Plagued /r/TNOmod and the Reddit HOI4 modding community - When a subreddit for a video game mod turns to utter insanity

Fuck Y'all

Goddamn chemicals turning freakin' frogs gay

There's never going to be an update, apparently their entire private dev server is almost dead with very little activity that isnt just stroking the egos of the lead 'developers'.

Rumour is that the leak teasers they make are not even real, they're photoshopped icons and mechanics that they're getting out to calm down their braindead fanbase. Even the fucking weeaboos do more work than them.

I love how the fanbase for this game still think that TNO 2 will come out before the Sun collapses into a black hole in billion or so years. Hell Ive seen teasers (fanmade) for "TNO 3," the universe will cool to absolute zero before that shit comes out

From what other people have said this was always the case with focus tree leaks. They call them "Skeleton trees" which have no or little programing behind them and are meant showcase what is to come. Obviously they elicit a false sense of progress though. So while skeleton trees aren't new, it's easy to believe work on TNO has stagnated beyond repair. TNO already suffered from months long internal delays, so don't wait for 6 months to call it dead. Instead, you should wait 8+. They've already released an update that adds content for the post Russian collapse if you form the Holy Russian Empire out of the original warlord states. It was two months or so ago. Something could be up, but, TNO has been extremely dysfunctional since creation.

Yeah, but iirc alot that stuff was already programmed from before it collapsed, wasn't their "1.2 update" already in the github file that got leaked (albeit in a WIP status). So basically all they did was make and release a very slight bit of extra content which is essentially unplayable (I think).

hearts of iron 4 was the worst game paradox ever put out, if for no other reason then the autism it attracts
Kaiserboos, Weaboos, Wehraboos, Tankies ....
Trully lovable fanbase /s


Post Taboritsky Warlord update was leaked about month before
they released it.

Yeah they do it for free so there is no reason for most of them to go down with sinking ship, also Barbarossa DLC will be here soon and it will break mods

Cutting Room Floor came out in November. Four months after TNO's release. CRF was supposed to be stuff that was cut last minute. It took them FOUR MONTHS to release shit that was supposed to be in 1.0

At that rate, toolbox theory is gonna release in September, at best. Accounting for the shitshow that was Febuary 2021, it's never gonna release.
Even If main mod dies they have autistic enough fanbase to continue create fan version.
They have only part of what they promised on launch. France , India Is still missing...

I would not be surprised if they're taking an incredibly long time on their Toolbox Theory (massive mechanical overhaul with economics and development because they insist on working on a shit game), as a project with a massive scope should be taking a while. What I don't get is them tying this overhaul to every single piece of content on their roadmap, which means that real development has a reason to stagnate and encourage procrastination.

I think prose work is probably continuing as normal, but I've heard that they've had people apply for coding roles and get accepted but not get on the team (no work to do apparently), which is really weird.
