    OK, this may be a bit of a noob question for lvl 40+, but...
    How do you go about locating big roids in order to complete mining medals?

    Cheers

    There are various Roid databases available.

    Thanks for reply.

    Maybe I wasn't clear enough...
    There seem to be some roid databases about, but they look to me like a list of meaningless numbers. Can someone explain how I use a database to find roids in game?

    Thanks

    Rail.

    those number strings correspond with the modx called a "rotacol". These are spatial coordinates - x,y,z. You can type /rotacol x,y,z and a waypoint will now be selectable in the sector you type it in. Use those coordinate lists to give you what you need to type in.

    JGROTPRO is a helpfull program to aid in finding those roids since it has a location dataset included in it
    .
    p.s. small tip if your going for the big mining medals you can get them in one go so dont do the small ones first and sell and go the the next one . go for the big one from the start you get credit for the smaller ones too once you turn it in .

    another tip . look for the ore depot messages before you start they can get you a nice headstart in the ore you need

    have fun mining

    OK, figured out Rotacol and now finding roids with JGRotPro. Is there a readme/help file for JGRotPro? Seems quite a complex little program to get your head round. Thankfully Sinver set me off in the right direction, but a little guide would be handy.

    This is what I could find right now, the old "myRotacol" site under a new name:
