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.

After two silent years, Imperial Splendour is back with the 2.2.1 Beta release: 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.

Overview:


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.

Our main work has been to complete the former IS 2.1.4 release so as to
update it and enable you to get the best Empire Total War experience.

The greatest innovation in that release of IS is the evolution of the uniforms, separating the Grand Campaign in two periods (three at least), one early and one late Period.

Each period allows you a different roster so as to be the most
historically accurate on the units available, the uniform changes by
stages, so as to be consistent one period corresponds to a major
conflict:

  1. Early: War of Spanish Succession
  2. Late: French Revolutionary wars

The second greatest innovation is the integration of the French Revolution, when a Revolution succeeds in France uniforms will change, according to the period time line, thus it is possible to make a Revolution getting the blue uniforms during the early period even if it is unhistorical. You make History.

The mod is only on a Beta stage right now, but we tried to make it as complete as it is possible.
