    WIND FIX — ALTERNATING WIND DIRECTIONS

    This is correct. The wind is a repeating cycle. Strong wind blowing north starts to slow as it gets nearer to east. Once passing east it picks up speed as it gets nearer to south. Strong wind blowing south starts to slow as it gets nearer to west. Once passing west it picks up speed as it gets nearer to north. Storms over-ride the wind cycle. And yes, sometimes you don't want to spend your gaming time... getting there.

    Can not agro or kill Whales

    This is about right... just when it turns away or submerges, go back to it. Range control is key. Close but not too close. Stay in bolt range but out of its range. I used a schooner solo with 6 crew and 4 billistas. Dive suit to loot.

    Dealing with land squatters?

    I wonder if this would fix your problem. I've never bothered with the capping thing. There may be other issues I'm not aware of. Have someone leave your company. Allow them to cap your island. Cap it back. Destroy all problem objects over the next 24 hours. Invite your buddy back to your company.

    Making a Dock question.

    Just start building your dock from the shore outward. Every 3 or so ceilings/floor plates, use pillars from the ceilings downward until you hit the seabed for support. Once you add a pillar support it will let you add you next few ceilings, repeat, repeat. It can be a bit tricky to snap them in place as you are swimming.

    Let's talk about this wind

    Carry a turd in your pocket. It's a 10 second reset to full. If you forgot that, swim to the bottom, it's a quick reset also. Stop, look around to make sure it's clear, drop all your gear, die, spawn to your boat bed. Return to your long slow sailing time sink with a full stomach.

    I think this was one of many suggestions last year.

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    It's well understood in the gaming world that developers want their content to last but you can only extent the length of that content to a point equal to its entertainment value. Try to extend it past that point and people get bored, then move on. Yes, making sailing more entertaining would help. They still need to take into account that many just don't have the time and don't want to waste what gaming time they have, on a long trip. This leaves you boxed in without the content only that trip offers or taking that long trip you really don't want to take. Just as with the XP nerf for killing land animals. It's become unrewarding and you can't level by it. They want you to play the way they want you to, so they made other ways less rewarding. I question the logic of it. I've seen my Atlas time drop by 2/3.

    Crashing!!!!! All the time

    Have you updated all your drivers? Cleaned up your startup? Have you tested with lower game settings/ reset to default? Is this a game crash or a PC fatal error? Did you check your ram and drive for errors? How long since a clean windows reload? Do you use this pc to surf adult sites?

    Offline protection

    This is the reason many play on pve servers. I understand the off-lining is game play for some but I don't see this as something I'd enjoy. Fighting is fighting and all good but off-lining someone's efforts away while they sleep? I'll pass. From a development point of view I'd look at building in some form of save haven areas. Maybe every 3rd lawless zone. Areas not so interesting to play but a safe place to park over night. Or a ship pack up/unpack system. Log in three days later, go to your shipyard npc... and say I'm back, rez my ship. Not suggesting that for large fleets but for the solo guy or small group. Even EVE has stations you can park in while not playing where your ship is 99.9% safe.

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    I was reading all this about it's a pirate game and it just hit me... I've been here since day one (on my pve server) and I can't recall ever seeing a pirate. Are we calling the SOD pirates? Yes I did hear something about the new pirate camps. Maybe I should go check them out when I get enough time to sail that far. edit: I don't think that was Boomer's quote. I think I quoted the person he was quoting.

    opinions Your Ideas For Atlas!

    Revisit the XP scheme and loot tables.
  12. Agreed, the key problems here are decision making and priorities. Everything else stems from that. It's really a shame. This game has great art work and a great theme. I would not say it's the dev team. A life time in management tells me, when a project is going south, it's always the top person running it.
  13. It's by no mean perfect but also not hard to work around this. I have 3 currently. You could tame one today if you wanted. There has been 100's of posts of how to tame one and he is not doing it from the correct side. True, as he is pointing how it shows a feed option where it may not feed. Still, walk to the other side, between its legs and it works. I think the OP is making a bigger point.

    Why are whales not 2x?

    IMO the XP and loot tables are a mess in Atlas. Example: Killing animals on land is now not even worth the time for the XP you get (over lvl 40) but you can go clear your traps and need to discard 1000 units of meat.

    Shipwreck treasure quality

    I can't tell you how the higher level ones spawn but I can tell you I found a 16 on the bottom of the 15 line.
