    Thank you.
    Muchos Gracias.
    Spisibo.
    Merci.

    I had come to Merope 2A and found nothing but a felled truffula forest:




    But your list saved me.

    That barnacle halfay up a cliff was pretty scary. Especially as it's sitting right underneath a Fed capital ship.

    I had got a bit "instrument fixated" sorting the lat and long, and so when I made a last turn for final approach and I saw the Farragut 'Argus' my heart sank.
    I HAD to be right underneath that. Had so see off an NPC eagle, but not drama there.
    And then getting in the SRV and not sure if the Cap ship would take a dislike to me (I've got a little positive Fed rep that I've picked up as a meat by product of AEDC operations).

    So I did get two Meta Alloys for Felicity.

    I feel pretty bad because it does seem like we're over fishing these barnacles.

    Is there any info on the farmed out ones re-healing and producing more fruit?
    Is there like a pruning and management thing going, or do we just suck them dry and hope some good CMDR finds more?

    I had a bit of a look in the Cannon thread (found this thred thanks). But there's like six themes running there and it's hard to sort the wheat from the chaff.

    Thanks again, CMDR PanPiper.

    From previous research they all will ripen , it seems to be on a 3 weekly rotation. 1 week ripe followed by 2 weeks of broken. Although i'm monitoring these 16 to see if that is correct for all the barnacles or if they vary randomly.

    Change day for barnacles is Thursdays and i'll update the ripe list. I've data for the RO-Q system for 2 weeks now and 1 weeks of data for Merope.
    If the 3 week pattern is correct i should be able to forecast that RO-Q system.
    Without a 2nd week of data yet for Merope, harder to predict that. since 2a is on 3/4 ripe, most likely will be 0 or 1 ripe and 3 or 4 barren on the change day. Merope 5c iirc had few the prior week, and this week 2 barren and 2 with 1 MA spike.
    Unsure how or why the spikes vary yet, but hopefully a pattern emerges.

    The RO-Q system forecast, 3 of the barnacles have been barren both weeks , so i presume those will be ripe come thursday, will confirm on the day.
    -20.01 / 72.09 , -23.59 / 70.94 , -27.08 / 75.11

    Well, that's cheering news, I must say.
    It was pretty disheartening to go to a legendary tourist spot for the first time and it looks like, uh - you know some place that has like an algal bloom from too much fertiliser and the creek is full of dead fish.




    A bit like the time I went to Tjakiri on an Onion Head bender with Marra's Black Omega mate Vic.
    Those guys throw a bloody good party:



    Anyways, after I woke up the next day with a pounding head and the stench of the Clair Dock slave pits cloggin my pipes - I needed to get something from the outfitters to make it home, so popped in to Harma but found the pirate station services dead because The White Templars had been up to no good.

    So I'm glad to hear that Meta Alloy stocks wil be replenished, as I've heard on the grapevine that some of the usual Xenoterrorists are planning a UA bombing party over the Christmas break.

    Yeah, Ollobrains - I'm looking at you, here.
    But thanks for the heads up, I'll just go buy them in the future.

    The large plan is to infect jaques out at colonia with unknown artifacts for storyline purposes, it might even lead to an expansion of meta alloy sources, all in the interest of advancing the games storyline, but yes the california nebula is still a barnacle rich location and possibility of an alliance colony and research expansion out there if the turner research faction gets enough support

    Still awaiting the galactic tick of BGS. expecting soon and will get the barnacle weather soon.

    No change in the barnacle state yet.

    Will keep check on the sites and update when change happens, later perhaps or may not change for a few days or longer.
    Maybe FD can enlighten us.
    Still have nav targets for scanned barnacles, expected that to dissapear once the state change happens, unless that gets fixed which would be nice.

    "Storyline Purposes" - that euphemism is almost as good as SDC's "Content Delivery"

    Not everyone has the same view of what you are doing. In fact some might call it XenoTerrorism:

    I'm really interested to see a broken Barnacle refruit. What's your best prediction of the next one to do that?

