  1. A thought occurred regarding Catapults, and how they are only used when people are bored enough to launch themselves somewhere. How do you make these worth using? Give them the ability to launch Explosive Barrels, with a set detonation timer similar to the Spike Shot. At the same time, to help promote this new use, disable the ability to glide with them and slow people who carry them. Catapults (as far as I know) can be fitted to carts like Cannons and Ballista. So this enables them to be used still whilst attacking an island, with the means to counter them like normal with cart based weaponry. It would also enable players to launch these barrels into the sea like a timed mine. It also helps combat the barrel gliding problem (which in turn might provide performance increases as people aren't building superstructures in attempt to stop these flying bombers) In regards to slowing people carrying them, perhaps just prevent sprinting, assuming it doesn't already (I've never carried one personally) means that you can still carry and bomb people using them, but an attack or defense won't get overrun quickly by a bunch of barrel carrying lunatics in their pants. Alternatively you could remove the ability to pick them up, with players having to make use of the suggested Catapult launching method to use them for fighting, but still allowing the initial placement in order to create traps.
  2. Is it possible to report a bug so that you don't have to hand over the profits you've already made after using it? so many ppl use this to get high LV,if dont roll back,how to play for the new player????
  3. Just some ideas for QoL and ballance i would love to see implemented in the game. These devs need to start listening to players who actually know something about this game, not loudmouth idiots. The reduction of the lvlcap is another perfect example of bad design, shitty bandaid fixes and devs caving to people who know fuckall about the game. Instead of fixing the root issue, beeing the XP curve is stupid and discovery points are way too annoying/hard to get, they just shit on everyone that put time and effort into leveling past 120. these xbox players and beachbobs will get clapped just as hard by lvl 120 as they would by lvl 150's the problem isnt the levels, its the fucking difference in game knowledge, any good player could clap a lvl 100 noob as a lvl 30 any day. All youre doing by lowering the max lvl cap is now effectivly making it so everyone will have less carry weight, meaning more shit gets popcorned instead of looted, INT is even more nerft, resistence not nerft, ships will be even harder to sink now with lower dmg cannons, lower accel sails, even slower sailing, fucking great. Were playing a downgraded version of season 2 in every aspect of the game, all theve done is remove shit and chance stuff for the worse. Here's some suggestions: Qol Increase alloy crafting speed or increase crafting queue. Berries should stack 500/1000.-Seeds should stack to 500/1000. Make skilltrees savable so respecing is a little less aids Allow tax rates to be set by company ID and/or by allies. Allow to tax your own company, think this would be nice since ud always be farming stuff for ur own bank without really realizing, making it so u always have a stock. Increase the barrel slots, crafting grog is aids Allow NPC crew to repair all structures including ceilings,cannons,walls when the ship is anchored and the NPC's are unseated. Ramshackle should by default have Npc's when purchased.(2 hours until mutinied) Make some interface that allows u to change cannonsettings for all cannons at the same time on ships, doing it manually is tedious as fuck. Add an option to "carry npc", like u can carry penguins. Sometimes its really annoying moving 1 npc from one end of a boat to another, this would help with that. Improve colors on ship planks. We still dont have a proper white, id love to be able to paint with white. When a plank is say at 33% hp, make a repair hammer icon apear on it, so we have an indicator which planks need repair most and can avoid leaks. Land Nerf shield, make it do alot of torpor or smt, the stun is retarded and needs removed/heavily nerft. Horse speed should be lowered and front facing swivels should be removed, noone likes them, they ruin land pvp, remove it. Buff carbine dmg a little Buff bears, make them do more dmg or smt, as of now they are useless, if ur gonna stick to a land meta revolving around tames, which u shouldnt, at least make a variety of them useful. Increase balista range so it outranges cannontames, makes them somehwat useful at least Increase the 3rd person view when using mortars. Just remove the ability to glide with barrels, with the last patch youve menaged to not only not fix the problem, but also ruin gliders, and make it so now only certain islands can be barrelbommed, just stupid, remove. Revert the entire last patch, noone likes it, just buff puckles by like 20% and ur fine. If you want to encourage ship pvp, you cant do that by discouraging land pvp. Sea PVP Increase the plank HP on Brigs to 7/8k Fix speedsails. I really dont understand why handling sails can and do have a working stat that increases their speed, but speedsails cant?? whats your philosophy behind that. Make weightsails usefull, make them the same speed as handling sails with a little bit of a better effective angle than speedsails Somehow make medium sails worth anything, or at least remove them from the loottables as they are the most useless item in the game currently. Double the ghostship spawns in GA, its ridiculous leveling ships rn with the amount of ghostships and people trying to lvl. theres way too little of them. Also adjust loottables so ghostships dont drop balistas, catapults and other useless shit, add it to treasure maps so theres a reason to do them more often. Or just make the ghostships drom 3 times as many blueprints. About 1 in 1000 blueprints is usefull rn, its ridiculous. If u want to make BP's less impactfull, you either have to rework the entire system, which i would recommend, or adjust the tables for now. Noobs dont have nearly as much time to farm them compared to competent bigger companies, so even if they find a good bp, craft it and go fight, bigger companies will always have 20x more. Now if the noob loses his good ship, he most likely will quit or be highly demotivated to get another since the chances of that noob finding another good bp are very low. Flotsam and shipwrecks should contain between 10-50 cannon balls depends on the quality (instead sailing to home grid 2 hours for restock we