    In the explorer's forum that's not so much the stupid thing as the obviously correct thing most of the time, unless you're in a huge rush.

    Enjoy your journey CMDR! Perhaps we'll meet your out there.

    I'd be much further but I decided to take a peek at the furthest point above Sag A* and I took my time.

    Edit: I'm actually past 28k ly.

    I live for those discoveries - I'd fly twice as far as Hutton for that!

    Thanks a lot, untill it's fun for you it's a great service for the expedition!

    Take all the time in the world, exploration is made for these discoveries, otherwise it makes little sense. And Above all have great time. Updating your incoming.

    Hello fellow explorers !

    CMDR Leo Sagan happy to report the Jules Verne Anaconda explorer crossed the 65Kly barrier a few systems ago.

    We'll explore the nearby systems and try to push as far as we can.

    Fly safe.

    Apologies - put it down to sleep deprivation! The list looks fine.

    Soon i will draw a line in the list that will say: Jump-boost era begins.

I remeber 50 ly gaps between clusters that required hours to turn aroud and now can be boosted in a single leap. So indeed the difference is huge, and must be taken into account, valorizing the ones that made it in pre-boost era.
    For the players that departed before jump-boost technology, for some time, i will add the line (Expedition departed before jump-boost tech implementation), but eventually I will give up becouse it will be really difficult to make differences.
    The list will go on in chronolical order and a separate list won't be made.

    Godspeed CMDRs!!!!
    Here's the new Northern Meridian.

    It lays just 32 LYs off the 0 line and is only 14 LYs below Sol's plane. At 65,424 LYs from Sol its about as far as I could get for the northern meridian star. I think the next one out is 93 LYs away, even a J3 jump won't reach that far.

    This is obviously a post-Jumponium entry, and was achieved by CMDR Erimus (not Kamzel this time, he's still in retirement until Distant Worlds ).




    There are probably hundreds of systems further out all along the outer rim so if this is a distance record it'll only be temporary. I didn't tag all the worlds in the systems I passed through as to give other explorers who make it out this far a chance to get their own names out here too (a bit of Rendezvous Point explorers etiquette doesn't harm).

    Damn you, not even got back to the core following my first trip to the 65k line and you've me a new target to aim for once I get my Exploraconda - a new cardinal point!!!

    Grats, looks like you were travelling as fast as me! I didn't have any chance to explore yesterday so you have the distinction of being the first CMDR to venture beyond the pre-jumponium limit of the galaxy.

    I passed through Beagle Point yesterday after reaching the meridian. I'm heading 'southwest' towards Svenno's Crossing and will see if there is a more westerly route back into the Scutum-Centaurus Arm. I think I have enough Jumponium to make it across if I find a path (famous last words ).

    Good luck out on the rim, and save some worlds for the DW fleet!

    Damn, then I'll speed up.
    It definitely makes sense, but I departed around June and to be honest I wouldn't like to be lumped together with the post Jumponium travellers.
    Not that it would be much less of an achievement, but still.

    I'll keep exploring and working on a max distance once I have taken a bit of a break

    Whoops and apologies - missed Cmdr Leo Sagan....

    We need a group patch an image of the Galaxy with a 50 over it maybe.
