Thread: Suggest a nice crater/valley moon to visit? Ideally with mist maybe?

    Suggest a nice crater/valley moon to visit? Ideally with mist maybe?

    Anyone recommend a nice planet/moon for a group of us to go and visit? Ideally with interesting/pretty crater(s) and/or valleys? (Ideally in/near the bubble)

    Ta!

    ps: We did Junga 1 last trip somewhere - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m7JClFPDxhg

    I arrived at BECRUX last night 352ly from SOL. I have only explored 1 moon so far but it has a number of deep ray craters and misty low lands.

    That's not a moon, that's a large asteroid!

    Very odd how it's round on one side and warped on the other. As if the body had originally formed and cooled as a sphere, and then had one side warped by an impact of some sort possibly altering the composition of that half of the planet so that it could support a more potato like structure.

    Indeed not a moon at all, it's not the most potato like object I have seen but I don't often see the misty low areas. It is also in binary with another rock just as oddly shaped but without the mist.

    I would recommend looking for a rocky ice world in close proximity to a gas giant: these can have stunning canyons, ridges and mountains. For an example, see EACTAINDS FN-W C1-11 A 2 B ( https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showth...=236381&page=3 ) but I do not know of any currently in the bubble as I have not yet returned from Distant Worlds to go looking. Rocky ice worlds are the least common type of landable, so you may have to search a bit but they are totally worth it!

    Is it 8D?

    Where are the misty locations then?

    It was 8C, the binary pair.

    Found this odd guy in the Abyss area if you're willing to go out there.

    I'd have checked it out but 1.00+ gravity is out of my practice range and I am already down to 52% hull from crashing on the last interesting crater lol.

    Have you got your graphics dtails turned down really low, because that last image looks kinds "flat"?!

    There's one Big misty crater at Beagle Point

    That's a bit outside the bubble I believe

    Wherever you lay your hat, that's your bubble.

    I've spent a couple of days trying to find some nice (small) ravines to fly down, and not really found any so far

    As a rule the best bet seems to be ice worlds, but even those with loads of ravines/cracks, when you get down to them their huge/large so not really any challenge (fun) to fly along in your ship (eg: Viper).

    I have found that small rocky moons have the best chance of finding interesting surfaces. The bigger planets mostly seem to have some hilly terrain with craters, with the bigger craters having their own little landscape going on inside them.
