The current ATLAS map therefore looks like a multitude of islands and archipelagos, which could surprise players since no large continent is present in the game. According to the developers, the idea is to favor travel and life on a ship rather than leaving afk players on a large island.
According to the first testers of the game, it would take approximately 42 hours to cross the map diagonally and about 30 hours to go from East to West. Note that the map works more or less like a globe, that is to say that if you completely cross the map, you will appear again on the other side.
The developers designed the map with the idea of having two poles in the North and South and a more tropical region in the center, like the Earth. This shouldn't have a big impact when you launch the game, but it's likely that later ATLAS will have weather changes (and potentially opponents) related to the geographic area you're in.
There is no fog of war on the map but your visibility is limited to what you can see in game. However, it will be possible to improve this vision thanks to your sextant (the navigation tool used at the time) but also via upgrades on your ship.
