    Wuuuu Erimus, a lot of interesting locations you are posting!!!! I will check some out in game, now i have something too, a little bit grim...
    TORMENT: Intermediate 4TH Quadrant:
    This region is the gap between the Norma and the Saggitarius arms, south the Dryo Gap. Exiting from the core area, the relative low density of stars makes routes convoluted, and the crazy core systems give place to an endless serie of M class with few ice balls. Traversing this area from the core, or from anywhere else, tests the endurance of the pilots that want to go further.
    POI: EEAMBAIST Torment (EEAMABAIST AA-A H0, 33834,45 Ly from Sol): This lone Wolf Reyet, undergoning the torment of consuming the last stages of its life, it's a testimony of the CMDRs struggles to traverse this area.

    The waypoint beacons I added are nothing special to be honest, just bright stars in respect to their sectors. The reason I added them was to aid players in figuring out distances when looking at the maps, and to give me a reference point to work from when trying to pinpoint new entries


    Will add The Eeambaist Torment to the next round of updates

    Hmmm, just found a weird world out on my travels. A dwarf giant (if such a thing exists lol), that is pock marked with light-emitting storms.





    Maybe one that warrants further scientific study once we can fly through atmospheres?

    Wow, gas giant with water based life? Not seen that before!

    I thought they were common?

    Its the storms on this particular world that intrigued me, the screenshot doesn't do them justice, but the yellowish storm systems are very bright, as if that part of the atmosphere is burning. Would love to fly down there one day and take a proper look

    I'm navigating the Scutum-Centaurus Arm north in the Intermediate 4th Quadrant, and finding few interesting things. Navigating here is a torment, so I'm going on with the Torment series of POIs, the few interesting things I've spotted in 10kly, and man, they are weird, especially becouse they are in the middle of nothingness.

    ASSAIRSHCH Torment:
    ASSAIRSHCH EG-Y G4, 39382.87 Ly from Sol, Intermediate 4th Quadrant.
    This is a main BH system, and very far from the Neutron Fields, almost on the ecliptical!!! That's very uncommon. The system also sports an Ae/Be and a B class main sequence, so it has Childhood, Adulthood and Death all in a system!!!

    WEQEA Torment: WEQEA AA-A G0, 40245,7 Ly from Sol, Intermediate 4th Quadrant
    This is a super complex system with dozen of bodies. The Main star is a super fast spinning Ae/Be, red coloured!!! I never saw a red star spin that fast. Unfortunately I'm not good at video recording, so i took 3 screenies from the same position that gives an idea. If you want to see it spin, visit this system!!!!

    BYEETHE Torment: BYEETHE AA-A F2, 41165,69 Ly from Sol. Intermediate 4th Quadrant.
    Gal Map and visual contact confirm this main star is a White-Blue Supergiant, but Sys Map description gives a wrong statement of radius and class (describing as a regular B type). This is not the most astonishing feature of this system though. Thre's a TT with 1,9 Solar Radii. Yes, a TT twice as big than the Sun, very similar to an A class in colour and radius. Never seen anything like this, what a monster!!!! It's the 3rd picture of the ones submitted.

    Now I'm leaving the Intermediate 4th Quadrant, crawling my way to Silentium

    P.S.: I have reached the 5000 systems visited, and crossed the 40000ly from sol line, in the same jump!!!! The winner system was an anticlimatic M class with few rock balls, but i toasted to myself with martian tea (hot water), alone in my ship.

    Gas giant with water based are pretty common, i hear a lot of them, but quitted scanning them after the first 100. Small ones (12000km or less) can be Water Giants. If they make high pitch bubbling noise, and their holo-icon is of a ELW/WW type, they are water giants. If their sound is high pitch bubbling, but they have a Gas Giant Holo-Icon, they they are water life gas giants no matter their size.

    Just posting up another object for consideration for inclusion in the catalogue.

    I think its located in the Upper 1st quadrant? (not 100% sure now the individual map areas are gone, sorry)

    Name : The Osprey Stellar Remnant
    Game map search ref. : EOS BRAI KR-W E1-4
    Description : This system is in the very center of a small nebula or stellar plume, formed from the stellar ejecta blasted out by a dying star which collapsed upon itself to form the neutron star at this remnants core. The name is derived from the systems galactic catalogue name, Eos brai (ee - os, bray) , and I've submitted it as an object of note as it's the first nebula yet found along the length of the New Outer Arm when followed from its tip in the Formidine Rift.

