Thread: THE FORMIDINE RIFT MYSTERY (Part 4)

  1. #6226
    I bet there is a Megaship in each of the two other regions as well: Conflux and Hawkin's Gap.
    I wonder what is the true "end" of Formidine Rift, if we haven't solved it.

    How could megaship be IG since gamma ? curious to know.

    Sounds like a mystery to me!

    I think the running explanation at this point is that it was probably an anaconda prior to the latest update. It seems reasonable. And if nobody found it up to that point, no reason not to add a little flash when you can before it's revealed to the world galaxy.

    Dear Drew,
    Tried that Tweety thing but I guess that did not work (Sylvester issues I guess) so I will repost the question here.

    In the video clue part "DB-IB" is the symbol "-" in the middle a minus sign or a hyphen?
    Would really help eliminate possibles.

    Regards

    You know I can't answer that question.

    I have been at pains to say this mystery isn't 'a' POI. That's still true. That doesn't mean it doesn't contain POIs (because how else can players visit something/see it/learn?).

    Some of those POIs have been upgraded overtime because the technology improved. Some additions have been made. I thought that was quite cool personally - lots of people put a lot of hard work into the Zurara for example.

    Will you all be satisfied by the ultimate outcome? I'm guessing not after some of the comments today! I don't think I can satisfy you all.

    This is a piece of in-game story when all is said and done. It has a finite set of resources available to it and only limited mechanics to allow players to affect and interact with it. Within those constraints I have improvised to the best of my ability. I do carefully observe how things are progressing. I'll admit could have done some things better. This is a learning experience for me too. I'll accept direct criticism when one of you has written a cohesive in-game MMO player influenced storyline, whilst writing a book and interacting with a busy dev team, working around bugs and issues and holding down a full-time job and a family. We can compare notes - let me know when you're ready.

    Some constraints are also forced upon me. The book must end at a point in time (I hated 'Lost' for that reason!) and all this is bound up in it. That may require some contrivances or nudges in certain directions.

    Those of you who've met me know that I only have the best interests of the Elite Dangerous community at heart. If you haven't, I'll appeal to your judgement of character.

    The event on the 29th may not work either. It's a risk, we all know that. But nobody ever achieved anything worthwhile by holding back and playing it safe.

    Cheers,

    Drew.

    That's just it: I would love to get in on this. IF the devs would confirm, in no uncertain terms, that yes, there is something out there, right now, to be found.

    All these vagueries though...Getting to wonder whether they are just stringing us along while they work to insert the next Discovery with the next update.

    Also, scanners that actually find things would help.

    Remember that some time ago... "The Core of the problem" and then Rebecca has now said the "Problem aint out here. its back in the core worlds" It was like it was in front of us the whole time...

    Congrats to all those who helped find this. I am truly impressed by your dedication and tenacity in unraveling the mystery.

    Holy crap. We came here just to say the same thing.

    It isn't solved. I've corrected the title and description of the video.

    It's actually strange to read this thread. From the mega ship discovery onwards, there are many posts talking about this mystery having been "solved". Maybe it was a case of Chinese whispers...that is certainly how I incorrectly got the wrong impression.

    No harm done though, and hopefully a lot more stuff to look forward to.

    Phaethon's reach. Phaethon arrived till the Scorpio constellation when he lost control of the horses and dropped to Eridanus river.
    Path of souls. According to Greek mythology is the river Acheron where Hermes (for some) or Charos (for others) was accompanying the dead through to Hades

    Hope I am correct and that it helps
