  1. @George Catcher Fugget, at this point and with the game in this condition may as well make it a 10x event
  2. @George Catcher & @Nacona Just curious, where is that 5x event Pic from? They still think other message platforms are more important than their Official Forums? Really? Going to play the other video game thats earned my business. Sidenote, from here on I refuse to refer to them as "seasons", they're fucking WIPES because the developers can't get their shit straight. Period. I'm losing count what will the next wipe be #4 or #5?

    If I was using a translator it wouldn't be a guess..
  4. Interesting video. I figure some of ya have some downtime waiting on the next patch.. I definitely prefer small group or solo play over large groups. https://www.youtube.com/tv#/watch?v=b2l2ZxNhCSg Thoughts?

    Venturing a guess for a goof.. 1. Web site in french isn't working correctly? 2. The support ticket system isn't answering the questions posed? 3. Slow response time? 4. Fix it and maybe the old saying about breaking a few eggs to make an omelette? 5. Thank you for listening to my complaints? Is my paraphrasing close? At 20 points per did I score about 80 out of 100? Anyone?
  6. @Grayson I don't agree w everything @Chucksteak says about you but I will offer some possibilities to consider. 1. Single Player/ Co Op may provide the experience your craving, if they ever manage to get it sorted. 2. Same for private servers, once again, if they ever get the mechanics stabilized. 3. Worst case vote with your feet. I'm on hiatus myself and theres plenty of games to choose from. Final thing, I definitely flipped my shit when they pulled the "surprise-wipe-no-more-NA PvE" for season 3, so I sympathize w your frustrations. I don't understand why they don't realize the importance of catering to BOTH play styles in a ONE CHARACTER experience. Pretty simple.. Some days I wanna PvP, some days I wanna PvE and some days I don't want to log in at all. Not rocket science, unless they cut a deal that pays per customer hours played, I heard thats a thing.. Dunno. Next few months will be interesting to watch either way if one is sufficiently detached..
  7. Some advice for the devs, piggybacking off of @NewLexican From The Art of Worldly Wisdom by Baltasar Gracian (Christopher Maurer translation) #27 Better to be intensive than extensive. Perfection isn't quantity, but QUALITY. #57 Thoughtful people are safer. Do something WELL and that is quick enough... Only perfection is noticed and only success endures. #66 Take care to make things turn out well. Some people scruple more over pointing things in the right direction than in successfully reaching their goals... It is an art to set aside art when you must do so to bring things to a happy conclusion. #91 Never act unless you think it prudent to do so. ...It is dangerous to undertake something when you doubt its wisdom. it would be safer to not act at all. Prudence refuses to deal in probability: it ALWAYS walks under the midday sun of reason. #92 Transcendent wisdom. This is the first and highest rule in acting and speaking... An ounce of prudence is worth a pound of cleverness. It's more a matter of walking surely than courting vulgar applause. #136 Size up the matter. Take pulse of the business at hand. Many see the trees but not the forest, or bark up the wrong tree, speaking endlessly, reasoning uselessly, without going to the pith of the matter. They go round and round, tiring themselves and us, and never get to what is important. They waste time and patience on what it would be better to leave alone and later there is no time for what they have left. #147 Don't be inaccessible. ...The person who doesn't listen is a hopeless fool. Even the most independent of people ought to heed friendly advice, and even sovereigns are happy to learn from others... We all need a friend who feels free to scold us and give us advice... We need the faithful mirror of a confidant. If we value that mirror it will set us free from deceit. Post is getting too long. Zero clue if your listening anyway. Good luck.
