Box colour[edit]

I do think the blue is a tad too dark for the logo. As screenshots roll out, I'm thinking we could try and come up with a more unifying and fitting background colour/texture for these things? --• General Baker Flag of United Kingdom (Talk) • 00:25, 24 January 2014 (CET)

Dark orange seems to be the main color of the box art. Would that work? Medibee (Talk | Contribs) 18:53, 24 January 2014 (CET)
I don't think orange would work particularly well. Nice thing about the blue though is that it gives a consistency between the wikis. ~ Meneth (talk) 18:54, 24 January 2014 (CET)

Version Number[edit]

We should use a consistent version number across all pages. Some places the game are named Hearts of Iron 4 while on others it is Named Hearts of Iron IV. PDS officially call the game Hearts of Iron IV. Example ~ Sn3ipen (talk) 17:12, 25 January 2014 (CET)

I prefer using the number 4, as Google Trends has shown quite clearly that that's what people search for. See EU4 as an example. ~ Meneth (talk) 17:15, 25 January 2014 (CET)

Release date[edit]

The release date has been changed to late Q2 2015. Can you please mention this on the main page, Meneth. – Lillebror (talk) 18:24, 20 January 2015 (CET)

Done. ~ Meneth (talk) 18:25, 20 January 2015 (CET)

Icons[edit]

Is there any chance we can talk to Paradox about getting access to small versions of the in-game icons that have been revealed in the dev diaries for use on this wiki, a la what's been done on the EU4 one? --Deoradhan (talk) 19:18, 9 February 2015 (CET)

I'll ask about it. ~ Meneth (talk) 20:03, 9 February 2015 (CET)
Icons have now been added. Haven't figured out a fitting icon for Ideas, and not 100% happy with the icons for Government and Countries, but it works well enough for now. ~ Meneth (talk) 13:57, 12 February 2015 (CET)

Countries[edit]

Should various production of Resources be added (for example in the infobox top right, and an entry under Production)? Should also ruling party (1936) be added to the same Infobox? Example is Portugal, who I believe produce Tungsten, and whose leader was Oscar Carmona--Simen113 (talk) 00:03, 18 January 2016 (CET)

After release, the info box will have ideology, which essentially covers ruling party.
I don't think there'd be much point to including their resource production. ~ Meneth (talk) 00:10, 18 January 2016 (CET)
Alright. I've tried to add some articles and create a framework. If anything does not fit, feel free to merge and move. Trying to contribute, and create a fully fleshed out Wiki :)--Simen113 (talk) 00:14, 18 January 2016 (CET)
There should be a section for the cities that give that country flavor events, e.G. taking London or Paris as Germany — Preceding unsigned comment added by 81.171.56.165 (Talk) 00:39, 19 July 2016‎ (CEST)

"About this game"[edit]

Minor change to wording need; "useful for both new and experienced players and for modders." should read "useful for both new and experienced players as well as for modders." Minor change I know, but the triple and doesn't read well. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zankoas (Talk) 22:35, 11 May 2016‎ (CEST)

Done. ~ Meneth (talk) 22:36, 11 May 2016 (CEST)

Beginners Guide?[edit]

I page called Beginners Guide was just added, maybe it should be linked on the home page? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Zankoas (Talk) 17:41, 24 May 2016 (CEST)

Done. ~ Meneth (talk) 22:03, 24 May 2016 (CEST)

National Focus vs National focus[edit]

There is a much worse version of the National Focus page listed on the homepage links as National focus (lowercase f is the distinction between the pages) Can someone switch the link over the newer and far better one? — Preceding unsigned comment added by Adil3tr (Talk) 22:35, 2 June 2016 (CEST)

Moved the larger page's content onto the correct article name. ~ Meneth (talk) 22:37, 2 June 2016 (CEST)

Countries Link[edit]

Shouldn't there be a link to the countries page from here? Feels strange that it's on the front page of other wikis and not this one. Plus, not many other ways to access it without just searching it up. — Preceding unsigned comment added by ThaneOfTheRift (Talk) 23:52, 2 June 2016‎ (CEST)

Adding a ton of countries[edit]

