Season 10 for ATLAS is now underway, and with it is a huge update that brings a lot of new features. One of the most interesting things added in Patch v551.2 is the ability for players to put their ships in a bottle.

Basically, players can shrink their ships and store them in special bottles. To do this, they need to craft two things: the Ship Bottle Station and the Ship Bottle. Both of these are available at the Smithy after players have learned the Master Shipwright skill.

The Ship Bottle Station can only be used in the shipyard. Inside this thing’s UI are the Ship Bottles that players have crafted. Interacting with these bottles will offer players a few options, such as Bottle, Duplicate, and Recover.

“Bottle” is an option that takes the player’s vessel currently anchored in the shipyard and transfers it inside the bottle. This action requires 50 Solidified Essence.

Those who have enough Solidified Essences and an empty bottle can choose to duplicate the ship, creating a perfect copy of the original to be placed inside the bottle.

And lastly, the “Recover” option is just a way to restore the ship back to where it was anchored. The same is true for duplicates as well.

In addition, Patch v551.2 has kickstarted the reconstruction of Sea Forts in ATLAS. The new Sea Forts are heavily fortified and come with updated visuals. They are currently found only in Carribia, but additional Sea Forts will be introduced in the future.
