Basic Information[]


Merchant ships move around the map following pre-set ship lanes.


Merchant ships are small ships that have paddlewheels for propulsion that can be seen on the open ocean.


There will be two vendors on the ship, the Cosmetics Vendor and the Commodities Vendor letting you buy and exchange resources and items

Item Cost Description
Drake Token 40,000x Gold Coin.png Gold Coin Put this magical artifact item slot and use it when the appropriate creature is near-death to instantly bend that creature to your will. However, the creature´s lifespan will be severely limited as a result!
Coloring/Dyes 1x Gold Coin.png Gold Coin Colorings currently act like a wood stain, applying a tint but leaving the natural color and texture visible. ATLAS promotional material suggests that bolder colorings may be planned. Note that not all colorings have been fully implemented during early access.
Cosmetics 100-1000 Gold Coin.png Gold Coin Officer's Hat, Officer Shirt, Officer Boots, Officer Pants, Officer Gloves, and others, see the Cosmetics page for more items

One of the two NPC's will also sell most types of Resources. The price to purchase 30 of a resource is 30 of the same kind of Resource plus 23 Gold Coins.

E.g. You could purchase 30 Cobalt at a cost of 30 Iron and 23 Gold Coins



Merchant ships currently cannot be destroyed and do not attack.
