Hi everyone,

With the release of the new update the Cold War Mod seems to be crashing (s/didn't see that coming /s). Right now I have some other priorities which I must attend to which means that it may be a while before I update the mod to work with No Step Back.

Sorry for the inconvenience but at this point I am practically working on this thing alone and balancing that with real life, the YouTube channel and other things takes its toll.

A great alternative mod for the cold war! Up to date, uncluttered, and optimized to a low GB unlike CW:IC. Great for casual players and potato PC alike. 8/10

Great mod but some things with the Soviet focus tree make no sense, Stalin was the biggest advocate for a united neutral Germany so why punish the player by reducing support for aut communism if choosing to pick that option
