Alternatively, you can remove the stated item from your inventory to get a new roll from the BP. - Resource respawn should now function as they did on Lawless servers prior to v10. - 50% reduction in the enemy structure prevention radius so that you can now build closer together on Lawless Servers. v10.75 - Wild land creatures will no longer target crew, tames, or characters on ships unless they have been aggro'd - Fixed a bug where Ship of the Damned would have rapid fire - Temporarily reduced Crew Log length as it undergoes some rewrites because it would cause performance problems. v10.71 - Fixed a bug which prevented cannons from being reloaded - Tightened up server-side protection on gliders - Fixed an exploit with mortars v10.5 - Fixed Ramshackle sloops breaking when you leave freeports - Fixed a bug which prevented you from accessing newly tamed inventories unless you relogged - Fixed a bug which caused Mantrays to be unusually aggressive - Comodity trader gold cost increased v10.43 Claim flag related changes - Claim Flags now have settings which allow other companies or players to build within them, with the specified tax rate applied to them. - You are also able to define an inclusion or exclusion list to these, to only allow or exclude specific company IDs (also used by players without companies).

Your claim flags have a green icon. Claim Flags belonging to your allies that do not permit you to build, have a blue icon, or purple if they do belong to your allies and allow you to build.

From the 27th of December, through til the 2nd of January, wearing this hat whilst digging up treasure will result in double the gold. - Improved server performance by adjusting server water thread utilization - Changed declaim period (stealing enemy territory) to 30 minutes from 1.5 hours (requires they have no alive crew or players in the vicinity) - Removed requirement to be on a boat to steal someone's boat after placing the claim flag. Adjusted base value times to claim the boats to be 1 one minute to steal a dinghy, 2hrs~ to steal a raft, a couple hours to steal sloop, and so forth (levelling a ship increases the time it takes to steal that ship). - Rebalanced Skill Point requirements as originally intended, where higher tier skills cost more SP. Forced a one-time 'free' respec to use these new values. - "Low Memory" Launch Option for more reliable <= 8GB OS support. Launch the game with '-lowmemorymode' to utilize this! - Ship collision damage is now disabled on Freeport servers. - Alpha creature spawns are now disabled on Freeport and Lawless Servers. - Item yield and Gold yield from Treasure have been doubled - Significantly reduced Torch and Fire Arrow Damage - Fixed a bug which prevented resources from respawning. Please note when this update goes live, it may be a few hours until they naturally start appearing again. - Increased the damage from Dragon Fire AOE and set it to an 8-hour tame time with the token - Equilibrium Buff now gives +20% XP, -20% reduced incoming damage, +30 temperature fortitude, +10% movement speed, +20% melee damage, and takes 30 minutes to achieve rather than an hour. - Fixed a bug which prevented Bottles and Flotsams from spawning - Fixed a bug ocean and deep ocean spawners, including Mermaids, Whales, Ship of the Damned, and Squids. - NPC crew that are recruited in Freeport are now correctly assigned to your team. - Fixed Shovels and Heavy Shields so they no longer damage stone structures - All freeports now have pirate music in town - Scuttling is now tied to the demolishing tribe governance setting and Prevent Demolishing Structures in Group Management Settings - Group ranks now enabled on seating structures, so you're able to have better control of who is able to use those (Steering Wheel and Lt Podium) - PvE Claim Flag contesting now displays the enemy Claim Flag's upkeep time remaining before you can contest it, and provides a proper HUD message to that effect. v.6.7 - Further changes made to resource respawn limitations which should result in less barren islands. - Fix for claim flags on PVP servers v6.5 - Ships and rafts no longer prevent resources from respawning. Note that nearby online players & structures (not claimflag ) will prevent resources from respawning. - Fixed an issue where bed overlap protection was too strong, prevent players from respawning when they were too close to unfriendly ships or structures. - Can no longer claim unallied boats on PVE servers. PVE Territory can only be claimed if the owner has not been active around the territory within the last 3 days. - Further optimised server-side performance - Fixed a bug with the repair hammer which allowed players to repair structures even if they had a damage cooldown. It will temporarily use the resources, however, this will be fixed in our upcoming client patch. - Can now claim enemy ships in Lawless and Golden Age Ruin servers. v6.2 - Lawless Regions no longer have EXP caps. v6.1 - Further server performance optimisation - Multiple server and client crash fixes - Fixes for beds and boats not displaying on maps/spawn UI - Ships are now instant craft in shipyards - Piercing Shot cooldown increased - Improved client replication on boats so they appear more smooth when the boats are moving - Fix for character creation prompts upon server join/respawn (still investigating additional edge cases) - Alliance players should no longer contest each other's claim flags - Coldfront and Heatwave extremity reduced by 60% - Fixed an issue where the game would leave players in the encumbered state after fast travelling to another or same server. v5.9 - More performance related fixes for clients and servers - Fixed for appearing in a random location upon relog - Fix for beds and boats not being selectable/visible on the spawn UI v5.5 - Fix for players spawning in the Ocean on Lawless Regions - Fixed multiple connection issues and bugs impacting server performance - Sleeping players are no longer replicated in freeports. v5 - Major version upgrade to investigate client issues when attempting to connect to a server, as well as server performance problems. v4.3: - Fixed multiple client-side crashes v4.2: - Fixed multiple server-side crashes v4.1: - Fix for Lawless maps not being named appropriately. v4.0: - Enabled Lawless regions to be connected to at the start - Reduced timeout length on disconnections - Switch to steam sockets to resolve players being unable to connect to servers

    Claims need to be limited to 1 per character, with a maintenance cost. In addition after so many hours if the clay. Isn't built on, it should expire. We've spent 14 hours now sailing, and found no claimable islands. players are claiming everything they come across, and it's then never used. I would also recommend adding another PvP and PvE server cluster to each region worldwide. No need to pack in so many players.

