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.

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/

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 :)

LordGood's gracious reminder that pyrogenesis, our game engine is not limited to Antiquity.
Pyrogenesis 1861 is a mod that aims to depict the American Civil War (1861-1865).

play0ad.official Hippopotamuses have been spotted near waterholes, you might see some in A24!

Stan`, one of our artists, has been working on streamlining some of the current game icons using Inkscape, to improve their look and consistency.
In parallel he also made new icons like burning for "status effects" a new feature that will be introduced in the new alpha.
