It's the TACOs color scheme. I use he version on this page. https://www.alternatehistory.com/discussion/showthread.php?t=264900&page=10Interesting, do you have a full version of that colour scheme?
I agree. We really need to decide a new bread can be started only when the old read is on page 500 or more.He always does. In my opinion only mods should be allowed to do it since they can close the old thread right away as well, but that's just me.
How did Germany retain entire East Prussia including Danzig (it seems), but lost entire Silesia?
1. ISIS was mostly defeated in Iraq and Syria by 2017, with Iraq begrudgingly handing over greater autonomy to the Sunni regions. The Kurds became de facto independent before formally leaving in 2020. Syria never recovered fully from the Civil War. Saudi Arabia descended into chaos after the oil economy collapsed and a power struggle broke out among the Saudi royals. NATO was able to set up a shaky democratic Republic based out of Hejaz, but are menaced by Islamic State in the Arabian Penninsula (ISAP) in the south. Yemen basically turned into Somalia. Overall, things have only become worse here.Interesting map. I have some questions though, that is, if you made a backstory.
- What happened to the Middle East in general? Specifically Saudi Arabia?
- What happened to Ukraine?
- What happened to Pakistan?
- Why is Italy split in two?
- What happened to North Korea?
- Is that a Latgale separatist republic I see....?
This map is for the current, ongoing, MOTF (that is, MOTF 111).
In addition to an early establishment of a Portuguese colony in the Cape, there is a far earlier discovery of gold at the witwatersrand basin (which prompts a gold rush of sorts).
Here's the most recent map for my Reverse Map Game (hosted on the Wiki) called Diversa Pars. This map, for the year 1972, is made my Saturn120.
Command & Conquer
In 1924, Adolf Hitler, the leader of the German NSDAP, mysteriously disappears. Without him, the entire Nazi Party collapses, and after a failed communist insurrection the Weimar Republic stands. However, in a few decades Berlin, and the rest of Europe, will have to face another threat: the Soviet Union. Sensing weakness in the Western powers, Stalin takes his chance to spread socialism to many countries through the force of arms. After taking the Baltic States and starting a war against the White remnants in Finland, the Red Army invades Poland in 1941. Stalin is immediately greeted with declarations of war from the Allies of Britain, France and Germany. Soviet forces advance quickly through Europe, before being stopped by the Allies on the Rhine. When American support comes in 1943, the Allies begin to turn back the Soviets, first liberating Italy and Greece, then mounting a major counteroffensive against the Soviets through the North German Plain. The Soviets were driven back to Moscow, where Stalin was killed in the fighting. The remaining Soviet leadership signed an unconditional surrender with the Allies.
The Allies placed Alexander Romanov, a distant relative of the Romanovs ruling in Finland, in power. A man who promised peace and cooperation with the West, Romanov seemed a good choice for leading a post-Stalin USSR. This would prove to be a costly mistake. In truth, Romanov despised the Allies, and only cooperated with them as a means of gaining complete control over the USSR. The Soviets surreptitiously supported communist revolts around the world, the most devastating to the Allies being the fall of Mexico and the formation of the Mesoamerican Soviet Republic. The Soviets formed the World Socialist Alliance, ostensibly as a humanitarian organization and an ideological complement to the Allies, but in truth formed against them. The time came in 1972, and Romanov launched his invasion of the United States, using Soviet forces in Mexico. Armed with new Tesla technology, and the Psychic Corps of the mysterious Yuri, the Soviets managed to make major gains against the Allies both in North America and in Europe.
Further complicating matters was war in the East. The Empire of Japan, a minor Allied power during the Second World War, entered into a militaristic phase in the intervening years. Strange and terrible new technologies, such as nanotechnology and wave force weapons, were developed to transform the Japanese military into one of the most advanced fighting forces in the world. Taking as many bits and pieces of East Asia as they could, the Japanese used the Allies' weakness during the Soviet attack to launch their own invasion of the Allied territories and China.
By 1974, the Soviets were at the gates of Washington and captured Paris. The Allies were desperate, and in their desperation, President Michael Dugan made a deal with the devil. He recognized Japan's conquests in the East, muscling his European allies into agreeing to the same, and in exchange the Japanese would turn on their Soviet co-belligerents. Having no love for the Soviets, the Japanese agreed, and launched a surprise attack against Soviet forces in the far east. The surprised Soviets withdrew their forces from their offensives, and those Soviet divisions left behind to consolidate their gains were smashed to pieces by the Allied counterattack. However, the tired Allied armies and a Japanese army ill-equipped for a major land war could not maintain their offensives into the Soviet heartland itself. When Romanov began to consider negotiations, his advisor, Yuri, took psychic control of Romanov. During the Battle of Moscow, Allied forces weakened Yuri and captured Romanov, who upon his liberation decried Yuri as a traitor and sought an immediate peace with the Allies to fight this new threat. The last phases of WWIII involved the Allies, Soviets and Japanese hunting those forces loyal to Yuri. Yuri fled to Antarctica, where he may plot without the other nations interfering.
