Patch v549.6 - Atlas Summer Tune Up!

Recommended Posts

Ahoy Pathfinders,

This season has been one of the hottest on record and, with its end coming soon, we’ll be refitting the fleet. We’re making preparations and changes for the next season of adventure, starting with our Summer Tune Up! 
This maintenance patch is dedicated to fixing many of the bugs and issues that have accumulated over the past few months and hopefully, put Atlas in a manageable game state leading into the new improvements coming in the Fall. What changes, you ask? Well, you’ll have to bottle up your excitement for now but we’ll have more details on the changes coming in our next patch over the next few weeks.
We are always grateful for the support and feedback the community has provided along our journey and hope it continues into the future. With that said, ‘til next time, may your skies be clear, waters calm, and sails full in whichever way you roam.

Hello Dev's!

I'm Official PVE most the time and found a few bugs and things that could use a good look over.

First off I wanted to thank you all for your hard work and dedication to fixing and making this game more enjoyable to players like my self.     
P.S    love this game!

Bugs I and others in our group and not in our group have found over time.

1.   Animals moving all over the Brig and Gal's/Ships while sailing, they move so much i cant fully walk around the ship without bumping into invisible animals, and on the gal's they keep falling off
2.   When Claiming an animal with anything other then a normal saddle the animal become untradeable and
     unusable, can't remove the saddle and can't use it.
3.   Cant Whistle to cats.
4.   At this time Saddles keep vanishing some still look like they have a saddle some are fine and some just Poof away.

 Things that could use improvement:

1.   When its time to sail and you lift anchor on a nice day Fog/Rain is always triggered.
2.   When building Ships PVE Crew don't fix ceilings, wall's, sails, roofs on the ships.
3.   After adding ceilings, wall's, sails, roofs on the ships. Crew don't fix them, we need them to
      fix those items too.
4.   Wild untamed Animals wondering always get in front of me while i'm working they seam to
      want to get in the way a lot. If this is a thing please turn it off.
5.   When its time to sail and you lift anchor on a nice day Fog/Rain is always triggered. Can
      this not happen. (Its Better but still a thing)
6.   Cyclones/Twisters follow unanchored ships like its alive, would be better if they didn't and
      moved more unaware of us and we had enough time to move from them like in real life,
      you see it and we can plan ahead, like add them to the map so we can all see them ahead
      of time.
7.   Ships of the damned gold loot is so low. Can we have more gold for killing them? Right
      now they are more of an annoyance to players and are not profitable so no one wants to
      hunt them unless they need npc's or sail patterns, or are trying to lvl a ship.
8.   Can you make the shovel work to flatten terrain for build purposes?
9.   Add more content like decorations for in and out side of builds, And Dock decorations like
      small lights and rope, rope ties.
10.  Lanterns don't last very long, can you prolong the light? If we can add Oils in a slot in
      the lanterns and it keeps them on to the oil is gone would be great! or never run out?
11.  More outfits, weapon decorations to add to the existing ones more then we currently have
      at our freeports now.
12.  A large cage or small, medium, large cage to lock up animals/NPC's for sales.  Like i add
      the claimed animal to it and add a price to the cage and a note so others know the stats of
      that animal. Then when someone wants it they can buy it and the cage opens animal
      claimed to new owner and it holds the gold till i come to collect it, and refill it with an animal
      of my choice kinda like the shops now only animals.
13.  Please add so on the animals their is at tab on the spin wheel we can add allow Alliance to use on and off option.
14.  Please add so on the beds we can also open the spin wheel so we can add allow Alliance to use on and off option.
15.  May we have a Cargo box to snap to the ships to store animals in on Brigantine and Galleons.
16.  Can we have the silos feed the Mesh tables and Feeding troughs.
17.  Allow us to add Veggies from our inventory into the feeding Trough with the Arrow to cap all the Veggies already in the feeding Trough at 100, Makes sense right.
18.  Allow us to choose the amount to remove from our Munitions Storage, Right now we have to pull out ALL our cannonballs and other ammo before we can change the amount    making us over weight and then we have to put it all back in the Munitions Storage beside the amount we want to keep out for the ammo container.
19.  Allow us to choose the amount of resources to remove from the Ship Resource Box/Captions chest.
20.  PLEASE give me a way to Stop Pooping!  Should only poop when i click on Force poop not all the damn time! I'm like Hey how are you doing to a person and Out of no  place I poop then they poop.. in RL if i need to poop i push it out. try talking to people and i poop then they poop come on Im not an old fart that needs dippers here! lol What gives!
21.  Can we have fertilizer stack?
22.  Can you make the Silo so it collects the Veggies and other farmed Crops we grow? or add a building that farms the plots for us or an npc or something?
23.  Cyclones should not follow ships around like they are alive but they should act more on the
      server side not self aware of players.

You have some good suggestions but honestly, I truly doubt the Devs will read your post. They have never shown a genuine interest in anything players have to say.

Xbox connection issues worse since this update.  Consistently getting disconnected on islands, or sailing up to islands. On top of that, we then have to deal with time out loop (trying to reconnect). When will this be fixed?
