Ahoy Pathfinders!

As we continue to develop ATLAS, we are taking the opportunity to test out new server configurations before we return to a larger world map. This season, our PvP servers have been designed with shorter and more focused sessions of PvP gameplay in mind. We are now introducing a new server with a much more limited company size setting. This will allow players to enjoy the thrill of PvP with smaller groups without the pressure of larger companies opposing them.

We recognize that Xbox players sometimes feel disadvantaged compared to PC players, and we are therefore launching a new server that is exclusive to Xbox users. For those who prefer to play with their PC-using friends, all other servers will remain cross-play enabled.

To incorporate these new ruleset servers, we will be repurposing three of our PvP servers with lower population counts:

[NA][PvP] Ivory Shores


[NA][PvP] Seagull’...

Ahoy Pathfinders!

To start off the new year right, we are reinforcing our commitment to better supporting our Xbox community. Unfortunately, there have been several game breaking issues affecting Xbox players recently. To that end, our primary focus for this patch is getting out a fix so that Xbox players can log into the game without crashing. There is still a lot more we need to do to improve the Xbox experience, but we are taking the steps needed to get us back on track. Additional improvements and fixes will follow in subsequent patches.

We have opened a new crossplay compatible Public Test Realm (PTR) so that Xbox players can also participate in testing out patches prior to them being implemented on live servers. Xbox players can gain access to the PTR server by filling out this form: https://forms.gle/9LEBUWF8EXx15WTt6

Ahoy Pathfinders!

With the new season, we have an updated Server Grid Editor (SGE) available for unofficial server owners. We wanted to ensure making a map was as easy as possible to all players, so we have added the ability to export and import server layouts. Players will be able to export/import grid layouts from season 10 or another personal layout they prefer. It should be noted that this feature and update is optional!

To download the latest Server Grid Editor (SGE) click the the following link: SGE download

Exporting Grids

1. Open up an instance of the SGE and load a project that you want to take grid layouts from.
2. Be sure to have ‘Show Server Data’ checked to see all the server coordinates


3. Go to the export tab and you’ll see new options with text fields above them:
a. Export Server Json (this section will be covering this)

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.

We have some important news to share regarding our official servers. As most of you are likely aware, our current season has seen some particularly rough waters. Some unintended features were unfortunately introduced that had an extremely negative impact on the game before they could be disabled. In response to this, we’ve made the difficult decision to wipe both the official PvP and PvE servers to provide everyone with an even playing field. We understand that this is not the direction we all expected this season to go and would like to sincerely apologize to our community as we take measures to improve the ATLAS experience.

We hope you’ll continue the journey with us as we make our way closer to exiting early access. Thank you for your support and happy sailing!

On a lighter note, here’s a sneak peek at a fun new feature coming in our next patch!

The season has already begun and our path to full release is getting clearer on the horizon. While this ship’s journey is well underway, we still have a few stops to make before we arrive at our intended destination. Our current plans for the season include new additions and improvements to sea activity, the trading system, tame utilization, and single player.

We do understand the current frustration from the community about the focus on introducing new content while there are still existing systems and features that need fine-tuning and fixing. Fear not though! We’re getting closer to being able to focus most of our attention on bug fixes and polishing of existing content. The waters may be turbulent now, but the storm will soon pass, so batten down the hatches and hold on for the ride!

On that note, here are some things to look forward to in the current season!
