As some fans found some annoying bugs with the IS 2.2.1b release, we decided to make a little patch so as to make IS enjoyable, and we did it. Enjoy!
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.
the United States of America!
First, the bad news: The US unit rooster will be very limited at the start of the campaign.
Now, the good news. you will have greater variety of light infantry units to recruit than European factions.
The US campaign will be very challenging!
After the the American War of Independence the Continental Army was
disbanded and the regular United States army had a strength of only 1
regiment. This "early" late era will be a period where your access to
regular army units will be limited. It may be advisable that you not
start a war with anyone!
As you developed your technology and knowledge, you will be able to recruit the Legion of the United States; a well trained army capable of fighting in open terrain and along the American frontier.
Furthermore, you will have historical generals like Nathanael Green, Anthony Wayne and Arthur St. Clair.
At start of the campaign you have access to the historical government of the United States:
President: Elias Boudinot
Secretary of State: Robert R. Livingston
Secretary of the Treasury: Robert Morris
Attorney General: Thomas McKean
Secretary of War: Benjamin Lincoln
Secretary of the Navy: Gouverneur Morris
1st: George Washington
2nd: John Adams
3rd: Thomas Jefferson
4th: Alexander Hamilton
5th: Henry Knox
The United States will have their own army and
philosophy techtrees to represent the unique development of the United
States during the late 18 century.
The Philosophy Techtree is divided into 4
different parts. At first there is the scientific advance like "Learned
Society". The 2nd part are general political ideas like the "Federal
System" and consequently the 3rd the acts to transform the ideas into
laws and politics. Finally the 4th are economic ideas and measures.
1.2 Social Contract
3.2 Separation of Powers
5.2 Common Government
6.1 Learned Society
8.1 Scientific Method
8.4 National Bank
9.3 Judiciary Act
9.4 Coinage Act
As the US did not launch a great army or great
army reforms in the late 18th century your option are limited here:
6.1 Continental Army
11.1 Militia Acts
12.3 Military Academy
Be aware that the Constitution is THE keytech for both the philosophy AND army techtree!
The model is made after the original plans of Dr. William Thornton and does not represent the today's building.