can collect flotsam for 20,30 minutes). This would make it possible to farm in GA's further away for extended amounts of time Let us to be able to take parts from enemy ship or from our ships that got sunk planks/sails/decks.etci am aware that this is probably way too hard for u guys to implement quickly, or at all tbh, but as of now sinking a ship gives u nothing, would be nice to have the option to actually be able to salvage a ship for parts. decrease the time it takes to claim boats, make it like 2 hours to claim a gally. Gives people time to send more ships and get their gally back in case they somehow lose it, and 2 hours isnt too long and is probably worth the wait if it gets u a mythical gally. Ship stats respec for gold, only usable Crew counter hud for ships. -Increase reverse speed for ships, cant be hard right, RIGHT!?!?!?!?! Ability to mark ally boats with a spyglass so they appear on the map. Add "trade route wind tunnels", Say E.G let the wind be twice as strong in the whole 2, 8, 14, C, M and H grids, this way u have a quick way to travel across the map. Make it so that when looking through a spyglass, boats render in from as far as u can see. This would make having someone in ur crowsnest with a spyglass actually useful, darkside RP already has this feature implemented as a feat, just pay their mods to do ur work or some shit, we all know u like to be lazy. Remove/rework grapples. With the current implementation, most fleet battles are a pure numberfight as its impossible to 1vx at all when theres a grappleship in play. Im not sure what exactly needs to happen to make them more fun for both sides, just fuck around with it, any changes are good changes at this point. Let us add 1 personal marker or smt similar to the one you get when marking a boat with the sextant. I personally dont use sextant, but would love to have a waypoint so i dont have to keep checking map if im sailing in the right direction. Or just make the sextant compas bar thing a standard, and let sextant only give u a minimap. OTHER SHIT Make it so u cant enter the freeport for 15 minutes after uve taken pvp dmg. Or make it so that the islands in freeport are all infinite peace phase and ur ship gets invulnerability as soon as u anchor untill it leaves the grid. Running to freeports is stupid, uve said for months now ur working on it, youve done fuckall, sort ur shit out. Introduce claim flag height limit, pillar bases are stupid, at least if the flag has to be on ground, u have a shot at claming the island. This change was one of the best ones uve ever come up with, fucking stick with it. Get rid of the current claim system, its shit. Hardly possible to claim islands, promotes crazy spam resulting in unplayable grids. Just do season 1 claim system but add peacetimers to it. Maybe add the option to place mortars on ships, but make them only usable when anchored, idk might be unballanced but defending is way too op rn, need some tools for attackers. Bit rp, but id like to see catapults be able to shoot oiljars. Idk if possible, but would be nice to be able to link resource box to smithy's and other crafting stations. I would love to see you guys add some actual objectives to this game. Say for example twice a day a "super ghostship" spawns in each golden age grid that drops like 30 blueprints. This would encourage people to fight over an actual objective with some decent loot. The best pvp weve had this season was fighting over the caves, we need more stuff like this. We need repeatable PvE content. As of now, all the PvE stuff in this game u do once, and then never again cuz theres no point. Add some smaller dungeons in GA grids that are on like a 1 hour cooldown u could farm for loot. I dont know what this loot could be, thats up to you guys, but something thats WORTH farming for. This would add some nice PvE content to the game, while also encouraging more pvp (people fighting over who can farm it) away from laggy shit mainbase islands. You guys could basically acomplish a very basic version of this by simply adding better drops to dragon and hydra kills, making it worth farming them and attracting pvp. Bugs to fix When your sails are repairing fiber and you zone, the repair will stop, and you wont be able to repair it unless you rerender the boat, please fix this. Greenscreens when spawning on boats When you switch ammo types, the ammo in the cannons will be wasted, please make it so this is returned to the ammo box, we didnt shoot it right? When you dodge backwards and instantly after do a scroll down attack with sword, mace or pike, your character moonwalks backwards instead of properly lunging forewards. Hitboxes of players on puckles and mortars are completely fucked, would be nice to see those adjusted to fit the actual model of the mortar/puckle instead of beeing a huge invisible wall When your boat planks are on low hp, and a tick of decay dmg makes them leak, it wont show the leaking icon (this only happened to me once, so idk if its an actual bug or some other weird shit happend to me) When zoning out of a grid that currently has a storm, the wind indicator will be wrong in the next grid, this is very annoying as it can fuck u up when ur getting chased. ladders are still dogshit, can almost never get up first try while swiming towards it. Sometimes when placing a structure, it will not actually place on the spot the blue indicator indicates, but it will just replace some other random structure thats near it. cannon indicator at long range is off, feels like cannonball will go lower than is indicated. After comming to a fullstop with a ship and then opening sails with spacebar, your ship wont move for 1 or 2 seconds even though sails are fully opened. This can be fixed by pressing s, but it feels like a bug. The same thing will sometimes happen after breaking free from a harpoon, even though ur free and sails are up, you wont move for a while unless u hold s for any amount of time. When you equip carbine and press lucky loader too quick after, the feat is wasted and ur carbine wont reload Song "the bryner's ballet" for ships thats supposed to increase repair speed doesnt do that, it reduces the time the debris is in the way. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- There hasnt been any significant change to this game in well over 6 months now, all uve done is tweak some numbers, and done some lazy bandaid fixes, most of which were for the worst. I think its about time you guys step up and have the balls to implement some actual impactful, meaningful changes to this game. It has potential, dont fuck it up.
