One day, I was reading a newspaper, when I saw an article on scientist theorizing the presence of ice pyramids on Europa. The picture given with the article was small pyramids of ice on some mountain in South America, and they looked so much like Pol's terrain scatter that it got me thinking... After some googling, I found this article on Wikipedia - apparently these ice formations are called Penitentes, and are found in cold but extremely dry areas - like Pol! The article also has references to the presence of such formations on Europa and Pluto, both icy worlds. So, since Terrain Scatter has been there for a long time, I'm somewhat surprised to see no references to this fact. Kinda interesting, don't you think? Pol terrain scatter Penitentes in the Atacama Desert So I conclude that Pol is actually an icy world - maybe a comet or something? idk
I put down a robotic miner onto Pol. I hit one of the high areas show by the orbital survey scanner. I put down my drills, and they pull in a bit less than .002 (whatever units). A bit less than on Minmus but OK. But I'm so far out, I figured I would use fuel cells, since they seem to work OK as supplements to solar closer in. But Drills + ISRU conversion is a net loss. It takes more fuel to power them than they produce. Am I just screwed? What do people use for power in such a situation? Just accept that you will need a bunch of heavy nuclear units?
I had a similar problem a short while back. Click this, and then imagine it's on Pol. I do have a little bit of fuel left in the ship. Possibly enough to get to orbit; definitely enough to putt across the surface in case I have to meet up with a rescue ship. So, yeah... ...Screenshot?
Hello All. Well. Pol is Bugged. Pol is Bugged since ? (eons ?) If i land on Pol i seriously explode in Mid Space (200 from 800 in Space above ground) or if by sheer luck i manage to land, go to space center and back (Or load a game) My ship/Flag is suddenly 200 to 800 meters in deepspace. This is known for long times. (read this half a year ago somewhere else) (eons?) Does anyone know if the devs are planning to do something about that or do they decided because with all the new airplane parts noone would go to pol anyway so we can let this Bug as it xor ignore it, and concentrate more on airplane parts anyhow ??? This really *sucks* because Pol is the First Moon you get to if you enter the Jool System. Does anyone know if the devs already stated this as a Game feature ? (if then, nevermind then, remove pol please) Is there a mod what fixes that (well i would pay for eh, uh, ah, i forgot, i ALREADY paid for the game, whats the Problem with fixing that collision mesh ?) greetings PS: i refer to Bug #5235 in the Bugtracker. i strongly guess that the state '10% done' only assumes that someone from the dev's team just tried out and found out that the bug exists. this was 4 months ago. It would be better to remove the Moon from the game at all than leaving something in that doesnt works. im just so pissed on that. Besides that im just Proud that i made it to the jool system and back without mods. hard stuff. Makes fun if you get the 5 minutes while gameplay you did not get krakened from bugs. PPS: this Bug exists since >1 Year: Related to Bug #3423 Related to Bug #2501 Related to Bug #2049
