    Ahoy mateys 🌊

    Sooo looking forward to this game. See you out on the waters. Hopefully I run into one of you!
  7. Hey folks.. I am making using of this fan created community forum to post my way of how to create my own locally hosted (ON YOUR PC) server that everyone can join. Do i need SteamCMD? First of all, no, you don't need SteamCMD. As long as you want to host the Server on the same PC as you are playing on, you can just use the already available Server in the GameDirectory. Creating the Server! Where can i find my "ShootGameServer.exe" file? This file is located in this folder: "\steamapps\common\Atlas\ShooterGame\Binaries\Win64" The "steamapps" folder, should be in the Steam folder and location you have installed your Steam. Setting up the .bat file! So, we want to create a bat file to Start the ShooterGameServer.exe and put in some commands. You should create this in the Folder mentioned above! (In the same folder where the .exe is). Right click in the folder and create a new Text Document. Name it what you want. I named it "StartServer". Open it up and copy the following: start ShooterGameServer.exe TheIsland?QueryPort=27015?SessionName=eXi?MaxPlayers=5?listen?ServerPassword=YOURSERVERPASSWORD?ServerAdminPassword=YOURADMINPASSWORD -nosteamclient -game -server -log Make sure that you change the capslock texts: > YOURSERVERNAME: This is the name of your Server in all lists etc. > YOURSERVERPASSWORD: This is the Password that you need to join the server. > YOURADMINPASSWORD: This is the Password a Player needs to type into the console to use cheat/admin commands. > MaxPlayers: This is the amount of Players that are allowed to connect to the Server. Once you finished setting this up, go to "File->Save As" in your Text Editor and save the file like this: "YourFileName.bat" Make sure you also include the " at the beginning and end. Setting up the config file! I don't really know if this is overdoing it, but we will also put settings into the config file. Where can i find that file? "steamapps\common\Atlas\ShooterGame\Saved\Config\WindowsServer" and it is called "GameUserSettings". My whole file looks like this: [/Script/ShooterGame.ShooterGameUserSettings] MasterAudioVolume=1.000000 MusicAudioVolume=1.000000 SFXAudioVolume=1.000000 CameraShakeScale=1.000000 bFirstPersonRiding=False bThirdPersonPlayer=False bShowStatusNotificationMessages=True TrueSkyQuality=0.270000 FOVMultiplier=1.000000 GroundClutterDensity=1.000000 bFilmGrain=False bMotionBlur=True bUseDFAO=True bUseSSAO=True bShowChatBox=True bCameraViewBob=True bInvertLookY=False bFloatingNames=True bChatBubbles=True bHideServerInfo=False bJoinNotifications=False bCraftablesShowAllItems=True LookLeftRightSensitivity=1.000000 LookUpDownSensitivity=1.000000 GraphicsQuality=2 ActiveLingeringWorldTiles=10 bUseVSync=False ResolutionSizeX=1280 ResolutionSizeY=720 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeX=1280 LastUserConfirmedResolutionSizeY=720 WindowPosX=-1 WindowPosY=-1 bUseDesktopResolutionForFullscreen=False FullscreenMode=2 LastConfirmedFullscreenMode=2 Version=5 [ScalabilityGroups] sg.ResolutionQuality=100 sg.ViewDistanceQuality=3 sg.AntiAliasingQuality=3 sg.ShadowQuality=3 sg.PostProcessQuality=3 sg.TextureQuality=3 sg.EffectsQuality=3 sg.TrueSkyQuality=3 sg.GroundClutterQuality=3 sg.IBLQuality=1 sg.HeightFieldShadowQuality=3 [AdminPassword] ServerAdminPassword=YOURADMINPASSWORD ServerPassword=YOURSERVERPASSWORD [/Script/Engine.GameSession] MaxPlayers=5 [ServerSettings] ShowMapPlayerLocation=True ServerHardcore=False GlobalVoiceChat=False ProximityChat=False NoTributeDownloads=False AllowThirdPersonPlayer=False AlwaysNotifyPlayerLeft=False DontAlwaysNotifyPlayerJoined=True ServerPVE=False ServerCrosshair=True ServerForceNoHUD=False DifficultyOffset=0 The important part is the lower half: (Node, it could be, that the places, where you need to write the Passwords, are changing throughout the different updates. Also the whole command can change. Make sure to check here or the Steam Forums, to have the newest information after an update!) [AdminPassword] ServerAdminPassword=YOURADMINPASSWORD ServerPassword=YOURSERVERPASSWORD [/Script/Engine.GameSession] MaxPlayers=5 [ServerSettings] ShowMapPlayerLocation=True ServerHardcore=False GlobalVoiceChat=False ProximityChat=False NoTributeDownloads=False AllowThirdPersonPlayer=False AlwaysNotifyPlayerLeft=False DontAlwaysNotifyPlayerJoined=True ServerPVE=False ServerCrosshair=True ServerForceNoHUD=False DifficultyOffset=0 Make sure that the upper half isn't touched. This could be different on our PCs. Here again, change the CAPSLOCK parts the same way you did in the .bat file. The rest of the settings can be changed, but we will leave them for now! Save the file again. Hosting the Server! Check your Ports! Make sure that you open the ports 27015 and 7777 on both