  4. This might not be what the game needs the most right now, but I think there's not enough interesting feats to use with melee weapons. There are like 5 feats in the weaponry skill tree, 3 of them are just buffs to your attacks. So we end up with Circular Slice for swords, and Tremendous Force for Maces. Come on, we need something better than just spinning once with a sword or hitting the ground really hard with a mace! The Pike doesn't even have a usable feat. At least give us 1 more actual feat for each weapon. Maybe a lunge for the sword where you do a quick jump forward with a stab, inflicting bleed/stun. An impaling charge with the pike which you can change directions mid-charge, dealing big damage based in distance traveled, maybe even dragging players along like when they're grabbed by lions. (BTW why is the pike's main attack a horizontal slash? Make it a thrust with no forced movement and camera lock like in ARK! Maybe a bit slower for balance). The mace can have like an uppercut where the user jumps with the momentum of the upward swing, moving a little forward while knocking up/inflicting massive torpor to the target. Maybe more weapon types would be cool. A lot of icons in the two-handed skill tree represent a two-handed sword being used so I'd really like to see that implemented into a real weapon in-game. The blackjack and Throwing knives have special uses but maybe they should get some love too? I don't really know how tho. Those are my ideas. All of them have a bit of mobility to help with the rather static movements of most weapons. Hopefully I'm not suggesting something that's too hard to implement.. Sure, they're not historically accurate, but this game wasn't meant to represent historical pirates anyways. You know, with cyclops, magic, undeads and all of that. If you have anything you'd like to say, feel free to do so .
  5. Large cannons mounted on huge tower wich are making damage out of render distance. No sense to buy war toke because you can destroy everything anyway
  6. Blackjacks should be nerfed against tames. Why? Because now 2 naked guys can kill 100% imprinted bear with 2,5k hp and 250% damage with rider on it. How? You are hitting rider and he is unmounted from bear. Next step is to hit bear time after time because he can not do anything when someone hits him. When bear is bugged you can kill it even with pickaxes. You can do the same even with crab! Nice balance devs. At this moment there is no sense to breed or tame any animal because they are useless in pvp. Another problem is liquid flame. It should work only on ships. All land fights with animals are based on liquid flame. IT IS PATHETIC OP. Percentage damage is huge (around 33% per short hit). The range is huge. In addition, you can deal damage even in time of peace because the burning land also causes damage. You can kill everything only with swivel-horse with liquid flame. Balance means the possibility of using each weapon and the effect depends mainly on the skill. Currently, on land you need only blackjack if you are on foot or horse with swivel with liquid flame if you are using tames. Bears, crabs and everything else is without sense.
