Cool. I missed the Stasi part, though.

There used to be a free one about that goes back to pre-historical eras...
includes Asia too

What about the other 4,988 years?

I don't have time for that.

One of the best parts in Civ I when you completed a game was watching the map of the globe change hands over human history. I loved watching my people swarm inexorably over the earth.

But the animated graphics aren't showing current as I have seen them before.
Quite fascinating really.

I guess the article around it could make this a follow up.

I'd like to see the same for Africa but it would have to come with an epilepsy warning.

Apparently the Nazis were really kicking ass in 1947.

Interesting how stable Switzerland remained once it showed up on the map.

And boy, did Germany ever get big there for about a half a second.

Ok, now it's working...it starts at 350 AD as a default.
Reset it for 3000 BC...and have it go by 1 year or 5 years.

That will get interesting...although you'll have to wait awhile to finish if you do it per year.
 
2013-09-18 08:48:03 PM
Interesting how fragmented Germany was throughout most of that*. The British Isles look positively sedate in comparison...

/ *until Prussia started gobbling up other German territories, of course...

That made me laugh...and the video reminded me of a joke my Uncle told me.
Why is Italy shaped like a boot?
Because they couldnt fit all that Sh*t into a sneaker.

I think its okay,Because im Italian.
I hope I didn't insult anyone...There is no mafia..THERE IS NO MAFIA!!!!!

German occupied countries weren't Germany though. Some of the countries marked as Germany weren't even occupied, but merely allied with Nazi Germany.

But hey, falsifying history made it look more interesting.

Just watching it break up into ~100 little states when the Holy Roman Empire fades, then the little states change hands, made me think "poor guys." No wonder they had not one but TWO flashes in the pan before adopting their more reasonable aspirations they have today.

It shows how power and alliances change outside and inside the little lines on the map.

The takeaway from this is that we didn't start the fire. It was always burning since the world's been turning.

Actually, if you pay attention, you will see that lines consistently represent national boundaries while colors represent alliances.

Fun fact: the only land was part of pre-WWI Germany that was never re-incorporated into Nazi Germany was Nord-Schleswig/Sønderjylland of Denmark.

/Occupied? Yes. But never made German.

But some of the countries marked as the Golden Horde weren't part of Golden Hordia, they were merely subjugated thrall states.

You do realize the idea of the nation-state only dates to the 1600s, and what you are describing is a distinction without a difference
