The latest update for pirating survival sandbox Atlas has armored docks and trade changes. That reads quite a bit like the last update made to the game, but this one is notably different, owing to the fact that it’s brought a smaller armored dock and made some minor adjustments to trade that (hopefully) aren’t going to break things.
Specifically, the small armored dock can protect Schooners and Sloops, with a beefy 20M HP and an upkeep cost of 50 gold every 24 hours. The large armored dock has been adjusted as well, ramping up its HP total from 300K to 30M and a lowered 150 gold upkeep cost. Armored docks have also gotten a few other overall adjustments like stopping damage to NPCs and Tames on protected ships and a requirement for ships to not have taken or received damage for five minutes before receiving protection from an armored dock.
As for trade, this update now offers paged lists for market searches in an effort to alleviate performance hits when players open a market. Items that can be traded have also been expanded, with a number of resource types, consumables, and other items like cannon balls and gunpowder.
It should be noted that this latest update reportedly also introduced a crashing bug associated with armored docks, but that matter appears to have cleared up. It’s just not an Atlas update without some crashtasticness, it seems, which is why the patch notes close with a disclaimer about early access.
