Grapeshot Studios’ pirate-themed survival sandbox Atlas got an update. And then part of it broke. And then that broken part got a hotfix bandage to address some of the problem. Allow us to explain.
This past Wednesday saw the game receive a new patch which introduced a new armored dock building and a number of updates to the game’s trade system. When the patch went live, however, the in-game markets and trade functionality started experiencing ping issues, causing trades to effectively not work.
Shortly afterwards, there was a hotfix that restored some trade functionality, but with a few limitations, restricting markets to the same region only and currently showing up to 50 routes. As of this writing, there’s currently no ETA on when trading will open up to include additional regions. But at least the armored docks are working.
