Ethan and Braden Productions is a small mapper with 208 subscribers. They mainly do mapping videos, but they also do lots of non-mapping content such as gaming videos, Their main mapping series currently is Youtuber Wars, however an Alternate Future of Europe series is in the planning. They also sometimes do countryball animations.
Summary of their history in mapping
Ethan and Braden Productions started mapping in mid-2016. Braden was inspired to do mapping by Daniel Mapper, Li Allen and Hanybal Mapping. Their early mapping videos received lots of criticism for being very low quality. However, over time they have improved.
In 2019, Braden wanted to try something ambitious. He started planning a mapping series known as Alternate Future of World: Scorched Earth. It was going to include a better map, and a high percentage of the episodes were going to be countryball animations. A script for episode 1 was drafted, and some experimental character designs. However due to a combination of a lack of motivation, other projects getting in the way and a general lack of knowledge at the time on how to do even basic countryball animations the project has been indefinitely abandoned. Braden has stated he wants to get back to it one day with a revised script and everything
After this, there was no mapping videos on the channel for a while, but then Braden started making a season 2 of his old AFOE from his second channel. It was met with criticism due to the bad plot and border gore. These were due to it being a continuation of season 1 which had these problems but even worse. Braden came to the conclusion that the series was too crappy for him to fix without changing some of the plot entirely. He has planned a remastered AFOE with a better plot, better map/ cb's and more character development. He was originally going to make an AFOE Lore series where he explained events from AFOE season 1 in detail. That series would be redundant now due to AFOE Remastered being in the works. However, Episode 1 is almost complete so it might be released anyway.
- Braden's official custom nation is called Imperial Garyville. This nation has never been featured in an actual mapping video, however Ethan and Braden ran a nation with the same name on a Minecraft server for some time.
- Ethan has never made a mapping series, however he has stated on multiple occasions that he is working on one.
- Braden's second channel (used mainly for streaming) is called Colonel Integra. is named after Integra Martel, a character from the anime Solty Rei.
