  1. What's putting me off Atlas more than anything, isn't so much more modular pre fab ships, it's how bad they look. They don't resemble real ships from the golden age of Pyracy barely at all. There's hardly any decoration and they look like floating boxes with no streamlined shape or form.(I wont even mention the trireme in detail) If all ships are gonna end up this way in the future then I think most of the older loyal players will be gone. And tbh I don't see them getting many new players either. When you consider all the source material available for old galleons and brigs and ships of the line etc it makes me wonder if they even bother looking. It was bad enough when people were building their own floating boxes , but at least they were doing it for a reason. It seems like Atlas has become a boiling sea of ideas with no clear single destination. That's what happens when too many people try to steer a project. You end up with a disjointed mess.YOUR PRE FAB SHIPS LOOK LIKE FLOATING GARDEN SHEDS. I have honestly seen better ships drawn in story books about Noahs Ark. Seriously Devs, take the criticism now, before it's too late. Cos if another Pyrate based game gets released that's even slightly better , you'll be sunk.
  2. There's an old saying, your friend is the one that WILL tell you when you've got a problem. Early access should not be used as a never ending excuse to slack off on your commitments. Atlas imo started well and got better for a while, then completely lost its navigation. A lot of us critics on here have stood by the game since the beginning, and yeh there was no need for the personal abuse that the devs got at the start, or even now. But criticism about a game, especially on a forum dedicated to feedback, should be expected and taken seriously.
  3. Ah so the Devs were doing US! a favour when they released Atlas. Sorry I didn't realize. Usually games are released to make money as a business venture. Or to satisfy someones need for creativity. And hopefully make money too. I can't believe how naive I was when I first bought Atlas on steam, and then again on xbox (paying nearly 3 times the price of pc at the time) you see I thought that by buying and supporting an EA game that I was doing the game company a favour. I bet they only took my money so that I didn't get offended by thinking they were treating me as a charity case.How uninformed could I have been eh?
  4. A lot of people first bought Atlas because it was launched as an open world survival Pyrate game. Then it was discovered to be an intended ark dlc that was never used. The devs imo unfortunately are unwilling to break away from the ark dlc completely to create a really good Pyrate game. Their ship has lost its rudder and is adrift at sea. Personally I hope someone comes up with a really good open world Pyrate game soon, cos that's what I want to play. The devs of Atlas are too associated with ark to do a completely separate game imo.
  5. xbox players get shafted in cross platform games anyway, the game usually costs over twice as much, the lag is awful and the graphics are severely reduced. There aren't many companies that really care that much about console ports for games, it's just milking the cash cow even more. And I have nearly all my steam games on xbox so I really do know the difference. Even ESO that I have played since release on pc is the same. When I put a help ticket in on pc its answered in 24 hrs, I put one in on xbox and never get a reply at all. Tbh console players should boycott games developers that mistreat them, but lets be honest, that's never gonna happen.
  6. Yeh the blank map makes single player totally impossible to enjoy for me, especially as I cant see where my bases ships or beds are.
  7. Just the blank map alone makes the game pointless for me. Then with all the other problems being the cherry on the the cow dung cake. Hopefully we'll get a patch before the next update, and I might play Atlas again.
  8. The blank map is crazy, how can I find a damn freeport to hire crew with no map? or go back to my main base after sailing out? Also the lumber gatherer isnt working at all. The metal miner is fine though. I've got so many skills uncraftable now as well.
  9. Yeh I didn't want to start all over again just in case I couldn't run the game again. which is what happened with my steam version of Atlas. So far I cant craft a smithy and strangely I cant craft a table either. Also the shipyard says in red that the water is not deep enough to construct a ship,no matter how far out I put it. and I'm not going to put it in the middle of the ocean. I wish they had checked the game properly before running the update.
  10. The cheat I used gave me 100 smithys, it was... Gfi smithy 100 0 0 as far as I know you can just use it for one smithy by changing the number but I haven't tried it yet.
  11. I did manage to cheat code the smithy in. But maybe we dont need it anymore.and thx for the info about the bed . Would it have upset the balance of the universe too much for the Atlas devs to give us all the new info?
  12. I've got the same thing, I can't construct a bed either. I dont know if they have removed them, or its a bug, cos when I search craftables they are actually there. I just cant make them.
  13. As I have mentioned before, gambling and the encouragement to gamble in games has had new regulations brought out. Not sure how they would affect Atlas, but I know some online games have managed to find a work around. I will say though having worked in the gambling industry years ago and seeing people at their lowest from losing, I personally would not want it in a game that children can play.
  14. The Pyrate camps have always been totally buggy, sometimes they would be under the ground on my maps. In the end I had to disable them again in the settings menu.
  15. If it was true that they wanted all players out there sailing and battling as soon as , then why introduce gold for ships in the first place? Also they stated they wanted to make it easier for small groups and solo players, So again why the gold cost for ships? They are contradicting their own roadmap. Maybe they should go into politics instead of game development!
