The World is Shrinking!!!

  • Has anyone noticed that the map references of all the islands have changed? Either the world has got smaller, or the map has been made a little bit bigger!

    Crescent Isle and Mermaids Hideaway used to be in column B. Now they are in column C. Liars Backbone is in column X rather than Y.

    Similarly, Smugglers Bay and Marauders Arch have moved down, from row 2, to row 3. And, Sharkbait Cove, Booty Isle, and Devils Ridge have all moved up a row.

    The effect is that no island is less than two grid lines from the Devils Shroud (Red Sea) anymore: None in columns A, B, Y or Z; nor in rows 1, 2, 25 and 26.

    When did this happen? More importantly, why was it not mentioned in any Patch Release Notes?

    I was looting at lost gold fort and i was attacked by a skeleton. I have never seen a skeleton on the non-active forts until tonight.

  • @surveyorpete I didn't noticed, but yeah I remember we're mermaids was before... Could this be slowly adapting for forsaken shores? Although it might be waaaay to early for that...

  • @lord-danielw

    I thought that. I heard that Forsaken Shores would be reached by sailing off the current map, perhaps through a portal or some such thing, maybe in one corner. So perhaps the extra room has been allowed to avoid ships stumbling into it by accident.

  • @lord-danielw he is a surveyor.
    Or maybe, he is the map maker and wanted us to notice his handy work.

    Don't they hint at ingame changes to look out for in the pirate times?

  • @lord-danielw These are more likely performance improvements for Cursed Sails.
