    An idea for a mod

    One thing I'd like a clever soul to do is re-render the stargate from the classic Ark SG1 stargate mod. This in single player would be mind blowing.

    Ok, so we got a 30 perfect tame bear

    Around the tundra area, it may have been around J3 or I3, i noticed a level 30 snow bear.. After we tamed it, I ended up sailing it away, and got it killed by falling off a really high single width staircase up a mountain trying to get a treasure.... anyway, on a whim, went back where I had picked her up, and lo and behold, saw the identical bear, level 30 female....after taming that one, noticed a level 4 or something spawned in its place, and after killing it, it changed to a 22 after killing that one, and the one after and the one after, another 30 spawned. Once we realised that, we just provoked the respawning time and time again, and ended up with 4 or 5 of them. Random sex as well, but it always cycled back to a level 30 eventually. We figure that where a 30 is found, you'll find the same again on a dice roll. I have never found a 30 spawn where lower levels are no matter of the kills. We weren't into breeding, but was a fun find anwyay.
  3. OP : Raise a ticket with GS. They have surprisingly logical GMs, that, will look at the full situation, and act upon it in a smart, fair way. If you went on hols, and your animals are still in your pens, in your base and the other players are just resetting timers to stick it to you, then, you'll get them back. If your pets were claimed, and they're in another base being used, then I'd say you're out of luck, but, in this case, raise a ticket, and logic will prevail.

    Just uninstalled the game.

    Just uninstalled the game.

    I had a little chuckle at that to. Hope GS does get a well deserved player boost like that. I would love to see Atlas reach its full potential, and see how it pans out. Heavy realisation for me was that I just can't dedicate enough time to make OPEN work. It's not the developers fault, it's my restricted free time that is. GS threw a bone and gave people like me a chance to experience atlas and the freedom to employ mods as I see fit without disrupting anyone elses experience. +1 and cudos where it's due.

    Ok so we decided on official pve

    I like the climbing pick / grappling hook combo.. find myself running out of stamina on the steeper slopes. Atleast hook up to as far as possible, and grapple the rest.. Probably derailed the current topic, but my 2 cents! Good to hear you're giving it a fair shot, Realist

    Just uninstalled the game.

    It's a glass-half-empty example, but in a way yes. The glass-half-full approach would be that if balance of persistence of the game world is out of whack of what's convenient to you (as like it is me), then, we can have our own world and do what we want I dare say with friends if you have a server.

    Just uninstalled the game.

    Happened to me, it's a chore to solo in multiplayer mode. If all your stuff vanished, then you have inactive company mates, and if you are solo, and you take breaks from the game, this will happen. Like I say it happened to me. It pissed me off, but, I swapped to single player, and now I have the world to myself. You can compensate yourself for your multiplayer 'losses', and carry on from where you were, with the additional boon of mods giving you some lovely and much needed flavor. The devs have done a fantastic job, GS have given players like you, and I, the ability to have our own world with none of the drawbacks. Do yourself a favor, reverse that uninstall, and go out there and pwn your own atlas. This time next week, you'll forget this ever happened

    Single Player very Good !!!

    Just have to remember that in single player mode, there are no formal ground rules to form a basis for code of conduct. By playing single player, your only set of rules are the world you live. If you tame dragons, and spawn level 5000 scorpions, who says that isn't the entire idea of that atlas world? Someone's single player world does not have to conform to the rule set dictated to on multiplayer servers set by Grapeshot. That's only there to keep players reeled in. Doesn't matter in single player, therefore anything goes, and it can't be wrong. I like single player mode it gives me the ability to play in my own time, without it becoming a chore. I can stop my boat in the middle of the ocean, log off, and when I log back in 4 weeks later, i'm on my boat in the middle of the ocean, exactly where I left it, and all my crew are as they were. Would anyone consider that cheating? You can't do that on the official servers. We're all good, chaps. There's no comparison between single player and official. They're two very different beasts.

    2x 3x 4x bonus weekends made me quit

    Most people that play solo / in tiny groups are the ones that lose out in big open persistent worlds. Everyone's enjoying Atlas against their own wish and rule sets, but in big open play, it's easy to get sucked into a vortex of persistently changing rules and goalposts. By bringing in solo / personal server based game options, more and more people will be able to play atlas they way they want to. If you have no time to play, but find 2x weekends the only viable time to play, then the new mode will be ideal. Some people want 0.5x some people feel that farming shouldn't be the aim of the game, but have 10x so that building a boat is trivial, but perhaps prefer PvE fun with no overhead.. ofc single and solo eliminates the spam, player mess and griefing as well. For me, being a sailor / survivor with and entire grid to myself is an adventure of a lifetime. Me vs a world to call home. Sea is a lonely place, i can finally have my house boat and play rules that suit me. I'm very luckly, the dev team just made Atlas exactly what I want it to be. I emphase the I. I now have my very own Atlas world, and a fantastic place it is. I have to exercise discipline with the settings now, so that I don't make things too easy, or, I get frustrated with the difficulty. If I don't enjoy Atlas now, then I don't deserve Atlas. I love it, settings and mods bring new life, and I'm grateful to the dev team for bringing this to me. @Jatheish @Dollie and team, you're awesome.
  11. Sad but true. Had to leave the game for about a week and a half for personal reasons, and when back I saw this in the logs. Looks like all our crew killed, animals gone, other players tamed our stuff, and boats vanished. Not a good day for me The only good news is that I was able to catch the base. It's something I guess.

    Bad day for company of Floie

    Thanks for the support guys. It's a bad day for sure, but, just like a losing football team; to hear the crowd cheering you on still provides a much needed crutch!
  13. Still think single player is the most important thing to come to atlas since they added water
  14. - AoD are now immune to anything except gun (non-puckle) ,melee damage and tame damage - Just trying to imagine what they are immune to... is it only bow?

    Atlas worth returning too?

    Atlas is definitely worth getting. It's still early release, so a lot of stuff to come. If you're with friends, you will have a jolly good laugh. I'd say give it the benefit of doubt.
  16. How the hell does anyone get this amount of gold? I dont think we have a boat that can carry 50k gold!

    9 ships Parked at my island Vanished

    Unfortunately we lost three schooners over the weekend to in PvE. Lucily the brig and galley survived, but our port is looking very barren. Noticed on the company info that all our crew and animals were claimed by another company as well... Don't know what hurts more, losing a few boats with associated gold and resources, or, someone else waltzing by and stealing our crew and animals we tendered and cared for Played GTA V and shot up some LOST to blow off steam instead...

    „Insane sword murderer“ new meta ?

    I want to be able to smear poo on my arrows. I'd like to see what a hollow tip arrow head filled with poo does when impaled in someones rib cage, taking in consideration what a chicken poo does when you ingest it.... yikes! Even better, sword blade with poo marinade.

    Set heading (ship forward ship) : How it Work

    An absolutely fabulous reply. Thanks Vurmis. Cudos of the day.
  20. Wow single player? Then I have just been made a very happy person. Wonder if single player could also be private LAN, or P2P

    auto-decay filling crew log

    Unfortunately, it's this philosophy that quickly becomes a game changing blight. I still have a dumbass taming pen in my courtyard because I didn't feel the need to foundation spam. As a QOL enhancement, they should at the minimum have a 'demolish all' to connected structures as an interaction option to a building (with adequate warnings!), to allow one to quickly remove a complete structure to compensate for players with 'time constraints'... (politically correct way of saying it!).

    Get rid of vits

    Scurvy is a real thing though. Vitamin C is a good thing to have to take note of. However, vit C deficiency is actually really hard to get, unless you have a crap diet (and can take months to show first symptoms). Who has that much of a crap diet these days? BUT we're not talking these days, we are PIRATES, YARR. Months out to sea, nothing to eat than hunks of meat, and salted fish.. and rum.. It would be very good to have a recpie for Vit C pills though. For QOL, Vit C should be a thing, but easy(ish) to keep on top of. I tend to eat like 75 berries for about 75% (convenient 1% per berry?) Would be perfectly balanced for say 50 berries for a 50% vit top up. Meat, fish and veggies I think are fine. I tend to eat the meats first, as they seem to nuke your hunger level far more aggressively as veggies or fruit. But, ironically, I think the yellow bar is the source of more deaths than anything else! How many times I have accidentally OD'd on yellows.... eating too much rice assures death!

    Set heading (ship forward ship) : How it Work

    I have never really known how autopilot works either, many folks have posted, ahh just stick an NPC at the wheel.. But, if you set a course North-West, does the NPC helmsman just sail your galleon at 18kts into the first tocks that present themselves? What about avoiding tornadoes or other ships / SoTD? I haven't yet trusted NPC helmsman, but figured this is as good a place as any to ask!
  24. The problem is, people go into these encounters with no points in health, not wearing armour, thinking that if they're on a bear it'll soak and sponge all the incoming hits. Anyone remember this? This scene makes me LOL all the time. It's a valuable life lesson. It means, just because you THINK you're a mighty warrior (on your bear), that someone can't just shoot YOU instead?
