Napoleonic Era is a renowned, fan-made modification for Age of Empires 3 and its expansions The Warchiefs and The Asian Dynasties. The mod intends to accurately illustrate the time from 1555-1815 by greatly expanding and reworking the game with new units, buildings, maps, sounds, music and civilizations. The mod has been founded in January 2006 by Alexander Fleger and is being continued by Peter Piepenburg since February 2010. It is still one of the most anticipated mods for Age of Empires III in the whole world.

Hey everybody,

it's just been a week since the last release of NE 2.1.7, which provided Mac users for the first time with an installer and did rebalance and update a couple of civs too (i.e. the Germans). Due to a major visual bug (caused by bad file packing) we decided to quickly re-release a fixed version (and not a patch).

NE 2.1.7b will stabilize the recently released NE 2.1.7. Apart from fixing the major visual bug, this version also adds a new voice set for Polish and some new graphics for Americans, which you can see here:

New US buildings

New US consulate icons

NE 2.1.7b for Windows
NE 2.1.7b for Windows

NE 2.1.7b for Mac
NE 2.1.7b for Mac


Installation requirements:

NE 2.1.7b requires the latest AoE3 patches, but no prior NE installations.
You can install NE 2.1.7b over your NE if you did not install versions earlier than NE 2.1.6.
Otherwise please install NE over an umodded and patched AoE3.

You can read the NE 2.1.7b release notes here.

NE ONLINE GAMING
If you want to play against other NE players, you can join this NE Online Group on Facebook and ask for matches. NE has been played so far via GameRanger, Hamachi and ESO.

And now we will crawl back into our Skype chatrooms, working documents and surround us with code, sketches and graphics and prepare the next big thing. ;)

Happy Napoleonic gaming!

I installed NE a few years ago and then deleted it because it took up a lot of space on my PC. I installed it again and it said I had the mod installed. Please help. NOTE: I saw your Facebook post from January 27, and if you still are looking for people to write articles for you I would be pleased to work for you.

Hi, Can I use this mod along with the improvement mod? and if not does this NE mod have a population limit of more than 200 and fort walls?

Thanks

Yes you can use 4 mods together with original game:-
1. Improvement Mod (Version 6)
2. Napoleonic Era (2.1.7b)
3. Hundred Days
4. Age of Dynasties

Just to make that clear. You can install all these mods at the same time and use them separately, but they are not compatible themselves.

I must say this is the best mod for Age of Empires III! Words are not enough to describe the amazing work TilanusCommodor and his team put into this. Good show old chaps!

Foolish Mod. It has many promises but does nothing!!! I kept following this mod for 6 months because it has Persians and now you say in your update that they will not be made. Also many other European countries are incomplete and not playable. Some do not even age up(like Poles and few others). I just do not like it.
