    Boosted maps

    Maybe you can summon a similar map using a cheat code on dedicated server? Try it and you'll know on live servers.

    Leaving Atlas

    My chief complaints after returning to give this game another try... 1. I build a house on an island with noone on that entire half of the island., Some guy came and posted pillars all the way around my property so I cant build. NA PVE. It was just a tiny shack on a trade route. After that I built walls. He covered ever square inch of land inside my walls. 2. My schooner turns into a submarine. It gets submerged in water all the way up to the sails. This pushes my pets and workers off and hinders travel. 3. Ship of the Damned are WAY too powerful! I don't even want to travel anymore. The devs took all the fun out of sea content! All I do is build now. Getting old. 3. I came back to my character being deleted somehow. I will never have a chance to get the powerstones because noone plays anymore. That means I'll never be able to do the new underwater content. At this time and place in the game the hydra requirement needs to be removed! 4. The Kraken and other hard requirements that require a lot of people need to be removed. Or they should make the solo version of the game (with cheats) and account wide achievement. 5. The damage wild animals do while attempting to capture them needs a massive nerf! It's ridiculous. 6. I'm shocked to see this dev team has done nothing for player retention. I think a big part of that is guild/company systems and the damage SOTD's do. Hostile players in PVE are not preventable, you'll get them no matter what. But a players ability to drop walls or obstructions inside or next to my base and boats is totally on the dev team. There needs to be an increase in proximity building to lessen griefers from ruining this game.

    What am I doing wrong?

    No. They still tame with wheat. As stated above it's a broken system. Years of Ark and now the experience we have in Atlas is useless. Billboards seem to be the most legit way to tame at the moment. I read in some other spots that this is an old problem. They've tried to fix it according to previous patch notes. It's such a major component of this game that they really need to stop everything and figure it out. Not many things are more important in regards to Atlas gameplay.

    What am I doing wrong?

    Ok, so, this is a taming pen problem. Another bug for the dev team to not address. @Nordist I'm a returning player. Before I left I had a 56 w/ most power stones and about 6 elephants. After my return I had zero characters with zero power stones and zero tames, ships, levels, points, gear, etc. I had to start from scratch again. But this time it's a million times harder. Less people playing on the "lawless" maps, which is indicative of the low population. I love that I can finally get some descent buildable land now. But I hate there's noone to play with. They messed up the land grab so bad at launch. So to answer your questions, yes. I have tamed them before and remember their sweet spot. I grow my own wheat. This has something to do with the building blocks that we make taming pens out of. It's bugged. I even lost a corpse w/ all my taming stuff and gear in them (right after posting this last night). Oh duh. I should add that I was able to tame using the billboard method (something new to me). Somehow the billboards eliminate what's causing tames not to eat from you. I still didn't tame an elephant tho. I need med kits unlocked. They woop my ass, even knowing the sweet spot. I did get one to around 55% last night tho (billboard method) (live servers).
  5. Tier 3 taming and mostly maxed out taming tree. Bolas. Wheat. Taming pen. I don't understand why I can't tame elephants. I get the prompt to feed it wheat, but nothing happens. Is it somehow glitched inside of my taming pen or something? Has anyone tried taming elephants since last patch? https://imgur.com/a/msFIZs5 https://imgur.com/a/WXTF4Dc

    Blackwood Map - Wheatgrass

    I returned to the game recently and I can't even launch the Blackwood map. I've tried single player, hosted and live. There doesn't appear to be a "normal" way to access it.
  7. Good question. At work I have a 49" curved monitor. I have not tried to run this game on it but I'm saddened to hear you're having issues.

    We Need Oil

    Like every lighthouse I see is burned out because we can't get enough oil. There are some zones where oil is abundant but in many cases it's too far away or the wiki is wrong. The Atlas wiki identifies some zones as having oil but there is none. Not even the residents of those zones have seen oil nodes of any kind. I can go 3 regions in every direction of F6 and there is not one single known oil node. The solution isn't to give fish more oil. Please don't do that, it's silly.

    Creature Designer

    I propose the following changes. 1. Cages for tames on ships. Small, Medium and Large. Low weight or no weight. Mandatory if you want to transport animals except for money, bird, chicken or other small critter. 2. Allow taming on Freeports. Put dev constructed taming bids on the beaches. 3. Reduce or eliminate all damage taken by players when attempting to tame. This has seriously hurt the entire game (as a whole). 4. New feature - bird cages with bait. Make it easier for us to tame birds. 5. Fix fishing so that it's actually useful. Rare items, that don't spoil, needed for taming certain creature. Fish A only gives X. Fish B only gives Z. 6. Incorporate the animal process into the building process. Cows are needed to pull ropes for pulleys to lift heavy objects. Cows and horses needed for farming. 7. Allow us to build something in the game that eliminates the gold cost of human AI characters on land. 8. Focus a LOT more attention on human AI's. A) Allow us to make a true pirate crew in the skill tree. B) Allow us to substantially increase their weight limit for weapons/armor and their health so that they can be used as sentries at our bases. C) Max out the human AI count per player to encourage guild recruitment. D) Completely eliminate and rebuild the guild system. Let guilds level up. Doing so gives human AI benefits and new abilities. E) Allow players that devote a significant amount of time to the game train their human AI's. Make this personal effort so valuable that guilds will seek them out. No respecs on this. F) Human AI specific armor and weapons. Weightless and multi tiered.

    Need Help Understanding Claims

    It wouldn't take a server wipe. Create a new server with the new ruleset. Test them both and see which one is best for launch.

    Need Help Understanding Claims

    The whole system needs to be rewritten.
  12. We own an entire island. I'm willing to allow a couple plots on the beach. Everything you'll need is either on the island or one island away. Only crocs and snakes. Snake pit (trap) is already on beach. Room for all three shipyards, a house and a taming pen. 15% tax + gold cost to prevent people from only building in Freeport and avoiding the tax. 100 gold per week put inside of a storage locker. You can get flotsams right near the island. Creative builders welcome but no tacky towers please. Temperature near perfect. F6.

    Are you 100 years old?

    I've been 100 since we all hit 100 (launch day folks). I refuse to step foot in Golden Age Ruins ever again.

    SODs still need balance

    Ya, this website sucks. We need a new fan site / forums. Much like EQ2flames for EQ2. This one picture bullshit is for the birds. Know what would be cool? A weekend with no hostile mobs at all. None. Imagine how productive we could be for once.
