    This does not match my own experience. Over the past 2-3 days I have done maybe a dozen planetary surface scan missions, all for a faction currently at peace (and with which I am allied). Payouts have ranged from 200k to 3.1m, and in probably around two-thirds of cases the target has been defended with trespass zone, skimmers and defence turrets. It sounds like OP may just have had a bad patch of RNG.

    Good. If you can defend and counter all the weapons they have, then it makes the whole thing rather pointless. They should be a challenge if you want to try and fight them. I don't think we'll be getting a way of following their wakes anytime soon, or probably, anytime.

    Well it's hard as they're 218Mb each :p However this is a crop of one and if you zoom right in you'll notice how the metal fixings don't lose any quality, but the writing's already blurred. I can't see anything behind the writing though, maybe it's cause the lighting's different but I don't think so. Click the picture to get a fullscreen version.

    I doubt you'll get them to be honest, the writing is deliberately blurred. I take my screenshots at 6k resolution and you still can't read what they say. I only managed to make out water and coffee beans when I first posted that picture, didn't notice toilet roll, but I'm glad they had some at least :D

    Connectivity and other issues aside, how the turret got implemented didn't seem as arcadey and cheap as it seemed to be at first glance. Now, that's not to say I think it's good design, because when it came out I recall some hastily constructed explanation of how it worked (a "camera drone"? righhht.) that indicated they didn't actually think it through like the whole telepresence thing. But a third person turret view actually makes a lot of sense for a gunner trying to aim from a platform that might be moving in three different directions at once. Now, if you grew up in the past 40 years, this is what you wanted from being a spaceship gunner: But during that fight the Millennium Falcon didn't maneuver at all and flew straight and level while the Tie Fighters made strafing runs around it. Like the other dogfights in Star Wars, it was WWII style fighters vs a bomber. How hard would it have been able to aim, let alone see anything if the Falcon were jinking and dodging every which way? The turrets...

    Would LOVE to be able to fly an untethered SLF! Especially if we could engineer it a little. Not much, just enough to make it a little more durable and with better power distribution. Maybe get some experimental effects like corrosion, concordant sequence, etc. Maybe limit it to having only Super Cruise, so it requires a carrier ship in the system, or ship transfers to move around the galaxy.

    Respect for owning up to a mistake is traditional. Doubly so for offering up an apology as well.

    Here's an easy test for you or anybody, and anybody can play. (works for black knights too) Open up your post history. Look at the posts you've made. Count up how many times you've posted in a single thread, especially back and forth with another user who you disagree with in the span of a few minutes not actually trying to change the person's mind, but trying to show to the community that the other person is wrong, usually ending with "You should go play another game/This game isn't for you/You don't understand game design/Haters Just go away" as a mic drop. (And on the flip side, "Frontier sucks/Frontier Sux/Frontier Suxxxxx/Fanboyz Go Away") If you've got more than just a few posts in your history that all say the same thing in a bunch of different threads to rebut someone else's criticism of the game... If you just can't let it go when you see a negative as you're browsing the forums and have to reply... you might be a White Knight. Same is true for the haters. If you look in your post history...

    Gotta disagree with ya on that definition... A White Knight, be it for a game, a person, a football team, a movie fan or whatever, isn't somebody who thinks something is perfect. A White Knight is someone who cruises around looking for dragons to slay and challenge anyone they perceive is threatening their beloved. They'll jump into any conversation or forum thread and raise their sword to beat back the attack - whether or not it's justified or the thing they are trying to protect wants it or needs it. White Knighting isn't about denying imperfection, it's about preserving the honor of your beloved. And there is plenty of that in the ED forums, along with the unrepentant haters who have to jump into any thread, positive or negative, to spread their views. Yin and Yang. Flip sides of the same coin. And some of them are in this very thread. :D EDIT: Ninja'd by NecoMachina.

    Hmmm ... maybe this has changed but when I started reading through this thread there seemed to be a strong suggestion that blue POI's were nothing to do with geyser/fumarole locations but were simply indicative of surface material deposits (farmable rocks) which may or may not bear any relation to the presence of nearby geysers/fumaroles. Apologies for not watching Baton's video yet (I'm at work) but ... has it basically been confirmed that these active geological phenomena do in fact produce small POI's or is this still just speculation? Edit ... Ah OK - that sounds like you're fairly confident about these POI indicators then.

    Apologies if this has been answered, possibly many times, but I read the first 20 pages, checked the OP's website and also googled the question without much success. Q) Are there any proven techniques for finding geysers/fumarole's on a given planet whose system map description suggests they should be present? The best description for this I've found so far is this one ..
