A Mod, short for modification, is an alteration of the game files to change the game's functionality.

Installation[edit]

Mods can be installed manually from sources such as the Paradox Forums, or installed automatically via the Steam Workshop. Manually downloaded mods should include a .mod text file along with a folder. If so, the files can simply be dropped into the mod file. If one is downloading a newer version of a mod they already have installed, one should remove the older files first.

The folder that stores mods for the game is

  • Windows: ...\Documents\Paradox Interactive\Hearts of Iron IV\mod\
  • GNU/Linux: ~/.local/share/Paradox Interactive/Hearts of Iron IV/mod/
  • Mac: ~/Documents/Paradox Interactive/Hearts of Iron IV/mod/
