Big Roguey Posted May 22, 2016 Share Posted May 22, 2016 http://i.imgur.com/KyFZom9.png INTRODUCTION The ThunderVerse is a fan-made mod for TEW2016 that has been available, in some form or other, since 2012 and TEW2010. Much like the Cverse, the ThunderVerse features fictional characters and wrestling promotions, while offering a different universe to play. This is the Diamond Edition of the ThunderVerse. Cleverly named for two reasons. One, Diamonds are totally better than Platinum...s and two, this is the last "canon" Thunderverse being released - so much like diamonds, this will be forever. Simply put, life is getting ever more busy for everyone on the team and we decided that having one more go - riding off into the sunset if you will - has the best route to go down. This does also mean that Vice has officially been cancelled. I personally apologise for anyone who I've misled with this information, we originally were going to surprise launch this but time has gotten away from us all and we figured it was now best to start releasing a little bit of information on what we've been working on. The main idea behind the ThunderVerse is, as always, to offer the player choice (and of course fun!), and there should be something for everyone in the universe we have created, particularly as it now spans all seven of the game's regions. RELEASE DATE We're in the final stages of working on it so a summer release is looking likely. I'm reluctant to put an actual time on it but I would like to think no later than the end of July for the first actual release. 2016 CHANGES - Platinum had close to 2400 workers in it, we've expanded this to close to 2700 workers in Diamond with a leap from 86 yet to debut workers to 146! - The game world has naturally progressed since Platinum! - The mod has been fitted with extensive injury histories, mask & hair histories and other 2016 exclusive goodies to flesh out the world as much as we possibly can. - Worker popularity is now regionalised - for an example of how this looks, look at DerekB's wonderful 1997 Cornellverse mod. - All promotion bios now start with "Location X, Y" as a definitive point for where each promotion's "home" is. BECOME A STAR For those wondering where Become A Star II fits into the Diamond landscape, I'm happy to announce the prizes are still the same. BASII was originally intended to feed into the surprise launch of Diamond but as mentioned above, life got in the way. DISCLAIMER We would appreciate it if people did not make a mirror of any release of the ThunderVerse - this allows us to keep control of which version is available and, in theory, to keep the mod to this forum. As I'm sure you understand, a lot of work has gone into this and we would like to retain its control! Additionally, despite this being the last "canon" Thunderverse, the team still retains full control. What this means is that the mod will not be open source and if anyone wishes to make publicly released mods that are using the Thunderverse, they should message MHero as a first port of call. We may also down the line release additional DLC type packs for Diamond or full mods set in the Thunderverse world(s). CREDITS *The ThunderVerse Team is Eastwood, James0, jhd1, MHero, MJStark, RareKuma, Sebsplex, Shmoe, and TheEnforcer. A huge thanks to Bigpapa42 who has helped test the mod throughout it's development. The ThunderVerse and it's sister projects, the LotharioVerse and ROTW, could not have been created without the help of 20LEgend, Andy_Kobain, angeldelayette, Bigpapa42, Eastwood, Kamchatka, LoNdOn, Tigerkinney and Trell. We would also like to thank Weidt for allowing the ThunderVerse to feature a few crossovers with his excellent WMMA3 mod, the Weidtverse. Finally, a big thank you to Sockpuppet for allowing the use of his excellent Injury Mod within the ThunderVerse. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
