*Hi all, in the spirit of fostering new modding creativity, if you want to modify this mod further and share them on Moddb, I'd be more than happy !! This mod contains all my original resources so it's easy for anyone to pick up where I left off.


PREPARE FOR WAR


Whether you play as the delusional Taiping Heavenly King or against, the outcome of war can never be guaranteed. The course of history relies on your ability to lead your troops through the world's deadliest civil war.


  • Over 200 customised & high-quality new portraits
  • Consistency of high-quality in-game UI, from loading screens, gameplay interface to unit cards
  • Over 100 new HQ event pics
  • New historical events added to Grand Campaign.
  • Great historical battles built into the Grand Campaign: from the Battle of Shanghai, Inlong River to the Reconquest of Xinjiang
  • Complete overhaul of in-game cinematics: from assassination videos, spy's infiltration videos to faction-specific defeat/victory videos and much more.
  • Better settlement models for Large and Huge Cities, including the grand Forbidden City.

HOW TO INSTALL SIGH OF EMPIRE (SOE) MOD

The year is 1855, the embattled Qing viceroy Zeng Guofan has mounted a heroic defence at the battle of Xiangtan, and blunted the Taiping invasion. Chastened - but not yet broken - the Taiping Heavenly King has settled his warlords across southern China. For the first time in nearly 200 years, the empire is in a fragile state of war.

Throughout this vast continent, the rulers of Great Britain, France, Russia and Japan sense a time of change approaching; a time of opportunity. There will be treaties. There will be war. There will be turns of fortune that become the stuff of legend, in a saga that charts the rise and fall of one of history's great empires.

Kings will rise. One will rule.

From the heart of the battlefield to the campaign map, you will guide your faction to glory and wage war, negotiate or invade. You hold the power to tip the balance in China. It is time to show your ability as the greatest military leader in the world. Will you relive or change history? Will you change the fate of China by achieving victory at all costs?

Main Features:

Total strategic war: War is not only won on land or sea. It's also achieved in the hearts and minds of men and women.

Authentic war simulation: Let the greatest commanders of late 19th century China fight your war with the tools of the time; howitzers, grenades and newly invented gattling guns.

Assume control of thirteen new factions: Choose from the great powers striving for victory, or the small nations trying to weather the storm. Turn the world into your battlefield: Experience the full 19th century timespan in a topographical map complete with seasons, weather and terrain. Snow, mud, storms can be both your strong ally and a ruthless enemy.

Excellent, many thanks Azuredes. I'm sure fans of this mod really appreciate you sharing the fix. You are welcome to continue modding Sigh of Empire, I've moved on to other projects and am now modding Empire Total War. But I'll watch any future SoE development with interest

there are no naval units in this mod. You get issued a navy at the start if your nation gets one, and that's it afaik.

Is this mod Mac-compatible? If not, is there any quick fix, e.g. wrappers, that might work?
