Anyone else hunting for new US/Thargoid sites? Added candidate sites

New Thargoid Structure found by Thepirateorc! :cool: Congrats!



Due to a mess up on Canonn's site this is now listed as TS 229, it should've been TS 230, anyway the missing one is the Outz outlier TS.
Congrats for the find!
Yeah, it seems that every ACW or GGwABL candidate systems are now scanned. So we now have to scan our big list of poor or very poor candidate. This new one was on my "very poor" candidate list. And very close to HIP 22460, like the previous one... Quite strange too that the system isn't mentionned as thargoid civillisation (hand made by Frontier ?). Quite strange too that only two message can be obtained from it despite it is not a TS included in the Eagle eye survey.
 
As per my op, I've scanned what was left of my good candidates, weak candidates & all the ones we'd eyeball searched too (we didn't miss one! :cool:).
So I'm out of candidate systems at the moment & using LCU's EDMC plugin to check for new candidates. If you have another list to scan through then by all means post it here :).

Btw you say that every ACW or GG+ABL systems are scanned, I certainly wouldn't count on that, about a month ago I found 1 system from LCUs plugin that had not had 3 of its only rocky bodies scanned (for EDSM), strangely everything else there was! It was a prime candidate! I added it to the Good candidates list, & later probed it (no TS sadly). So although I would say the vast majority have been scanned in this area, some remain only partially scanned, & a few might contain RBs. Oh, I found that odd one after searching about 3 dozen systems! :p

Re Thargoid civilisations in the Gal map, last I heard only those within 100 LYs are flagged, & I'm not sure if it's even all of them within that distance.
It is weird re only 2 messages though......

I think that there may be systems in the Merope bubble that haven't been put into EDSM yet. Not many but there will be some

Also that site that was found recently was very much an outlier so there may well be other sites out there in marginal candidates.
HIP 22711 was on my list but was low priority because it wasn't an AW or GGABL

Looking at the survey I can see that we have visited 46% of all systems within 150ly of Merope

Have these been checked? They are all Water Worlds with Ammonia so also marginal candidates? Some of them have NHSS

Yea I'm wondering if the baulk of any TSs left are in the marginal/weak candidate systems.

So to that effect I've been looking through these 47 results from spansh.co.uk to look for any new candidates. So far I've gone upto result 14, which was a suitable candidate, but no TS there.

Re your list - already searched & in my op
HIP 13638
HIP 16107
HIP 17643 2a
HIP 18625
HIP 20197
HIP 23139

Aries Dark Region MS-T c3-13
Synuefai TF-Y c17-6

New candidates searched, no TS found

[edit] HIP 16778 is a suitable candidate! :). I'm going there now unless you reply in game in a second ;)......., you searched, no joy.
Mel 22 Sector RJ-Q c5-5, new candidate, has 2 suitable bodies...... - your searching - No TSs
Taurus Dark Region DL-Y d47, n ew candidate! - I'm searching ;) - no TS, only bio
Synuefe DT-O d7-25 - new candidate, but no TSs
HIP 23077 - new cand. - no TSs (but 3 WWs! :cool:)
Col 285 Sector FB-X d1-88 - new cand. - no TSs despite 5 RBs! (lots of geo though)
Mel 22 Sector NI-T d3-12 - new cand. - no TSs (only geo)
HIP 15697 A7a, C1, C2, C2a, C3-5
Struve's Lost Sector MS-T c3-5 - new cand. - no TSs
Col 285 Sector DL-X c1-13 9a & b - no TS

Btw, copying these new ones to the op.

Hmm, I need to re-search one system I've previously done (not the above ones).......
I'm also adding new candidates from EDI (spansh.co.uk) to the op.

Btw, found a weird system, Pleiades Sector ZK-W b2-1, the 1st 2 planets are RIWs followed by an HMC! Wth?? lol

Re-centered the search to Merope again, looking for ammonia atmos planets from 0-50 LYs from Merope to start with.

For anyone wanting to join in, I'll be adding searched candidate systems to the op searched list.

My god! This system must have dozens of candidate bodies to search through! :eek: Thank Fdev for surface probes! :cool:
Holy ****! Counted them now, 23 candidates!!!:eek::eek:, surely theirs got to be a TS here??.......[edit] Nope!

I was about to publish the list of candidates I've done so far in the 3.3 and I saw you've updated the list on the first page of this thread. I had double checked most of the candidate you've done!!! However, I still have some of them that don't appear in the list :

Ah, yea it pays to check here 1st! ;) lol.

A couple more what? Bark mounds or searched candidate systems? Or both? ;)
Thanks for the lists, I'll add them to the searched list soon. And nice job of the number of systems already searched! :cool:

I've already searched Col 285 Sector DL-X c1-13 134,63 9a ;)

1st list added, LMK about the 2nd one.

