Any idea if silicate magma means mist?
Just quoting David Braben on the mist: "volatiles forming as a mist in a deep crater on a cold, rocky, uninhabited world"
Here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0jE7UhIyRnA

I usually find a lot of mist in cold Rocky worlds. And not only inside Canyons: there are very large flat areas sometime covered with it.

Asking again, do you have any sort of offsite chat/voicechat?
Yes, there is an official TS channel: it will be on the frontpage tomorrow.

In the meantime, here it is:

I know, but for sake of people 'immersion' I don't say how I know, because everyone wants to invest hundreds of hours into scouring planets looking, which is time I don't have.
Without spoiling anything as far as behind-the-scenes mechanics goes... do you know how to find them? Or do you just know in what form they spawn?

Could you go and find one right now if you wanted?

NOTE: I'd rather you didn't but I'm curious as to how much you know.

I don't know where they spawn other than the MB hints, I've just got back from a 32k Ly exploration trip, but I do have a strategy for when I go looking for them which should be efficient.

I will at least be able to establish if they spawn in the game.

Fair play to you then. Good luck and I hope your searches are fruitful! :)
 
Are we all getting the meta alloys mission before we search by the way? I know it's probably been answered already, but are the things a mission spawn?

Dude if you think we enjoy aimlessly driving around staring at rocks you're badly mistaken.
Screw immersion, just tell us what you know already and let's end this stupid grind.
 
HIGH ALERT

The following video was recorded by CMDR Kola2dono on Merope 3C. Notice the creepy noise. Canonn Members have been dispatched to the planet to further investigate this.

Just heard the same sound in Maia B1 BA (31.4190, 64.3462) while searching a deep dark creepy crater

I didn't know that Elite Dangerous was a horror game

Here is the video I recorded a minute ago: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FF6j3ao00YY&feature=youtu.be

I keep having this happen in Merope every single time to these planets EVERY single time too.

Weirder still, the moon that I can land on, Merope 2 A, can be selected from the system map and highlighted in space, but it does NOT show up on my navigation list. EVEN when I set it to just landable moons and planets.

Anyone know what's going on with that?

According to MB we don't need the mission in order to be able to find barnacles. Although AFAIK it's not clear if having the mission makes barnacles easier to find.

Many players, including myself, do NOT want him to do this. The reason is nothing will happen after the 'grind' is finished. Sure, you'll be able to see Barnacles whenever you want... but will it progress the story immediately? No. The search is designed to take time in order for the story to develop at a pace that is easier to digest AND to maximise player input and impact on the story progression.

If you're the kind of person who wants a resolution over the journey, despite the resolution not giving any material or major reward... well... then stop searching.

I hope you do continue to search and I hope you come to enjoy it, but frankly, the search is what players like myself enjoy. Don't take that from us just for impatience's sake.
 
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?
My first sudden boom today came to me after cracking nearly 800km in the SRV. It was pretty rough terrain, but nothing I hadn't seen before and as said, I was still above 80% hull.
