    Hi is it possible to get G19 and C38 when playing solo ?

    Thank you Micheal - We know how difficult it is to comment on a key mystery/puzzle - So it would appear the puzzle is bugged, fair enough, disappointing but it is what it is. While you are working on a fix for the puzzle could you also add a beacon to the site, everyone knows the site is there. It's all over Galnet - would make approach easier, cheers.

    Thanks for confirming Michael. I know you don't want to give away too much but I am playing in Solo (to avoid the many, many griefers!) and with only 13 data points confirmed (as opposed to Open's 23), I feel like I'm missing out.

    Can you let us know whether the actual number of live data points we should be getting is below or above 20??

    Here here. Been on guard duty all week for about 6 hours a night. Been using the bleed as justification for my time spent.

    Two bugs you say - more here. Shame we couldn't have this feedback a few days ago when we were spending hours trying things working in solo.

    As we seem to have so many bugs in all modes. Might it not be a good idea to suspend the timer until they are ironed out?

    So with the puzzle officially broken and Ram Tah the only person in the Galaxy that knows of more Alien Ruin sites. I'm at a loss, no in-game clue has been found for ANY Ruin Sites, yet a mission to find them is thrown at you by Ram Tah.

    Surly there must be a clue in the game - a beacon - message board - ...

    What frustrates me is that we cannot interact with NPC's and Mission givers.

    Ram Tah - "Search as many Alien sites as you can!"
    Nutter - "Yes Sir! - Where should I look?"
    Ram Tah - ""
    Nutter - "Any Clues?"
    Ram Tah - ""
    Nutter - "Hello?"
    Ram Tah - ""

    Oh geez

    i wouldn't worry about the timer just yet, i claimed the reward yesterday, picked the mission back up again and it had just over a 3 week timer back so it seems its not actually working correctly either.

    IMHO the timer is a garden-pole to lead us (although the analysis of ruin found is important too) to the question on hand - where are the others ???

    Hey all,

    I'm one of the CMDRs who worked with Mortilstiltskin on the confirmed combo spreadsheet.

    We are continuing to test all the other obelisks on the site and making note of the combinations we have tried. We are following the same algorithm we've been using to confirm the rest. By process of elimination we hope to a least record all the combinations with no response on the remaining obelisks in the hope of catagorically determining that no combinations/one combination works.

    In addition, it's very important to note the following:

    1.Not all the standard lit solo obelisks have a combination.
    2. Areas A and D have 1 confirmed combination each
    3. Areas B and F have 2 confirmed combinations
    4. FD have confirmed there are "issues" with the site and on the Livestream recently they stated "adjudication server errors are caused by problems with missions and objectives. You don't want one of those". This is the most common error currently causing server crashes at the ruins.

    Based on the above I believe that the obelisks are meant to be scanned in a sequence, with each new scan lighting a new obelisk. However, only when a new CMDR or relogging CMDR joins the instance, do new obelisks light up currently. Furthermore, the newly lit obelisks are more often than not, only seen by the CMDR that most recently joined the instance. This is why when you relogging, you see new obelisks and I believe it's because the instance is lighting what should be lit according to what obelisks you personally have already scanned. But the information in confusing the server, resulting in a random array of obelisks lit up as it tries to accommodate all CMDRs progress. This is only further supported by the fact that as a CMDR who's been constantly relogging with a test group, we've noticed that after about 7-10 relogging, we're triggering the adjutication server error and wiping everyone from the PG instance.

    So what I've concluded from all this is frontier are the only ones now who can enable us to collect the full 101 datpoints/million. Considering they take so long to fix these things, you're faced with two choices:

    1. Be patient and faithful, collect the 36 and wait for either a new ruins or a bug fix for your 101 data points and credits.

    2. Exploit the repeatable hand in of this missions, return to Meene and hand in at the station you collected from. Leave the station and redock to collect the mission again. Collect the data points again and hand in again. In about 2-4 days you'll have met and exceeded the mission reward credits. We have a number of CMDRs at 100+ million already. But bare in mind, this is clearly an exploit and once FD figure out how to fix it, they can hotfix it at any point.


    Choose wisely CMDRs
    Be safe out there o7

    I take it you can only collect 36 in a private group or open with other cmdrs present, seems to me 13 is all I can get in solo or in a private group alone.

    Yup.

    That's the simplest and most convincing explanation I've heard so far.

    Correct. You can only get 13 in solo or with a group less then 4 in PG/Open currently.

    It's currently on a busy PG/Open instance that allows you to try the "relogging" trick and trigger more pot luck obelisks.

    Ok so...... I cant hand in this mission
    I accepted it from Ram Tah's base, Phoenix base. When you go back there, the option to hand in doesnt exist as there is no mission board.
    If you go to Felice dock the option doesnt exist as it wont appear on the mission board.

    So, im stuck, I have about finished with scanning at 21 found, i want to hand this in and get my credits

    Ok, that's strange. I've also noticed that G19 isn't listed on this sheet: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets...#gid=208480479

    I'll turn G10 to inactive until someone else confirms it should be active in Solo.
