The purpose of the UA was to show the way to the barnacles wasn't it.The message has a specific purpose, and a very different one to the UA.
It's a good point. I am just afraid that we have way too little data to answer to the "whys" or find the context.Not enough 'why' questions being asked here.
I'm sure there's more, but you get my point.
Where does that come from? I don't remember any lore about a Pleiades playground, though I remember something about a Thargoid ship lost in a battle in the Pleiades. References please?It's interesting. Merope was once the playground of the Thargoids. It's like we are all hovering over the ruins of ancient Greece and wondering what we can learn from these ruins... and then someone else turns up with Radar and sees things we can't see because we only have brush and shovel. We then look at what they are seeing and have no clue how to interpret it.
Back to brush and shovel...
Well yes and no, to be fair I had consumed a bottle of Brandy before that conversation, or it may have been surgical spirit I can't recall.Oh does this interview accurately reflect your views?
Haha good to see you also. "Glorious leader" is perhaps a tad strong, but I'll take it and any other complimentary remarks that are going.Woo, good to see you Glorious Leader!

From http://elite-dangerous.wikia.com/wiki/Unknown_ArtefactIn 1.4, the UA will scan all ships within 1 kilometer and is confirmed to point and align itself to Merope, a star system in the Pleiades Nebula that has been linked with Thargoid activity in Elite lore.
I can reasonably confirm that MAs do not affect the audio. I have done most of my experiments with a UA close to the UP or on board when it was in deep space, and almost always had MAs on me.I agree.
I was planning to take some MAs with the UP for my experiments, but then it died.
MOREOVER: do not forget that convoys carrying UPs were carrying MA as well... that could not mean anything... or not.
Anyway, the spreadsheet with the experiments, is on the FP.
wooah!! is he saying they are talking to each other here.
Sorry if I've missed something - how do you define success and failure above? Is it that one signal contains additional detail/info?
I strongly feel like the nature of it is very important. If the devs wanted us to get a clear recording it is only because the Probe, in-fiction, is also demanding that level of focus.Has anyone thought of the reason ships are disabled, then the message is transmitted. Well we know it is really the devs who coded the message, maybe they just wanted to make sure we could get a clear recording, by shutting the ships systems down first.

I also recently carried the ultimate test: honking the probe near on an intact barnacle site, on Merope 5 C, with one fresh uncollected MA on the ground, the UA, the UP and one MA on a spike still. Nothing changed, as far as I know.