  7. Animals are the best at moving quickly, fighting on land, carrying, tanking, *and* harvesting (by far) There are 17ish skill categories, you should not make any of them required in order to be successful I could travel the world collecting materials and mythos and super rare blueprints, then finally make legendary or mythic tools... then completely waste time by using those tools to harvest instead of animals Once you acquire an animal they take almost nothing to care for (which may be fine if there are other ways to be successful) Animals already carry so much more than people that the trade off would be fine if they don't harvest so quickly
  8. Good Morning, Hopefully this is the right place to post it, in de Bug report system i dont find the right section. After the Last Balance of the Golden Age Ruins with the Rebalance of the respawns,they are nearly no more SotDs there. They Take a redeciolus large amount of time to respawn and in the wohle grid are at the same time at max only 2 fleets with 6 Ships. We scanned yesterday with 6 Ships for Like 4 hours the Grid and checked our Expirence with other companys and the answers wehre all the same. I would be nice if you could rework the current situation. ATM the Golden Age is the easiest Grid, even in free Port you got more Damage from decay then in Golden Age from Enemys. @Dollie@Jatheish best regards Efariam
  9. Remove target locking from the game!! If you try to use a melee weapon vs a player who is moving, your man basicallly stops in place to make a slow attack, locked on where they were to your client, while your enemy's server side character easily moves away from the spot you got stuck into attacking. Fists are slightly better but still would be a much better asset to the game without target locking I appreciate the effort it took to create target lock functionality, but it makes melee combat worse
  10. npc targeting is 100% as long as movement is either still or constant direction, but 0% if movement is circular? all you need to do is add a bit of random math to the targeting and (maybe some targeting delays or decrease accuracy based on target's speed) and npc's will act a little more like players, it would make them more fun and decrease their effectiveness vs players who aren't specifically paying attention to outsmarting the AI
  11. Too many ships have the exact same sails. Having exactly one way to make a ship is not good gaming Large vs medium vs small sails are not balanced in the slightest. Every sloop needs 1 medium sail which costs less points than 2 smalls and is easier to control solo. Every schooner needs 1 large 1 small, every brig needs 3 large (even though it can have 1 large and 3 medium sails (worthless)) Control sails are inherent in skill tree, this basically tells everyone they aren't as good. Either all sails should be inherent or none should, so players can make interesting choices. Control sails should do better in bad wind angles than they do, compared to speed sails Weight sails should increase speed at higher weight (don't slow down as much at higher weight). They just add weight which doesn't make a lot of sense (but may be ok). You can add weight capacity with levels (overlapping jurisdiction of benefit, maybe ok, but it's the *exact* same benefit right now) Speed sails catch too much wind when it's at the complete wrong angle compared to control sails. Control sails are only faster at extreme wind angles (like the *very* back of the boat) and even then a speed sail boat can catch the control sail boat by using angles. If people want to sail into the wind they should have to either go slow or use control sails
  12. What: There are 2 things people use right now: cannons with cannon balls, large cannons with large cannonballs Why: all you need to do is break planks and ships sink, cannons do plenty of damage to sails suggestions: cannon balls should not do splash damage to structures, they are not grenade launchers... that's what a spike shot is bar shots should be the only thing that can do much to sails. Currently a good burst of heavy cannons can completely destroy a sail don't make planks come off completely from cannon balls. instead, weak planks can be pierced, hitting the things inside the boat make cannonballs lose at *least* most of their momentum and damage the moment they touch water dont make loss of planks sink ships, especially top planks that never touch water. This would add to realism too... wooden ships did not sink from cannonballs (hitting water, especially) they sank from getting really messed up, and even then they floated, in wreckage. A ship can start taking on water from having an overall loss of hp, maybe a % of damage to all planks and decks, or possibly just *lower* planks and decks. Losing a ship from 1 missing plank out of 40... or 72 is just less fun
  13. It is virtually impossible to find a sweet spot when the animal you are taming continuously hits you. It is impossible to tame some animals, like a giraffe, since every time you get close enough for the feeding spot, the giraffe then attacks you knocking you back. The most feedings I can get in on these creatures (giraffe, elephant, etc) is 3-6, then the creature starts attacking, and the taming percent falls so fast that I need to start over. Less attacks? Slower percentage loss so that one can get ahead and eventually tame? I tried for an hour today, wasting a lot of beets. The highest I got was 20-something %, then the animal started attacking every time I got near it. By the time it stopped, the percentage would be zero again. I understand the need for hardcore struggle, but making it impossible will just drive people away from playing out of frustration. Needs balanced? Also, issue with taming a horse. The run from you far too fast and long for taming. There Is no way to get them in a pen to tame them and no way to tame them in the wild. Best you can hope for is set up a trap and wait until something worthwhile gets in it. There needs to be a different mechanic for taming creatures that run, including lions as they run more than they attack. Looking forward to a solution. Thank you.
  14. I already made a suggestion post, I think gun damage vs tames needs to be at least tripled ,and puckle dmg needs to be quadrupled. Maybe even more is needed, you can see actual numbers in the suggestion link at the bottom. If you have fought against tames and flame swivels yet, you might think the same. If you like this suggestion, upvote this or the suggestion post please!
