Okay, so I'm making a timeline to help keep track of the continuity for this mod. I've been going over the existing pedia entries and adding material as I read. It will all be added to this post.

Current status: I finished with all the existing pedia entires.

Notes on the timeline:
Dates with a '?' are uncertain dates- ones which definitely happen, but do not have a date specified in the pedias. I used my best estimations for these, but can change them if there are any objections. Some of them are vague, and require concrete placement.
Dates with an '*' are material that are not listed in the pedias. These are just my suggestions to add to the universe, and can be removed or fully canonized at cfkane's discretion. These often have little bearing on the mod itself, but I like the flavour that they add.
I'm taking real world history for granted for this timeline. I will only list historical events if they are a) directly related to the works of fiction used in the mod, or b) involve the creation or destruction of a playable nation. Thus, the World Wars are listed, since they appear in many works of fiction that we're using, while the American Civil War is only briefly listed because it isn't particularly important to the mod's setting as of my writing.


Original material:
I've added a reference to the film King Ralph. I've never seen the film, but I like the idea.
I've also equated the character Al-Asad from Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with Saddam Hussein. This also allowed me to pull in a minor reference to Arrested Development. I also expanded Al-Asad's role somewhat, making him a former leader of the Global Liberation Army and one of the masterminds behind 9/11.
I got greedy and added in Porco Rosso, mainly because I can.
I wanted to put in more Metal Gear references, but the later games in the series make other aspects of the timeline more difficult to use (for example, using the Patriots would completely defeat the purpose behind Ryan, Bartlet, and Scudder- having them be pawns of the conspiracy would make them seem less 'special', if you know what I mean). I may retcon Metal Gear into the timeline further in a later update, but I want to be able to reconcile the Patriots with what we already have first. I did, however, settle by including the character of Sokolov from MGS3, and used him as the bargaining piece that settled the Stranglove Incident (rather than the Cuban Missile Crisis from the game).
I put in several more references to Lost and Atomic Robo. These are mainly because I love them so much. Plus, I think we can probably connect them to other works.
I changed Jim Hacker's inclusion around a bit, booting Thatcher out of Number 10 four years early. This is mainly because I wanted to keep Yes, Prime Minister in the 80s when it was made, and also because Hacker in the show was more of a moderate, politically, than Thatcher. I thought the idea of Hacker continuing Thatcher's privatizations was good, but I also thought that he'd be more, well, moderate about it than ol' Maggie.
Lastly, I added in the Tunguska Event. This is 'explained' in numerous works, so I thought I'd leave it ambiguous. The Great Old Ones theory is an indirect reference to Atomic Robo (who could've seen that coming?), where the Event is caused by a Lovecraft-esque eldritch abomination (interestingly, in the comic, the beast is defeated by Charles Fort, Nikola Tesla, and Lovecraft himself). I thought this was too good to leave out.
I've taken a few creative liberties with Cervantes, including setting up a definite date for the Soul Calibur games (based on information from the Soul Calibur Wikia) and having him fight in the Spanish Civil War.
Similarly, the recent pedia updates add all of the 'Cold War turned hot' scenarios into one massive cluster...thingy, which works fairly well, but I had to change some things around. The 'Strangelove Incident' is staying exactly where I put it before, since it is very much a 1960s event, since it replaces the Cuban Missile Crisis. However, I have kept the 'Red Storm War' in the place mentioned in the new pedias, since I think it works very nicely.
Also snuck in some more Hellboy, since I only just recently became a fan of the character and decided that he needs more love than just a one-off mention in Hynkel's entry.
Also, a quickie reference to the Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Season Eight comic books. I haven't read them, but they are official series canon according to Joss Whedon, so yeah.

Awesome job, Moogi, from now on you officially are my hero! :D

As you mentioned above you are currently using the old drafts for the pedias. Although most of them still are correct, I postet a list of all pedias a short while ago in the pedia section. But forget that one, too, because I'm right now posting a list of all pedias we've got so for including all updates and the pedias for the leaders. I guess it would be the best decision to check the current timeline for changes and then use the new list. Most of what the timeline contains until now should be still true, anyway.

Sorry, my bad with the continuity. I'll change that wright now and add it to the new pedia list. From now on the Goa'uld's rule officially lasted from ~8.000-3.000 BC. The dates of Yamato Takeru are fixed, too.

EDIT: I just thought of this: There are probably going to be problems with the length of this thread's thirst post. You'll most likely have to split up the timeline to two or more posts.

Good point. Is there a way to weasel in a new post after my first one?

