Alien Ruins Discovered!

ALIEN RUINS FOUND!

Congratulations to CMDR XDeath, who first triangulated the position of the system, by analysing and triangulating star patterns on the trailer, and then found the ruins!

Even DBOBE has congratulated on the FD Forums, although it was not anticipated to be found quite so quickly...

Note: Those coordinates may be flipped now. There was a bug in 2.2 that Lat/Lon got reversed and it is supposed to be fixed in todays patch.

This is very cool. I bet there is more out there just waiting, but it takes a hint to find these things since there is such a large area to hide them in.

This makes sense, because when Josh, Shabooka, Greytest & I were driving round those ruins last night on Josh's livestream, we found quite a few bugs and glitches in the alien artifacts there. One assumes FDev were hoping they'd have a little longer to iron those out behind the scenes before we stumbled across them...

I was at Engineer Ram Tah in Meene, and decided to go look at the blue Pleiades and look for the space wreck, and arrived at Obsidian just as XDeath posted on the Canonn Discord.

Too late in the day to jump back :(

i've had a few comms messages not appear (though i do receive the incoming message alert) so i don't know whether i hit a valid combination or not with those attempts

also had a few Adjudication Errors from scanning objects
