Age of Empires III: Napoleonic Era v1.0.0

Author File Description
Kastor Overview:
Napoleonic Era is a revolutionary mod for Ensemble Studios’ latest RTS game, Age of Empires III. It is currently the most thorough and anticipated mod of Age of Empires III ever made.

The mod was originally created by game modder and Age of Empires gamer Alexander Flegler (Kastor), inspired by the idea of adding a Swiss civilization suggested by his friend, Jahn Hummel (Twister3). Napoleonic Era soon grew from this and was discussed frequently on the forums of Age of Empires III Heaven. After release v0.2, a very interested member of these forums, Fernando Barbosa (Walker), discussed many ideas to improve and balance the game, and was soon made balance lead. A while after the release of v0.8, Matthew Sher worked with modder Xentelian to complete the Unit Upgrades Modpack. Seeing Matthew’s texture work, Kastor successfully requested him to become Napoleonic Era’s graphics lead. David Rosehnal, having planned to make a campaign about the Napoleonic Era, has made and maintained this website, and interested forumers, like Peter Piepenburg (Tilanus Commodor) have made some valuable contributions to the game as well.

The Napoleonic Wars were chosen for the game’s general theme due to the fact that these were the most influential military events during the time period Age of Empires III, next to its current theme, the colonization of the Americas.

Napoleonic Era features a great deal of new gameplay elements, returning a few well-missed elements from Age of Empires II, like removing the limit of builders working on one building, improving the arsenal, and new abilities for Explorers. It includes five completely new civilizations, the Italians, Prussians, Austrians, Americans, and Swiss. It also redesigns the existing French and German civilizations. These civilizations are very different from each other, most receive a new AI personality, new technologies, new cards, and the new ones receive their own Homecity. All of the new civilizations and most of the existing ones get many new unique units, in addition to several new standard units. All these new units have had amazing care put into them to make them as distinctive, realistic, and interesting as possible. The game also incorporates usage of Matthew Sher’s Unit Upgrades Modpack, so that the units from the original game upgrade for every age. To fit the new theme of the wars occurring in Europe, Napoleonic Era includes many new random maps, from Europe, and some additional ones from the Americas, and even other places around the world, many of which have completely new native allies, like the Wurttembergers or the Japanese.

shavedwookiee I have a question. I installed the program, but when i try to launch it, an error message comes up saying "This application has failed to start because rockalldll.dll was not found. Re-installing the application may fix this problem." I have re-installed this about three or four times. Any solutions?
KaSt0r You have to install Napoleonic Era into your Setup directory of Age of Empires III (where the age3.exe located is).
shavedwookiee do you know which file that would be? Would it be this one?
C:\Documents and Settings\Owner\My Documents\My Games\Age of Empires 3
I really think this mod sounds impressive, and I really want to try it, but i can't seem to find the right folder. Maybe if you could give me a specific folder to install it into, I could use it. Thanks
KaSt0r C:\Program Files\Microsoft Games\Age of Empires III

BTW: If you want to install the mod, then it already stands there ;-).
trazk i've installed the mod on aoe3 v1.05. there's the new startingscreen, but my problem is, that i can't choose the new civ's and don't know, how to install them.
thanks for ur help - i hope somebody can tell me, how to handle this
Trymutos ok first off this is a really great mod it awesome i lived the prussians but only one thing went wrong... for some reason the marksman didnt have guns also the conquistadors could only be used in scneraio maker thing and istead of guns they had crossbows which shot like guns other than those problems i thought it was great
ps the architects also shot out of the air which meant they didnt have a guns either
Genkai0 How do i download it?! How long does it take? i went to page 6 and clicked English, but only a white page clicked up and a file thing opened. But it didnt say size or time or anything just the paper going to the folder and saying like www.balh.blah going to blah blh
Little Dragon Hello,

Firstly, I'd like to appreciate your mod.
But, sincerely saying, for the figure of imperial musketeers, i think the original ones maybe look nicer. Further, during the Napolenic Era, the shooting units didn't knee down when they was shooting.

For your reference, see the under website,related to which Napoleonic Era's units are well-described in American Conquest-Napoleonic Mod.

Hoping it may help you in the next versions.

Your mod sounds very interesting, but before I download it I would like to know what I should do once a new patch is released.

Do I need to uninstall the MOD first before I update the patch?
Does the MOD come with “Uninstall” feature?
Will the MOD work with the next patch? Or do I need to wait for a release of “Updated” MOD?
Any information in that regard would be appreciated.
