Alternative History

I think this is shaping up into one of DD's better pages. Nice work! One small request, that you can feel free to ignore: would you terribly mind getting a user name? It will make things easier to discuss with you, and make you easier to contact. The thing about an IP number is that it changes if you ever use a different computer.

Contact with ANZC?

Due to the Philippines proximity and relatively minor damage, I don’t think there will be any need for a “contact” with ANZS since its likely they never lost contact with Australia and New Zealand at all after Doomsday. Mitro 14:32, 7 July 2009 (UTC)

With the satellite network down and undersea cables presumably damaged, they would have to re-establish contact at some point. And since the Timeline implies that Aussies didn't know what was going on in China and Japan until explorers started going out in ships, it could fit that contacting the Philippines was not a high priority. They look close on a map, but there are almost 2000 miles between them. Benkarnell 17:19, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
There are still other forms of communication, especially long range raido and the Philippines will have their own ships that could be bringing through messages. We shouldn't assume that every nation become a lone island after DD (though its ironic since both ANZC and the Philippines are islands, haha). Mitro 17:44, 7 July 2009 (UTC)
How could such contact play out plausibly? mdc_1957 11 July 2009

Tiawan problem

this really should have come up before, but it didn't and now tiawn is cannon, and it and this article contradict each other-- this article says tiawan completely collasped, and the tiawan article maintains the contrary. this is the older page by quite a bit, but things would work out smoother if this page simply referrs to china rather than taking tiawan out of DoomsDay.

Good eye, I think I changed most of the references to Taiwan to reflect the new change. Despite our best efforts things do get past us when we graduate articles into canon. Though we have procedure to put an article back as a proposal when these contradictions come up, I think the references to Taiwan were minor enough that it would be uncessary to invoke the procedure.

I think I read somewhere that the Philippines does not have control of all of Sabah. How much exactly does the country control, so that I can make the maps accurate? Godfrey Raphael (talk) 14:15, January 26, 2013 (UTC)

The Brunei article, I believe, would be where you saw it.

For all purposes, GR, they control all of it. The map on the Indinesia page shows the division, more or less, though it's off slightly in the south and in the west. The boundaries, overall, are some sort of combination of that map and my world map.

October 15, 2013 Earthquake and Typhoon Haiyan

Can we add this to the article?  The 7.2 Magnitude Earthquake that hit Bohol and Typhoon Haiyan that hit Leyte Province could be added if this would be considered cannon.Gillan1220 (talk) 05:53, December 24, 2014 (UTC)

The caretaker/author can add it.

Earthquake still happen, Typhoon pretty much not going to.

Possible Target Site?

The Crow Valley Range Complex in the Tarlac Province, at it's time during the Cold War, was the main bombing range of the United States Armed Forces stationed in the Phiippines.  Weapons such as SAMS were tested here,as well as military excerises of allies of the US.  Any chance of it being a targeted by Soviet nukes just like the Pacific Missile Range Site in Hawaii?

For more info, you may read about this site in Wikipedia.

The Pacific Missile Range Facility is used for far more than a range - radars, sonars, etc. are also located there, in addition to the basic things needed for a large air base. Crow Valley, just a firing range. Lordganon (talk) 11:44, July 17, 2015 (UTC)

This is a crude map of US bases in the country made in 1990, closest info I can get yet. While three sites were targeted, any chance the others would have been targeted as well? Gillan1220 (talk) 15:57, February 25, 2016 (UTC)

Adding sections including current ones and how the Filipinos deal with them

Hi there guys, I would like to ask permission to alter changes where I will check the OTL events around our country that was changed since it was almost 38 years from the PoD.

My biggest plan is to add the how the Filipinos deal with the sudden loss of OFW relatives, children, or parents where they lived mostly in the United States, United Kingdom, and other countries that have been targeted during Third World War. Gabzcervo (talk) 12:11, 3 January 2021 (UTC)

Other natural events

One thing this article lacks is both the 1990 Luzon earthquake and the 1991 Eruption of Mount Pinatubo. The damages would be neglected since the country was still recovering from Doomsday. So the reconstruction of Cabanatuan City would take years while the irradiated ruins of Baguio City would remain as is.

There was an earthquake in Surigao in February 2017, Metro Manila in April 2019, and Cotabato in October 2019.

Taal Volcano would also erupt on January 12, 2020, resulting yet another evacuation as per OTL. Gillan1220 (talk) 04:33, 18 March 2021 (UTC)
