Huge Exploration Coming Up, Advice?
< on 6/3/2017 5:53 AM >
Posted on Forum: UER ForumQuote
Hey guys!

I have my first large explore coming up, before this point I've only ever had your normal sized houses, but this is the big one.

I've been interested in this building for straight years and am beyond excited to say I finally found my entrance, so, do you guys have any advice? Anything you can think of that would be super useful that I may not have thought about? Anything is appreciated!

Picture for Reference, this is only one of several buildings.

Just approach it in the same way you would any other explore, except on a larger scale.

Looks well maintained, so keep an eye out for internal security measures, locking doors, etc.

Bring a roll of 2" wide gaffers tape as a 'just in case.' That way if you come across a door that'll lock if you pass through it, you can put a strip over the mechanism and block it, but it won't leave residue or be permanent. I'd also bring an allen key set in case of the more retail style door locks that you can unlock with a key like that. Just remember to redo the lock after.

Given how the landscape is still groomed, I'd expect to come across a motion sensor or two, but it depends if power is on or not. Definitely near the entrance area though. Doesn't look like anyone has parked there for more than a few minutes in a long while though. No stains on the asphalt.

My personal guess is not active, but remotely secured/alarmed.

Looks like it'll be neat to explore though, albeit potentially boring if cleaned out.

Some good ideas already, I'd just say keep an eye out for any security measures and always have a plan of escape just in case you need to

Probably the best advice you could give anyone, tbh

Plenty of battery power for the camera, maybe a spare card and a big ass smile. Have fun!



I have changed my personal exploring ethics code. From now on it will be: "Take only aimed shots, leave only hobo corpses." Copper scrappers, meth heads and homeless beware. The Jonsered cometh among you, bringing fear and dread.

If it's really big or just labyrinthine in nature, take some chalk (or I suppose that tape someone mentioned might work if it doesn't damage the walls/floors).
I just used this method a couple of days ago to draw arrows for our way out of a very oddly built structure with stairwells that never actually made it all the way from top to bottom - we had to switch stairwells at least twice around the building just to get to the top. You'd be surprised how quickly one can get turned around in some of these places. This applies to underground and above ground!
I've only had to do this a couple of times and I try to avoid it (although it seems the lesser of evils as far as minimizing any damage since it rubs right off), but it can be invaluable even when you might not expect it to be.

I did a mini explore to see what I would actually be facing, and make sure everything I thought in my mind was correct. Hurray, it was, but this seems like a great idea after what I saw. Thanks for the advice!

For sufficiently large structures, a scouting exploration may be in order. Taking pictures discreetly from the outside isn't illegal, and watching for a period of several hours can help you get an idea of the traffic level- passerbyers, workers, guard and police patrols, etc.

Also, stay out of confined spaces if it's an industrial site. When a factory closes, the workers may not fully decontaminate equipment that's not normally accessed, such as machinery and piping in tunnels and the interior of holding tanks. As a result, there's the possibility of chemicals or vapors to last for years, especially in sealed areas.

Also, never trust the floor, and be on the lookout for squatters. Also, do not disturb wildlife you may find. Have a good time!
