I think it's a case of these things glow and would look cooler on a trailer if they were to be shown in the dark nothing more.If you are going with a strict tidal lock planet then you'd have to eliminate systems that feature multiple stars that way you can literally have a side "where the sun don't shine" to put a more scientific spin on that old insult.
Also may be redundant but don't forget that tidally locked moons may still show their backsides to the sun depending on the main planet's rotation so you can rule those out too.
To summarize if you're looking for a tidally locked world then you're gonig to need a standalone TL planet in a single star system.
My other question is why the dark side though.... yeah the trailer shows what we assume are barnacles on the dark side of a moon (Pink Floyd reference maybe?) does temperature/solar radiation inhibit barnacle and or UA growth? or is it maybe a function that it is easier to see what we are looking for with low ambient lighting? could we be looking for some sort of light emitting object? after all the UAs do light up if they are from the same sort of origin/construction.
We should be focusing on places that seem interesting to a barnacle to be honest.Thanks thats a huge hint.
If they are randomly seeded then yeah its going to take time. I've been focusing on places that may seem interesting to a human.
PEOPLE have dubbed it a large barnacle. The thargoid ships looked like large barnacles.. I don't think that is a coincidence.We should be focusing on places that seem interesting to a barnacle to be honest.
Large Barnacles to be precise.

What was interesting to the Thargoids?
see the first post in that thread, all your questions will be answered@MB as your about at the mo could you clear something up for me please.
When a player submits a Galnet post what is the criteria for getting one on.
does it have to be just well written or does it have to be something that will not take us in the wrong direction? or both?
