Frequently Asked Questions:
When does the mod start and end? CBtS starts in 1933 and ends in 1948.
Can I play as <path>? Our design paradigm is based around historical plausibility, so paths that are too “out there” are not going to be included. Therefore, the answer to this question depends on the plausibility of the given path.
I only see one focus tree? Where are the others? Our focus trees are dynamic, so they will appear and disappear when needed.
Why is <country> so under/overpowered? Though rebalancing is always an ongoing project, we are doing our best to ensure that the situation in-game accurately reflects the historical situation.
What is the lore for this mod? We are not an alt-history scenario. Though the game might deviate from history, the start of the game is accurate to the real 1933.
