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!

hello TilanusCommodor, i would like to say (sorry for my horrible english) that these mod is realy great, congratulations for all the team. Also i need to say, due i'm an prussian player, that in these faction some units have no voices, like the fusilier, and the napoleonic (1805) kind uniform for the shutzen is aparently retarded, and apear only in imperial age, just some detaills. But i really want to say... those ai's are asome!!!!, specialy the (those who live in the alps i dont know they correct name in english.. suizos in spanish) and the austrians... they really suprised me.... and i was only using hard dificult... well thats all.... thakns for such a great work !!!!

That is normal (and was already like that in all prior versions) due to the game limit of 14 AIs. We will release a tool in the future though that allows you to choose the AIs before the game. :)

No, because that is usually the last thing a mod would do (because it requires everything else to be finished). But if you got any ideas for a short campaign, let me know. ;)

Hello TilanusCommodor, I have a question about modding .bar files. I'm trying to edit the musket sounds but I can't seem to open the file or create a valid .bar file myself, though I know it can be done. If you can, please PM me.
Thank you,
~ microsoftman404

You can just place new musket sounds to the Sound folder and use the file names that are listed in soundsetsy.xml - May you show me the musket sounds you want to use? :)

Moddb.com I opened the file with the pack file manager for Total war games and picked out the best sounds :) If you want the ones I picked out I can upload them in a .zip?

That would be nice, I'd definitely have a listen and see if they could fit for NE! :)
