General RulesEdit

  1. On nation per user.
  2. Expansion in extreme climates like Greenland, Niger, Nepal and Amazonia will be very slow due to logistic and climate problems for any wood-be invader. Hyper-expansion is not fair.
  3. Technical and scientific development is at normal rate and with out premature and/or 'hyper-development' of technology. The Modle-N Ford car was invented in 1906 and British Commit Tank was invented in 1943. A few years early OK, but decades out is daft/ASB.
  4. It take 1 year for a superpower (USA, USSR and China) to build 100 nukes, 2 years for other nuke using industrialised nations (France, UK, India, S. Africa and Israel)  to build them, but if your nation is industrialised and does not have any nukes (Germany, Canada, Australia, Poland, etc,) then it will take 5 years to invent them. Any one can buy nikes of those who are willing to sell them.  
  5. Wars will use a War Algorithm . The result is placed here War Algorithm result page for record.
  6. You must be plausible and sound believable.
  7. Each nation fall into a power category, +1 for each category. If your a failed state or city state 0. If you're a super power +5.
  8. We will have resolutions at the U.N. security council. Also see- International Court of Justice (ICJ), World Health Organisation (WHO), United Nations High Commission for Refugees (UNHCR), Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES). and Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NNPT).
  9. Edit the game in Source Mode. Editing in Visual Mode and creating code problems may result in your edits being undone or full of garbled data.
  10. Research your nation on sites like- Wikipedia, the BBC, CNN, ITN, Encyclopedia Britannica, and so on. You could fined handy stuff like this Lithuanian Navy and resources: It did have a navy in 1933!.
  11. 1/2 a game year per real day.
  12. If new turn is not started by mod, player can still post player events, but before post he must write year. For example year 1947 ended and mod did not started next turn. Then player writes: *1987.5* Countryname: Country improves economy and blah blah blah.
  13. Game is archived every 10 years/20 turns.
  14. A new image file is created for every new map, which is created every two years.
  15. After a nation has been inactive for 5 years (10 turns), the user will be removed from the game.
  16. You may create proxy nations and use them in turns.
  17. Limited O.T.L. desasters, such as earthquakes and tropical storms will occur. Mod event's that are real life events, not daft or bias.
  18. No aggressiveness directed toward other players or off-topic feuds.
  19. There will be 3 mods.
  20. There will be map-maker and a map-maker deputy to take over if the mapmaker is away or ill.
  21. Hyper-development, wizards, E.T.s, fantasy and/or sci-fi are not to be used.
  22. 1 turn per OTL day. 1 turn = 6 months ATL game time.
  23. A new turn starts at 22.00:00UTC.

Technical dat​aEdit

Mod RulesEdit

  1. Mods must be plausible and must not target any particular nation.
  2. Carving large empires is NOT a cause for mod targeting, unless the empire is silly or unfairly won.

Vassal RulesEdit

  1. Unless the vassal can provide real military aid to a country, it cannot be used in an algorithm. For example, Poland and Mongolia can provide military assistance to the USSR, but Tannu Tuva and Danzig are virtually useless, so use you common sense!
  2. Vassals may declare war instead of the actual suzerain nation.
  3. Some rebel armies and terrorists are in league with nation states (examples- the Contras worked for the U.S.A., F.A.R.C. worked for the USSR and the PLO was a Libyan terrorist proxy.), these also count as vassals but use different rules which are listed in a lower section.

Terrorist and rebel groupings rulesEdit

Terrorists can do things like the [1] and [2], so +1 to the nation your helping and -1 to the victim nation. Special forces and home land security forces can be used to defeat them as in [3] and [4].

The mods will aso help or hinder terrorists with the use of 'public opinion' and wartime morale. Eventually most nations, save for a few like Israel and Russia, will get fed up in time and want peace.

Rebel groups like UNITA, the Contras, Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam, FARC and the PLO do control some land and so count as an (illegal) city-state in places like [5] and [6]. They count as Vassel states, but can also commit acts of terrorism.

