Season 11 Patch and Wipe

Posted on November 29th, 2022 05:19 PM EST
Ahoy Pathfinders!

A new season is soon to be here! We have new server layouts, a Winter Holiday to celebrate, some items to improve taming and tame storage, and a long list of bug fixes. With the changes to the servers, we are expecting an extended downtime to get everything up and running.

Official servers are expected to go down Wednesday November 30th around 7AM PST and should be back up around 7PM PST.

There were some questions regarding the status of the Season 10 Roadmap previously posted here. Since we were not originally anticipating the current season ending so soon, not everything on the roadmap was able to be completed. The information in that roadmap is still relevant, it will just be extended into the new season. You can still expect to see those trading system upgrades, factions, modular ship improvements, and singleplayer maps.

Bait Station

The Bait Station is a small structure used to lure and bait nearby creatures with their preferred food. The Bait Station can be picked back up and reused as long as the inventory has been emptied.

Activation: To activate the Bait Station, a Toxic Compound needs to be added as a fuel. Each of the different fuels will provide a different effect to the bait that creatures consume. Creatures will only be lured to the Bait Station if their preferred food is inside the Bait Station inventory.

Toxic Flora:
  • Will pacify creatures to allow easy passive taming.
  • Wild tameable creatures only.
  • Max baited at a time: 1
  • The tame will continue to be affected and consume bait from the Bait Station until one of the following occurs: the Bait Station is deactivated, the creature is successfully tamed, the creature is damaged, or the Bait Station runs out of food.
Toxic Sludge:
  • Will slow the movement speed of creatures.
  • Wild and tamed creatures (tamed on PvP servers only).
  • Will not bait tames owned by the company who placed the Bait Station (or their allies).
  • Max baited at a time: 5
  • Time the effects last depends on the bait potency set on the Bait Station.
Venom:
  • Will add a bleed effect (5% health over 10 seconds)
  • PvP servers only: Will cause aggression on affected tames. Naturally non-aggressive tames will only target players and tamed creatures owned by enemy companies.
  • Wild and tamed creatures (tamed on PvP servers only).
  • Will not bait tames owned by the company who placed the Bait Station (or their allies).
  • Max baited at a time: 5
  • Time the effects last depends on the bait potency set on the Bait Station.
Bait Potency: Players will have the option of increasing the time a creature is baited by changing the bait potency from the Bait Station’s radial menu. Tames will consume more food when the potency is higher.
  • 1 food: 10 seconds (default)
  • 2 food: 12 seconds
  • 3 food: 14 seconds
  • 4 food: 16 seconds
  • 5 food: 18 seconds

Cow Carts

Cows (and Bulls) are finally able to pull carts, carriages and sleighs! While Horses may be faster and Bears tougher, nothing compares to a Cow when it comes to beasts of burden. Storage Carts (carts and sleighs) pulled by Cows have an increased bonus to weight reduction, allowing players to haul even heavier loads of goods.

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, as well as timing, 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
