UAs, Barnacles & More Thread 5 - The Canonn

I´ll get me an UA and try to release it in orbit close to the each planet in Merope. Maybe it changes it´s behaviour and shows to another point when close enough. I´ll keep you updated...
Someone, I don't remember who, posted a few pages back that the UA drifted when released in orbit. It might be worth checking if this drift goes against the direction one would expect. While the head of the UA may always point to Merope, maybe they tend to drift in the direction of Large Barnacles.
I don't think this will be the case, but still worth a test, in my opinion.
As I picked up a new UA on the way back from the California Nebula, after losing the last one smearing my Cobra all over some planet, I will give this a go tonight. I might also, for a change, bring the UA along in the SRV for a while, assuming it'll survive the drop test(s).

MB is probably sitting in the office right now, checking logs from the weekend, giggling like a school girl about the many times we missed them by a hundred meters.
 
So, pleiades region five, second star, 5th and 6th planets 0by0 or polar regions.

Does this make sense? I'm at work.
I like it.

And '5' could mean 5-stars system, or 5th brightest(hottest) star in Pleiades

And ''Thursday's night'' might be another pointer there - could it be that we need to look at night side? Why ''Thursday'' though? Hmm...

It could be the fifth of the seven sisters by brightness, number of stars, number of planets, alphabetically or by mythological age. I can't think of another way of ranking the seven sisters.
 
I was there today on Pleione 3A, which has a huge crater near one of its poles. Very beautiful with Pleione 3 in the background!

However, I. lost my ship as I left with the "leave planet-go into supercruise-hit planet suddenly appearing in front of you" bug. Had to fly the 500Ly back *sigh*

Not a lot of POIs curiously. On Merope yesterday, they popped up regularly, but on Pleione... nothing.
I had exactly the same on Saturday whilst exploring what is probably the very same crater (very large and steep sided). The moon also has very low gravity iirc 0.04g and in addition to the bug you had I also had a relog incident, where I spawned several km above the surface and had some skimmers drop out of the sky - seems to be a planet surface "collision detection vs visible model" issue.

Could you listen for the whale songs? A UA normally alternates between two distinct whale songs. What I'd look for is it starting to only sing one.

I found if you put two UA together they each play one whale song only.

Age, distance from some other point, colour.

Lil wiki quote about Thursday:
The name is derived from Old English Þūnresdæg and Middle English Thuresday (with loss of -n-, first in northern dialects, from influence of Old Norse Þorsdagr) meaning "Thor's Day".[URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thursday#cite_note-1"][1][/URL][URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thursday#cite_note-2"][2][/URL][URL="https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thursday#cite_note-3"][3][/URL] Thunor, Donar (German, Donnerstag) and Thor are derived from the name of the Germanic god of thunder, Thunraz, equivalent to Jupiter in the interpretatio romana.
So might point toward actual Jupiter in Sol (if this message isn't related to barnacles - which might very well be the case)

Or might point towards gas giant of Jupiter type in Pleiades somewhere

Thank's for thinking about it. Seems you where the only one in thread #4 that has contributes to this nice posting from "VerneAsimov" ...
 
You mean a hint like the given and published one since a few days (08.01.)? https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php?t=195658&p=3385999#post3385999
That would be great, wouldn't it? ...:D... (dead centre, perfect viewing high:cool:)
Interesting, what system was that log entry get given out? Looking at the Pleiades system names, I got:


  • Pleiades Sector PR-5 R2 5-6 (dead centre, perfect viewing height might mean equatorial or polar sites?).

Unfortunately, there is no Pleiades system with that name. So, maybe 'tickets for the game' needs to be interpreted somehow too. Hnnnngggnngngngngg.

@ FIXED POINTS OF INTEREST:

As it has been said, normal PoI show up at a heigth of between 6 down to 1.6 km.
So does that mean that PoI appearing at 13.6 km (as in the picture) are fixed ones?

Could not find any discription of fPoI...

I'm still unsure of what the "blue dot" people are talking about is when talking about POIs. If they mean the area that comes up on the radar, it's more purple than blue and it's definitely more than a "dot".
POI Zones vs Persistant POI sites

- POI: Blue zones on your radar, best effect at altitudes 1.5km - 1.8km. Above 2km and higher the Zone may increase in size on your radar.
A POI is Non-persistent. It'll dissapear on reconnect or a session change.
You need to trigger the visibility of a POI on ground by getting close enough, range depending on POI may be 2-3km.

- PPOI: No indicator on Radar. It may be visible from 15km or so depending on your graphic settings.
It's sharable between commanders, altough you may experience a glitch where the site is not spawning.
 
So I wake up to 10 new pages on this thread and think "wow! maybe someones found one and that's what all the commotions about"
But no, nope, this thread is just getting a whole lot more attention than ever before (and it already got a lot!)

I will be continuing my hunt for clues around the bubble, checking news stories, following up on Palins history etc.
Hopefully I can find something that helps soon!

(also tell me if you find griefers in the Pleiades I have a Vulture parked nearby)

It's on the OP now. :D

No, I´ll jsut watch them, cause i think the audio is another layer of information, not essential for finding them barnacles. At least I think so atm. Keep it simple.

Star radius, mass or actual, not mythological, age could be other factors.

If it turns out to be a lead to something interesting we'll have to remember CMDR VerneAsimov's name for historical purposes. That's for sure.
But even bigger first-discoveries could lie buried in these fast moving threadnoughts.

Back to Thursdays and games: If this message is pointing towards Jupiter in Sol, then this whole thing might be related to another even more mysterious alien artefact mentioned by devs. That one was found somwhere in Sol and no one know what happened with it afterwards or what it was.

So wait, if there's no indicator how exactly do you find them?

Also, I've only been searching 2-5km for the purple zones that pop up; I never knew there was any other kind

It says right there, they are visable from 15km, you find them with you eyes (and yes, it really is very hard to spot them)
