Thread: Trappist-1 Discovery's Impact on Elite Dangerous

    Back to the op?

    Seems Like Stellar forge is Very near to the "Universe seed". And every surplus data input can increase it's precision, except the personal touch for gameplay purposes. We have a true modell of our universe right there!

    Not 100% but it's checks out.

    Actually I think this is a brilliant idea. They deserve credit rather than whoever can get back the fastest after Beta goes live. I imagine hundreds of players camping out at the nearest star system anxiously waiting for their download to finish.

    As I understand it some of these planets are pretty close together, like earth-moon type close without necessarily being binary paired and there's also evidence of tidal locking. I wonder if the stellar forge can handle that kind of n-body problem?

    Very impressive that the Stella forge is editable in this manner. Easy...?...or with some serious Dev hours applied ?

    1) Beta discoveries dont count
    2) The planets are already discovered, the current discoverers keep the credit for the replacement planets.

    Tongue in cheek /

    1. That would be something for the Explorers done then :-)

    2. I support the Trappist Monk faction controlled outpost. Make them warrior Trappists, anyone who fires a weapon within the system is subjected to 24 hours of irregular, off rhythm chanting. In solo.

    This is why I favour Elite Dangerous over everything else...

    I commend this idea to the upper chaps in charge.

    When I was watching the NASA announcement and they talked about the system being 40ly away, my first thought was "But that's only one jump in my Asp!"

    Great work FD and kudos for acting so quickly to make this addition. Stellar Forge sounds like amazing technology... we need a livestream and hopefully David could come on and speak about it.

    That's seriously fascinating how stellar forge works, great job!

    Nah. They took a different class of star in roughly the same area with roughly the same properties and made some minor tweaks.
