Strategic resources

The HoI3 expansion For The Motherland includes Strategic Resources to enhance game play.

The effects from strategic resources can be shared with other nations:

  • Major nations receive the benefits of strategic resources from any other nation within their faction
  • Faction leaders receive the benefits of strategic resources from any nation that is closely aligned to their faction so long as:
    • The aligned nation has their capital on the same continent as the faction leader
    • The aligned nation shares a coastline on the same ocean as the faction leader
