SRV-Odysseus is an abandoned SRV on Alshat A 6 b at located at 28.1919, -29.9899 (in Live/4.0 and Legacy/3.8).
The location of this site can be found by following the three nearby listening posts located in:
Col 285 Sector LJ-P c6-17 / Col 285 Sector ML-Z b15-5 / HIP 98328
An audible mayday call can be heard on arrival at the site:
Mayday, Mayday, we’ve survived a crash and need help. We’re stranded and our supplies are running low. I’m including my coordinates with this transmission.
There are Engineer Materials scattered around the ground, along with an Occupied Escape Pod and a canister of H.E. Suits.
The SRV contains an SRV Comms Log Uplink, and is next to a transmission tower and Settlement Comms Log Uplink, scanning them both gives background to the reason for its abandonment:
NOTHING LEFT BUT HOPE 4/5
I must have fallen asleep, I didn’t mean to, but I’m exhausted.
Oldham has gone, he left a message saying he felt like stepping outside for a while.
He’s been gone hours and by the looks of it he didn’t take any of the food or water with him. What could have possessed him to do this.
I’m going to follow his tracks and with any luck I’ll find him alive. I don’t want to be alone out here.
I found Oldham. He was just sitting there as if he was in a park back home. Then I saw his visor was open. Oh god what am I going to do.
NOTHING LEFT BUT HOPE 5/5
The air is reaching toxic levels. My only chance is the escape pod we recovered from the ship. And to think I laughed at Oldham for strapping that thing to the roof. Now it could be my final resting place.
Clark and Oldham are gone, the SRV is dying on me, I don’t have any food or water.
I have nothing left but hope.
Nothing has been observed from scooping the Occupied Escaped Pod or bringing it anywhere.
The listening posts originally pointed to Col 285 Sector PP-N c7-12, however nothing was found in the system and was found to be a flaw with the listening posts that has since been corrected.
CMDR Steve Kirby identified a flaw in the Listening Post firmware and provided an improved decoding that led to the site.
