    Old previews

    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

    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!

    Default Re: NEWS AND ANNOUNCEMENTS



    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.

    WIP; Please add your thoughts, post additional content etc.:



    Hello,
    we've got some news for you! During the past few months, we were working on the next version of RotR 1.2 - the Northern Wars Update. It's not done yet but we hope that we get the release done in April / May next year.
    As the name suggests RotR 1.2 will be centred around the northern factions - Sweden, Russia and Denmark.

    But until then we've something to show you:

    Sweden
    Here is the Swedish army:



    compared to RotR 1.1.9b there are 5 new Swedish units:
    1. Drottningens lif regemente (the 5th unit in the upper line)
    2. Tyska regemente (the last unit in the lower line)
    3. Lifregementets grenadjärkår (the 8th unit in the lower line)
    4. Lifgrenadjärregementet (the 7th unit in the lower line)
    5. Lifregementets lätta bataljon (the 9th unit in the lower line)


    The latter three will be unlocked after researching a tech as they were only created after Gustav IV Adolf became king.

    And here some in-game screenshots of the new units:

    Drottningens lif regemente

    Tyska regemente

    Lifregementets grenadjärkår

    Lifgrenadjärregementet

    Lifregementets lätta bataljon


    Russia
    Thanks to the great work by oleg2242 we can now present you the Russian army:


    And some in-game screenshot:
    And some in-game screenshots of the Russian army
    Grenadiers
    Unicorn Howitzers
    Hussars
    Greek volunteers
    Cuirassiers
    Cossacks


    New small nations will be represented in a new way:

    Brunswick
    The first is Brunswick. Small nations will have their unique building chain which will only be available at the town where they are located. The unique buildings will have some special all-round effects and are making the units available.
    Have a look:



    If you want to have a closer look at some of the new building models follow those links:
    Collegium Carolinum
    Schloss Salzdahlum


    In addition new generic building models will be added:


    On the left side is the new Guards model, on the top the Gunpowder magazine model (tier 1 artillery model) and on the bottom the new Barracks model.


    Furthermore, the historical events have been partly equipped with new historical images:

    WIP January update:




    As announced in the last preview Denmark will be the next faction that will be reworked for RotR 1.2.
    Today I'll present you the first works on Denmark and how we work to create new units.

    The first part is obviously checking the sources and how the uniforms did develop.
    Those plates below were especially helpful:
    Plates:


    Then we discussed the pros and cons and decided for the m1789 uniform. For this uniform we already had many parts of the model, as for example the coatee which could be taken from the Legion of the United States
    Legion of the United States Private


    Still the new Top Hat had to be done.
    As our primary source showed only one side of the hat, we had to have a look at other pictures as a reference and for comparison.
    It was this picture (the sitting private in the front):
    Reference picture


    Soon the Top Hat began to look like a Top Hat:
    WIP pictures of the Top Hat


    Then the unit model itself had been created and the details added.
    Here is a WIP picture


    The final step was to adjust the vertex weights to ensure a smooth animation.
    Here is a picture from a test


    And here are a preview of the final models (the Grenadier hat was already part of a Swedish guard unit and had just been taken over):
    Denmark Line and Light Infantry and Grenadier


    You can take a closer look at the Danish Top Hat here.

    Second myfate joined our team as DB-Editor and Ship-Painter! Welcome him to the team. Surly the ships painting has to be ready for an inspection of the admiral! He already started to work on new colour schemes for ships as you can see here and don't forget to rep myfate :
    Painted Hulls


    In addition new historical characters have been added:
    US Admirals

    1. Thomas Truxtun
    2. Richard Dale
    3. Edward Preble

    Swedish Admirals

    1. Carl Olof Cronstedt
    2. Salomon Maurits von Rajalin

    2. Gustaf Mauritz Armfelt
    3. Gustav Wachtmeister
    4. Georg Carl von Döbeln
    5. Carl Johan Adlercreutz
    6. Johan August Sandels


    At last, some new event-pics were made. I used some of the great caricatures of Thomas Rowlandson to bring in some humour of the late 18th century. I hope you do like them.
    event-pics
    1. Britain Drill (for techs)
    2. New pic for before duel
    3. New pic for after duel
    4. Critique of the Revolution (for tech with the same name)

    6. Prussia army (tech pic)

    8. Government Ottoman
    9. New York Stock Exchange
    10. Petticoat duel
    11. Whitney's Cotton Gin
    12. Air Loom


    I hope you do like this new form of presenting you the progress we make on RotR 1.2. I thought it would be nice to give you a little insight into how we work.

