    Hi guys

    I would like some help finding more Culture shock novels

    Particularly on a grand scale, not just like an MC invented a gun for his own use or inventing game like Othello to sell for cash

    I would like a novel kind of like

    Release that Witch
    Magic Industry Empire

    where you get multiple points of view and there is a vast difference to the lives of the normal people, like getting running water to their homes or electricity. Just stuff like if a medival person moved from thier town to an advanced city I like seeing those reactions

    Are there any other novels like this? MC does not have to be OP and I am not particular if harem or not. Just want to see a developing society that is not just MC and his crew only.


    Thanks

    Maybe:
    Realist Hero
    Knights and Magic (not much of tech, but more like ideas)
    GATE: JSDF Fought Here (though the tech wasn't spread, but it's impact is)
    Santairiku Eiyuuki (not on warfare, but more on social terms(?): irrigation, trash management, religion)

    Thanks for this, this is kinda what i was after, a shame only a few chapters and has not updated in over a year

    Hmm I have tried these and Realist hero is the closest i was looking for, but its too focused on MC drama with his heroines and war

    I really liked Gate at first but it turned into harem antics at the point where i quit it. I might try Santairiku again but the MC doesnt seem to take things seriously and from what I have read the improvements to people lives are only mentioned as an afterthought or summary



    Didn't know this existed, a whole US town transported to Medieval Germany? I will give it a try

    Thanks all!

    While “Ring Of Fire” is good. Especially the beginning, but for me they jump around to many POV or the flow of the novel seems like a bunch of small stories.

    I recommend books like

    The Lost Regiment series by William R. Forstchen
    https://www.goodreads.com/series/56572-lost-regiment

    Island in the Sea of Time series by S.M. Stirling
    https://www.goodreads.com/series/49414-island-in-the-sea-of-time

    Conrad Stargard series by Leo Frankowski
    https://www.goodreads.com/series/43333-conrad-stargard

    Daniel Black series by E. William Brown
    https://www.goodreads.com/series/144936-daniel-black

    Destroyermen by Taylor Anderson
    https://www.goodreads.com/series/54474-destroyermen

    Safehold series by David Weber
    https://www.goodreads.com/series/58713-safehold


    Good luck

    Personally, I love the beginning. But than the character starts focusing on leveling up and starts ignoring relationships he started to grow. Just seems a little selfish. IDK
