We finally merged the @SpiderMonkeyJS 52 patch! This is one of the milestones preventing us release on Linux again, because SpiderMonkey depends on Python2 until version 78. We still have a few roadblocks ahead, but that was probably the biggest part of that library's upgrade.

Did you know that Alpha 24 will feature new archery ranges, stables and siege workshops for every faction? Even mods like Terra Magna aren't being left out. Check out the new archery range for the Zapotecs, by Lopess, one of our community members.

European Bison, by MrLux. These pretty beasts almost disappeared from the face of the earth in the 1920's (Wikipedia). Still missing someone to animate them and sounds wildfiregames.com/forum/topic/

A Han Chinese town, made by Jaimele in the Atlas map editor.

Don't forget to check out Terra Magna from our in-game mod-downloader! (settings → mod selection → download mods). Terra Magna is a civilization mod that features the Zapotecs, the Han Chinese and the Xiongnu.

While waiting for MSAA filter, we added a new "Sharpening Filter" effect to reduce the blurring induced by the FXAA filter. The amount of sharpening is configurable in the options.

In the next version, map makers will be able to recenter their map when resizing them.

A lot of work is being put towards upgrading @SpiderMonkeyJS, a big part of the 0 A.D. engine. This upgrade represents a huge amount of work. If you're interested in the technical details, you can read more about the upgrade here: wildfiregames.com/forum/index.

You can listen to the @play0ad soundtrack on : open.audio/library/albums/1206

If you have your own instance then I think you should folow this to listen to it but I'm not sure how it works exactly: open.audio/federation/music/li

It's music so don't forget to support the artist: play0ad.bandcamp.com/ or donate to the game too: play0ad.com/community/donate/

It's a great game!

An ancient town in the Maurya Empire, by Jaimele.

Tired of seeing jagged edges on your buildings? A24 will include at last, new graphic option called FXAA, that will definitely get rid of what one of our users tenderly called "The Sawtooth effect". We're working on more filters, so stay tuned :)