    Just thought I would compile a list of Where to get what resource since I could not find any one place that listed them all and the Wiki is not yet update(plan to do some of that next). I got All these values/info from the game directory “steamapps\common\ATLAS\ShooterGame\Content\Atlas\AtlasCoreBP\HarvestComponents”. The listed Zones in that directory(which you can find below) are, NE Tropical, NW Temperate, E Temperate, W Tropical, W Tundra, Equator, Polar, C High Desert, C Low Desert, Ocean Floor. I will List zones then what you can find in them. Keep in mind free ports might be different in that zone. There is not a folder for some zones (North West Tropic, North East Temperate, et...) So I assume it might share the same values as its corresponding zone. Keep in mind these are just the HarvestComponent, what they yield might not be exactly what they are named. Many zones have more than 2 woods you can gather.

    Hey Pathfinders, We're still working on getting this fully set up, but for those of you who would like to host your own Unofficial Server, you can do so now. We've got some more information that we'd like to include with this, as well as some more setup but it'll come in time as right now our preparations are focused on getting the base game into a good state. Though we know a lot of you are quite savvy and comfortable diving into this yourselves, so we wanted to make the basics available . Here is a link to the ServerGridEditor src, as well as our wiki which covers some technical info on how to get started: https://github.com/GrapeshotGames/ServerGridEditor/wiki The latest version of the server can now be downloaded via the Steam Depo: https://steamdb.info/app/1006030/info/ and we've included an example JSON file. ServerGrid.json Over time we'll be editing the wiki to include more information, as well as cover as many of your questions as possible. We are working on getting this setup on an anonymous steam depo but for now, you are able to host an unofficial server with these files. Thanks for being so patient guys!

    It is true. We are at EU PVP server. Please help us!

    Hello !! I'm HANABI, a French player that is actually settled on the EU PvE SERVEUR "Siren's Call" so i already apologize for my approximate English (Take some fresh water on your eyes if they're burning too much). As an ADMIN of a rather well populated French Discord, i come here with a request from our PvE community and probably a lot of other people in a lot of different countries that also play on PvE servers. So this topic will have for objective to get enough upvotes to be noticed by the Devs so we're gonna make-up to one voice, but a strong one !! INFO : This topic is also translated in French for my French maties that have issues with English (God Bless our negative ability to learn other languages). Me and my crew are playing since day one, so we seen everything that happened to the game, first day was a total bloody mess for everyone but we still managed to play and get started the 24th of December, basically day two for us in Europe ... What a BLAST IT WAS !! Luck was also with us because we managed to find a little free spot on an Island in the L-10 Cell, but honestly something tilted in my mind more than anything else : Is there a limit to how much claim we can put down ? So we tried and ... It was totaly infinite. After this little test was done we broke the useless claims to let people get settle on our little ugly island (Yes, it is very ugly) and we're actually running with only 2 claims, we litteraly take no space on the island compared to other people but i'm gonna talk about that a little later in this long topic. NOW !! It's time to get to the real fun, but i'm sure a lot of people reading this post will already understand what the issue is on the PvE servers. The first problem with the actual claiming system is simple : It's totaly infinite and even a solo player can put as many flags as he wants, so if he decide to be alone on his island, he can totaly be and prevent every other player to even put a little brick or foot on HIS proprerty. What is the problem with that ? First arrived, first served, right ? RIGHT ? Before you answer, i'm gonna instead ask another question : What would happen if everyone was like this guy and took the entire island for themselves ? Not even need to respond but i'm still gonna do it !! The answer is : Only a few people will be able to play and enjoy the game while every other person will just have to fuck off and stop playing because ... No claim, no base ... No base, no ship ... No ship, no game, no nothing !! It's basically : FUCK YOU !! Now, you're just gonna disconnect and refund the game because it's impossible to play it (SO FUN !! That wasn't in the trailer tho). I'm sure you can feel the anger i'm actually expressing but it's the same rage as everyone else who experience this kind of behavior and sailed for hours !! HOURS !! HOURS !! TENTH OF HOURS because they can't find a little INCH of unclaimed territory !! That's the entire point of this topic : We're directly asking the Devs to change the claiming system for PvE servers ... It can't be the same as PvP servers, because there is no way for anyone to control the abusive claims (It's possible on PvP since you can destroy everything and take the territory for you after you won the battle, but it's not the case on PvE and will NEVER BE). The PvE experience MUST and HAVE TO be relaxing, we're not playing to be stressed, we just want to experience the beauty of the game and it's content, but it's impossible since you need LAND to be able to do it !! At this point, it would be better if the claiming system was totaly deleted from the PvE servers and replaced by the ARK territory control system (Aka the Pillars or the Foundations), because they cost ressources to be crafted and you need a lot of them to secure a big area plus you're preventing the ressources from respawing so you're losing a lot in the trade, but with the actual Claim system of ATLAS, you lose NOTHING. There is answers about this issue and here they are : 1 - Delete the actual CLAIM system and replace it with the ARK territory control system (Foundations + Pillars, basically every structures and prevent ressources from respawning in those areas). 2 - Change the number of CLAIM flags people can put down (1 per character, with modified requirements for companies and the list is down below). 1 player in company = 1 FLAG 2 players in company= 1 FLAG 3 players in company = 2 FLAGS 4 players in company = 2 FLAGS 5 players in company = 3 FLAGS But it can also change when the companies get bigger and bigger with a capped amount after a said amount of players get in the same company. So, caped at 10 people in the same company : 5 FLAGS AND THAT'S IT !! You will never be able to place more flags than that and it's really enough, i think we can even reduce the number of flags for 10 people at 4, without any problems). 3 - Get the same system as above but change the radius of a claim FLAG to 70 foundations (Yep, i tested it and a claim flag is actually 50 foundations radius so 100 foundations total diameter). Then change the number of claim flag per company and per person. For 3 people you can make it so they can only place 1 and 6 people can only put 2, it'll be MORE than enough and will prevent abusive assholes that destroy every possibility of landing on an island. ANYWAY !! That's for sure, the CLAIMING SYSTEM NEED CHANGES, and when i mean CHANGES, it's BIG CHANGES and we need them quick !! REALLY QUICK because a lot of people are really angry because they can't play the game like it was promised and they're gonna leave. I see in every cell i travel, the same messages : "Can't claim anywhere, sailed for 9 hours" "Sailed for 15hours, didn't find any claimable land, can't even put a little claim flag anywhere" Me too i sailed for 9 hours today !! I didn't find any free spot in a total of 15 CELLS !! 15 CELLS !! (Because we want to travel and go elsewhere, but it's taken everywhere else). That's the end of the English part of this topic, i'm asking to you, the DEVS ... I know you work hard and god !! I love your work, you're just crazy dudes, but you need to change that or the ship will sink ... And it will sink rapidly if nothing is done. PS : There is a screen shared by one of my maties, this island is controled by only ... 4 PEOPLE !! 4 PEOPLE IN AN ISLAND THAT BIG !! HOW CAN YOU EVEN ALLOW THAT ? TIME FOR THE FRENCH PART OF THE TOPIC !! Bonjour à tous !! Je suis HANABI (Ou Skayla pour ceux qui se trouvent sur le Discord), un joueur français actuellement installé sur le serveur PVE Officiel "Siren's Call" ... Je m'excuse d'avance pour mon Anglais approximatif (Si vos yeux brûlent, prenez un peu d'eau fraîche pour les refroidir). En temps qu'administrateur secondaire d'un serveur Discord plutôt bien peuplé, je viens de la part d'une grande majorité de notre communauté et probablement de beaucoup d'autres personnes qui ne feront pas entendre leur voix, ainsi que ceux qui jouent eux aussi sur les deux serveurs PVE Officiels existants. Le but de ce topic est d'être remarqué par les développeurs, nous ferrons donc une seule voix, mais puissante !! INFORMATION : Ce topic est également traduit en Français pour les personnes de mon pays ayant du mal avec les langues étrangères (Que dieu bénisse notre capacité négative à apprendre des langues étrangères). Moi et mon équipage jouons depuis la sortie du jeu, nous avons vu absolument tout ce qu'ATLAS a déjà traversé pendant les derniers et bon dieu !! Le premier jour était une horreur sanglante sans nom, cependant nous avons quand même réussi à jouer 24 Décembre, autrement dit le deuxième jour pour nous en Europe. ET QUEL BONHEUR CELA FUT !! La chance était également de notre côté car nous avons réussi à nous trouver un petit coin sympas