    For those who are wondering:
    This is the new Pillars Biome!
    The Pillas.png

    For some reason it reminds me of Legion. (The spiral resources and the strange hex towers give that vibe)
    The Salami trees are there (acting as usual), along with new "Crystal Spires" that are currently unmineable.
    The Hex pillars aren't mineable as well.
    There seems to be lasers shooting into the sky from the ground.
    The seed is "Pillars of Destruction"
    Save for exploring it below: Took a while to find. Happy exploring!

    Does Legion fit here?

    Nah. They need darker terrain. Some blasted hellscape, possibly with other dimly glowing crystals.

    I agree, a darker ground color with some sort of cracked texture with a faint purple glow would be completely awesome, and look amazing for Hawkeye promo shots. :)

    @Pink Kitty, those pictures look sick! I hope something like those would be added to the game, but not to replace the Pillars though.

    I think the Pillars would look a lot better if it had a different color ground like dark and black (what everyone said) and have the Pillars have lots more spikes and instead of pointing straight up, have it point at a sort of an angle.

    I need to find that place in my current game as that looks awesome for a base location. Are the laser like things animated and cause damage?

    Make sure that the save was created in TT_Unstable [] (or the Pillars Biome may be impossible to find)
    The Laser-like things seem to cause no damage (I think).

    Here is a prototype sample Hawkeye Base for those who are curious:

    Note: The picture only has the tank in it, use the save to see the base!
    Several parts of this were inspired by the community.

    I just found it. the particle effects don't cause damage (but look really good at night XD )

    like it. but I agree the ground needs a new color. so far all the biomes are good, but are too "earth compatible"

    this new one, it gives a vibe of "alien planet" and "we are not alone" lol

    edit: I forgot. the pillars and the bright cones (or something) do stop munition shots, so yeah. a good place for a base XD (well that's if they stop the shots from npc techs)

    not sure if you had the issue of using a temple as cover just to be blown out by another tech shooting thru them

    Who says they're intended to look alien and scary?

    Those are just basalt crystals. We have them here on earth:

    The only difference is: we don't happen to have any in deserts, that i know of.

    I don't know for sure, but i think this is probably the first of the 'slightly alien' biomes.

    Later we get the 'really alien' ones.

    I must have jumped to conclusions when looking at it for the first time after a lengthy flight. It seemed out of place in comparison to the biomes that I have been familiar with for a while, with the suddenly striking "really alien" feeling.

    certainly we do. yet those are a really rare. and having those in such a scale + the "plasma bug" (reference to starship troopers) flowers in there.

    it does feel alien XD (also I get the drums in that part. not sure if everyone does)

    now... if only we could get a little Van Gogh and get the ground blue and the sky green...

    A big question: Where do those lasers come from?

    Hexagonal black pillars everywhere? Sand?

    Someone's been playing Mass Effect Andromeda :p

    Those could be called "Laser Shooting Shrubs".

    go easy on the spoilers ;) (waiting for the bugs to get patched before playing T_T )

    it would be really funny if those shots did damage.
    it would be the first environmental hazard on the game:D

    (also an obvious no fly zone lol)

    Getting killed by a shrub is one of the last things you want to happen while playing TerraTech.:p
