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 might be asking for too much, but are you going to add new animals (huntables and guardians)?

As much as I like the new maps (Finland and Nile River are my favourites BTW), it can be somewhat annoying to see Cougars and Pronghorns in African and West Asian maps. Some new european, african and asian fauna would be much appreciated (example: Chamois and Boars in Europe or Gazelles and Leopards/Lions in Africa/West Asia).

Well, an oryx model is already featured (for a future release),so I guess NE team has something on their mind, concerning critters and TGs: I.imgur.com

Hello, I noticed you are going to add new mercenaries such as the Wild Geese, who replace the Fusilier. I would like to suggest a new one: Serdiuks (Ukrainian/Cossack skirmisher merc that can also gather resources and treasures).

Hello, I have TAD 1.03 version and I have installed this mod 4 times, yet an error keeps popping, according to which RockallDLL.dll is missing. What must I do?

Hey, as said in the download instructions, you need to patch AoE3 + both expansions BEFORE you install NE. In your case you didn't patch The Warchiefs.

Hello NE team, can someone give me in detail the words that Poles and Swedes say? Apart from that, what will Snaphaners say when they are selected/attacking/moving?

Here are some Swedish words: Ageofempires.wikia.com
I don't have the other Swedish wordings at my hands right now, sorry. As for the Danish, there is a long list of typical expressions they will say (i.e. 'for hans majestæt!' or 'Deres vilje?'). If you have any special ideas for the Snaphaner's texts I'd be glad to hear them. :)

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!
