At 132 Ls out from the star, I was very much on the 'outer rim' of that particular ring :D
Did you log off/in ? Jump out/in ?
Did you ask somebody else to try ? PC/Console? Bug report ? Did you hear siren's songs ? Did you taste Ol' Pa's pure malt ? Doc's Maria ? Macros the Black's potions ? Han_Zen's chinese mushrooms? ....
Could be a new thing !
Optimistic much ?

My two cents about Romero.
If FD want us to have a chance to find him, then more clues are coming.
If no clues are coming... Forget about it. There isn't even an NPC called Gan Romero flying through the MW.
They just love to keep us hyped and swarming like blind flies across their Stellar Forge. (Most of the time for nothing at all.)
Imho.
Btw... He is not supposed to be flying his own ship, is he ? So is there point in being looking for a "Cmdr" Gan Romero DBX ?
Mmmh ? Oh..yes. Ofc. We always can bet on another FD's usual inconsistency.

I haven't but I heard they are called "obfuscated". :p
Interesting take. Perhaps I've been in-galaxy too short a time (2 months now) to have grown properly cynical, like some others around here.

Here's my 2 cents. The storyline doesn't exist for nothing, maybe that's naive, but I imagine there's a point to it. The fact that previous plots didn't pan out to be as spectacular as others wish doesn't make participation in the greater storyline of a beautiful universe any less worthwhile to me. Perhaps the Halsey storyline never progressed because the players missed the next step, and the Romero line is another crack at the same puzzle. It would seem to cheapen the universe if a "missed" story element were simply handed out after some time to force universe progression - I rather like the concept that Cmdrs were given a couple years to crack it, then when we didn't, we get another shot at it from another angle. It seems, you know, organic. Less "gamey".

Also, looking solely for a comms return for a "Cmdr Gan Romero" would indeed be silly. But looking for his wreck site, or the secret facility he may have been heading to, or evidence of his passing through a system, or any number of other breadcrumbs seems a lot less so.

In any case, being in a full-scale MW is so intellectually stimulating that searching for Romero is, for me, more or less an excuse to fly around for 25,000Ly with some level of purpose - even if it is a fool's errand.

I guess I'm the fool then. A fool who really likes his Krait.

I logged out/in - still the same behavior. Didn't try anything else, since it was late and I just wanted to get out from being masslocked :)
PC.

It's HD 115157, body 12 - the one with the huge invisible ring outside all the orbiting bodies - if anybody is in the area.
It's only 1,700 LY from the Bubble.

I think the dbx, if scanned, would not be in the name Gan Romero but carry the name of the real owner Commander Bjorn Lennox.
 
I used to be CoR. Then I realized that they were more concerned about Salomé... I left as the pull of Raxxla was stronger than the pull of Tionisla.
I spent a brief time in CoR as well but eventually recused myself when I started the Earth Expeditionary Fleet as the exploration wing of the Earth Defense Fleet. EEF never really caught on ... though we do still have that eyesore of a system out in Colonia thanks to Frontier reneging on the system name of our choice after initially giving it a "yes".

CoR was (is?) a great group of people interested in the lore of Elite.
 
Think Zenith used to be a member and used to appear in alien architecture and FRift threads, but his signature says he’s left the forums permanently.

In Tiapalan there is also a very large and thin ring. I crashed into it without seeing it. I wanted to scan that ring with the - how is this new scanner/probing thingy called - you know what I mean. My problem was that you have to target the central body and be close enough to fire the probes. I didn't manage to hit the ring that way. Perhaps you experienced the same with that ring? If somebody know how to hit such a ring with a probe I would be interested in how to do it. If there is no way to probe the ring, it would be a good place to obfuscate something in there… ;)

On entry to a system you use the fss (full spectrum scanner) to identify and locate system bodies. When you find an interesting one you travel to it and use the dss (detailed surface scanner) by using it to fire probes. Target the body and approach it, select “surface scanner” (already set up as one of your fire groups), it will tell you when you’re in range. Zero throttle and enter dss. Fire your probes- move the reticle to align with the marker on the radial line to land a probe on the edge of the body, fire one directly at it, or go beyond the marker but not as far as the “miss” marker (I usually try half way between the two) to land a probe on the back of the body. If there is a body ring then if you move the radial line at some point it will say “ring”, fire then to hit the ring! You only need one probe to scan all the rings of a multi-ringed body.

I believe that if the inner edge ring is too far away from the body, you can't actually fire probes at it. I didn't try to do it with my 132 Ls ring, but there were 4 bodies INSIDE the ring, so I suspect that the inner edge was at least 20 Ls out. There's no way you're going to be able to hit that with a probe.

Edit:
Checked on EDSM and the INNER radius of the ring is 104 Ls. No way that can be probed.

Might not be to do with raxxla but, on the cannon sheet of guardian ruins it is missing, perhaps unintentionally, 4 sites which is present in the NGC 3199 Nebula that a mate of me found, perhaps searching around them for some clues maybe an idea?
Gan Romeo had visions similar to The old president (her name escapes my lips), maybe he went to find more guardian sites or something like that? I’m not sure if his visions etc could have anything to do with raxxla but if they are and he’s connected to the old president who also ‘found’ the guardian sites, then perhaps they are related?

So. Time for mission report: Went to Cimmerians DSS on all landables. Nothing found. Invaded some Imstallations got jaled and earnt some money. Yet nothing

Went to Styx: Nothing of interest.

Siidenote: Also went to Vega and used the FSS on Dixon. Now that might be interesting. Instead of garbled Nonsense there seems to be something about „Lakon“ when you use the FSS. As I'm on PS4 I'm a bit amiss about recording the message. Double checked with the base at Trikora btw. only garbled Nonsense there.

Did you hit Persephone (goddess of the Underworld) yet?
There's a system (contains nothing but an ELW), a station (in Avalon system) and a landable body in Sol system (which only got added to the game around v2.4). You might get some joy from the FSS and DSS.

Edit:
Also Osiris and Anubis might be worth a look-see.
