    Patch v535.8 - A New Season and Expanding the ATLAS World!

    Atlas Screenshot 2021.12.14 - 19.13.13.25.jpg

    Ahoy Pathfinders! 

    New land masses be appearin' on the horizon! The harsh climate and lack of water sources will make this area challenging to live on, but shapes of a mysterious building can be made out through thick fog covering part of the island. Monumental achievements await pathfinders seeking to call this Wonderous island home. With these changes comes a new map, a wipe and a new season for ATLAS!

    We’re taking the first step into building upon the vast world and wide seas of ATLAS. With this update, we are merging the NA and EU PVP servers into one large global server that we will continue to expand on as we work with the community to shape the ATLAS world. A big thank you to our passionate Pathfinders who helped steer our sails towards this grand new direction. We look forward to continuing to work with the community to enrich the world with more lands to explore and seas to discover!

    Servers will be going down to deploy the update tomorrow night, 12/15 at around 7:00 PM Pacific Time.

    The next patch is expected to be more focused on bug fixing and optimization as we design and flesh out our next steps for expanding the ATLAS map. We are also working on creating a public facing issue tracker to better address the community’s concerns in balance with ongoing development efforts. Please join us on the Official ATLAS Discord here for all the latest happenings!

    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! 🙂

    So how much gold do shipyards cost? Why remove the gold cost for ships if you still need gold to make shipyards. Solo players are still going to struggle

    Basic = 0, small = 500, Advanced = 1000, Large = 9999
    You'll spend it once and make as many ships as you want...it's cheaper, don't you think?

    This game is a joke, 2.5mil gold for a shipyard that the equivalent of 50 gallies. And not to mention this shipyard can be blown by a tortuga with torpedos in 10 seconds. At least now we know why they increased smithy slots to 300.


    Get a grip devs.

    If you want to make Atlas great again, here's a simple recipe:
    1) Unban everyone from atlas discord
    2) Unban everyone from ingame that got banned for a bullshit reason
    3) Listen to the veterans of this game when it comes to balance and suggestions and not to the average bob that complains about the nuts and bolts texture on cannons
    4) Don't chase new features and create even more bugs for yourself when you still need to balance/fix old features of the game.

    Besides some issues mentioned above already this is insane. There is a hugh list of (unexpected) bug fixes and known bugs that shall be addressed. Changes to the BP loot announced. Keep it up Devs. If this is the start of a new behavior and communication to the Pathfinder Community - and it is very welcome.

    Removed ship costs for at least the small starter ships is very welcome. This could make me reinstall Atlas to check it out... maybe in 1 or 2 patches in the future. BP shipyard costs look quite insane. But it really looks like you are making fixes like the Players ask you.

    Please remember the original ships are balanced by sails speed and weight. The new modular ships ignore weight in their basic structure completely. This could be an issue to add a fast ship with more weight capacity - but ok... i need to think about you may not allow cannons on this one so it's no PvP balance issue? Remember the good old days where you think 6,8 or 10 cannons on the Brig... or only one sided to reduce weight, reducing the ships to only necessary parts etc. while 2000 hours before you were so happy about your 18 cannons 6000 weight first combat Brig 😉

    Everybody is allowed to give feedback and it should be listened to. Even Players like Chukiki gave their feedback here and it was discussed about it. Obviuosly not everything will work fine and some ideas are bad. Would like to see your veteran suggestions. Feel free to post them. Feedback to optical issues and bugs is also necessary... but for me the gamplay and balance is more importand as well.

    if you ever, EVER, want to improve upon this game read this guy's post, its nothing out of the ordinary, just pure common sense.

    Oh and btw its embarrassing that after 3 years we dont have the option to change language from the options window.

    Yeah they definitely need to unban everyone because the last dev team was a bunch of dictators that banned anyone that disagreed with them.

    (xbox)1. Trials bugged crashes, nodes wont give metal/copper. 2. IF yall are not dropping us on xbox be like conan. They directly COMMUNICATED during game preview days that were just as bad as this games. 3. Unless both those happen that 7$(rounded up) price tag will not save this game. If yall released pc only meh fine. But doing xbox just to treat all those customers like shit will fuck this game in the long run. More so then it already is. Apologies for Bad grammar and Happy New Years.
