Watch at: 00:00 / 00:00:20welcome to Atlas this is survival Boband I have just spawned it on a newisland we are in my let's play we'restarting season twoI'm excited I just made this characterhe's got really big ears I could nottell that cuz he had hair what happensmaking him but but yeah let's go haveWatch at: 00:20 / 00:40some fun this is as I said this isseason two it's gonna be a let's playwe're gonna kind of start off we'regonna start off with more of a tutorialstuff I've learned a lot since seasonone I bought this game for Xbox I amplaying on xbox and I bought it inOctober day or two after it releasedWatch at: 00:40 / 01:00started my let's play right after thatand a lot of that was me learning alongthe way I picked up a lot do not claimto know everything but I definitelylearned how to survive and kind of getgoing I've got some ideas for thisseason I want to head to a differentpart of the map than I was last time andWatch at: 01:00 / 01:20really kind of progress a lot faster soin the beginning of this game if you'renew to the game just just like a lot ofsurvival games you start off by kind ofpunching stuff we're on em7 to startthere's my map and my compass alrightand this is my inventoryWatch at: 01:20 / 01:40we've got just the basic stuff I'm on astarter island which is called a freeport and the free port you get basicgeneric resources wood that rocks fiberas you get out into the other islandsyou're gonna get more different types ofresources that are gonna be moreWatch at: 01:40 / 02:00specific so I do have the rates turnedup on this a little bit because tryingto progress in the game and I have alife got other stuff going on that Icannot play this 24/7 and no life at soI am in a single-player world if youhaven't figured that out this is justWatch at: 02:00 / 02:20the solar player by myself I may havesome friends come in and join me at somepoint I don't know but we will see thekind of episodes the way I want to dothem as I want to try to keep them maybe20thirty minutes I always feel longer thanthat so I'll probably be more like 3040minutes we'll see but I'm excited to toWatch at: 02:20 / 02:40start a new season after kind of knowingwhat I'm doing now I'll teach you guyswhat I know along the way and I'd loveto hear your input and feedback on stuffthat you know as well that you can helpme with but in the beginning we just gotto kind of level up because we don'tknow how to do anything yet there we gothat's what I was waiting for so for theWatch at: 02:40 / 03:00level up I'm going to start off withwait so if you're familiar with arcwhich is a super popular game or if youplay doubtless before you know that youdon't start off with a hundred in everylevel like you do an arc but we're gonnacrank up the weight and then we're gonnalearn skills so you don't learnWatch at: 03:00 / 03:20individual things you learn a set ofthings so we need to start withsurvivalism you see at the bottom lefthand corner here says we have eightpoints available gonna start off withthe basics that's going to teach us sometools tools of the trade is going to getus a spear which we need to survive weWatch at: 03:20 / 03:40got six points less let's do somearchery what do we got constructionmercantilism unlock those and then we'llget Waterkeeper for good measure so nowwe can build some stuff let's go aheadand do that we've got the folder viewWatch at: 03:40 / 04:00which I usually do once I get a littlebit further along than the beginningwe'll just kind of start with thiscrap the Hat cuz we can will craft a picand then we will get to it so if you'reon the Xbox you double tap the a buttonand it'll throw it into your first openWatch at: 04:00 / 04:20inventory slot or if it's armored it'llthrow it on the right spot you do have acool-down period for this so thecooldown period is just when you throwit on your hotbar how quickly musicalright so now we've got some Flint weshould be able to build a hatchet let'sWatch at: 04:20 / 04:40do that and then let's build we've gotone spear we need some more wood we'llget a torch I haven't really messed withthe rates of things well I missed whatthe harvest rates is the main thing andthen the day and night cycle I've messedwith that as well so I've got the dayslonger the nights shorter just forWatch at: 04:40 / 05:00filming and just for more enjoyment tobe honest with you night schoolI definitely don't want to take thatpart out of the game but I don't want itto be the whole game I don't want it tobe equal to the day so let's get somemore Spears well go ahead and craft allof those I'm sure I will use them sayWatch at: 05:00 / 05:20now that I think about it let's go aheadand move this you're here let's put thisI usually put it here is that rightand I'll put the pic here I think it'senough Spears five will do five will dous so early game if you want to level upWatch at: 05:20 / 05:40the best thing to do is to kill stuffyou get from what I can tell you get themost XP from killing things so we got acouple pigs over there now these guyswill will not aggro on us if we're justkind of running around but as soon as Ihit one the other ones gonna come for meso I'm not gonna mess with those guysquite yet see what level they are I gotWatch at: 05:40 / 06:00a level 8 in level 28 and they are mateboosted you saw these little heartsabove them looking for something alittle bit easier maybe to start withthere's a piggy there's another piggy soWatch at: 06:00 / 06:20we'll leave you two aloneso in this game of food is a big deal Ileft the food alone I left the