It’s been 3 months since my last update post (and since Beyond was announced!), while we’re all waiting for more news from Hello Games I thought it would be a good time to catch you all up on some of the things that have happened here at the Atlas Codex over the last couple of weeks.
Atlas Hub is now Atlas Codex
Atlas Hub was renamed to the Atlas Codex, a name that should cause less confusion. Read more…
There aren’t many feature updates to report:
- You can now search ships & multi-tools by colour
- You can now set default values for platform, temperature and galaxy to save time when you’re uploading. Access these settings from edit profile -> upload defaults
- Added various missing in-game properties to upload forms
The reason there have been so few updates to the website…
Atlas Codex V2
I’ve spent the last couple of months working on Atlas Codex V2, a major update to the website and community. I can’t commit to a launch date at the moment (as there’s still a lot to do), but I can tease a few of the long-requested features that will be part of the update:
- All new design
- Ability for hub owners to submit and edit their own hubs directly through the website
- Vastly improved navigation of uploaded discoveries, along with quick searches
- Quick upload option
A list of planned features have been added to a new, public roadmap. As well as the above confirmed features it’s likely that a handful of these will also make it into Atlas Codex V2.
I know some of you love seeing the Codex stats, so here’s the latest breakdown:
- 4,588 registered members
- 4,832 uploaded discoveries
- 72 hubs added to the directory
