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 I'm having trouble installing, I had inadvertently deleted some files and then deleted all the NE, there's nothing left and he says that the NE is installed on my computer but that is not already removed any leftovers

I occured a problem. I installed the Complete Collection, cracked then installed NE 2.1.7b and it started all fine but I can't play any Campaigns and in Skirmish I can see the new nations only (Chinese, Japanese, Indians, Swiss, French,Prussians, Italians, Austrians, United States, Swedish and Poles) and I cannot see the basic nations. What can be the problem?

There's a bit of a game breaking bug once playing at poland, you can't advance through age because there are no monarchs or politicians to choose from once advancing in age.

You can, you have to build farms each age in order to age up. Will be removed next version. :)

Hello! I have a request. I personally don't really enjoy the whole shippings and homecities stuff, it actually prevents me from playing AoE3 more often. I just don't want to level all these homecities up and so on, I just want to start the game any time, pick a nation and that is it. So could you please include a option into your launcher that either removes the homecities/shippings (something nice for causual gamers) or gives you hard coded, fully developed homecities (as you said you would maybe do for multi player games).

Hey Saruman, we are already working on such thing. It won't be an option though, but default.

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!
