I started off by taking the SRV out for a spin on the planet I landed on last night. After finding a fair number of outcrops near each other, two containing the ever elusive Vanadium, I can now refill my AFMU. I also found the remains of a ship, a few canisters of narcotics and personal weapons, plus two occupied escape pods.
Space madness of course caused me to fly into a star, not sure why. I guess I’ll never know.
I also saw a star and called it out as a TTV before the scans came back, just because it was either huge or TTV given my distance from it. A couple of jumps later though, I decided to repeat the manouver while jumping to hyperspace and promptly fried all my equipment. It was only 137%!
On reaching Waypoint 3, I was slightly disappointed to discover a binary system with no planets at all, so I proceeded a few jumps further on to find a planet to land on, where I found a whole bunch more materials including the much needed zinc, and my first bit of mercury. But onwards I must go if I’m ever going to catch up with FastLizard4.
The system I’m parking up in tonight has a really cool looking high metal content world, with what looks like highly active volcanic activity. Anyway, I decided to set down on a rocky planet, and did a stupid and came in too fast for orbital cruise. Oh well, another incident to chalk up.
Overall, today has been really good, only a couple of incidents and given how much progress has been made, I’m quite happy!