  8. @ScarlettSwagger Few more tidbits... 1. The meat consumption is insane going from juvenile to adult. Can't remember if its 5 or 7 imprints, anyway, i would FILL 2 troughs with salted meat every 8 hours (12000 meat) for cub batches of ~8, still lost several batches due to starvation just by oversleeping a couple of hours. I was just hobby breeding but I'm 100% serious, 3 or more filled troughs recommended per 8 hours depending on litter size. 2. I parked my breeding females out of range with the bears also for the most part, once they're mature the food requirement isn't bad at all. 3. Can't remember if i raised the bottom floor/ campfire area EXACTLY 2 foundations but I think that's what it was. The important part is getting the campfires right below the mating/ birthing area to radiate upwards though... So basically just be aware they require ridiculous amounts of food growing from juvenile to adult. Was VERY fun though, some had ~750 HP, STAM, WT, w 200+ melee. Some of my dedicated sidekicks had 1000+HPS (all pretty much fully imprinted). Also I was just a part time breeder, fyi. Once again good luck, warned ya atleast TWICE about the food
  9. @ScarlettSwagger Details Regular Map (Maelstrom) Tundra PvE Breeding Area (Top Floor) 1. Two story (4 walls high) w vaulted ceilings. Top floor was breed area. Also I suggest building it 2-3 foundations above ground level so snakes can't glitch through the wall. Quick and dirty way is to make all inner foundations thatch and wrap it in wood. Stone IS NOT necessary. 2. One tile in from the outer wall I placed wooden doorframes on 3 sides of the 2nd floor. 3. Between the outer wall and inner perimeter doorframes I placed as many campfires as i could fit 4. I left enough room on the entry wall for a preservation bag w ice, a water barrel and large storage box for saddles and various crap. 5. Used a small gate w ramps for entry. Whole breeding area was about 8x6 tiles, maybe? Plus about 8x6 for the conga line outside. 6. I was able to place the stud in the middle w a female on each side and breed 2 at a time. As my stable of female lions grew (~20) I would line them up towards the entry in a conga line and rotate until i got to the first one impregnated. This resulted in ~2 births every 3-5 minutes to give ample sorting time. *** Very Important Bottom Floor *** 1. Raised the floor 2 foundations using foundations in the center, ceiling tiles on the edge and added half stairs. 2. Crawled around and spread ~6 campfires AROUND THE CENTER DIRECTLY UNDER the mating area. I usually only needed the center 4 or so. Leave space to crawl between to light them and refill. 3. When built correctly the campfires from the bottom floor will be ~touching the bottom of the second floor. In real life it would burn down , but, in Atlas the heat from the campfires underneath radiates safely to the 2nd floor breeding area. Few pro tips A. However much raw meat you think you'll need, triple it. B. Park Bears away from the feeding troughs or they'll eat the meat for the maturing lions. C. Lots of ice and preserving bags D. I used salted meat in the feed troughs since it lasts 8 times longer than raw. E. If your doing this for resale most buyers will want tigers for the swipe and bleed. F. Don't freak out about the hot and cold icons above the new borns, just check their HPs, usually they'll be fine when you get practice. At night the temperature drops so I would often get cold icons but they rarely lost more than 2HPs out of 35 and immediately healed when the temperature returned to normal. G. Once I had my litter sorted i drug them to the corner and usually operated w 4 1st floor campfires and ~7 2nd story fires. H. Don't forget to disable wandering, follow, actiivate ignore group whistles and set them to passive. I. Occasionally, in addition to all the aforementioned campfires, I had to use ~8 torches on a switch, placed on the doorframes, to get breeding to occur. Cold front maybe? Final thing, this system is 2+months old. Good luck.
  10. @Nacona We'll just agree to disagree then since I am 100% positive it can be done. Have a nice day.
  11. @Nacona You do realize that the PvP servers already have PvE areas right? The Freeports Also MANY other games have been able to find various ways to balance PvP and PvE on the same server for over a decade now. I play Roblox games with my kids where they manage to pull it off. It's not hard. Even on TOTAL PvP servers. The system 1 Identify the griefing scenario. 2 Fix the griefing scenario. Thats it
  12. @Captain Kuro Simple answer. In order to be a Pirate, your merry band needs to have the following roles filled -builder/ architect -accountant -crafter -patch translator -animal handler -somebody to stock troughs and refill basic supplies -Market/ Warehouse/ Farmhouse operator -ambassador THEN, if you still have free time, feel free to enjoy your Pirate adventures Good luck
  13. @Chucksteak, @Whitehawk, & @Gindorf I'm of the opinion that PvP and PvE MUST be incorporated onto the same servers for this game to be successful. Thank you everybody for your feed back. Interesting sidenote, its already incorporated, very poorly, via the Freeport. So the question really isn't IF they should do it, since they already have, but whether or not they can execute it correctly. Have a good day y'all
  14. @Chucksteak Love the post but I just wanted to clarify one thing. You ARE advocating for a map that mixes PvP and PvE, correct?
