As you may know, ISO: BLACKWOOD is coming!
ISO: BLACKWOOD is a new handmade standalone map on which everything is present. This map is made in collaboration with a famous modder from ARK: Survival Evolved. According to hearing and saying this map would be larger than a single grid now.
Standalone map: No grid transfers & handmade islands
Since it is a standalone map, we are not dealing with grid transfers as is currently the case. The islands are also handmade and not generated and also have much better graphics.

Community Server Inbound!
As soon as ISO: BLACKWOOD is released, we will also install it on our servers. This will not have any negative consequences for our other ATLAS servers. Since we have downscaled the map at the previous wipe, there is now enough space available to host ISO: BlACKWOOD next to it.
At this moment it is waiting for ISO: BLACKWOOD to be released. We will provide an update as soon as more information is available.
ATLAS: Submarines for all!
We just have installed a mod that will unlock the submarine skill for all our ATLAS players. You still have to collect all resources that needed for the submarine yourself but you no longer have to kill the Kraken to unlock the submarine skill.
The update will take place after 8 p.m. Until that time you can give sugestions for any other small changes that we can implement if necessary. No more mod sugestions, since we want to keep the servers stable.
Community update: Outlaws of the Old West server / ATLAS server improvements
Outlaws of the Old West
As everyone has seen, the number of players from Outlaws of the Old West has shrunk to under 1000 players in total. The number of players on our own Outlaws of the Old West Community Server is currently 0. This has made us to decide to take down our Outlaws of the Old West server.
We will make the server files available on our website this afternoon. There will be also a short guide on how to start and update the server. With this you can start the server on your own PC so that you can continue to play with your old stuff.
I do not offer any further support for router settings such as port forwards etc.
ATLAS performance improvements
You must have noticed that the performance of our ATLAS servers has been disappointing since the mega patch 1.5. Since patch 1.5 from ATLAS, both the ram and the CPU are almost at 100%. It seems as if they have developed 1.5 on a build where the server optimization patches were not included …
Part of the space that has become available will be used to improve the performance of our ATLAS servers.
Also the ATLAS map live map will be functional again later today and there will be a fix for the discovery points. This problem occurred after adding the questline. The old config will be temporarily restored while we are preparing a 2nd attempt to fix the questline: P
With part of the remaining free space there is room for another game. More about this soon!
