But How do you find these things in the first place.

Daft question time.
I'm out here, thousands of LY from anywhere and would quite like to find a geyser or such things.

Is there anything specific I should be looking for to narrow down my chances?
I can find planets and land on them, but where on them should I go?
I've had a lot of fun flying down ravines as these can be seen from space, but volcanic plumes, geysers etc are no where to be found.

So any clues? I know people here have catalogued any they've found, but that's not my point.
How do you go about actually discovering some for yourself?

Thanks in advance for any hits.

:S

I suppose you start off by picking a planet that has volcanism and/or geysers (says on the sysmap after a detailed scan, iirc), but after that, no idea. Spent hours on this for nothing. I think it's pretty much 95% of luck.

Thanks, that's what I seem to be finding :(

No luck so far though.

One of us might find out.

There seem to be other threads on subject, but they are only use once you find something.

Cheers anyway
 
This is great Qohen, thank you for collating everything in one place!
I want to smash out the last 50% from Pioneer to Elite in exploration and I knew I'd seen a thread somewhere about how to do it easily within the bubble (the one by Becky) but I couldn't find it! I'd almost given up hope when I noticed this handy thread. :D
Not allowed to rep you properly apparently but just wanted to say thanks anyway!

@Edelgard: this is a one-man expedition, I don't add those (too many and not exactly 'public service')...
