    Yes, that's what it looks like to me.
    Plus the spiral beam hitting the corvette doesn't seem to be doing anything to the corvette, so I wonder if interacting with the flower ship simply causes a glitch in the matrix and buggy behaviour.

    I mean, I assume they're still there if you subsequently re-approach the barnacle, but it sure does look like a lot of them are sucked up.

    Edit: oh and congrats on thread #10! Silly and marvellous at the same time
    It is the same beam they use in the hyperdictions. It's probably multi-functional.

    They might just be scanning, but it looks like some form of extraction of energy.
    MA and materials are left untouched it seems.

    I would love to see a close up of how the FF around MA react to the beam. They are best viewed live though.

    Had 3 encounters this morning, none have occurred when I just sat and waited.

    I assume it's something like this :

    1. When an instance is entered a random chance of an event is calculated
    2. If an event is to occur a random timer begins
    3. Flowership arrives to harvest the shiny things
    True, but switching does get annoying. If you sit around and just wait it out, you get the same effect because each new cmdr thae comes into your instance can trigger the even for you since it's new for him but not for you it's like you get another reroll. So having a ton of CMDRS coming in and out would essentially be the best but as long as you are there for the ride you can just wait it out.

    Re Unknown Ship 'Event'

    I was coming out of orbital cruise during an Unknown Ship 'Event' was in progress above a Barnacle on Pleiades Sector OI-T C3-7 A 6 (5MA site) when my thrusters went offline, I was 4 Km high. My ship crashed down onto the planet surface took only 50% hull damage but didn't explode. Instead it spun in a floating state until the 'event' was over. I noticed there were 3 other ships that were spinning above the ground in a floating state. Once my ships systems came back online I quickly grabbed control and brought my ship to a safe landing.

    Questions :
    1. Have you guys noticed how our ships don't explode if we hit the ground whilst the Unknown Ship 'Event' is in progress above a Barnacle?
    2. Do you think this is scripted, or did the Unknown Ship protect our ships in some way?

    Well actually the 1st one is bull. Ask my cutter about that...

    May look the same, but it's coming from the rear rather than the front.

    Poo beams!

    Yeah, first one is untrue. I saw a ship fall from a about 20 meter to the ground, exploded. Alien beam sucked all the debris together. Poor guy, had been waiting for hours but forgot flying isn't to smart whilst waiting for the ship to arrive.

    Yeah materials stayed there.

    Sorry (3) was a bit misleading.

    Cept this comes from the butthole, the hyperdiction from the front hole, also more wavy from the front hole, like tentacles.

    They both have the waves and the pull towards the US, but the bottom version looks a bit more powerfull. Maybe it's a class 2?

    Congratulations on breaking and making another thread :-)

    When I scanned the 2 barnacles next to each other, they appeared as 1 structure. Maybe they are joined underground?

    The beam goes up from the barnacle to the ship. You can pause the vid with the beam halfway up when it starts.
