[RELEASE]A NEW TRUST: Real Life Mod Dec 1933
 
This is the official first release of my Real Life Mod based on the wrestling scene of late 1933.

I had been working on and researching this since TEW2016 first came out and am glad to have a final product before a newer version of TEW.

Research
Obviously with the time being so far back, the research was quite tedious and less organized than other eras. Almost everything I learned was through other's research that was posted online. This was supplemented with my own archival newspaper research as well as books from or on the time period. Specifically I'd like to mention the following help/websites that I got this info from:

Wrestlingdata.com
WrestlingClassics.com
wrestling-titles.com
legacyofwrestling.com
wrestlingheritage.co.uk
prowrestlinghistoricalsociety.com
boxrec.com
waprowrestling.weebly.com
territorydays.blogspot.com
wrestlingclassics.com - specifically the Lou Thesz Forum
and many many more.

Stats
Though the game has over 1400 characters, I probably only seen about 25-50 of them in the ring. So these stats are much more subjective than any other Real Life Mod. For that reason, I have set the game to random variance mode. Obviously the player can change that at their description.

Art
If you download this Mod, I suggest also getting the Skin and Picture Pacts I made for it. I attempted to use as much authentic art from wrestling posters at the time for all the events and logo pics.

More Info
I have some background on that time period on the website for this Mod. However if you have any interest in learning more about it there are some books to get in to. The first would be Fall Guys, The Barnums of Bounce, which came out only a few years after this game is set. It has an amazing behind the scene perspective from the time. Also, basically anything from Tim Hornbaker should be required reading for wrestling enthusiasts.

Hope you enjoy:

New Trust Web Site: The place where you can download all the parts to the Mod, read the hype and watch my silly ad for it.

Or if you just want it now, here are the direct links to the files:

Looks great. I'll give it a run this evening while I watch Survivor Series. Thanks for all the hard work you put in on this. Very unique mod.

Fantastic. What a project. Thank you.

Looks promising will there be updates and more people added?

Not sure yet actually. I (along with some others) have been beta testing it for about 10 months, so i actually have added a lot since then. I might take a break from editing (unless there are errors of course) for a bit. Then I can figure if I want to focus on a different year or just expanding to an XL version of this. Maybe both. I would like to do one in 1937 or when the NWA (alliance) formed.

Not sure yet. But if there are any important people you feel I missed, let me know.

Wow what an awesome random mod to come out of the blue. Im excited to test this when I get home. Question is, are the future workers set to a specific date? Or do they keep coming in forever. Example Do we have people like AJ Styles, Roman Reigns, Dean Amrose, Dalton Castle etc?

This looks intriguing. I may have to give it a download when I'm home. I've been looking for something a bit different to play.

No modern, but obviously you can add them. Just for that decade I have 1400 characters, and I believe the next oldest Mod is 1970.

Why Now?

I am trying to get this out by the end of this month, because of the significance of the date.

Thanksgiving weekend 1933 (85 years ago this week) is when all the promoters made the New Trust. Game starts Week 1 of December with the fallout of this new syndicate.

Enjoy

Out of curiosity what happens in the mod between September 1939 and September 1945?

its set with events until summer of 1937. Thats a big changing point in the wrestling scene. I feel like that would be the next mod and obviously all the important war events would be included.

This is more of the prequel to that.

I was just curious since I'm not sure how you could viably replicate the war within TEW. That's why I was always thought that a birth of the NWA would be a great scenario to build one of these early mods around.

It would definitely be hard, but there were still plenty of wrestling during that time. I would think about making lots of people on hiatus and not many new workers.

One of the things I would like is to edit the different other genre section. Instead of just MMA, Movies and Music, be able to make other reason they take off, including war.

Man Mountain Dean is rated way too high, especially in charisma and mat wrestling. Joe Savoldi should be around a B- in popularity. There's tons of other issues.

Did you even watch NWA-NYC?








(Really cool idea for a mod.)

Several companies have no owners and/or bookers. Is that an oversight or due to lack of information regarding the time?
