Yup, I'm an XRI Pioneer, thanks to a birthday gift from some good friends of mine! ;D

I haven't found them terribly widely spread, mostly just around the

. I'll keep looking.

Tangentially related ... I suspect (though can't be sure without accidentally getting spoilered) that I'm near the end of the plot ... I have gathered from the forums here that I will still be able to drive around and take photos (and presumably, tag them?) after the plotline ends. But will I still be able to get and complete missions from van Susteren? Or will it just be "free-roaming" do-what-I-want driving around and picture-taking?

No - the shard very early in the game that's buried upright in the ground w/ letters scratched into it.  To the w/sw there's a little unnatural looking mound that to me made it look symbolic / like a tombstone to me.  I thought it might've been a message/sign also.

Starspores are quite widely spread, just keep looking around.  Have you upgraded so as to be able to use unlimited panoramic photos?

I found out about it by having only two things worth tagging in a picture and wondering what would happen if I tagged the same object twice. I don't know how long it will stay in the game, as I would consider it an exploit/bug/glitch, nor is it very realistic, as I doubt real rover drivers get rewarded for tagging the exact same thing in the same picture twice. I would find it funny that, if they fix it and you to try to tag a object twice, you would get a disappointed mail from Turing about how he understands your need for fame as the most tagging driver out there, double-tagging isn't in the spirit of scientific investigation.

Oh huh, that's a cool trick. I didn't know you could do that! If / when I finally find one, I'll definitely have to double-tag it.

Also, when you finally find one, just place two tagging windows over it, it will get registered twice, and you won't have to worry about finding another one.

Huh, interesting. Thanks to both of you for your responses! I guess I'll just keep looking, then, haha. Maybe I'll go back to the ones I found near an obelisk and just hang out for a while or something.

Hi kage23,

Yeah, I had the same frustration with the Starspores. They are open or closed "on a whim" it seems (it has nothing to do with day/night cycles).

I have noticed that those I'd tagged before I got the request for the photos didn't count toward the goal of 2 samples of each state. But I also noticed that after getting the task and tagging far more than 2 of each, it wasn't registering. Dunno if the XRI database was just slow, or if there's a glitch in this somewhere. Eventually, I suddenly got credit for having completed this task, but I'm not sure what prompted this change.