The post-WWIII peace was tense, and none of the three major powers trusted one another. To prevent another European war, the European Allies (sans the UK) formed the European Union, with the express purpose of creating a European superpower that can counter the Soviet Union in case of war. The victory of the Chinese communists in 1984, the Brazilian communists in 1987, the collapse of India in 1985, and the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1980, all brought the world closer to WWIV.
In 1997, history changed in Italy, when a meteor carrying an alien crystal landed on the banks of the Tiber River. Referred to as Tiberium, this crystalline substance quickly became a popular building material as it leeches heavy minerals out of the surrounding soil. Tiberium spread rapidly throughout southern Europe, and was even imported into the Middle East by the local despots. It was at this time that the Brotherhood of Nod was formed, taking advantage of its intricate knowledge of Tiberium to make a pretty profit off Tiberium mining operations around the world. Led by the enigmatic Kane, Nod seemed to pop out of nowhere. However, Tiberium would prove to be a curse, not a blessing. Tiberium’s mutagenic properties became widely known by 1999, and so Allies and Soviets moved to contain its spread. This began a secret war against Nod cells, which continued to spread Tiberium around the region, destabilizing countries and taking control. In response, the great powers formed the Global Defense Initiative, or GDI. Only the use of Allied cryotechnology and force of arms against Nod created some stability in Europe, but the Middle East would suffer. In the meanwhile, the Chinese communists split from the Soviet Union, and began to pursue their own goals.
Ever since the end of WWII, the Middle East has been a battleground for Allied and Soviet influence. This has led to many brutal dictatorships receiving support from one of the two blocs, which in turn led to deep-seated resentment against both powers. To counter Allied and Soviet influence, and to bring strength back to the Islamic world, the Global Liberation Army was formed. Intending to work past ethnic differences and the different sects of Islam, the GLA had two goals in mind: overthrow the local dictators and establish a Middle Eastern superpower. In these goals, the GLA was surprisingly effective, as support from Nod and the instability caused by Tiberium allowed them to subvert local governments and forge their great empire. WWIV would begin in 2003 when the GLA attacked Soviet, Chinese and Allied bases around the Middle East, leading to those three powers declaring war against them and their Nod allies. While the GDI forces initially crushed any opposition, the use of advanced Nod technology prevented the GLA from collapsing completely. Continued terror attacks stalled the war, and by 2006 it was a quagmire.
The war would shift in focus with the Scrin invasion. The aliens who had seeded Earth with Tiberium in the first place, the Scrin harvesting force believed they would encounter a dead world. However, their timing was off, and only a few areas of the world was devastated by Tiberium. Deciding to use the element of surprise, the Scrin attacked human forces indiscriminately, which in turn set aside their differences to attack the Scrin. Faced with a surprisingly technologically advanced foe, the Scrin were driven back to the most Tiberium-infested portions of the planet, as it was only those areas where human forces were unable to successfully operate. When the Scrin attacks stopped, humanity decided not to go for the kill, and instead focus on rebuilding from the devastation.
It is the year 2013, and it seems that the world will soon fight another world war. The Allies remain the top dogs, a powerful alliance of dubiously democratic states. But the United States is suffering: after the questionable election of President Howard Ackerman in 2012, a series of revolts calling itself the Enclave began throughout the United States. The Americans have asked for, and received, Allied assistance against this rebellion, which has possible Nod ties. The military leadership of the Soviet Union, a relatively minor participant in WWIV, see an opportunity to recreate the prestige of the World Socialist Alliance, but first they must crush the GLA-supported rebellions in Central Asia. The Japanese got off relatively scot-free in the war against the Scrin, and their militaristic leaders see a greater threat in the rising Chinese dragon. Nod and the GLA have broken over issues of religion and the role of Tiberium in the world, and have begun their own war in Africa. The Nod AI, CABAL, has his own ideas about how to fight Nod’s wars. The GDI, split between rival powers, remains largely powerless, but GDI Director Lia Kinsburg has a few plans to change that. In Antarctica, the ageless Yuri makes designs for a Tiberium-powered psychic dominator, something powerful enough to bring the entire world under his will. To top it all off, the Scrin request for reinforcements has been processed, and another fleet will soon be arriving to the Sol System to relieve the local Scrin forces. The world has already suffered from four world wars. Who knows if it will survive another?
What is that...I don't even know what to call it! A Confederate Empire?
And did the British move to Northern Africa? And what's that at Southern Africa?
A Confederate Empire? More like; the Supremacy of America.
As for North Africa, yes that is the British-in-exile. More specifically, the Empire of North Africa.
Meanwhile in South Africa, that's the Drakan Federation.
Around the early 1950's.
Judging from what this appears to be, I'm unsure whether you should be happy that they're wanked.
Seems like another world war should be taking place between the "supremacy of America" and the "USSAsia".
Well, considering that in '45, they just came out of the Eurasian War, neither the Supremacy nor the League of Democratic Nations, want another war. Not with the risk of Nuclear MAD being a factor.
Meh, America being wanked is cool and all, but imagine the public issues you would have to deal with when the people want independence (like, say, India and such.) And France. Just...France.