Game playEdit


TA1980 1981.0 map


  • Poland builds 100 more light tanks.
  • Egypt: Reassures it's fellow Arabs that it does not intend to harm them if not provoked. Egypt criticized Soviet foreign policy in Europe and the Horn of Africa for making some of the global troubles. A giant sand berm-wall is dug along the Egypt-Libya border. The water supply in Cairo and Alexandria is improved. 10,000 are enlisted into the army raising it to 235,000. The navy guards Port Sai'id and Alexandria. The air force puts up a few patrols over Cairo, Aswan and Alexandria. Security is upped on the Aswan Dam. The president reassures his people in a radio message.
    • Libyan D: We propose a non-aggression pact.
    • Egypt D: We accept the pact.
    • Libyan D: Fantastic!
  • China: We continue to supply Pro-Chinese guerrillas and support Socialist/Communist politicians in all nations in which we influence. We continue to keep good relations with NATO to show we do not support the USSR, we continue to maintain our large armies.
  • USA: We continue to provide support for the Mujahadeen and other anti-communist guerrillas such as the Contras and we begin to consider direct intervention in Afghanistan and in Central America as well as Angola. We strongly condemn the USSR for the crackdowns in East Germany and Poland. We begin to use US Green Berets to locate and destroy any pro-communist gangs in the US, including the WUO, BLA, M19CO, UFF. The US prepares a massive military buildup in West Germany in preparation for a potential invasion of the country by the Warsaw Pact and begin conducting war games to simulate this and prepare ourselves for such an attack. We consider attempting to invade Cuba should they refuse to stop supporting communist gangs in the US. We also decide to focus more on research on alternative fuels. We consider tightening our sanctions against South Africa should the apartheid situation not end. We begin a little series of economic reforms called Reaganomics to reduce inflation and fix the US economy. We begin research in secrecy on the SDI, also known as the "Star Wars Project". We continue to send support and advisors to anti-communist nations worldwide against communist guerrillas/gangs. We send troops to Libya to fight off the PLO and stop them from attacking the Israelis. After seeing that the West Germans will not allow the wargames to happen there, we decide to host the wargames in France instead.
    • Afghan Mujahadeen:We continue to wage a guerrilla war and hold on to the offensives of the USSR. We also continue to grow in numbers and decide to launch raids on military positions on USSR and local government bases. We hope these raids will cause as much damage to the USSR's war effort in Afghanistan.
    • Nicaraguan Contras: We continue to wage guerrilla war on the government. We begin to launch attacks on several cities across Nicaragua and commence the recruitment of thousands of people. We try to reduce our human rights abuses so we can gain more support amongst the people of Nicaragua.
    • UNITA: We continue to wage guerrilla war on the government as we gain more support amongst the people. Savimbi personally leads an offensive deep into enemy territory to defeat government forces.
  • A leading Ohio electronics scientist tells the US Senate that Project Excalibur would be very expensive and technology would need to be developed over years. He states that truck mounted battlefield directed energy weapons may be possible in about 2000, but a lot of research and testing is needed. He said that anti-sat missiles like the USA-193 could be the answer, but they will only be possible by about 1995 and a lot of research and testing is needed. He also indicates that Tasers are possible, but Electrolasers are 45 years in to the future. Whipsnade (talk) 14:41, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
    • Ronald Reagan states that he will take chances to make sure such technology is achieved.Ratc3333 Here, Prepare for Combat (talk) 15:40, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
    • A leading MIT scientist dismisses this out of hand, and states that without major economic changes, these technologies are beyond America's reach. Praetorian Flag RoG Flag Mafia (Questions?) Falklands Flag
    • Ronald Reagan asks what suggestions the MIT scientist makes to make major economic changes.
    • The MIT scientist shrugs and says 'I'm a Scientist, not an economist'
    • Ronald Reagan asks for Congress' suggestions on major economic reforms in an attempt to make the Star Wars Project possible.
  • Iran: We continue to support the PLO in Lebanon. We declare neutrality in afghanistan as we are not friendly with the americans but communist influence is also in bad taste of the government, but are weary of Iraq.
    • Hezbollah: We begin to spread our influence through iran, and iraq. Iraq, a majority Shia nation, is ruled by a Sunni leader. More people join our league. In Iraq, we try to appeal to the peasants, the hardcore shias, and the Kurds, a hated ethnic group by the SUNNI Saddam Hussein. We also begin to support the Mujahideen in Afghanistan. We support the PLO and the LNF in the Lebanese Civil War, whose country we begin to influence ourselves.
      • American Diplomacy:We thank you for the assistance of the Hezbollah to the Mujahadeen. In exchange we shall send supplies to aid in your mission against Hussein's regime and against the influence of the USSR and China.
  • Brazil: We continue to move towards an entirely anti-communist society, and as leader of the group, helping the other members of A.A.C.I.I.A.L to remove any particularly mindful journalists with intent to eliminate any communist ideals on the continent. Although we do not pledge entire support for the US, we begin to build a series of resolutions that, we hope, will eventually allow us to form a firmer alliance, in return for added security against potential communist difficulties. Also, there is some appeal from politicians to 'please shorten the block acronym' after many formerly influential politicians lose popularity after forgetting the second 'I'. This is not seen as a priority. Also, the government moves towards establishing an entirely right-wing society in an effort to eliminate any possibility of an infiltration of policy by communist ideals. (P.S - please put us on the map?)
  • A Paraguay senator says the A.A.C.I.I.A.L. could be called the "Asunción Treaty Organization" after the place where the treaty was signed.Whipsnade (talk) 13:46, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
  • Yes, Brazil is now on the map.Whipsnade (talk) 13:46, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
  • Thanking you. Kronicsunflower (talk) 16:36, October 28, 2013 (UTC)
