  1. Unlike "RL" Atlas Pvp servers, everyone is a Pirate.. With out civilians and other sorts to prey on.. you end up with just Company wars and other "pirate base" plundering.. That, should be what makes it feel "unrealistic" to you, over bears being ridden (as above, they were used by some to haul things). Everyone being a pirate works for smaller games, where you log in do some quick rounds and log out again.. mini game style.. In a game like Atlas, it doesn't feel right, Players really need other options, imo.. port towns that can be sieged and stuff like that. but, where the game goes, is up to Grapeshot, it is their game and vision of what they want out of a game.
  2. Pirates were people first, pirates as a "job" or how they made their living, to survive and rarely got rich from it. Large companies who have laborers and captains(people to go out on ships to raid.. others at base to farm) play the game in the most realistic way But, you really don't want realism, do you? Don't think any of us do.. What we want is "realism when it fits my argument on something I do or don't like".
  3. NPC on ships, I typically keep them ALL on passive and Set the cannons/swivels and all to the type of target I want. After you get on the helm you if you look down, There will be several groups that can be toggled to attack/stand down, if any of them are not showing the hand icon, they are still toggled to attack. How it works on console, I have no idea pc, if you put cannons on the back of your ship, it activates a new -group icon (back) group- or what not.. Accidental fire happens often if a player pulls into port and one of the groups is still active to fire on its set targets If your Npc are not on passive they can hop off the cannons and go attack something (not always a good thing) NPC right now seem to serve to fire your stuff for you, not so great at hand to hand combat) You can set your swivel ship protection guys to attack at short/med range for use in Pvp for instance to shoot at people trying to get on your ship and have all the cannon guys on stand down (so you don't waste all the cannon balls on trash) While on helm, I don't rely on cannon npc auto shooting, I direct them to the target with my helm controls. Gets some getting use to and practice but, once you learn it, it goes pretty quickly.
  4. If you don't end up with amazingly funny or totally absurd moments of wtf in Atlas, you are doing it wrong From things you and your mates come up with or through interaction with random others who are themselves, coming up with them in this huge sandbox playground. Even players who had it real rough at the beginning of the year and may not be playing now, take some stories along with them that can have you floored in laughter for many reasons. Glad you are enjoying yourself
  5. tarot, murdering people, pretending and playing with demons and undead and ships that have been damned, ghost ships and other fantasy stuff.. ya think if a person had problems with one of those for the reasons Op said, they prolly would have problems with all over it and not be playing a game with it in the first place. Dunno.. What triggers some may not even phase others, cant please everyone.
  6. Yeah, for land, they are mainly only for base defense -placed on cannons/swivels and puckles.. and the elevator thing as well. So, don't expect to run out and hire a bunch of them to do all the farming for you atm. heh
  7. My daily sessions go, depending on what happens.. like, the other day, had a good day then I went and slammed my sloop against a rock and it sank next to my temp lil base.. so, I unloaded my suff, secured it and called it a day knowing that my next log in was going to be hitting up nearby freeport for a new one or farming for an upgrade schooner instead. No stress, just part of the game.. lol Not in any "hurry" to get to the top, enjoy the adventure it takes to get there.
  8. I really like how this game plan here is lined up … Yea, def don't live in fear if dying and loosing things along the way.. it is not just a maybe but a certain that you will lol, so might as well just go for it
  9. Keep in mind that Solo players will not be able to do everything that needs to be done right off the bat.. when In large groups.. 1 can focus on the weapons. one on taming for bears.. one for getting to stone for building bases right away and another for ship building asap.. the rest just farm the resources for a quick start to a large company... IF there is only you and or a friend.. got to take it a bit more slow.. even them maybe decide who is going to be your ship builder early on and who the tamer or base builder.. EArly levels that is once you get up in levels you should slowly be able to fill out the other trees enough to do everything.
  10. Animals can breed, people can not. When you hit uh.. think 90yrs?? you need to find the fountain of youth if you want to be young again.
  11. Yup, pigs still poop a lot and they have a command on their action wheel that tells them to poop even but, don't find that I usually have to use it since.. they poop a ton, naturally. lol
  12. On Singleplayer you don't need to claim an island, the world is your playground, do what you like.. On official, only 1 person/group can claim an island, to do so, they place the company flag down and wait for it to raise up.. to place a flag down they need enough points for any specific island (larger ones or ones close to a powerstone grid cost more points) the higher the point value the more it is going to cost in gold.. for the initial claim as well as daily upkeep in payments. Lawless islands: No one can claim, anyone can build. freeport grid islands: no one can claim or build on. If an island is claimed by another group ask them if it is ok to build somewhere on the island many do not mind as long as you keep your footprint small enough as to not disrupt resource spawns or their main base.
  13. People always complain that in Atlas the fighting seems slow and chunky.. When I watch people fighting it looks more like what you would see in real life two average joes throwign punches or swinging a heavy weapon around.. People are too use to having super hero ninja moves when fighting in games.. but, it does need some work to it, even saying that lil more momentum with many actions. When I try to picture myself running down the street throwing punches without stopping.. I realize how absurd that is... I mean me running down the street for no reason, let alone being able to free punch everything like a boss
  14. I got that stat thing too, was told to hover my curser over my stam stat and the health stat would light up.. and it worked.. donno whats up with that.. Curser over stam stat suddenly makes health stat able to click again.. heh. You can do a lil hop to the side as a dodge mechanic in atlas.
  15. You get em, Realist! hundreds of pigs to tame out there! lol, glad you are enjoying to "doing stuff" erm.. playing the freaking game, part of the game.