    Pleiades sector RO-Q B5-0 4. 3/8 barnacles were barren for 2 weeks, 'should' of been ripe this week. locations -20.01 / 72.09 , -23.59 / 70.94 , -27.08 / 75.11
    although the barnacle state tick didnt tock yesterday, or today.
    Will monitor the barnacles for when they do change. Only happened once before i believe, back when they were first monitored. the barnacles got stuck with no change for 3 weeks.
    I'm hoping this wont go on that long,it will put my research on hold. Possibly related to beta ? i dunno.

    Until the change happens current barnacles are still ripe. Merope 2a locations are still ripe in OP

    Update Wednesday : no changes yet. Should be a state change again tomorrow but unsure what will happen, probably nothing i presume but will check.

    Located a double barnacle, alas it is in one of the PRE guarded systems, not too much a problem with skimmers but the goliath makes it unusable as a farming location.
    Will keep looking for another double ripe unguarded if this state change doesnt happen.

    Barnacle state change happened today like normal, unsure why last week was an exception. Short of time for now. will update other locations soon , for now you will have to make do with a Jackpot barnacle.
    Pleiades sector RO-Q B5-0 4 23.59/70.94 Unguarded 4 MA spikes. Barnacle of the week i think this one shall be.Also one of my 3 predictions for ripening

    Other two locations also ripened with 1MA spike each. -27.08 / 75.11 also gained some turrets.
    remaining 5/8 locations all changed to barren state as predicted.
    Monitoring the 3 locations on Pleione also since last week. Will check on those locations and the 8 in Merope and add info for those locations tomorrow.

    This will not be a simple experiment it seems.. the old pattern of ' barren , barren , ripe ' , 3 alternating weeks is not the whole picture, theres more complex patterns or they vary by planet or system.

    RO-Q system was predictable on that last cycle, although the MA spikes vary much.

    Merope has defied the predictions. Expected 2A to be mostly barren this week after 3/4 barnacles ripe with 2MA spikes. The change this week has put all merope 2a barnacles ripe.. highly unexpected.
    Appears the 2MA spike ripe now changed to 1MA spike guarded. Barren barnacle now in 2MA state. One of 2A's barnacles had that clone, at times it was a double barnacle with the main barnacle single under capship.
    The barren double clone has ripened to 2MA, main barnacle is now in 1MA state. Seems the double clone is 1 week behind perhaps.

    2nd harvestable barnacle in double state. 4MA. 5 technically but that single B is guarded turreted and large exclustion zone , doesnt cover the double though, easy pickings.
    MEROPE 2A 2.68 / 143.03

  12. #12
    Had nearly 4 days of internet severed.. Cable cut by workmen but now fixed. Luckily made it back for barnacle state change day without having to recruit a field scientist.

    Been a busy day , but no barnacle change seems to of happened again, as of last time i checked around 8PM , could be late but unlikely, fogotten today maybe, but will recheck tomorrow, Friday for any changes.
    If not then states remain the same, 2 ripe double barnacle locations with 4 MA.

    MEROPE 2A
    2.68 / 143.03

    Still good as of an hour ago. Guarded by Cap Ship and skimmers. Two MA available, I think (I just took the one I needed for Farseer).

    Barnacle state change occurred today.
    The doubles from last week no longer valid.
    Still have others to check after work.
    No double barnacles yet But one good source for now is
    Pleiades sector RO-Q B5-0 4 -27.10 / 74.60
    Unguarded ripe barnacle with 2MA

    Edit: passing the time compiling my barnacle notes,many scraps of paper with scribblings from past weeks.
    Since some weeks skip a barnacle state change,I now have data on 4 state changes in RO-Q and 3 changes in other systems.
    Regular patterns emerging but some variety.
    2 changes of barren then next ripe,for most but not Merope 2a which is anomalous, changes but mostly ripe there 3/4 changes 1/4 barren change. Odd.
    2MA or 1MA cycle still need more changes data.
    Will complete checking last 4 in this cycle then predict next changes for either next week or week after.

    OP updated now. Should remain the same till 5th Jan at least. Will see if changes or remains the same from 5th till 12th.

  15. #15
    No apparent change,, state change happened as the nav targets on barnacles reset. But appears no change in the states they have remained as they were.

    Odd, but will recheck in next few days as there were far greater developents!

    No doubt you have heard that live alien unknown ships have been sighted in and around the Pleiades interdicting. A few vids and many pictures around already. Keep eyes open if you have UA and are near the Pleiades
