    i'm away all next week so a 'blot' may be my only option. so i might as well make it a good one! naturally i spent so long faffing about trying to get 'the perfect shot' of the Buckyball Beer Mat canister that it exploded as i was about to press f10, so you'll have to make do with this! intent to sadly miss (another) race. probably

    run submitted. when entering start & finish times there is no 'seconds' option, felt a bit strange. possibly more important, there is no field for video submission. it's here : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WL_kH9fqyK0

    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 ..

    Really, I was thinking it looked more like some kind of futuristic ham slicer .. Those Guardians liked nothing better than a Thargoid Lettuce and Tomato sandwich you know!

    LOL - I normally steer well clear of rant and misery threads (they just bring everybody down) but yours is a rare exception to my unwritten rule! And yeah - I totally got that the title came from your mood at the time (quite understandable) and wasn't (despite your joke) a deliberate klickbait attempt ... well ... not entirely anyway. :p

    So this morning I was merrily skimming over a planet surface in my DBX when I stumbled upon a Federal Corvette quietly parked on the ground. I landed, deployed the SRV and (for a very specific reason I won't go into here) spent the new 5 minutes attempting to hop up onto its back. I failed (it was a 1.5g world plus the SRV's thrusters tend to cut-out while you're still quite a long way away from the Corvette), crashed into the Corvette several times and at one point suddenly found myself being fired upon by some Fed fighters that had turned up. Despite an epic chase off a cliff edge and then down along the base of a canyon my SRV was ultimately destroyed. At this point I was restored to my DBX (which was still parked next to the Corvette) and came under further attack. As I finally made my escape (with shields down and hull at 85%) into SC with the now launched Corvette hot on my tail I received an inbox message saying that if I could meet someone in a nearby system they might have a data delivery job for me...
