Osseus Pumice

Osseus Pumice

The Osseus species grows a single thick stalk from which emerges a wide, broadly circular, pitted endoskeleton. This structure is designed to dramatically increase the surface area of the organism, facilitating chemical capture and chemosynthesis on its catalytically active surface.

— In-Game Description

Osseus is a genus of alien organism found on planets and moons with thin atmospheres across the galaxy. They can be sampled with the Genetic Sampler and scanned with the Short Range Composition Scanner. They have a clonal colony range of 800m.

Description[]

Ossei are named after their bony skeleton. They are easy to confuse with round rocks and typically look like giant mushrooms from afar. Recognizable with Night Vision from 300m.[1]

Types[]

There are six known morpho-types of Osseus:

  • Osseus Cornibus
  • Osseus Discus
  • Osseus Fractus
  • Osseus Pellebantus
  • Osseus Pumice
  • Osseus Spiralis

Distance[]

Minimum distance between two genetic samples: 800 m

Conditions of occurrence[]

  • Planets with thin atmosphere
  • Only on Rocky, High Metal Content or Rocky Ice (for Osseus pumice) planets
  • Only present on rocky areas on planets
  • Maximum gravity: 0.27

Osseus cornibus[]

Osseus Cornibus Turquoise

Osseus Cornibus Turquoise

Description[]

An osseus species that produces a stacked series of spiral structures up to about three metres. These ridged features are upturned to better absorb sunlight for photosynthesis.

Conditions of occurrence[]

  • Planets with thin Carbon dioxide atmosphere
  • Only on Rocky or High Metal Content planets
  • Only present on rocky areas on planets
  • Maximum gravity: 0.27
  • Mean temperature between 180 K and 195 K

Osseus discus[]

OsseusDiscus

Osseus Discus - blue

Description[]

An osseus that appears as half-buried discs with radial patterns, which may resemble natural rook formations from a distance. They absorb geothermal energy from below the surface as well as available heat sources above ground.

Conditions of occurrence[]

  • Planets with thin Water atmosphere
  • Only on Rocky or High Metal Content planets
  • Only present on rocky areas on planets
  • Maximum gravity: 0.27

Colored variants[]

Colored variant determined by rare material found on planet:

Osseus fractus[]

Osseus fractus Turquoise

CMDR Warmind, Osseus fractus, Plio Euq WL-C D13-0, 6 F

Description[]

This osseus species can grow to over six metres across. They produce wide ridged frills for metabolic interactions including aosorbing sunlight for energy production.

Conditions of occurrence[]

  • Planets with thin Carbon dioxide atmosphere
  • Only on Rocky or High Metal Content planets
  • Only present on rocky areas on planets
  • Maximum gravity: 0.27
  • Mean temperature between 180 K and 195 K
