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 the 2018 Modding Awards are over now, we can proudly say the Rise of the Republic won the Awards in the ETW, NTW and Shogun 2 section!
Thanks to you all who voted for us!
In addition PikeStance and I were awarded as 3rd and 4th place favourite modders of this section! Again we would like to thank you for voting for us.

Also we have something new, a new preview video made by Fahnat

Also when doing bug-fixing we noticed that the soundtrack could lead to sounds not playing. Therefore the complete soundtrack was reworked. We now cut several longer recordings into smaller pieces to reduce the size of the tracks and also the amount disk space used so that all sounds are played properly (and also removing unnecessary silence at the beginning and end of some pieces). The soundtrack is still a Classical music soundtrack and uses calmer music for the campaign (mostly Piano music), more vivid (a march of Beethoven, used in the video too!) and full orchestra music for the land battles and finally mostly string quartets/quintets for naval battles. Overall the soundtrack was expanded with much more pieces as before.
By the way, the messed-up campaign agent voices were fixed too (a very weird bug, I can tell you, had to rewrite a DB with exactly the same content).

Here is the complete list with every piece we used and in which situation it can play. Click on the links to listen to the pieces:

So finally the last question, when is the next release coming?


Yes, we know, we promised it for may but nothing happened. Sadly RL came in between. There are still some things need to be done (like the Swedish tech-trees). We won't release a new version before that because the next release will be a full release and should be complete, not as the anniversary beta where you could see missing things. So we hope you still have some patience with us, version 1.2 is definitely coming!

Thanks for your patience and enjoy the music.

Again Hello... How are you, Sir?
Planned for future, what most features would you like to see in ETW2?
I'd appreciate it if you answered without taking too your much time.
Because, I know you know the shortcomings of ETW better than anyone!
Thank you very much, Sir! :)

Ok, dude! :)
No problem...
The system features of my computer too are not enough to play 3K, for now...
Maybe next year...
I hate it on limited campaign maps all the time already...
That's why, I maybe never buy this game...
I'm undecided...
