    Let's play a game! If you were a designer, what would you change about the following tamable creatures? We often hear feedback that players don't find value in most of the ones we've tamable, and I know some ideas have been shared in various threads previously but figured I'd make a giant thread where y'all can suggest. Not saying any of this is going to happen, but curious to see what you suggest.

  2. In regards to this bug, it's something the team are aware of and we're looking into. We've got quite a few things we'd like to tackle varying from the design of the game, to bugs/exploits, balance concerns, and server performance and stability. Not everything can be resolved immediately, and as stated in previous posts, we've provided insight into how our customer service requests are being handled and managed with our small team through Early Access. If it's not something you have the patience. I recommend stepping away and giving us a go at another time when we're further in our development process, as that might be a more enjoyable experience for you.
  3. Ahoy Pathfinders! The Year of the Pig represents hard work, discipline and overall putting one's nose to the grindstone. It also signifies a focus on generosity and goodwill. We wish all of you a fortunate and rewarding Year of the Pig! happy year of the pig! To celebrate, you can now save 17% off ATLAS as part of Steam Lunar New Year Sale! The game will be on offer until February 11th, 2019. https://store.steampowered.com/app/834910/ATLAS/ weekly patch roundup! Complete Patch Notes In our last Captain’s Log, we spoke about some upcoming Design Changes for the game. That’s still a focus for our team and we’ll start to see those changes as we get into March and the months beyond. If you didn’t get a chance to read about, you can do so here: In the meantime, the team are preparing on getting the major February content patch out. In addition to new content and features, we’ve still been iterating heavily on the live version of ATLAS, releasing two major versions and multiple minor version updates in the past week. Our time was split between various different areas, including many critical bugs and exploit fixes, as well as some major balance changes for our musical instruments, the Kraken, and some more general/misc notes. released patch notes up to v18.46 Server Performance - Eliminated Cannon Animations playing entirely on the server for performance savings - Multiple serious performance optimisations for companies on servers - Linux WaveWorks optimisations (Linux Servers will run much better) - Server optimisation for structures on boats General Bug & Exploit Fixes - Fixed an exploit which allowed players to stall out servers - Added extra protection to inventories to fix and prevent players from bypassing pin codes - Fixed a case which allowed players to enter the bottom of ships - Fixed a case which allowed players to clip and stick themselves inside the boat's hull - Protected against players accessing inventories from outside ships via clipping into boats - Fixed multiple cases where players would fall through structures upon server restart, login, transition, etc. - Fixed a crash which would occur when transitioning with the sextant buff - Fixed Swivel Cannons from firing through walls - Swapped Mythical and Legendary in the descriptions for tools skills tier 2 and 3, as they were previously incorrect. - Fixed a bug where beds that were placed beyond the default accommodation limit were destroyed on server load - Turrets and Cannons will no longer fire underwater and can no longer be mounted underwater - Fixed a bug allowing players to reset all glider cooldowns by moving the glider between hotbar slots - Increased the required minimum diving velocity before going into the glide-fall state to reduce gaining/maintaining height - Ghost Ship has been fixed and will now take damage. - Fixed a case where players/boats would get stuck playing transition ping-pong between two servers, frequently happened with large boats. - Fixed multiple server crashes - Fixed a server startup crash that would effect modded servers - Fixed a bug which prevented players from being able to demolish structures - Fixed an exploit related to demolishing structures on Lawless Servers - Fixed Barshot so that it now targets sails and acts a slow through to incapacitating a ship's movement as intended. - Fixed a bug which would cause the activity timer on PvE claim flags to tick into the negatives. Also updated so the timer now displays days, hours, minutes, and seconds. - Fixed an incorrect fibre reference in crafting barshot - Fixed a bug where Dead Bodies wouldn't be replicated on servers with replication turned off (Freeports and all PVE) - Fixed a bug where picking up a higher quality structure within the pick up timeframe would result in the common structure, rather than the specific higher quality itself Balance - Explosive Barrels can no longer be placed on enemy ships. This is a temporary measure due to undesired gameplay. We are going to be redesigning the barrels from a technical/gameplay point of view to give them more use in the future. - Whale Counts have been boosted on the Tundra and reduced the spawn interval between whales by 50% - Wild Dragon damage has been reduced by 30% - Golden Age Spawns have had their spawn interval increased from 30 seconds to 5 minutes and increased distance from players from 7700 to 9000 - The gold cost has been increased on upgrading higher quality items and structures - Cooking Recipes spoil time has been increased - Tamed Dragon lifespan reduced to 3 hours - Tamed Dragon damage reduced by 33% - Tamed Dragon health reduced by 33% Quality of Life - Allow players to pick-up structures if you're on the same team even if you do not have demolish rights - Global Number of Ships is now displayed in the player's ATLAS Map UI. We'll be making this more visible on the UI in a future update. It will not display if you do not have any ships and do not belong to a company. - Added a Crew name filter for company UI - Ghost ship will now appear every night rather than every 3 nights - Option to hide territory broadcast messages - Territory broadcast message boxes now scale according to the character size of the message - Gunport camera socket has been lowered and moved forward for better viewing when shooting from gunports - PvE players will now be able to see their claim flag's inactivity timer on the flag itself - Attacking Player no longer needs to be in range for declaiming progress - Glider now has a required dive duration rather than a forced dive cooldown (achieves the same nerf effect on glider spam and feels better to use) - Pinging on an enemy claim flag should show all contesting NPC crew, in addition to players. - PvE servers will now automatically kill any character that has not been logged in for 4 weeks. Official Network only. - PvE servers can now use the homeserver option which disables replication on sleeping/logged off bodies. (Non Default but enabled on Official Network). - PvE claim flags now only allow logged in players to contest the claim Game.ini: [/script/shootergame.shootergamemode] bHomeServerDontReplicateLoggedOutPlayers=1 (enables logged off/sleeping players from replicating on home servers) bPvEDontReplicateLoggedOutPlayers=1 (enables non-replicating logged off/sleeping players on all PvE servers) Musical Instruments - Various buffs/changes made to musical songs played on the Accordion and War Drum. - Tweaked war drum battle songs to eliminate a big gap in the note sheet preview (just the preview, not the actual song) - Fixed a bug causing the buff timer shown on the music UI during a looping song that gives a perpetual buff to become off by 1 second from the actual buff timer. - Fixed a bug causing notes to incorrectly fail when activated near the edges of song loops - Fixed a bug where client fps stutters could cause notes to fail that should have been auto-played - Fixed server issue that could disconnect clients if they had a lot of map entities. Kraken Changes - Fixed a bug with the Kraken which would have inflicted a high amount of unintended damage - The Kraken's Barrier will no longer damage ships on collision - Kraken will no longer give impulses to players for the tentacle slams or tentacle impacts - Impacts with the Kraken bodyparts will no longer cause ship damage - Ship of the Damned Kraken minions are now damageable in PvE - Reduced the damage of the Kraken homing projectiles by 50% - Increased the damage taken by the Kraken tentacles by 50% Misc - Cleaned up an error message when attempting to craft a boat when you were at the maximum global limit - Added a 12-second delay between playing status voice clips (such as injured or starvation) - Reduced tutorial background opacity - Made it so the text wasn't cut off for long paragraphs in the tutorial - Mod Map Extensions now work (and will not require recooking the mod) - PvE Claim Flag inactivity timer has been adjusted so that it now scales dynamically. A company with a small number of flags will be declaimable after 3 weeks of inactivity, whereas a company with a large number of claim flags would be declaimable after 3 days of inactivity. - Top Companies will have their names displayed on the left-hand side of the map and are now granted special nameplates and figureheads - Improved Ship position on the minimap so that it updates more smoothly - Company Flags will now update properly onto www.playatlas.com - Climbing on other boat's ladders now disabled in PvE if the ship is anchored - Added Effect descriptions to Music and Cooking Recipes This is just the tip of the iceberg for our upcoming plans and over time we’ll be sharing more and working closely with you to ensure that ATLAS gets one step closer to becoming one of the most ambitious persistent online worlds of all time and fulfilling its destiny as the ultimate fantasy pirate adventure! Dynamic atlas maps round-up The ATLAS Dynamic Maps is a system that monitors live in-game territory ownership and indicates which companies dominate over the lands. Each week with our Captain’s Log, we’ll be including an image to monitor the progress of the maps, taking note of any exits or new arrivals and any drastic changes in the overall claim. Those who will come to dominate the ATLAS may very well become clear in the days and weeks ahead, though maintaining a large Empire will likely come with its own longer-term challenges… The companies that have occupied islands for a certain period of time will soon gain the automatic privilege to name them on the in-game and web maps, as it is their land! Remember you can don your Company’s company flag by stylizing it in the game with a paintbrush! Upload your own images or design it how you like, with the top company flags always being visible on https://map.playatlas.com/ [EU PVP] The Whale's Wrath Held: French & Ships, The French Monkeys, IVANARMY, ENSLAVED, Frogues Orientales, and Eternal Diamond Arrivals: OOOOOOOOOF, CHZ!!**, Dark Project Armada, CHEPO Departures: Bad Company, ETERNIA, Goulou Goulou, Les Spectres, Future [NA PVP] The Kraken's Maw Held: Dynasty, High Seas Booty Bandits, TPG, CSTG, OWO, No No No, and The Federation Arrivals: Destiny, BLDX, Team Casualty Departures: Barry Sails, The Cartel, Black Butterfiy ?BB???

