------------------------------------------------------------------
Ahoy Pathfinders!

We hope you’ve all enjoyed the 2x event over the Thanksgiving Weekend! This week, we have a bit of a smaller maintenance patch, with the Small Armored Dock now available!

Small Armored Docks, for Schooners and Sloops, will have 20,000,000 health. We are also beefing up the Large Armored Dock to 30,000,000 health. Gold upkeep has been lowered to 150 a day, while Small Armored Docks will have an upkeep of 50 a day. We have also made a number of changes and bug fixes to balance and improve the Armored Docks. Rest easy knowing yer furry companions are safe onboard your protected Ships!

Development and optimization work for the Trade System continues! We have made improvements to the Market UI for Market Searching. Most importantly, we have addressed several server issues to improve performance and latency. Thank you for your feedback and bug reporting as the Trade System continues to undergo development. Again, not all features of the Trade System, including the NPC Ships, are out yet. Subsequent patches will continue to see more and more improvements and fixes. Missing resources and new items are now available for Trade as well! Anyone got any Ale or Grog? We’re stockin’ up fer a new adventure as the Ramming Ship is getting closer to making its debut on the ATLAS seas! Look out for it in the nearby future ;)

Please see the Full Patch notes below!

Released Patch Notes
v516.2

New Structure: Small Armored Dock
The Small Armored Dock is suitable for protecting Schooners and Sloops. It can be crafted at a Smithy after learning the Intermediate Shipwright Skill in the Seamanship tree.
  • Health: 20,000,000
  • Upkeep Cost: 50 Gold every 24 hours
  • Crafting resources required:
    • 700 Alloy
    • 900 Fiber
    • 4,000 Stone
    • 1,000 Thatch
    • 1,250 Wood
    • 10,000 Gold

Large Armored Dock
  • Increased health from 300,000 to 30,000,000
  • Decreased upkeep cost from 500 to 150 Gold every 24 hours
  • Added 50,000 Gold cost for crafting

Armored Dock
  • NPCs and Tames on protected ships can no longer be damaged
  • Added a new protected icon that replaces the anchor icon above protected ships
  • Ships can now anchor inside an Armored Dock even if the Dock is placed in deep water
  • Ships must not have received or dealt damage for at least five minutes before receiving protection from an Armored Dock
  • Bug Fix: Armored Docks can now only protect one ship at a time
  • Bug Fix: Ships are no longer protected after an Armored Dock is destroyed
  • Bug Fix: Protected ships will no longer decay. This prevents an issue where protected ships instantly sink when raising their anchor after a long period of time

Ships
  • Brigantine price decreased from 25,000 to 18,000 Gold
  • Increased max level of common ships from 42 to 50
    • NOTE: This change only applies to ships built after the patch

Trade
  • Markets Searching now returns a paged list instead of all Markets. This should clear up the performance hit on the server when someone opens a Market
  • Added new resource types for Trading:
    • Rushes (missing from Thatch)
    • Oil Category and variants
    • Salt Category and variants
    • Consumables:
      • Wheat
      • Maize
      • Ale
      • Grog
    • Others
      • Cannon Balls
      • Large Cannon Balls
      • Gunpowder
      • Fire Gel
      • Blasting Powder
      • Organic Paste
      • Fertilizer
  • Bug Fix: Addressed several server issues that led to increased latency
  • Bug Fix: Trade Routes are now correctly calculating distance when the shortest path wraps around the map border
  • Bug Fix: Disconnected Markets are no longer shown as candidates in the Market List

Misc
  • Warehouses and Farmhouses can now only be enabled or disabled by players within the same company
  • Restored XP reward to standard Golden Age Army of the Damned Soldiers
    • NOTE: Golden Age Army of the Damned Soldiers in caves still don't reward XP
  • Bug Fix: Treasure will no longer spawn on Sea Forts

Known Issues
  • Not all available Markets are showing up from every other Market during search
  • Upkeep Cost on Armored Docks does not properly show the next time. Upkeep is still taken on skill
  • Crashing Issues with Armored Docks - Please see edited note at very top of the post.

Final Note
Again, we would like to emphasize that ATLAS is still in Early Access, meaning many things can and will likely continue to drastically change - even in the middle of development. Anything discussed is only up to date as of the moment it is posted. Features and changes that ultimately make it to the next patch may be different from what was previously discussed.

As always, we appreciate the suggestions and feedback from the community. Please keep them coming! Thank you for all of your support! :)


Happy Sailing,
- ATLAS Crew