sur une île en L-10, mais honnêtement quelque chose titillait mon esprit bien plus qu'autre chose : Est-ce qu'il existe une limite au nombre de CLAIM que nous pouvons poser et nous avons essayer ... C'était totalement infini et sans limite. Après ce test, nous avons supprimé les CLAIMS inutiles afin de laisser la place pour d'autres joueurs sur notre affreuse île, il ne nous reste que deux drapeaux et nous ne prenons actuellement que très peu de place sur notre île par rapport aux autres joueurs qui s'y trouvent, or nous parlerons de ça un peu plus tard dans ce sujet. MAINTENANT !! C'est l'heure de s'amuser un peu et je pense que beaucoup de personnes qui auront lu ce topic jusqu'ici auront déjà comprit où je veux en venir et le problème qui existe actuellement sur les serveurs PvE. Le premier problème vient de la base elle-même du système qui fait que l'on peux poser des drapeaux de claim à l'infini et ce même en étant un joueur totalement solo, rien n'empêche ce même joueur, ni qui que ce soit de poser des drapeau sur une île entière afin d'empêcher qui que ce soit de venir poser ne serait-ce qu'une brique ou un pied dessus ... L'île devient SA PROPRIÉTÉ jusqu'à ce qu'il en décide autrement. Du coup ... Quel est le problème avec ça ? Premier arrivé, premier servit, n'est-ce pas ? N'EST-CE PAS ? Avant même que vous ne répondiez, je préfère poser une nouvelle question : Qu'est-ce qui arriverait si tout le monde faisait comme ce joueur et prenait le contrôle de toutes les îles pour eux-même afin d'être tout seul ? Pas la peine de répondre à une question aussi stupide et inutile, cependant je compte bien le faire. La réponse est donc : Seulement une poignée de joueurs seront à même de pouvoir jouer pendant que tous les autres pourront aller se faire foutre et arrêter de jouer parce que ... Pas de claim, pas de base ... Pas de base, pas de bateau ... Pas de bateau, pas de jeu !! RIEN DU TOUT !! C'est basiquement, on t'encule et maintenant tu vas devoir te déconnecter puis refund le jeu parce que c'est impossible d'y jouer (TROP COOL !! C'était pas dans le trailer par contre). Je suis sûr que c'est possible de ressentir la colère que j'exprime actuellement, mais c'est la même que toutes les personnes qui doivent faire face à ce genre de comportement dégueulasse et qui pourtant on mit les voiles pendant des heures !! DES HEURES !! DE VRAIES HEURES !! DES DIZAINES PUTAIN D'HEURES parce qu'ils étaient pas en mesure de trouver UN SEUL millimètre de terre qui n'avait pas déjà été prit par quelqu'un. C'est donc l’entièreté et l’objectif de ce post : Nous demandons directement aux développeurs de changer le système de CLAIM pour les serveurs PvE ... Le système ne peux pas être le même que pour les serveurs PvP car il n'y a absolument aucun moyen de contrôler les CLAIM abusifs dans l'état actuel (C'est possible en PvP vu que c'est possible de tout détruire et de prendre le territoire après avoir remporter la bataille, cependant ça n'arrivera pas sur un serveur PvE et ça ne pourra JAMAIS). L’expérience PvE DOIT et DEVRA être relaxante, nous ne jouons pas pour êtres stressés ou mit sous pression, nous voulons juste profiter de la beauté du jeu et de son contenu, cependant c'est impossible dans l'état actuel vu qu'il nous faut un CLAIM dans tous les cas pour que ce soit possible. A ce point-là, ce serait carrément mieux de supprimer le système de drapeau actuel du jeu et de le remplacer par le système de contrôle de territoire de ARK (Aka les Piliers et Fondations pour les intimes), tout simplement parce que cela coûte des ressources pour les crafter et il en faut des quantités énormes pour sécuriser une grande zone, sans évidemment parler du fait que ça empêche toutes les ressources environnantes de réapparaître ... Les pertes sont énormes pour celui qui fait le choix de prendre un gros territoire, cependant cette perte est inexistante avec le système actuel d'ATLAS, il n'y a rien à perdre et tout à y gagner. Il existe des solutions pour régler ce problème, au moins temporairement en attendant de trouver d'autres idées définitives : 1 - Supprimer le système de CLAIM actuel et le remplacer par le système de territoire de ARK (Fondations + Piliers, basiquement toutes les structures et le blocage du respawn des ressources environnants les zones bâties). 2 - Changer le nombre de drapeau que les joueurs peuvent déposer (1 par personnage, avec des prérequis modifiés pour les compagnies, à voir la liste en-dessous) 1 joueur dans une compagnie : 1 DRAPEAU 2 joueurs dans une compagnie : 1 DRAPEAUX 3 joueurs dans une compagnie : 2 DRAPEAUX 4 joueurs dans une compagnie : 2 DRAPEAUX 5 joueurs dans une compagnie : 3 DRAPEAUX Cependant cela peux aussi changer si les compagnies deviennent de plus en plus grande avec un nombre de drapeaux maximum et impossible à dépasser à partir d'un certain nombre de joueurs dans la compagnie. Avec un nombre de drapeau maximum à partir de dix personnes dans la compagnie, celui-ci serait de cinq drapeaux et c'est tout !! Il ne serait jamais plus possible de poser d'autres drapeaux car c'est largement suffisant !! Je pense même qu'il serait possible de réduire le nombre de drapeaux à 4 pour un groupe de dix, il y aurait bien assez d'espace et ce sans aucun problèmes). 