    And if you look at my current path in EDDiscovery, you'll know how true this statement really is. Kind of puts a new meaning to the phrase "Chasing shiny squirrels"...

    Yep ETS2 is great. I have it in conjunction with ProMods, Rusmaps and Project Balkans. It's my go to drinking game on a weekend before going out for the night or if I decide to stay in. Never had a desire to get ATS at all when everything I want is in ETS2 and it has more variations due to all the countries...

    Well here it is since I'm out exploring again up in the north west near the Mare Desperations and it gets boring sometimes, so here it is:

    KNOW YOUR PLANET'S G (Gravity) Nothing is worse then finding a great planet to land on when exploring, material collecting, POI searching or getting to an engineer and forgetting to check the gravity of a planet. 1 G is Earth's gravity, anything less than that won't be much of an issue (anything under 0.1 is wonderful and super relaxing). On the other hand anything above 1 will be a little harder as the gravitational force will be pulling your ship down. 1.8 G+ gets very interesting. Higher G's and you might find yourself getting ready to land and falling at such a high rate you splat upon the planet surface. A good trick is to pull your ship up and power your thrusters so you are slowly accelerating away from the planet. Nothing like going 25,000 LY out of the Bubble and finding a rich Polonium planet, only to add spaceship and pilot guts all over that wonderful mining world...

    Of course and any non NPC pilot would be able to tell the NPC from non-NPC just by communications which would make the NPC's more of a target. You would end up spending more money rebuying your ships over and over than you would with making any bit of profit doing a Fleet. Now if you could loan them out to other players (like say Han Soloing) then you could make money that way as your ship would be like a crew to them. They would pay for the buyback or credit you for you to buy it back. At least then you would have a real player using your ship. Then again, the only people that would want to do that are people that can't afford their own ships and you'd probably end up having novices flying your ships into things the entire time...

    Well considering there's a number of nice Ammonia world's not far from Colonia and one nice locked region in Hyponia region (if you go by those names), it might not be too far in the future that Colonia becomes the new Thargoid ant farm...

    Heat? What heat? It was only 95 here today and I still haven't had the need to turn on the AC yet. Can't wait to get back to Phoenix next weekend where I can actually be in real heat to hike in...

    Hell I keep telling myself that after I see this pocket in the galaxy I'm heading home, then I see cool region, then another thing and so on, that I eventually spend more time out there than I anticipated. Also helps when you have something fun like EDDiscovery as well or finding things for the Galactic Mapping Project as well...

    Once one does enough exploring most planets you can easily tell without looking at the sounds. The Metal-Rich and High-Metal are the ones I still have to listen for as they can be interchangeable with the planet types...

    Great (I do have my name on the water world in the neighboring system at least, not that it matters as you stated). Name: The Allium Nebula Game map search ref: Umbaists XJ-A E6237 Description: This is a small Nebula located in a less congested travel area of the Near 3kpc Arm just outside the main galactic highway from Sol to Beagle Point. The single star nebula is comprised of a 296 million year old neutron star whose children contain 6 ringed gas giants and a single high metal planet. This purple nebula radiates almost to the point of encompasing the neighboring F-Class Star in UMBAISTS WE-Z D1365 and it's terrestrial water world where you can see excellent views of the Allium Nebula from the planatary surfaces of the moons in this system. Screenshot reference:

    So question. If you get to a POI (Say a Nebula) whose main center star say has previously been discovered, but other planets in the system or other stars have not shown as a "First Discovery" can you still submit a name for that Nebula? Or are you required to have your actual name on the System as the "First Discovery" in EDSM first to make it count? I know many nebulas say here have had "First Discoveries", but aren't on EDSM yet. So not sure on the rules with this (didn't see them listed in the first post)...
