Well here it is, the official thread for Real World Chronicles (and my other mods). There will be one thread which will be updated as and when releases occur so make sure to check it out in January, April, July & September to see if there is an update!
Version: May 2018
[quote]Alternative Picture Packs
blaustein has released one of the best picture packs I have seen in a very long while. Although it does not contain everyone in Real World Chronicles,
it is worth the download and just replace any pictures in my pack with those done in this pack.>>>NJPW Faction Packs (And More!)<<<
Dragonkandi has been working on a picture pack to update and refresh the current Blue/Pink Blast pictures - or the official RWC picture style. Again, while not a complete pack, it is worth downloading and selecting any pictures you wish to replace.
>>>Make Fleisch Great Again<<<
(For the record, I am great!
LazarN has taken over Dragonkandi's idea to make the picture pack great again. You can find the thread by clicking >>>Make Flesich Great Again Pt 2<<<
These packs are a huge help to me as I don't have to constantly update pictures every release.
BasicThuganomics also has a compatible picture pack located in the WWE Brand Split Pic Pack
thread. Another awesome pack that I can see becoming a favourite amongst people.
A couple of things to remember, we're making a world, not the WWE Universe. Too many people have their WWE blinkers on and don't see the big picture, there is a wrestling world beyond the United States. In order to get a good balance, we need to realise WWE is the powerhouse promotion and #1 company, however they are not the only popular promotion in the world. People say, "do WWE and the rest falls into place," and that isn't actually true because WWE is different to NJPW which in turn is different to CMLL so a lot of work has gone into all of these and not just WWE. I've treated each promotion as it's own separate entity, all the while trying to balance it into the world. Title histories are done by Air date (if the company has a TV show) rather than Taping date due to the fact some people may not read spoilers and thus don't know that, for example, the TNA Championship changed 2 weeks before it airs. This is something that will not change while I continue doing this mod.
I listen to people who give polite, constructive criticism, and change things people find wrong, or explain my reasons for giving certain stats to certain people. If a promotion you want isn't in the data, it's purely because I don't know enough about it to do it justice and not because I can't be bothered. A lot of people in this thread have helped shape this mod through their informative responses and hopefully we can keep that level of maturity and mutual respect up. I do this data for myself so if you don't like playing it or find it too difficult/easy then please download another mod you would be happier using. You can also follow RWC on Twitter, @Fleisch_RWC which will be updated as and when updates for Chronicles are released.
Real World Chronicles makes a change in scheduled releases going from once a month, to once every three months.
January Release (Build up to Royal Rumble)
April Release (Build up to Wrestlemania)
Q: Why aren't there more promotions to choose from?
A: I prefer a streamlined data set. It's very difficult updating 50 promotions every month so adding more would degrade the quality of the mod due to the time I can spend updating. The mod will never surpass 55 active promotions.
Q: Can I use this data as a base for my own mod?
A: Yes. Everything is free to use. The more mods there are, the better the choice.
Q: Do you take requests on promotions to be added? I really want to see XYZ in the game.
A: Currently I am not taking any requests as I have limitations on my time.
Q: I notice there are inactive promotions such as WCW and ECW in the data. Why?
A: Chronicles started out as a mod that would highlight the past as well as the present. Having WCW in the data meant I could add WCW specific gimmicks that people had in the past and when searching the "Characters" tab of a worker it would show they used a certain gimmick only then. The same reason you will see WRP and Lucha USA as closed promotions in the game. It was meant to add an extra layer to the data that I hadn't really seen done before.
Q: Why is there nothing in Australia?
A: Simply put, I know a big fat nothing when it comes to Australian wrestling and I've not found any one who is able to work on it for me who does know.

"Does 4.0 mean there will be new stuff?" Indeed there will, starting with one of the bigger changes, the exodus from Gotham Pro Wrestling by The Joker and Harley Quinn who have now set up "Joker's Funhouse" that will be full of villains! There will be other additions, whether it be workers, promotions or more, you will just have to wait and find out!
Returning to the roots of my original mod, this is the data that started it all in terms of fantasy booking - Rebuilt. Originally made on EWR before making an appearance on TEW 2004, Diablo X (at the time called Diablo Kombat) was the first solo mod I ever worked on. In 2010 the data was built from the ground up again to utilise all the new options in 2010's TEW. In 2016, I will be rebuilding the database again! Glutton for punishment I know! There are going to be quite a few changes. The picture pack is made up of fan art from Google. If I am using something that is yours and you would prefer I didn't, let me know and I will replace it. I don't mean to cause offence or "steal" someone's hardwork, it is acknowledged I merely resize images I find on Google and Bing to fit the mod and choose things I really think are amazing pieces of fan art. If you would like me to include a personal credit in here, then I will happily do that.
Games, Comics, Anime & Cartoons collide in a Universe so diverse, it really is for anyone. Whether you want to destroy the PWE as Skeletor, or save it as He-Man. Whether the Turtles will triumph over Shredder or Bebop and Rocksteady become the new threat in MAE. The only limit is your imagination. Nostalgia and Modern times smash into one another to create DiabloX. So enjoy!
