    SRV in orbit! 700km up above planet surface (Mitterand Hollow)

    Hiya folks, earlier today I managed to get an SRV into orbit above Mitterand Hollow. It seems the Gnosis has caused a gravity anomaly!

    This is the moment of takeof

    and this highlight is a 10 minute clip later on when the SRV was some 700km above the planet!

    About a minute an 20 seconds in you can see a shot from the SRV cabin!

    Haha, I was just there the other night, scooping rare artwork, and trying not to get hit by the planet.

    Lol really funny!!

    Great stuff!

    I only managed about 15km SRV jump (geyser-assisted) so far.

    Awesome stuff Nat, might have to head out and try this for myself. Any idea what conditions are required to trigger this? Does New Africa need to be directly overhead? Do you need to be on the same side of the planet as the Gnosis? Am thinking of dimissing my ship while up on its back ... that can often get you a good 5km of altitude if done right.

    Awesome stream yesterday Nats. Freaky goings on at Mitterand hollow & the Hammers made the most of it. +Rep

    Thats one giant SRV or an extremely small moon.

    It's almost like a live-action recreation of the logo for the Planetary Circumnavigation Club!



    Especially apropos since Cmdr PrimeTimeCasual is planning to join our ranks via a circumnavigation of Mitterand Hollow! (let's hope he manages to stay vaguely in contact with the planet).

    Thought I might do a bug report.....


    SRV has zero thrust in space

    Severity
    Game Imersion Braking!

    Frequency
    All the time (unless I get out an push)

    Time of occurrence
    Anytime

    Date of occurrence
    Anytime

    VR?
    None / N/A

    Location
    Space

    Ship/SRV?
    N/A

    Ship Type
    SRV

    Commander Name
    CMDR Natalie Wright

    Description
    After launching my SRV on a dangerous science mission to reach space, from a planitary body, I appear to have no thrust once in space. This is contrary to the laws of physics and Newtons third law. Seriously, now i'm in space I really need to propell my SRV to the nearest station. Please fix the thrusters!!


    Steps to Reproduce
    Hitch a lift on a passing ship, find a really powerful gas geyser or get thrown into orbit by a strange gravity anomaly near the Gnosis

    Nice! My Geyser assisted record is about 20km and I landed too!!!

    Thanks!

    There is a threshold of 1000km from the Gnosis, once inside that, gravity goes a but wrong, be careful as the leading edge of the anomaly pushes you down into the planet!

    what happens if you recall your ship?

    Great! Probably the best thing I've seen done at that weird place.
