Thread: Sector Mapping - Dumbbell Project

  1. #16
    I'm now on my way to the Dumbbell Sector in my Cobra mkIII, too.

    I just had a little exploration trip on my own, discovering my first Earth like World and was about to head back to the Bubble.
    But I think it is a little too soon to return, so I'll stay in the Void for a little longer.

    The 9th Earth-like world was discovered last night!

    Excellent progress is being made by everyone involved.

    Update: 10th elw found!

    Random fiery ball of doom from Dumbbell Sector JM-W D1-26. The system also contains a hmc cft.

    There was also a Dumbbell Sector ELW reported by CMDR Odegard in the list of Earth-like planets a good while ago, so that brings the current total to 11. I went there, verified that the system is all mapped, and updated the sheet accordingly.

    OP,

    Will certainly re-visit this thread once I've returned from the DW Expedition.

    Good Luck & Fly Safe all involved.

    We've begun creating an album of system images for each system on the 2nd spreadsheet. It's a work in progress at the moment so very little to see. The link is below.

    I added a few more system maps to the album today and here's a pic from the last system I visited tonight viewed from the cockpit of my asp explorer in Dumbbell Sector CQ-Y C6

    Just a short heads-up: I asked drkaii to include this thread in the Community Cartographics sticky on the exploration subforum, and he added it to the list.

    If anyone finds any errors or ommissions from the sheets feel free to correct them. We've already found a few mistakes and missing systems. It's easy to make a few mistakes when you're manually listing several thousand systems from the galaxy map. That's another reason for support from the community, to spot the errors and correct them. It's likely that the results won't be perfect but they'll be close!

    There has also been a bit of confusion regarding ammonia worlds. We're tracking the number of ammonia worlds as seen in Agony's Visual Guide to ELWs, WWs, and AWs. These are the highly valuable ones. The thargoid equivalent to an earth-like world. Maybe the locations will be useful in the future or maybe not. Either way you'll receive alot of credits for scanning them unlike the gas giants with ammonia based life.

    The progress to date has been very impressive by everyone involved!

    Cool, thanks

    Hi CMDR Clash reporting
    Actually on a trip to a nebula but when i come back i'll be part of this for sure. Good idea for explorers those exploration group goals GJ !

    Amount of objects of interest has been on a steady increase with a total of 525 by now. Earth likes have increased to 12 and there's no end to other places humanity can create homes out of, with 63 terraformable water worlds, 327 terraformal high metal content planets and 7 terraformable rocky planets found so far.

    However, it is not without envious eyes probably watching, since a total of 22 ammonia worlds have also been discovered.

    And the sector still has so much more room for people to claim a piece of glory and marvel, so jump along.
    "Freedom, morality, and the human dignity of the individual consists precisely in this; that he does good not because he is forced to do so, but because he freely conceives it, wants it, and loves it."






    -How many icy planets did you scan?
    -How many breads have you eaten in your life?

    This is very cool, I am sort of doing the same thing 18 kylies out from Sol, but its near impossible to do by myself. I wish I saw this post before I left a month ago... if I come back to the bubble, I'd like to come join you guys!

    Cool, the Dumbbell Sector isn't going anywhere and there are thousands of systems to scan

    I've been back in the bubble for a little while, the space madness is gone (or is it???) but I'm getting the itch again. Just parked my Python at Jameson station, dusted off the Hans ASPerger and am heading to the Dumbbell sector. Quick question - I know theres a ton of systems listed in the spreadsheet to work on so I'm not so worried about having nothing to do, but are those the only systems in the sector that the project is interested in? Or can I add more as I find them?

    The "Dumbbell Sector Systems List" sheet hopefully has all of the systems in the sector listed but it's quite likely that we've missed some or alot. We've already added several missing systems (multiple times). Manually adding all of them was quite a challenge. If you find systems like HD 190150 or non-dumbbell systems in the region you can add them too, those are easy to miss.

    The "Dumbbell Sector Planets of Interest" sheet simply lists all of the systems with high value planets, possibly for future terraforming and colonisation.

    Ok cool. I was kind of surprised some systems seem to be "missing" from the galactic map, like you'll have DUMBBELL SECTOR KR-W C1-0, KR-W C1-1, KR-W C1-2, KR-W C1-3, but no KR-W C1-4 or C1-5 or C1-8, but the rest of the numbers up to C1-23. I thought you guys just weren't putting them onto the sheet until you saw them in your nav window or something. In the COESTS sector about 17,000 LY from earth I didn't find any missing numbers in their numbering system, except for the "H" systems, like COESTS AA-A H would start at 38 or so and go to 63. But I noticed that nearer and inside the bubble you'll get something like Col 285 Sector PD-S d4-88 but there isn't any d4-0 or d4-1 etc. I don't know if named systems like the HIP or HD etc are replacing those, or if the stellar forge isn't in full effect this close to colonized space.

    I am finding some systems that were fully explored by someone who isn't listed on the Dumbbell Sector project and isn't reflected in the spreadsheet, so I've been marking those green because all the bodies have someone's name on them already. Those are kind of nice to find, less icy and rocky worlds for me to scan
