    Anyone else playing this mod? I can't work out why I can't do a particular national focus and need advice.

    What national focus? Also they've a quite active discord so you should probably try there too.

    Help to fellow ponies. The Changelings are at war with Equestria and the Crystal Empire, I've sent volunteers, lease-lend equipment and finally declared war on the Changelings myself but I still can't do the focus.

    Well, I went on Reddit and got a reply from the mod maker. The problem has been fixed. Unfortunately, the thing which is supposed to make Equestria reward you for your participation by giving you some land doesn't appear to work, though that might be because the coup attempt I made against the Changling Hives lead to the United Hives getting all Changling and Olenian territory without a Peace Conference when we won the war.

    Okay, new question: how do I put jet bombers on my carriers? As far as I can see I'm only allowed to put fighters, CAS and naval bombers on there, and two of those have flipping propellers.

    The HOI 4 wiki might help... https://hoi4.paradoxwikis.com/Ship#Carrier_air_wings

    So, my first suggestion would be to make sure yourjet bombers are actually carrier ready.

    There doesn't appear to be an option to research a carrier variant.

    And... There's no way to tell the planes to attack anything the ship carrying them sees? Because as far as I can tell there's no point in having carriers. I might as well go all-small ship patrol fleets and just use land-based planes.

    Jet Fighters can't be used for Carrier purposes. The best you can use is Carrier Fighter IIIs.
    The role of Carriers is to make use of CAS/Naval Bombers againsts other ships while the Fighters keep away any airforce sent to defend the sea itself, or even fighters from an enemy Carrier.
