    version 2.1.4


    Complete Overview can be found here


    IS 2.1.4 Link





    Summary Imperial Splendour 2.1.3 adds many features to Imperial Splendour 2.0. and even to 2.1b We are continuing to rework all the factions. A complete overhaul has been given to Spain, United Provinces, Prussia, Morocco, Italy and the Native Americans. Large revamps have met Prussia, the United Provinces, and Russia. Along with this, we are this time first including Reskins in the mod. As starters, we have Spain, the United Provinces, Morocco, Russia and Denmark reskinned

    Artillery Revamp

    Imperial Splendour 2.1 offers the first stage of an on-going Artillery Revamp, that will when finished encompass every nation in the game.

    The factions completed for 2.1: The United Provinces, Denmark, Sweden, and Norway. The next faction group planned is Prussia and all minors associated with it.

    What the Artillery Revamp entails is a lot of behind-the-scenes work that casual players may not even notice. What may be immediately noticeable, however, is that three artillery technologies (Standardization of Calibers, Professionalization of Artillery, and Liechtenstein Reforms) are no longer linked to buildings. This was necessary in order to remove them from/introduce new technologies for the factions that have received the revamp.

    Another large aspect (besides the behind-the-scenes work that nobody except me really cares about) is that 2.1 and the Artillery Revamp is the first time that unit obsolescence through scripting has been a part of the mod. What this means is that as the player/faction researches a technology (in this case, Artillery techs) new units become available and old units become unavailable. Previously, this was accomplished only through buildings. Now, however, it is entirely possible to keep 17th-Century Cannons all the way through the game if you so desire.

    Additionally, there has been a change to explosion graphics. Howitzers no longer cause that funny-looking fountain effect but rather are simple large explosions.
    Aside from this, we have many minor changes (from 2.1b level)
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    Units

    • colonial and south American Militia and Russian life guard yegers model bug fixed
    • Russians troops now have Russian names
    • pirates limited to sloops, brigs, race-built galleons
    • the AI now properly recruits generals. They are available at all government buildings now.

    • fixed Swedish unit crash
    • prize money for ship cut in half

    Other

    • technology trading disabled to allow unique technologies

    • Fixed ship pricing for easy campaign Difficulty

    • Fixed ship pricing issue.
    • Fixed Native American ranges. They should be a little better now.
    • Fixed Native American generals costing too much upkeep.

    2.1.4 Changelog
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read:

    Future Plans Planned are first revamps of the left factions. We have not yet reworked the minor German states, the caucasus states and Mysore. All of the artillery will be reworked as well, and we're looking to personalize navies for the various factions. High on the list are also a further rework of battle-mechanics and a revamp of the non-military game-play aspects.

    Download and Installation

    Gamefront combined (Mod + Patch) link

    IS 2.1.4



    Installation instructions
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    DETAILED INSTALLATIONS INSTRUCTIONS

    • Before starting, make sure you got a vanilla game and no traces of unsupported mods.
    • Download the last version of the mod and any other patch additional featured on the post:
      • IS 2.1
      • Patch 2.1.4



    • Before verifying the integrity of game cache you need to:
      • Don't delete anything without knowing if the file is an ETW (vanilla) file or a mod.
      • Delete all mods inside C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\empire total war\data.
      • Now you are ready to verify integrity of game cache. Remember to take backup of your mods like Blood and Smoke ect. You can put them back in the data folder when you know you got Imperial Splendour working correctly.



    • How to verify integrity of game cache:

    Run Steam and right click on "Empire Total War" and select "Properties". Select the tab "Local Files" and click the "Verify integrity of game cache" option.

    Installing the mod

    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 

    1. Download the lastest version (& / or hot-fixes) of Imperial Splendour.


    2. Use 7zip and open
    the compressed file or exe. You should see a folder called data and a file called user.empire-script.txt. Select the folder data and click "Extract" and point it to C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\empire total war\ (You should not be asked to overwrite anything)

    3. Locate
    C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\empire total war\data folder. Inside there you should now have 3 additional files to your vanilla files. They are called "Imperial Splendour DB.pack", "Imperial Splendour Media.pack" and "patch_is_text.pack".

