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.

I created Hanoverian Naval Officers, have a look:

Hannover Naval Officers 1

From left to right:
1. Capitaine
2. Admiral
3. Lieutenant


In-game screenshots:

Admiral and Lieutenant:

20180521202226 1

Capitaine:

20180521202342 1


But you will now say, Hanoverian Naval Officers? Did they ever had a Navy?

Well, not exactly. The Hanoverian Government had some ships, used for customs service (the so-called 'Elbzollfregatte'). Here is one of the ships from the mid 18th century with a captain (Capitaine):

Elbzollfregatte1770uhlenbr


From this picture I took the base uniform colours: blue and white with gold facings. For the other uniform details I used the late 18th century infantry officers and generals uniform:

Gen Inf Off


On the left is a pic of a Hanoverian General and on the right one of an Infantry Officer. As you can see all Hanoverian officers wore two epaulets. So every naval officer has two of them. What is not displayed is that the general had lace around the lapels and cuffs. (take a look at this picture from the Hanoverian cavalry general von Freytag):

001


So I gave the Admiral the uniform details from the Hanoverian generals as the rank would have been the same. The only exception second row of lace on the cuffs comes from the British Royal Naval uniform pattern, take a look at this link: Collections.rmg.co.uk

For the Lieutenant I used the pattern of the Hanoverian officers whereas for the Capitaine I added lace around the buttonholes (as in the mid 18th century uniform above) and a row of lace on the cuffs (the idea came from the Royal Navy uniform again).


Obviously other nations will get their naval officers too;)

Okay, so I've been playing a Prussian Campaign for a little bit now and interesting stuff has happened.

1. It appears that some of the UI in the Campaign (menus and stuff) have the style of NTW and have switched back to the normal building icons. This is weird because it's very different to what I saw when I played as Great Britain. Perhaps there's an explanation for this?
2. In all of my region capitals, there are no construction options. I can't build or change anything in the region capitals, yet I can in towns. Weird?
3. Even weirder, some of the building models on the campaign map show up as construction sites. It looks like I haven't built anything there. This has applied to: Ports, Universities, other buildings in Region capitals etc.
These are the problems I found, but the campaign is still fun. Any help is much appreciated. Thank you. :)

Hello! Why is the effective range of some cannon balls 0(zero)? Do not you see this bug? Only the Britannia cannons are so bugs. Please fix this nonsense! Thanks!

Okay, never mind, France as a whole (if not the whole mod) is broken. It just crashes.

Does this happen in custom battles too?
And there is a bug with the British army of Elliott which can cause a campaign crash.

I haven't played the campaign yet, however yes this is in custom battles.

It seems to have stopped though (I'm not sure). If this helps, when I look at the crash data after the crash, it's always Thread 13 that crashes.

I tested everything after your report and no chrash occured. Did this happen with other nations too?
Btw I ve no idea what a thread 13 crash is, can you point to forum or something else where it is explained?

Well, luckily, it's only Republic France that crashes. I've tested and that's the conclusion I've got to. I'll have a look for a forum that explains Thread 13 crash.

Note: I think it's just Line Infantry that breaks in R France.
