20210824 [Patch] 528.11 - Turtle Ship Update

Recommended Posts

Ahoy Pathfinders!

Well, the last journey abroad had been a rough go out on the open seas. But we braved through and persevered and finally arrived carrying the long-awaited cargo for all pathfinders to enjoy. 

Jumping to the stage first, we’ve made adjustments to our favorite arachnid to allow our pathfinders to traverse to new heights. Spiders are now able to spend their stamina to carry pathfinders vertically up steep terrain and jump higher and further than before. We can’t wait to see where you and your spider companions end up!

As teased previously, making her maiden voyage into the world of Atlas, the turtle ship brings new defensive options for you and your crew.

Not only is she a tank, fully decked out in armor and ready to take a beating, but she also offers some new utility that will change the landscape of the battlefield, literally.  Attached at the front of this massive ship is a dragon figurehead that players can activate to breathe clouds of smoke to conceal your fleet’s movements.   

We heard you like buffs so we’ve also added some buffs to buff towers to uniquely assist your fleet as needed. Depending on which type of resource is used, buff towers will now provide an additional benefit so you can gain advantages where they are needed most.

Need some handles in the corners? Try Amethyst and Herkimer in your spire to increase your turning force.

Need to lessen your load? Switch to Calcite and Quartz which will decrease the overall weight of a ship (items and structures carried included).

Overall, we hope that pathfinders use these new additions to compliment their unique play styles and make every confrontation a unique and memorable one.

     :anchor: Rate Up Event :anchor:


Finally, in addition to some major bug fixes to improve the game state, we’ll be holding a rate up event until September 6th! 

X4 Gold
X4 Taming
X5 Harvesting
X5 Exp

So grab your crew and take advantage of these higher rates while you can.

As always, we, the Atlas team, appreciate your support and ‘til next time, may your skies be clear, waters calm, and sails full in whichever way you roam.

     :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! 🙂

You have completely disconnected with your very small remaining player base and you keep adding crap nobody wants! You refuse to listen to the few of us left playing. Trash!!

No one wanted these boats.  They are poorly designed and apart from the rare use cases of the mortar boat offer nothing to the current game.  This games pop hovers around 110 players daily for a 11x11 grid map.  Most large companies are being manned by maybe 6-10 people.  Naval combat has pretty much disappeared from the game.   

Your response to this is to add more frail boats that move at 8 knots.  Sink like a rock when they take minimal damage.   And use a repair system no one likes or uses.
  
You stated that you wanted this game to be pvp focused but everything you do other then the mortar ships encourages nothing that remotely resembles pvp.  I'm going to let you in on something you seem to have missed.  No one likes the new boats.  No one likes barrels on boats.  No one likes the gold costs on ships.  NO ONE LIKE THESE CONTROL POINT BUFF TOWERS. 

For the love of all that is holy stop adding garbage to the game and FIX THE CORE GAME.  Performance issues, quality of life improvements etc.  That's what the players want.   You've stripped this game of its fun and added nothing to enhance the gameplay.  Talk to your god damn community and stop doing whatever you want.   Its not working and this game is a ghost town because of it.

You guys are trying your best to kill this game. This update is just a fucking joke and its easy to see that you fucked up this game and don't care about it anymore. You are probably just want to turn off the servers but you need to convince your boss or someone else that this game is dead and to do that you are trying your best to kill the player base by adding the worst shit that you can imagine

You have 200 players playing your game and you still manage to not listen to them. 

EVERY single change you've made in season 6 was bad in concept and execution. If only you could read the simple responses your players give you on your own patch notes inside your own platform...

Less time spent on RTS Starcraft Pylons and riding weird animals, and more time spent fixing the core experience of piracy/sailing/treasure finding please.

You devs are literally retarded. How does it feel to be absolutely trash at your job. There is zero chance you are getting another developer job if Atlas is your showcase on your resume.

They don't care about the rented servers to, a lot of problems there Official works much better, rented servers got more problems after the update on our server the Treasure Map Bottle are gone still can't fast travel because the map is blanco for a long time. also now that the spider is tamable, and you can walk up the mountain with them can't even defend my place there because I can't place defends there what a BS.

I'm an old school gamer who doesn't care for anything Pvp, I spent enough time in my younger days getting pissed at games you couldn't Save and had restart entirely when the lives ran out!

I love open world building games the most now, and Atlas is a top favorite of mine. Personally designing a Pirate ship and being the captain is bad ass!

I know this game has a lot of developing to do and thank the Devs. for the work you do. I personally hope you keep working on single player and add more content to it(like attackable merchant ships and towns) in the future.
