"Before Tiber Septim, Cyrodiil's roads varied greatly in quality, and were often impassable in bad weather and winter season." - Arcane University scholar
Over 300 years after the reign of Tiber Septim, it seems the roads of Cyrodiil have not received any major improvements. As the center of Tamriel Empire, the shape of roads as presented in Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion barely represent the condition of a cosmopolitan province. Sections of major roads appear more like cross-country track not to mention the lack of any supporting infrastructures. Moreover, without roads or other infrastructure connecting Cyrodiil with the other provinces, it seems rather odd that the Empire could hold on and kept the provinces from seceding for a very long time.
Improved Imperial Infrastructure aims to transform Cyrodiil from backwater countryside into the cradle of civilization. This modification was inspired by the unfinished work of The Wayfarer. Its planned features include:
- New and extended roads to the border
- New border forts and settlements
- Enhanced major roads (e.g: less roller-coaster ride)
- Custom meshes for many new Cyrodiilic infrastructure
- Voiced NPCs
