|Old Theories||New Theories (+ Updates)|
|COORDINATE LINE AMONG MEROPE 5C||Starting from the coordinates center (0/0), head towards 318 degrees (south east, corrected as per navigation bug, thanks robert). Report any findings the usual way||Heading bug was fixed several updates ago, so the coordinate line is probably between 90 and 180 now. That said, this theory has been investigated thoroughly since it was first proposed and so far nothing has been found. It may still be valid, but it is unlikely.|
|FINDING IN MEROPE 5c: DAMAGE ZONE (-36/142)||FINDING IN MEROPE 5c: DAMAGE ZONES|
Today a cmdr reported that he was receiving random module damage while flying over merope 5C. I headed to the coordinates -36/142 and, after a few minutes I experienced the following:
-Random damage to my modules
-Module malfunction -chaff fired on its own, failing thrusters, etc-.
-I was unable to land despite being perfectly aligned with the ground
-The damage stopped when I boosted upwards, at a few kms from the ground. Can´t tell how high, though.
(I literally rebooted my ship when I was on free fall O_O. So close, mate!).
THE REPORTED COORDINATES FOR THIS ARE -36/142, but there are reports of this event happening somewhere else in the planet. I urge any cmdrs to explore this zone with extreme precautions. That is, bring an AFM unit with you. There is a theory that says that this damage is triggered after entering on silent running. Still to be proved.
|The Damage Zone phenomenon was investigated at the time it was reported and determined to most likely be the result of a bug. A report from Michael Brookes also suggested that it was a bug shortly afterward. It was investigated again recently (just before the first Large Thargoid Base structures were found) and no damage zones were reported despite thorough flyovers of the coordinates. We can consider this report to be debunked.|
|Theory: The symbols in the UP spectro correspond with symbols from the Machine Spectrogram. Possibly these symbols describe systems. For instance, --| seems to indicate Merope, while -|| seems to indicate the yet unknown system on the right, perhaps whatever the UP is searching for? We still do not know what |-- and -|- indicate, though -|- does seem to be connected to the Unknown Links.|
|I believe the UL spectrogram is an instructional image that show how to interpret the data received from the rest of the message received.|
In the message there are three number sets that make up fractions. Each number set is followed by a pause.
The first number set corresponds to the distance from Merope to the destination system.
The second number set corresponds to the distance from the source system to the destination system.
The third number set corresponds to the distance from Col 70 FY-N c23-1 to the destination system.
in the diagram we see the octal for 001, 010 and 011 which corresponds to 1, 2,3.
the image on the left, (1) is Merope. The waves represent the distance from merope to a destination system.
the image on the bottom (2) is the source system. The waves represent the distance from the source system to the destination system.
the image on the right (3) is presumed to be Col 70. the waves represent the distance from the Col 70 system to the destination system.
I believe that this explanation could be applied retroactively to the UP Spectrogram by applying the logic of the data received and comparing their order to the octal numbers written around the source image.
