Quality of life and new content Update 1.08



Hey guys!

Finally, it’s time for the big Update! We did a lot of work this time, and positive improvements have touched upon a lot of the game aspects. Playing ATOM is now genuinely more comfortable. The inventory management is easier, the interface in general is more intuitive, the follower mechanics have more options, the re-balancing of weapons made combat more dynamic and interesting, especially during the new random encounters.
And of course we added a lot of new NPCs, quests and maps for you to test all of the new features.

Here is a compact list of changes:
  • Quality of life improvements - your recommendations were heard and implemented in the new inventory and follower systems;
  • Improved English translation thanks to you, our players, and a wonderful writer Scott Hamm who worked on such titles as “Age of Decadence” and “Battle Brothers”;
  • Full mod support - we promised and we delivered;
  • Better balance and weapon stats;
  • Changes into the ability tree;
  • New weapons;
  • New AI features;
  • New follower settings including friendly fire settings;
  • New graphic effects;
  • New graphic elements (icons, portraits, items, in-game art);
  • New sounds for items and weapons;
  • New animations, including a special martial arts move you may learn;
  • New item with the ability to reset your stats and skills;
  • Dozens of new characters with unique dialogues, portraits and quests;
  • A quest line that can be tackled by joining any one of the two new factions;
  • New maps;
  • New random encounters;
  • Improved game stability;
  • Option to change the item highlight color;
  • New achievements;
  • Tons of bug fixes;

We really hope you enjoy playing this new version, and we’ll be eagerly awaiting your feedback.
Thank you… And let there be ATOM!

P.S.: We will write a comprehensive manual for mod makers in the near future. So stay tuned for that!

1.0.8 Balance Changes


Hey guys!

As promised, it’s now time to introduce you to the changes in the combat system balance. These changes were made to make the system look more linear and thus more understandable, without changing it so much you’d have to restart the game.

So, what changed?

Pistols and SMGs

This branch was changed by lowering the AP needed for shooting, so that low DEX characters would have a better time using the weapons. Also, we made the minimum damage higher.

Let’s look at some examples. The last three numbers in each example mean AP cost for a simple shot, an aimed shot, and for the reload.

Nagant - 6-9 DAM, 3 4 3 AP
TT - 8-14 DAM, 4 5 2 AP
M-712 7-13 DAM, 4 5 3 AP, and 6 for the burst.

Mark-19 and Polyak weapons also got a higher chance to stun - 10% and 6% respectively. However, since Polyak’s projectile contains 5 projectiles in one shot, the actual stun chance is 30%.

SMGs like PPS-43 and Scorpion got the biggest changes. First of all, they now operate on Machine Gun rules and have a Short and Long burst options instead of single shots. This makes the DPS higher. We also balanced this new addition by lowering the active distance and AP, while making minimum damage a bit higher.

PPS-43 - 7-14 DAM, 5 AP for short burst, 6 for long burst, 3 for reload.
Scorpion - 8-12 DAM, 3 4 4 AP.

Shotguns and rifles

Custom made weapons of this category now ask for less AP per shot, but take more to reload. The sawed off shotgun lost single shot ability, but double barrel shot now costs 4 AP. Izh lost some effective distance, but a single shot now costs 4 AP. Also, as a cherry on top, all 12 cal weapons now have a chance to stun.

Hunting rifle - 8-10 DAM, 3 4 3 AP
Hunting shotgun - 7-13 DAM, 4 5 3 AP, 16/18 distance.

SVD is no longer a low damage Remington clone and now costs less to fire, PTRD lost an aimed shot ability, but its damage still makes it the deadliest rifle.

SVD - 12-23 DAM, 5 5 3 AP
PTRD - 25-45 DAM 7 3 AP

Assault rifles and machine guns

Changes in this branch mostly concern the AK family. AKS74U is now in the middle grounds between an assault rifle and an SMG, having less AP cost and damage. AK-47 now has 5 bullets in a burst and has a stun chance.

AKS74U - 8-13 DAM 3 4 5 3 AP
AK-47 - 9-19 DAM, 5 6 7 3 AP, 3% stun chance (15% in burst).

We are still working on changing Machine guns, but they will probably have less AP cost.

Shields

Large penalties for use and peculiar mechanics made most players enjoy shields less than we wanted them to, so we made the mechanics pretty much straight forward and penalties much lower. These are also currently being tested out, but you will see the results as soon as 1.08 hits.

We really value your opinions on the changes. Thank you all in advance.

With kind regards, Atom Team

About This Game

In 1986 both the Soviet Union and the Western Bloc were destroyed in mutual nuclear bombings. You are one of the survivors of the nuclear Holocaust. Your mission - to explore the wild and wondrous world of the Soviet Wasteland. To earn your place under the sun.

• Many hours of gameplay on all sorts of locations. Meet the other survivors in a brave new settlement, built from the dust of the old world. Venture into the wilds, where mutated creatures and savage bandits lurk. Work out the secrets of an old military bunker. Or simply lose yourself, fishing at a scenic pond...

• Random encounters with the dwellers of the Soviet Wasteland - both friendly and dangerous. Sometimes all at the same time...
