''Modern Day Scenario II'' is a popular ''HeartsOfIron II: Doomsday'' modification that brings the UsefulNotes/WorldWarII-era video game to the TurnOfTheMillennium and the events of TheWarOnTerror. Currently in beta for Darkest Hour 1.03, it is one of the most extensive conversions of ''Hearts of Iron II'' undertaken, with dozens of new countries, hundreds of new technologies and thousands of new events, ministers, graphics and models.

This GameMod provides examples of:
* AnonymousRinger: ''Extremely'' averted. Every nation on Earth is present (aside from micronations like Liechtenstein and the Vatican), with numerous projects by fans and modders in order to attempt to make their ministerial cabinets, events and military leaders as accurate as possible
* ArabSpring: Through this isn't in the original mod for HOI2 since it was released before 2011, the latest version of Darkest Hour contains some events related to the Middle East revolutions in Egypt, Libya and Syria. The original product itself had a fantasy scenario where radical Islamist groups(including Al-Quada in Egypt) seize power due to blowback against a hypothetical US attack on Iran in the mod itself.
* AussiesWithArtillery
* BritsWithBattleships
* ChineseWithChopperSupport
* UsefulNotes/TheEuropeanUnion: One of the game's three alliances, though it was merged into {{NATO}} in 1.6. There are Cheatfiles that allow them to fully federalzie as well
* GaulsWithGrenades
* GreyAndGreyMorality: Obviously, [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgement and that is all that will be said]]
* IsraelisWithInfraredMissiles
* KaijuDefenseForce
* MiddleEasternCoalition: The Islamic Alliance, a third alliance replacing the European Union (which in turn replaced the Comintern and will be partly merged with the Coalition of the Willing into {{NATO}}), which rather peculiarily seems to be led by the Shiite Iran and can consist of both Sunni and Shiite nations(The mod implies that it may be an inferred EnemyMine against the US and Israel through).
* MnogoNukes
* MythologyGag: One of Russia's options in response to Litivenko's whistleblowing is "It's probably just harmless talk," just like in the infamous White Lotus Rebellion event in ''VideoGame/EuropaUniversalis II''.
* {{NATO}} (Replaced the Coalition of the Willing in 1.6, which in turn replaced the Allies)
* NoCampaignForTheWicked (Regardless of your view on who is "the wicked", this trope will be averted, seeing as it is following the HeartsOfIron tradition of allowing players to take command of virtually any nation on Earth)
* PeaceThroughSuperiorFirepower
* UsefulNotes/PersiansWithPistols
* RealLifeWritesThePlot (Played with, while most events of the 21st century are accurately portrayed, it goes into alternate history with the Orange Revolution causing a Civil War in Ukraine and Romania going to war with Moldavia)
* RussiansWithRustingRockets
* ShanghaiCooperationOrganisation (One of the game's three alliances, replacing the Axis)
* SouthAfricansWithSurfaceToAirMissiles
* BritsWithBattleships
* UltimateDefenceOfTheRealm
* TankGoodness
* TheUltimateResistance
* TheWarOnTerror (The game starts on 23 March 2003 with the US invasion of Iraq.)
* WorldWarIII (In this case, between the ShanghaiCooperationOrganisation and {{NATO}}, starting around 2008-9.)
* TurnOfTheMillennium (Though the game is planned to extend to [[TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture 2019]].)
* YanksWithTanks
