. Release of Together for Victory went well and we saw more people than ever play HOI4 during Christmas. It was also really nice to hear that people feel like AI has taken a good step in the right direction with 1.3 Torch and we will continue working with this.

So as I said we had time to fix a couple of things during the holidays and after getting back, so here is our changelog for a 1.3.2 hotfix:

- Fixed CTD when double clicking the first factory in a line superduperfast to reset factories
- AI now much better at respecting airbase size limits
- Improved AI management of air missions
- Deployment is now allowed in locations where it supposed to, regardless if your capital state is not owned by you.
- Fixed huge slow down and eternal freeze in the peace conference.
- Lowered air combat delay so that some areas will still see combat even though caught in extreme time zones.
- Crusader Kings 2 achievement now requires correct states
- Rebalanced air combat for increased air casualties
- Air accidents should no longer happen in peacetime
- Added CTD safety for voice over playing in case player has some broken sound drivers
- Fixed potential CTD in clearing country resources on civil war starts
- Fixed a manpower transfer issue causing units to disappear after peaceful annexation (like the Anchluss)
- Fixed issue with Australia demanding New Zealand causing Australia to be kicked out of any faction it is currently in
- Fixed two typos in Indian focus tree/ideas
- Tech tree now refresh after switching tag (when choosing to play as new puppet) which made some achievements tricky
- Transfer ship effect (like in NZL focuses) no longer sometimes transfers wrong ships (or whole fleets :D)
- French language translation fixes.

It will appear today (give it an hour or two) as an opt-in open beta for some community testing before rolling out for real. Hopefully this week if no problems are encountered!

Hopefully the above fixes the big issues encountered during Christmas break. More stuff will get done as we now start working on a bit bigger patch. Unfortunately I can’t really give a more detailed roadmap for you today as I had planned, because apparently there is a lot of stuff to do when everyone gets back from holidays planning wise ;) But next week I will know more and can share it with you. For everyone who has requested it though, we will be putting a much heavier emphasis on bug fixing and improvement this year. More details in next diary!

Today we don’t have a World War Wednesday stream. That will start up again next week. If you want to sate your HOI4 video craving I’m going to recommend checking out Daniel’s cool 60+ people grand multiplayer campaign he ran during Christmas. I asked him for a summary and he sent me this picture:

“Hearts of Iron 4 wields complexity like a swift armor division during the blitzkrieg, allowing it to serve the idea of layered, cerebral, strategic warfare instead of letting it needlessly bog down the experience.”
9/10 – IGN

“It captivates me because—imperfectly, impressionistically, and perhaps a little amorally—it lets me orchestrate the most titanic armed struggles in history, from the fussy economic details to the cut-and-thrust of mechanized warfare. There are other great strategic-level wargames out there. But I have never played anything like Hearts of Iron 4”
8.8/10 – PC Gamer

“For now, after many dozens of hours, I'm taking a break from Hearts of Iron 4. Not because I'm sick of it; quite the contrary, in fact. What I need to do is some serious reading, some careful planning on what my vision for the United States should be in 1936. And when I've done that planning — when I've formulated my character sheet, as it were — I have the utmost confidence that Hearts of Iron 4 will be ready for me to play a role in world affairs.”
8/10 – Polygon
