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!

How, in the name of God, did Magyar hussars i Austrian empire ended up speaking albanian? Do the facts play some role in making this game or is just "fire as will"?

And the Hungarian units speak Russian and the regular Austrian units speak German.

Its almost like they had to make concessions because they couldn't get voice actors so they had to reuse voice-lines from the base game...funny that.

Does NE already have a new website?

Looks like they have one, napoleonic-era.eu but it has nothing on it yet. Probably why they haven't announced the new site yet.

im surprised that people still mod this game, expected it to end like 7 years ago.. anyways, would be nice if you were to post a list of what to back up, as i have a modded game which i would like to back up incase i would not like the new upgrades..

Yea, I considered releasing NE as file archives, too. However, I can neither provide an uninstaller nor ensure perfect functionality for manual un/installations.

You can make self extractors using WinRAR, it can help you make installer/uninstaller. Self Extractors can also be updated easily by using open with WinRAR. Just a suggestion. :)
By the way, please accept my friend request.

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!
