I do hereby, hand behind back, fingers crossed (rather ambiguously), dutifully submit  the following to His Honorable Magistrate, Dr Swis, for rulings.

1 and 3 unequivocally discovered. I can't confirm 2 though.

  1. I think the wormhole evaporated when they redid Kerbin's textures, so that may be why you don't see it anymore in 1.11.2. Although on mine it still looks very sandy. But the shape of that patch is unique and spot on.
  2. I do recognise the background, you're in the correct vicinity. I do however not recognise those specific towers. I went and loaded up 1.11.2 and went back and forth in time to see in what epoch those existed... but I can't find them. Any chance those are a residue of Kerbal Constructs?
  3. The only place on Kerbin with that particular structure.

Bingo!!

I don't play Science/Contract.  So the only way to do this economically was to "construct a set", like Hollywood.  And, yes, Kerbal Konstructs.

The "set" was 1-2 km West of the R9 threshold, on the same campus ("green").  It's now gone, packed up.

Your verdict, PASS/FAIL, on this, respecting whatever you think others may feel about it.

(I got caught because that Inner Imp couldn't help adding that third tower!  :) It was fun playing.)

Making it too hard.

I shall read from the Book of Instructions, chapter two, verses nineteen through twenty-one:

And the Jeb spake, saying, 'First shalt thou start a new career, granting thyself the maximum starting funds. Then shalt thou upgrade one facility, no more, no less. One shall be the number thou shalt upgrade, and the number of the upgrading shall be one. Two shalt thou not upgrade, neither upgrade thou zero, excepting that thou then proceed to one. Three is right out. Once the number one, being the only upgrade, be reached, then spawnest thou thy intrepid kerbal, who, being within sight of the Holy Twins of Ginormity, shall explore it.'

Takes all of one minute maybe. Just don't let Jeb start on about the sloths and stuff.

You had me at "First shalt thou...  granting thyself the maximum starting funds"

not to mention that Holy Grenade of Antioch I see you are holding behind your back -- with the pin drawn.

(This isn't going to get me hooked on "Contracts" or something, is it?  I wouldn't like that.)

Here we go then.

"I hereby certify I did this the honorable, correct way" [except for stealing about 1.5 mil kerbux to pay for it].  :)

It took me 15 minutes just to find out how to upgrade a facility (R-click) and I knew I'd accidentally seen it before many times.  Sheesh.

Thou art hereby anointed in the Holy Order of Antioch, having fulfilled the Quest to its honourable completion. :rep::rep::rep:

Well, congratulations to you also, King Solomon, as your 30 ducats are in the mail.  Talents?  Shekels?  Ah, yes, "points".

I've got another one or is this place well known? No mod used. It's so close that you can easily walk there from KSC. It just hides in plain sight.

Got it!

And, well done, too, Akagi; jolly good show.  (Scores will be updated soon[TM])

Found the Nile during an SSTO test

That does look like 0/20E on the equator (near a place I call "Alexandria") and, if so, that would, most unhappily, not be the Nile.  (I will ensconce myself in the Kayak Club Map Room for a couple of enjoyable hours to make a determination.)  More in a day or two, as I am currently vacationing in Denmark.

I call it Lake Pathetic.

And I call that an excellent first try.

Unfortunately however, your spoiler makes your location too obvious.

Spoiler

(And yes, devious Kayak Club members make it a rule to open all spoilers, envelopes, drawers and wallets before embarking upon any momentous mission; and when I say "devious", I mean all of us.  We explorers, you see.)

You opened this, didn't you?  :)  You're well on your way then to being a first-class, tip-top explorer!
