Jesse, can you guys tell us these things, please? I could deal with anger much better if I knew your team was aware of 'things' at least. Maybe a running tally of a list of issues on playatlas.com, without solutions even - just a list of issues that we can read so we know that our issues are known. I'm considering quitting because of the PvE 72 hour flag timers not working but, if I knew you were at least aware of it, I would persevere with hope instead of quit with disgust.
This is fine and all but then mega tribes will camp outside of these ports to steal everything you have just baught and have to sil back. Dont just do thing cause it seems like a good idea. It will be explioted.
Everything will be exploited, that's why things take time, consideration, and feedback. :)
It's a good thing but maaaaybe those damned ships shouldn't spawn so often and especially right at one's nose?
They shouldn't spawn right next to your ship within the zone you're in, by which I mean a distance where they immediately aggro you. If that's happening I would file a bug report at playatlas.com.
1: Get rid of Vitamin Surpluses.. it makes zero sense, and on that same note either scrap the entire vitamin system, or simplify it to Meat/Fruit/Veg
2: Flotsams need to be much much rarer, but with actual loot. Instead of building blueprints something like some ammo, a gun, maybe a sword or something would be worth stopping for.
3: Alphas need loot, like special treasure maps or something, or maybe some of that mystic element when it has a use
4: Blueprints, why do they need a ton of different things of the exact same resources.. thats stupid.
5: Taming I can deal with the bolas, I can deal with the obscure materials, what I cant deal with is that you HAVE TO BE SPECED INTO TAMING just to ride them. Which entirely defeats the purpose of having a "group tamer"
6: Salvaging is in a better place (now that its possible) but it really need improvement still, we need lights on the suit, and remove the melee damage reduction while wearing it. A...Read more
Lot of cool discussion in this thread but I just wanted to let you know that lanterns work underwater for your salvaging needs. ;)
When you Sail do a 6 hour trip because sugar is 3 hours away. 6 Fucking Hours. and a Level 1 Ship of the Damned spawns infront of you 10 minutes from Home Island and Instantly Destroys Your Ship as it clips with you.
Sort this fucking spawning out. How can There not being a single sugar resource be within a 6 hour trip. Fuck this game.
Sorry that happened to you. Our intention is to eventually have trading ports so enterprising players can bring resources from around the world to be sold for gold coins or traded for other resources. That way you won't have to make the long trips yourself, and your local resources or gold will be the currency to acquire remote resources. More on these types of systems later once the early technical bugs and balance issues are addressed.
