    Preview RotR 1.1




    As a new version for Rise of the Republic is on the horizon, let me summarize what we've done in the past years and what will be new in the next release.

    4 new Factions are added and completely reworked. So apart from France and Great Britain there are the USA, the Kingdom of Prussia and the Electorates of Saxony and Hannover. Furthermore you can already recruit some new Swedish and Russian units in the Battle mode.

    Units
    At first there are of course the units.
    France and Great Britain will still have there old roster, with a few additions as the Rifle Corps or Scots Greys (or historically correct: the Royal North British Dragoons) for Great Britain or the Chasseurs à Cheval or Légion Noire for the French Republic.
    Rifle Corps
    Scots Greys
    Légion Noire


    The 4 new Factions have all their unique roster.
    So the US will have a relatively strong militia while not having a lot of regulars.
    US Units

    Prussia will have a large amount of units from every type but there cavalry will be inferior.
    Prussian Units
    Fusiliers
    Guard
    Dragoons
    Cuirassiers

    On the other hand Hannover will have a number of great cavalry units and a few elite light units and average infantry. Furthermore the relatively good training level of the Hanoverian army will be reflected.
    Hanoverian Units
    Guard Grenadiers
    Hanoverian East India Regiments
    Yes Hannover sent 2 regiments to India in order to help the EIC during the 1780s
    Hanoverian Guard
    Hanoverian General and Staff officer
    14th Light Infantry

    Saxony was after the devastating Seven Years War in no state to uphold a good working army. So Saxony has only average infantry and cavalry units. Light units will only appear late in the game.

    Tech trees
    As you may have noticed in the previous version, we started on creating new tech-trees. This work was continued for the next version. But only to the Army and Philosophy tech-trees. It reflects the Factions focus and specialties.
    As example:
    US Philosophy tech-tree

    1.2 Social Contract
    2.1 Empiricism
    3.2 Separation of Powers
    4.1 Encyclopedie
    5.2 Common Government
    6.1 Learned Society
    6.2 Declaration of Independence
    6.3 Virginia Declaration of Rights
    7.2 Articles of Confederation
    8.1 Scientific Method
    8.2 Federalism
    8.4 National Bank
    9.2 Constitution
    9.3 Judiciary Act
    9.4 Coinage Act
    10.2 Alien and Sedition Acts

    US Army tech-tree




    Buildings
    We create new building chains in order to let you have to choose. You can no longer simply build up to 5 different chains in the cities and choose between a few possibilities for the towns. Now there are much more possibilities with their strengths and weaknesses.
    Further many new building models were created and Hannover and London have their unique city model.
    City models
    Here is Hannover:

    And here London:


    Historical Characters
    Many many have been added and many will be added in the future. Furthermore you can now recruit historical generals, admirals, gentleman and envoys (yes the former rakes are envoys now because they always where diplomats and spy's in one). They will have the correct portraits.

    Preview RotR 1.1 Patch 1
    Hello,

    At first I want to apologise from the annoying campaign crash. The good news is, I found the bug and fixed it so the campaign will be stable again. There were just 2 entries in the AI tables in the startpos.esf wrong and this caused the AI searching in a Region for an army where the army was not. This caused the R 6025 runtime error.

    Furthermore I corrected all incorrect textures which were reported in the hope that all have been found. I addition GB and France can now recruit trade ships and the US can now expand their ports and plantages.

    In addition the end-date for the 6 done factions have been fixed to 1803.

    Special thanks to MAIAN and Switz for many hours of testing and helping me find the bug!

    In addition I did a bit more than just fixing bugs, I though that I give you a bit more. The results are 2 new elite units and many new historical characters.

    New Units
    US Marines


    And onboard a frigate:
    42nd Regiment (Britain) the Black Watch

    Several new historical characters are added to the mod

    Note that you can recruit characters only at their 20th birthday! So for example Wellesley and Napoléon are only recruitable in the year 1789 and not before. If you try to recruit them before that date the portraits will not be correct. In general I tried to create a sequence in which you can recruit all characters with their correct portrait but this can not be guaranteed!

    For the future Patch 2, here is a preview of things that will be added for Hannover:

    At first there will a new UI. We are switching from Baroque to Neoclassical style so it's naturally that everything is toned down a bit.

    Hanoverian UI Preview


    Furthermore Hannover will get new Naval Officers. I added some lines about the process of creating them.

    Hanoverian Naval Officers

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


    In-game screenshots
    Admiral and Lieutenant:

    Capitaine:


    But you will now say, Hanoverian Naval Officers? Did they ever have 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):

    Elbzollfregatte and Capitaine

    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:

    Hanoverian Officers

    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):

    von Freytag

    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.

    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).

    Take a look at our new Facebook and Twitter page.

    Here is the preview of our newest update, 1.1.9, Patch 2. This is an open Beta and not heavily tested but should fix the annoying campaign bug from 1.1.

    We now have a new tag, created by oleg2242.


    Another new thing are the Hanoverian Navy Officers you can see above.

    The flag set has been replaced by wangrin's and Herr Doktor's work (and a bit of mine).

    Furthermore there are many new historical characters in the game for you to find and defeat

    In addition Hannover got a new UI in the Neoclassical style.

    I can present you the 3rd patch for Imperial Splendour - Rise of the Republic 1.1 (the CA stole our name for their newest Rome II DLC). The patch contains several bugfixes reported by you over the last few weeks. For more details look at the Changelist.
    All changes should be savegame compatible (with a few only appearing when starting a new campaign).

    Changelist

    1. France:
      • French Republican general recruitable in custom battles
      • Grenadiers à Cheval and several other Republican units now recruitable in the campaign
      • Assigned the Republican units to the new tech tree

    2. Fixed the bug with the model of the Hanoverian artillery officer which caused a CTD during battle load.
    3. Fixed several German leader titles (Pfalz-Baiern, Hessen-Kassel and Wirtemberg)
    4. Sweden:
      • Fixed the CTD during battles when dragoons were dismounting
      • Sweden can now build new ships
      • Ministers have now correct titles

    5. Corrected the "number" of some leaders and successors
    6. Venice is now a "constitutional monarchy" because it fits better their government system with Doges elected for the rest of their lives
    7. Fixed wrong portraits for Ferdinando IV of Neapels
    8. Fixed wrong name for the Austrian successor
    9. Added better versions of the historical maps (still needs some more work)
    10. Russia is not at the start in peace with the Ottoman Empire
    11. Dagestan is now at peace with the Barbary States at the beginning of a new campaign.
