ATLAS

Patch Preview: Trade Functionality Arriving

Recommended Posts

1st, Reduced Transport Radius of Warehouse from 500m to 450m

this is kinda ridiculous, i can not place FARMHOUSES in that range because farmhouses are blocking eachother so i am out of range for the WAREHOUSE

so if i have 3 farmhouses only 1 warehouse can connect to it...

this is odd dont you think

 

2nd, Progress: Please make sure that new players are not lost and quit the game right away

 

3rd:

     I tried to play devils advocate in general discussion and provide some logical reasons for making gold a required mat. However the prices your proposing for ships are completely out of line, especially when compared to the price to upkeep and puckle spam an island.

     Your current plan WILL result in the following if not adjusted. 

1. Megas will take the majority of the CPs and spam trades for 3 wood to generate gold. They will lock out other companies via the preference list further monopolizing the advantage.

2. A TON of really pissed off smaller teams and angry infighting when a ship gets stolen/ crashed/ xbox crashed/ lost to a bug-cyclone-SotD-fleet-whale etc

3. Swarms of people sailing for hours in a sloop only to get their ass kicked on shore in 15 seconds and the sloops destroyed in 30 seconds.

     If you want to increase the cost of ships, fine, but ONE HUNDRED FOLD? Try..

     -----> Schooner 250

     -----> Brig 1000

     -----> Galley 5000

or try zero cost build on the ship but add a DAILY/ WEEKLY upkeep cost, similar to an island.

 

Wow. Bad idea. I mean literally terrible.

Good luck

One more thing... grid ship limit is 40 ships.. BUT.. ships starting taking dmg when you have 40/40 anchored ships in harbour.. if you forget to check.. you can lose ship in your harbour.. we lost 4 gallys like taht last season.. so.. in next season it will be -200k gold .. like da fak?    This game supposed to be pirate game.. maybe it was at the start.. and now? foking trade simulator and farmhouse micromanager?  No performance improves.. grids are laggy af after 2 weeks from every wipe... BUT.. we have SEAFORTS guys... definately no more lags and desynchs..

    Follow up do you guys have ANYONE spreadsheeting the time investment ratios for your proposals?

Even for a well seasoned player your propsed ship costs are WAY out of line.

Is there something your holding back? Did the loot tables get adjusted on creatures to add gold as a drop or something?

The only "theme" i agree with is that gallys should be expensive. Sidenote the difference between a schooner/brig/gally isn't even balanced correctly

-----> schooner max crew 14 w 10 cannon ports

-----> brig max crew 18 w 12 cannon ports

------> gally max crew 56 w 52 cannon ports (right? Cant remember exact gally specs lol)

    You don't see that also? Really?

This is insane. 
 

There is literally nobody left playing the game but a handful of small companies. You’ve literally killed the game for the people who’ve been your most loyal supports and continue to play your game. These gold costs for building ships aren’t just outrageous. They are game breaking!
 

And you haven’t even released information to indicate how much money the trade system provides. As others have said it is deep in the tech tree. None of these things will work in practice for small companies. And you aren’t winning with your large companies due to barrels. Nami sees this on Discord every god damn day. 
 

You’ve literally torpedoed your own game.

Cheap right///

You just 100% confirmed why i'm not coming back after the wipe. In fact A LOT of the long time players and big companies aren't coming back. You'll notice your player count after the upcoming wipe lol.

The ship prices EVERYONE disliked and asked you not to do! you just raised and made 50 thousand times worse.

50k for a Galleon, your out of your minds. The only way this even works is if gold is handed to you on a plate in which case makes it worthless. Simple economics. How is a solo company expected to make 50k while you remove gold making opportunities. For the love of god do yourselves a BIG favour and reverse that decision. 

You just killed your own game. Gratz. Implementing changes no one asked for and adjusting things no one cares about. 50 cannonballs stack to 100, NO ONE CARES! It made zero difference to anyone's life.

All I can do is laugh at this point because this game has turned into nothing but a joke lol. I've been here since the 1st roll out and enjoyed the game but you've lost your way....

