...Huh. I was hoping to apply with a shield volcano, at 16 km over sea level. But obviously that immediately loses.


It doesn't matter. We still love to see new mountains. Post if you want.

Eh. This isn't that mountain, it's one I just found. Not even near beating the original post, but whatever.

This mountain is 21 km up, and that's from going to its top. Only reason I saw it was because I thought it was a shield volcano.

Not actually applying this.





Tips for finding Earth-Like planets: Look for F, G, or K Class stars. M class habitables will almost always be tidelocked. Oceanias can, of course, also be habitable, they just have tiny amounts of land.

I always liked to imagine that the islands on oceanias were salt/mineral deposits, but I never flew down to visit one. I now realize that it is unlikely (maybe even impossible) for salt to form 70 km spikes.

Either the universe is barely working, or ALIENS VISITED THIS PLACE THERE IS NO ALTERNATIVE.

Dammit, Quontex, the answer is always aliens. Regardless of the question.

For example: Which mountain in this thread is the tallest? ALIENS.

Your mountain is a giant alien turtle with just it's shell sticking out of the ground. But really it is nice, and I wonder what it looks like with Level of Detail turned up to 2.

I just found this mountain...

74.5km above sea level... That's by far the highest mountain I have ever seen.

How does a structure like that resist erosion? It wouldn't seem like such a mountain would last long.

I'd imagine gravity would be a bigger problem than erosion. Even on Mars mountains over ~25 km seem to be impossible.
