I Hate Green Sandstone

Recommended Posts

So. I got a contract to collect some green sandstone from Minmus. They said I could find it on this flat or that.

I landed a rover and drove all over the relevant flat for a couple hours. Nothing.

I then learned that if your save was from before Breaking Ground, there would be none of the new surface features.

So, I edited my save as recommended in some post.

Still, no sandstone.

I deleted my save and started a new save. Eventually, got the same contract – bring home some green sandstone.

Again, an hour or two in a rover in the designated bioms. No sandstone.

I uninstalled and reinstalled KSP. Started a new career. Got the same contract. Green sandstone which can be found on the Flats, Great Flats, or Greater Flats.

I drove all over the Greater Flats. It took hours. No sandstone.

I drove my rover from the Greater Flats to the Flats. Yeah. I drove there. Drove all over the Flats. Nothing.

I decided I would then drive to the Great Flats from there. Fortunately, I found the sandstone in the Lowlands early on my trip to the Great Flats.

All in all, I think I covered about 500km in this last save alone.

Later, in the same save, I decided to make a research outpost on the Mun's Northern Crater. I had no contract to bring anything back.

The Mun's Northern Crater was so littered with surface features, it made rover piloting hazardous.

Aét-F12 and turn on the ROC finder? I turned it on, and red lines showing them showed up all over the place. They are very hard to spot from a distance though.

The moon of Minmus is rare with the sandstone but one thing for sure is I found two on the whole ENTIRE moon. So it takes patience young padawan... *Says the person

(@The Doodling Astronaut) who made three posts about how they can't get a good fuel amount on dres and got triggered about it*
