This mod is about famous classical music and the HOI series classical music. Samples of the music are above.
This is the General music mod which includes the entire collection of the original music for HOI 1, HOI 2, HOI 3, and HOI 4 – without the DLC music. There are also some added in classical music songs such as Night on Bald Mountain, the title song for World War II in Color, and Beethoven’s 6th Symphony. This is meant to play with my music or any other music mod out there.
There are 202 songs included in this mod, broken down into 100 war songs, 83 peace songs, and 19 original HOI 4 songs.
The reason for including HOI 4 music is because keeping the original coding, it would not ever play in the game with my music mods. The DLC music if you have it, will play alongside this music since they already gave it a much higher chance to play up to factor 3. The originals had factor 1 which along with mine of factor 3 means you wouldn’t hear them.
These songs are for all nations in the game, and if cultural or faction music hasn’t been added by my music mods for your nation, or others, you will have added music from this one. It is up to you if you want it to play alongside my East Asian mod since the East Asian mod immerses the player in complete East Asian music, and that can at times be quite unimmersive with western classical music.
These songs are meant to immerse the player into the feel, theme, and setting with the music that was played at the time. Military music both played by military bands, and music from movies, as well as video games have a strong presence here too. Civilian music dominates during peace time, and then when at war, historical military music, or music created for since the war to fit that nation and theme then dominate. In the case of this mod that is about classical music, the general theme is of course Western Civilization, and some of the great composers from Bach to Two Steps From Hell are here.
The Hoi4 Music Project will have nearly 3000 songs with originals from 1913 up to the end of the game time of 1948. Many songs will be from the 30s and 40s, but many songs will also be made for the period in question such as from Band of Brothers, or movies like Dunkirk. The entire collection of music has been gathered together for nearly all of the combatants in World War II. Now with Civilization music! From Civilization 3 to 6 now in all of my music mods.
Now, all of my individual music mods have been released! The HOI4 Music Project consists of: East Asian Music, General Music, European Axis Music, Allies Music, Latin Nations Music, Comintern Music, and USA Music mods. The final plan is to put them all together into one massive music mod! This latter idea does not have a date set, since as of right now it was time consuming enough to create these seven mods as it was. It will get done when it will get done!
All music is set to play for their proper dates, so if a song historically came out in 1941, it will not play until then for the nation/language it was created in. Same languages share civilian music amongst each other, while military music is specific for that nation. The exception to this would be US music only being shared with Canada.
This mod is around 800 MB, so make sure you have space. All together, the HOI4 Music Project will be over 6 GB. So it has been broken up into specific regions and alliances such as the UK, Commonwealth, and France all in one. I originally began gathering music back in 2004, and in early 2018 I made it my mission to gather as many as I could to fit together into the ultimate music mod. In total, this was such an ambitious project, that it took me months to gather, and hammer out the bugs I’ve run into.
Let me know if there is an error, like if a song doesn’t play, or has the wrong title attached to it. I’ve done my best to mod and research the songs that are added, to get everything done correctly but something’s may have slipped past.
If anyone feels that there is an essential song missing, please let me know. I am open to suggestions.
Disclaimer: This mod cannot be used in YouTube videos since you would get a lot of hits by claims, and is meant for personal use only.
