In 1964, Nelson Mandela and many other leaders of the African National Congress (ANC) were charged with treason. Instead of being sent to prison like in real life, they are given the death penalty. The Black population of South Africa are outraged and protest against the South African government. This leads to a civil war when South African police fired upon a group of anti-apartheid protesters in Pretoria. For 30 years, the country was torn apart. In the year 1993, the South African government agrees to negotiate with the ANC when a new, more lenient Frederik Willem de Klerk becomes President. Apartheid is abolished after heavy pressure from the international community and the ANC in the year 1995 leading to the National Party forming a coalition with the ANC and IFP.

In Central Africa, years of violence and bloodshed caused by centuries of Western imperialism has left the region greatly damaged, leaving new nations to rise from the ashes of war. In one of these nations, the newly formed Central African Republic, Joseph Manzala, a prestigious general who fancies himself as a great political leader, launches a military coup against the government seizing power within a matter of days. A devout follower of the ideals of Pan-Africanism, Manzala quickly begins expanding into neighbouring countries with the intent of creating a new African superpower after centuries of Western imperialism have rendered the region shattered and divided. Manzala’s ambitions soon cause many other Central African nations also damaged by Western powers such as Gabon, Angola, Uganda, Rwanda and the Democratic Republic of Congo thus forming the People’s Federation of Central Africa, or PFCA for short. Together, they eventually force the remaining countries of the region to join, either through conquest, show of force or persuasion.

With global warming becoming already becoming a threat, a global recession occurs in the year of 2009 leading to hyperinflation across the globe. The prices of resources such as oil and coal rapidly increase. In Europe, the only places that have these valuable resources are in Northern Romania and Scandinavia. In 2013, the European Union and an alliance of Balkan and Eastern European states known as the Intermarium fight over the last resources in the Northern Romania region. This becomes known as the 'Resource Crisis'. By 2017, there was little oil left. The EU and the Intermarium fought another war, this time more costly and bloody than before know as the Danube War.

By 2026 and the end of the Danube War in Europe, the European Union turns to alternative power sources such as solar and nuclear power. South Africa follows in the EU's footsteps and becomes one of the few countries outside of Europe to become self-sufficient on new alternative power sources. However, the PFCA, Africa's newest superpower, still uses the old fossil fuels to power their mighty army and infrastructure. With resources in Central Africa running out, the PFCA turns its attention to the countries of Namibia and Botswana. They still have plenty of resources but only share them with South Africa. On June 4th, 2029, the PFCA invades the two countries overrunning them in a couple of days. The Namibian and Batswana governments-in-exile request that South Africa intervenes and attempts to push back the PFCA invasion.

This looks like it could be a very interesting mod. I like the unique setting and factions, not many BF mods do Africa (except maybe POE, but that was a long time ago.) Good luck with this!

If POE is Point Of Existence, there's no Africa in it.

And yeah, I like Africa too.

I believe he is referring to that 1 map set in Sudan called Blue Nile in POE2. Also, I believe that POE1 for BF1942/Vietnam not that I've played it was set in Africa

for some reason, this mod reminds me of the movie "Blood Diamond"

Yeah it has that sort of vibe I guess, shame there aren't more films set in Africa, probably one of the most beautiful and unique continents on the planet that's often either written off because it is considered dangerous (which a lot of it is) or because no one seems to care about unf urgently. Out of the ones that do exist though, Black Hawk Down is probably my fav :)

Yeah, I can't agree more. And the same thing when it comes to games. So far it is only Far Cry 2 that did the 'African' setting, and that is really a good game.

Far Cry 2 was such a good game and for me, along with COD World At War and the Battlefield Bad Company games, was my introduction to the shooter genre after playing nothing but FIFA. It was really something fresh.