    Today is the 10th anniversary of Empire: Total War. So we decided to release a little anniversary gift for Empire: Total War and our fans; the anniversary beta.





    While 1.2 - The Northern Wars Update is still under development you can see many things that will be in 1.2:
    Danish Army
    The first infantry units of the Danish army are done:

    1. Danish Line Infantry
    2. Danish Grenadiers
    3. Danish Light Infantry
    4. Danish Life Regiment
    5. Norwegian Line Infantry
    6. Norwegian Grenadiers
    7. Norwegian Life Regiment

    Russian Army

    Also apart from the new ship paintings done by myfate, some new special ships can be build:
    New ships
    Christian den Syvende, Denmark
    Amazon-Class, Great Britain
    Tonnant-Class, France
    Montañés-Class, Spain

    Furthermore Saxony, the US, Sweden and Denmark have their own culture now, meaning they have unique campaign map models (except the Danish, theirs are not yet done) and historical characters.
    Campaign map models

    1. Sweden
    2. Saxony

    Russian Empire: Army, Navy and Diplomacy


    With the next update of the Imperial Splendour: Rise of the Republic even more gameplay aspects will be enhanced. In this preview, we will talk about major victory achievement means – Army, Navy and Diplomacy when playing as the Russian Empire.

    Let’s start from diplomacy first. And from the probably most significant diplomat of the century – Empress Catherine II.


    Being a ruler of Russia for already over than 20 years she gained several powerful traits, which help to keep control and supervision over the endless lands. There is a lot of things to do more, but time is merciless and as soon as she dies, it is necessary to be prepared for major changes in all aspects of the Empire’s life.


    We introduced new characters’ ancillaries based on historical Imperial Russia's award system consisted of seven orders. Catherine received a unique one - with diplomacy bonus. Order of Saint George is commonly given for military victories and heroism only. The other orders are not limited, with traits depending on character type, they will decorate Imperial servants for the honest service. Or for being a favourite of someone.


    To adequately react to the challenges given by the constantly changing world, it is needed to keep abreast of the other countries development. This will fall on ambassadors. They will help to gather required information about neighbouring factions’ economics and military might via spying networks and ties inside foreign governments. And generally, about things are going on.


    Ten historical diplomats are ready to serve wherever they will be sent.


    But who will care too much about diplomacy when it is possible to crush numerous enemies of the Empire with the army led by the glorious field marshals?


    We developed the general's pool, which is a mix of the recruited historical military commanders with different values and importance.


    All of them will receive corresponding traits more or less based on their true biography. As the Peter I successfully introduced military governors’ system at the beginning of the century, it was the intention to give generals some of the civil traits as well or garrison policing bonus at least. So, some not being really able on the battlefield, could still be appointed for the civilian duties and faithfully serve.


    The army is great, but the aims are even greater. It will be mandatory to fight on several war theatres to achieve the victory condition.

    To be one of the world’s greatest naval power is a prestigious and expensive thing, so it is necessary to develop a strong economy first before building a large navy. But further Empire's expansion to the south and south-west requires total control of the Black Sea, and so the powerful Black Sea fleet with a well-trained crew.


    The naval roster is completely overhauled and benefits of Russian heavy frigates will be significant.


    Similar to diplomats and general, admirals also received their historical characters’ pool and awards.



    Interests of Empire are not limited to Europe, it is a time to establish a monopoly on the maritime fur trade and to develop and colonize New World territories. Foundation of the Russian-American Company following the example of British and French are inevitable.

    Next, we will be working on the introduction of military technologies as close as possible to simulate true development. The religious and scientific part will be overviewed as well.



    Dano-Norwegian Army

    Also with the next update of Imperial Splendour: Rise of the Republic the Dano-Norwegian army is ready to be led by you.
    Of course, you'll get help from your generals and admirals:



    Furthermore this is the roster:

    7. Dansk 6-pund monteret Artillerie
    8. Norsk 6-pund monteret Artillerie
    9. Det Østindisk Artillerie Regiment



    Finally, our team is continuously working on different things such as descriptions, icons, flags, experimenting with game mechanics, etc. just to make it finally possible to submerge in the true atmosphere of the 18th-century world:






    At last, we want to answer the question of what still needs to be done before the next release.
    It's tech-trees, tech-trees, tech-trees.
    We will keep you posted on any progress.
