By chance, I came across a Guardian Structure today. I was actually moving to another one, further away, but there just happened to be one in the system I was in. It's on Synuefe HP-E B45-8 D 3, close to -42.601933, -155.-653214. Should be within viewing distance from that point. Quite and eery place...
After approaching the structures and rummaging around for a bit, I was startled by a few waves of drones (Guardian skimmers) attacking me, but I managed to fend them off in my SRV. They shot missiles after me, but they were actually quite easy to shoot down. Well, if you're not also enduring direct fire from them. The drones were pretty hard to kill, however, so it's recommended to use the most expensive SRV ammo refill, and stand far back to shoot down the incomming missiles.
I'm trying to get that long range Guardian FSD booster, but it would seem I'm still a blueprint and a some 11 Guardian Technology Components away from getting it.
The system also has some other interesting phenomenæ.
This seems to be a pretty sweet system with a water world and plenty of high metal worlds. Gonna see if I can't fill up my FSD injector.
OMW to find some sweet Guardian loot so I can finally equip an FSD booster for my AspX. Been doing some tourist runs in Robigo up until now, just to find a better ship. I also found out that bumping turrets can be cool, especially if you build a bumper fit! :)
Currently I have a Viper Mk. IV fitted for bumping turrets. Did the Robigo runs in a AspX outfitted for tourism.
Now, off in my AspX Explorer I to hit those sweet Guardian sites. (Oh jeez, I hope it's not the end of me!)
Over 1200 jumps. Over 80 million credits earned on exploration, and a slew of first discoveries. And some 29 million earned on the mission. Despite the inordinate amount of jumps that took, I'm OK with that! :)
I may have gone in over my head. Travelled well over 100 jumps, but still have 495 jumps left to the kernel of the galaxy. Got VIP passengers too. Oh man...
A good day today. I finally got to the place that sells discount Asp Explorers. Here's my build: https://coriolis.io/outfit/asp/0pitfFflidfsnf5------000208083c4d020iv62i2f.AwRj4zOUSA==.CwBjEYy6GYCYaMgsQ===?bn=Ra
Trying out EDSM, and so far it's a bust. Nothing shows up even I copied the API into EDDiscovery.
Here's how I made it work:
tl;dr: Changing the EDSM name to small caps in EDDiscovery settings fixed the problem! :)
