Classic Mode Jagged Shoreline

How difficult would it be to make the shoreline in Classic Mode as smooth as the original? I know this is an aesthetic thing and the release is the Definitive Edition but the Classic Mode shoreline graphics are actually worse than the original CD release.

This bug is on our list, thanks.


I noticed that too, thought it was intended, but the old way looks better :slight_smile:

Never tried that mode yet, whats the benifit

The graphics in Classic Mode are the same as the original release.

No, as far as I can see from ‘sStepSs’, this bug is still on their list… and still in the live version, this and other bugs like shadows missing.

Is this bug still on the list? I see it is still present in the recently released Update 10.

At the risk of not taking my own moderator advice and necroing this topic. The jagged shoreline in Age of Empires: Definitive Edition classic mode is still an issue.
