    I've been tooling around two areas I *think* are the Salt Flats, without seeing any enemies with EXP parts. Can someone clear up where the Salt Flats are so that I can be sure that I'm in the right area?

    I *think* its the area where the Guardian with the hoverplates are, but I'm not certain about that.

    Hmmm...I'm in an area that looks like that, but no EXP parts. Just lots of little critters and the occasional (non-EXP) Nomad.

    As of the current version, salt flats contain both GSO and EXP enemies. The intention was to make it so that players without R&D will still find GSO enemies in the biome. Unfortunately, because there aren't enough EXP nomads/critters currently in the game, the spawn pool for the salt flats is completely dominated by GSO.

    There are two improvements coming soon that will help to solve this problem.

    -Kris recently streamed the creation of many more EXP enemies. They will all be present in the next update.
    -Kris also mentioned* that salt flats on the R&D client might be changed to prefer spawning EXP over GSO.

    *I can not remember if this was confirmed to be coming in the next update. I'll ask in the next twitch stream.

    They're fascinating, aren't they?

    Yup, I did the work for that on Friday while Kris made all the other EXP vehicles.

    So, basically, just keep killin' the GSO Techs and eventually some EXP Techs will show up?

    seems like we need to purge the world of GSO with fire, and salt the earth...and luckily the 2nd part is already completed

    What coordinates are the salt flats at? Does it change with each world?

    every world is different, just keep going on a straight line and you'll find some eventually :)

    Deutsche Würfel I look good in this dress.

    Salt falts do not appear on any world, untill you are at least 2000-3000 from the start point.
