Today we'll be looking at a specific planet in a particular star system in a galaxy far far away. It is a fairly rudimentary dwarf planet with temperatures leaning towards the cold side. There's no atmosphere to speak of but plenty of craters and other geographical features. Of course this makes it ideal for this little challenge.

In the following pictures there are several landmarks. Your task is to find as many as you can. Some of them are fairly obvious, some not so obvious and some that will require scouring the planet's surface with a fine tooth comb. The more difficult ones are worth more points. If you wish to prove your findings, post a screenshot of each one. Try to keep your screenshots as spoiler free as possible.

There's no reward for earning the most points besides bragging rights. There's also no set time span for how long this challenge will last, aside from a new version being released which may remove the planet from existence.

Also you must use an unmodded version as mods may cause this planet not to generate. For future reference this planet was generated under version 0.9.7.1 beta.

Planet Address: RS 1167-3-5-2486-0 A4


I call this one Mordor. Frosty mountains encompass a somewhat squared valley. No towers though. 2 points.


Stegosaurus Crater. 2 points.


A crater within a crater. Less specific and harder to find. 5 points.


Two large, similar craters practically holding hands with a third smaller crater merging into the first. Fairly easy find. 1 point.


Demolished crater edge. Must be very old to appear so rough. 5 points.


Crater Mountain. On Earth this might be mistaken for a volcano but it is obviously a crater in this place. You'll have to do some scouring for this one. 15 points.


Frosty Crater. 2 points.


A family of craters along the wall of another crater. A little tricky but a keen observer should be able to find it. 15 points.


Margarita Crater. Smaller than some of the others but fairly unique. 5 points.


A family of smooth craters. These could prove challenging given their nature. 25 points.

I think it would be more fun if we had an entire system to explore instead of just one planet.

Also, you should make some actual point rules instead of giving things points at will.

The famous Stegosaurus Crater



How do you keep the higher resolution images when posting - mine have lost a lot of sharpness when posted here.
