    Edit (May 18th): Due to an unexpected issue, we’ve made the difficult decision to delay tonight’s patch to next Wednesday, May 25th @ 7PM PDT. We want to ensure the start of the new season is as smooth as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding.

    Ahoy Pathfinders!

    The time has come for new adventures to begin again in the world of Atlas. While familiar, the seas have shifted and hold new mysteries and challenges for both new and old pathfinders alike. With the recent discovery of the Golden Age ruins, pathfinders will find themselves tested by new adversaries that will strike down the most experienced of pirates if not careful. Seven of these bosses now roam the lands waiting to unleash their might on any that dare to find them. Are you brave enough to take the challenge?

    There is also talk of an new unexplored region, shrouded in mystery, that may bring a new set of trials to pathfinders looking to unlock its secrets. Do not trust your senses in this eerie place for one false move may spell doom for you and your crew.

    The map itself has also undergone a few changes to make traversing the world a little easier. As always, with the new content, we are also continuing to fix many of the issues that have been reported by you, the community, and will continue to do so until we get it right. We want to say thank you to all the pathfinders that have provided feedback and suggestions and that continue to support us as we make gradual steps to make Atlas the best gameplay experience possible.

    With that said, the servers will go down May 18th at 7PM PDT and will undergo a few hours of maintenance. Barring any issues, we expect the servers to return and season nine to start around May 18th, 10PM PDT. We wish all the best luck in your new adventures and, of course, happy sailing!

    v543.0

    Season 9 Patch
    Ahoy pathfinders! The tides of Atlas are shifting again. New exotic locales to explore and dangers to confront have emerged.

    New Content
    New Mini-Bosses of the Golden Age Ruins
    Seven new Mini-Bosses have been added. Each Golden Age Ruin island will now have its own boss to find and fight.

    Ancient Fire Elemental

    The first fire elemental ever to be created. An unknown, wicked deity possessed inflamed, volcanic rocks. It is rumored that all other fire elementals derive from this one.

    Elder Rock Elemental

    Kekada

    Buwaya

    A cursed Crocodile that is only told about in myths originating from the Philippines. Legend says, those who fall victim to this monster are taken to the world of the spirits.

    Eber

    The Boar God. Even creatures have deities, and this one smells awful according to Pathfinders who have encountered it. They say it is a big, feral boar with rotting flesh and piercing eyes that roams the forest.

    Crystal Scorpion

    Found in the Golden Age Ruin island in E1
     

    Maw Waters
    A new region has been discovered! A brave, possibly foolish, Pathfinder followed the Ships of the Damned across the waters of Atlas. He returned with tales of a land shrouded in darkness and unnaturally thick fog, with creatures that seem to vanish or appear out of thin air, and eerie green fires. As proof of his findings he brought back a strange crystalline substance, soft to the touch yet somehow solid. His final notes state that any Pathfinder who ventures to these lands should not trust their eyes, as empty stretches of land may have hidden dangers.

    New Items
     

    Lantern of the Maw

    lanjpg.jpg
    A special lantern that automatically appears on ships when they enter the Maw Waters region. Interact with the steering wheel to access the lanterns inventory, see current Essence value, and craft Solidified Essence. Fully fill your lantern to leave the Maw Waters region.

    How to gather Essence of the Maw and fill your Lantern
    There are several activities that will grant your lantern Essence of the Maw. With the exception of the Relic of the Maw all Essence is gathered on the ship the player enters on.
     

    Active Accumulation

    • Destroy Ships of the Damned - Each ship destroyed will grant 10 Essence
    • Destroy other players ships - Each ship destroyed will grant 25 Essence
    • Obtain a Relic of the Maw - The Relic of the Maw is found in Flotsom and when consumed on a ship instantly fills that ship's lantern to full. Grants 100 Essence

    Passive Accumulation

    • Travel 500 meters, either by sailing, swimming, or walking. Rewards 2-3 Essence.
    • Survive in the Maw - For every 5 minutes spent inside the Maw Waters 3 Essence is rewarded.

    Essence of the Maw
    A viscous smoke that can be collected within a special lantern. This item is only acquired in the Maw Waters region, and can not be used outside of the Maw Waters.
     

    Solidified Essence
    A semi-soft semi-solid crystal that glows a dim blueish green hue.
     

    Relic of the Maw
    An ancient Golden Age Relic, found only in the Maw Waters. Using this Relic will instantly grant 100 Essence of the Maw.

    Reworked Map
    The World of Atlas has shifted again, new lands have emerged and the known world has been disfigured. Maps all around the Atlas will need to be redrawn with these newly discovered regions.

    Industrial Wonder Content

    Due to the feedback we received surrounding the Industrial Wonder, we have decided to cut it from this patch so that we have adequate time to redesign and adjust.

         :anchor: Final Note :anchor:

    Again, we would like to emphasize that ATLAS is still in Early Access, meaning many things can and will likely continue to drastically change - even in the middle of development. Anything discussed is only up to date as of the moment it is posted. Features and changes that ultimately make it to the next patch, as well as timing, may be different from what was previously discussed. 
    As always, we appreciate the suggestions and feedback from the community. Please keep them coming! Thank you for all of your support! 🙂

     

    Happy Sailing,

    Hi Wildcard new player here. Well sort-of I bought your game when it was first released but my computer at the time couldn't run it. Just want to say I'm so happy you guys are still working on the game and haven't given up on it, even with all the haters! This game is starting to get better and I think you will start seeing more players.

    You guys rock and so do your games!

    It would be nice if tickets were actually answered and not automatically marked as "solved".

    modular ships sink time increased... hopefully this includes the bug fix of instantly sinking ships when a tile get to 0 HP?

    Patch kit costs reduced by 50%... nice but a good value would be minimum 90-95%... or even better remove them and make legacy repair system!

    -> still useless to use modular ships... at this stage i would say the update and wipe is a fail.

     

    A Fire Elemental Boss... seriously have you ever tried to kill a common fire elemental? I wonder which weapon can do damage versus those beasts? A cyclope you can shot in the eye and after the has a short period of increased damage taken... rockies are decent to kill with big explosions... but what do you use for a fire elemental? the only thing i never tested was a catapult with rocks... every other thing he is just loughing about and burns you to hell...

    So Hydras and Dragon remain and gain you the Power Stones... so new boss loot we have to figure out what it is? XP? that was removed from Hdyra, Dragon, Yeti.... maybe gold or Blue Prints?
