I wanted to start a thread for my more involved and better organised discoveries.
-------------------------------------

I shall start with a quartz planet orbiting a lonely S10 star, the least explored stars.

When I first came down to the surface of the planet, it appeared as most quartz planets do: Flat.

The planet had a purple surface and glass-like rocks.

But....here is where I thought this seemingly simple planet may have been something slightly different...possibly Felisian related. After leaving my previous landing point, I came down near some hills...but one looked....different.

Upon closer inspection, the hill was lighter in color and was sparkling with minerals....i had an odd shape to it....like it had been dug in to.

I wasn't really convinced by my own theory of the hill being drilled into for mining purposes...until I saw the other side....the other side of the hill was normal...flat, dull, and no minerals...but the first side was chock full o' minerals and sloped inwards....spooky and confusing.

More later.

I wouldn't be surprised if that hill was mined. After all, quartz planets are where Stardrifters are made. I bet those pyramids you can find on some (or all?) quartz planets have to do with ancient Stardrifter (or other Felysian craft, for that matter) construction.

I have seen a pyramid-like object on a couple qurtz planets...and even a couple dusty, craterized ones.

I haven't seen craterized ones, but on every quartz planet I come across, I refuse to leave until I find atleast 2 or 3 pyramids. It usually prooves successful.

Here is an interesting system.....the companion star is just 2.37 dyams away from the main star...also, please note the eclipse in the picture.

I'm still in the system now...but the eclipse planet is a thick atmosphere I think.

EDIT: I landed on a craterized planet in the system...look at the double suns....I think the radiations are the reason why the planet is such a pale gray color.

http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a96/EvilDunsparce/00000449.jpg

The planet also has some of the tallest and most narrow rocks I have ever seen....they look like mini ruins!

-------------------------------------------

Found another thick atmosphere planet...with a huge 3 sector long canyon...that has massive crystals in it....the first picture is of the crystals...the second in the canyon itself.

The planet had a faint belt of unknown qualities in the atmosphere...when I landed...nothing seemed different.

http://i9.photobucket.com/albums/a96/EvilDunsparce/00000455.jpg

the suns appeared as shimmering dots in the sky from this planet.

-----------------------------------------

Another thick atomosphere planet had this lone pink dot in the atmosphere...there were none like it on the rest of the planet.

When I landed there I found a HUGE crater....the green sky was found no where else on the planet...so I believe that a large object from space must have smashed into the planet, throwing chemicals and minerals violently into the atmosphere...perhaps sometime in the future...the green sky would fade...

Thanks....I like your derelict Stardrifter....what happened to that thing...or maybe it's just an older model

There's no window that i can see on the left side. It's definately older than say, 5 epocs..... I think.

Good pictures Tacogeddon.

EDIT: I don't know if it's polite to post pictures on someone else's discoveries thread, but I read one of your other discoveries threads and saw a frown face. Heh, beat this:

Scary, eh?

i don't mind pictures in my thread...Spooky planet

Wonder what the surface looks like...I have also seen four craters inside themselves...Four objects hit the same spot!
