Thread: The Dead End's Circumnavigation Expedition

  1. #1

    The Dead End's Circumnavigation Expedition


    I've been thinking about doing a circumnavigation trip expedition for some time and the planning is coming along nicely, the route is done (for now), thanks to goemon and Henkka.

    The planned duration is 10-12 months, pace will be a little less than 1KLy/day. Departure will be a few weeks post 2.4 release. Official meetup intervals are planned to be biweekly and about 13KLy apart.

    You're free to fly as you wish; alone, in a wing, just with friends, or any mode you may choose. We would love to see you at the meetups, should you choose not to come, that's fine with us too. The meetups happens in the FleetComm private group.

    All are welcome to join, and some already have. Add a post to this thread, if you wish to join us.

    Thank you, CMDR. I would invite you, had I not known that you already made the trip

    If anyone wishes to join or meet along the route, they're most welcome.

    The pace on this trip is going to be a leisurely one and I have not yet decided if I have started in earnest. Still, I currently find myself 3kly from Sol gathering mats and pointed towards the first waypoint

    Well, as i have mentioned in few other topics before, im planning on this also. Not earlier than 2.4 though and depending on what Fdev promises, i might postpone it even further if anything exciting is coming. But most likely my start date is sometime after 2.4.
    Also, im going out with my Vette, heres my currently planned build, might change yet though. Most likely my jump range will not be that good as most of the values are done with the "best" value, except FSD, i really have 54% FSD.

    I got fed up with Anacondas stupidly op jump range on my trip to BP, not even the Abyss gave me any excitement. Also, its one of my explorer principals, "never go twice with the same ship".
    Im planning on traveling as much on the edges as my range allows me to go. Mat collecting is something i must begin to do soon, i currently have still some mats after BP trip, but with 30ly range, i think i need much more..
    Also, im probably skipping Colonia and all the other outposts, as i want to get the real feel of how does it feel to be in space for a year without seeing any civilization.
    My planned duration for this circumnavigation is no less than 365 days / 12 months, maybe more but no less.

    Macros, if you want ill go with you. And if you want to wait my 30ly Vette every once in a while.
    But as i said, im not leaving the bubble before 2.4 drops.

    Hi CMDR, that sounds very good. I don't mind waiting for your Federal Corvette on route, and I can certainly wait to start until post 2.4 which was my original plan. Leaves me more time for gathering mats.

    A company of 2 it currently is.

    EDEngineer. Never leave the docks without it. Best app ever.

    As you can see, you can make a "shopping list" and you can get a voice telling you when you have collected all the mats on your shopping list.
    It keeps automatically track on what mats and data you have and THAT makes it number one app in my books.

    The route on EDSM goes counterclockwise, but i might as well go clockwise as it makes no difference for me. But what ever Macros wants, goes for me too.

    Clockwise it is then.

    Im thinking we might yet have some more cmdrs with us, although this isnt what you call an "organized event". Atm its just two guys going around the galaxy, so nothing big..

  14. #14
    Indeed, just two guys on a space trip atm; however, anyone who wants to join is most welcome

    Considering the limited jump range of a large percentage of cmdrs currently on the trip, modifications to the route will probably be necessary and warranted.

    I know theres still many months before we are on our way, but couldnt help myself testfitting my Vette. Im quite happy with the range, i still have some modifications to do but those wont affect jump range.
