the fact we meet at a [redacted] at rendez vous 2 without glyphs is a big cliffhanger

A friend of mine and I did this by falling off one the spires though it might have been after one of the shady merchants landed and sold us an X class movement module. (I don’t remember which came first.) We went to the peak and flew straight up. That gave us just enough forward motion to miss the mountain on the way down, collect the award, and land on a steep enough slope to get minimal damage (him) and no damage (me). We just slid the rest of the way down. Our peak was high enough that we got the climbing award before reaching the top.

Actually, you can get the counter running by jet-climbing straight up. It’s a glitch, certainly, and it’s not easy to do. But I managed to hit the top of a high pillar (and obviously ascend right on until the jetpack was almost depleted) with 10 seconds already on the timer (timer did not reset because jetpack was still firing from the climb without turning off). Had ramped it up to something like 36 seconds until I hit the ground.

It took a few attempts, and if it hadn’t worked, I guess my next attempt would have involved climbing up there with the minotaur, using it as a booster to eject when its jets are gone, and then use the jetpack for some more. Might have worked, don’t know…

I did it like this, because we can …

I don’t believe this is a bug actually, check tooltip :wink:

Whenever I tried using the jetpack, the seconds counter would reset to zero. I found it impossible using jets, or even some jet assistance. Only falling would work.

Sorry I can’t tell what this depicts, you jetpacked into a ceiling corner …?

Yes, basically build a corner like that and use jetpack until the milestone completes

The minotaur slips on steep slopes, other exocraft handle them much better.

Yes, but they don’t have rockets that go straight up… Well, a jump might have helped, not sure. Main problem was that the bloody needle I was jumping off of didn’t have enough area on the top to summon the minotaur, otherwise this would probably have been the first thing I tried…

Which tooltip?

I didn’t find a tooltip either.

But basically a corner with a roof, it worked for me too.
