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!

This mod is really awesome!
And I wish to make a suggestion.Can you make some new revolution cultures such as Romania,Greece and Chechnya to instead the old revolution cultures such as Brazil and Peru?

If there is a uninstaller for this mod please could someone put a link for it in the comments. Long story short I downloaded the mod before I installed AOE III (I recently got a good PC and was downloading games ect...) but when the mod was fully downloaded it tried to run or something and of cause it wouldn't have worked.

Now I have AOE III installed and am trying to reinstall it but their is a error message coming up saying "Napoleonic era has already been installed on this computer."

I have tried literally everything ranging from Uninstalling steam along with going into every file to erase the game and from getting new installers ect...

So please if someone has time or if a dev is reading this I seriously would like a uninstaller made or some form of a way to erase this problem from happening again.

Kind Regards, Kapteeni Niko of the Utti Jaegers.

Probably not as we will release a tool called 'Congress of Vienna' before NE 2.2. It will allow you choosing from all the game's and mod's files. Along with the release of this tool we will provide a couple of changes to the game, too. It basically prepares NE 2.2. :)

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!
