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 have just downloaded it and when I went to play I found that I still have exactly the same maps (no new ones). I then went onto the scenario editor and I found that all the new maps are there but I still can't seem to work out why I can't play with the new maps on skirmish as they are obviously somewhere on my computer.

Any help would be really great thanks

Ok, i have many difficulties, 1)I can't play the gameplay without it freezes
2)I can't play with other versions (like Asian Dynasties) even when i uninstall Napoleonic Era
3)I tought it was a complete remake mod but the french have 2 or 3 changements, they have every the cards the same except coureurs are replaced by sansculottes, they have new units that are really limited, i don't know who had that stupid idea

4) WHY the hell the ai only use cannons, and mostly cannons from factories and from consulate (the asian ones) why did you make them so artillery lovers?

The aoe3 ai is kind of wierd. Naturally ai's love artillery. There is a infinite fort card that the french have as well if you haven't noticed. The reason why elite units are not send able is because they are op and on top of that you pay shipments anyways to train grognards and chassuers.

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.
