TsuMirren Posted March 28, 2018 Share Posted March 28, 2018 Okay folks, the 1985 real world mod is here. I don't have a name for it or a banner, but see below for some detail. Data and game world: Beginning in October of 1985, this mod offers you the chance to pick up at a time when the UK has THREE promotions on television (fair enough, one was in Wales). You also have various US promotions on Screensport, most US promotions with some form of television deal and...more importantly I hear you all say...the NWA in a relatively healthy state. Oh, alright, the important part is really WWF post-Wrestlemania I and the fact the WCCW, Mid-South and AWA could all join Jim Crockett Promotions in battling with the WWF juggernaut. The release itself utilises the 1987 TGA mod released by Genadi as it's base, whilst pulling from work I've done for various mods on the UK & Europe, Alv's 1980 mod and Justtxyank's Rising Storms with a whole raft of additions on top of all that. So, thanks goes out to my Mod Squad colleagues for the data, chat, allowing me to collaborate with them, the discussion and their tolerance levels. I've no doubt the release will raise issues, debate and discussion. At times I've made a call on what to do with a worker, his name and/or alter egos. With the UWF, I've of course started them as Mid-South and narratives will change the name and logos. The title belts begin as the UWF ones as obviously you can't set belts to retire or become live in game. I've added a few promotions, tried my best with the TV deals (quite possible AWA and/or WWF have too many affiliates, though I've no doubt some may drop off), given the NWA as wide a group of members as possible and trawled Screensport indents and footage to try to understand exactly how many promotions were on there. There's some new logos in there, some workers will have edited bios and others will no doubt have ones that mention events post-85. Title histories have been edited, does my head in though that you can't delete them from within the title screen so I'll have missed some out of sheer monotony. You will of course no doubt get to use Gino...ohhhhhhhh Gino...beyond his death and perhaps Mike Von Erich will make a full recovery. Just some of the joys to uncover as you progress from the start of October 1985 onwards. If you spot anything that needs edited or you feel could be a possible change then feel free to post them on here. I ran 9 year long runs and I'm two weeks in to a diary, nothing really obvious has jumped out at me or at least no game changers. The main thing I didn't really change was Halls of Fame and there's only one starting storyline as you'll set your own and the game won't run those provided anyway. PIC PACK: The supplied pick pack includes all of my edits, quite frankly every single one I've done for various mods, along with the entire MSP pic pack and possibly some gathered from Justtxyank's pic pack. Game Speed: Runs nice and fast on my PC, plus being born in the 70's probably means I'm a bit more patient. Hopefully it'll be playable for all, should be. THE LINKS (now updated to V1.2): Now on to V1.2, felt the edit of the NWA and relocation of locations back to the Mid-Atlantic merited that. There's a few other edits out there, including being able to add Polynesian Pro to the NWA. CWF are limited to Regional, whilst the limit has been removed for the WWA. I've updated V1.1, just didn't feel it merited being 1.2. Big Bear Promotions is added in, plus JCP is based in Mid-Atlantic with the Carolina's moved back to Mid-Atlantic. The Mid West State locations have also been moved out of the Mid South so Central States works properly. Oh and The Destroyer is added in.
