June 11, 2019 A couple of nights ago, my freshly christened fishing sloop, Aransas Pass, met with our brig, Pecos, out at sea to resupply and exchange provisions. During the exchange, the officer of the watch noted that his spyglass appeared to reveal an unknown discovery area nearby...in open ocean. Assured by our cryptographer that no land mass was in the area, we sailed over to investigate. We put one of our men over the side in a diving suit to scout for any wreckage or features of note on the sea floor but found nothing. Our investigation was cut short by a sudden storm....cyclones fell from the skies and the rain came at us like broadsides in the wind! Our brig made to come about and sailed directly into a patrol of SotD and began exchanging cannon fire. I elected to take the small fishing sloop directly west and outdistance the storm as quickly as possible! Last evening, I returned to the area in question and verified that the anomalous mist still lingered over the area...a most peculiar and spooky sight to behold. A crewmate joined me and went over the side, again using a diving suit to aid in his exploration. Momentarily, the most peculiar thing I have seen on the sea did occur...and perhaps you will not believe what I am about to tell you.....but do heed my tale and listen well... The hairs on our necks stood on end and all manner of ship's equipment seemed to freeze in time. Our sails froze, crystallized in a sudden frosty shimmer...my deck crew froze at their posts...my trusty parrot even fell silent upon my shoulder...the ocean waves ceased to undulate beneath my hull and the winds fell silent and still....and the fish....the fish seemed possessed by demons and rose from the sea! I dare not whisper a lie for the ocean gods would drag me and my crew to the murky depths....The fish rose from the sea! And among the marlin and giant tuna there arose three great sperm whales! They lifted themselves out of the ocean and took to the air! My small sloop was surrounded on all sides by this spectacle! It was as if the seas themselves were giving warning of impending doom! And then....my vision went dark...and I and my crew collapsed on the deck! Some time later, I awoke....the ocean had returned to normal and my mate was still over the side in the diving suit, the small air pump clunking away as if nothing had happened! I called out to him and after a brief silence, he surfaced from the depths and came aboard. "What happened? I saw nothing down there." "Nothing at all? Did you not see the fish come out of the water?" "No..." "And the whales? Did you not see the whales?" "No, I saw no whales, captain....perhaps we should return to shore?" "Aye....that we should, indeed," I quickly answered. As we made to return to the island, I marked on my map "Whale Sighting" at the location in question...and I made note not to return there until I had the proper rigging for whaling. Until next time, safe travels. ~Cele ========================== OOC: We were investigating a discovery bubble at sea that is clearly visible using the spyglass when the servers went down last night and three sperm whales floated up out of the water along with the rest of the fish nearby. Can anyone verify if a discovery bubble at sea indicates a whale spawn area or some other underwater structure, as I believe that seems the most logical explanation....
Hey guys, I) what do you think about changing the way to level up your character. My maxlevel is lvl 97(over 2,5m exp needed) right now, and the only way to level is doing rare treasurehunts. I think there is a overhaul needed to offer other ways to get more exp, since raretreasure consuming tons of time. (you need to sail very far and sail back to your harbour afterwards) For pvp server my suggestion would be to reward exp for killing enemy ships/players/sotd. II) Other suggestion would be to change rewards for discoveries or connect discoveries with quests. Like if u found a statue just bring up the quest to find 5 different statues of that type on the map to get a cosmetic/title/gold/special rare ressources (which u just can get via this quests i.e to craft mythic gear/new implemented contet) this way would make discovering more attractive for people. III) Bring in special titles or Outfits for PvP players or any other kind of statistic where u can find out how bloodthirsty your enemy is. (i.e. Title for sinking 100 ships, killing 1000 players and so on) "you have been killed by Title - Playername" @Jatheish
I understand the reasoning behind the wipe, especially as so much of the game is going to be altered with the update. I think many people probably also expected a wipe at some point, given Atlas is in early access and all. The issue I see with a total start-from-scratch wipe, though, is that there is now no incentive to keep playing until the update happens. If you're a fan of building, you probably aren't as excited about continuing to build knowing that you'll be losing it in a month. If you're a fan of raiding other players, perhaps the drive to do that diminished because everything you'll earn from it will go away in a month. If you're a fan of exploration or have spent a good number of hours finding discoveries, chances are you're gonna stop doing that since you'll start at 0 again in a month. My suggestion is to instead let discovery points persist. This gives players who wish to keep working toward something an incentive to do so, while still feeling rewarded after the wipe. This still allows everyone to start at level 1 with no skills or experience after the wipe takes place, so you'll still have that even playing field. The only real advantage current players will have is a higher level cap, but even then the grind to level up will have to take place regardless.
I am in N10 and using the spyglass I can see that the game shipwreck at cheat TP N10 273909 -335271 110 is a discovery zone but it is not giving it to me. I am on NA PVE. I ran back and forth through it about 20 times and never get the discovery
