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.
You always wanted Grenadiers to be really kick-ass? Well, play NE. In the future releases Grenadiers won't throw Grenades anymore (only at buildings). They'll basically be elite musketeers. Additionally you can equip them with these ... awesome and .. devastating grenade rifles (after you researched these in the Arsenal of course). Now Grenadiers will be pure fun!
The amount of smoke will be reduced to ensure a good performance, but it won't look less brutal! ;)