    4.
    Locate C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\empire total war\data\campaigns\ folder. Inside there you should now have a folder called "imperial_splendour". In addition to the vanilla folders listed in the spoiler. Inside the "imperial_splendour" folder there you should have 25 files including "scripting.lua" and "startpos.esf".
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    Vanilla folders inside \data\campaigns folder:

    episodic_1
    episodic_3
    episodic_5
    main
    main_2
    natives - if you got Warpath Expansion

    5. Select the file user.empire-script.txt and click "Extract" and point it to C:\Documents and Settings\(Your User Name Here)\Application Data\The Creative Assembly\Empire\scripts (The folder called Application Data may be hidden so go here to make it visible and if you haven't deleted user.empire-script.txt located in the script folder you may need to overwrite it.)

    Now you are ready to play or you can add some optional files...


    Optional: Blood and Smoke Mo

    1. If you want to use the Blood and Smoke Mod for Imperial Splendour download that from here.

    2. Open the zip you downloaded called "
    BSM for IS 2.x.rar". Unzip the content which is 5 file called "mod_BSM_4_Full - IS2.pack", "mod_BSM_4_Light - IS2.pack", "mod_BSM_4_Medium - IS2.pack", "mod_NoTrails.pack" and "read-me BSM for Imperial Splendour 2.04.txt" to your desktop or a place of your choosing.

    3. Open
    "read-me BSM for Imperial Splendour 2.04.txt" and decide what version you would like to run. Then locate and copy/cut the file you choose into C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\empire total war\data

    4. If you want to have a game where you do not see the trails of the bullets also copy/cut
    "mod_NoTrails.pack" into C:\Program Files\Steam\SteamApps\common\empire total war\data

    5. Once you have done that you need to go into
    C:\Documents and Settings\(Your User Name Here)\Application Data\The Creative Assembly\Empire\scripts and open "user.empire-script.txt" with notepad and add this lines mod "mod_BSM_4_Light - IS2.pack"; and mod "mod_NoTrails.pack"; so it looks like this:
    Spoiler Alert, click show to read: 
    user.empire-script.txt

    mod "mod_NoTrails.pack";
    //Only if you actually use "NoTrails"
    mod "mod_BSM_4_Light - IS2.pack"; //If you are using Full or Medium replace with the correct filename
    mod "Imperial Splendour DB.pack";
    mod "Imperial Splendour Media.pack";


    now close that file and save it. You are ready to play.





    • The easiest way of knowing if the mod have been loaded is looking at the main menu screen: it will appear a title, "Imperial II Splendour", on the screen with the version just below to the right.

    No and yes. It is not compatible with Darthmod, but there is an easy way to increase unit size to Darthmod levels, found here:http://www.twcenter.net/forums/showthread.php?t=232113

    Have fun!

    Just wondering do the Arty fixes use projectile tables ?

    If so maybe a Smoke and Blood 4 warning might be necessary as any1 using it would be overwriting the 2.1.1. patch.

    yes, IS 2.1 and 2.1.1 runs on every operation system and every 1.5 patched Version of ETW. No matter of warpath/DLC/SF owner or not.

    and there never was a desktop Icon I'm afraid.

    Just to clarify completely: If I have ETW 1.5 DLC and no warpath I can install IS 2.1/2.1.2 and it will work?

    Just a quicky - whats with the bow ranges ?
    My line infantry got mullered by some indians with 250 range ICBMs - its in the is_projectiles_east (is_foot_bow_poor etc) - thats one hell of a pull of that string
    Also a lot of the musket ranges are a bit squwie.

    I don't think I understand what you are saying ..

    I'm guessing you should click "save" and then specify the location (desktop!) where you want the .RAR file saved.

    You download IS (the .RAR file) and extract the contents of the .RAR file to the right places (see installation guide).

    If I'm completely wrong with my assumption about your problem, feel free to add a screenshot to enlighten me

    Greetings, Cinnead
