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.

As announced in the last preview Denmark will be the next faction that will be reworked for RotR 1.2.
Today I'll present you the first works on Denmark and how we work to create new units.

The first part is obviously checking the sources and how the uniforms did develop.
Those plates below were especially helpful:

Plate 1Plate 2

Then we discussed the pros and cons and decided for the m1789 uniform. For this uniform we already had many parts of the model, as for example the coatee which could be taken from the Legion of the United States:

US Legion


Still the new Top Hat had to be done.
As our primary source showed only one side of the hat, we had to have a look at other pictures as a reference and for comparison. It was this picture (the sitting private in the front):

Plate 3


Soon the Top Hat began to look like a Top Hat:

Top Hat 1Top Hat 2

Then the unit model itself had been created and the details added.

WIP Denmark Line

The final step was to adjust the vertex weights to ensure a smooth animation.

And here are a preview of the final models (the Grenadier hat was already part of a Swedish guard unit and had just been taken over):

Here you can take a closer look at the Danish Top Hat:

At last, some new event-pics were made. I used some of the great caricatures of Thomas Rowlandson to bring in some humour of the late 18th century. I hope you do like them:

Event Pics

1. Britain Drill (for techs)
2. New pic for before duel
3. New pic for after duel

I hope you do like this new form of presenting you the progress we make on RotR 1.2. I thought it would be nice to give you a little insight into how we work.

Yes, the launcher directs you to steam. Sorry. Still, you can start empire without the launcher.

In the final version of the mod yes, but not in the next updates. We'll finish the late campaign first.

Hi, I love the mod. Question, are you going to add fire by ranks in the british Infatry?. And the hands of some infantry units are missing also. THANKS :)

Higher unit detail settings should avoid the missing hands and fire by rank will be disabled for all units. To allow denser formation all units will fire at will.

Nice nice thanks. In the british naval units are you going to add steamships? Its just sad seeing portugal with steamships and the british don't.

No steamships will completely be removed because they are ahistorical. Thanks for reporting that Portugal can recruit them!

Your Welcome, Its not only portugal that can produce steamships, Denmark as well, infact in my game denmark is the first one to build the steamship. Portugal also has fire by rank units
