I hope one of the things that ttl won’t have are antibiotics as penicillin is caused by a fluke, and I’d like to see a ‘modern’ world where infant mortality is still high due to disease as medicine and the general knowledge of disease is less advanced.Spoilers! And industrialization might look somewhat different from what we saw OTL.
World Wars are also probably going to look somewhat different, depending on what colonialism looks like in TTL. Which again, as we've already seen is taking somewhat of a different cast than OTL.
The Xasar industrializing first is not a given by any means. Economically speaking, they're hardly as central as they were even a few centuries ago. The times, they are a-changing.
We're about two hundred years ahead of schedule, roughly, but if history shows us one thing, it's that technology isn't linear and there's no path of progress. Agriculture can be developed without the state. The state can be developed without wheels. Writing can exist without monarchs. All of which is to say that the modernity of the White Huns might not look like modernity as we know it. We're witnessing the very initial phases of the birth of the "modern world" now.
My only promise is the one I've made since the very beginning. I will end this timeline when we reach something akin to modernity, by which I mean the era that the people living in the White Huns universe consider "modern." There will be no futuristic technological elements, and we will end before those occur. I may even retcon the exact date of the nuclear bomb post I made ages ago (not by much) if need be.
I think that for Christian Europe England or the Rhine make the most sense, although the Rusichi and the Xaxar may industrialise earlier since they are more connected to India via their religion.Estonia.
Kidding. I have no idea yet. I don't plan the timeline that far in advance.
BTW, would Japan colonise Siberia and America? I’d like to see a version of Japan that controls Panama through ittl California even though the Europeans and Indians are colonising in ittl America.