Yea I'll use your list from now on, much easier than me manually searching through the results list from spansh ;).

A few questions, what's column A & Q about?
Which would you rather I do, add a search system to the 'already probed list' (you've got a typo there btw ;)), or change check to Y in col C of the 'shell' list?

Oh also, you're missing 4 TSs from the TSS site list, the last 4 I think.

Column A just tells me if I have left a formula in place. TBH it can be removed now.
Column Q is bodies with ammonia

I'll update the TS list when I have some time.

You can either add the site to already probed or change the column to Y its up to you.

Okay, in light of the Q4 update impending I'm done with eyeballing. Now I'm patrolling the perimeter of the locked sectors in Outotz for candidate bodies not yet in EDSM.
Now that the new exploration tools are in hand, since I didn't see that anyone else has jumped on it, I ran through all the candidate Outotz systems from this thread.

TL;DR - other than the one system where Gnosis ended up, absolutely no sign of Thargoid presence out there. Probably nothing to find out that way until FDev unlocks those sectors or otherwise changes the game.

For my search, I combed through this thread for all the Outotz systems that came up as candidates. In the process I also spot checked a lot of random systems in the area. Since the FSS makes it so much quicker to sweep systems for POIs, I didn't bother separating strong from weak candidate systems, nor likely from unlikely bodies. Just visited them all and resolved every body. Sooooo many Geology POIs on icy water geyser moons! End result, the only Thargoid signals that came up were the four we already know about on Outotz ST-I d9-6 2a. Just to be sure, I also landed on every body that turned up Biological POIs. Found nothing but crystal shards though. Great for filling up on rare elements, but not the kind of alien life we're looking for. It does kind of seem like crystal shards tend to like the same kind of bodies that are candidates for Thargoid structures though.

Anyhow, I always kind of suspected this might be the result, since it's been a month and nobody seems to have stumbled across Thargoid POIs out here yet. While I'm pretty sure I'm the first to do this particular systematic sweep (since I got first mapped on some nice high-value worlds and interesting biological POIs, which suggests I'm the first to thoroughly scan most of these systems with the new tools) the area is close enough to the bubble that someone would surely have noticed if there were a lot of previously unknown Thargoid things in Outotz. Moreover, Thargoid probes at Gnosis still pointed back to Merope. From a meta-game perspective, that suggests that FDev haven't (yet?) implemented a second Thargoid center of influence in the locked sectors. From an in-game theorycrafting standpoint, it makes you wonder if the Thargoids that attacked Gnosis were actually a force diverted from the Pleiades to prevent it from finding something, *not* the Thargoid home force emerging to keep the nosy scientists away from their homeworld as was widely speculated.

So for future reference, here's the list of systems I scanned.

Ammonia Worlds from EDSM
Outotz YK-V c16-0
Outotz SP-M c21-0

GG-ABL list
Outotz LS-K d8-3 (has crystal shards on B5a, which was the TS candidate body)
Outotz FX-R c18-0
Outotz WZ-G d10-7
Outotz WZ-G d10-7 (was flagged as a strong candidate, nothing but geysers)
Outotz KT-D b40-0
Outotz NI-R c18-2
Outotz HH-T c17-2 (also flagged as a strong candidate)
Outotz GC-H b38-0
Outotz OD-R c18-1
Outotz HY-D b40-0
Outotz XG-H b38-0
Outotz VZ-N c20-1
Outotz XP-N c20-0 (our final strong candidate system)
Outotz HN-F b39-0
Outotz CD-F b39-0

Candidate systems found by thread contributors
Outotz YP-N c20-0 (Ammonia world)
Outotz AL-N c20-0 (nothing Thargoid, but very profitable to scan, then go farm massive amounts of Technitium from shards on 12 d a)
Outotz IC-L d8-3
Outotz IC-L d8-4
Outotz LI-Y c15-0
Outotz AH-K c22-0
 
Now that the new exploration tools are in hand, since I didn't see that anyone else has jumped on it, I ran through all the candidate Outotz systems from this thread.

TL;DR - other than the one system where Gnosis ended up, absolutely no sign of Thargoid presence out there. Probably nothing to find out that way until FDev unlocks those sectors or otherwise changes the game.
I was out there as well the last few days and can confirm this. Also searched some systems with ammonian planets, but nothing.

The only interesting thing I found were two degraded emissions with a survey data cache.
 
LCU
OK cool :)

Just FYI, I was busy helping Op-IDA & am currently helping a mining PF in a civil war, so not searching for TSs right now, but I will definitely return to it :).

Maologin
Excellent work! :cool:, I was planning myself to go out there after the candidates for the Pleiades area had been exhausted.
Good to see I hadn't missed a TS at Outotz LS-K d8-3 :). I'll add your list to the op [up].

Firedance
Good job [up], I don't suppose you've got a lit of the systems you searched have you?
