HELLO, my name is Timothy Rawlings, or if you'd rather my

ingame name, CMDR MadRaptor and it is a pleasure to

bring to you this first edition of GALACTIC GEOLOGIST.

Galactic Geologist will bring to you up to date news on the

latest discoveries in regards to Organics and Geology

throughout the galaxy, as well as highlights of some of the

galaxies greatest geysers, most fantastic fumaroles, and

otherwordly organics.

I hope you join me in thanking all those CMDRS out their,

like yourselves, who put in long, sometimes fruitless hours

searching for these wonderful creations. Fly Safe CMDRS!

does matter

Probably the first tip to make your hunt more

fruitful is to keep things small. The bigger the

body the more places there are for these sites

SIZE

to hide and the more space may be between

each individual site.

RADIUS: 400 or below

METHODS OF

SEARCH

After exiting SuperCruise and upon entering Glide

maintain a -8° - -12° angled descent towards the

targeted search zone. At a height of around 20km a tiny

pinpoint blue POI should appear. If one appears quickly

pull up to exit Glide and begin searching the area where

you noticed the POI appear, sometimes slightly ahead

of or behind you.

Normal -

Choose a suitable location from Super or Orbital

Cruise(Canyons, Splash Craters) and try to exit SC far

enough ahead of you search location that you can glide

from one edge of your search zone to the center, this

should allow you to speed up the start of you search,

once out of glide follow the path of your search zone,

looking for signs of volcanism: Liquid Jets or Plumes of

Smoke.

Not all planets

are equal. Make

TYPE

it easier for

yourself:

1. Rocky

2. HMC

3. Rocky/Ice

4. Ice

(In order of least

dfficulty)

...is money

TIME

It takes time to find these

guys but it shouldn't take a

lifetime. When you find a

suitable location spend 5 -

10 minutes tops exploring

that area, then move on to

the next possible location,

staying no more than

maybe an hour or 2 on any

given planet. There are

enough places out there

it's not use getting stuck

on just one.

* Types of POI: Tiny blue

**Fumaroles: Plumes of

smoke should be visible a

few KMs out

***Geysers: Same as

Fumaroles, a few KMs out

visible jet streams

should appear.

ON THE

GROUND

A G E O L O G I C S P O T L I G H T S E R I E S

The Galaxy is full of amazingly beautiful places that inspire us and

fill us with wonder and amazement. They ignite our imaginations and

fuel our dreams of adventure, mystery, and, yes, even danger.

Among these wonders of the galaxy are little Oases of geological

activity known as Fumaroles and Geysers. In this series we will take

an in depth look at the many great discoveries made by CMDRS

such as yourselves and try to bring those wonders of the deep

closer to you. So join me in thanking all those who explore the

galaxy, seeking out its treasures….and remember to always fly safe.

SMOKEY BASIN


Mokey basin is one of

those places that just calls out to

the soul. Compelling you towards it

and then overtaking you with it's

beauty and serenity. I was coming

back from a trip to one of the local

nebulae and saw this little ball of a

planet, upon scanning it and seeing

it had vulcanism I had to check

things out.

FUMAROLE

7

I remember it was a couple of hours

searching and I was just about to

quit when I noticed these small

white puffs of cotton forming on the

horizon. My heart began to race

and as I flew closer and closer the

site unfolded beneath me, in stack

upon stack of rock and smoke.

I think I spent a good day or so at

that spot, just taking in thie views,

watching as the ringed beauty it

called it's parent transited across

the sky. I never wanted to leave that

place in fear I'd find nothing to

equal it's beauty.
