Antiquitas v1.11.0 Released

I have just finished up the v1.11.0 update to Antiquitas and it should be going out to all platforms within the next day or so. Besides the usual engine and bug updates, this release includes a small graphic update to the Roman Naumachia structure, a new Dock for the Gauls, and a brand new map you can play with either civ, the Aegyptus terrain. Aegyptus is a desert map with a few new terrain features. Resources are a bit more scarce there, but it shouldn't be too hard.

I have also added a few starting water pools to the Italia map for Gauls who start there with no way to get water.

Antiquitas v1.10.0 Released

Good news everyone, the Antiquitas v1.10.0 update has just been published! Here is the lowdown:

New Structures
  • Nobiliary House
  • Flax Farm
  • Ship Builder
  • Fisherman Wharf
  • Struggle Arena
Engine updates and fixes from My Colony v0.62.0

I usually don't like making big engine changes to Antiquitas, and usually leave that for My Colony updates, but there was an error in the engine over the last several releases that was causing workers/rovers to just stop moving, and I think I might finally have it fixed (fingers crossed). If it turns out to be the fixed, the patch will be making its way to My Colony v0.63.0 probably later this week.

That's all for today, enjoy!

Antiquitas v1.9.0 Released

I have just published the v1.9.0 update to Antiquitas, and it should be arriving on most platforms within the next couple of days. Here is a look at what is new.

New Structures
  • Jeweler
  • Bard Stand
  • Small Gaulish Torch
  • Tailor
  • Struggle Ring
New ad-free Structure: Decorative Gaulish Torch

Engine updates and fixes from My Colony v0.61.0

Now, about an hour after I had already bundled all of the assets for this update, I got a fresh batch of Gaul graphics from @jova , which means there is more content already ready to go for the next update, so you know there is already yet another Gaul update coming in the pipeline!

Additionally, there have been a whole host of bug fixes specific to the Windows 10 Store version of the game. I have also added some additional error logging to the Windows 10 Store client to help squash further bugs particular to that release. With the Windows 10 April Update supposedly hitting all Windows devices soon, I am hoping there is a performance update to the UWP WebView that should bring the Windows 10 Store performance up to par with Chrome and the Ape Apps Launcher edition of the game. Fingers crossed!

Finally, I am going to attempt to get both Antiquitas and My Colony released to the Xbox One console sometime in May. I already have them up and running on the console, it is just a matter of getting approval from Microsoft. So we will see what happens there.

That's all for today's update. Thanks for playing, and stay tuned for more!

Antiquitas v1.7.0 Released

Antiquitas v1.7.0 has just been wrapped up and it's starting to make its way to various platforms. Here is the expected release schedule:

Web: Available Now
Ape Apps Launcher: Available Now
Windows Store: Available Tomorrow
iPhone/iPad: Available Tomorrow
Android: Available Later This Week
Native Clients: Available Later This Week

The issue with the Android and Native Clients is that my main development machine is currently down and so I will be spending the next couple of days getting everything back up and running and will be unable to publish updates to Android or the Native Clients before then. My iOS and Windows development is done on different machines, so they were not impacted, and the Ape Apps Launcher is automatically self-updating and so does not require anything special on my part.

This is the second Gaul update, and includes 15 fresh new Gaul buildings straight from graphics mastermind @jova . Also included are two new premium structures and a new resource: Wheat Beer.

The Gauls are now somewhat far along and totally playable, but there is still a lot more to come. @jova is cranking out the graphics faster than I can get them added into the game. Like I mentioned earlier, I have to spend the next couple of days getting my computer working again, and then My Colony is way past due for an update, so I've absolutely got to work on that. Then, there will be yet another Gaul content update coming to Antiquitas, so stay tuned for a whole lot more!
