Alien mega-structure!

Postby HAMM3R » Wed Jun 15, 2016 11:34 pm

Clickbait titles FTW! :mrgreen:

Anyway, came across this weird gigantic ring anomaly around one planet. Has anyone else seen these? I'm guessing it's just a GFX glitch, seems to be a lot of those in this current version. I did some flybys but didn't dare go through in case it happened to have collision attributes of any kind.

But then again, who knows.. the planet had ammonia-based life...

Scooping fuel is very much like making love to a beautiful woman. First check the target is hot enough,
then approach slowly. Once close enough, pull out your scoop and fill her up. After you're done just
gently pull away, turn around and leave.

Where do you see the anomaly? All I am currently seeing is a ring planet with the planets shadow over it :)

That giant ring happens to be blue? Yeah... That's your target reticle.

Look closer ...

Wouldn't say it looks alien, yet it is bloody huge indeed.

Ahhhh! The brightness and contrast on my monitors is sh.. er rubbish. Thanks for the enhanced image!

I guess a big enough planet could have a very extensive ring around it?
