    That's correct, you only get a chance on a SOOTO when you find a claim while mining.

    With regards to this particular thread yes, hence me moving it here.

    In general, I've been playing PE/EU since late 04 and the only SOOTO instances i ever recall are when miners have found robot ships (where the beacons were found). That was my assumption here as well though i'd be interested in learning if anyone else thinks SOOTO instances occur in any of the other professions. Not saying i'm 100% correct here so please don't take me moving this particular thread as an absolute indication on SOOTO things.

    I think in hunting and crafting there are things a bit like SOOTO's but they simply aren't called that way. The clearest example would be crafting. You get the item you craft with some residue here and there and somtimes you find a Blueprint, I think looting a blueprint is the closest thing to the SOOTO in mining since it's an extra item you don't always get at all.

    But the SOOTO as we know in mining, only happens in mining (I've been playing since early 05)

    I was thinking along the lines of

    Crafting Sooto==Rare Blueprints, RL Loot, etc etc
    Hunting Sooto==Rare Drops like Mod FAP, DNA, etc etc.

    Which are out of the ordinary with really high MU.

    Didn't know that Sooto meant the Beacon instances. I thought you all were talking about mining up extremely rare ores and enmats or a very rare UNL Weapon/Armor.

    basicly SOTOO is handisian rock and angel scales... in fomer vu SOTOO were robot spaceship = 100% global (with 50peds residu or if you were lucky beacon + residu).

    SOTOO are UL amp too or special items (like robot invasion hunting items) ... In general SOTOO are rare and profitable :)

    SOOTO can also, as they said, be ultrarare u/l mining amps worth upwards of 20000 ped. I do hope there are some Arkadian specific SOOTO's though

    The term SOOTO was first formed when you got the message while mining when you found hansidian or angelic scales like Pogny says. In the chat window it would read: "You have found Something Out Of The Ordinary." (SOOTO)

    yeah well but these are not lootable by ppl like you and me, it seems like they are manually distributed to "special people" only and not randomly. How I say that? Because you can find on pcf a post from a guy getting 2 ul amps in same claim ;-)

    nothing after 5.6K ped unamped mining...
    I can also predict that if UL bp's don't start to drop soon.. the mining system will be DEAD.
    For now only rescource with some mu left is vorn, but no way one can survive on it.
    Same goes for hunting.. If you don't hit a big esi or TT profit, one can forget about breaking even no matter what skills/gear you have
    Pretty sad to see this
    So long arkadia.. will see again in a few months

    :D

    Now that's just crazy, just wondered on my previous post if it needed some amp to get one on Arkadia... but if even a Rookie finder will do the job, then no worries :p

    Gratz for the find! :)
