Surface Features

Introduced in the Breaking Ground expansion, surface features are similar to terrain scatter.

Description

In the Breaking Ground DLC, several new kinds of surface feature were added. These are to a mush higher resolution than terrain and are also able to be interacted with. Kerbals can pick up samples of the features, and they can be scanned with the 3 different types of scanning arm.

Examples

There are several different types of surface feature, including rocks (found on most planets and moons), and planet-specific features such as the Vall cryovolcanoes or the Wrinkle Ridges on Moho.