3 - Récupérer le même système que celui du dessus, mais augmenter le rayon de CLAIM des drapeaux ) 70 fondations (Ouais, j'ai fait des essais et le rayon est de 50 fondations donc 100 fondations de diamètre au total). Cela pourrait également changer le nombre de drapeaux par groupe et par personne si le système était repenser de cette manière. Pour trois personnages, il pourrait par exemple n'être possible que de placer un seul drapeau, pour six personnes, il pourrait être possible d'en poser deux et ce serait bien suffisant pour éviter que des enfoirés abusent du système actuellement en possibles et qui empêche qui que ce soit de s'installer sur la moindre île. DANS TOUS LES CAS !! Le système de CLAIM doit subir des changements et quand je parle de changements, ce sont de GROS changements !! Ils doivent également être fait rapidement car beaucoup de gens sont vraiment agacés de ne pas pouvoir jouer au jeu tel qu'il nous a été vendu, et ils finiront par abandonner. A chaque fois que je traverse une nouvelle cellule, je vois toujours les mêmes messages : "Je peux rien CLAIM, j'ai voyager pendant 9 heures" "Je voyage depuis 15 heures, pas trouver un seul bout qui pouvait être CLAIM, impossible de poser nul part" Et moi aussi ... J'ai voyager pendant 9 heures aujourd'hui sur mon radeau, j'ai pas trouvé un seul SPOT qui n'était pas prit sur plus de 15 cellules différentes !! ' (Parce qu'évidemment, nous avons envie de déménager). Ce sera la fin de la partie française du topic, cependant je vous demande personnellement les développeurs ... Je sais que vous travaillez comme des fous et bon dieu !! J'aime votre boulot, vous êtes fous, cependant vous devez faire ce changement ou le navire va couler ... Et il va couler rapidement si rien n'est fait. Je joins un beau screen offert par l'un de mes compagnons de jeu afin de contempler l'horreur des choses telles qu'elles sont. Ces drapeaux appartiennent à seulement quatre personnes, une île entière gaspillée par de gros enfoirés totalement égoïstes, JUSTE QUATRE PERSONNES POUR UNE ÎLE AUSSI GRANDE ?? Comment vous pouvez tolérer ce genre de conneries ? That's the end of my topic, i just wanna to get this game as good as possible and it can become ULTRA SUPER MEGA good, trust me Devs, your game can rock so much if you listen to us, so do it ... We, player know more than anyone what we want and what can be done for the best of this game. So !! You (Readers and Members of the forum) can support this topic and send the links to everyone, we need to make the PvE servers change ... NOW !! Or it'll be too late !! THUMBS UP THE TOPIC !! Talk with me, talk with everyone about that and let's change the entire world for the better

    So I have seen a lot of false information lately on the forums about how taming works and how the systems are broken and just a lot of complaints about how it works as a whole. While I don't like all the aspects of it I have tamed a few animals without too many problems and will explain how I did so to help you. So for the first thing about taming you have to unlock the beastmastery tree and then the taming skill in order to tame. There is three levels to the skill and certain creatures require certain levels. For instance a bunny or chicken is Taming 1 and a wolf is Taming 2. Alright so now you've got the skill and are ready to tame something but how do you go about doing it? Well there is two different kinds of Taming that work different and require different things from the user. These two methods are passive taming, and Bola taming. Passive taming just like in Ark is pretty damn easy. You place the item required for taming in the last inventory slot of your hotbar and walk up to the animal with the required taming skill and just press e. It'll now display a taming complete bar under the ui for the creature as well as some other stats. It'll also trigger a cool down in which you must wait before feeding the animal the item again. Do this however many times is required and you will tame the creature. Examples of passive tames I can think of are : Bunnies, Chickens, Female Cows, and the little monkeys. Bola taming is the other type of taming and this one has the most complaints/misinformation about it. Many people don't understand how this system works and I see people post on the forums saying it's broken etc etc. That's not true so please stop saying it. Now Bola taming itself is hard. Much harder than any taming I did in Ark and requires a lot of patience and typically a lot of death. My recommendation is to create a taming pen in which you lure the animal into and close a gate behind so it cannot escape. The