This mod brings scornful insults from Europa Universalis IV to Hearts of Iron IV.


You can insult any country that is neither in your faction nor already at war with you.
You can send an insult every 90 days and every 6 month to the same country.

AI will also insult neighbor countries sometimes.

When you use the "Send an insult" diplomatic action, you can generate random insults and then send them.
You can also right-click on the randomize button to open a list with all valid insults that could be randomized to pick a specific insult directly.

Further more, you can also click on the button on the right, next to the randomize button, to get rid of the random insult and type your own insult. However this does only allow letters from A to Z (capital and lower case letters are allowed an work, however the font type will print them in upper case letters), numbers and a few special characters (allowed special characters are: Minus, Space, Comma, Question Mark, Apostrophe, Dot, Quotation Mark, Exclamation Mark and Round Brackets).
You can also save and load your written insults.

An insult currently has the following effects:

  • opinion of target of you changes by -50
  • world tension is increased by +0.5
  • Sender:
    • stability changes by +0.5