I'll be adding a bunch of information for all the countries not covered yet. I've gotten Albania, Belgium, Ethiopia and Austria done at the time of this post. - Hunter9502

Spam[edit]

Some guy spam-edited a bunch of pages, I've tried reverting them but it's given me a limit. Anyone want to help out? — Preceding unsigned comment added by 24.13.2.86 (talk) 05:16, 3 September 2016 (CEST)

Many thanks! – Lillebror (talk) 07:46, 3 September 2016 (CEST)

Latest developer diary (Oct 12) links to the wrong thread[edit]

Fixed. Thanks for your hint. – Lillebror (talk) 19:10, 13 October 2016 (CEST)

Confused on how to change country names.[edit]

So I am doing a project on the crusades and was going to use the hoi4 map to display how it all occurred. In order to do this though, I need to change several countries names. I have looked around on google and they all mention notepad or notepad++ and mention changing/adding some code to it, but they never say that that code might be, or where it is that I need to change it. So I was wondering if anyone here knew, and could help me. Thanks lots. — Preceding unsigned comment added by CountrySideDonkey (Talk) 17:38, 20 October 2017‎ (CEST)

Register your game on the forums to access the modding sub-forum. The modders are quite friendly and you'll have a better chance of getting the required help there. ~ SolSys (talk) 21:49, 21 October 2017 (CEST)

Dev Diary links to the wrong thread[edit]

I noticed the latest dev diary (#20, Japan Rework) links to dev diary 19 instead. This is only a problem on the front page though. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Mordekai99 (talk) 21:49, 6 January 2018‎ (CET)

Fixed, thanks for the spot. Dauth (talk) 00:12, 7 January 2018 (CET)

Excavator[edit]

The gray icon shown on the Construction-button in the Main Menu Bar is called a "crane" (see Beginner´s Guide under "Construction"). In fact on the button an excavator is depicted.

If in doubt, please check for pictures of 1930s excavator models in google.

Please replace "crane" with "excavator". — Preceding unsigned comment added by 85.199.242.188 (talk) 13:44, 19 February 2018‎ (CET)

Done. Thanks for your hint. – Lillebror (talk) 09:29, 21 February 2018 (CET)

1.5.2[edit]

Shouldn't we add 1.5.2? --73.29.107.20 20:55, 24 March 2018 (CET)

When the release is official and complete and not in beta. Dauth (talk) 20:59, 24 March 2018 (CET)

Dev Diary wrong again[edit]

Latest diary link points to the previous one, as opposed to 1084627 which is the current one. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Joald (talk) 19:06, 30 March 2018‎ (CEST)

Well spotted. Fixed. Dauth (talk) 19:07, 30 March 2018 (CEST)
Sorry, it seems I have developed a tendency to miss the last remaining part to change. ~ SolSys (talk) 11:06, 31 March 2018 (CEST)

The releasable crisis[edit]

The new Dev diary has announced 59 new releasables. Because of this releasables are no longer irrelevant. However this Wiki still lacks info about the releasables we have right now. If nothing is done the wiki will be overwhelmed when Man the Guns is out. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 96.32.205.32 (talk) 06:30, 12 July 2018‎ (CEST)

Releasable nations are not (and were not) viewed as "irrelevant" as you put it, rather the same policy which applies to all other nations applies to them as well -- they need to have some content to them to justify maintaining their own page. Said content could be in-game unique content [events, missions, decisions, etc.] or user-created content -- by this we mean up-to-date guides which follow the style guide (usually at least 2 weeks are given to polish lacking guides so it does not have to be perfect from the start). Regardless, the releasables will continue to be listed on the countries article with the rest of the nations. ~ SolSys (talk) 10:40, 13 July 2018 (CEST)

Overhaul of Warfare link section[edit]

The warfare section under "Important pages" has various problems in my opinion:

  • it contains things that are not warfare:
    • terrain
    • weather
    • army planner
  • it invents names that are not used in the game
    • combat tactics (tactic)
    • "Army planner" (Deployment queue)
    • "land units" (division)
    • "naval units" (ship)
    • "air units" (aircraft)
    • "command group" (army)
  • inconsistent grouping

My proposal (minus the bullet points):