wateralone so I am gonna experience that whenyou're playing the multiplayer MMO I'venoticed that as I've done that they kindof take food out of the game they don'treally mess with it too much and theyWatch at: 06:20 / 06:40they just you know when they get hungrythey just die because you get yourhunger back I mean you get your yourfood replenishedso I mentioned food let's talk aboutwater water is a really big deal in theFreeport there is some fresh water righthere in atlasit is a pirate game so we're on IslandsWatch at: 06:40 / 07:00and we are surrounded obviously by oceannow you cannot drink ocean water in thisgame unlike an arc where you can drinkany water but here you can't so let'ssee can I make now I need to get someyou get some hide so I can craft a waterWatch at: 07:00 / 07:20skin so that's why I was looking forsomething to kill I've got lots ofdifferent resources here we're gonnaspend a set or two on the starter islandjust getting geared up and ready to gothen we will head out probably spendsome time at sea because I wanna I wantWatch at: 07:20 / 07:40to get pretty far away from where we arerightnow and go build I want to build in aplace where I can access a lot ofresources fairly close together there'sa bowl over there got parrots all kindsof cool stuff all right so this guylooks like he's by himself let's seewhat lovely is I do have it turned up toWatch at: 07:40 / 08:00difficulty of 1.0 max level level 100Pig I have not you're not my first killbuddy come on I need some skin here wego our sacrificial chicken so you canthrow stuff or you can swipe with theWatch at: 08:00 / 08:20spear and then you can grab your spearout of them when you're done our firstchicken Thank You chicken appreciate itall right so now we got some hide we canbuild a water skin let's go ahead andWatch at: 08:20 / 08:40make two of those and then we'll make alittle bit of armor as well like somepants make a shirt make some shoes andsome gloves all right we got it all sowe'll let that go now when you'recrafting you notice I'm walking slow nowcuz I'm crafting stuff while I'm walkingsoWatch at: 08:40 / 09:00can't really move too fast while you'recrafting so obviously you gotta takethat into consideration so the foodthing I mentioned so I'm running now soI'm done crafting so the food thing Imentioned you got four different typesof food you've got fruits vegetablesWatch at: 09:00 / 09:20meat and fish obviously fishes meat aswell but red meat and fish meat I guessand we got red meat from the from thechicken I killed so we got that we'veWatch at: 09:20 / 09:40got the fruits from the berries and thenthis orange thing turmeric however yousay that is a vegetable as well so we'vegot everything but the fish we're gonnahave to jump in the water real quick andfind some fish so we can keep that goingI'm just gonna throw that on my hotbarso I can throw it down we'll throw thattorch on the hotbar as well and throwWatch at: 09:40 / 10:00that on there just for funsies as wellalright so that is full let's get thisone full got it so we got some water gotsome food we're off to a good start hereWatch at: 10:00 / 10:20let's go get some fish we'll run overhere jump in the ocean and do a littlebit of spearfishing hey Peggy sodefinitely contain creatures in thisgame and that's a big part of it it'snot quite as important as it is in arcWatch at: 10:20 / 10:40The Taming and that is the new chickenso I think I've got my stuff in thewrong slot I'm hitting the wrong buttonsI've got like some natural places whereI put my things and I do not have themin the right spot alright so this goesWatch at: 10:40 / 11:00here this goes hereand then the torch we'll just put thathere and then I usually have someberries in my last slot because when westart taming stuff we're gonna be tamingwith whatever's in the last inventoryslot so I always just keep berries thereWatch at: 11:00 / 11:20all right so let's let's go to swimmingI'm coldso you also have to deal with theelements so we mentioned the food sothis is a true survival game you got todeal with the elements you got to dealwith food and we're in a tropical regionWatch at: 11:20 / 11:40now so it's usually warm but because I'min the water why why is it not deeperI'm looking for a fish so you got todeal with the cold and the heat as welland that can kill you just as much asanything else all right let me put thatWatch at: 11:40 / 12:00away until I find what I'm looking forand apparently I jumped in a really badspot there we gofor some deep water all right here we goWatch at: 12:00 / 12:20here we go here fishy fishy so in theWatch at: 12:20 / 12:40water if you and you got oxygen ofcourse you got to deal with as well ifyou swipe the fish when you kill it thatcrap yeah there's something coming afterme when you kill it you'll grab it Idon't have my I haven't learned myswimming skills yet so I'm super slow inWatch at: 12:40 / 13:00the water okay so as soon as you kill itonce you're swiping at it you just grabit which is niceI'm about the drowned all right checkthat fish out I don't say piggy honkingWatch at: 13:00 / 13:20fish all right so let's release thenlet's chop that bad boy up so when youuse the ax you get more skin or hide orwhatever you whatever it's calleddepending on the animal when you use thepick you get more meat on the animal sokind of like art you're dealing with theWatch at: 13:20 / 13:40same type of stuff the because I've gotthe rates turned up I really pretty muchalways used the the hatchet because Idon't need that much meat see I got 37meat from the

