Today I am putting the finishing touches on Antiquitas v1.28.0 and pushing it out to all platforms, and this probably the most significant update to the game since it first came out. As I was playing Antiquitas the other day, I thought ya know, gee. Why don't I just port the My Colony online server over to Antiquitas? So, that's what I did, and now we have Antiquitas: The Online Update!
If you are familiar with My Colony, the online experience for Antiquitas will be familiar to you. You are now able to start a new city in online mode, under the tutelage of another real life online player whose city has gained independence. That player will be able to help you get started and grow your civilization. Online global chat is also now enabled in the game, allowing players to communicate and help each other while they play.
The three Docks structures in the game have gained online resource trading capabilities. Building the docks will unlock the global online resource marketplace, where you can buy and sell resources with other players.
Every online city will also now gain it's own city website, located at https://antiquitas.my-colony.com. Right now the website is loaded with My Colony references, as I basically just copied the My Colony website and made some conversions to support Antiquitas, but the site will be updated within the coming days.
Since the online feature does copy a lot of code from My Colony, I may have missed some My Colony references in the game, so let me know if you find things that are out of place.
Anyway, since there was so much code copy/pasting to get online working, I consider it somewhat experimental in this update, and the next update will clean up anything that is amiss. That said, I don't really expect a lot of problems, since the online code has been pretty well hashed out over a long history of My Colony updates, but we will see what happens.
So go ahead and give Antiquitas online a try, and stay tuned for more to come!

Antiquitas v1.28.0 Released
Antiquitas v1.26.0 Released
I have just put the finishing touches on Antiquitas v1.26.0, and the update should be hitting all platforms within the coming days. This is a major update which rolls up all features and bug fixes from the My Colony engine contained in MC patches v0.96.0, v0.97.0, v0.98.0, v0.99.0, v1.0.0, v1.1.0, and v1.2.0. Now, if you've followed My Colony, you know that there have been some major changes contained in those releases, and they are now hitting Antiquitas, so let's go over everything that's new!
Antiquitas v1.25.0 Released
The v1.25.0 patch for Antiquitas is now live and should be hitting all platforms within a couple of days. This update rolls up all of the bug fixes and engine updates from My Colony releases v0.90.0, v0.91.0, v0.92.0, v0.93.0, v0.94.0, and v0.95.0. Because of the sheer number of engine improvements in those My Colony releases, this is actually a fairly significant update for Antiquitas, so let's just highlight some of the things that are new.
Antiquitas v1.24.0 Released
Today the v1.24.0 patch for Antiquitas has been released and should be hitting all platforms within the next few days. This update rolls up all engine patches and upgrades from My Colony v0.85.0, v0.86.0, v0.87.0, v0.88.0, and v0.89.0. That's a lot of patches, and there are a handful of new features that are now available as a result.
Antiquitas v1.23.0 Released
Antiquitas v1.23.0 has just been released, and the patch should be hitting all platforms within the coming days. This update rolls up the engine upgrades from My Colony patches v0.82.0, v0.83.0, and v0.84.0. These patches include tons of bug fixes and performance improvements, but that's not all. With this update brings the Import/Export slider, allowing you to fine tune the amount of goods you buy and sell. In-app notifications for LAN multiplayer games have been revamped. The bulldozer tool has received a significant upgrade, allowing you to click + drag to bulldoze multiple structures at a time. Many improvements have been made to Regions as well.
Even though My Colony is vastly more popular than Antiquitas, Antiquitas is still able to take full advantage of My Colony's popularity by running off of the same core engine, so you can expect a constant flow of improvements and feature updates to Antiquitas for a long time to come.
And remember, if you are only playing Antiquitas on Steam, you may not realize that you can also take it with you on the go. Antiquitas is available on Android and iOS as well, and if you sign in using your Ape Apps account, your full premium content from Steam will transfer over to mobile. Find all download links here:
Enjoy the update, much more to come, and thanks for playing Antiquitas!
