    This is not a funny pic thread !

    The very title of this thread includes the note "read FAQ first". If you read the FAQ closely, it says very explicitly, NO "funny pics I found" and NO "current politics". I'm sorry to say, your post violates those rules. This is meant to be a creative thread, not an "everything goes" spam thread. The previous thread was perma-locked by the mods because it became a wastebasket, and I specifically set up some rules in this thread's FAQ to prevent such future behaviour right from the get-go. Just to keep this thread going and prevent it from getting locked.

    I suggest you be kind and remove the picture in your post. It is zero-content level for the likes of this thread. You can repost the picture in a funny picture thread or a meme thread, but please, not this particular thread. Maps and Graphics isn't for current political content anyway, even the satirical sort.

    Thank you for your understanding. I'm not one to be overly strict, but if we have threads with a clear mission statement, they should be kept on track, especially if it's on one of the creativity-focused forums, not the off-topic forums.

    I am really sorry, I wasn't thinking. If not for the above rule it could worked for an ape themed TL.

    Painting of the Royal Barge Procession in the Kingdom of Ayutthaya, during the reign of King Thai Sa c. 1713, shortly after the new Swedish embassy arrived in Ayutthaya.

    While those Swedish up-timers who found themselves in positions of power argued strongly against the Kingdom - and later the Union - playing the colonial game, they did see the benefits in developing Swedish influence and trade overseas, and as such would work towards that end, using up-time historical knowledge to assist. Indeed, this approach would appeal to more up-timers, as in their eyes, it would see many peoples avoiding a colonial fate.

    The greatest success that Sweden enjoyed in this area was with the Kingdom of Ayutthaya. King Thai Sa would seize eagerly upon historical records of his realm's future, and would work to avert certain looming disasters (the succession struggle among his three sons) while also investing in building up the kingdom. He would buy modern weapons from Sweden in return for various trading concessions and access to resources within Ayutthaya, as well as an agreement to assist Sweden against colonies and vassals held by enemies of Sweden in Asia.

    Under King Thai Sa, followed by King Aphai who proved to be an even more able monarch who learned even more avidly from the up-timers, Ayutthaya would consolidate power and begin a long period of growth, as seen most obviously in their victory over Vietnam in a war between 1717 and 1718, and the securing of Cambodia as a vassal of Ayutthaya. Ultimately, Ayutthaya - together with a small Swedish naval force - would fight in the Three Years' War, defeating Dutch forces on the Malay Peninsula and East India Company troops to add Southern Burma to its sphere of influence.


    Shinsengumi troops of the Tokugawa Shogunate c. 1738.

    Japan would receive its enticement into the modern world courtesy of the Dutch. Fearful of embryonic Swedish influence in South-East Asia, as well as their traditional Spanish and British rivals near their sphere of influence, the Dutch would approach the Tokugawa Shogunate via their trade legation in Dejima. They would provide the Shogunate with up-time information on Japan's possible future, together with more advanced weapons, in exchange for the Shogunate agreeing to aid them in defending the Dutch East Indies and similar holdings in the event of conflict.

    Following a period of internal 'house-cleaning', the Tokugawa Shogunate would gradually modernise: not as quickly as their up-time equivalents might have, but still with alacrity. Part of this was the creation of the Shinsengumi, modelled after an organisation that would have been founded in another world's 19th century...but far bigger. Where their other-worldly prototype would have been a small corps, the Shinsengumi were an army, ultimately rising to over forty thousand souls. Though given the status of samurai, they allowed men from non-samurai classes to join and thus gain status, as well as providing a home for second sons and ronin. Moreover, the Shinsengumi would be first in line for modern firearms and any other up-time inspired weaponry and vehicles that Japan managed to buy or ultimately manufacture...thus proving a handy counterweight to ambitious samurai leaders as well, if necessary.

    The Shinsengumi would take the lead in Japan's efforts in the Three Years' War, forming the vanguard of the army sent to invade the Spanish Philippines from the north while Dutch East India Company forces landed on the southernmost islands. In the aftermath of the war, Japan would claim Luzon, Mindoro and Palawan, creating new domains on the islands for samurai who distinguished themselves in the conflict and shipping merchants and peasants over to fill them, while the Dutch would prop up various local rulers on the other islands.


    Malacca, c. 1764. Following the Three Years' War, multiple Malay sultanates would become vassals to the Kingdom of Ayutthaya, while the Swedish would be granted what used to be Dutch Malacca. Technically, it was ceded to the Sultanate of Johor but Sweden - and later the Northern Commonwealth - leased the territory for a century, paying the Sultan a large lump sum of money and agreeing to assist in the modernisation of Johor - this having been the lure to attract Johor to switch sides away from the Dutch during the Three Years' War.

    Malacca would become a major trade hub, as Swedish, French and other traders moved in. The Swedish administration would see the city hugely developed, as seen by the electric lighting in the photograph.​

    Tanks Of The Civil War
    Confederate Bull Work Tank one of the largest CSA tank made by the rebels and saw use during the mid war until the fall of the confederacy.
    Union Goliath class tank made to punched large in Confederate lines and break through encirclements. One also served as Sherman “flag ship” during his march to the sea. By the time most of the Goliath class began to be used in the late war most of CSA lines had begun to collapsed due to a lack of man power rendering a lot of them useless until the second Anglo-American war
    Confederate Rot-Well tank produced in low numbers during the mid to late war. It was one of the few useful CSA tanks against Union Tanks. Confederate Generals like Bedford Forest refused and fought against the idea of tanks.
    The Union “Abby” tank which was original produced in 1859 a year before the war but due issues in productions it wasn’t ready to use until late 1865 towards the end of the war.