    Now on Upper 4th Quadrant, devoid of POIs. I found something interesting, but i will give up with the Torment series since I'm actually having fun up here.

    MONOLITH OF THE SEVEN: I was moving in a random 1000 ly route on the ecliptical, crossing the Scutum Centurus arm, and bang, a NS. How rare can it be!!! Looking batter i saw a mini cluster of seven NS, separate by 50ly approx. They raise from the ecliptical for a 150ly span, and since I was zapping flat north it looked like a monolith. They have interesting planets orbiting them too, especially an Ammonia and a Terraformable (by Thargoids given the atmosphere it has).

    Thanks to CMDR Edelgard Von Rhein that noticed JOORAI NI-K D8-9, Planet 3, is an UC Record. The Ammonia World with longest Orbital Period, almost double the previous record. 22k Days to make one orbit around the NS.

    JOORAI NI-K D8-8 A (NS) 42871.23 From Sol
    JOORAI NI-K D8-115 A (NS) 42871.75
    JOORAI NI-K D8-163 A (NS) 42916.93
    JOORAI NI-K D8-9 A (NS) 42861.08
    JOORAI LX-L D7-164 A (NS) 42830.18
    JOORAI LX-L D7-254 A (NS) 42829.56
    JOORAI LX-L D7-223 A (NS) 42813.22

    The way to Silentium is longer than i tought, maybe i'll find something interesting for the Upper 4th Quadrant reaching it.

    Cmdr Akira Masakari, the Ammonia World you have there with the 22k day orbit, Joorai NI-K d8-9 3, is worth submitting to the UC record breaker thread - the current record listed for the longest period for an Ammonia World on the website is about 14k days. Some interesting finds all round!

    Sup, I checked the Radius of the TT, but there's a sligtly bigger already submitted. I will check the orbital period immediatly, thanks a lot.

    Indeed I have subm,itted that planet, you figure in the description, I wouldn't have noticed that, thanks again.

    Vela Ultima Complex

    Hi folks,
    I'd like to propose the following:

    The Vela Ultima Complex
    Game map search ref. : HYUEDAU LR-N D6-22
    POI Type: Exploratory & Scientific

    Vela Ultima Complex is a vast area of star formation sitting in the Vela Constellation deep in the Perseus Arm. It's clearly distinguishable on the Galaxy Map by its red coloration, being the result of illuminated Hydrogen gas. The area is rich in young and moderately old stars, which seem to be especially abundant with Gas Giants of all kinds.

    Within the Vela Ultima Complex you can find

    The Hyon Cluster
    Game map search ref. : HYUEDAU UY-S E3-5
    POI Type: Exploratory & Scientific

    The Hyon Cluster seems to be the core of a group of B-type stars that have just entered the Main Sequence (hence VZ, V being Main Sequence and Z standing for Zero). Overall stellar age seems to be between 50 and 75 million years. Quite a few of these young, hot stars have their own orbiting T Tauri stars and also quite a few 'Hot Jupiter' Gas Giants.

    Please see attached screenshots for review:





    Thanks in advance, and as always fly safe!


    In this universe there are only three conditions for you: You are either part of the solution, part of the problem or part of the landscape.
    This system is accompanied by only two choices: You accept it or you change it.

    I know I'm overposting here, but the 4th quadrant has few entries and I'm going on finding stuff there (well, i went there only to find pois for this thread).
    So i go on posting, and of course Erimus can refuse any entry at any time. Also i don't want to impose my naming in entire maps, so if Erimus finds some of my findings interesting but doesn't like the grim names, I'm open to collective naming, also becouse I'm running out of imagination.

    SCUTUM OUTER BEACON: PREOU FREE AA-A H0, 45650.66 Ly from Sol, Upper 4th Quadrant.
    This system has a huge, cold and red Wolf Rayet, a red Ae/Be and a quite big, hot and young O main sequence. A Venus-like planet is squized in the orbit of these stars. Aside of the oddity of this system, it's a good beacon to the outer part of the Scutum Centaurus arm, for everybody that want to cross toward the Carina Sagittarius one in a zone where it's easy for any jumprange.

    Beacon systems are always welcome, even though they aren't the best visual POIs, they offer a traveler a good nav and distance marker when using the maps I think. Although I think its better if they're at least 10K LYs apart and I wouldn't want to clutter a particular map up with a load of them (maybe a maximum of 4 per map and at least 10 K apart ?)
