Heya! I'm a young game designer and UI designer from Berlin and mainly known for two Age of Empires 3 mods, The Ancient Age (TAA) and Napoleonic Era (NE). I've also been admin on the German age-community.net, organizing contests and all other the funny stuff. I particularly love historical RTS and action games, most prominently the Age of Empires and Total War series. Apart from that I'm an enthusiast of music, philosophy, arts, languages, food and lots of other interesting stuff that's crossing my way. My sarcasm might be deadly, but I'm an easy person, err .. mostly! ^^

You are kidding, right? If there's something that has poor textures, then it's the original game.

Hey, you might need to start the single AoE3 parts (AoE3, TWC, ..) first and enter their CD Key. It must've something to do with your original AoE3 as NE doesn't require a CD key at all.

The current Persians in NE 2.1.7b are an unfinished bonus civ, that have nothing in common with the Persian major civ we're currently working on.

We have that planned for our next mod version after NE2, we call it a "simplified/reduced HC". This plan may still contain a couple of "percentage cards" though.

What exactly do you want to change at your HCs? If it's just for the names and so on, I could tell you which file you need to edit (so you don't lose progress). Apart from that you can reset your cards in AoE3. Don't remember right now where the button is though.

As for checking if you got the newest version, simply try to install the newest. It will then either install or tell you that you got the newest version. ;)

Yes, it's from next version. The Ottomans are still playable, we had to pre-create a Ottoman Homecity in singleplayer mode because the game does not allow more civs right now.

NE 2.1.7b es la version actual. Tienes que hacer clic en el icono "Napoleonic Era 2" y Age of Empires III no. ;) Nuevos mapas de NE se pueden reproducir en modo escaramuza. Tienes que hacer clic en el icono "mapas personalizados" debajo de la imagen. :)

Just download and run the installer, which will automatically detect AoE3 in your Steam directory. NE doesn't overwrite your original files, so you've got nothing to worry about. :)

The game can only have 14 AI players. So you can play as Ottomans (check your HCs), but the AI can not play them. We'll offer a workaround for this in the next version. :)

The Inca and Persian civilization are currently only bonus civs and hence work-in-progress, so let's not bother with these for now. As for Polish farms and American ranch, they surely could look more appropriate, even though I think that in spite of the farms being originally used in the Aztec civ, the farm itself doesn't really look aztec and hence like something alien in the Polish civ.

Napoleonic Era uses a file structure that is different to that of TAD (whose files other mods replace). However, they might be only partially compatible, because Napoleonic Era shares also a few files with TAD. For example, I could imagine that the civs are incomplete.

I'm not sure which file structure the Improvement mod uses, I guess it overwrites original AoE3 files. If you don't have NE yet, but want to have both mods and AoE3, you need one further clean, unmodded directory of original AoE3 in which you can install NE. Of course, this only works, if you didn't install the ImproMod in your only AoE3 directory.

NE is historically a mess in my eyes. It's not suitable for detailed developments and accurate details like the ones you are suggesting. As much as I'd like to realize what you want as much do I need to admit that it won't work. Too less time, too less resources and an established mod concept that makes it almost impossible to establish a new wave of historical quality. ;)

Yes, the Drabant is another Swedish unique unit. I've been thinking about the reskinning when I made the screen. I don't know if that is a good idea, once I do it for one civ I should do it for all you know. Also I just continue the project, I haven't been involved in the planning of the Swedish civ, so I can't tell you right now if adding another type of pikeman makes actually sense.

Depends: Antesignanus (Hybrid Merc), Scout, Hastatus (age 2), Eques, Legionarius (Hastatus in age 4), Tribunus Militum (Commander, age 2).

Antesignani are skirmishers mercs with a strong melee. Scouts for scouting... Hastati and Legionarii are Roman core units, they have a group bonus and are supposed to be one of the best standard units in the game. The Commander has an HP and damage aura, lots of HP and good damage as well. He's 'the crown'.