  4. I think this thread is getting a little out of hand. You're welcome to believe what you'd like about our team. Here's the deal with how we'd like to handle customer service for the time being: When someone opens a ticket, that ticket is automatically closed with an auto response. Our GM team will then look into it to see if it's one we are currently supporting if so they'll begin investigating and may open the ticket to ask for further information. This more or less was always the situation, we'd close tickets we weren't supporting and just deal with key issues. We've just automated that part of the process. I understand that this isn't ideal. In an ideal situation, we'd be able to support every single ticket that comes in and deal with it from either a technical or customer service point of view. However, at this time in our development phase, we're going to be using this system to identify game issues and trends so that we can tackle them from a technical/development point of view. The team have determined that this is the most efficient use of our resources and will ensure that we're able to resolve problems quickly and for a larger amount of players. It will also ensure that we can avoid those problems existing in the future, the alternative would be tackling them more slowly and risking more players having to deal with game breaking issues. Yes, having a large and super responsive GM team would certainly be helpful, and I would love it but as is recruiting programmers and engineers to work on core problems which will have much more of an impact on the entire player base. The goal is to solve problems so that they do not exist overall. However, this doesn't mean we won't be doing any GM/ticketing work. We still plan to take action against rule breakers, hackers/cheaters, people who are harassing each other, resolving company problems, etc using the report system and the tools we have available to us. We've been pretty transparent about this from the beginning, it was mentioned in the initial Captain's Log, it was included in an announcement on our Official Discord, and our automated response when opening a ticket also makes clear what the primary function behind it is for. It's not a matter of not valuing your time, it's a matter of recognizing how we can best utilize the resources we have available to us and what practically is the best way for our team to fix problems with the game and that players are experiencing on a day to day basis. Over time, the process will improve. We'll have a larger team, who will be equipped with better tools and information to tackle problems via tickets and we'll have dealt with a lot of the current issues which are plaguing the game, resulting in tickets being created. We believe that this plan of action will inevitably lead to a better game, a better experience for players, and in the long term a better customer support service. I understand that you may feel frustrated with this in the meantime, and I am sympathetic to you, however, this is how are going to proceed going forward. Everything is a process, and as we make strides in our development resolving issues, that will clear up the response rate. Additionally, as the game grows and the project gets further into its development cycle, the team will grow too. That will lead to having more active GMs, readily available to handle tickets. Going to shut down this topic, in future please be more civil with one another when discussing topics. Thanks!
  5. Hey Pathfinders, We're still working on getting this fully set up, but for those of you who would like to host your own Unofficial Server, you can do so now. We've got some more information that we'd like to include with this, as well as some more setup but it'll come in time as right now our preparations are focused on getting the base game into a good state. Though we know a lot of you are quite savvy and comfortable diving into this yourselves, so we wanted to make the basics available . Here is a link to the ServerGridEditor src, as well as our wiki which covers some technical info on how to get started: https://github.com/GrapeshotGames/ServerGridEditor/wiki The latest version of the server can now be downloaded via the Steam Depo: https://steamdb.info/app/1006030/info/ and we've included an example JSON file. ServerGrid.json Over time we'll be editing the wiki to include more information, as well as cover as many of your questions as possible. We are working on getting this setup on an anonymous steam depo but for now, you are able to host an unofficial server with these files. Thanks for being so patient guys!

