  1. DBWI: British Automobile Industry Collapses

    Possibly, though I don't know how splitting a country, especially since the south was basically a dictatorship in its short lifespan would've helped all that much beyond just having a less insane financial policy. Taiwan didn't take off all that well, and mainly only looks so good compared to...
  2. DBWI: British Automobile Industry Collapses

    Eh, each company has a clunker or a line that rightfully gets dogged on. The Cheville for example from Chevy is a notorious flop; a known fireball of a car since the first three years didn't have a proper firewall to fit the body; a consequence of trying to keep engine speed and performance due...
  3. DBWI: British Automobile Industry Collapses

    Ah, the thread definitely exploded while I was gone. My dad's first car actually was my gramp's Donkey; fought in the War and tended to the Kubels that were being used to supplement the lack of support vehicles for the invasion. Brought one of the '53 models home and took my grandma on it for...
  4. DBWI: British Automobile Industry Collapses

    So on my way home, I had the joy of being behind a small convoy of tractor trailers. A bit annoying due to the lights, but it got me thinking when I noticed they mostly had the Leyland crests: what if the British car and truck industry went the way of several European countries' automotive...
  5. DBWI: Explain this map of France

    True, the Franchise Expansion helped more with sucking the oxygen out of the room in the long run, since it loosened the definition of Frenchness and gave out more rights to the native Berber and Arab peoples. If you spoke French with good fluency, you were French. It's why serious efforts to...
  6. DBWI: Explain this map of France

    If I had to guess the reason, maybe the UK was more reconcilliatory and that's why it wasn't occupied? I don't know why that would be the case, but it's the only thing I could think of. The only other option is somehow another major like the US or Brazil steps in, but I can't see that. The US...
  7. DBWI: Explain this map of France

    OOC: I really can't see this part make any sense given that this requires everything to happen exactly as OTL despite the very obvious crippling preventing something like this from feasibly happening. IC: Uh... are you sure you're not thinking of the Deluge? Because the main instigator of the...
  8. DBWI: Explain this map of France

    Them not having Rhenanie as a department is easily doable, since that wasn't confirmed until 1953 and a Second War to have it official, and even then you had Volkisch terrorists until the 1980s. Also required a lot of population movements that are controversial to this day. Until the War, it was...
  9. Det som går ned må komme opp-An Alternate Royal Norwegian Navy TL

    I just don't see how they can be supplied by worse transport planes on just one airfield for long tbh. Especially if their numbers are increasing.
  10. America Invicta: A TL

    I'd even understand it too, though I imagine the insurgency would get lower intensity without as easy a route to send supplies. And yeah, I think Mobutu died rather than Lumumba. I think, since who knows, maybe the soviets did kill their proxy to get a more marxist one; lord knows they've done...
  11. DBWI: Irrigated Central Asia

    If I had to guess, it depends on how the soviets handled the two biggest challenges with geoengineering: evaporation and salination of the water due to the evaporation revealing and releasing minerals from the soil that the water then dissolves into it. These problems are compounded when the...
  12. ...Those Marvelous Tin Fish: The Great Torpedo Scandal Avoided

    Is there a story only thread or a remake with proper threadmarks then? I legit get lost trying to figure out what isn't just technical details and what is story to be honest, and I've skimmed through about 10 pages worth to try and find it. I honestly thought this thread just became a slugging...
  13. ...Those Marvelous Tin Fish: The Great Torpedo Scandal Avoided

    Color me lost, but... what is this thread about now at this point? Is the story still updating under a new person and because of that is unlabeled, or is it all just minutiae and arguments on tiny details at this point? Not trying to be a jerk, but I've been lost for around 20 or so pages...
  14. DBWI: Transistor delayed

    Telemetry computers did exist though; von Braun and to a lesser degree Goddard did have ground computers that'd radio in and adjust rockets. This purpose was negated though by the late thirties, when miniaturization allowed for simple computers to be put into things like torpedoes and later on...
  15. DBWI: Transistor delayed

    Vacuum tubing would've been more eponymous for longer too, though they still were used to a degree in most machines (since while more finicky, they were still much cheaper than the sandwich transistor) until the early 50s or so, since the usage of silicon wasn't really easily done until the...
  16. DBWI: Transistor delayed

    It likely would've been at least a decade before the sandwich transistor was invented, which would have delayed quite a few advances from electromechanical computers to pure electronic. This means a lot of things, such as fire control systems being notably larger on ships made during the 1930s...
  17. The Divided States of America -- An Alternate History Setting

    Oh no, I said that your POD should be further back. Like 1901 back. Having a lot less reform and social programs (ie bread and circuses) are great ways to forment instability and revolution. Then have a bust in the 20s and drag it out a bit, socialist revolt kick in by the 30s, have it partially...
  18. The Divided States of America -- An Alternate History Setting

    I think that there is not a single way possible to make your Pepper or whoever you have president last his caretaker term if he tried to force reparations, since that goes even beyond bussing, which in itself was not liked in much of the country at the time and a good way to struggle with votes...
  19. Mario Goes Hollywood: A Collaborative Timeline

    I vote for Sheeva between the two out of the lot. Shit, I just realized you can also have Kitana and Rain fighting over Edenia too on top of this.
  20. Mario Goes Hollywood: A Collaborative Timeline

    I'd like Brandon Lee as Sub-zero, but I will agree that he'd work better as the younger brother that replaces the old one... or you could have him be the old one and have him stay on if they create Noob Saibot as a nod to the Crow as a person who came back from the dead. Either that or Scorpion...
