Modifier Icons

Have you ever been irked by how the "production efficiency" modifiers have a little icon next to them while all the rest don't? Well, I have, so that's why I created this very simple mod inspired by the fantastic mod New Ways, which has a similar system. What this does is it basically adds pertinent icons to all modifiers, stats and some effects so they are more consistent, more appealing and easier to read and understand (in my opinion).

Since this is just a graphic mod, it is Ironman and achievement compatible, and fully updated to No Step Back. ALL languages included with HOI4 (English, Spanish, German, French, Portuguese, Polish and Russian) are supported.

Additional localisation mods (not mine):

Suggestions are obviously welcome. If you see anything that you think needs improving or fixing, feel free to say it in the comments and I'll see what I can do. In the future, I'd like to add more unique icons and hopefully fix some alignment issues caused by some icons being too wide.

I have tried this with some total conversion mods and it works (only custom modifiers, outdated modifiers and custom ideologies don't), even though it does look a tad off with some mods with different UIs such as TNO. UPDATE - a custom TNO version of this mod has been released:

It is not guaranteed to work properly as is with every mod though. If a mod overwrites the same vanilla files as this one, there may be some compatibility issues. For an interim solution until I can put together a patch, try re-enabling mod loading order in the Paradox launcher (you can easily find out how online) and set this mod in last place.

As of v1.11.10, this mod is confirmed fully compatible and tried and tested with:

- The Coming Storm

- EU4-style Ideas

- Expanded Continuous Focuses

- The Great War

- The Great War Redux

- In the Name of the Tsar

- Empire

- Kaiserredux

- The New Order: Last Days of Europe 

- Pax Britannic

- The Road to 56

- Thousand Week Reich

- Total Rebalance

- Vanilla

Hope this small mod makes your experience more enjoyable (it did for me)! If you like it, show your support! You're absolutely free to use this mod in your own collections or mods, but giving credit to this article would be appreciated.