your router and your Windows Firewall! This is important, but i can't really help here, since this depends on the router you are using. Starting the Server! Move back to the .bat File folder and double click the .bat file. This should create a small CMD window after a few seconds, which looks like this and will always stay like this: With this, the Server is running. It will take a few MINUTES for it to be fully registered with the Atlas master server to show up in the Server Lists. Joining the Server! Others Joining the Server! First of all, make sure that the Server is running by doing the following: Open up your main Steam window and open the upper left tab called "View". There should be a point called "Server" which opens the good old server browser from Steam. Go to "LAN" and select Atlas as a Game in the lower left filter. Refresh the List until you see your Server, this can take some time. And yes, you are seeing your own Server as a LAN Server. We will get to this in a sec. As soon as you see the Server, you know it is up and running! After you see your own Server in the Lan List, you can find your server using one of the following third party resources: - web browser for Atlas servers In the upper right search field, search for your Server, either by the Name you took for it or by using your IP (not the local one, use "" to find out what your IP is). At least THERE you should find it. Otherwise there is something fishy with the Ports i guess. If you found it, click on it and send your friends the link to your Server. Tell them to close the Game and click on the IP. Clicking on the IP will let them Connect to the Server. This is how my friend joined my Server and it worked. It could also work through the normal UNOFFICIAL Server List or the Steam Internet Server List, but this is how it worked for us. Joining the Server yourself! (Note: It seems like you only need to do this once. After that, my server always appears in the "MySurvivors" list directly!) This is the tricky part, but I found a workaround to solve this: Once the Server shows up in LAN, start your game. Move to the ServerList and search for "UNOFFICIAL" Servers and make sure you hit the "Password Protected Server" thingy. Let the Search finish and make sure that you CAN'T SEE the server in this list. Then change the search filter from "UNOFFICIAL" to "MY CHARACTERS". Waiting a few seconds and you should see your own server. Admin Commands and additional Server Settings! You can find a list of admin commands (that you can type in through the console) and Server Settings here. I tested things like "cheat god" or "cheat fly" and they are working. Also the "MapPlayerLocation=True" in the bat file and the config file seems to work. Sadly not the Crosshair. To add these commands to the bat file: Behind the last "Password=YOURADMINPASSWORD" section, add something like this: ?ShowMapPlayerLocation=True No space between this and the Password (the ? is important), but a space between the rest "-nosteamclient....". Troubleshooting! How to update my SteamCMD Server after Atlas was updated? Go ahead and launch SteamCMD again. Login again like you did the time you installed the Server. Make sure that you, again, select the Install Directory by typing: force_install_dir YOUSERVERDIRECTORY And example would be: force_install_dir C:\AtlasServer Now type in the following: app_update 123456 validate Which will update the Server App. I can't find my own Server in the List? First of all, which list? If you can't find it in the LAN list, make sure that you at least waited 5 minutes. Could even take more time. The Server needs time to register with the Master Server from Atlas. If it is still not visible, check the Settings and .bat file again. Maybe you misstyped something. Also make sure that your Ports are forwarded! If you can't find it in the UNOFFICIAL list inside of the game, this is normal. You won't find it yourself. You still need to search for it with the correct filter settings (Check Password Secured Servers if needed), although it won't find the Server. This is a work around for Server Hosts, because they can't find their own Server without. After you received the UNOFFICIAL Server list, switch the Filter from UNOFFICIAL to My Survivors. After a few seconds the Server should show up. If not, please check the whole tutorial and make sure that everything is running to this point. If everything seems correct, but the Server is not showing up, i guess you still have problems with your Ports. Check if others can find and join your server (the normal way. They don't need the workaround). Additional Information! This is how it works for me. I hope it will do the same for you. I can't really give your support here, since i'm not a developer of this game. Please be nice to each other and the Devs, and let us enjoy this awesome game!
