THE FORMIDINE RIFT MYSTERY (Part 4)

Well done for providing this! Excellent work. I only noticed one detail missing, the names of the ships that formed Salomé's escort to the Daibo system (which were destroyed) were significant. You may wish to add that.

Cheers,

Drew.
From Galnet:
[...]Wreckage found in Daibo has been positively identified as belonging to the Imperial Cutter 'Diadem' and the Imperial Clippers 'Cypripedium', 'Velum', 'Monile' and 'Vestimenta'.[...]

Diadem
ˈdʌɪədɛm/
noun
a jewelled crown or headband worn as a symbol of sovereignty.
synonyms: crown, coronet, tiara, circlet, chaplet, headpiece, headband, fillet, wreath, garland;

Cypripedium
Cypripedium is a genus of 58 species and nothospecies of hardy orchids; it is one of five genera that together compose the subfamily of lady's slipper orchids (Cypripedioideae). They are widespread across much of the Northern Hemisphere, including most of Europe (one species), Russia, China, Central Asia, Canada the United States, Mexico, and Central America. They are most commonly known as slipper orchids or lady's slipper orchids; other common names include moccasin flower, camel's foot, squirrel foot, steeple cap, Venus' shoes, and whippoorwill shoe. An abbreviation used in trade journals is "Cyp." The word "Cypripedium" is derived from the Late Latin: Cypris, from Ancient Greek: Κυπρις (Kypris), an early reference in Greek myth to Aphrodite, and Greek: pedilon, meaning "sandal".

Velum
/ˈviːləm/
noun
a membrane or membranous structure, typically covering another structure or partly obscuring an opening, in particular:
ANATOMY

ZOOLOGY
a membrane, typically bordering a cavity, especially in certain molluscs, medusae, and other invertebrates.

Monile

- Collar
- Jewel

Vestimenta

You are getting close.

Cheers,

Thanks, hopefully I'm interpreting that correctly as we've managed to narrow down the search zone with the recent co-ordinates.

yesterday i had the bad idea to engage a combat with one of those 'defence system' ship.
my hull now is at 64% and i am searching something on the surface of a planet with more than the Earth gravity force. :/

Well ... i landed on a black square ... but it was night, so i made a couple of rounds with my SVR and nothing more.

The new 'rift thread, I presume?

Did anyone get a chance to see if audio of the planets with a camp are in any way different to those on the same planet type with no base camp?

Sorry, too far away right now to test myself.... You'll want to be about 20m-30Mm away, and be as quiet as possible, pointed at the planet and listening to the soundtrack. I have a hunch the audio team may have been nice enough to give us a clue (they do with most things...)

Conflux PRU AESCS NC-M D7-192 A 3 A - more people are declaring help with search - that is great :)

PS - the spreadsheet - anyone played Quix? ;)
Just let me get up this one more Imperial Rank (Just trying to find the Rank Mission) and I'll head up there.

So what you're looking for is a pair of sparkly see-through knickers?

It's ok, I can see my coat...
 
Got a very faint hit on the wave scanner in the upper band on EAFOTS GL-Y E2 6... 20.6251, 13.0389 bearing 214-215...
Will follow and report back...

EDIT: Crashed NAV beacon POI - nevermind :( I'm getting excited at any blip now... someone better discover something soon... i can feel the space madness setting in!

Going to go see if I can squeeze some more range out of my Asp, and get same L5 dirty drives for speed... Though I wouldn't get there for 24hrs at least, seeing as I have an early start tomorrow.

Z..
 
If Frontier Support says no to placing me back out in the Rift (which is highly likely), I'm going to work on a hunch I have and grab an Unknown Artefact before heading back out there... might swap over to G5 Dirty Drives from my Clean Drives to see what extra speed I can get. I probably won't go A-rated, because in the sacrifice between thruster strength and jump range, I'm still feeling jump range is more valuable. I just need to be more careful on high-G planets, especially with the lateral thrusters.

My plan is to variously drop and scoop the UA around the Rift and see if anything happens.

Does anyone know if anyone has done this before? Is it worth trying?