  15. TL;DR Stop making wild changes to tames/gathering and follow a set formula, X (Amount Gathered) / 5 Minutes (Static Amount of Time Spent Gathering) = Gathering Rate Higher Quality "Tools", whether actual tools or tames, should yield higher results over that set amount of time. ------------------------------ So, at this point, I've seen you remove weight reduction, add weight reduction back, change base weight and more to creatures. There is a simple formula that should be used to solve this problem and you just don't seem to be using it. The grind in this game is real, no matter what I want to do, everything comes back to having to gather more resources. You should at least make it so that as I "progress", or move up in "tool quality", that gathering should feel as if it is less of a burden or at least yielding high results for less work. X (Amount Gathered) / 5 Minutes (Static Amount of Time Spent Gathering) = Gathering Rate Time is the constant, so that is what you should base everything off of. Let's take thatch and the recent Giraffe change into account. There are multiple ways to gather thatch, which are, Stone Pick Metal Pick Low-Level Giraffe High-Level Giraffe Bred Giraffe (At a future time) Then let's take into account the time it takes to acquire these things (Generalized numbers), Stone Pick (2 minutes) Metal Pick (5 Minutes) Low-level Giraffe (1 - 3 hours, taking into account having to sail to locations with Giraffes) High-level Giraffe (1 - 5 hours, taking into account having to sail to locations with Giraffes then a "High-level" one spawning) Bred Giraffe (8 - 30+ hours, depending on how you do the breeding system. If you do it same as Ark, time = infinite if someone wanted perfect stats and to keep the line progressing.) Progression should be rewarded, and it just isn't right now. The time spent acquiring these "tools" should be rewarded with higher gathering ability, and the recent Giraffe update just isn't that. Over a constant time span of 5 minutes, gathering rates should progress so that the "higher quality tools" yield higher results. Right now the time spent attacking with the Giraffe, the attack which acquires thatch, the animation is so much slower than the time spent swinging a pick that the yields are ultimately lower, thus defeating the point of spending 3-4 hours acquiring a Giraffe, let alone breeding and so forth. Gathering rates should be akin to, Stone Pick (5 Thatch per second) Metal Pick (8 Thatch per second) Low-level Giraffe (12 Thatch per second) High-level Giraffe (16 Thatch per second) Bred Giraffe (24+ Thatch per second, depending on Melee level) Right now a Low-level Giraffe and a High-level Giraffe really aren't that different. If you are having problems balancing stats between low level tames and "high level" tames, maybe now you'll see why Ark had a level cap of 150 for wilds (Or at least last I played, Atlas has pretty much replaced Ark for me, although it's pretty much just Ark with 30+ minute waiting times that you call "adventure on the high seas", but that's another discussion). It was so there was enough room in there to balance the difference between a level 1 tame and a level 150. So the next time you try to balance gathering, spend 5 minutes on each method and see if there is solid progression there. If you "upgrade your tool" and don't acquire more of the gathered resource than you did previously over 5 minutes with an inferior tool, YOU DIDN'T BALANCE CORRECTLY. THE JUICE NEEDS TO BE WORTH THE SQUEEZE - Alternatively - Why is gathering the only source of income for resources? If you'd cut those god awful Ship of the Damned out and replace them with ships the same as ours the game would be significantly better. - The Pirate Tree would have more relevance on PvE, and be more useful overall, since taking the increased salvaging perks would actually have a use on PvE. Letting us board / capture NPC ships would be legit (Especially if you added rare spawn ships as I mentioned in a previous post). - Diving would be more relevant, if you made recovering the materials from the NPC ships the same process as if a player ship had been sunk. - You would open up a new avenue of acquiring resources, which could balance out the resource cost of sailing ships. - You could add factions that those ships belonged to, allowing players to join those factions and sink enemies of other factions. - On this note you could combine the PvE/PvP servers together, I mean the PvE servers have to be below 3k players on average, why are you paying for so many servers when they are mostly dead? If players had to join factions to open up PvP then everyone could play together and we'd stop having to play in dead worlds. - Also on that note, faction ships could have "trade routes" or "patrol routes" so that you didn't have so many rando Ship of the Damned sailing everywhere, they are just annoying. It isn't an adventure when every five feet is another ship, it's just tedious. They could also sail in fleets of varying sizes, making some more challenging than others. FYI, the "meta" right now for sinking SotD is to just put cannons on the back of your ship and trail them after you so they can't hit you while you fire back at them, boooooorrrrrriiiiiiinnnng. If they sailed in fleets and in patterns, you'd have to deal with ships coming from multiple directions. - The game would have more of a "Pirate" feel to it, right now your pirate game doesn't feel very "Pirate-y", at least not on PvE. (Which I switched to because you won't region lock China and they just drive the ping up so people can't even fight back) - I feel like Factions and this whole section deserves it's own post, so I'm going to go do that now. In summary, Stop making wild changes to tames and gathering, follow a set formula! (Colors added because I saw someone else do it in their post and it looked pretty)
  16. first off, sorry english is not my native language. One of the biggest problems with offline ship-sinking is about the *one damaged plank = sinking* Suggestion: If you anchor your ship for the night, it gets a buff, after X straight hour/s, which makes it impossible to sink with just one damaged/missing plank. You actively need to destroy 1/4 of all planks to make it sink and be able to salvage it. Pros: - it is a lot harder to sink anchored ships - not possible straight after battle - you can still steal the resources inside the ship Cons: - i don't know, but there are always cons.
