    Milky Way Society of Organics and Geology
    (M.W.S.O.G)


    Click to Enter MWSOG Website

    Welcome to the Milky Way Society of Organics and Geology. The MWSOG is tasked with discovering all sorts of geological activity throughout the galaxy. On top of that we are specializing in hunting down any strange forms of organic life that may arise from Brain Trees to Fungal Gourds and hopefully many more to come.

    This thread is the main discussion group for anything and everything pertaining to geological and organic matters. You can talk about mechanics, possible improvements, share stories and experiences. Propose projects and gatherings. You can find friends to meet up with or find great places to go adventure on your own. You can take a more scientific role and help in gathering data to add to the ever growing collection in the catalog. Whatever and however you want to contribute you can and if all you want to do is stop by and say hello and find some good places to see, welcome and I hope you enjoy your stay.

    Below are the various links to current projects and the MWSOG website, home of the Catalog and a place to showcase some of the universe's most beautiful places. There you will also find the Geologic short film series and the accompanying Galactic Geologist newsletters.

    Distant Worlds 2

    With the final chapter of BEYOND upon us, a new wave of discovery is about to begin.
    The MWSOG will be taking part in the Distant Worlds 2 Journey and I will be heading up the Geology Department. Anybody who partakes in this thread and is going on the journey, we should have a great time and if you want to join up in any role feel free to join us Geo-Geeks!

    For Those that have joined and are looking for all the info you need you will find that below. A new thread will be created shortly and this will be our main way of communicating, sharing ideas and what not.

    As for what we will be doing......

    GEOLOGY DEPARTMENT:
    The Geology department is devoted to the study of all unique features that can be found on the surface of airless worlds. Working hand-in-hand with the Explorers, we will seek out volcanic activity, organic life forms, unusual terrain formations, and other mysterious things for further investigation.

    Working with the Resource Acquisition Team and Scientists, our data will be analyzed for the purposes of material gathering and enhancing the scientific understanding of our galaxy. Scenic views will be featured in DW2 publications, and events will planned at some of the most unique locations found.



    Role of GEOLOGIST:


    By signing up as a Geologist, you will be helping to locate and survey sites of interest on planet surfaces (Horizons Required). Duties include gathering scan data, images, and notes about geological features and organic life forms, for input into a catalog of DW2 discoveries as well as future integration into the MWSOG Catalog.

    Here is the location of another site!

    System: HR8546
    Body: HR8546 3C
    Coordinates: Top (97.9) Bottom (-8.0)

    After looking to some videos on youtube i came across this location (credit goes to the video author, linked below, i just followed the video coordinates):

    System: SOL
    Planetary body: ACTAEA
    Coordinates: roughly 59.2 / 31.5 (see screenshots for better coordinates, it's an area, persistent)

    At the moment of my arrival they were inactive. There are several of them scattered around the area. There are several different Crystal formations, all of them giving vanadium. Upon observation it seems like these crystal formation are spawned over a short period of time. While inactive the geysers do emit a faint black smoke while producing a gurgling sound.

    Concerning sound, i hope that the scanner sound for them will get tweaked, it is actually (in my opinion) almost unbearable while using an headset, an high pitched sound that is persistent if you are in an area surrounded from geological features like this. Please cmdrs, try to get there and report back about your experience with the scanner sound. It is really annoying.

    Some screenshot (resized at 1366x768), i'm actually still there to see if (when) they come alive.

    Link to the youtube video showing them active: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2fYNXUyp_OA

    Awesome! That video of the spewing geyser is what I'm looking for. That was cool and pretty intense. Agreed the SRV Wavescanner noise for these is very jarring, especially with headphones.

  5. #5
    Got one of them active, no green smoke but liquid pouring out. Better than nothing and finally found an SRV wash

    So it looks like the new Geysers and Fumaroles are bugged....check coord to confirm Enceldus top: 55.1 bottom: 45.6 to confirm

    Great Stuff Raptargh for organising this thread.
    I had plans to catalogue and gather data after that night shift to help the search , but i shall go into that in more detail after a good sleep with tomorrow off to continue as there is much to organise.
    Locations so far, will gather them tomorrow , we have Enceldus which i have not visited yet. Actaea which has 3 known sites,, 2 fumers and 1 geyser. 1 small site in the pleiades nearby barnacles, the muddy burp fumer with green gas sometimes.
    HR 8546 3c was the firey fumerole i found last night.

    Gathering more info on that new site, i found the system map planet map was only useful as a general guide. 2 areas i noted from system map, but orbital cruise more sites were visible, most likely not visible on system map scale.

