    Calling all miners!

    THIS COMPETITION HAS NOW ENDED. THANKYOU TO EVERYONE WHO PARTICIPATED

    Two VUs ago a range of new mining loot was introduced and added to a number of bps. Examples are Diagen, Bodai, Quenta, Starrix. I don't know how many there are but there seem to be at least a dozen. While I have seen a little turn up from time to time, some simply arent available. When I ask miners, people generally dont know where they are, despite searching. No one knows if they are deep or shallow, in the desert or the jungle. Meanwhile I have a bunch of bps I can't click. Something has to change. I want to encourage people to go out and find this stuff and to share the location with the rest of the players.

    So I'm running a competition from now until the end of July. To win a prize you simply have to post a screen shot of a new mining loot in this thread.

    1. Screen shot must contain the claim information page so that the location details are visible. If I can't see the coordinates of the claim then the entry is invalid.
    2. The first person to post a shot of a claim for each material will be eligible for a reward. eg there will be one reward for finding diagen, one reward for finding bodai, etc
    3. Only the first post of each material is eligible. It doesn't matter when the material was found, only who posts first.
    4. Only mining loot (ores,enmatter,treasure) added in the 2013.1 Arkadia Update (13/03/2013) is relevant. If in doubt go ahead and post a screen shot and I will tell you. I don't know all the new materials but I do know the old ones.
    5. An avatar can win multiple prizes.
    7. I am the judge of this competition and my decision is final.

    Prizes:
    Each winner can claim his/her choice of one of:
    100 ped
    1 complete set of Koroma armour - gender specified by the winner
    1 Ark-5A
    1 Ark-5D
    1 Asi-11
    1 Asi-16A
    1 Asi-21A
    1 Asi-21D
    1 Cap-20D
    1 Cap-22A
    1 Law-5A
    1 Law-6J
    1 Gyro-Fap 22
    1 Gyro-Fap 26

    All L items will be full TT. The Koroma will be whatever TT the crafting produces. Most of the value of Koroma is in the MU anyway.

    For low level winners, I am open to discussion of a reward of multiple smaller items but at my discretion.

    I will follow up with each winner in forum pm or in game to discuss which reward has been chosen and to arrange delivery (on Arkadia).

    UPDATE TO PRIZES
    The person who posts a valid find of diagen will be able to choose TEN prizes from the prize list, including choosing the same prize ten times.

    A summary of winners will be kept up to date in the second post in this thread.

    Please feel free to ask any questions here in this thread. I'll post a summary of useful Q&A in the 3rd post.

    Q: Can you tell me which materials qualify?
    A: Well it's difficult to be sure but Jan Turisas Hagis posted this helpful list later in the thread:

    Enmatter: Bodai Dust, Gorbek Emulsion, Lotium Fluid
    Ore: Arekite Stone, Cordul Stone, Frakite Stone
    Treasure: Alkar Crystals, Diagen Firedrops, Hexra Gems, Pirrel Pellets, Quanta Flux, Regula Lode, Starrix Nodes

    It's possible there are others, so if you are not sure, take a screen shot, ask someone or just post it and I can tell you if its a pre-exisiting material that doesnt qualify.

    I've found some good stuff. Will keep this thread in mind next discovery. My problem is most of my claims are "unknown" and rare shit disappears after the first extraction attempt very often =/

    Hopefully LBML will pick it up.

    Great idea Kikki.

    I'm open to suggestions on how to deal with Unknown Claims. I need to be able to somehow verify that the material was found at the claimed coordinates.

    If LBML picks it up, it's not one of the resources KikkiJikki is looking for.

    I'd say that showing the mineral in the loot window or in the loot text queue is fine, you can see the coordinates in the radar. Most of these will probably be unknowns. As far as location... I don't think the exact coordinates are going to be real helpful, I think it will be the general area you're looking for.

    it will register a "unknown" and give me the location of the drop. It wouldn't be a screenshot. But that's how most of the rare stuff I get is manually registered.

    I found some of the altice lattice, or w/e and I didn't even realize it until later in my run. (everyonce in a while I forget to register a unknown claim)

    But what I dont want is someone finding one of the new materials, digging it up and teleporting or flying to another area and then taking a screen shot. A screen shot of a loot text queue that also shows position might work out ok. Not comfortable with the loot window though.

    If someone wanted to send ya off course they could summon the claim across the map and then show you.

    So a lot of it has to do with trust too ^^

    I am guessing things got shifted all around recently. I am now finding Wenrex out of taxed zones. Imagine a lot more is available all over the map now.

    if gorberek (sp?) is part of that, I know of 1 general location for it, but only found 1 drop of it so far. was using a lvl 2 amp at the time and got 3 of it (0.4tt each) that sold at 1250%. Not sure if fluke drop or area worth as it was a damn tough (high agro) area to find it in.

    Gorbek is one of the new ones, fairly common actually. Hopefully some of my miners will see this page, we've collected a fair number of these rares.

    Also, KJ, I would recommend that you limit screenshots to the current VU only, most ores have been reshuffled and I would expect the rares to be in different places too.

    The free fraps version will record long enough to see the extraction of "Unknowns" real time... maybe that help you Kikki? They can email you the video via a custom made account for your shops? Then just a post that states EMAIL sent as the time stamp for first one in here on the forum?
