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.

Progress Report

Hi,

As our Developers Diary had been quite for a while I want to give you an update about the pogress that have been made and that have not been posted here.
At first: I havn't new unit for you are any other picture.

Now the things that will be new in the next version for RotR:
My Hannover submod will be inclueded in the next version with all previews I posted in the thread of my good old submod. This won't be the only German state Saxony and Prussia will obviously be reworked too. Furthermore the USA (there is already a preview in the world) will be new in the next release. And of course we will improve Great Britain and France!

With reworking or adding I don't mean that only new units will be added, we will do much more for those 6 states. Every state will get it's own techtrees. If you take a look at the USA preview (or my submod) you will see that each fraction will get individual techs but also some fractions will share som techs as they represent a common pogress (at least in Europe), an example is the Scientific Method, Classical Economy or Natural History.

But that's not all. Each of the six fractions will get a historical government (obviously the own which were 1783 in place) with historical portraits if they are available (for some persons we couldn't find a portrait). Furthermore there will be more historical persons, generals, gentleman, diplomats, admirals either available at the start or recruitable. Sadly, due limits of the game engine we can not offer you to play with Napoleon or Wellington. But you will have the opportunity to play with Nelson, Blücher, Scharnhorst (as a Hanoverian general, he joint the Prussian army only in 1801), the Duke of York, Anthony Wayne Dumouriez, the Marquies de la Fayette, Adam Smith, Joseph Banks, Georg Lichtenberg, Immanuel Kant, Benjamin Franklin and many more.
Also the European kings and queens will get historical portraits.

I hope I could satisfy your curiosity.

If you have any further suggestions, ideas for techs or the feeling that a historical person must be inclueded, just post them here or in the TWC:

So I installed it several times and the error message keeps appearing: "Application load error error 5:0000065434"... WHAT do I do?! I tried to play without closing the tab but it crashes after almost every battle! I have Empire through steam; windows 7, 64-bit, Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 B35 with 2.90 GHz, Ram: 8 GB, Graphics card: AMD Radeon HD series 7900 or 7970 because the computer says it's 7900 but we bought 7970... So, any help is appriciated!!!

Latest patch is good, but there are a few issues.

First, in the campaign, buildings and units cost far too much and the empire-wide income is far too low. I played on normal as Britain and the AI has a stupid tendency to make ridiculous demands when you ask for a trade agreement, like giving them territory or indefinite military access (wtf). By 1705 all I had done was build a few roads (paved roads costing 3100 or something stupid compared to a measly income of a few hundred) and minor buildings which hardly increased my income either.

Secondly, there are a few issues with unit cards when playing a custom battle - the artillery for Britain don't have names and it's difficult to identify the differences between them, and because there are so many variations it's also hard to select them because of the way the interface is designed. The music is nice but the campaign music plays Native American music all the time even when in Europe, although installing a different music mod fixed this for me.

Another issue is that the sounds for the cannons on ships and land battles are a bit too loud and they tend to sound a little bit jarring, but it's not too bad.

I was wondering if I could help you mod empire. I think I could be useful in historical research and technology.

You gentlemen are doing a great job with this game. I love the mod, the accurate uniforms, the effects, and CAI and the BAI. I can't wait for the next version. I as a historian of this particular century find your entire mod to be probably the most impressive out of all the total war mods for every total war game. It is rather funny I had tried darth mod a few months prior and what really weighed it down for me were the uniforms, none of them were accurate and there were very few substantial changes to them , though there were many new units. However for me it is all about quality not quantity and I feel you are creating this mod to satisfy the highest quality possible, thank you.
