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!

Heartious greetings back to you, impatient guest! No, we don't know any release date either as we've still our heads stuck in work. But I think you might just kill the ongoing delay with some games as you probably did already ;o)

Yes. Since NE 2.2 got a lil bigger than we expected, we'll probably try to release a minimally improved version of NE 2.1.5 asap. The core feature would be the auto-installer, so that finally *everyone* can install and play NE. :)

Hi, I installed the mod and got it to work when it launched the game, but I can't seem to use any of the factions from the War Chiefs expansion in skirmish mode. Is this a bug or did I install part of the mod wrong?

The amount of AI players is limited to 14 in total (when you have TWC+TAD), that number can not be changed by modding. We're developing a tool that will offer a smooth workaround though. ;)
