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:

Can't wait for the next official release of this mod. Any time table for the next version or update being released to download?

For now there is no timetable for the next version. It's done when it's done. But as you can see we are making pogress and I don't think we will start to work on a new fraction after Prussia for the next release.

Yes you've made spectacular progress, keep up the great work. One more question: do you ever plan on going East to redo or revisit the Barbary, Ottoman, Persian, and Indian factions?

Thank you:) And yes we are planning to edit the east but those fractions will be done after we edited the european ones.

Sorry, one more question actually: Looking at Westphalia, will they be made a playable faction? Or will you make any sort of changes to them? If I'm correct I believe the Electorate of Cologne actually occupied much of what Empire calls Westphalia's territory. I don't believe there was any actual state called "Westphalia" until the Napoleonic Wars. Maybe renaming that faction might be in order?

Forts I assume were disabled in RotR, but I don't think all city walls were. I was defending a French city on the Rhine and the walls crumbled after two impacts of round shot. I would say either keep walls in forts in general because they are integral to the play experience and strategy of the game, or just make sure all of the present walls and forts of every city are gone. Also for the next release I would recommend checking up on some of the rebel factions because I noted quite a few units that were just dark brown and without skins. Check up on all of the cities and towns because I found a few militia units from the base game whose textures were all screwed up. This is the lasting report I have fro the next release. I'm very hopeful for the next release, for now, I find some of these bugs to be game breaking for me personally. Excellent work with everything that is functional.

For the main Imperial Splendour pack do you plan on increasing the number of turn per year to at least 4 at some point?

For the early campaign we are planning to increase the number of turns per year to 3
