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!

That's a general knowledge question and therefore falls outside the realm of my expertise, but perhaps this guide could assist you. Aoe3.heavengames.com

Due to the nature of our work, we can't be certain about when the next version of Napoleonic Era comes out. Rest assured, we are working feverishly to get it finished.

Please install the required patches for TWC and TAD. This will fix your issue.

The future :P
In all seriousness, due to the nature of the NE Team's work, it can be nigh impossible to determine when the next update is ready to roll out. Sorry :(

I have played an earlier version of NE and loved it!

Currently, I'm running a new pc, new install, etc. (Win 8.1 Pro), the original AoE 3 (+ TWC + TAD) run fine, but NE crashes on startup (the music starts playing, and then the screen goes black and closes itself).

Is there anything that can be done?

Thanks in advance!

Hey there!

Thanks so much for playing Napoleonic Era! As for your problem, you might want to try referring to our tech support forum Ne.elpea.net . I'd also suggest you do the tried and true reinstallation of NE.

I've tried to re-install it several times now. The game works fine. it just doesn't allow me to access online games. Some kind of CRC-Abwitchdfjneuro (Something in German) error.

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!
