Napoleonic Era 2.1.7b for Mac OS X

Author File Description
Tilanus Commodor
File Details
Game Version: AoE3+TWC+TAD
Napoleonic Era is and has been one of the most popular mods for Age of Empires III and its expansions for over 8 years. It greatly expands and reworks the game with new units, buildings, maps, sounds, music, civilizations and a better AI.

The Napoleonic Wars were chosen as the mod's theme because these count to the most influential military events during the time period of Age of Empires III, which did not cover Europe, Africa and Western Asia as historical spheres of interest.

    Napoleonic Era 2.1.7b for Mac requires:
  • Age of Empires III Complete Collection

    Napoleonic Era 2.1.7b is available for Windows and Mac OS X can be installed with our beautiful automatic installers. Napoleonic Era also works with Steam. If you'd like to uninstall NE at a later point, please use the uninstaller.

    Special feature: Our unique file system allows seamless switching between Napoleonic Era and the original game and supports ESO2 for both, no uninstall required! Simply click either the NE or AoE3 desktop icons to choose your game.

    If you want to play against other NE players, you can join this NE Online Group on Facebook and ask for matches. Napoleonic Era works with GameRanger, Hamachi and also ESO2. Homecities created with either Napoleonic Era or The Asian Dynasties should never be used in the other game though, otherwise progress might get lost. We recommend you to give your Homecities special names to separate them (i.e. NE Berlin or TAD London).

    You can get in contact with us and receive the latest mod news on our official website and our channels on Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and ModDB.

    Very good, easy to deploy on your MAC. Just a problem, the file downloaded isn't a zip file. You need to rename to .rar file to decompress a .dmg file.
