  1. I like the map chain idea too but not so much if its going to send you to different grids. There is a good fantasy in digging up the treasure and inside the box is another map but as a practical matter lets keep it to the same grid. Its all very well for it to send you all over the place if you are only doing one map, its something else entirely if you have 20+ your trying to do.

    How to Merge Companies on PVE

    I think you will both need to make companies and then merge. Your current possessions should automatically come with you into the company you make but I have not been in that situation so I don't know for sure.

    C6 Hydra is Eluding Us

    A good way to find them is climbing up high rocks and gliding around - yes you will losing climbing picks and gliders but it gives the best view of the ground. Also look up, a couple times we have found them either on top of or near the top of tall rocks. I don't even want to know how they got up there but it wasn't by accident that's for sure. Another thing to mention is the official playatlas discord, they do have people monitor the channels there especially the bug reports channel - if you do a big search and can't find it report it in that channel and there is a good chance it will be checked on there and then.

    Captain's Log #35: PTR and other News

    I'm just wondering why all the new islands were added either equatorial (already kinda full) and polar/tundra (lots of unclaimed already) rather than temperate. It just seems to me that having more islands in a more habitable area would be better - any info on why those regions have been picked ?

    Who is having the longest.....?

    just made me look, 2584.... /hide
  6. I don't know how hard this would be to implement on the website but could we please have a "blacklist" type filter for forum post's ? This would let us add keyword's or names into a private list that then filters that content out so we just don't see it. Perhaps this is already possible and I just don't know about it - if that's the case please share how to enable it. If anyone knows of something like a browser add on that could do same I would really like to hear about it.

    Are weight crates a scam??

    Link this other post about ship speeds, its wrong or your leaving something relevant out. Each crate has a capacity of 8000kg that reduces the ship top speed by a fixed 6.7% (40/6) and a variable weight contribution up to 1600kg for a maximum weight crate. If you have 6 full crates that's 6x8000=48000kg of stuff you are carrying for a weight effect of 6x1600=9600kg. 10000kg (the original 30% weight) + 9600kg=19600kg or a little under 60% weight, not 75% in your example so your already going significantly faster. That's point one, point two is your 75% is actually only moving 75% of 30000kg = 22500-10000kg base weight = 12500kg moved while the crate solution moved a full 48000kg. @Simonsays095 wrote some really good guides on this, start with this one and then have a read on the others.
  8. Awesome work and well written. A couple of questions tho, Is it ever better to add a weight sail rather than a cargo rack. We know the speed parameter doesn't work on speed sails but what about all the other bonus parameters.

    Shearing sheep bug

    need tier 3 sneeking - see if that helps
  10. This should never have been the option at these prices - won't comment on PvP but PvE should have been a bunch more expensive or should have been that price per company to erase or both. A better option would have been a list of structure collections with check boxes - would not have been a very long list - that could be selected for destruction. By structure collection I mean structure with the same components ignoring layout so for example a floor plus a pillar plus a ceiling would be a single entry in the list regardless of what order they were placed / built and how many there were of them. Ideally the list would show how many of each collection there are and the number of pieces in the collection. This would quickly show the spam collections (high count of collections with low component count) vs base buildings (low / single count of collection with high component count). Take this list and assign a price to each collection (low component count = low cost, high component count = high cost, perhaps base it on one component = 1 gold) with a total showing at the top for what it's gonna cost to raze what is selected. Remember the price is for a collection regardless of how many copies of that collection there are - 500 single foundation spams cost 1 gold to cleanup all, not 1 x 500. Typical cleanup would cost less than 100 gold with this scheme and island would be cleaned up without nuking it and without pissing everyone off. If you put a limit on the number of components in a collection, say 10 to 20 for example, this could always be an option for settlement owners - so "that" guy that keeps refreshing his single pillar spam's all over the island can be dealt with forever even if he keeps coming back and doing it again. My guess is they will simply stop doing it in the first place since they will know how easy and cheap it is to cleanup.

This is just too easy to abuse - probably only a few people will ever use it and those are the one's that won't for warn the reasonable people on the island and that's just gonna leave a bad taste in everyone's mouth. I can tell you I would never have started playing this game had I known this was gonna be an option, was one of the first things I asked when my friends told me about it and wanted me to play too.

