The ThunderVerse is a fan-made mod for TEW2013 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 Platinum Edition of the ThunderVerse - it has been adjusted and tweaked into what we believe is not only the most in-depth version of the mod, but also the most accurate to our vision. As such, there are some changes that previous ThunderVerse players will notice (some of which are listed below), but this version of the mod is the only one that should be considered "canon".
The main idea behind the ThunderVerse is 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.
WHAT IS NEW
-When the ThunderVerse first launched it had 700 workers in it. There are now more than three-times that amount with a total at almost 2400!
-When the ThunderVerse launched there were three areas, thanks to the incorporation (albeit with some tweaking) of the ROTW mod, this now covers all seven in-game regions.
-There are more mod-specific angles, matches and locations.
-The ThunderVerse contains mod-specific TV networks, PPV carriers, Media Groups, angles and matches.
-A large number of title lineages have been reworked to offer more realistic reign lengths.
-All title lineages should now contain week information, allowing the player to see exactly when a title reign was won, and to make the lineages flow better once the game has started.
-A number of "FAMOUS" angles have been added should you wish to recreate great (or at least, notable!) moments from ThunderVerse history in your own promotion.
-With a few exceptions, every location in the game is ThunderVerse specific. Europe, in particular, has undergone a massive transformation as the various countries within each region now have both their own venues, and their own language settings.
TIPS, TRICKS & NOTES
-With the new mechanics in TEW2013 I think Worker Generation being on is a must for the mod. In 2010 (where the AI created workers weren't always as strong) we successfully tested ten years with it set to Low, so how many new workers you want is entirely up to you.
-By the same token, I would leave Regens on. Sure, it's a bit odd seeing a 19 year-old Terry Thunder but it helps to world flow, especially with the new Legacy settings.
-The bigger Japanese promotions have already had their rosters split into Heavyweight and Junior Divisions for ease of use via the filter system.
-All 23 of the 2012 Become A Star participants are graduates of the Become A Star dojo. It is no longer active, but by filtering the dojo page by Retired/Inactive you'll find it. Double clicking on the name will open said individual's bio, so you can quickly hire all 23 should you so wish. Similarly, the GAW Return Of A Legend competition entries are graduates of a dojo of the same name.
-For people who are using their own promotion, or would like to add an additional belt to their current promotion, MJStark has kindly provided a number of generic title belts that are included within the ThunderVerse download.
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!
*The ThunderVerse Team is James0, jhd1, MichiganHero, MJStark, RareKuma, Sebsplex, Shmoe, and TheEnforcer. A huge thanks also goes to Platinum version testers Andy_Kobain, Bigpapa42, Midnightnick, and pteroid.
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.
