Imperial Splendour attempts to create the best Empire: Total War experience possible without destroying the essence of the game, with an eye towards expanding and enriching the experience, while adding to the game's realism whenever possible. IS 2.2.1b focus on Britain and France, adding two periods so as to allow an evolution of the uniforms. IS made also a large rework on the visual and sound aspect so as to make ETW as enjoyable as last TW games. The CAI and BAI are totally reviewed, the Great Campaign is now really more challenging, and it will be difficult for you to impose to the World your imperial splendour.

Hi all,

Here is the Preview of the late Saxon army. The late Saxon army was reformed several times after the catastrophic events in 1757. Towards the end of the 18th century the Saxons used the Prussian army as their role model in drill and organisation. Still the uniforms and regiments stayed in the tradition the army of Augustus the Strong.

But take a look at the screenshots:

I know that the grand campaign for this mod is suppose to a challenge. But is it normal for Poland to churn out over 10 full stacks. And they're not even crap stacks they mass recruit a lot good units.

I have one problem with this mod, some nations seem to recruit artillery only. Russia for an example is running around with a full cannon-army.

Lastly, I like the new model you have for the catholic missionaries and I think it would work well for certain factions, namely Spain and Portugal but not so much for factions such as Austria, France, or the Italian states those missionaries would probably look similar to the base model in the game sort of like bishops or cardinals.

Also I noticed some sort of graphical glitch with the new fort models on the campaign map. From one side the fort looks perfectly normal but on the other side it simply doesn't appear to be there, check the artillery fort outside of what I assume is Budapest in Hungary.

Might also be a good idea to rename the "Italian States" to the Papal States as that is in fact what most of the faction's lands are comprised of, the lands of the Pope at the time.

I don't believe late British soldiers, just your average line infantry, would have been carrying swords, the officers yes but I don't know about your regular enlisted man. Idk if anyone else knows but maybe replace the swords on regular troops with a scabbard for a bayonet or something else. I can send some pictures to get ideas.

I noticed that the late British infantry units appear to all be carrying swords, why is that or will it be changed? Also I believe British soldiers back then would have been carrying more kit on their backs, I can send some reference pictures to help out. As well, I believe you mentioned you were planning on adding Hesse-Kassel to replace the Westphalian faction? I would recommend personally replacing it with the Electorate of Cologne, but ultimately it is your decision. I also have a few other suggestions and issues I noticed with the latest version of Imperial Splendour if you'd like to hear more please get in touch with me. Great job so far can't wait for the next version! :)

To your first question, I did not create them so I don't know, I think they were worn the whole 18th century?!
To your 2nd question yes on the march, but not when engaged in battle.
Hessen-Kassel was the most powerfull state in this area in the late 18th century so we decided against Cologne (had not a notable army anyway)
And you can always contact me or wangrin via pm or visit us on TWC and post your ideas there;)
