Hey, I know these guys! And I love them!
I found them on a beautiful planet I named Aqua Rosae Mortis, a bright pink world with small poodles of water everywhere, as if the seas had dried. But the most amazing thing was that the entire planet was covered by a huge, huge subterranean network. Basically, you could find a tunnel by shooting grenades at any one point on the surface. Sometimes, it was filled with water, rivers or even lakes. And at very specific points, vortex cubes. And what else, on these spots? Bam! These little bouncers, dancing around the cubes. I dubbed them “les disciples du cube”, the worshippers of the cube. I wonder what in the generation process link them with the cubes, but the relation was as clear as day.
EDIT : The poodles :

Yesterday was a great day for space exploration. I first stumbled onto a completly barren moon with these strange worm-like geological structures :
Then, the planet around which said-moon was revolving: a lush, red world, with my very first sauropod on it:
(I’ve seen lot of dinosaur types already, but never this one until yesterday. By the way, I have the impression that the height listed in the descriptions of animals not quite reflects reality. This one was really, really huge, and listed at 5,4 m, about the same as a bunch of others I found on other worlds.)
Before that, I saw a genuine geological accident on a world that was very tame everywhere else :
The low-flight mod allowed me to follow it for a cool star-wars-y feeling.
All in all, the most surpising thing for me is that the game keeps surprising me. Just when I think I’ve seen it all it has to offer, it gives something fresh and new. From now on, I am a disciple du ver géant. Shai-Hulud is out there, somewhere.
