I changed the description for the abandoned mountain city and added the robots, the wall breach and the octopus thingy :)

Regarding the octopus thingy, is it inside the Pujan Settlement? I flew over there yesterday but didn't see anything (I wasn't looking for it though so I could have missed it)

I also went into that area looking for the octopus juggarnaut thing and never could find it.  Maybe it's a boss that moves around?

Looks like there will be new locations to add in the next build. Are there any new locations since last map update that haven't been put in?

First, I want to point out that theshadow99 found a new coal deposit at 9160, 6777. If anyone can add this to the map, that would be great.

It looks like jokedst hasn't been on since Feb. 1st. But the map does, indeed, need updating. Even playing a0.95, there are noticeable differences between the in-game map and the online map.

The map even seems wrong as the petroleum deposit it shows in what looks like the lake region of the forest is a coal deposit under water...

The map used for pemap.apphb.com looks like it was ripped straight out of the game. However, if you look closely you will find minor discrepancies. Unlike the in-game map for a0.95, it does not show the lake. I believe that the online map was created from the in-game map from several versions ago. At one point, Pathea updated the map.

The online map shows Petroleum at 8763, 6582, right above a Silver deposit. There -is- a lake near that, but the coordinates for that Petroleum is a bit to the West. Your lake is right next to that Gold depost at 9229, 6762. And while the Online Map does not show your coal deposit underneath (at 9160, 6777), it is there. I checked, myself.

Meaning: You found a new coal deposit not on the Online PE Map. With all that ore scanning you did, you may have found more than one new deposit. Perhaps you could check against jokedst's map and post your Coal location and any others to his Yet another interactive map thread? Players like myself would appreciate that.

Cool! Diamond deposits can now be found! :o I suppose this might not be news to those who have been playing the beta, but it is news to me.

Here's a Diamond deposit I found, right on the surface, in Story Mode: 11189, 6229
[The fact that it's on the surface is nice, considering that I don't have a scanner upgrade to detect diamond.]

Also, I wanted to bump this thread so that new players know about the interactive Story Mode map with so many mineral deposits marked.

I contacted jokedst less than a week ago about the new deposits and he promptly replied and updated the map. (Thank you jokedst!) He said to send him a PM with the such deposits to get his attention.

And, again, I think it helps to bump this thread now and again so new players know about this handy map.

Edit 0:
There is a sizeable Silver/Gold/Iron/Aluminum (combo) deposit I found, very near the surface, in Story Mode: 8598,8472

It is practically underneath the Martian Camp. And I think this deposit is particularly noteworthy as I am not aware of any other with FOUR ores more-or-less mixed in a single large deposit.

This is basically a one-stop source for most late-game metals, making it rather handy. The value of Iron should not be underestimated. Aside from the usefulness of Steel: By the time the player is finished with Martian Camp, Alfonzo Hooke arrives, which presents the opportunity to purchase the Diamond Script. That allows making Diamond from Iron and Graphite. Silver, too, is useful for late-game as it is essential for Batteries. Those are essential for Hydrogen, which is needed for Fuel Cells. And those are essential for vehicles. Large vehicles often require several huge (Type 04) fuel cells, which require lots of Hydrogen, particularly those with weapons as using them drains fuel rapidly.

Edit 1:
I've also discovered a new Copper/Iron (combo) deposit, deep underground, at: 9684, 8236
It may be deep. However, it is pretty close to an extensive cavern system, which should make for easier access.

Edit 2:
Amazing! I discovered a deposit of LITHIUM! :o AFAIK, this is a brand new mineral. I'm not sure what it's good for or even if it has a use, yet. Anyway, it's located on the surface inside a cavern around 8255, 7688. (It's a huge cavern complex next to - but not connected to - Andhera Cave.) Look for an odd-looking, greyish deposit. It also happens to be near the gold and silver deposits.

Edit 3:
I found a new deposit of Zinc at: 9128,7825
It is right on the surface, making it easy to mine.

Nearby, I also found a new Gold deposit at: 9241,7973
And I found a new Iron deposit at: 8958,7774

Edit 4:
I found a Gold/Silver (combo) deposit at: 7572,6850
This is up on a high cliff, near the North edge of the Layerback Nest - perhaps too uncomfortably close. (Your NPCs might engage the Layerbacks below if they are set to aggressive.)

I also found an Iron/Coal (combo) deposit at: 7031,7078
This is mostly Iron as there is but a small amount of Coal.

Edit 5:
I found a new, large surface deposit of Aluminum at: 7456,7723
It's near Earth Camp. And, yes, I'm sure this is different from the surface deposit of Aluminum already on the map Northwest of Earth Camp. This one is closer and bigger.

Edit 6:
I found a Gold/Aluminum (combo) deposit at: 6708, 9212
This is under Lake Dayu, near-ish the huge Petroleum deposit already on the map. However, this deposit is very, very deep. (So deep, in fact, that it might not appear in scans unless you dive into the underwater cave and scan from there.) It's probably not worth the effort, considering other deposits with much easier access. Though, if you already plan to mine the Petroleum there, via digging from the surface, it might be worth extending such a mine a bit deeper for the Gold and Aluminum. (Mining underwater is never worth the effort. And mining through an above-ground shaft is risky as one could dig into the water if one is not careful.)

Here are some more ore deposits I've found since then:

Diamond : 2077, 9193
(This is a surface deposit immediately south of where the 'Emanation Tower C' used to stand, before you destroy it as part of the Help Peter quest.)

Silver : 9437, 11072
(Not a surface deposit, but extremely close to the surface.)

Gold : 6506, 12123
Iron : 6456, 12094

Coal : 6873, 11717

Coal : 7941, 12384

Iron : 2070, 11190

Zinc : 2132, 11054

Lithium : 2056, 10783
(Surface deposit, of course.)

Edit 1:

Iron : 3344, 11269

Petroleum : 4822, 11570
(Large deposit just off the shore of the lake, but below the lake bed.)

Petroleum : 3377, 13551

Silver : 2600, 11670

Silver : 3830, 11800

Edit 3:

Coal / Zinc (combo) : 3383, 12828
(Large deposits on the surface, making this easy to mine.)

Gold : 3978, 13815
(It's kind of deep, but it is below the floor of a cave, so one could dig from inside.)

Coal : 3938, 13983
(Very close to the surface.)

Petroleum : 4085, 14104
(Starts on the surface and extends below the small lake.)

Edit 4:

Silver : 8464, 6788
(It is below the floor of a cave which is south of the Large Doline.)

Iron : 8541, 6834

Coal : 8600, 6168

Petroleum : 8549, 6114
(Runs into the Coal above. Unlike most Petroleum, this is not underwater.)

Gold : 11680,  3930
(Huge deposit, accessible from the mountain surface or the cave underneath.)

Silver / Gold (combo) : 11750, 3870
(Huge deposit, accessible from the mountain surface or the cave underneath.)
