Boy, that explains a lot....and the farther you are from the Bubble...perhaps from Sol...the larger the increase per unit distance travelled.
I know they're all grey but jeez, those vistas are soooo beautiful! Every one of those images makes me want to drive there.Day 24:
Todays start. Daylight. Amazing:
(love the blue spots)
(when i finish circumference i will try to get some northern icy bits under daylight - don't know if its possible since for example today main star is quite low on southern sky, maybe it doesn't rise higher on poles)
It wasn't as steep as i guessed nighttime. Descended and continued ahead:
Love the little hints of blue on the walls:
After that passage arrived to this. Interesting terrain ahead:
After little bit of drive arrived to this. Little shot of what is on the left:
(but continued ahead to the darkness - pictured on the right)
After climbing that "darkness" made this shot. Grey looks amazing in low light:
(there is some valley ahead and continued there)
At the end of valley made 2 shots at same spot:
(looking ahead - some great cliffs)
(looking left i can see some opening between mountains, heading there)
This passage was much longer than i guessed. It might look like its going to end around corner, but that was not the case:
(notice steep cliffs around - at places it was very narrow)
After some drive noticed the exit - it was much further away than it looks in this pic:
Finally out. Since i need to turn to little bit right, continued along the cliffs at the right:
Nice cliffs. Some climbing to do:
After climb arrived to this. I think great place to end day:
End of day 24 surface map. I have marked my Start/Finish crater:
Day 24 was 50km (total is 2207km). Climbs take time. Great pics today, moon looks great in daylight.
Tee hee! [haha]I sense the nascence of Alec's next club.
Yeah fuel thing is not out of question. I usually refuel when SRV shows warning, but could have missed it. Will try refueling SRV 1 when i'm back at starting location (will use SRV 2 to reach starting point).What happens sounds like something that happens to me sometimes, which is when I don't pay attention to fuel and run out of it.
We share the same fervid imagination then, because I noticed the same! It already happened more than once since 3.0 hit...just take a stroll around the ship, break a bunch of rocks, check that strange signal 2 km away, fuel reserves at 25%, take a look from the edge of that crat-fuel reserves at 25%! How the heck, I didn't even got far away enough to dismiss the ship!btw it might only be my imagination, but in my opinion after last patch SRV started using fuel like crazy . Probably my imagination. I think i refuel maybe once per 1hr, or per 1h30min, and will usually refuel when hitting 25% warning. Dont know if that is too much or normal.
