    Sign in to follow this  

    Ahoy Pathfinders!

    As we gear up for the new season, we have some exciting changes in store for you. In addition to the scheduled official server wipe, we have addressed several issues, including the display of loaded tames on Tame Railings, disappearing food in Tame Houses/Hatcheries upon server restarts, Xbox crashing problems, and much more! We've also made updates to the Vitamin management system, the singleplayer map, and added new ship tracking features, along with a few other quality of life improvements.

    To make these changes, official servers will be temporarily offline on Wednesday, March 15th at 7AM PDT, with an estimated return time of 12PM PDT. Unofficial servers can expect to receive the update shortly after.

    :anchor: Unofficial Community :anchor:

    We would like to take a moment to express our appreciation for the unofficial server community and the significant contributions that you have made to ATLAS. Your creativity and support have helped shape the game and offer unique gameplay experiences for players. We believe that the unofficial server community has the potential to continue taking ATLAS to new heights. 

    We will be releasing an updated Server Grid Editor (SGE) after the patch on the 15th to allow players wishing to use, or have access to, the official maps. Note that there are no other changes to the SGE since its previous update.

    We understand that modding is an important aspect of the ATLAS community, and we're committed to supporting mod developers as much as we can. We are working on an update for the DevKit to match it to the latest version of the game. While we don't have an exact release date for the update yet, it shouldn't be too long after the patch. We hope that the updated DevKit will make it easier for you to continue creating amazing content for the game.

    Official Servers Wipe & New Maps

    We are returning to our larger map layout for our PvP server, though we are retaining the Xbox only server format for those who prefer it. As for the official PvE server, it will remain the same size but with the reintroduction of the different claim types for companies to secure land.

    [Global][PvP] The Cobra’s Strike

    • Crossplay
    • 9x9 map size 
    • All quest content will be available
    • One open world (no regions or portals)
    • All claim types (claimable islands, claimable lawless, and unclaimable lawless)

    [Global][PvE] The Whale’s Solitude

    • Crossplay
    • 6x6 map size 
    • All quest content will be available
    • One open world (no regions or portals)
    • All claim types (claimable islands, claimable lawless, and unclaimable lawless)

    [Console][PvP] Emerald Coast

    • Xbox players only (no PC)
    • 3x3 map size 
    • Quest content (Power Stones etc.) will not be available
    • One open world (no regions or portals)
    • Claimable islands and unclaimable lawless only (no claimable lawless)


    Singleplayer Map


    Exciting news for all solo players out there! We're thrilled to announce that we're adding the Wonder Island and spawn points for the Army of the Damned (AotD) and Industrial Transient Nodes to the current singleplayer map. With these new additions, you'll have the opportunity to explore and craft all the latest content available in ATLAS, all while keeping your existing progress intact.

    • Added AotD Transient nodes to 150+ islands for collecting Cursed Bone Chips.
    • Added Industrial Transient nodes to 100+ islands for collecting Brimstone.
    • Added 1 Wonder Island for crafting the Great Temple.

    Ship Icons on Map


    All ships, now including ally, enemy, and SotD, will be visible on the map in the grid you are located in. Players will have the option of hiding either the entire ship icon or just the text using the “Toggle Ship Icons” and “Toggle Ships Text” buttons on their map to reduce clutter. 

    Unofficial servers will have the option of disabling this feature by using one of the following command line arguments:

    • ?ShowShipInServer=false (completely disables)
    • ?ShowEnemyShipsUnderFog=false (disable seeing ships covered by Fog of War)

    The different ship icons will be colored coded to provide easier identification:

    • Your own ships: Normal (unchanged)
    • Ally ships: Cyan
    • Enemy ships: Red
    • Ship of the Damned: Brown

    Vitamin Management


    Vitamin Levels:

    Vitamin levels now persist through death, instead of being reset.

    The damage over time from vitamin depletion, poisoning, deficiency, and surplus has been removed. Instead, each vitamin will provide a different debuff to players when not adequately maintained.

    Vitamin Depletion (0%) and Poisoning (100%)

    • Vitamin A - 20% increase to damage taken.
    • Vitamin B - 20% reduced stamina recovery rate.
    • Vitamin C - 30 reduced fortitude.
    • Vitamin D - 20% reduced speed.

    Vitamin Deficiency (1% - 10%) and Surplus (80% - 99%)

    • Vitamin A - 10% increase to damage taken.
    • Vitamin B - 10% reduced stamina recovery rate.
    • Vitamin C - 15 reduced fortitude.
    • Vitamin D - 10% reduced speed.

    Cooking QOL:

    To encourage players to utilize their cooking skills, a few quality of life changes have been provided.

    • Increased Grill water amount from 300 to 1000.
    • Slightly reduced grown vegetable and egg requirements in cooked recipes.
    • Cooked recipe foods now give their secondary vitamins much quicker.
    • Chickens stored in Tame Hatcheries or Barns will produce unfertilized eggs over time.


    Players will now experience even more realistic effects from overeating! If you eat more than your stomach can handle your pants will look a little tighter and you’ll become extremely sleepy…

    • Removed damage to health when overeating.
    • Added torpor to the player when overeating.
    • A player’s stomach will visibly get enlarged when they are overeating.


    Is there anything more immersion breaking than randomly pooping on the floor? We are proud to say our pirates are now potty trained!

    • Removed the chance a player will poop randomly.
    • Player pooping is now only activated through keybind (F11 by default).
    • Pooping reduces food levels by 15.
    • Added a cooldown to pooping.

    :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,

    Submarine is now unlocked when defeating the Lord Vicious, regardless if you have collected all the duped mythical food larders and ammo boxes as an individual.

    Does anyone understand the reasoning behind GPS for ships now?  There's an extra level of irony to it, when deciding to turn on Fog of War.

    The best guess our crew has come up with, is perhaps some players had an exploit that showed them ships on the map - and being unable to fix it, they decided to make it a feature.

    Barring that, this seems like a terrible decision. It breaks immersion, and breaks pvp.  Yes,  sure, we can turn it on and off for ourselves.  No one will do that, knowing it'll put them at a disadvantage to adversaries.
