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! 

We're very happy to present you the new NE installer (NE 2.1.6) today! I'd really call it one of the most beautiful installers that I've ever seen. Since you had to wait rather long since NE 2.1.5, we also tried to compensate this time for you with some nice updates and goodies. The installer is for Windows only so far, but the Mac-Installer will also be released soon as well, it's almost done, so don't worry! :)

NE Finland NE Reservations
NE Barbary Coast NE Nile Flood

Here a sneak preview of the NE 2.1.6 release notes:

  • Fixed and re-released NE maps 
  • A new map: NE Finland 
  • Updated loading screens for NE maps 
  • 3 new natives: Bavarians, Barbary Pirates & Finns! 
  • New settlements for Tuareg, Westphalians and Wurttembergers 
  • The so far unreleased AI patch 6.1.2 by kangcliff for better AI unit picking in late game and more 
  • Unit sound fixes, including all Consulate units 
  • Re-included (and slightly modified) editor mod by Reyk 
  • A couple of balance changes such as new stats for Schütze, Hand Cannoneer and Grenzer or raised Italian house build limit 
  • And of course the core feature of this release: our sexy installer!

Hey, NE 1.0 is meant for AoE3 only (without the expansions) and is a 'little' outdated. ;) The most recent version is NE 2.1.5, that you need to install manually. URL:

Population caps exist to maintain a fluent game performance for people with bad PCs. When you're smart about sending HC shipments, developing unit-sending techs and use natives it's easily possible to have around 300-400 units.

The AoE3 engine wasn't built for epic scale battles such as in ETW.

NE 2.1.5 is the last stable version. It needs to be installed manually though, but we're working on an auto-installer. You can get NE 2.1.5 here:
