  1. Ahoy, Pathfinders! June marks the 6-month anniversary since ATLAS’ initial launch to Steam Early Access. We’d just like to take a moment to say “Thank you!” to all of our players and fans for your support over the last 6 months and to reaffirm to all of you now that the development team is still committed to making ATLAS the best game it can possibly be. Especially with the help of your continued feedback and support; please keep your ideas, concerns, complaints, and reports coming. For this Captain's Log, we'd like to give you an early glance at some of the content that'll be making its way ashore with the upcoming Mega-Update! Head to the shooting range and pull out your pistols, it's time to brush up on your marksmanship! Introducing our latest weapon, the Hydra Six-Shooter Pistol! This new and improved pistol allows for up to 6 shots before reloading! So if your aim sucks, or you have multiple targets, this will be your weapon of choice. Curious about what else we'll be adding? Careful, you might just kill the... Cat You can pick up a high quality wallpaper-suitable version of the image here Found in caves, the cat makes a purrfect pet for contaminating enemy pirates! It can be tamed by hand-feeding, but you better be sneaky, as they’re known to be quite skittish. After a cat has been tamed, order it to ‘hunt’ and wait for your tamed feline friend to catch a rodent, either a rat or a mouse. Each offering the pathfinder something different: The mouse can be used to create a powerful delicacy and makes players temporarily immune to catching the plague. The rat, infected by the contagious bubonic plague, can be loaded into catapults and launched at your enemies. The plague is a temporary debuff which can spread to others if you’re not careful! We realize this may not be everyone's tankard of grog, but don't worry, there’s more to come and we can’t wait to share it with all of you. Stay tuned! Official atlas discord news Bug reporting Channel We have added a bug reporting channel to the ATLAS Official Discord. We appreciate your bug reports and we aim to collate and act upon them as efficiently as possible. In order to facilitate this further, we have shared some guidelines there on how to how to make a clear bug report including information that is relevant to maximizing the way in which we sort, investigate, and debug. We’ll continue to keep an eye on Bug Reports posted on our Official Forums but we are finding Discord is very conducive to investigating and resolving bugs.

These are the updates that the game has seen since our last Captain's Log. v207.7 - Fixed harvesting boost from giving more resources than intended - Fixed some unharvestable rocks and adding Fiber to missing freeports - Moved sextant GPS/Speed/Direction from above the hotbar to below the sextant compass widget - Prevented using Lucky Loader when in the middle of a reload - Fixed Harvest Boost and other skills from resetting their cooldown upon death - Crafting that requires 'water' as a resource will now consume 100 water, rather than the entire container - Fixed Grill not being able to use water containers as a crafting resource - Fixed overlapping text with Reservoir and Grill - Hydra is able to reliably break down trees - Fixed an issue with fishing rod where it would destroy itself when the item had broken v207.6 - Added JSON object library. - Added blueprint interface for anonymous communication between mods. - Added helper functions for: Searching for creatures by ID.

  2. The mega update 2 is now live The time has come for challenging the enraged boss in his icy lair, exploring new and previously unchartered islands and putting your mark on the ATLAS with new items, creatures, and quality of life additions; the Mega Update 2 is here! The Public Test Realm heavily facilitated our getting the Mega Update 2 ready to push to our Official Network and ready for everyone to jump into and explore. Thank you to those of you who contributed through playing on the PTR and being enthusiastic about reporting bugs and issues and offering feedback. We look forward to hearing about your experiences and seeing you explore all the new content that Mega Update 2 has introduced to the ATLAS. As always, we will continue to monitor and rapidly iterate on the game! For those of you who haven’t yet set sail on the high seas, worry not as during the next 48-hours ATLAS is available on Steam Early Access for the promotional price of $14.99 ($29.99 Early Access S.R.P). Come on in, the water’s fine! mega update 2 New Quests: Into the Ice: When you have collected all the Power Stones, head deep into a Polar Ice Dungeon to discover what lies beneath... Master Cartographer: And with a thundering swell, the heaving ocean rose and fell beckoning avid explorers to uncover her secrets. Get at least 40% of the ATLAS Discovery Zones Skills and Feats: Feat: Instant Hotbar Equip, unlocked after completing "Master Cartographer" quest. Feat: Harvest boost, unlocked after completing "Into the Ice" quest. New Levels: Ice Dungeon: Traverse the depths of the new Ice Cave as you navigate foreboding chasms, expansive halls, and abandoned mines to reach the lair of the abomination which lies beneath awaiting your crew. Found in the polar region, the dungeon can only be entered if players have unlocked all the 9 power stones. New Islands: Multiple equatorial and polar islands added to the ATLAS! New Boss Fight: Snowman: Activated lights in the boss arena now power a shield that maintains the Snowman's ice armor. Killing a round of minions will disable the shield, and prevent minion spawns for a short duration, which allow the ice armor to receive damage. When the minion cooldown is over, the shield reactivates. When the ice armor reaches 0, the Snowman's health can be damaged directly and no more minions will spawn until the next health state. Upon entering each new health state, one extra minion will spawn at a time, and an increased amount of minions will be required to be killed for the shield to be deactivated. When in the last health state and ice armor is destroyed for the final time, chaos ensues, and will continue until the boss is killed! New Structures: Offensive Structure: Torpedo Launcher and torpedoes. Master the waves with this heavy artillery projectile designed to detonate on contact with its target. Skill is obtained after completing "Into the Ice" quest. Building Structure: 3x4 Medium Gates further allow customization within the comprehensive building system. Utility Structure: Ice Box - a high-insulation box for generating ice in cold areas. Has “active” mode that will drain ice but reduce surrounding temperature (reverse fire). Consumes less ice if “indoors”. New Resource: Ice - Generates over time in cold zones inside of the Ice Box. Decays relatively quickly if not in “insulated” storage. Can be consumed to reduce temperature and the half negative effects of armour weight debuffs for a short duration (15s per ice cube, max of 5 mins). Ice, which is relatively heavy, can be placed inside preserving bags to extend spoil times, and also lasts much longer in preserving bags. Keep it frosty. New Cosmetics: Player: Adopt a menacing tribal-esque countenance with the Hydra Hide Armour Set or don the Cyclops Heavy Armour Set for a streamlined and foreboding Stygian look. Ship: Further customize your ship with the new Hydra Steering Wheel, and Bone Skin Steering Wheel New Attachments: Boat Attachment: Cargo Racks offer more options to the discerning Captain! This large hangar-based crate can carry a ton of resources at a massively reduced weight, but can only be accessed when anchored, and slows down the speed of the ship which carries it (at maximum cargo carrier attachments, a boat's speed will be reduced by a total of 40%). It can also be dropped into the water if your boat needs to make a hasty getaway, and recovered later into its hangar! Cart Attachment: Transport goods more efficiently! The large storage box can now be placed on the back of a bear or horse’s field-harness saddle, where it becomes a special “freight box” that provides reduced weight for the items it contains when on land. And now you can ferry around your items while looking like a proper traveling merchant! New Item: Fishing Net: Bide your time chasing that catch whilst on long journeys with the new fishing net. Can only be used when sitting. Equips on the back slot. Will begin automatically catch fish when the boat has met minimum sailing minimum velocity New Weapons and Ammo types: Ballista Ammo Type: Boat Harpoon. Stop fleeing enemies in their tracks by using this formidable weapon to attach to and reel in their vessels. Weapon: Master the aquatic depths armed with the Speargun. Can only be used underwater. Weapon: Up the ante with the new crossbow boasting the ability to load up to five projectiles and higher accuracy. Cannot be used underwater. New Creatures Olfend: This quirky looking creature narrowly avoided being burdened with the moniker: the Camelephant. The unique Olfend possesses some utilitarian attributes based around water. Water can be collected as you ride it across fertile land or by drinking from lakes and the considerate Olfend will store it, distribute it amongst water containers or...spit it in a friend’s eye. The delicately-legged creature also has the potential to be more heroic than it may appear by being put to use in extinguishing fires. Giant Tortugar: In some ways, the Tortuga, or carrier turtle, acts as an organic armored personnel carrier and, in others, it is similar to an organic submarine. Nestle under its’ sectioned shell for protection or stay sheltered as it plunges into the depths and affords its passengers reduced oxygen consumption. New Features: Company: Map markers Company: Announcements Boats: Can now be unclaimed and claimed Controls: Full gamepad support New Quality of Life Improvements: UX: Revamped Skill Tree UI UX: Adjusted 3rd person aiming so there is less likelihood of foliage clipping UX: Sextant Buff Corner Mini Map is now hidden by default and can be revealed by pressing the H key. Sextant Mini Map can be permanently enabled by turning on the option in Advanced Settings Combat: Players now have the option to turn dual wielding weapons off by holding the TAB key and the hotbar key to equip the new pistol, rather than duel wield it. Combat: Gun hotbar equip time now scales (improves) with the various reloading skills Combat: You can now attack from the run-state (but not whilst running). Previously when attempting to attack whilst running, you would have had to pause, then attack. Now you can go straight from a run into an attack. Structures: The grill can now be attached to water pipes Controls: You can now use the F key as an option to pick up all items from the floor within a certain radius Ship: Pressing the F key whilst driving the ship, now allows you to access its inventory menu Bug Fixes: Skills: Fixed skills showing up in the wrong order on the skill tree Ships: Fixed a bug which prevented ships from reversing when they bumped into shores Ships: Fixed pressing right click to zoom in on the compass when sitting at a wheel of a ship Ships: Can no longer place a Steering Wheel inside the sail mast Building: Fixed a bug which prevented Water Reservoirs from irrigating grills if gathering water from a non-lake source Building: Fixed vertical encroachment check on the bookcase so it fits in 1-high wall rooms Resources: Fixed a bug where brain coral and fire coral were incorrectly labeled Map: Multiple level fixes (holes, waterfall transitions, soil types, etc) Creatures: Fixed a case where creatures would be stuck in the flee state whilst bola'd Creatures Fixed a case where creatures would appear to stand up briefly just after being bola'd UX: Fixed a bug which prevented you from seeing the HUD of a dropped item UX: Scaled the size of ammo texts on ammo containers to make them more readable and changed CanisterShot to Canister Shot Misc: Fixed icons for: Cooked Prime Fish Meat, Explosive Barrels, and Instant Equip Misc: Disabled male voice on female characters when using a repair hammer on damaged planks Misc: Fixed multiple cases where players shoulder disappears when harvesting with new anims Misc: Fixed manual targeting aim location not replicating to clients Balance Changes: Combat: Reduced sickle damage against creatures and players Combat: Sprint/Charge weapons have been disabled and will be re-added to the game as enhanced feats Ships: Small Weight Sail weight bonus increased from 515 to 1000 Ships: Medium Weight Sail weight bonus increased from 920 to 2500 Ships: Large Weight Sail weight bonus increased from 1300 to 4000 Ships: Small Handling Sail wind effectiveness increased from 101 to 118 Ships: Medium Handling Sail wind effectiveness increased from 101 to 118 Ships: Large Handling Sail wind effectiveness increased from 101 to 118 For the latest dispatch on #playATLAS keep yer one good eye trained on this here information Natter n' chatter on Discord: https://discord.gg/playatlas Navigate ye olde Subreddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/playatlas Hear ye, hear ye on Twitter: https://twitter.com/sailtheatlas Watch us scallywags on Twitch: http://twitch.tv/sailtheatlas Plus ye can band with us Pirates on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/playatlasgame View full article

  13. In light of the volume of recent bans we have had to issue regarding behaviour related misconduct we're issuing a reminder to players for whom this may be relevant. This particular type of misconduct, as outlined in our Code of Conduct, constitutes any of the following: This includes but is not limited to language or behaviour which is unlawful, harmful, threatening, abusive, harassing, defamatory, obscene, hateful, sexually explicit, or racially, ethnically or otherwise offensive. Unfortunately, many of our recent Misconduct bans have revolved around racial/cultural and/or homophobic slurs. This will not be tolerated on our Official Networks and will result in a permanent account ban. Please abide by our Code of Conduct when playing on our Networks if you wish to avoid such action. PvP-related trash talk is fine. We trust the vast majority of our players know the difference between that and the type of talk which will likely result in enforcement action. Our full Code Of Conduct can be found here Regards, Grapeshot Games.

    Vanishing Structure Pieces/Ceilings

    No, it hasn't been forgotten, it's quite a deep technical fix and our first round of fixes for it didn't solve the issue entirely. We're working on it!
  17. Joining the PTR The ATLAS Public Test Realm is available to all players by opting into the Steam Beta branch. You can join the PTR by following these steps: 1) Right click on the ATLAS game in your steam library and select "properties" 2) Select the "Beta" tab on the popup as indicated below: 3) Locate publictestrealm in the drop down menu and select that. 4) Select close then launch ATLAS. You may need to restart your Steam Clients to make sure you see the publictestrealm branch as a beta option. We will be reopening our PTR Bug reporting channels on the Discord and here on the Forums to coincide with the launch of the PTR. Instructions on opting into the PTR Bug Report channel on the ATLAS Discord can be found in #discord_news.
  18. Attention Pathfinders, Recently, we were able to identify multiple ways in which players were able to gain a massive amount of experience points, very quickly. Some of these methods were made public, some reported privately, and others were identified internally. We wanted to be thorough and catch every possible way this could have been abused. Due to these bugs, a few scenarios arose ingame: Players were levelling much faster than intended. It highlighted a balance concern with how high items and characters could scale. Our aim was to tackle this in the smoothest way possible, and our intention was to avoid a wipe/rollback, and minimize damage to innocence at all costs. Ultimately, this is what we’ve decided to do and with our most recent update, we have introduced the following changes: Crafting Bonus on items is now capped at 60%. Any character which was above level 100 will now be reverted to level 100. One time character respec for any character that had their XP reduced back to 100. One time destruction of all crafted items with a crafting bonus of over 60%. We believe that these changes, whilst imperfect, should help restore sanctity to the Official Game. Going forward, we'll also be taking a look at how high stats can scale, in particular intelligence and health and we'll be adjusting them in a way that will have a retroactive effect in the future. We want to make sure that everyone can enjoy their adventures and will continue to take bugs and exploit matters seriously. We know we may not always act as fast as you like, but rest assured these matters are highly concerning to us and we will look for an effective solution which we can deploy rapidly within our means. As always, we value your feedback and encourage you to share it with us. Grapeshot Games
  19. Ahoy Pathfinders! Now that the flux of development related to ATLAS 1.5 has settled, we have made a return to our regularly scheduled patches to address stability, bugs, and balance whilst we prepare our next Mega-Update.

If you’ve got something on your mind, whether it’s about future development plans, upcoming content, decisions regarding features, or how we feel about Endgame, submit your questions to this thread! mega-update! Now that our first large milestone has made it out the door, the team has been working hard on our next major content update. This will include new playable areas, creatures, weapons, items, ship mechanics and more -- much of which we’ll be covering in our upcoming Live Stream! Please keep in mind that this update is an evolving work-in-progress and thus, isn’t set in stone. This means that it’s open to change, whether it’s the visual appearance or the actual intended gameplay purpose it serves. But without further ado, here’s a little peek of the content to come! Icebox A high insulation box for transporting ice! Can be used to reduce surrounding temperature, extend the spoil time of perishables, and quench your thirst -- assuming it’s fully stocked.

This specific map will be set up so that you can still enjoy all the mechanics that ATLAS has to offer, whilst hosting it as a standalone server with no additional database setup required! patch roundup! The community’s contributions throughout early access, whether that’s bug reports, feedback on features, and content suggestion have been highly helpful in ATLAS’ development. Thanks to your reports, we were able to identify and resolve one of our more frequent server crashes. Additionally, we’ve spent a lot of time focusing on the core technical aspect of the game and have significantly optimized crew attached to stations, movement on ships, and resolved some outstanding bugs. The effect on our servers after eliminating that crash.