some cooked meat wedon't need any of this rotten stuff sowe just chunk that left trigger what'scool is it cooks both fish and meat atthe same time off too late for one donecooking than the other so

wantthey will go get some cool stuff for youlet's run around the Freeport and checkit out real quick it's really coolunfortunately you cannot go in thesebuildings but they did a good job on thedetail

a boat what's up so wewant to start off with obviously thebest boat so we need 325 fiber and 250Watch at: 23:20 / 23:40wood let's go do thatI think you can get up to level eight onthis before you stop leveling you cannotstay on the Freeport Islands the wholetime you'll just start not gaining XPWatch at: 23:40 / 24:00after a while I think it's lovely thatyou can get to I cannot remember howmuch wood I was supposed to get thesecats are still running around so therocks obviously you come with the axeare gonna get more stone you don't pickand you're gonna get more Flint they doWatch at: 24:00 / 24:20also have metal in them see if I gotenough you cannot remember they dudeyou're gonna give me a boat[Music]gonna give me my first sloopWatch at: 24:20 / 24:40I promise I'll take better care of itthan I did in season one when I'mmissing Huibers crap my bad did not needstaff go over here and get some fibersoh my god I forgot how slow I'm swimmingsorry guysused to swimming a lot did not occur toWatch at: 24:40 / 25:00Bob but that's because I leveled it upso in season one of my let's play it'scalled Atlas versus survival Bob andthat was pretty much won in that let'splay it it made me quit I've gottenpretty far and glitching the game madeWatch at: 25:00 / 25:20me lose a couple of my ships and I justwas it's kind of kind of done with it atthat point so I thought it was a goodopportunity to start fresh I definitelywould have done things differently and Iwill do them differently this time I'mgonna get into a spot of the map where IWatch at: 25:20 / 25:40can get to a lot of different resourcespretty quickly because if you don't ifyou're not careful where you build yourbase you'll spend way too much timesailing and sailing is fun don't get mewrong but you know once you've had yourfun and you're trying to do other stuffsailing can be annoying andtime-consuming all right this should beWatch at: 25:40 / 26:00enough fibersso let's go get us a boatI don't know if you can notice or notWatch at: 26:00 / 26:20but I'm running slower now I think it'sbecause my weight yeah if you see the onthe lower right-hand corner you got theXP and then right below that you see apicture of a weight that is your weightand as that fills up to the top meansyou're heavy and you're not gonna run asfast the nice thing about this thoughunlike an arc unless they fix that Ihaven't played Arkin for

  1. How do you stop from dying from a heatwave. What the hell were they thinking when they added that mechanic? I mean make the guy thirsty don't make him die from it. at least make it so that if you get under a roof it stops it!

    I get the whole vitamins thing and I got some cloth armor. I just keep dying there isn't anything I can do to stop it.

  2. Its funny u did the same thing i did with the bow skill i added it on the first skill tree and wondered where it was in blueprints then realised it had it in a seperate tree lol im gettin the game on xbox one tonight loved ark and this game looks awsome

  3. I'm not sure if this is an editing problem or a weirdness of the in-game audio, but the music cuts in and out a LOT. Does that continue for all of these videos?