    We're going to be looking at moving over the tax-bank item-restrict functionality over to tames. Thanks for the feedback folks, keep em coming

    Paint on ships

    Good news. Team have informed me that the painting issue on Galls + Brigs is just a client side issue. We're working on a fix now and will have it posted as soon as possible. No colours are lost, so they'll reappear when the patch is live

    bug Tames falling through floors and boats

    This an issue we're working on and trying to resolve and it extends beyond tames with players also falling through the structures. Sadly it's more of a complex and difficult one to get the bottom of, but it is certainly one of our higher priority issues.
  12. Jatheish

    They lowered the build limit on ships!

    It's a reasonable suggestion. I think they should still be retractable + destroyable though, which may not make it possible. Will see what the techie and designer folks say.

    Crossfire not supported?

    Those specific changes which were made on that beta branch have been incorporated into the live game, though it might be that we'll end up using the branch again for these additional changes, we'll have to see how dangerous they are
  14. Jatheish

    NOT a game for SOLO players

    We'll be making some design changes over the months ahead to make the game more accessible for smaller groups and solo players, whilst still maintaining elements focused on large groups too.
  15. Jatheish

    Crossfire not supported?

    We've done some recent optimisations that should help 4k, but overall the game is pretty demanding and we need to make improvements across the board. We've got some things in testing at the moment thanks to some work directly with NVidia which should result in better GPU and CPU perf, hopefully, we'll be able to roll that out this month.
  16. Jatheish

    They lowered the build limit on ships!

    We've build limits in place for 2 reasons. The primary reason is that boats are considered dynamic platforms and each structure piece that gets added to one, the more the boat costs the server from a performance point of view. Dynamic structures are pretty expensive in general, which is why we have to introduce limitations. The limitations should vary across the different boats. Galleons allow more structures than Sloops. The second reason is for balance, we do have to limit the amount folks can build on certain boats so they don't get too ridiculous. It's by design that you cannot build as freely on a Galleon compared to a Sloop. If you're suggesting that the limits are actually the same across the boats, we'll look into it. It could be the case that the Brig and Gall are quite similar, but there should be a pretty significant/noticeable difference between the Gall and the Sloop.
  17. Jatheish

    Crossfire not supported?

    CrossFire isn't something we're actively restricting, but also it's not something we've plan to allocate resources to at this time. Lot more things to tackle which effect a larger number of players.
  18. Jatheish

    Company Lost

    Submit a ticket here and we'll be able to provide you with some assistance: https://www.playatlas.com/index.php?/support-tickets/support/&do=form&d=21 Please note it might take a bit of time to get to you, and right now there's an auto response which will shut down tickets however we'll be opening ones which we are assisting with, such as company issues.

