The '''Marked Mountain Tile''' is a special variant of either a [[Mountain Tile]] or an [[Ice Tile]] which rarely appears during [[Missions]].
The certain mountain or ice tile DOES spawn damaged at the start of the mission, so if you see an already damaged tile when you enter a new match, take a very close look at the tile to see if it is the tile you're looking for. Note that the glow is not always as obvious as the one seen above, however it should always be in the middle of the mountain.

== Description ==
Upon breaking the marked mountain tile, a ''strange object'' will drop from it, move your mech on to the object and it will broadcast a signal. Once you end your turn, the FTL jump drive sound (from subset games's ''FTL: Faster than Light'') will play and a ''strange pod'' will fall from the sky just like a time pod. Pick up the pod or protect it until the end of the match and you will be able to open it like any other time pod, gaining one of the three secret pilots.

This special tile variant spawns already damaged at the start of a mission and has a faint, yellow glow originating from inside it. The tile will appear undamaged during the mission preview and will not actually crack until the mission is begun.
The pod also looks like a broken section of the Federation cruiser from ''Faster than Light''.

The Marked Mountain Tile is a special variant of either a Mountain Tile or an Ice Tile which rarely appears during Missions.

Description[]

This special tile variant spawns already damaged at the start of a mission and has a faint, yellow glow originating from inside it. The tile will appear undamaged during the mission preview and will not actually crack until the mission is begun.

Destroying the tile will reveal a "strange object" hidden inside it; upon being picked up it will broadcast a signal. After the end of that turn, a Strange Pod will fall from the sky, similarly to a Time Pod. Protecting or rescuing the Pod will unlock one of three special Pilots and grant the Distant Friends achievement.

Notes[]

  • Keep in mind that the "strange object" must be picked up by a Mech, simply protecting it until the end of the battle won't summon the Pod.
  • There is a 15% chance that this tile will spawn in place of a regular Time Pod on the second, third, or fourth islands. It will not spawn on the first island, and only one may spawn in a given timeline.
  • Because it replaces a regular Time Pod, it will never spawn during a boss mission. Similarly, if you've already seen an island's allocated number of Time Pods (1 for the second island, 2 for the third and fourth islands), then there's no chance of encountering it in later missions on that island.
  • To maximize your chances of encountering the Marked Tile, take missions with mountains or ice tiles until you've seen the allocated number of Time Pods for an island. If a Time Pod spawns on a mission without these, you essentially forfeit one of your run's 15% rolls.
  • While not collecting the "strange object" does not count as a failed objective for a perfect island, the Time Pod it replaced will not reappear later.

Trivia[]

  • The special pilots are a reference to Subset Games's earlier title, FTL: Faster than Light.
    • The sound that plays during the signal broadcast is the same as the FTL jump drive.
    • The Pod resembles a broken section of the Federation cruiser from Faster than Light.
