Timeline events are historical events that affect gameplay in Modern Times (Tropico 4). They can be viewed up to 10 years in advance by looking at the timeline.

The specific events that happen are randomly generated; in some games, a certain event may occur on one year while in another game a different event will happen on the same date.

Since timeline events don't occur "randomly," they can't be disabled by running a sandbox game with no random events.