You should seriously reconsider this "Tentative" change... I mean seriously LOL

We'll get apologies for the typos.

 

 

Or not.

Ok here it goes....the ship prices are ridiculous and although I will check it out, not sure I will stay on official. 

Let's take a minute to really think through this. You have companies in the past loading the season up with tons of gallys, brings, etc. You have companies spamming farmhouses everywhere they can. No company needs 4 gallys and 4 brigs per player or 10 farmhouses per island...on every island. 

You have island points system, a discovery points system, and an xp system.  How about utilizing those to control or manage and balance out the number of ships and farmhouses a company can build or control?  Change how island points are distributed based on the xp and do of each company member to avoid companies tossing in unused accounts to boost their island points.

If ships can only be built based on discovery points, you will reduce the amount ships a company can build initially. If each ship a company has on their fleet costs the company island points, they won't house 25 gallys and each gally and brig they do build would have specific purposes. Also, making farmhouses cost island points will encourage companies to use and place these strategically. 

I honestly think that by doing something like this it would improve server performance, and balance things out a bit better...just my opinion.

This is maybe the most stupid post i have ever seen.

It starts off nice, i mean, yeah prices are ridiculous omgz.

If you actually played this game, you would realise that there is many ships just sitting in harbor 24/7.

Those ships don't actually have any effect on your enjoyment of the game, they are just sitting there because other people who actually know how to play the game have left them there.

Are you trying to suggest that the "devs" nerf ship counts to improve server performance? It appears obvious that you have never been in a company that has ships.......

What about suggesting that the devs actually improve the game, with errrrr coding and technical stuff that errr... whatever, and allow for ships in their pirate game????

Sigh.

  • Reduced the output of crafting Gunpowder from 2 to 1
  • Reduced the output of crafting Blasting Powder from 2 to 1

So what you're REALLY saying is it now costs twice as much raw material to craft explosive materials.

Finally the patch I was waiting for! I have been asking and asking for months to make it nearly impossible for me to build ships in a SAILING GAME. I can’t wait to have so much fun trading sheep for wood. Hurray for Settlers Of Atlas. This makes me ill after 2 years of EA.

NO DEV IS LISTENING

What? Wow, you are a newbie.

 

Newbie? Sailing around and lagging out to see hundreds of unused boats everywhere consumes server resources...ever lag out pulling up to an island...maybe if some of the structures and boats placed require people to actually think and plan instead of spamming them all over then it would not be such a headache. The gold for boats is just one way the devs are going g to try and limit these...just not the approach I think will work well and will drive people away. 

And for your other comments, well, you are whats wrong with the world. Criticize suggestions and open discussion but offers nothing...maybe once you get an iq and grow up a bit, you'll be able to add some value instead of being a cancer.  

PS...been in a company lol...clearly you've never been employed or if you have, low end jobs where your opinion is meaningless.

Oh, those poor atlas devs, who knows what the manatees are telling them to do.

If only those opinions were not meaningless edit: I hope the devs don't think of their job as low end btw.

Lets think and plan now, don't worry about what has happened in the past!!

I'll day, we dont know how easy it is to farm gold through trades. But itd better be stupid easy for those prices.

I'm not even saying the price is bad. It's that in Atlas, for solos and small companies these boats are 1 time use items.

I can save that up and spend it on a schooner or brig if I know it will be there when I wake up. But it wont. These things are made of tissue and you've seen fit to arm us all with tactical nukes.

I sincerely look forward to you giving us better offline protection. Or adjusting these prices much lower on PvP. PvE should be fine with this, actually a good change for that crowd. Should free up some server load , if that's even a thing.

Lol this more of a smartass joke than a serious proposal but it could drive the point home if it was actually accomplished...

Everybody,... Literally everyone on the ENTIRE map join into ONE SINGLE COMPANY.

     Name it "Fuck Barrels & Ships are Overpriced"

     Instead of a boycott think of it as a "sit in" or a "starvation protest"... 🤣

 

It'd bring any REALISTIC TESTING to a screeching halt..

Probably get blacklisted for making such a suggestion but dgf style til death...

 

It's funny to me at least dammit. 🤣😂😏
