Well, then I'll start with what we already knew about... but:

Cryovolcano on val, they erupt from time to time, greatly increasing their visibility from a large distance. I did not observe any eruptions once I got close, but maybe I didn't wait long enough. They always have at least the plume to help spot them though.

FYI, you can't get surface samples or EVA reports, I guess you need the scanning arm:

And Laythe's geyser.

This one also periodically erupts, I don't think  I saw an eruption from the distance, but I did see one up close:

3:25 - Eve crystals?

3:27 - Eve lava rock?

Yep. I'm actually back in 1.6 to finish a mission I had going on so I can't check for sure, but the names you give them pretty much sum them up.

Thanks for the information

Here are my mun images

They're all mun stone and as always... you can use them with credit. More on https://maarlandersinnovation.wordpress.com/2019/06/02/surface-rover-expedition-begins-with-a-mun-trip/

According to the files, there are large and small variants of crater features, I'm not sure which one this is

XgR3U51.png

and a rock again... hard to spot, very hard to notice its not a normal terrain scatter, hence why mine are turned off:

In the future, I think I'll use the cheat to find them, and have scatters turned on

Is there information available on which specific biomes these show up in?

Good question. My understanding is that the features are biome-specific and some biomes may have none.

Easily found in the game files:

I did a lot of extremely low passes at 180m/s on Minmus and have yet to find anything that is obvious. Will keep yall posted as I go the polar route tomorrow.

Awesome! thanks, I don't personally have much of a clue when it comes to delving into the internal plumbing of KSP

You can find them west from the KSC. Just fly about 200m above terrain and keep the eyes open

I'm on the hunt for eeloo bergs next (I've modded them so that they should show up at kerbin's poles too)

Is there a way to add them to planet packs without modifying Squad's file? I'm assuming it would be through an MM patch, but does anyone know how? It looks like GPP won't be updated with them and I'd rather make a quick and dirty patch for myself than starting over a new career

I'm thinking a similar file in the planet pack would work, but I haven't tried yet, I'm trying to unlock the tech tree in stock, then land or recover everything before using kopernicus
