    Patch v406.7 Season 4: The Maelstrom is here!

    Sign in to follow this  

    Hello Pathfinders! 

    Welcome to Season 4: The Maelstrom! We’re excited to launch The Maelstrom, which was designed to intensify the pirating and seafaring experience! We looked at player habits and reshuffled islands and resources to align the map to encourage more interaction though both conflict and cooperative gameplay. We’ve also made a number of balancing changes to improve the initial gameplay experience and make other strategies for gold more viable.

    This is just the first step in the grander scheme of new changes coming to Atlas. There are many under-the-hood (or should we say, under-the-deck) improvements and new features coming down the pipeline. This new patch is just setting up the foundation for it! You can’t build a ship without a proper frame in place after all.

    We’d also like to thank the community for all of your support and patience! We are excited to continue on the renewed Atlas journey with all of you!

    Below you’ll find detailed Patch Notes for our latest update, v406.7.

     :anchor: Released Patch Notes :anchor:

    New Map created

    • Centralized Golden Age islands for a clearer path to completing the compass.
    • Centralized high-density servers to reduce the distance/sail time between conflict areas.
    • Updated mineral foliage on islands so its no longer tied to plant biomes.
    • Removed most unique discoveries to reduce the grind of getting to the max level cap.

     

    Economy Balance Updates

    • Army of Dead on Golden Age Islands gold drops reduced by 62%
    • Island Claim upkeep costs reduced by about 75%
    • NPC Crew upkeep costs reduced by 84% on land
    • NPC Crew upkeep on sea reduced by about half.

     

    Other changes

    • Army of Dead Treasure Guards has been made significantly easier for low-quality treasure maps.
    • Updated early game XP curve so you don't immediately level.
    • Moved skill point gains to be more generous in lower levels and level off in later levels.
    • Army of Dead on Golden Age Islands XP rewards reduced by 60%

     

    :anchor: Custom Servers :anchor:

    Season 4: The Maelstrom introduces a new map update in which islands have been reshuffled, added, or removed. Server owners, please see the lists below for more details. Custom Servers using any islands that are no longer in the build may see errors and it is recommended that server owners perform a wipe and swap out these islands in the ServerGridEditor.

    An updated JSON file for the islands is also available here [http://cdn.atlasdedicated.com/islands.json] for server owners to drop into the ServerGridEditor\Data folder as shown:

    Is that it? 
    All this hype for 12 lines of changes?
    Trailer video that was used at the launch of the game with literally 2 new scenes saying NEW MAP and SEASON 4?

    Bummer on ditching discoveries, thought that was a nice touch, but cheers on the rest.

    biggest change is still the whole map and where the ressource are and so on and i think more islands than befor and stuff like that, like they said they need a good frame 🙂

    That's the thing, we all are, thats why Atlas population took a nose dive and why you are even getting an update.

    This is a MASSIVE  change. I have a little experience with programming and am good friends with people that work for codemasters so know a little more than most. Stop your bitching. I for one am looking forward to playing this once my console has downloaded the update and I have got some more sleep seeing as I'm in the UK and have had to get up at 4am to install!

    this is a joke not only do you not manage to improve the gameplay but you also make the npc cheaper for spamw more in the island than bigger disappointment and I am not the only crazy person who thinks that it is not enough

    "Custom Servers using any islands that are no longer in the build may see errors and it is recommended that server owners perform a wipe and swap out these islands in the ServerGridEditor", i think the work grapeshot is looking for is 'required', not 'recommended'.... 😕

    It really isn't a massive change at all. Brought in old assets, got rid of current ones, set the layout, auto render the ocean. After that tweak some numbers and boom. Update done, honestly a single person could have done this patch in a couple days. This is just like the last 3 patches they've done in the past 6 months.

    This is a joke and an insult to anyone with active brain cells. I give the game 2 weeks, 4 at a push.

    Ok i just played for 15 mins. Ark resources are in the game on lawless instead of ATLAS resources- we can't build anything.  RIP -- this is why you need to do public test realms devs. its like common thing to listen to your players and work with them on upgrades, not keep them in the dark and mess up a re-launch.

    So I'm just going to assume that a new map also means for the second time in...what....a month (?) there will be players who've lost everything and will be starting fresh once again...but this time we all have to start fresh.

    People acting surprised knowing that wildcard is a walking, talking April Fools joke. Admittedly their first few months it was a great company then they release their first paid DLC while still in preview got greedy and went down the dumps and have been on a free fall ever since. There’s a reason for a very popular term in the gaming world, heard of Getting Arked?
