National focus

From Hearts of Iron 4 Wiki
(Redirected from National Focus)
Jump to: navigation, search

Each country has a National Focus tree, representing a number of political, economic, diplomatic and research options available to that country. Each of the seven major countries - France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the Soviet Union, the United Kingdom and the United States has a unique National Focus tree. Poland got its own unique National Focus tree in a DLC released with the game. Further National Focus trees are being released later in DLCs, starting with the first expansion "Together for Victory," which includes National Focus trees for five subjects of the British crown: Australia, Canada, New Zealand, South Africa and the British Raj in India. All other countries share the generic National Focus tree.

National focuses allow the player and AI to choose various options to direct the development of their country.

National Focus Trees Overview[edit]

The Generic national focus tree has many different options.

Each country has a National Focus tree to direct its efforts. These trees include focuses covering various areas of the game: For example, France has a political tree focus to change political ideology to communism; all countries have economic focuses to build new dockyards or military or civilian factories; Germany has a diplomatic focus for the Anschluss with Austria; the UK has a focus to improve their research speed for radar.

Focuses serve as a replacement for the mixture of decisions and triggered events which directed countries in previous versions of Hearts of Iron. They also ensure that no two games will play out in precisely the same way.

The AI countries use their own National Focus trees to direct their actions. There is an option when starting a game to choose whether the AI will follow historic focuses. If historic focuses are chosen, then the game will largely follow the order of events building up to the Second World War. Disable historic focuses and there could be a much wider variation of events - for example, France might become a fascist country and join the Axis. Regardless of whether the AI uses historic focuses, players can largely shape the direction of their own country the way they want.

Only one focus can be taken at a time. Each focus costs 1 point of Political power.png Political Power (PP) per day. A Focus usually takes 70 days to complete, so generally costs 70 PP. If a focus is not taken, the PP saved can be used for other purposes including diplomacy and Government changes. An alert appears at the top of the screen if no focus is active. If a focus is chosen within 10 days, it is treated as having started when the last one ended. If later, it starts when selected.

The National Focus trees consist of a number of branches. Generally, the branches consist of a number of similar focuses. The player must start at the top of a branch and work down the tree. Each available focus has its name on a grey background. Those completed have a gold background. Those not yet available have a brown background.The top level focuses don't have any prerequisites, but those below do. The lines joining each focus on the screen indicate the prerequisites, and the tooltip for each focus also states the conditions to start that focus.

Some focuses have requirements relating to conditions outside of the National Focus tree. For example, the German Reich can only choose the focus Anschluss if the German Reich has built their armed forces to the point that they use at least 550K manpower. The focus only starts when these requirements are met, and it pauses while manpower used falls below 550K. Some other focuses will be abandoned if the circumstances change during the 70 days so that the requirements are no longer met.

Check the tooltip before starting a focus to be sure what will happen. The player can't manually stop or replace a focus once started. If abandoned, the time and PP already used are lost.

Some focuses no longer make sense later in the game, because things have happened which have changed the expected course of history. In that situation it may be possible to by-pass a focus and continue down the branch to the next focus - the tooltip will say if this is the case. For example, if Austria no longer exists, Germany may be able to by-pass the Anschluss focus and still continue on to Demand Sudetenland and after.

Some focuses can be reached by more than one route by following more than one branch. The lines linking to prerequisite focuses are dotted if only one is needed, solid if both are needed.

Some branches give a mutually exclusive choice between two focuses at the same level in a branch. These choices are shown by a double-headed arrow with a red exclamation mark between the two focuses. Only one of the two may be chosen. For example, Germany has a mutually exclusive choice between Befriend China and Befriend Japan - only one of these can be chosen, and then the other choice is excluded and further focuses depending on that excluded focus also become unavailable. These choices should be considered carefully as they can fundamentally change the direction of the country.

A number of focuses construct buildings within some states or provinces. For example, all of the National Focus trees have focuses to build more factories in some states without requiring civilian factories to build them. The states which are chosen are semi-random and listed on the tooltip. These are always owned states, and in some cases are chosen only from the home area where the capital is located. They are not built in enemy-occupied states. Each comes with its own added building slot so it does not affect the building slots otherwise available. The buildings are ready to use when the focus completes. In this way, the focuses can increase significantly the number of slots in some states, but states with type tiny island, wasteland or enclave (default zero slots) are never chosen by a focus.

France[edit]

Main article: French national focus tree

The French national focus tree can be divided into 4 branches:

Industrial branch
This branch offers the possibility to develop Metropolitan France and the overseas region, as well as two more research slots.
Defensive and aggressive branch
These branches are mutually exclusive. They end with the shard focus Army Reform icon Army Reform which removes the starting national spirit Victors of the Great WarVictors of the Great War. (This focus can only be taken after removing Disjointed GovernmentDisjointed Government via the government reform branch.)
Government Reform branch
This branch contains of various diplomatic focuses and focuses to change the ideology of the government. All possible mutually exclusive branches contain a focus to remove the crippling Disjointed GovernmentDisjointed Government national spirit.
Navy and air force branch
This branch includes focuses which grant experience and research boni to improve in these domains.


Germany[edit]

NF tree Germany.jpg

As one of the seven Major powers, Flag of German Reich German Reich has a unique National Focus tree. The National Focus tree includes both historical and counterfactual options for the player, and the AI is strongly weighted to follow the historical path when playing a "Historical Focus" game. Notable alliance opportunities are with the USSR, Poland, and the Scandinavian countries. Most of the Focuses for Germany are ultimatums for states/provinces, which may result in: acquiring territory, acquiring a war goal to obtain territory, or immediate war. The additional research tech is quite deep, requiring Industrial Effort II, Air Innovations II, and then Rocketry (among others). An Extra Research Slot becomes available should Rocketry be completed.

Should the Flag of German Reich German Reich pursue the Anschluss, the German National Focus tree provides levers for reordering Central and Northern Europe. The Flag of German Reich German Reich may make peace with or make territorial demands of Flag of Czechoslovakia Czechoslovakia, Flag of Lithuania Lithuania and Flag of Poland Poland, Flag of Yugoslavia Yugoslavia and Flag of Greece Greece, and Scandinavia. The possible levers reach from Norway and Denmark in the north to the Soviet Union in east, around through Flag of Turkey Turkey, Flag of Greece Greece, Flag of Italy Italy and Flag of Spain Spain in the south, around up through France to the low countries.

Whether controlled by the player or the AI, Germany will be dictating the course of many events in Hearts of Iron IV.

    This branch offers the possibility to develop the nation's infrastructure and factories as well as enabling up to two additional research slots.
    Prepare For The Next War
    This branch has options to keep pace/modernize the Polish ground forces with/ahead of it's neighbors.
    Air Base Expansion
    This branch includes focuses which grants several research boni to improve. First focus of the branch instantly expands state Capitol's airport capacity (Danzig).
    Develop Polish Ship Building
    This branch includes focuses which grants several research boni that could potentially specialize or widen the range of ships available for service soon. Includes research bonus for naval doctrine advancements.
    Strengthen The Polish State
    This branch contains various diplomatic focuses and focuses to change the ideology of the government. This branch has mutually exclusive choices that enables the player to forge an alliance or create one of its own.