  15. @PHaRTnONu Aww yea, gettin that ass now. Shark attack motherfucker... So noone is ever given rank 10 huh? What about the rank of Admin?... How do you navigate that scenario Emperor Talks in Circles? a. Angry illogical little twerps like you were the reason I left several large companies over the 3 seasons I played. You were happy to take the bps I donated, the crops I farmed, the food I cooked, the pile of money I grinded out, but never advice. When I'd explain how to conduct a proper military amphibious landing you'd ignore the advice and fuck it up. Three times in a row. You know why? Because shit heads like you are all talk. You don't have a clue how to conduct proper reconnaissance, planning and execution. All you know how to do is swarm ships in the water and overrun soft targets. b. Why the fuck do you call anyone who disagrees with you a roleplayer? What leads the 9 synapses in your noodle to divert to that "insult"? So FUCKING what if someone IS a roleplayer? Does that make their fun less valuable than yours? I don't roleplay but I've met some fucking hilarious people over the years who can provide HOURS of entertainment with a goofy voice and some well timed quips. Grow the fuck up you narrow minded, male-Karen, man child. Snide remark making, logic lacking... I could wreck your selfish, shit for brains logic for hours. 1 Noticed that you requested a box that people can place things IN but can't take them OUT. Whats wrong? Nobody in in your "Mega" likes the admins enough to say "Heres some gold for the Company fund Cpt. Karen"? 2 Noticed you have zero sympathy for the new guy whos worried he'll grind for hours but then receive NOTHING and get booted over a disagreement. Is THAT maybe why your so worried about scuttled ships? Panzy. Guessing your going to ignore the verbal ass whoopin your receiving in Q&A 9 and just thought I'd pop by... PS @Chucksteak sorry, couldn't help it. Osama Bin Phart here dropped some verbal diarrhea in Q&A 9.
  16. @chukiki Come steal my guard dog and feed him and see what happens... Go to a circus and steal some Lions and Tigers and see what happens when ya feed them... Derp
  17. @PHaRTnONu More gibberish, except now its riddled with anger, lies, logical fallacies, typos and poor sentence construction. a. You never did explain how adjusting the food mechanic and and losing experience when you die equals "roleplaying". Please explain your "logic"... -When you put gold in your flag is that "roleplaying" in a sandbox game? -When your ship delivers and receives damage is that "roleplaying" in a pirate game"? -What about the xp penalty for being guillotined, is that "roleplaying"? -THEN HOW THE FUCK IS EATING FOOD, OR CONSEQUENCES FOR NOT EATING FOOD "ROLEPLAYING" IN A FUCKING SURVIVAL GAME? b. Regarding the redeemable certificate the "intermediary" could be someone in Freeport. (admit it, you had to look that word up didn't ya?) -Ship Vendor -Cosmetic Vendor -Anyone in Freeport -or- -It could be a drop down function from your Warehouse, since, you know, IT DEALS WITH LONG DISTANCE TRADE (something that would or could theoretically involve long distance banking).... c. Regarding bullion, I think it should be introduced as another way of gaining passive income. For example your quarry, mine and farmhouse could periodically acquire ore through its functions. We could then use a kiln and/ or forge to refine and cast it.. Understand now dimwit? Final point. Um no, every country did NOT (get that dictionary back out) exclusively deal in gold coins. Why did the Spanish mine so much Silver in South America then? They just wanted a bunch of eating utensils and necklaces? So before you start calling people an "idiot, stupid, roleplayer, imbecile, brain dead, etc" how about ya pick up a dictionary and a history book. You can even ask google EXACTLY WHAT FUCK THOSE THINGS ARE IF YOUR UNSURE Also no it wasn't LESS gibbersh, it was more. You never gave a single, simple, logical answer to any of my initial points. You name called and lied. Thank you, now, please, eat shit and get pink eye Buh bye now
