- For information on the structure and making of mods, see modding
A Mod, short for modification, is an alteration of the game files to change the game's functionality.
The folder that stores mods for the game is
...\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Hearts of Iron IV\mod\
~/.local/share/Paradox Interactive/Hearts of Iron IV/mod/
~/Documents/Paradox Interactive/Hearts of Iron IV/mod/
Manually downloaded mods should include a .mod text file along with a folder. If so, the files can simply be dropped into the mod folder. If one is downloading a newer version of a mod they already have installed, one should remove the older files first.
Mods with Wiki pages
- Wiki pages for modifications are the responsibility of the modification team, not the Paradox wiki team