  8. Looks like we'll be sailing the open seas a bit earlier than anticipated. Atlas is coming to Steam on December 13th! ABOUT THIS GAME From the creators of ARK: Survival Evolved comes ATLAS - a massively multiplayer first-and-third-person fantasy pirate adventure. ATLAS will host up to 40,000 players exploring the same Globe simultaneously, with an unprecedented scale of cooperation and conflict! Stake your claim in this endless open world as you conquer territory, construct ships, search for buried treasure, assemble forts, plunder settlements and hire crew to join your powerful growing armada. Start small then expand your spheres of influence from a small island, up to an unstoppable pirate empire that spans across the oceans. Wage battle against enemy fleets as you singlehandedly can command large ships of war using the captaining system (or divide up to the responsibilities among your trusted lieutenants), or take control of any weapon directly with your own character. Dive deep into the briny water to explore permanent sunken wrecks and recover salvage, unearth the loot from procedurally-generated Treasure Maps and challenge zones, or complete challenging main questlines. Team up with other aspiring adventurers and sail into the vast ocean to discover new lands rich with region-specific elements, tame exotic natural and mythical creatures, raid forgotten tombs, confront powerful ancient gods and even build and administer your own colonies, cities, and civilizations to dominate the ATLAS in this ultimate quest for fortune and glory!MMO On the Grandest ScalePhysically sail in real-time across throughout the vast oceans with the proprietary server network technology. Explorers will voyage to over 700 unique landmasses across 45,000 square kilometers, with thousands of Discovery Zones, and ten distinct world regions each having their own unique resources, creatures, secrets, and environment hazards!Construct the Ship of Your Dreams, Plank by Plank!Build drydocks and start with a dinghy rowboat, basic raft, tiny sloop or nimble schooner, moving on up to your own versatile brigantine or titanic galleon capable of transporting hundreds of crew and extensive cargo. Name your ship in big bold letters, paint and copy your own pirate flag and custom-place all the pieces of your ship -- which sails and where, planks and gunports, every single structure piece has a physical Weight and Material -- to function exactly how you want.Captain your Crew!Recruit real players and AI crew from freeports or rescue seasoned crew from destroyed “Army of the Damned” shipwrecks to man distinct stations on your boat! Set sail and explore the ATLAS with them to gain experience and level up their stats or gear, as well as levelling your Ship. Your crew are versatile! Whether on land, or ship, or even riding behind your animal companions on emplacements, they can man weapons of all kinds-- cannons, swivel guns, siege engines, turrets, and even gigantic mortars, many with dynamically swappable ammo types including grapeshot, chainshot, spikeshot, liquid fire, and more! Instruct them to board enemy ships and help you conquer the seas! Keep their stomachs full and their pockets full of gold lest you want a mutiny in your hands! Take on the Captain’s Wheel or divide up the command responsibilities via Lieutenant Podiums to direct the Ship’s assignable weapon systems, sails, and stations, including standing-orders or manual grouped fire. Or, walk up to any station and take control of it yourself!Pirate PVP to the LimitEverything is up for grabs including player’s ships, their crew, their pets, their forts, their land, and their booty. If you can get your hands on it, you can take it. A ship’s permanent logbook tells the tale of their legendary travel, exploits and ownership. Be the Hero or Villain you were meant to beMMO-scale character progression systems include, at launch, over 15 Disciplines with over 300 Skills, in a vast unlockable tree. New "Feat" system allows for active and passive bindable character abilities, while new stat-buff system allows innumerable abstract statistics to be modified by Skills, Items, and Armor. And now, everything has scalable stats, including structures, and can be progressively Upgraded!This is Who You AreExtensive character visual customization enables an endless range of realistic (and not-so-realistic) characters, with a vast array of sliders, morphs, muscle tones, and tweakable values. You can even per-pixel design your own permanent tattoos (and then draw warpaint on top of that too!). If someone exists in the real world, they should be creatable in ATLAS! Best-in-class dynamic hair growth and real-time aging systems allow you to get old and... pass on your legacy? (Or find a fountain of youth!).Endless AdventureFull Quest and Waypoint systems, with sub-quests and rewards, for major goals -- while procedural treasure maps and challenge zones also ensure there's always something new to find out over the horizon. Intense Action Tactical melee combat systems with blocks, parries, dodges, character motion, optional shields, stunning and