    Xbox Only Servers (non crossplay)

    I've got atlas on both platforms and I like the idea of crossplay, it's not the pc that's the problem it's human nature. And that's something you can do nothing about. Also a lot of the problems I get now on xbox, I got on my pc anyway. Yeh xboxers deffo got the raw end of the deal, graphs are lower, can't import sail designs etc but that's the way console gaming always is, you can blame microsoft.

    Xbox Only Servers (non crossplay)

    Even if they make a server for xbox only you're still gonna have people who play longer and level faster than others. I just started playing rdr2 online and I get griefed and killed nearly every time I log in, and that's just xbox players. In the long run it will make no difference apart from the lag, which I get on atlas on my pc too.

    When your ship sink....

    In sp if you turn off damage and that happens, you hop around on the ship for ages. till it lands somewhere.

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    yeh but that guy uses mods and he doesn't always mention it. Besides it's the weight problem, once you go over half the ships weight your speed severely drops. In pve that's not much of an issue but in pvp it's a big problem.

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    Actually I'm gonna call bs on your schooner claim, and i've built a lot of them since atlas release. Forge, tannery, all crafting benches plus cannons and crew and you claim you still sail fast enough? bs. And it seems to be only you with the barbie fetish, why don't you play sea of thieves? or naval action if you want to sail and battle only with no building? btw i'm not unreasonable so if you post a vid of a schooner fully laden with every game resource and cannons and crew fighting the sotd i'll concede on the bs accusation. Looking forward to it. And believe it or not some of us enjoy building and designing our own ships, not just buying them ready made.

    Motik, a schooner isn't big enough to live from, if you put all your crafting benches etc on it you wouldn't be able to move. even a brig is barely big enough and still retain a good sail speed. And I recently built a galleon solo and it's taking forever. Also my point is if you get rid of too much land there will be nowhere to put the shipyards. And games like this where you cant build get boring very fast.

    If you remove that much land though you will have nowhere to build at all as a new player, So where do you put the shipyards? you would need to live off of your ship and the only ship you could put all your resources on would be a galleon, so there exits your small company or solo player. Also in pvp you wouldn't stand a chance when you sign in for the first time. I'm not a massive fan of factions but I could see it working in atlas, for one thing you would automatically choose sides giving you a straight forward attack target and also you would have allies from the word go. And at least it would be like real pyrating and not just attacking each other for something to do.

    All gone

    the only real way to stop the decay is to use your bed to travel to base and back.

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    I don't know why the 'what a real pirate would do ' is even a basis for an argument in a fantasy mmo with a submarine, torpedoes and a giant crab!! Also in reality pyrates very rarely attacked each other at all and mostly worked together. Once you accepted the un golden age canon stuff you accepted that this is no longer a pyrate mmo, so let's please stop using it as an argument for everything eh. Yeh this is deffo fantasy but golden age pyrate mmo? do behave. And for me the sailing is fine but I and a lotta players just don't have 6 hours a day spare to play the game. It doesn't need to be more exciting imo, just quicker.

    Wild Pirates

    Yeh they are glitched.

    Personal Ship Flags atop Mast/Stern

    Yeh i've been requesting this since xbox release, I've done it on pc but there is no way to do it on xbox due to the storage and the fact you need a third party program like atlas/ark paint.

    Blackwood Map, NO FISH!

    there are saps at most freeports in blackwood.

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    As far as I know this topic was just about the sailing issues, I don't think anyone here has actually asked for the whole game to be easier. The solo vs company issue,meaning end game stuff being boss locked etc I believe is still an ongoing debate elsewhere on this forum.

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    Don't get me wrong the fast travel in conan is convenient at times, mainly to avoid major hassles or if I've only got half an hour and I need to visit some bases to stop decay. But the map is really small compared to atlas. Personally I want airships in the game anyway, i'd rather that than another loada tames.

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    No they used to wander naked around the whole map carrying explosives, in fact I made a map for people to use outside my main base and they never used it. In exiles the map isn't really that big and you can walk everywhere, it doesn't take long really.

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    I don't agree that fast travel has ruined conan exiles and i've played it since release and I'm the longest surviving player on the server i'm on. I played pvp for quite a while too and it wasn't fast travel that was the problem or mega tribes, it was a small group of bored college kids that would wait till you were offline and blow up your buildings and kill all your thralls cos they had nothing to do.Then the purge that was totally broken and just afflicted everyone and destroyed my biggest base while I was offline.In Atlas I don't find the sailing boring, I just don't always have the time to sail for 2-3 hours a day. All that's gonna happen if people keep saying it's boring is, they will make the sailing more perilous by adding more dangers at sea, ok if you've played for ages but the new player won't stand a chance on his raft or ramshackle.

    Yeh I agree like i've said before you can't just log out in the middle of sailing online, so you have to get somewhere safe, which for most people is an ally base or their own.

    Seagulls sink ships

    I thought that loose lips sink ships? Or was that just ww2 propaganda?

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    I don't see why if anyone likes atlas so much that adding fast travel would make them quit. I and many others wanted more styles of ship and more realistic builds but instead we just got more tames. Which is annoying cos that's why I don't get on with ark having nothing but taming to do most of the time. I joined cos it was going to be a pyrate mmo, now it clearly is not, I still haven't quit. If you want to find reasons to quit a game then you'll find one eventually anyway. Like lots of gamers with families I don't have 9 hours a day to play so yeh for me the sailing can be a pain. And if we all did the thing that was suggested by the people that can play all day, just quit, the game would be dead in 6 months anyway.

    Cross play and NPC accordion

    you'll have to buy it on xbox to play it on xbox.

    Long sea trips - Need fast travel

    Naval action is a sailing game, sailaway is a sailing game. Atlas is a fantasy mmo with sailing in it. The moment you fly that dragon, tame the giant crab or all jump inside a giant tame ,then you are accepting that fact.

    disable WPE after playing single player

    The trouble is the WPE are literally just target practice. You don't really get anything for the effort, you don't get any crew out of it, the guns disappear and you have to repair all the buildings if you want to keep them' or have the hassle of demolishing them all. you get more for less effort in pvp.

    Island owners and island spam

    As they are primarily pushing pvp in the games features, I often wonder if a lot of the things they do or don't do are there to increase intervals of conflict between players.

    Why is it sooo laggy?

    One shipyard that can make all ships would help, I hate having to have a small and large shipyard at the same time. Not only are they a pain to place sometimes but they block a lot of space. In the long run a way to store/save ships we don't use all the time would be a good feature too.

    Destroying the ship

    Yeh i've done this while at sea, whole ship and masts, been asking for ages for the wheel menus to be sorted, ie not have scuttle ship directly after ship option wheel.