    Loot on whales makes no GD sense

    I mean it's not that unusual for a bunch of valuables to be found in whales... right? They have big mouths and they probably accidentally eat things all the time! As for the blubber, that is certainly odd and we should get that looked at.
  20. Ahoy Pathfinders! Hang on... Captain’s Log on a Friday? Yes, it’s a little earlier than we had planned (first for everything, amirite?) but earlier this week we released a significant update based on Community feedback we had received as the game has now been available for two weeks. We’re going to do a quick rundown of the updates leading to v9.3, as well as discuss our huge incoming patch, v10 which will drop anchor on Monday Noon EST (or around then at least, we’ll keep you posted on social media!) All th' stuff 'n thin's If you wanna skip the meal and just check out the changelog, you can do so here: As highlighted in previous Captain’s Log, our number one priority was making sure that the game was stable from a client and server perspective, that there would be minimum connection issues, and we’d be handling data issues with a broadside of fixes! Since the launch itself, the game has tremendously improved in all 3 of these areas. Our crashes have statistically reduced by 97%+, players can get in and fully experience the ATLAS, and as of v9.3, we have solved many critical cases where Company and Alliance data would have been lost. There are still many more things we want to do in this area in the coming days and weeks ahead -- you can expect us not to rest until server baseline performance and hitches are much further improved. Released notes up to v9.3: - Resolved massive server-side stalls related to perf large companies - Company Member, Company Groups, and Alliance data loss issue should hopefully be resolved. - Official Network Companies are now hard limited to 500 members, and this is a current measure until the Company system receives a backend overhaul in the long-term. - Fixed some server crashes - Slightly improved server performance and generally reduced server stalls Upcoming changes in v10: - General note regarding server performance improvements, stalls, connection issues, etc (We’re going to work on improving this constantly!) However, that’s not all that we wanted to address! Since the launch, we have received so much support and feedback from our Community Hub, Steam Forums, Reddit, Discord, and social media. The team have been working hard on development, whilst watching with our prying eyes to see which to determine what needs addressing. Patches up to v9.3 and the incoming v10 have been planned to improve ATLAS’ as a game from its core based on most impactful, important, and how immediately we could see results. We won’t go into the thought-process details for each specific note, but we’ll try to give you guys a general idea around our decision making. Please note: these changes are not the only thing we’re going to do. There will be a boatload of updates following v10 too, every few days another major drop. ATLAS launched as an Early Access title, and we are a highly iterative development team. We’ll continue to pump out patches to improve the game and get it where it needs to be! So if there’s something in here you feel like we’ve missed, let us know on our Community Hub, Reddit, Discord, Twitter, etc. We’re watching like hawks and consuming like hogs; we will make adjustments; whether that’s introducing new things, tweaking, or taking a step back and redesigning. That’s what this development process is all about, shaping and growing the game rapidly with your input. It’s gonna get chaotic and messy at times, but we appreciate you weathering the storm as we sail into calmer waters! Lemme be a pirate, [email protected]# Games! So two things. One of the coolest aspects, without a doubt, is that you can be a fully fledged pirate. You can captain a crew, sail one of many boats, have a fleet, hunt for treasure, explore and discover islands, pillage, plunder, salvage -- the list goes on! However, at launch, we perhaps made this a bit more difficult and tedious than it needed to be. We love being a bit hardcore but it was clear to us that adjustments were necessary. In no particular order... Released notes up to v9.3: - Default resource and taming speeds have been increased to 2x as the baseline. - Sailing against the wind now provides 30% of with-the-wind sailforce, as opposed to 0%. - Also increased the amount of sailforce provided by minimum windspeed conditions by 30%, and the sailforce provided by maximum windspeed conditions by 15%. - Increased the base carry Weight of all ships by +40% Upcoming changes in v10: - There are 4x as many trade ships on the seas, and they now also sell commodity types for gold, as do NPC's at Freeports. - You can now buy a "Ramshackle Sloop" from the NPC Shipyardsman at Freeports. The "Ramshackle Sloop" is a pre-built sloop which has permanently lower plank HP, carry weight, and crew limit, but is cheaper and faster to acquire if you want to get into sailing faster. - Some ship costs have been adjusted, and in some cases reduced by approximately about 50% We believe that these first steps will help us get players to experience the epic piracy side of the game much sooner, whilst overall not having too much of a heavy impact on our balance and design. Captain Grapeshot, why do you hurt us with these hardcore mechanics? Well, you know what they say… pain is love and love makes the world go ‘round. ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°) But in all seriousness, we can be a bit overzealous at times, what can we say? We like it a little rough but we understand when things go too far, sometimes it just takes the fun out and that’s when we need to consider, is this piece of the puzzle really worth it? Sometimes aye, but also, sometimes nay! At times we should consider not punching people in the face when all they want to do is sail their raft and build a thatched home. What are some of the nays? Cooking, land ownership, survivalism, progression, and creature balance. Here are some of the adjustments we’re going to make to deal with the nay; Released notes up to v9.3: - Every Tame can now get a minimum of 30 tame level-ups put into it, plus however many base levels it had when wild. So for example, a level 5 wild wolf would get 35 tame level-ups to apply, whereas a level 40 wild wolf would get 70 tame level-ups to use. - Melee weapons are now temporarily ineffective against ship planks. Later this will be changed so that it will only be ineffective against anchored ship planks. - Buffed Tamed creatures HP and Damage globally by 25% Upcoming changes in v10: - Claim Flags now allow a "Neutral Zone" setting which allows any other tribes to build within them, with the specified tax rate applied to them. You are also able to specify an inclusion or exclusion list to these, to only allow or exclude specific company ID's / player ID's. All claim flags will have this enabled as a default setting when placed, and this will also be a retroactive change. However, it will not function until Wednesday the 9th of January at NOON EST, where we will release another server update to make Neutral Zones active. This means you will have two days, from Monday to Wednesday, to decide and adjust the settings on your claim flag before the change is live. - Enemy Claim Flags can now be directly pinged to identify any contesting enemies nearby, and the time required to steal an enemy claim now decreases the more Claims that enemy team has. - Farming rebalances to be easier; water can now pipe uphill, region requirements for growing crops are more forgiving, and crop growth & yield is much faster and higher. - Reduced shovel stamina cost. - You can now fill waterskins/jars from ground spouts. - Metal Tools can no longer damage the planks of anchored ships. - 50 more player levels added, and Skill Points per level increased. - Loot stat scaling has been boosted (retroactively) by 60% - Sea Monsters' damage has been reduced by 66% - Animals health regen rebalanced, so they're not regenerating high amounts whilst in combat! - Fixed up some temperature scalings and adjusted Fortitude stat effect Alrighty, fair enough Grapeshot... but what else? Betcha didn't know that <thing> is <state>! Yes, there are still a number of things we plan to address and change going forward. This isn’t the be-all end-all of our updates. There are more fixes, balance changes, new game features and content just beyond the horizon (basically daily) so if there’s something which you feel is important and we haven’t addressed, let us know. It might have been something we’ve overlooked, it might be something we’re tackling in an upcoming patch, it might be something we’re still sitting on to see how things fair, guess you could call us seafarers XD! You can be reassured that as each night passes, we’re fully dedicated to ensuring that ATLAS gets one step closer to becoming one of the most ambitious online worlds of all time and fulfilling its destiny as the ultimate fantasy pirate adventure! And on that note, here are some additional patch notes that we’ve made up to v9.3 or will be making in v10 such as addressing fire-from-the-depths-of-hell arrows and gatling mortars. These notes are pretty miscellaneous and tackle many things at once. Released notes up to v9.3: - Reduced min damage and min percentage on flame arrow buff by 33%. - Reduced max damage done on flame arrow projectile hit to 50. - Increased gravity on flame arrows 20% to make it less ranged. - Increased firegel cost of flame arrows by 100%. - Added durability consumption to flame and stone arrows (1 dura per shot, 40 shots per bow repair). - Change bow durability from 50 to 40. - Fixed a bug which allowed Mortars to have rapid fire. - Fixed alliance chat sometimes duplicating messages - Fixed a bug where clients could end up invisible when demolishing a podium - Default resource and taming speeds have been increased to 2x as the baseline. - Fixed a bug which allowed Mortars to have rapid fire. - Fixed inland water buoy's being invisible and fixed buoys, so they no longer prevent resource respawn. - Prevent ship collision damage from occurring when caused by other player ships on PVE servers. - Fixed sunken-ship area indicator lingering even after a shipwreck has been entirely salvaged. Upcoming notes in v10:  - All Cannons/Turrets can now be pin code protected for lever activation/deactivation - Lawless servers can no longer be specified as Homeservers. If your Homeserver was a lawless server, you'll be required to pick a new (Freeport) Homeserver upon respawn.  - "Favorites" server selection drop-down is added for Unofficial - Joining through Steam browser server list with password now properly caches the password for ATLAS travel  - Weather events are now indicated on the HUD - Armour effectiveness will be adjusted so that firearms are more useful in PVP - Fixed some bugs related to Sea Claims - Eating poop is now instant-death - Fixed an issue where you couldn't kill yourself by exhaustion (for stuck situations) Show 'n Tell! Hear ye, hear ye! We be seekin’ fer the finest of ATLAS community creations! Show us yer mighty fleets, paint pieces, flags & sails, impenetrable forts, hellish tats, scenic screenshots, 'n entertainin' videos! Each week, we'll be runnin' a contest where we'll select th' best o' th' bunch 'n award tha winners wit' a cash prize! Entries can be posted in the Creative Section, the Steam Workshop, or shared via social media. We’ve created a dedicated thread for submissions, don’t hesitate to show us what you’ve got cause we’ve seen some pretty cool stuff so far! Alrighty, that ’s it for this post. We will have a general Captain’s Log on Monday, most likely late night as that’ll be patch day. Next week we’re also looking forward to getting the ATLAS Dev Kit into your content creator hands and seeing what amazing new gameplay mechanics and environments the community can come up with! Thank you so much for becoming a part of our crew and we can't wait to show all you scallywags, landlubbers, captains, and seadogs what lies ahead!

