The medieval sandbox game Ancient Warfare 3 got a new patch recently that you need to check out. That’s because Update 0.40 adds a new color picker and improvements to the game’s file browser.

The new color picker feature allows you to quickly select colors from visible objects or a particular scene that you like, so you can make some adjustments if needed. This can be accessed in the battle and unit editor.

Part of what makes Ancient Warfare 3 great is that you can customize various aspects of the game to make them your own. That is why the file browser is an essential tool, especially when saving, loading, and importing stuff.

In Update 0.40, some improvements to the file browser have been implemented. For instance, folders are now supported for custom items. Additionally, there’s a tabbed interface in the navigation bar that lets you quickly go to different folders with a simple mouse click. Other quality-of-life changes include the ability to bookmark paths, rename entries, and the delete/rename buttons being visible only when hovering the mouse over them.
