That Terrible Explosion

I know this isn’t really a big deal, but it caught my eye when looking at the picture/video of the different graphics between the old and new AoE 1 games. I was wondering if anyone else noticed it as it clashes with the new “good graphic look”:

The big arrows (forgot the name) that I believe are from nearby boats or “scorpion” siege units push dirt up into the air and the dirt flies in the same direction EVERY SINGLE TIME. Anyone else catch this little nuisance?

Yes it seems like we need a splash of dirt in all directions, or change it to a dust cloud!

Btw, triremes, balista and helepolis, balista towers, shoot those bolts.

what is that bolt lol

The “big arrows” represent balista bolts and other large projectiles that aren’t fired from a hand bow.
