    Got on as soon as update finished and all our large tames were dead, all our elephants, giraffes, rhino and bears. Apparently starved which doesn't make any sense, that's weeks of taming work gone, can anything be done to fix because this is out of control? Not even worth the 3x if we don't have tames to gather with

    How to recreate the barrel roll bug.

    1. Have a Brig
    2. Have a bear with a cargo saddle on it
    3. Sail to sea, wait for it.

    If you remove the cargo saddle, the Brig won't roll.

    Warning: If you have a ship with a animal + cargo saddle, your ship is probably toast.

    I still cannot get into the non-dedicated that I host on xbox.  Every time I try and join it crashes when it starts loading in "Oceans".  I have logged out, hard reset, I've tried all I can think of.  I havn't been able to get in even once since the update.

    We lost all of our elephants (8), pigs (3) and at least 15 bears due to the starvation bug. For some reason the rhinos and giraffes were unaffected. I’m not sure if anyone in charge cares but we do.

    There was an unannounced change as well. They cut the number of building pieces you could use in an area even more.

    So, they don't let us clip into terrain, and now to DEAL with that terrain and make everything EVEN AND FLAT, we had to use more pieces and now we can't even do that?

    Building was going fine when I logged out, when I logged in... capped. Weeks of work ruined. What, to help XBox players!?!? 

    Most of the XBox players I know, my Son included, can't even log in on XBox because of all of the crashing. He hasn't played in weeks. So, you roll back a nerf to "pillar bases" that hide flags, and INSTEAD YOU NERF REGULAR BASES AT GROUND LEVEL!!!!!!

    Yeah, I think I'm done for awhile. Enjoy your XBox players... the ones that you can actually keep logged in without crashing and memory issues.

    And this is NOT in a Lawless area, but an owned island where I was building a GUILD port!!

    I have an idea. Let's set up an award ( ex.: Developer's Darwin Award ) for the worst communication developer team and the worst update category. I also have a nominee for it.

    I know the saying, "No news is good news" is usually true. 

    However the lack of news can also be a bit unnerving. 

    I did read when we started playing that it was going to be radio-silent while they did some fixes, and the last update was true to that fact. We had heard nothing for weeks and then over the course of a day or so there was an update and a patch that went out to all. 

    Now here we sit again, in the dark, waiting for something... anything... about what might come. 

    It would be nice if they took this time to give out some weekly or biweekly teasers or discussion points. What sort of fixes are they working on or looking into? What are the things they plan to focus on for the next update? What sort of items do they hope to include eventually? 

    I am not asking for things that are set in stone, or things that we will get tomorrow - but something like "coming to an Atlas near you in a future update" or "Something we are thinking about - what are your thoughts?". 

    I know constant communication with the players is a lot to ask, but I would think that a weekly or biweekly something isn't too much - but that is just me. 

    Overall, still loving the game thus far and can't wait to see what it manages to grow into.

    As someone who decided to give this game another shot (after i quit shortly before the last reset) im quite concerned actually. The lag seems to be worse than ever (with less players than ever), so they seem to have reduced the hardware/Server part. Even twitter went kind of dark. Last time i played, it at least looked like they tried. Now it feels like they just completely gave up. All the problems, annoyances and bugs the game had before i left are still there. But hey. We have cats.