  18. @PHaRTnONu 1. Explain your rebuttal to my 1st point. You response was gibberish 2. We disagree regarding tames. Have fun with your Seahorses and hats on cats. Not my thing. 3. To refute your point entirely, and reinforce @George Catchers point completely, what weighs LESS and is less of an obnoxious pain in the ass to transport? a. A ridiculous pile of weighted, one size fits all currency or b. A redeemable certificate? Regarding bullion, what form does gold take prior to being cast into a coin? Raw ore and then it get refined and eventually cast into a coin, correct?... You do realize raw gold and decorative plunder has been collected ever since gold was established as a medium of exchange for, oh I dunno, SEVERAL THOUSAND YEARS? Including the present... You wouldn't like to find some gold ore in a rock you break? How about some gold bullion in a transport ship, SotD or in a shipwreck dive? You don't think some things should have a value of less than 1 gold coin? I dunno like seeds or arrows or a beer? We should have all this other ridiculous - overcomplicated crap in the game, but, a tiered currency system isn't a good idea? Please feel free to elaborate on the positions you've taken... Have a good day
  19. @George Catcher and Atlas Development Team Piggy backing off of Georges points and offering some corroboration and alternate feedback 1 Food- I observed many people choosing to cheese the food system by either popping the brown pill or punching an animal until it killed them. The solutions are simple some have been in place for decades a. When you DIE you should LOSE EXPERIENCE. Period. Yes even in PvP, carebear bullshit. b. The the average human can survive SEVERAL weeks with zero food and MUCH longer on partial rations. Knock off the character pissing and moaning every 5 minutes for a meal then miraculously sailing FOREVER with zero hunger unless its cold c. Theres more but I'm sick of giving you ass clowns FREE UNACKNOWLOWLEDGED FEEDBACK *** Fix your shit when it ccmes to food DEVS, if you can't understand how, DM me *** 2 Tames- DEVS -Is this fucking Ark or Atlas? Make a decision. I am NOT a fan of your ENTIRE, OFF-THE-TOPIC-OF-PIRATES TAMING CLUSTERFUCK. My opinion. I'm not saying scrap it entirely, but lets just say I think you might want adjust your development priorities. *** Another one that I can help with, if your confused D........M....... Me *** 3. Devs you do realize that gold coin WAS NOT the only form of currency, right? a. Silver b. Copper c. Barter d. Authentic Letters of Deposit e. Bullion *** Once again if you need help with this fucking rocket science, , DM me *** Get your shit straight
  20. Lets see if this question gets answered-- if someone wants to re-post it on discord I would appreciate it If you intend to make this "one of the best and most unique PvP games ever", exactly how do you plan on solving the "Wolves vs Sheep" dilemma? I have heard of several vague "incentives" mentioned to encourage large companies to work with small companies, but I haven't heard of any specific details that can't be solved by a few alt accounts. Sidenote, if you want to encourage the Atlas Community, a LARGE step in that direction would be tagging whose question is being answered and who exactly is answering it. *** Bumps appreciated *** R1K
  21. @Remo I guess they're trying, very badly, to counter PvE griefing
  22. Logged in after ~7weeks off with fresh eyes and thinking back of season 3 purchasing "the ultimate pirate experience" from the xbox store. PvE. Im still level 66 and have 253 HP, otherwise, I would have died of starvation about 15 minutes in, this is at the most carebear Freeport of all, Tropics. Made some food, built a Ramshackle, crafted a smithy to check out tower info. Squeaked into a Lawless area with planks at 700 HPs due to cyclones. Parked and repaired. 160 ping and rubberbanding. Logged off.