EDIT: I've just put notices on the third and fifth posts. I'll use those if the timeline gets too big.

I don't know, but if cfkane would delete his first post in this thread you could use your second post to enlarge the list. However, this will only be necessary as soon as the list is full.

And here's some stuff for the list (most of this is not mentioned in the pedias, at least not by date):

-1740-1748: War of the Freedonian Succession (based on the historical War of the Austrian Succession)
-1886: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde terrorize London (The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde)
-1954-1969: America wins the Vietnam War with the help of superheroes like The Comedian and Dr. Manhattan (Watchmen)
-1977: Richard Nixon begins his third period of office (Watchmen)
-1996: A subterranean species of Martians destroys the Barsoomian empire on Mars and then attacks Earth (Mars Attacks!)
-2001: An alien species related to the Chimera attacks Maine (Dreamcatcher)
-2004: the ONAN declares this year to be the Year of the Whopper (Infinite Jest)
-2005: the Martians who assaulted England in 1898 return to invade North America (War of the Worlds: New Millenium, Year of the Tucks Medicated Pad (Infinite Jest)
-2006: Year of the Trial-Size Dove Bar (Infinite Jest)
-2007: Year of the Perdue Wonderchicken (Infinite Jest)
-2008: Year of the Whisper-Quiet Maytag Dishmaster (Infinite Jest)
-2009: Year of the Yuhorsehockyyu 2007 Mimetic-Resolution-Cartridge-View-Motherboard-Easy-To-Install-Upgrade For Infernatron/InterLace TP Systems For Home, Office Or Mobile (Infinite Jest)
-2010: Year of Dairy Products from the American Heartland (Infinite Jest)
-2011: Skynet is constructed (Terminator), Year of the Depend Adult Undergarment (Infinite Jest)
-2012: Year of Glad (Infinite Jest)
-2052: World War III begins with the invasion of the Middle East by Europe and Russia, the United Nations are disbanded (Fallout)
-2053: A terrorist nuclear weapon destroys Tel Aviv (Fallout)
-2054: Limited nuclear exchange in the Middle East raises fears of an upcomign World War throughout the world (Fallout)
-2068: Robert L. Booth becomes the president of the ONAN by rigging the vote-counting computers (Judge Dredd
-I'd change the description of 2077, because WW III actually began with the Asian invasion of the Middle East. Instead you could write somethin like this: the world is ravaged by the nuclear holocaust of World War III

And here are some thoughts about the future of humanity after the construction of the warp drive:
-the world is united by the militaristic world government called Terran Federation (Starship Troopers)
-while starting to colonize near planets, the Terran forces encounter aliens called Formics (called Bugs or buggers by the humans) and a war is ignited by a missunderstanding (Ender's Game)
-for decades the Terran Federation fights the Formics until they are destroyed thanks to the efforts of the Mechanized Infantry and Andrew "Ender" Wiggin (mix of Starship Troopers and Ender's Game)
-because of infighting the Terran Federation collapses and is succeeded by four powerful superstates: the European Empire, the America Inc., the Pan-Asia Cooperative and the Great Southlands (Next War)
-Earth is united by a world government once more and joins the United Federation of Planets (Star Trek)
-Earth's fallout is scrubbed away by the Japanese Miracle (Ghost in the Shell) and as the planet becomes overpopulated, a society that is half Sino-Euro-American and half Chinese emigrates from Earth to another star system (Firefly)
-The world government's influence increases and it begins to absorb other alien species (mix of Star Trek and Futurama)

-in a distant future, humanity is torn apart by a civil war of the Jedis and the Sith followers of Darth Vader (Star Wars)

-in a very distant future (~20,000 AC) the human star empire is weakend by the civil war of Jedis and Siths and most planets become semi-independant, ruled by aristocratic royal houses who answer to the universal ruler of humanity (Dune)

-in a VERY distant future (~40,000 AC) humanity has settled millions of star systems, has annexed all near alien empires bordering Earth (e.g. the Vulcans, the Klingons, etc.) and has become an absolut monarchy ruled by the immortal emperor battling neighboring interstellar superpowers like the Orcs, the Tau, the Necrons and the forces of Chaos (Warhammer 40,000)

-the wicked Chaos force weakens the fabrics of reality and according to the Maya calendar the Seventh Age begins: the laws of physics become invalide, logic is corrupted, time becomes blurred and with all the planes of existance merging into one, heroes from different universes appear (The Dark Tower)

A word on Watchmen and Star Wars.

