QOL Feature: Enter Coordinates


#1

Would it ever be possible to enter coordinates?


#2

Search for an island name or team even.


#3

That would be nice too. But baby steps.


#4

It’s surprising to me that considering how long Atlas/even Beta has been around, functions like this haven’t been implemented. Would make getting around much, much easier.


#5

Dave seems favorably disposed, so hopefully it’s already on the roadmap as it would make coordination much easier.


#6

This is definitely on our roadmap.

I’ve been flogging this horse literally since beta was first released. Map=coordinates, seemed obvious from the start. And a search feature doesn’t seem like too big of a stretch either. But they’ve been saying it was in the works since beta’s earliest release. What was that, a year ago? Aside from general slowness, manoeverability is Atlas’ biggest weakness, imo. Most players stay in a tightly circumscribed area 100% of the time for both those reasons. It’s too hard to find/reach things, which doesn’t encourage people to strike out much beyond home base.

This is probably too ambitious a suggestion (and slightly off-topic), but maybe there could be some way to implement a sort of in-game database of islands/regions/zones etc, allowing you to select from a list and then either issue orders to go there, or just view. Dragging around the map is so unwieldy. It was a different story when it was just the original 52 beta teams, but now it’s hard to get a big picture, birdseye view of the map and establish a practical sense of direction at all.
