    Threadmarks: Introdution

    A new project from the depths of my tired brain. Originally a one off map based on an idea soon turned into it's own project I've shared on discord and both Wikibox, Map, and personal threads, after thinking about it I think making it's own thread just creates less clutter for both...

  5. WI: Accidental Nuclear War in 2014

  10. Better Hungarian economy after Cold War

    After the Cold War, the economy of Hungary experienced a serious setback, when it shifted its economy back to being market-based, which was made even worse with the industry-killing wild-privatisation. If the shift would have went a bit more smoothly and after that, the reckless...
  11. What if Operation Northwoods went ahead?

    In 1962 Operation Northwoods was proposed in response to Cuba being under communist rule.
