This work is based on my first ideas back to HOI2 and HOI1. Maybe some remember my former work released for HOI2 under the name AHOI-Mod. Also many Mods influenced somehow my ideas(And of course the game developers of Paradox itself). But still, the core overall design of "A-HOI3 - Treasure - GEM one" is based just on my own ideas and I claim the intellectual property on all the changes done in this work released as "A-HOI3 - Treasure - GEM one". This includes the copyright on this work as a whole.

Intentionally I started this work with the hope to sell it as a DLC. Therefore, this "legal note"...

As I understand the "need" of protection of intellectual property my personal opinion is in gereral like this statement from Thomas Jefferson:

"If nature has made any one thing less susceptible than all others of exclusive property, it is the action of the thinking power called an idea, which an individual may exclusively possess as long as he keeps it to himself; but the moment it is divulged, it forces itself into the possession of every one, and the receiver cannot dispossess himself of it. Its peculiar character, too, is that no one possesses the less, because every other possesses the whole of it. He who receives an idea from me, receives instruction himself without lessening mine; as he who lights his taper at mine, receives light without darkening me."


So my ideas how to change things can be rebuild by anyone, or are maybe even "invented" already by someone else in the same way or similar as I did.

As for the practical usage for now. There is no difference in usage as for every other Modification around.

Overall goals

I startetd this with the idea of having the GEM one as a foundation for many more GEM's("G(ame) E(nhancement) M(odification)) that would then enrich the "Treasure". So further GEM's should be map changes, event chains, new AI, new scenarios and so on. Every GEM should also be as modular and independent as possible, so that anybody could choose what GEM's he want in his own "Treasure".

Overall first goals of the GEM-one was:

-Have a more realistic approach and possibility of Division composition.-> New techs and new unit types. Switch to a new Regimental System

-Adding immersion trough a diversity of techs.(Tank regiment composition.. Infantry composition and others..)

-Lowering the micromanaging level. (Medium and heavy tanks used instead of light as for historic reasons and ease of use. Lights only used in Mot Cavalry or as part of Tank Regiment or Division Support as for Recon use..)

-Fewer unit types if redundant, and if wise in terms of playability.

-Giving small countries the possibility for a slight catch up to the bigger ones. ->New techs for country development..

-Adding the timescale to WW1 for the possibility of new secanrios.

-Adding decisions/events if needed for the new units and techs.

After I gained more experience with the GEM-one I wanted to expand the timeline to WW1. And as that was done, I was not that happy with the result and did again a change to the tech-system. The Idea of 1001 Techs was born.(It was already long in my head but now I had done already enough to make it happen..) Together with this step I'm also rewriting all affected files to have it all in a fine order.(It is also easier to mod then..)

So, the AHOI-Treasure is the name of the Mod, and the GEM's are its components that will hopefully build a nice Treasure of HOI3.

I hope you enjoy playing it!

Kind regards, Chromos