  17. Cobras are the most s**t animal in the game. These glitchy mother f**kers go through walls, have insanely janky hitboxes, and routinely cause a s**tty time. They also exist where it regularly gets to -19 C...how the f**k? All the animals in this game are awful, but consistently losing tames to cobras/alpha cobras makes people log out and not want to come back. Before anyone tells me to “git gud”...the pen in which they slaughtered a giraffe most recently was built over the water (on pillars), accessible only via ramp, and locked tight with walls placed over the opening.
  18. Good day to all I would like to know the opinion of the community regarding the current balance of firearms. My vision of the situation is as follows: 1. It is necessary to designate the accuracy of firearms, these are still smooth-bore rifles, and seeing sniping is unpleasant enough. It is necessary to add an element of dispersion of ammunition to reduce the accuracy. This measure will allow making a balance in the current weapons use system. For more logical thinking tactics of combat. 2. I would like to see the smoke, as the smooth-bore rifles used black powder. The same goes for cannon shots. Of course, if this measure does not increase the load on the players' computers.
  19. After watching the downward spiral over the last few patches, it came to me that there's actually one simple underlying reason from a programming perspective why things are going wrong (from a social perspective, the argument can certainly be made that the developers aren't listening much to the playerbase, but that's its own issue), and how it could doom Atlas to fail as a result: They're trying to tune/balance the gameplay experience for both PvP and PvE equally, or more specifically, they're trying to apply PvP tuning/balancing to PvE. This doesn't work. This has never worked, throughout the entire history of gaming. This probably will never work. You can not tune PvP and PvE the same way. This. Does. Not. Work. PvP and PvE require, not need or want but straight-up require, distinct tuning and balance optimizations that are often incompatible with each other. What works for PvP will often break PvE and vice versa because the different play styles for each mandate mechanics optimizations that don't carry over to the other style, or cause collateral, knock-on, or counter-intuitive effects. This is why MMOs are built the way they are - whenever you see PvP implemented in a MMO that isn't "globally" PvP, it will always use a specific mechanics subsystem designed carefully around PvP that carries a similar "feel" as the PvE main system but doesn't work the same exact way. If you ever wondered why MMOs that are non-PvP often have specific PvP areas or arenas, this is why - those areas are operating under different rules with different optimization requirements. A solid example of this in Atlas is the fire arrow/bow nerfing. What was ostensibly intended to make fire arrows less of a mini-nuke in PvP when fighting other players made them next-to-useless in PvE against alphas where you actually need a lot of burst damage and a solid amount of DoT to successfully kill something with 10x your HP that can probably outrun you. By reducing the effective damage value of fire arrows and fiddling with bows to slow down their effective use, the balance change in PvP has effectively rendered fire arrows useless against alphas in PvE. The tuning that may help in one play style hurts a lot in the other. The changes to stone construction could be seen as another. Greatly increasing the cost but greatly reducing the defensive usefulness of stone structures may have helped some balance issues in PvP but essentially make stone structures uncraftable for large areas of the game world in PvE, and the lack of effective defense against aggressive wildlife means that PvE again takes it in the shorts by forcing players to build with materials the wildlife will (for some unfathomable reason) endlessly attack until they break through. Because the dev team is trying to treat PvP and PvE as the same for the sake of making life easier on themselves (as having two sets of parameters to deal with basically doubles the work required), they're damaging the playability of the PvE side a disproportionate amount by trying to use PvP-centric optimizations in PvE. You can't have it both ways. Pick a side and stick with it: either make Atlas all PvP or all PvE, alienating the other side and driving them away in the process, and build the game as appropriate, or try to shoot for the middle and alienate both sides through balance changes that may help one but will penalize the other, dooming the entire project to fail.
  20. 1h ago a tremendous ping and lag suddenly appeared when some Hong Kong Chinese come with their Galleon in M5 that created a lot of bloody ping. I was fuckin taming a bull of lvl 16 and started to rubber banding suddenly when they anchored their fuckin ship on the freeport shore and started to run to many points like crazy people. Is almost 1h30m and still fucking trying to connect to the server and I get all the bloody errors on screen with Host lost time connection and bloody stupid messages !!!! From my 50 FPS and low ping of 50~60 I reached at a ping of 150 suddenly when these fuckin Chinese came on this server !!! Restrict their bloody access to EU PVE Server !!! They cause a lot of server issues because of their far away Internet connection !!! It's impossible to play this game with so many off shore far away players who want to cause lot of ping and lag and so much shit that I have so much nerves right now because of your INDOLENCE regarding this performance serious issue !!! I bet I lost the taming and everything because of this stupid policy you have to protect some toxic players for benefits and much more. Sometimes before having lots of money you should also care about your customers not some retards who cannot understand that, IF they connect from Mars to Earth they cause a lot of performance issues to those from Earth (maybe you can understand this explained like this FFS !) Restrict the higher ping and low bandwidth connections outside Europe Server or these performance issues will be more and more a problem !!!
