What are the most popular TV shows or movies in each of the Australian countries?
Give me a little while to think about that. Pop culture isn’t my strong suit.
Thanks a lot! Don’t worry, more is on its way. My current project is taking longer than I’d expected, but it should be ready soon! In the meantime to tide everyone over, have this map of mainland Australasia’s rail system I made in ten minutes while I was bored. Place names not included.
Here it is at last! It took me waaay too long, but I’ve finally finished what I was working on: an alternate AH.com page from this universe, discussing Germany in the aftermath of the World War, hopefully answering some of your questions about Germany, especially @Bennett! There’s a lot here that I’ve hinted at but not properly explained (eg in signatures, references and others), so feel free to ask!
DISCLAIMER: None of the characters depicted below are intended to mirror or suggest any real life characters, except for the Moderator, which is inspired by the wonderful @CalBear. Any other similarities are entirely coincidental.
After this I plan to cover Russia, and then the Indonesian region probably, while working on a couple of other long-term projects. I’ll be happy to take any requests or questions though, so don’t stay quiet!
Ah, some context for this "Silent War" we've been hearing whispers of. I'm assuming the Bergen Conference ended TTL's equivalent of WW2? Nice read!
Of course, CalBear is an interdimensional time-traveler!
Well, it can’t be silent if you’re talking loudly about it!
The Bergen Conference is kind of like an ATL Potsdam Conference, in that it finalised the post-war plan for Europe and set out aims regarding the war in the Pacific, and also that the main powers started to really hate each other. But obviously there are different key players on both sides, and so the result turned out differently.
And you know how I said I'd do Russia?
I had a bit of spare time and instead of working on what I said I'd do or answering questions, I made a map of Antarctica ITTL.
Antarctica is divided into ten different polities, with nine nations claiming portions, plus a Union of Nations mandate around the South Pole, administered directly by the UoN, similarly to Jerusalem. However, 18 nations operate bases on the continent, usually within the zones of friendly nations. They are as follows (countries with actual territory in bold):
Large stars show major Antarctic bases; many of these now have permanent populations. Smaller stars are other scientific bases, sometimes staffed for only part of the year, and only for scientific purposes. A major base is also situated at the South Pole.
How did china get their Antarctic territory?
BTW how did you make this? I was thinking of doing this for The Yankee Dominion.
Something with editing the source code maybe?
iggy is a pretty funny name for a forum user.
Yep. I did it by manually editing the source code in Chrome with the inspect element tool, which can get a bit slow, but it works. I was inspired by looking back through some old OFC posts and going from one @Kanan did, although judging by how quickly she turns things out, she might have a different method. Once you get the hang of it though, it’s pretty straightforward.
Yep. I’ve spent too long looking at the wikibox thread, and then I ran out of names. So ... yeah.
Because it just isn't Australia without a leadership spill...
I've update the world map (yet again), for hopefully the last retcon.
Revised borders in the Horn of Africa
Revised borders in Libya
Revised Romanian-Hungarian border
Revised borders and geopolitical situation in the Balkans (I find the new version more interesting, and about as plausible as the old)
Added internal borders for Germany, France and the Balkan Democratic Federation
Some aesthetic stuff to do with nation colours and internal borders
Don't worry though, actually interesting stuff is on its way!
So is Kevin Rudd going to start sniping, appear on the ABC in some weird documentary down the line bagging out Bowen as well as be a condescending prick in this timeline also?
Actually interesting stuff incoming!
Occasionally, when I get bored, I go and read the travel advice from the Australian Foreign Affairs Department and try to work out why the government considers the Darien Gap more dangerous than North Korea. So I thought I'd do a world map of this in the ODAFR world, from the perspective of Tasmania (because why not)!.
The key up the top explains mostly what's going on, and I apologise for my Google Translate Dutch.
Any questions about why specific regions are the way they are, throw them at me!
And I am still working on Russia, but I get a bit distracted sometimes.
Not at this point, because he needs the Labour Party to win the election. After the election... probably.
What's wrong with Ulster?
From the world map, considering Britain controls all of ulster and Ireland claims it, I guess not pretty things.
Still travel recommendation tends to overestimate the risk of developped countries that have some civil unstabilities or low level insurgencies even in our world, I doubt Ulster is as dangerous as literally travelling to the middle of the Sahara ITTL, but it is more dangerous than the rest of Europe I guess.
Uh oh China doesn’t look so good, on the other hand it’s nice to see that the levant is mostly safe, also South Africa looks safe
I'm surprised Britain requires additional safety measures, what's up with them?
