Mali exists at the start of every scenario, but unlike most nations has a different set of cores in many of the scenarios.
Creating Mali Edit
If Mali is annexed, it can be re-created by revolts or releasing a vassal at any point in the game from provinces in the Senegal and Gold regions of East Africa. If this happens, Mali must include one of the following provinces:
- Jenné (the default capital)
If this happens, Mali will have the China techgroup, rather than its usual Muslim one, which will cause it to research more slowly. revolt.txt does not contain any settings for culture or religion, so these will be decided by the capital province. Given that several of these provinces are pagan, and the nation is on later starts, these could potentially be almost anything.
Starting Position Edit
In the 1492 scenario, Mali has lost the province that was rebel-held in 1491, and it is no longer a core.
At the start of the 1617 scenario, Mali has shrunk from its former size, though it has not lost any more cores.
Mali's provinces in the 1700 scenario are the same as in the 1617 one.
By the 1773 scenario, Mali has expanded its territory and its cores.
By the 1795 scenario, Mali has expanded slightly further.
