I couldn’t even get Black Ice working, it says it’s incompatible with the latest version when I tried.


My bad for not explaining that.

The BlackIce modders are still working on a "final" version compatible with MTG ver. 1.6.2.

They do however have a work in progress test version on.

I've been playing it for a week or two now.

The test version is called:

Blackice HOI4 Test

I believe that the url for this test mod is:
https://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/ ... +HOI4+Test

You should be able to find it in the Steam Workshop

Also (although I don't recall if I did anything regarding this) the screen also says:

REQUIRED ITEMS
This item requires all of the following other items
BlackICE Event-GFX

----------
I think that I had that previously downloaded.

And, as information, the creator of this test mod is "maverick".
There are a ton of 'knock off' Black Ice mods created by people who have nothing at all to do with the Black Ice mod team.

Soooo, give that a try if you want.

I presume that once they have finished their MTG update, they will eliminate the Test Version mod and load that software into the 2 normal mods that you need for Black Ice (if I am not mistaken, the two official BICE mods are "BlackICE Event-GFX" and "BlackICE Historical Immersion Mod" (but those two version currently show as broken since they have not been updated to MTG 1.6.2 yet).

But...WARNING
There is alot more management involved in Black Ice.
They have alot more equipment that you may/will need (for example---you don't just have "Infantry Equipment" (aka guns)..you have the standard rifles, but then by research you can also add SME (light infantry who use submachine guns) to your division templates, you can add "Sniper" rifles; you can add anti-tank guns (rifles, not AT cannons, which is something different).

The BlackIce mod is also more intended for a historical accuracy flavor----so if you try do do ahistorical things, you may sometimes find that things don't work.

PS There is a Black Ice channel on DISCORD.

The join link for it is:
https://discord.gg/sFzrcaG


Let me know if that does not work for you.

I saw an announcement on the Black Ice (BICE) Discord that they have released the new and improved official version ( Man the Guns compatible) of their mods.

As information, the two official mods needed to play the Black Ice version are:
BlackICE Event - GFX
BlackICE Historical Immersion Mod

I let Steam update it and am about to go in and start a new game.

PS While there are numerous other "Black Ice" mods listed in the Steam Workshop only the two above are from the BICE team and only these two are supported by them (meaning if you run into bugs while playing additional Black Ice mods you are SOL with regards to getting support from the BICE team).
