What is this?
Much like the old 1006-verse, this will be a gigantic mod for the booking sim Total Extreme Wrestling 2020 (*knocks on wood*) crossing over many different fandoms and forms of media.

What happened to the 1006-verse?
We bit off way more than any of us wound up able to chew. A variety of uncontrollable events, burnout, and the friggin' thing taking several years knocked out every (major- Maniac stayed the course good job Maniac thanks Maniac) helper person one by one, leaving us with like 85% of a mod that wasn't realistically ever gonna get the last 15%. It's still up on the dropbox and will be converted and re-uploaded after 2020 is available. I had a feeling this was gonna be our ultimate fate, so I've been kinda lightly and quietly poking at my "reboot" idea ever since I brought it up.

What's different this time?
The driving concept behind this one is that I am going to set it up such that I will never be in a position where I have to count on anybody else to do anything. That means I am planning for doing this entirely on my own, and if anybody chips in a bit, great! THAT means that this mod will only cover characters and media that I feel comfortable doing without help, which in turn means the mod is going to be a good bit smaller and almost entirely based around "my" stuff.

What can I do to help?
I'm still going to have this topic as a hub. I'll seek input and feedback on stuff from time to time. (at the beginning especially) I can also definitely use help with things like pics and bios that don't require you to do any direct messing with the mod. Eventually, playtesting will be a thing as well. But, the idea is that anybody can drop in or out of this topic at any point with minimal repercussions, so hopefully that means less pressure and stress for all parties concerned.

What about using the old game as a base?
Some of it will be. Some of it won't be, and I'm sorry about that to anybody who contributed. Looking at how much work was going to be needed to A) Thanos Snap, B) shuffle everybody's location/pop/languages around to accommodate the game world redesign, and C) attributes and updates and balancing for the conversion to 2020, I don't think it winds up being much more work to just start from the beginning again. Plus this way I get to make some adjustments that wouldn't have been practical to make late in the game, and it kinda lets me get a fresh mental start, which is sorely needed at this point. Some feds and characters though, I will pretty much just grab from the old mod and convert.

But my favorite characters are gonna be gone!
Some of them, probably. Sorry. A lot of the old feds, I'll be able to keep in some of the major players. Like, I can and will give you a handful of early Naruto characters, I just haven't read past the first arc or two. I'm also planning to let everybody who helped on the old mod give me a list of a dozen or so? characters to put in even though I'll have to do research. (I reserve the right to veto somebody whose research would spoil me, but I don't think it'll come to that.) Eaed's also pledged to help advise me with some Bleach and FMA people who would normally be on the borderline, so if you want to make similar pledges I'll see what I can do. But again I'm not gonna put myself in another situation where I need y'all to do something and can't do it myself.

What's the schedule looking like?
Something like...

Feb: Propose rosters for the whole game, get feedback and adjust
Mar: Get a head start on pics, hopefully the 2020 demo comes out and I can start messing with it

And then I'm planning to go 0-100% on each region in turn:
Apr-Jun: CAN (Internet)
Jul-Sep: US (Wrestling)
Oct-Dec: UK (Western Animation)
2021
Jan-Mar: EUR (Non-RPG gaming)
Apr-Jun: IND (RPGs)
Jul-Sep: MEX (Books/TV/Movies/etc)
Oct-Dec: OCE (VNs)
2022
Jan-Mar: JPN (Anime)

I was gonna go with "world of light" but decided I hadn't gotten far enough in smash :P

For now just stick around imo and have opinions imo, and maybe do some pics if something catches your eye and you have time and we haven't done a pic previously. And start thinking about your freebie list I guess?

I can hep with... Misc, Touhou, YYH, the stuff I hepped with before, mostly

....when did ya get into Saint Seiya and the heck is Dragon Prince o-o''

...also heck it I might give into self-indulgence if I only have a few and actually give you info on that OC thing I mentioned once in the 1006-verse topic

and I use every possible veto on Bubsy BECAUSE HE IS A MISTAKE AND I WILL NOT BE PART OF MAKING HIM (even vaguely) RELEVANT.

Oh I totally forgot about this.

I was going to do something with One Piece right? And maybe Naruto as well?

Oh I thought this was just a new topic. It's actually a restart.

Well if you need any one piece or CHIKARA stuff let me know.

CHIKARA should be one of the ones that's mostly set I think! One Piece I'll probably poke you.

Are we allowing for N1RV/ the VA-11 sequel to potentially making it in, or is that gonna be a case by case thiiiing?

...Should the mod stick to Basara so it dun get too confusing with the crossover with Samurai Warriors/Warriors Orochi? Basically just stick with Basara for the Sengoku Era, especially considering the sheer amount of Nobu there is in FGO

...With Granblue's getting two non-gacha games, do ya want to add that, or is limited if any familiarity an issue there?

And what're ya looking at for misc anime?

also, in fate thing, updated my Fate chara tier https://imgur.com/in5YBdY