  • India: We begin cracking down on the Rebels, and effectively wipe them out. We offer an alliance to all other Hindu States. We demand China ceases aid towards the rebels. We begin to manufacture another 100 nuclear missiles.
  • North Korea: Begins to supply the PLO with arms and advisors secretly.
  • KUF: Training starts. Secretly prepares for an attack on the White House steals an american AC-130 support plane.
  • A leading N. Korean General states that the real enemies are the American ‘colonial’ forces in the region, S. Korea and Japan. Destroying the White House is both risky and might be the sort of thing that would unite most nations against them in revenge and anger. He urges destroying a major S. Korean dockyard instead. He comments that Pusan’s Jagalchi Fish Market and Hanjin Heavy Industries facilities would be “better off blown up”. Whipsnade (talk) 15:15, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
  • Ireland: We ask for an alliance with the USSR. and we creat the PRA, Pictain Revolutionary Army, the IRA for Scotland.
    • Try helping the Scottish National Liberation Army (SNLA), it's a small band of letter bombers from Aberdeen and rather inert, but if it was worked on for a few years.Whipsnade (talk) 20:39, October 27, 2013 (UTC)
    • USSR (mod): We accept.
    • IRA Training and propaganda continue.
  • France: With the heightened tensions on the continent, France begins to revitalize and expand the Maginot Line. The French Navy is put on high alert and all nuclear assets are mobilized as a deterrent. France admonishes the USSR over its crackdowns and supports the U.S.A. Construction of 100 Nuclear missiles is begun to add to the current stockpile of 598 and plans for another nuclear reactor are put into motion. A small draft is instituted to add another 25.000 men to the French Army. France sends elements of the French Foreign Legion to assist the The Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda. Plans are made for the construction of a nuclear powered aircraft carrier.
    • The Front for the Liberation of the Enclave of Cabinda: We thank France for the assistance of the French Foreign Legion and continue to wage guerrilla actions against communist forces
  • Libya: Continues development and industrialization. Canals begin to be built inland from the Mediterranean in attempts to not only improve the infrastructure but to benefit the local ecology, though it is believed it will take nearly a decade to build all the wanted canals. Oil drilling is increased in efforts to stimulate the economy further. The military continues to be improved with heavy emphasis on the navy. We begin a secret nuclear program.
    • Libyan D: We ask the USSR to aid us in our nuclear program and to sell us up-to-date weaponry.
    • USSR: We will sell you weaponry, but not Nuclear. The World is too volatile to allow more nuclear armed states.
    • Libyan D: Very well, we will accept the up-to-date not-nuclear arms and will continue our nuclear program without your aid. Thanks.
      • PLO: Continues terrorist attacks across Israel, but begins to focus more on securing and defending the lands currently not held by Israel. We begin raids into Israeli armories in attempts to improve our armaments, and this had been mildly successful.
        • American Diplomacy: We request that you stop your terror attacks on Israel or else face certain defeat by American forces.
        • PLO Heavily Paraphrased D: COME AT ME, BRUH. ALLAHU AKBAR!
        • Hezbollah D: we will stop all actions in Afghanistan if you commit bullets against the pLO. we will be forced to see you as an enemy, and call for jihad.
  • West Germany: The West German military begins conducting drills near the rear of the country towards western europe far from the East-West border using large forces of its new Leopard 2 tanks in large scale tank drills with some individual modifications made by soldiers to some of the units to specialise them to their units specific task. West Germany also begins to Reform the GSG-9 into a special commando unit more geared towards fighting in unconventional ways much like the US Special forces. The German economy also continues to advance past their East German neighbor becoming a European powerhouse. The German political system also continues to push for a European Community. The military begins to openly construct defenses on the East-West border in preparation for any sort of conflict deploying multiple divisions to hold the line. The Capital at Bonn deploys huge amounts of aerial defenses and anti-armor defenses with the Air Force being designated to aerial patrols across the country preventing any sort of huge surprise attack. The German armed forces also go on a large expansion campaign using its previous economic miracle and continueing and thriving auto industry to push towards an increase from 500,000 troops proper to nearly 650,000 and by 1990 almost 1 million. This is done as a large and very well off training program which will maintain the integrity of the German armed forces and their ability to fight as NATO's Backbone armed forces.
    • West German D: We Deny the US all attempts at Wargames but sanctions the buildup. West germany says the US made no attempt to contact the West German government about any sort of Buildup or attempt at wargames hence it will not be tolerated or Sanctioned. The US must be more considerate of one of its most powerful allies in Europe.
    •  Let's calm down there "most powerful ally."
    • American Diplomacy: We would like to apologize for the unauthorized wargames.
    • French Diplomacy: You are welcome to perform the wargames in France in conjunction with French forces.
    • American Diplomacy: Thank you for your cooperation.
    • French Diplomacy: We will also be performing our own Naval exercises and you may join in those if you wish. We also ask to purchase weapons from you
  • Saudi Arabia: King Khalid, of the Saud family, begin to note that his health is starting to fail. As a result, he begins to transfer power to his brother and presumptive heir, Faud. Prince Faud grows the military, which is seen as a move to unify Arabia, which he had talked about in the past. Kuwait, Bahrain, Qatar, and the UAE are all influenced to become extremely friendly with Saudi Arabia. Meanwhile, we use our control over OPEC to improve our relations with other nations in the GCC, and begin to prove that our unification would be beneficial for all parties involved. With money that is taken in, our cities are improved, with modern medicine and technology starting to grow in cities like Riyadh and Medina. We condemn Iraq for its war against Iran.
  • Whipsnade, you undid my post!
    • Unintended, editing error, Saudi is welcome.