Watchmen's timeline just can't work in a universe where superheroes are the norm. The whole point of the story was that the whole concept of a superhero is ridiculous and dangerous. Plus, I think America is fated to lose the Vietnam War. There are far too many important works of fiction that use the war as a symbol of lost innocence, chaos that only brings defeat, and a black mark on the nation's history to change that. No Watchmen.

Also, Star Wars took place "A long time ago..." not in the far future.

Some of those will work (I dig the War of Freedonian Succession!), but I'm not planning on touching the post-Warp Drive world (this is unfortunate, since I've always wanted to place Metroid into the Star Trek universe). I want to try to keep the timeline within the limits of the mod's gameplay. Also, Star Wars takes place in another galaxy, without any ties to Earth, so even if I extended it into the far future, I couldn't use it.

But thanks all the same! Some of these will work nicely into the timeline!

The next few updates will focus mainly on the pedia entries written so far. After I've finished all of the completed entries, I'm going to start filling in data on the Hero and Superhero units.

Dibukk gave me a text file containing all the most recent pedia entries. When I update my timeline (hopefully later today), I'll be drawing from that, rather than from the thread.

Moogi, I really like what you've done so far but I would delete the reference to Batman Begins. Although it's a nice idea it doesn't really fit into the timeline as Batman Begins came out in 2005 when Batman wasalready 60-70 years old. However, that isn't so bad, but my main concern is that it is too weird for my taste: An American buisnessman travels to a monastary in Tibet which lies near the Great Wall of China and learns from a European looking man with an Arabic name to become a Chinese ninja. Huh? A certain screenplay writer should have been more attentive when learning about geography and different cultures...

Well, in Batman Begin's defense, the League of Shadows was shown to be a global group with influence in London, Rome, and Gotham. So an international feel wouldn't be entirely out of place.

And I'm okay with adding that part to Batman's bio. Besides, the movie aimed to cover a part of Batman's life that had never been talked about before. Seems only necessary to fill that plot hole with something.

Good points, both Dumanios and cfkane. I'm fine with Batman Begins then.

I like your idea of merging Buzz Cola and Nuka-Cola into one, but Nuka-Cola was invented (or in our continuity renamed) in 2044. Here's a timeline that might be helpful for the WW III and post-WW III timeline: Click me, I'm a link!
Oh, and great idea rearding Al-Asad! That's the spirit of this mod! :goodjob:

Some more dates:

~1800 BC: The Brotherhood of Nod is founded by the immortal Kane (Command & Conquer)

1992-1996: The Eugenic Wars begin (Star Trek)
1995: A meteorite consisting of an unknown material that causes heavy mutation crash lands near the river Tiber and is thus named Tiberium (Command & Conquer)
1995-1996: The mysterious Brotherhood of Nod led by the immortal Kane conquers Africa and begins to fight the GDI during a phase of the Eugenic Wars called the First Tiberium War (Command & Conquer)

2030: The Second Tiberium War takes place (Command & Conquer: Tiberian Sun

2047: The Third Tiberium War takes place and is joined by aliens known as Scrin (Command & Conquer: Tiberian Wars)

2062-2068: The Brotherhood of Nod and the GDI create a brief alliance until radical elements of both sides ignite the Fourth Tiberium War (Command & Conquer: Tiberian Twilight)
2066: Scientists from Gilead invent the first crude fusion cell but the ONAN denies its plans to the rest of the world resulting in global tension (Fallout)
2067: The Power Armor, an American type of heavy mecha, is invented by the ONAN (Fallout)

Oh and Moogi, could you please put the timeline into spoiler tags? It's getting long. :lol:

Post WWIII-The Unity leaves Earth to go to another planet(Sid Meier's Alpha Centauri)

I'll add some of these into the next update.

I'll probably heavily retcon Command and Conquer, though. The later installments are a bit too apocalyptic for my liking, what with the Tiberium taking over the planet and such. I'll keep them in, but I'm going to have to seriously lessen their impact, for continuity purposes.

Secondly, I'm going to wait until Khan's pedia entry (or India's) is written before covering the Eugenic Wars. It's such an oddly-covered aspect of the Trek universe (told as a genocidal war in the '60s, probably retconned in the novels, listed as being part of WWIII in the earlier drafts of our pedias, etc.) that I'm going to wait until I have it put into better context.

I'm wary about adding too much Fallout, just as I am wary of adding too much Shadowrun. As much as I like both of the stories, I don't want them 'taking over' the Future parts of the timeline.