walls should have window holes which can be built by going to place a wall and pressing t to change type of wall. Once you have got the animal in the pen to tame it you must lower it's health to the point where it is "entrapable" via the Bola. Typically it's when the animal is in the orange health of it's health bar. You can double check by selecting the Bola from your hotbar and aiming at the creature. It'll display text in green that says "Entrapable" if you can Bola the creature. Once you are able to you hold down left click to spin the Bola and let go when you want to throw it at said animal. (If you built a taming pen you can throw it through the window at the animal) Alright so now you have got the Bola on the animal and it's on the ground and a timer that says "Bola escape in: xxx" this indicates when the animal will break out of it's Bola and recover roughly half of it's health. While the animal is bola'd you must walk up to it and with the item required to tame in your last hotbar press e just like passive taming. Things to note on this however is that unlike passive taming the animal will fight back. He will bite at you and knock you back if you get too close to the head. The easiest way to avoid this is to go behind its head where it can't attack you. Now once you feed it once it'll trigger the same stuff as passive tame with the ui and the cool down. Continue to feed it and eventually it'll escape the Bola. Once it escapes you must damage it to "Entrapable" range again and Bola it once more and rinse and repeat. Some examples of animals that require this method are: Wolves, Bears, Lions and Bulls. For the current list of animals I know how to tame or have tamed it is as follows. If you guys discover more animals and how to tame them or want me to explain further please ask. I will attempt to keep this list updated. Current tameable animals we know of: Rabbit - passive tame with carrots Cow - passive tame with rushes Bull - Bola tame with rushes Wolf - Bola tame with Bone Lion - Bola tame with Prime meat Tiny monkey - Passive tame with berries Chicken - Passive tame with Berries Pig - Passive tame with Maize Horse - Bola tame with Sugar Cane Bear - Bola tame with Honey

    Have you created an accordian but don't have the ability to play it? Check out my Autohotkey song macro tool: http://delayatlas.com/songmaker All you have to do is install Autohotkey, create your song, copy the text to a text editor and save the text with the .ahk extension like "mysong.ahk". Double click the file and press F12 or whatever toggle key you chose, and your character will start playing the song! The toggle key will pause/unpause the script. For example, this is the Lazytown You Are a Pirate song: r--r--gdsa--rrrrdrgiii--rrrrdrgdsa--a--g-hg-r---

    Tutorial: Tattoo's, Flags, and You! Hey everyone, After seeing the great work by u/Mijeman from this thread and seeing the comment from u/BurlyusMaximus, I felt like I needed to deep dive into the mechanics of being able to upload artwork. (Not everyone is as talented as Mijeman, I mean just look at this.) I've done a lot of customized content for APB (All Points Bulletin), POTBS (Pirates of the Burning Sea), just to name a few... and I'm looking forward to bringing more creations to Atlas as we move through early access and release! Now please forgive the roughness of this guide and it's images. I really just wanted to put this together so the community had a better idea on how to bring in images to customize their characters, companies, and ships. Please let me know if anything is unclear or if there are questions. Requirements outside of Atlas: ARKpnt Editor (Version 1.23 updated June 8, 2018) can be found here and on this thread, Photoshop/GIMP/Image editing software Character template which I made can be found here: Template 1 and Template 2 Character Template: So this is a rough mockup I made today. It was a little difficult as anytime I started adding a ton of color the game would disconnect me, I would come back and lost all my progress as well as my dyes. As you can tell it's not really complete, so hopefully we can get this fully fleshed out later. Alright, let's get to it! Step 1: Create a paintbrush. You'll need the following materials: 1 Hide 20 Thatch 1 Wood Step 2: Create some dye. I recommend just doing one color initially to set up your templates, then once you get the hang of things you can go nuts with color. Dye generally requires berries and a fully filled waterskin (100 units). Be sure to have a rain barrel, open the inventory slots of the barrel, place the skin into it, and it will fill (as long as the actual barrel has water available). Each 100% waterskin will yield 5 dyes of your chosen color. Step 3: Create your base file If you're going to make a tattoo, you'll need to equip the paintbrush and right click. This will open the bodypaint/tattoo window. Be sure you click 'Tattoo' at the bottom to change