Alternatively, you can remove the stated item from your inventory to get a new roll from the BP. - Resource respawn should now function as they did on Lawless servers prior to v10. - 50% reduction in the enemy structure prevention radius so that you can now build closer together on Lawless Servers. v10.75 - Wild land creatures will no longer target crew, tames, or characters on ships unless they have been aggro'd - Fixed a bug where Ship of the Damned would have rapid fire - Temporarily reduced Crew Log length as it undergoes some rewrites because it would cause performance problems. v10.71 - Fixed a bug which prevented cannons from being reloaded - Tightened up server-side protection on gliders - Fixed an exploit with mortars v10.5 - Fixed Ramshackle sloops breaking when you leave freeports - Fixed a bug which prevented you from accessing newly tamed inventories unless you relogged - Fixed a bug which caused Mantrays to be unusually aggressive - Comodity trader gold cost increased v10.43 Claim flag related changes - Claim Flags now have settings which allow other companies or players to build within them, with the specified tax rate applied to them. - You are also able to define an inclusion or exclusion list to these, to only allow or exclude specific company IDs (also used by players without companies). To grab someone's ID for the inclusion/exclusion list, you'll need to look at a structure they've placed which will list their Company ID; this number can be input into the flag's list system to prevent/enable building. Please note that exclusion/inclusion lists are not saved when altering building permissions, so switching from 'Everyone' can build to 'Company & Alliances' only will clear your list should you wish to return to 'Everyone' can build. - All claim flags will use the 'Everyone can build' as a default setting when placed, and this will also be a retroactive change. However, it will not function until Thursday the 10th of January, where we will release another server update to make this setting active.