  21. I am bumping some points made on a previous post, mainly because it fells like cooking is being overlooked The Situation Right now, cooking takes a lot of time and the produced result is not what it would be expected for the time spent. If someone wishes to keep up with the production of a mid sized group, he/she has to spend about 2 hours cooking. Moreover the resources (mainly the animal and fish meat, but also some herbs - for example rosemary) are eathier tedious to find, or get wasted to something else. The Point The reason of this post is that nobody should do daily 2 hours of playtime for something that is a little bit tedious and generally unsatisfying. Cooks should not play to cook daily in game, but they should play to have fun and travel around. The fix Below is a list of some suggestions that would help the lives of us cooks, the undervalues proffesion. 1)Decrease the amount of resourices need for some recipies (mainly Meat, Fish and Eggs) 2)Increase the amount of produced result (either x2 or x3) 3)Address the issue of the raw meat getting slowly cooked, meaning that you end up wasting a lot of resources as raw meat is one of the most used ingredients. 4)Up the egg production, or add a coop. Multiply the amount of eggs you take or increase the decomposition time of the eggs. 5)Up the rosemary gatherin rate. Right now it sucks 6)Make Jars hold 200 units of water, instead of 1 that is now. 7)Increase the spoil time of the dishes 8)Increase the size of stacks, especially the ones that are only 5.
  22. Ships are complex. I think most of the community here that has a passion for 16th - 18th Century vessels knows that, and I feel like I'm in the same boat when it comes to wanting a game like ATLAS to be an extremely enjoyable sailing/pirate/explorer game, because few are out there. I have a feeling a good portion of the community has at least made it into brigantines and I've noticed a growing trend of people wanting "more" to their ships, not just planks or hulls but more of what makes these ships unique, their sails. I propose an expansion to the current sail system in game: 1) Collidable bowsprits and figureheads: This needs to happen first, as of right now, bowsprits and figureheads are non-collidable objects in the game, so they can't be used for anything other than looking pretty. In order to add functionality to that section of the ship, they need to be collidables. This, in my eyes, adds some gameplay elements such as being able to add rams, paintable figureheads, and mountable bowsprits with jib mounts. 2) Max Masts: Masts weigh a lot and take up quite a bit of space. From a gameplay perspective, it's a simple solution to filling in all the empty space that missing due to a lack of auxiliary sails all over the ship. Large vessels should be about be able to have more for less, so sticking to more IRL mast amounts would be beneficial from a crewing and resource cost perspective. Doing this would free up some of that space needed for additional rigging and thus open up options for adding jibs, mizzens, etc. With this setup, ships would enjoy greater customization of sail patterns, as well higher speeds. 3) Jibs, Mizzens, Staysails, etc: Last bit would be to add all the little sails you can dot along rigging. There are tons of sail plans in real life and it's a shame ATLAS doesn't have these already. Sailing is fun and being able to customize your sail pattern with auxiliary sails would add some pretty fun gameplay to the game, both PVP and PVE. Someone has already proposed climbable rigging some there is no real reason to add that here, it should already be in the game IMO, but we'll see where the wind takes us. Thanks for reading!