over. Go ahead and drag the dye over onto the paintbrush to apply the paint. Once the bar is filled you can then select the brush and start painting on your character. (Remember you don't have to waste a ton of paint or be fancy, we're just doing this so we can save over it.) Once that is complete, choose the 'Save Paint' button at the top. The game will then prompt you to enter in a name, go ahead and do that now and jot it down. If you're going to make a flag, you'll need to equip the paintbrush and left click your claim flag. It's a similar process so just follow along. Step 4: Find your file and prepare it in ARKpnt Remember the name you jotted down? No? Guess you'll have to go back and see what you called it... do you have it now? Awesome! You'll find these files in a folder similar to this path: Steam\SteamApps\common\ATLAS\ShooterGame\Saved\MyPaintings Go ahead and fire up ARKpnt Editor and click on 'Load ARKpnt file' Load your basic .pnt file to establish the dimensions. This will be helpful when you go to re-upload the file. Step 5: Open the character template in your image editing software I apologize that it's so rough, but you can use this as your base for placement locations on your character. Be sure to take the image you want to use and overlay it where you want it to appear. Once you have your placement set, be sure to hide any other layers besides the tattoo you wish to use. Step 6: Convert the .png file to a .pnt file Go back into ARKpnt Editor and click on 'Load Image'. You'll now be using this program to open your .png file that you edited with your tattoo. Be sure to click 'Yes' when it asks you if you want it to reduce the colors (in the few tests I've ran, items just show better when this option is selected.) You should now see a large grey box and your tattoo! Let's go ahead and now click on 'Save as ARKpnt file'. You'll be using the program to SAVE OVER your base file that we quickly made in-game. Be sure you say that you're okay with saving over the file. Step 7: Get back ingame and apply your new tattoo! Go back into Atlas, use the paintbrush on yourself, and now click on the left icon to open the paint file. It should still retain the old name you gave it, but it should now allow you to apply the new design! Be careful, if you added tons of color and fancy stuff- it's going to eat up a LOT of dye. This is why I suggested starting out with something basic/easy. The game will automatically apply the new design, use up your dye, and you'll be sailing the seas in style from now on! I hope this makes sense. I'm available on here and reddit under Din_Narcotic if you have questions or if I can be of any assistance. I hope this helps people out!

    1st off, who thought it was ok to make claims of a 40k man server; have a huge twitch turnout in anticipation, and think 6-8, 150 player starter zones was ok. Seriously? Your solution to take up 1/3 of the map with additional starter zones was equally as terrible; 1/3 of a way to small map for even the current player base is now filled with foundations and boat docks. 1/3 of the map wasted where people can't even build; every Island I've been to is a complete circle of red claims. Every lawless starter area is a complete circle of shipyards and foundations. Why didn't you just make instanced starter areas? No one needs to go back, and why do you need a shipyard for a raft? Who in the history of rafts ever used a shipyard to build one? no need for a shipyard = people being able to leave an island without the need to find a suitable place to toss down a shipyard and alleviates all the useless shipyard spam or at the very least doesn't require you to find a spot to build on a completely claimed island. So many Islands without key resources needed to survive, and I'm not even talking about all the islands that are just bugged and don't respawn. Every Island or at least server should have wood, thatch, metal (even if only a little), water, fiber, stone, flint, and food, period; if not it's basically unlivable. If it doesn't have those basics it's damn near impossible to live there ( are you expected to sail to a tropical region for fiber and berries everyday if you want to make the snow your home? If it's basically unlivable then your taking away useful real estate from a map cluster that is already to small for the number of people playing ( with it being on the top and the bottom of the map your wasting a lot of real estate). Unless, you have at a minimum the basics needed for survival. I can live with bugs, server down time, delays, and many other mishaps that occur during early access, but poor communication and the sheer lack of common sense on display here; makes me think you all could use my services. I have high hopes for this game, but for now until some of these game breaking decisions are touched up and some more servers sprout up I must bid you adieu. Keep working at it, I got faith in you. Good Luck!