A company with a small number of flags will be declaimable after 3 weeks of inactivity, whereas a company with a large number of claim flags would be declaimable after 3 days of inactivity. - Top Companies will have their names displayed on the left-hand side of the map and are now granted special nameplates and figureheads - Improved Ship position on the minimap so that it updates more smoothly - Company Flags will now update properly onto www.playatlas.com - Climbing on other boat's ladders now disabled in PvE if the ship is anchored - Added Effect descriptions to Music and Cooking Recipes This is just the tip of the iceberg for our upcoming plans and over time we’ll be sharing more and working closely with you to ensure that ATLAS gets one step closer to becoming one of the most ambitious persistent online worlds of all time and fulfilling its destiny as the ultimate fantasy pirate adventure! Dynamic atlas maps round-up The ATLAS Dynamic Maps is a system that monitors live in-game territory ownership and indicates which companies dominate over the lands. Each week with our Captain’s Log, we’ll be including an image to monitor the progress of the maps, taking note of any exits or new arrivals and any drastic changes in the overall claim. Those who will come to dominate the ATLAS may very well become clear in the days and weeks ahead, though maintaining a large Empire will likely come with its own longer-term challenges… The companies that have occupied islands for a certain period of time will soon gain the automatic privilege to name them on the in-game and web maps, as it is their land! Remember you can don your Company’s company flag by stylizing it in the game with a paintbrush! Upload your own images or design it how you like, with the top company flags always being visible on https://map.playatlas.com/ [EU PVP] The Whale's Wrath Held: French & Ships, The French Monkeys, IVANARMY, ENSLAVED, Frogues Orientales, and Eternal Diamond Arrivals: OOOOOOOOOF, CHZ!!**, Dark Project Armada, CHEPO Departures: Bad Company, ETERNIA, Goulou Goulou, Les Spectres, Future [NA PVP] The Kraken's Maw Held: Dynasty, High Seas Booty Bandits, TPG, CSTG, OWO, No No No, and The Federation Arrivals: Destiny, BLDX, Team Casualty Departures: Barry Sails, The Cartel, Black Butterfiy ?BB???
