Good Afternoon @Jatheish,
I am taking this time to write you in hopes you read it. I have spent a lot of time on the discord helping people with atlas, so much so that I am ranked number 10 on discord. So I hope this buys me at least 5 mins to read this message/post.
First off I do have to say that the 2 games you guy have put out are really awesome games. Up until this point have really enjoyed both very very much.
Little bit of my background,
My brother and I now live on other sides of the country we play games together to stay connected. Ark and Atlas have been amazing for us as both fitted our playstyle and we love them both. We bought and played both Ark and Atlas, we were on servers from day 1. In Ark between us we are pushing over 6,000 hours.
Heres where we talk about the problem.
Between my brother and I we are pushing 600 hours in Atlas. As a 2 man tribe we have become a big trade selling animals across a lot of servers. We build all 4 ships (in order) Sloop>Schooner>Brig>Gally. As a two man team this was NOT easy. Took almost all of the 600 hours to get there.
Last night after I logged of and before I could log back in the next moring. Several of our ships were sunk on the NA-PVE server, 2 brigs, 1 sloop and 1 gally. Who and Why are beyond the point. We don’t know there are several griefer tribe on the island/server we live on.
What I’m here to say is that this problem can be solved with one of 3 choice. I will also say I’m not the first person that this has happened to and won’t be the last unless you take action.
The options are very simple.
1. Remove ship damage from overweight. Until a more permanent solution can be found.
As in ark, When a raft is over-weight it can not move, make this the normal for PVE servers.
2. When a player reaches his max weight, He should NOT be able to keep walking. As in ark he should be stuck in one spot.
3. When you pick up a body with 20,000 weight you should NOT be able to walk like your holding a 30lbs body only. Again this was corrected in ark.
Any one of these three corrects can solve this problem and eliminate the ability if players to grief PVE players.