  • The IRA and Irish put up a brave, but hopeless fight as the British forces march from N. Ireland in to pro-Soviet Southern Ireland and take county of Louth to form a buffer zone with the North. County Donegal is invaded and formally annexed. A 400 man garrison is stationed at Carlingford, County Louth and Lifford, County Donegal. The IRA detonated a car bomb in Enniskillen as a counter attack. Protests hit the streets of Dublin. Poland offers diplomatic support to the now pro-Soviet Irish, but is shy of getting formally involved in the issue.
Algo-UK 40, Ireland 16. Irish forces collapsed into disarray and retreat. Ireland is losing as the UK annex Donegal and occupy Louth. Whipsnade (talk) 21:40, October 28, 2013 (UTC)

We continue with our nuclear research program, but make no comment on the war in Pakistan.

We guarantee support to Iran if they get attack by India. We continue to attack the Hezbollah and capture several insurgency who where making artisanal bombs.(How can I fight the Iraqi Hezbollah, did I need an algorithm?)

We complete our nuclear program and begin developing parts for basic missile defences. (Just to check - is this reasonable? It's kind of hard to decide what the other nations would agree to when Brazil is the only player nation).

The air foce starts to receive an upgrade and some patrol boat along a fregate is built. Two major operations in the region of Baghdad allow the capture of five Hezbollah members while many other are killed, some of them were in reality political enemies. A crackdown is made in Iraqi Kurdistan where several enemies from from groups are arrested. Say nothing about the Chinese conquest.
    • Just wanted to point out the fact that Iraq is in the middle of a huge war vs Iran. Everyone is acting as if this is not happening. Iraq is being invaded by Iran, with support coming on many sides against them.
      • Agreed, the pending war in Europe did not happen when Rwanda, Burundi, UK, GDR and USSR never posted, while France and FRG only did once. Egypt was looking towards booting communism out of the region and turned a blind eye to Hezbollah/Iran. Libya is happily attacking Israel via the PLO. Alas, others like Saudi did not post much and Iraq and Iran are left adrift, whilst the Derg smerks at me in Ethiopia. God, oil prices must be high! I also made a mistake over Tunisia last turn, Libya has annexed it.
      • Not that, this:
      • That is what I meant by "Egypt turned a blind eye to Hezbollah/Iran". It then then forgot the 1980-1988 Gulf War by mistake.
    • Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, Ahmed Jibril- It bombs an northern Israeli cafe and Israel is scared as martial law is created.Whipsnade (talk) 01:17, October 31, 2013 (UTC)
    • American Diplomacy: We strongly condemn your nation for the crackdowns in Kurdistan and request that you stop or face the threat of invasion.
  • Egyptian D: Egypt offers 10,000 guns to Iraq, (stupid of Egypt not to honor the earlier pact with Iraq, despite the war being not a direct concern to Egypt, united we could take on Hezbollah and the Derg).

Thanks for playing, lads!

It appears that this version is flawed.

  1. As said above, the Gulf War was ignored.
  2. I confess to some errors of judgment on who conquered who.
  3. WW3 in Europe did not happen.
  4. 1/3 of the players did not come back and others left.
  5. I did not agree with an attempt at Wisconsin declaring UDI.
  6. The scenario was no clear on the Iran-Iraq war.
  7. Slight modification to terrorist rules.
  8. I give up being a mod, but still map make.
  9. It starts in 1981, not 1980, making the name wrong by a year.
  10. It is not of Alternate 1921 status.
  11. I think It's thus screwing up.

Reximus55 is wrong, there is a proxy war in Kurdistan. Iran's and Iraq's players have avoided open warfare.</span> Reset occurring tonight due to the above errors. You can keep your nation's. Those IP's who never came back will lose theirs. </span>Whipsnade (talk) 02:00, October 31, 2013 (UTC) </u>