  23. ATLAS describes itself as an MMO; it's right there on it's store page: This leads to a lot of people defending the game's current structure as being ok, and that solo players/micro-companies shouldn't be able to play or to even just leave; because it's an MMO and therefore is solely about working together with other players. I intend to demonstrate why this view is inherently wrong in proven MMO models. It's true MMO's allow players to work together; or against each other, on an unprecedented scale. World of Warcraft, EVE, Guild Wars 2, Final Fantasy 14, Elder Scrolls Online, etc etc etc. These are examples of financially successful and stable MMOs, and they all have something in common; they're about 90% solo PvE content. Epic raids in conventional MMOs like WoW, or EVE's thousand-man wars between mega-orgs, or it's emergent territory control might be what they are most famous for, but that is actually a tiny fraction of what they offer and why players, you know, play. Most of your time in WoW or Final Fantasy 14 is more likely to be spent doing solo story quests, leveling, exploring, unlocking content. Even in EVE, for the typical casual player they're probably going to be in low-sec doing safe trade runs, mining or taking NPC mission contracts, this isn't accidental, because this is those games 'resource gathering' phase, where you get the tools, resources, levels and experience needed to tackle the harder content. Then, when your schedule and preferences allow, you get together with friends or strangers and you do the group content; dungeons, raids whatever, and achieve the next level of progression; raid gear, titles etc. The point I'm getting at, is that everything in ATLAS is over-tuned and lacks progression. When you land on a beach you don't encounter a wolf, who deals 10-20% damage a hit, you encounter a dozen wolves, each of who can kill a fully armoured and armed player dead very easily; and who can three-shot a player armed with a spear and cloth armour; not to mention the frequent alphas who you need advanced weapons to have any hope of taking down even as a group. When you go to sea, you don't encounter undead scout-ships that a sloop with a cannon has a fighting chance against, you meet hordes of ships of the damned that even a brig with a full crew is threatened by. When you are ready to move on and find people to do group content, there is noe asy way to find them. Everything is tuned on the assumption there isn't one player, but a dozen in a pre-baked company for every situation, and those players are fully outfitted with the best gear for the job. ATLAS would be much more approachable - for everyone, and probably more successful as an MMO if they broke the content up more. The fix is simple, it'd look like this: Golden Age ruins and maps should be your dungeons; your PvE group content. Exploring a random island should be balanced as 'solo' content, where a lone explorer properly equipped, doesn't have TOO much to worry about from the wild animals, particularly in the more temperate climates. It doesn't matter if such encounters are trivial as a group, the 'standard' islands aren't there to be a serious blocker to playing, they're where you build up the tools, resources and vessels needed to engage with the group content - like in a conventional MMO; and that group content should pay off with the best loot, so it provides a clear path of progression: Solo/Small group play on islands for basic tools -> Treasure maps/SotD as small group for treasure/better blueprints -> Golden age ruins as large group for further advancement -> Raid bosses PvP then add an extra layer of danger, and allows players to shortcut the loop a bit potentially by stealing other people's loot/blueprints/resources... full disclosure, not really my bag, I'm a PvE player. But that doesn't significantly change things; PvP is disrupted by overtuned PvE too; Ships of the Damned or cyclone walls interrupting naval action, or hordes of wolves getting dragged into a ground battle, so the islands would still serve as the place to gear up and prepare for other challenges even if you are under greater threat. Not that any of this matters, schizoid design philosophy will continue even if a better path exists, but, just throwing it out there.
  24. I like to suggest to change the water weight in barrels to 0.2 kg per water unit, since those barrel look a 100Liter barrels and your characters takes like 100 units of water each drink, it seems like you are drinking 100KG or Liters of water. Also it 500kg of water is too much to even worth in a ship to keep water atm.
  25. Hello, I would like to suggest following things to the Balance of the PvE Creatures. - Decrease the Aggro Radius of Animals like Wolves, Tigers, Lions, Snakes, etc. (-30% to 50%) - Decrease Damage dealt by said Animals. (-20% to -30%) - Lower Spawnrate of Alpha Creatures. (-50%) - Increase HP of tamed Creatures. (+15% to +30%) - Bug: Animals can hit Structures like Storage Boxes, Smithy, Wooden Floors, etc through Stone Walls Reasons: - A Bow does around 80 Damage with a Headshot towards a Wolf, a Pistol around 130 and only the Blunderbuss + Carbine 1-shots them. Same goes for other written above Animals, except the Lion. The Lion's take more damage from these Weapons. Around a 110 with a Bow and so on. - No matter how much you try to be safe and look around you, these animals jump you out of nowhere and you usually end up being dead. - Alpha Creatures in the Territory I live in and after asking multiple People on other Islands face around 5-20 Alpha's a Day. Late Game they are easy to kill with Fire Arrows and Carbines, but early - midgame they're pretty much an annoyance and a Tamekiller of everything you own. No matter how careful you are, their Aggro Range is so huge, they'll jump at you out of nowhere and you mostlikely end up being dead with a Tame which gets 1- or 2-hitted. - It says something if its easy to take out a whole Crew of Damned Warriors when you look for Treasure, but then having trouble cause a Lv3 Wolf interrupts. The big difference is the Movement Speed I suppose. You can kite Damned Warriors, but you can't kite Wolves, Lions or Tigers. They're just too fast. It would be nice to maybe learn a Skill to increase your Movement Speed for around 3 - 5 seconds and call it "Charge, Rush" or something like that. Not to be super quick, just so you can barely outrun these Creatures and make it possible to either Run + Shoot them or get to some high ground. - Tamed Creatures seem to have a really hard time competing against Wild Creatures. Usually even a low level wild Creature seems to be stronger than a tamed one. It also seems like Wild Creatures have more HP than Tamed ones. Do tamed Creatures lose HP after they are tamed? If you have a different Opinion or agree with the points above, feel free to write it down. Please remember to give constructive feedback and add your suggestions, this is not a Topic to complain or troll. Thank you for reading!
