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!

I hate to bother but I have no new factions and old ones are gone? I did what the instructions said don't know what is wrong.

Some units are left to design, maps to check, bugs to fix and screenshots to do. ;)

when i played the multiplayer game with my friends, it started normally but then suddenly quit the game and said that it cannot synchronize. Is it a bug? Or it is the problem of my computer?

I hope that the next version actually comes to fruition. I love playing the beta and enjoy new natives a lot. I know these things tend to lose momentum as people's lives move on and new games come out, but I still love NE.

Hey, nice nice. You know, I love to be reminded all the time that people are waiting and such. ^^ NE 2.2 looks better every time we work on it. Maps and natives are the last big deal right now, then we already are on the finish line. ;)

I Have Two Questions?.

1 What's the Status of the Persians and Incas?. Are they Going to be in NE3?.

2 Exactly Which Version are the Danes Going To Be In?. NE 2.2 or NE3?.

Hey, sorry I couldn't reply earlier:

1. Inca won't be part of NE3, but we'll keep the Bonus HC for NE2. Persians have better chances, but I'm not going to reveal for what, hehe.

2. They're planned for NE3. But who knows..