    Safe havens and companies.

    Mad Max in B11 (Barter Town and Barter World) and H4 (Arakis) are safe. This should never have been the option at these prices - won't comment on PvP but PvE should have been a bunch more expensive or should have been that price per company to erase or a better option would have been a list of structure collections with check boxes - would not have been a very long list - that could be selected for destruction.

    Tames killed by AoD

    put simply your a ........ define a lot.... i don't believe youv'e ever seen one.... wanna know why ? its simple really. even if you kill all the AoD how are you going to actually dig up the treasure..... and thus you get NO treasure, gold or XP. anyone who spawn's a bunch of high level AoD in someone else's base with ZERO prospect of completing it deserves a ban, simple as that - anything that stop's toxic behavior is a plus in my book. and there is no magic marker for where the treasure map spawns are on an island so excuse me for building WHERE I FUCKING WANT TO. i play here on a daily basis and that's the end of it. if you showed up on our island with that attitude.... well let's say you mite get the treasure but it won't be leaving the island. i guess i really should not be surprised by this and similar self-entitled replies and I actually made a bunch of people who joined our company take down the great wall of china for exactly this reason. The chances of building on a treasure map spawn are very low - I know of exactly two occurrences in 2k hours of personnel play time, one pre-wipe where we had to just walk away from the map (it was in the middle of a nice big base and the owners were not around) and the other was perhaps a month ago in one of our base's were we helped the guy kill everything off and removed a foundation so he could dig it up. this is a social game, did your mother never explain you get more with sugar than vinegar ? bottom line,don't be a dick and almost all people will help you. that one that won't is YOU.
  14. I have been meaning to write this up for a while so here goes. 1) Include 3x3, 4x4 and 5x5 versions of walls, ceilings, roofs and floors please. Let them be exact duplicates of the original pieces with snap points and ideally with their 'T' options if appropriate. Its REALLY important they have ALL the snap points - I recently made a building with the large walls and never again with all the extra effort to work around not having any snap points on the wall. Make them cost the same amount of material as making the parts or even a little more would be ok. The real reason to have them is to drastically reduce the replicate bandwidth / time to render a building with them compared to now - 3x3 is 1/9th, 4x4 is 1/16th and 5x5 is 1/25th the storage and bandwidth each time its loaded. Let them count their full amount in structure limit too so we don't just end up with ten times larger buildings. 2) Can we please have either a carpenters / stone work bench where thatch / wood / stone building items can be made instead of only in our inventory. It understandable and nice to make some stuff that way but really silly to not be able to make bulk copies of the simple parts in a smithy or another more appropriate structure. Also an opportunity to make a nice thing or things for our work shops. 3) Docks that are the size of the ship yards but covered on top with versions for thatch, wood or stone ceilings with all the snap points. The top's need to be one wall height higher than the top of the shipyard now. This single item would reduce the render / storage of our base by a factor of 1000 at least. Having these larger pieces will also make structure checking take less time and should be a bunch easier. I really hope you consider doing something like this, it would be so nice.

    Cargo Racks

    while this may (and i do mean may) be accurate its also extremely deceptive. your either using empty containers (dumb) or not comparing apples to apples. using base weights ie no points into weight in ship level the carried weight for 75% no crates is 22500 and for 75% with 6 crates is 60900. 9600 (6 crate with 8000 in each = 48000) + 12900 (left over to get the weight to 75%) = 22500 but add up all the stuff once unloaded = 60900. That's almost triple the carried weight - granted the ship weighs some amount that's not cargo but that just makes the ratio even better. A much better comparison would be to work out how fast you would go by taking 8000 out of the resource box and putting it into a crate so your capacity went down to 53.7% (22500 - 8000 + 1600 = 16100/30000 = 53.7% ) but you are being slowed by the 6.7% fixed reduction in top speed per crate. TLDR version is below 50% = no crates, grey area when weight with stuff in crates is below 50% but taking it out of the crates puts you over 50%, and use crate(s) if your weight is over ~60%. Because the speed penalty is fixed always use FULL crates (meaning 1600/1600) so your maximizing the weight reduction. Don't carry around empty crates - your just being slowed down. A nice QOL improvement would be an empty crate does not slow you down.