strength-varying strikes, directional attacks, and more for use in either first or third person perspectives. Fists, swords, maces, blackjacks, daggers, and much more give you tremendous options to pick the right weapon for the job. Meanwhile, period period-appropriate-weaponry with skill-based active reload systems include flintlock pistols, muskets, blunderbuss, and more -- just be sure to keep your powder dry!Claim What's Yours Form a company, claim territory and apply taxation and behavior rules to that which you own: be a benevolent governor, a feudal lord, or a ruthless dictator. Territory ownership is visualized on your dynamic zoomable World Map, with Fog of War obscuring uncharted regions and Shroud of War hiding enemy territories out of sight range. Contest other government's ownership of land, structures, or ships to expand your empire! The top large-scale Spheres of Influence on the Official ATLAS' are visualized in real-time on the website. Design your own custom flag per-pixel to apply to your claims, to be famous (or infamous)!Creatures Great and Small More than 50 creatures at launch varying from breedable utilitarian farm animals & shoulder mounted parrots and monkeys that offer unique buffs, all the way to magical mermaids and gigantic sea monsters of legend. Creatures can be found in their logical regions, but take skill and tactics to tame using new mechanics, while also gaining the most benefit and fertility from their natural biomes. Ferry these temperamental creatures across the vast oceans in a virtual Noah's Ark to trade in exotic locales.Freeports to Meet & GreetLevel-capped starter zones allow you to learn the ropes and meet new players in a safe space before you venture out into the great unknown. Where the wind and destiny takes you beyond that, is up to the gods!Build Your Empire Overhauled building systems include automatic foundational elevation adjustment, dynamic tile type swapping, improved snap detection & previewing, integrated plumbing systems, per-pixel-paintable everything, beast-of-burden harness attachments for field-gun and carriages, and much more! Survival systems newly include, among other aspects, Vitamins benefits and deficiencies, with recipe & cooking skills and varying ingredient qualities.Powerful Mod and Server Functionalities Want to build a World War II Spitfire? Or a Flying Fortress bomber with fully walkable interior and gun stations, carrying troops loaded with machine guns and rocket launchers? How about a Tank? An Aircraft Carrier to play out the Battle of Midway on an expansive scale? How about an Arcadian Steampunk Airship floating through a cloud-world? These examples and much more are provided with the ATLAS Dev Kit, where you can make effectively create whatever large-scale MMO action game you want to see happen, all supported by the database-driven network technology that powers ATLAS. Unofficial ATLAS' can be of any size and configuration, while a visual map tool lets server hosts layout their own complete custom world of islands, continents, terrain features, spawns, resources, hazards, underwater zones, dynamic weather, biome configurations, ecology, and an infinite number of other configurable features -- all dynamically streamed to the client during gameplay. The possibilities are endless!Far, Far MoreStay tuned for more details on the extensive features and content of ATLAS. This brief sampling is just the tip of the iceberg (though be sure to watch out for those in the polar regions, as they're extremely dangerous to ship hulls!!).A Brief History of ATLASLong-ago, far above the watery world of ATLAS there once existed a magic-powered “Golden Age”-- where great Empires of the Sky lived at peace alongside magical creatures, flourishing upon floating continents above the clouds, all powered by a magical source of energy known as the Heart of the Goddess, granted by the powerful beings who dwell in the stars beyond. However, a powerful warlord known as Xevos sought to unite the human civilizations over the magickind, and launched a war that broke the Heart into pieces, unleashing a wave of destruction that shattered the floating landmasses and plunged them into the waters below. Many generations later, as living memory of the “Sundering” has faded into legend and the once-plentiful magical energy has long since dissipated, descendants of the protectors of the Heart of the Goddess -- known as “Pathfinders” -- emerge from their provincial oceanic lives to explore the new continents and islands, and seek out the power they may yet contain. Across the vast new world they’ll encounter hostile creatures, technological remnants of the Golden Age past, and ultimately the undying spirit of Xevos himself and his soulless “Army of the Damned”, still intent on recovering the pieces of the Heart of the Goddess to raise the continents once again under his vision.If the latest generation of Pathfinders can outwit and outgun Xevos and his legions, and recover the Heart pieces for themselves, they will be faced with the very same choice: whether to attempt to restore the old world, or build a new better one…
