    Patchversion: 209.34



    Releasestatus: released 


    • When replacing invalid claimflags, you can now place them within the green ring of your original flag
    • Claim flag height limit has been increased to 6500 units above sea level

    Patchversion: 209.31



    Status: released


    • Magic Mythos is enabled on our Official Network: 4x Harvesting, 4x Taming, 4x XP, 2x Gold, 2x Egg Hatching, 2x Baby Maturing, 2x Crop Growth, and 50% less mating interval!
    • Company Island Point Limit has been increased by 100
    • Tax Banks can only be placed by Admins or above in companies.
    • Fixed certain level creatures not receiving experience points in Single Player
    • Fixed underwater trenches not loading properly in Single Player
    • Fixed a bug which caused Pistols to have a bullet loaded after being repaired from a broken state
    • Discovery Zones on the map can now be hidden using the Toggle Island Info button on the ATLAS map
    • Discovery on the map now temporarily disappear beyond a certain zoon distance on the map (zooming back in will have them reappear)
    • Important: Claim Flags now have a maximum height limit when being placed. Claim Flags that were previously placed which exceed this limit will indicate as such on the HUD. Those which exceed the limit will be able to place a 2nd claim flag in a viable location. This will destroy your old flag and drop it's entire inventory into a loot cache (2 hour expiration time) on the ground. Next Wednesday, we'll be deploying an update which will force destroy any legacy flags which exceed the height limit. The limit is 4k units above sea level which is approximately 16/17 walls and only admins or above will be able to replace the flag.
    • New configurable ini setting for Claim Flag height limit [/script/shootergame.shootergamemode]
      MaxSettlementFlagZ=4000
      // you can set this number to 999999 to have no height restrictions.

    Patchversion: 209.1



    Releasestatus: released



    • Added activate sail turning as a keybind (default: Left Shift)
    • Crew Members will now take food/gold from the following structures in this priority (it goes to the 2nd/3rd if the first does not have gold).

               Crew on Land:

    1st priority: Resource Box and Food larder

    2nd priority: Silo

    3rd priority: Claim Flags

             Crew on Fully Anchored Boats:

    1st priority: Silo

    2nd priority: Claim Flags

    3rd priority: Resource Box and Food larder

    • New placeable land structure 'Crew Resources Silo' which allows storage of food and gold to feed crew. Note this will also function on lawless servers, but to do so we've had to have them display island points on the map, however they still will not be able to be claimed.
    • New option on claim flag which allows turning off crew gold and food payment
    • Fixed an edge case which allowed you to fire cannons through walls
    • Fixed a bug where Crew was taking gold/food from a flag before they took it from a resource box/larder when dealing with Crew on Land.
    • Fixed a bug which prevented harvesting on creatures/using tools in Singleplayer
    • Fixed a bug which would sometimes cause the resource override to stop functioning, therefore provide players with a different resource than intended

    Patchversion: 208.21



    Status: released


    • Fixed a bug which would cause players to be stuck when unmounting creatures
    • Cleared up the pinwheel text on Claim Flags, so they now indicate what it'll be changed to.

    Time for a little apology from this end.


    Summer is a quite busy season for me and therefore I can't keep up with all the patch notes that are being released by Grapeshot.

    In addition Dakhar is moving and is without internet for the upcoming week at least.


    I'll try catch up on the notes and also on the translations.


    thanks for your understanding and patience




    Patchversion: 208.1



    Status: released 


    • Single Player Beta Mode
      Note: Whilst not a formal system, Singleplayer users can play on any world json they want, by just replacing these files:
      \ShooterGame\ServerGrid.json
      \ShooterGame\ServerGrid\
      (the map images)
    • When doing so, please back up your SavedAtlasLocal folder, and then delete your save data using the in-game save delete button.
    • Claim Flags now have a toggleable setting in Settlements mode which allows Settlement owners to choose whether to pay and feed the NPC Crew for allies or everyone settled on the island. This will be displayed in the top-right hand corner HUD. A single + means ally crew will take gold/food from claim flags. ++ means everyone will take gold/food from the claim flag. A lack of + means that only the settlement owner's crew will be able to take good/food from claim flags.
    • Magic Mythos is now active for the weekend: 2x bonus rates for Harvesting, Taming, XP and Gold!
    • Future proofing landscape optimization (large patch)


    Just some further information on the update size, the reason it is so large is because a technical change went in place to improve

    the logic surrounding landscapes (not related to single player). Something we plan to improve more on in the future.

    This optimization will basically allow us to reduce the current install size of the game by, hopefully, ~33%.

    The way it works in technical terms is that all the landscape variants of the same shape will use one map, with material variants,

    rather than each having a redundant copy of the large maps themselves. This means we won't have to have all those additional

    copies, thus reducing the effective size of landscapes (which together comprise over 50% of the game's install size)

    Patchversion: 207.8 und 207.81



    Status: released


    207.81

    • Improved third person view offset so that it now positions at the average head height rather than the center of the character's capsule. This should improve how it feels when the camera is brushed up against a collision in the world.

    • Melee Combat, fixing two bugs related to blocking:
      • Setting traces to use zero instead of complex collision groups on clients so that clients properly see hits
      • Fixing mistaken/unclear orderings for block determination that led to servers failing to correctly identify and pass along a block if the client-based block didn't succeed (such as in the cases where the client couldn't land a hit due to the collision group)
    • Added a "turn off" option to ballista and catapult
    • Fixed floating characters on standable tames such as elephants
    • Fixed a bug where clients would see characters that had been grapple pulled off tame still move with their tames as if they were mounted resulting in a weird flight-like state.
