That 70s Mod 1.1 Hype Thread: Cverse 1977


Recommended Posts

That 70's Mod

 

OK, let's first post the initial data that you can still get on bobinc.net

 

Release Date:5/13/10.....http://www.bobinc.net/TEW10Downloads.html

 

The corresponding thread on these boards: http://www.greydogsoftware.com/forum/showthread.php?t=76371

 

Now, the new release will be mostly about fixing any errors in the first release along with updating graphics that were contributed after the fact. Along with this, I have added New Workers in Canada, Europe, and the UK in order to better transition those areas of the game world into the 80s and beyond.

 

For those who haven't played this data:

 

This is the default CornellVerse set in 1977:

 

--The US is still in the last stages of the territorial days. SWF has not asserted its full power and there are still several really entertaining companies around the country that are fighting the war against Eisen & Co.

 

--Europe, UK, and Japan are going through the re-birth that the CV website talks about and many of the legends that we see in the current data are just making their debut

 

--The landscape of Canada is vastly different than what we see now, as the CWF dominates the country, potentially threatening to spread to the US

 

--It is the golden age of wrestling in Mexico. Literally, you will never see more talent in the region than at this time, and both of the major companies in the area - OLLIE and MPWF - are stacked with future members of the HOI.

 

Over-all, the mod has been around since TEW07 and we have been very blessed to have worked with a variety of talented artists (sebsplex, SadisticBlessings, jtlant, Self, Trell, jhd1, London..and so many more) and to have attracted a pretty dedicated following. Adam has also liked the mod well enough that several of t he character that were created for the data have become part of CVerse canon.

 

So if you haven't tried it yet..what are you waiting for???

 

That being said - here's what we'll be looking for as we post the data and moving beyond that.

 

1. If you play or have played the data and found some errors...POST THEM! We are not looking to do a 1.2 so speak up!!! :)

 

2. I've had a few people ask if we "needed" any characters rendered. Just to expedite things, I'll be posting a list of characters that have No Render (or none we can find) and workers who probably deserve a re-render (no insult to anyone: when this mod was first started, we picked random renders off the net stuck on the CV background, so there are some pretty high profile character with some pretty lousy renders)

 

Anyone who sees the posted lists and contributes will be credited and we will be eternally grateful

 

3. The same goes for event logos, title belts, etc. Our aim is not to complete the graphics (it'd be nice.. :p ) so I'm not going to do a complete list, but if anyone 'feels moved' to contribute, I'm all for it. At the very least, if you just like practicing your renders, we'll take 'em.

 

Finally...I leave you with the greatest thing I've ever seen this mod do, something MTJTM posted a while back, which really captures what we were trying to do with this mod. Four years after the data starts, the AI manages to book the "Greatest Match in CV History" according to canon on the same day, the same event, with the same result.

 

We must be doing something right. ;)

Again..thank you to everyone who has ever played, enjoyed, critiqued, or contributed to this mod. Without you all, this would feel totally pointless. And Mr T Jobs To Me have been doing this for years. It would suck if we didn't get the feedback from you guys.

Looking forward to seeing all the new updates etc. When I see a list of renders that need doing I may get that creative bug, you never know. :)

 

Well the first list is mostly staff, but there are some well known current workers that need 70s versions. Love your renders...so I'm sure I'll like whatever you can contribute.

 

Well... guess I'll just have to import those new workers into my APWF game and hope for the best!!!

 

Because I'll be hardpressed to put that one down.

 

Yeah..for you long time workers i know updates are tough...but eventually I think a lot of these New Workers will make fun and useful additions, especially for any version of an 80s CV.

Two dojo graduations I know out of my head were not ackowledged in the appropriate section :

 

Xenos Papadopoulos from the Dog Pound (Sept 77)

Ben Michaelson from the MWA (Dec 77)

 

There might be a couple of others, but as I said, that's the two I remember adding manually.

 

WBW and APWF rosters might need a little tweaking as they constantly fire a couple of guys in the first few days. Much like Handsome Tommy always gets canned from CPW on the first day.

Great thread start, PeterHilton! I'd like to echo the gratitude to everyone who's helped us along the way, and give a special thanks to Peter for helping from start to finish... I doubt this thing would have gotten far as a solo project.

 

Well, the data is back in my hands and it's time to head for the finish line. I'll try to post a list of the unclaimed titles for MJStark tonight, if anyone else with graphicin' skills wants to do something just mention it here!

OK..I've updated the lists of character with no-render or who could use re-renders.

 

This is starting to look greedy so i want to be clear that I've had people ask me if we need renders and if we had a list...so this was the fastest way to clear up those questions. If no one does a single render,we're still totally cool because we've gotten some amazing support from tons of people through the years. :D

 

Please keep posting corrections...we'll still keep updating data.

 

Last thing..still looking for logos for these promotions

 

PAW - Pure American Wrestling - pure based wrestling in the Carolinas

TTW -Toronto Total Wrestling - traditional company in Canada

UKWA:Redux -relaunch of the first organized wrestling promotion in the UK

UKPW- UK Pro Wrestling - UK based pro wrestling company

WSPW - Wild Side Pro Wrestling - Cali based trash wrestling fed - lots of sex and hardcore

3XW - XXX Wrestling - garbage fed with tons of blood and sex

Long List :D

 

These two are old. Must've got lost in the shuffle the first time around.

 

Udo Maslowski & Tsuyuha Takeda

These three are new ones. Not totally happy with Cap USA, but like the other two...

 

Giant Yutaka, Captain USA & El Maestro

http://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii145/jtlant/TEW/GiantYutaka.jpghttp://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii145/jtlant/TEW/CaptainUSA_alt1jt.jpghttp://i263.photobucket.com/albums/ii145/jtlant/TEW/ElMaestro.jpg

 

I'll see if I can knock a few more out later tonight. :D

I actually made a (pretty bad) logo for TTW, since they popped up in my game (also had to edit their profile, as Andrew Barber ended up owner.)

 

Lemme just attach it, I'm not in the mood to go to photobucket.

 

Like I said, it's nothing amazing and I just slapped it together so I didn't have to look at the ? symbol anymore, but hey... it'll do until one of the real logo makers can get around to it.
