Sounds like HR 1772 A1 :) unfortunately that SRV bug is known and seems to be rearing its head a lot here since so many people are out in them so often right now.

Edit: Ninja'd by Edard
Random SRV explosions is a known bug, or at least it was in the previous client version.


Edit: Too late ^^.
I see a vehicle recall and lawsuit. Was the emission test faked as well.
 
Had a strange event, probably not related. Was driving around on HP... erm... 2217? One of the seven sisters anyway, first planet, high metal, 1.5ish G (you can see, i'm a man of precision!).

Driving around the massive crater there, the one with the green glow look and its bottom is covered in mist (it kind of fits with the video right?). Well, driving along, plenty of fuel, hull at 87%. And suddenly, without any obvious cause, my SRV exploded. Bizarre! I might have to revisit that crater.

Side question: Has anyone tried loading a UA into a SRV and tried driving around, and listening?
Edit - okay if it's a known bug, that's cool - but I'll leave my comment here anyway...

These SRV insta-deaths bother me greatly. I've clocked up around 200km and never had anything like this - and that's with some pretty dangerous driving (well, falling to be more precise!)...

I know 200km is nowhere near the top amount, but if there were a bug causing it, I'd have expected to have experienced it by now?

There's no sound in space, so the ship simulates sounds, because humans are more effective when all of their senses are engaged. You can tell this when you canopy blows out, and your ships speakers have no more media to transmit through.
So what's the points turning the ship sounds off if you don't hear anything?
 
when you say "humming" do you mean the sound of the planet in the system map?
Just checked to see what you mean. It is different from the system map. More like a deep low frequency hum.

Interesting: On the system map, the moons sound different, but more similar to each other in space.

I was there earlier today. High gravity kept pulling me down craters, but I see what you mean about the mist.

A lot of gold canisters lying about, though.
 
theory time....

If thew Merope star is a RELAY for the messages from the UA...

Then you would need a place in land to safely recieve those messages...

since we cannot go to any planet on MEROPE, only the moons, even if they were tidaly locked theres only TWO places on each moon that would have contact with the STAR all time , THE POLES....

Indeed.
While driving around there, my SRV spontaneously exploded (hull>80%). Has anybody else such an accident?
Twice, hull at 80% or above - driving straight ahead, self combusted.
Aka the self-combusting ships incident right after gamma in 2014.

Yes, people have been driving around with it quite a few times. Here's Daddio is playing with it right now: http://www.twitch.tv/daddio66
 
im at the mentioned coordinates on merope 3c with cmdr de rosa and something just exploded. i heard 3 exploding sounds but i cant see anything.
 
Simple Question to MB (and to everyone else): Are those Green Areas on Landable Planets have any Relationship to the Barnicles? Or why are they Green and look like a Garden Center sometimes?

Theory time: I wonder if we are looking for a needle in a haystack within the Paledies, perhaps a clue to the correct planet might be with interesting sounds on the system map. (different types of planets emit different sounds on system map).
