    Expeditions In Elite Dangerous: A Visual History


    CIRCA December 3300, the very first organized expeditions to local nebulae near Sol opened the door to massive exploration and colonization endeavours. About a year after these debuts and inspired by the pioneering ventures of solitary pilots to the galactic Core and the edges of the Galaxy, a golden age of EXPEDITIONS would arise with the Distant Worlds milestone. From then on, there wouldn’t be a day in the Milky Way without a sightseing tour, a research mission, or a scientific expedition underway somewhere afar.

    Yet, in this three-year span, we merely dotted our immense and wonderful Galaxy...

    Hey folks,
    For the past few weeks, Corbin Moran, Aura Lorell and myself have been working on an exploration tribute poster. After countless hours of scavenging information, designing, and writing, here's the result :)

    We did our best to collect and gather all public multi-Cmdrs expeditions since the dawn of long range exploration, and obtain --sometimes exclusive-- info on upcoming expeditions. From touristic excursions to hardcore scientific endeavours, it's a beautiful and fascinating beam of trails crossing the Galaxy in all directions. A testimony to the explorers' eagerness for discovery and knowledge. See below for full size file (the imgur image is half-scale and compressed).

    • Expeditions are sorted by starting date
    • Some of them, too short or too close to the human bubble, couldn't be displayed on the map (orange numbers)
    • Almost all local bubble waypoints were removed, due to lack of room
    • Galactic Mapping Project POIs used as waypoints are named, except for those which only consist of common nebulae
    • Exceptionally, a few expeditions' paths had to be simplified; again, for lack of room

    Seeing how well this poster is being received, we will start working on a Galactic Mapping Project poster soon, featuring a hundred of the GMP's most reknown and remarkable POIs :) Hope you like it!


    The poster is a standard ISO/DIN A1 format, 594mm x 841mm @300dpi (9,930px x 7,020px). For comparison, the Beagle Landing poster file was half the size and the featured print is A0 (still have it on my wall!). It is imperative, however, that you do not print it using a standard inkjet process, like your regular home printer: the poster is too dark for that. It must be printed on full scale using a poster-apt process (offset or numerical). The best thing to do is to ask your local print service. I ordered a few test prints from different online services, but they haven't arrived yet. I'll update the thread when they do!

    N.B.: most online printing services have a file size limit, that's why I link the .jpg file (27MB). For optimum results, it's best to bring the .png in a usb key to your local print service. It's very unlikely, though, that you would see any difference between .jpg and .png on this picture.

    Movie Mock Up Posters

    I did several Elite/Distant Worlds mock-ups of mostly science-fiction movie posters. I worked on the largest possible files, so most of them are printable in a decent size. I will list them all soon, but for now you can browse them below.