    It sucked to be base wiped in ARK, but as much as that sucked, most people were not emotionally attacked to their Square, ugly base. And, it wasn't really hard to have a new base. These ships are NOT square, ugly bases. They are beautiful sailing ships. The phrase, Romance with the Sea, comes to mind. So how do you fix this in a PvP game? Here are some suggestions. 1. Your ship has an amazing buff when near the shore of your home island. This should not be a guess...you should see an icon denoting that you are buffed. This buff should be such that people will not randomly blow up your ship...just because it's there. Too costly. If this is not done, Zerg Companies will just go out on patrol at night, while you are offline, and blow up ships they come across. This will not sit well with most people. Call this mechanic, "Safe Harbor." This should apply to ships being build in a shipyard also, and maybe even be buffed even more to help reduce the times you end up frustrated by your ship being destroyed before it even sails. 2. Have a point system for lawful/unlawful reputation. If you attack somebody, the meter goes toward unlawful. One raid would not make you an outlaw. The idea would be to slow this down so that it isn't constant PvP, just for the sake of PvP. Also, the meter can be affected by "lawful" actions. Too many unlawful actions in a short period of time gets your Company labeled as an Outlaw. Now, a "Royal Navy," comes after you. Reward flyers would also be posted, listing the location of the outlaw company's facilities...not ships. Destroying their claim and buildings would net a large profit. A profit large enough to entice large alliances to carry it out. So this would make Company's think before acting. Yes, you could raid. Yes, you could pirate, but not constantly. Thus, even Mega Companies would only want to raid as much as a small tribe. It creates repercussions for being bullies, just because you are big enough to do so. 3. Get rid of the decay at Freeports. We don't need an incentive to go explore. We DO need a safe harbor to anchor at, when our claim is stolen, and we temporarily have no safe place to anchor. Instead, charge a port fee. This is realistic, as this is actually done in real life. Call it a port tax. You have to pay it in advance, with no limit for how far in advance you want to pay. Allow the selling of resources to get the gold to pay. The reason for no limit is that somebody may lose their base, but be heading out on a vacation for two weeks. An arbitrary 3 day limit would screw them. It's not necessary. People WANT to create their own base. They don't need an incentive to do so. We came here for the sailing, and exploring. Not the taming, fighting lions, etc... We WANT to sail our ships. 4. Rethink the skill tree. Don't make me choose between having combat skills, and taming skills, and ship building skills, etc... I play a game to have fun, not do a job. I do not want an ATLAS job. One day, taming a wolf will sound fun to me. Another day, building a ship will. Another day, building on the base will sound fun. Etc... Every time one of those sound fun to me, and I can't, it will create frustration. We don't play games to be frustrated. We play to be challenged, and for fun...not to be restricted. By the end, you should have at a minimum, you should have 90% of all skills unlocked. Stop with the tangled web also. Make them linear. That is not boring, that is fun because we don't get angry when we have to spend points on crap we don't want, in order to get to the one skill we do want. The current tree is not interesting, it's an abomination. Unrestricting the tree will help us get back on the sea faster, when we do lose our ship. Making the game noob friendly is not achieved by slowing progression. New companies can compete better, when they can quickly get to the same level as the established Companies. 5. Insurance. Allow for an insurance system, to replace large ships that were destroyed. If a lot of the suggestions above are implemented, this would not be as necessary, but if getting back into a ship is a slow painful process, this will save the game. People want to sail ships, not repeatedly build them, over and over. It should not be super expensive, and this could also be used as an incentive not to do too much needless PvP, as it could be made such that your lawful/unlawful rating could affect how much you have to pay for insurance. 6. Offline Raid Protection. This was wildly popular on ARK unofficial servers. 7. Time to build a ship should be in line with how easy it is to lose it. If you want ships to go down fast and often, then make it such that ships can be built fast, and often. Kind of only makes sense. Ships can't go down fast and often, if they aren't being built fast and often. 8. Ships of the Damned should be a rare encounter. Very rare. They are way too OP, since they do not suffer a speed loss when going into the wind. To make them more interesting, however, drastically reduce their aggro range...very reduced, but the longer you are in sight of it, the more the aggro range increases. Thus, when you see one, you want to instantly flee in the opposite direction. So when you see one, you say, "Oh crap, let's get out of here before it spots us." 9. Give a real incentive, and mechanic, for trading. If left up to the community to do on their own, it won't happen. There must be a mechanic, and incentive for it to happen. 10. Create a much more robust permissions system. - Captain - Owner - Officer - Admin - Experienced Deckhand - Deckhand - Recruit Allow us to decide how much trust we want to put in each level. We do not want a Recruit, Deckhand or Experienced Deckhand, to be able to move the ship, for instance. Only an Officer or above should be able to name the ship. Remember the fiasco we had with the new recruit, who named the ship something offensive.

    So in other words you're an ass hole for abusing glitches to fuck people over? I think you deserve what happened to you.

    I cant not figure your strat for this game but claiming zone flag systeme is realy bad , why you give to the player the possibility to install multiple flag , after some time the new player can not get any spot in game , for this moment i see island whit 100 % claiming zone by 1 players so its realy bad. Claiming zone not suppose the desable the resourse respown , at this time on my A12 island on PVE NA i cant find any metal nod only because 70% of this island is claiming by player . The best way you can setup the PVE Server is to give player only 1 claiming flag , so if you have groupe of 5 you can claim 5 spot on the same crew , this is perfect. Other ting remove the claiming spot desable respawn , structure can desable spawn this is ok but flag is not good way to setup pve server. Sorry for my bad english but but i try to give you a good way to fix this big mistake tkx
