New Revolts for Africa

Thu May 17, 2018 3:03 pm

Hello everyone

I think in africa existed a lot of independent movement in the XIX and beginning of XX century. Their can be options for a future new revolts in wol.

Emirate of Sanusi (Cyrenaica, Libia)
Image
Mohammed Al.Sanusi
In the leadership of Mohamed (1859 AD - 1902) he reached Senussi at the peak of his strength and his diffusion. Their capital, Jaghbub became "the main commercial center", where the convoys meet all the central and northern parts of Africa, and it was these merchants and their caravans a way to spread Islam in the remote authorities. The power and influence of Muhaded.caused conflicts with the Ottoman Empire, who were expelling the movement towards the deserts furthest from Libya. His main struggle was against French expansionism in Chad Lake and later against Italian colonialism in northern Libya.

Western Sahara or Sahrawis 
Image( i don´t found anyother flag)
Ma al-Aynayn
The most important figure for the Sahrawi people in Western Sahara and Mauritania. He fought against the Spanish advance in Morocco, he faced the sultan of Morocco for not supporting the movement and hindered the French advance in Mauritania and southern Algeria. Their struggle attracted the attention of the German empire, who supports the Saharawis with modern weapons and ammunition.

Batatela Rebellion (Free State of Congo)
Image
Ngongo Lutete
Ngongo supported the Swahili Arabs in their fight against the Belgian expansion in the center of Africa. After his death would begin one of the biggest revolts in the Belgian territory, where thousands of "force publique" would desert to fight against the colonial government. Having modern firearms and the tactical support of the Arabs who by the commerce with Europe knew the western military strategies, the revolt could extend by almost 4 years.

The movement would later influence the independence of the Free State of the Congo in 1960

_________________________________________________________________________________________________________________

What do you think?

These types of movement never teach them in schools, and I think that if Wol does not mention them in the game, they will remain in the memory of the local people.

Do you know more independence movements in the 19th century?

i afraid, depends on the way for aging up, this revolt mode for african civs can be used or not, alejandro.ossio
-> the ethiopians, zulu and egypt use library tech to age up, that mean, use revolt mode for these civs may be difficult to use, or even, can't be used

This is one of those moments where the eternal question of whether Rampo thinks everybody is an idiot but him or whether we are the ones who think Rampo is an idiot arises.

Surely the revolt option could be unlocked in the town centre or elsewhere by just linking it to one of the late game library upgrades?

obviously the revolutions post here are thought for European civs, example: batatela rebellion for the Belgians, sahrawis for Spanish, French &/or Germans etc...

and definitely the second option that gave hoop

Also Europeans can easily revolt because they age up with politicians.
Implying Africans can't because they use library techs.

EDIT:
Sorry, I forgot the first message.

I'm afraid Africans cannot revolt since they age up in a different way, Alejandro Ossio: Ethiopians, Zulu and Egyptians age up using library techs, thus it'd be difficult, or even impossible, for them to revolt.

Rampo, library is the not only building Africans can use in order to start a revolution. Also, library techs that lead to age 5 can be disabled once revolution has started.

He's right tho, Africans cannot revolt. If you code revolution for a civ with Asian UI, the game crashes.