    Locating new search area i quickly found another, but more on that in a second,, will sign off with that for the night.
    Few ideas on gathering data. Was planning to gather images of each site with ,
    1. Orbital screenshot before dropping to glide of area maybe useful,
    2. 25km above site on planet, get a area view of the site, mark location on image.
    3. 2km above the POI site. Get a idea of the size of each site and density and activity from visible erruptions. Fumeroles i thought were in a smaller area, but found others spread out over larger areas.
    4. Close up of features, are they all the same type or is there variety.. Mainly i first presumed there were maybe one or two types, Fumeroles seemed round and muddy or 3 rocks in a ring. Geysers small round holes wet looking rock or mud.
    5. Emission types and materials. Can vary on colour from site to site. Green grey yellow gasses seen, Water eruptions splashing all way up to geyser eruptions of water , firey gas emissions or firey sparks.
    Materials seen so far Piceous Cobble, metal lumpy rock clump , can vary in colour from site to site. Crystal fragments/cluster Needle crystal, seen in green and grey so far.
    6. So far also noted many areas have random POI nearby , Large old POI ( wrecks/buildings etc ), Medium sized POI , the small POI has often been nearby. Unsure if this is common or not, further reports from others please. Thinking that the persistant small fumerole/geyser POI may generate nearby random POI.

    I am trying to be brief here as this was a quick run down of ideas i was thinking while at work.

    Created this to give an idea of the small POI for fumeroles and geysers at range and close,, up to 5-6km they appear, height has no effect, they appear even at 16km but still need to be above and near them.
    [IMG][/IMG]

    Planned to check on other red dot site on HR 8546 to see if could confirm any other site there. That was less useful as i found more sites visible from orbital cruise. Picking one soon located something AMAZING>

    Here is where we really dont give FD enough credit. We moan too much. Expect it all before beta has even finished.
    The sneek peeks at elite meet showed Massive geysers like what people may expect on Enceldus, it seemed the SRV was even blasted upwards driving over it.
    Until FD upload that and we can find the location and system from SRV cockpit which was visible , we will have to continue to search for these places.

    What i presumed of Fumeroles was just blown out of the water when i found this. Chimneys,, larger fumerole site. It has blown me away in its awesomeness. The site seems quite dormant , grey smoke on occasion but what a sight.

    Album of images collected at the 2 sites. a few from firey fumeroles and more from the chimney site.
    http://imgur.com/a/l6ArE

    Here is the best fumerole i've seen , and i think might be best i see for quite a while ,, spectacular. HR 8546 3c -86.5 44.7


    Enjoy, and back soon.

    added: Video from last nights 1st site same planet,. firey fumeroles site. 98.0 -8.0

    Awesome! After seeing the video provided I am much more excited knowing that those grand ones are out there somewhere to be found. Just wish things would be much easier, doesn't need to be given to me but at least make it simple. Those Fumaroles look beastly, like to see those going off.

    Does seem like they been mostly found in canyons and rolling hill type geography

    Hopefully this doesn't sound like a stupid question, but I need a crash course on how to use the Coordinates when navigating to a specific surface location. This is one aspect of the game that I have never taken the time to learn, and now with these cool new surface features, AND this cool thread, the time has come to finally figure this out! (and Thanks guys! For putting this growing collection together!)

    Basically... What is the most efficient way to navigate using supplied coordinates like the ones you guys are providing here? It doesn't appear that the ship has any way of navigating to specific coordinates. I mean, you can't punch in a LAT/LONG and tell the ship to go there.

    I should preface my ignorance on this topic by stating that I was initially put off from learning how to navigate using Coordinates when they were originally backwards on the scanner display or otherwise screwed up and difficult or impossible to use for finding a specific surface location using any method.

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. I saw that video from yesterday's Elite Meet showing the new geysers in action. If you guys haven't checked that out yet, you are in for a treat! These were spectacular examples of this new feature! This video, which was produced and shown by Frontier even shows an SRV driving up to, and then driving right over one of these spewing geysers and immediately upon centering over the vent, the SRV literally takes off like a rocket straight up into the air! This particular vent had so much force that the SRV was propelled several hundred feet straight up! They showed this scene both from the SRV cockpit perspective as well as from a remote camera. It was awesome!

    I am not sure where those particular geysers were located, but boy oh boy! The more active examples of these things are going to be amazing to see in person AND to play around with!

    First, Welcome CMDR.

    As for the coordinates, it's pretty simple if not a little annoying.

    https://flic.kr/s/aHskKqeQQk

    In that image i've outlined the box you will be using. This should appear once you hit Orbital Cruise, While I'm not sure what is Longitude and Lattitude, which is why i say top and bottom when i put coordinates, what i do is go into orbital cruise and look at what my coordinates are. From there I move up or down to see how the numbers move according to which direction I am going. Once I get them moving the way I need then I begin to work my way towards the provided cooridnates. When i get close enough i drop out and then continue my way to the final exact location. It can be quite annoying when you get one direction going they way you want but then the other direction is a bit off. If you watch any of the videos on this thread then pay attention to those coordinates and watch how they work as the CMDRS get closer and closer. Sorry for the terrible description, maybe somebody can clean those up for you. Maybe I'll even make a video showing how to reach coordinates.

    Updated with an editable spreadsheet! So, perhaps use the spreadsheet for the important details, system, body, features, coordinates and for now screenshots, and we can use the thread for brief descriptions of our finds as well as regular discussions about surface features and exploration in general.

    What are the search techniques being used, I know there aren't many but are we jumping from POI to POI, from distinguishing feature to feature, or just picking a line and going straight till you find something
