UAs, Barnacles & More Thread 5 - The Canonn

Thread Closed: Not open for further replies.
Sorry if it's been said before (not enough time to read everything on this crazy growing thread), but: I suppose there are CMDRs carrying both UAs and meta alloys now. Do their ships continue to degrade?
I've been to the Merope site last night and have a few meta alloys onboard, but never had a UA in my hold. So, I'm wondering, if the MA cure stations does it somehow prevent UA's to harm our ships?


No change. Ship and modules degrade as before with or with out a MA present.


I remember a few post backs. A combination of both Meta-Alloy and UA in cargo hold still resulted in module damage, so no change. I cant sift back to find on what forum page it was mentioned though

Correct.
 
Can someone please explain why there is so much excitement over a few shel rocks on the surface of the planet? I am trying veeeery hard to not be sarcastic here... :S Like VERY.

Because they are new.
And you can even earn some money slaughtering them for their hearts, to be sold on a black market.
Yarr!

In the end, it could just be a zero-G beehive and us
being bad bears stealing honey. ;)

These were some of my thoughts too, however considering another approach, has anyone considered this to be a galaxy map of territories? I wasn't able to find a top-down view online so a patched one together. Pleiades and even barnard's loop fit right in to the section outlined from the logo.


I had a similar thought. what happens if you orient the "smaller blob" shown at approx 7-8 o'clock on the logo over the human bubble?
 
From today's ED Update email:

For those interested to join the massive explorer party that's happening in the Merope system, you can find the barnacles on MEROPE 5 C at the following coordinates: -026.3496° -156.4044°. Meanwhile the search for more barnacles in the area continues, and the scientific Commanders in the community are puzzling over the strange sounds emitting from these unusual objects. What could they possibly mean?

It would appear that we need to spend more time listening to them....(emphasis mine)
 
Unrelated to the current thoughts, but I posted awhile back--THREADS back about Merope 5C and Merope 5B. Something that these two planets have in common is that their metal content is uniquely above the 8.9% mark, which is what every other planet in Merope contains. Any thoughts on this?

My original line of thinking was that these barnacles can't exist on anything above 8.9% (hence why we were to find them first on 5C, the system with the highest metal content), but now I wonder if the barnacles have simply sucked the system dry and are down to the last body. Merope 5B could either contain more barnacles because of its metal content, implying that they populate rapidly, or less, implying that they die off as metal content decreases.

Either way, I'm still thinking along the lines that Merope's got something up with its metal content - 8.9% metal content on 12/14 bodies is below average in terms of what we see in EVERY other system in the Pleiades.

I had a similar thought and posted this earlier. But mapped it on nebulas not the galaxy. E.g. B's loop and Pleiades.
.
If its the galaxy and indicate what they covered, they would be everywhere and since ever. Scary thought.
.
Wasn't there a comment by MB it is linked to their location but he can't comment. Therefore I don't think it's the galaxy. A bit to imprecise to locate them. Well, maybe it's not that important at all. Who knows?
 
The mule?

The religion. When the foundation armed the fleet with nuclear power plants but they were the only ones able to operate it, and could just shut down the whole army without a fight.
I'm strictily against theories here as they won't move the whole thing forward. But can't resist now, sorry.

But how about we leave for ex. Talos 2 alone, see what happens?

If I was an alien flower I'd totally let the little bees take my harmful poo to their home than I'd give them the cure knowing my little UAs are valuable and they'll be taken to the most important places. Than I'd stop producing the good stuff and only the wrecks would remain. We wouldn't spread the "virus" unless we're certain about countering it. Falsly.

Than I could grow my space flowers...everywhere. And continue with my usual tea parties!
 
Has anyone noticed that the Conda wreck on JC-U B3-2 is a double Conda wreck? They are literally stacked on top of each other. Not sure if it is a bug or if it is legit, but I had someone else in wing with me who could confirm that there was two Condas stacked, buried in the ground. Anyone else noticed this?
 
The issue with this is that every planet that they're on isn't tidally locked. That means they won't always be pointing towards the star.

And the barnacles seem plant in nature or function similarly. Plants have an innate instinct to point towards the sun to maximize energy input.

Yea I saw the exact same there today.
 
Well folks here we go again?

Give it a listen. :)

This is the Merope 5C barnacle audio at 20x.

Here is the original 12 minute version if anyone wants to play with it : https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B8ck-2ELKOuLeEZjb3VzdXNqTkk

The purrs are perfectly regular, and they high/low.

Do we have another code?

I am transcribing this as : 0110110101011010011011001010100101010

It looks like it's a very similar pattern to the UA, in that there's never any triple repeat (we never figure out why).

We never decoded the UA purrs. And well it seems whatever pattern the UA is using, the barnacle in principle does the same.

it could be meaningless, I think we hit a dead end and felt that was the conclusion with the UA, but well maybe it's not. =p

Yes I agree on the nebula as focal points, but in those regions.

If they are litreally stacked on top of each other it was likely just a placement faux pas. It's a hand-crafted site, and having two crashed ships on top of each other would make no sense from an artistic or realism perspective.

In my 1sr year at university, there was a code that never had triplets. I thought it was grays codling, but looking that up, seems I was wrong. Well it was over 30 years ago, and I was smashed out of my mind.
