Napoleon's Legacy

An alternate history mod for Victoria 2

Built off of HPM


Either download the mod as a zip folder or copy over the Napoleon's Legacy folder and .mod file to your mod folder.

Or, download the mod via git in your terminal by doing:

git clone --depth=1
cd mod && python

To download the mod before an update is released, change the clone command to:

git clone --depth=1 -b development

or change the branch to development and download as a zip folder.


The events covered by the mod since the POD are documented here.

The history of the mod is open to change as it is developed and the scenario is further developed.


Thanks to the people at /gsg/ for creating a new frontend background, providing feedback on ideas, and just being /gsg/.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
