    Route 33: a mapped route through the Abyss plus a new POI "The distant view in blue

    The result


    After the release of new technologies that allowed us to boost our FSD and to land on airless planets, I started on 18 DEC 3301 with my 2nd CMDR to the far rim of the galaxy. A few weeks later, leaving the far rim, I found a time-saving route through the Abyss for ships with ~33 LY range and a new POI.

    Route 33
    On 8 FEB 3302, after a few weeks exploring the far rim, I decided to go back home and to try to find a crossing through the Abyss for ships with a lower jump-range than stripped Asp Explorers or Anacondas.

    In this case, my ship the Asp Explorer Loraha has a jump-range of 33.41 / 36.06

    In my opinion perfect for exploring with all comforts: Equipped with AFMU, shields, 2 SRVs, boostable and trusted for High-G-Planet-landings. For a 6A Fuel Scoop I did not have enough money in this case ;)

    Moreover, it fulfilled one more job: to find a shortcut through the Abyss without using Jumponium or jumping on fumes

    Started at SYRIAE THAA PJ-I D9-1 at -2,543 / 13 / 63,807 I finally reached on 12 FEB 3302 a point where I was able to safely continue my way back home without manual plotting: CHO THUA SF-W B29-0 at -302 / 36 / 58,462

    Overall it is a distance of 5,796.91 LYs between the 2 systems and a total distance to travel of ~9,056 LYs.

    The first 43 (~1,218 LYs) and the last 44 (~1,165 LYs) jumps are within the full plotting range of 1,000 LYs. The rest of the route is all manual plotting, except 2 parts just before the end in the south, where the route planner allowed me to make once 23 and once 24 jumps, between 2 areas where I had to plot manually.

    POI "The distant view in blue"
    Pyrie Eurk QX-U e2-0

    On 09 FEB 3302 I aligned my ship to the next system and was a little bit confused as I saw this:



    Wait a moment, what's that? A few seconds ago I had a look to the system-map and there was no blue Gas-Giant to see. Opened the Galaxy-Map, searched a little bit and hooray: A Black Hole, a Planetary Nebula, here, that far out.

    Lucky find. Nearly that amazing like my find of Podar. And thanks to the possibility to boost, 1 jump with 40.44 distance, I was able to reach this system, unfortunately no (landable) planets :(

    But an interesting view to the galaxy.

    The system is located 62,172.07 LYs from Sol, near Route 33, just a little detour of 6 systems.

    Detour to "The Distant view in blue"
    Pyrie Eurk NV-G c10-0 40.4
    Pyrie Eurk SB-F c11-0 26.2
    Pyrie Eurk IQ-P d5-2 9.6
    Pyrie Eurk IQ-P d5-1 33.4
    Pyrie Eurk OL-F c11-0 22.3
    Pyrie Eurk QX-U e2-0 The Distant view in blue





    The extended map

    Finally, here is an extended map that shows Route 33, the new POI, Beagle Point, Podar (a POI that I found half a year ago) and the other 3 well known routes:

    Svenno Crossing, data taken from Svenno's thread Exploration: Quest for the loneliest planet
    Beagle Crossing, only the start-point, as I have found no further data
    Roncevaux Crossing, data taken from Allitnil's post in Erimus' thread 65,000 LYs from home, on the fringe of intergalactic space...



    The orange lines in my route are areas with full-range plotting between the yellow points, and the yellow lines show the manual plotting areas. Of course this is valid for ships with a jump-range of at least 33.41, otherwise the full-range plotting may change to manual plotting. But, as I documented the complete route and each system and distance, it should be possible for ships with a lower jump-range to manage this route by using Jump-on-fumes or some FSD-Boosts.

    Although I think that this route sooner or later will be replaced by a better and more optimized route, I hope that it will be useful for explorers that may use this route for saving time to reach 65K or Beagle Point or as a basis for finding better routes.

    I thought that a route might be possible (with FSD Boosts) and had a look on the way to BP- but chickened out -(range anxiety) and did a bit of detour.

    Great work Stulli, and excellent write up

    Distant View in Blue could well be the most distant planetary nebula discovered so far if its in the Abyss!

    During Beagle Point Week there is a planned event out to explore Podar and with only one 40 LY jump to make along the Podar-Blue Route 33 it puts it in reach of most of the DW fleet.

    Will add that as an excursion event for DW.


    There's also a mission event to see if its possible to reach the Scutum-Centaurus rim further west than Svenno Crossing. I've been told its impossible but I'm sure a few of the fleet wouldn't mind still trying.

    Great journey and excellent writeup!

    Is the trip from Beagle Point until the start of the route unproblematic for ships with 33.4 LY range?

    The Distant view in blue is amazing, the blue seems stronger then in other similar nebulae. Really a shame it has no landables. The nearest system is 19 ly away, so no close up shots of the nebula.

    I visited it 3 days ago,it was first discovered by CMDR HAMSTELBASTER, whoever that is - respect.

    I did not expect to find a route through the Abyss without FSD Boosts, but in the end I had some luck to find it.

    Thanks, Erimus, that's an honour for me

    I am a little bit sad, because I had planned to catch up the DW-fleet as I came back with my 2nd CMDR on 20th February. But unfortunately since that day I have a pneumonia and I was not able to play the game since then.

    I started the route back coming from the west, not from BP. But I think it should be no problem with that jump-range.

    That's me, my 2nd CMDR

    Nice to meet you, commander.

    It looks amazing Can't wait to see it!

    Many thanks for this! I have just successfully crossed the far rim using this route, which has saved me days on my route to the Praei permit sectors from Podar and Beagle Point. o7
    .
    Two observations (bearing in mind my Asp Explorer has 33.30LY range on a full tank):
    • The way to the start of the route back across the abyss (SYRIAE THAA PJ-I D9-1) can be reached directly from Podar (MYEIA THAA ZE-R D4-0) in one plot with no jumponium.
    • It is possible to reach The Distant View in Blue with only a 34.88LY jump by crossing between PYRIE EURK IQ-P D5-0 and PYRIE EURK JL-P D5-0. Most people using this route should be able to make this, either with a low fuel jump or a pair of J1 boosts to get there and back.

    Great work! I tried finding a short cut after I got to BP. I didn't want to have to backtrack all the way to the Crossing. I made it about 3/4 of the way across the abyss and had to turn back as I didn't have the jump range to make it. I don't have Horizons, so boost wasn't an option. If anyone is interested in my route I tried, send me a message and I will send the info I have.

    Thanks for this heading towards ronc crossing atm may re route

  12. #12
    Yep, I finished the crossing today using Route 33. One bit of advice to anyone using it: STAY ON TARGET! A little bit past Distant Blue I got overconfident and tried to blaze my own trail in a more south-westerly direction. After many dead ends that even jumponium couldn't bypass due to empty space, I had to backtrack several hundred light years BACK to Route 33. The route works great, just stick to it and you'll put that Abyss right behind you!

    Many thanks for the route Stulli.
    I have just succefully completed the coreward crossing.
    Only another 58k or so to home!

    Thanks for this route!! Took it almost to the tee!

    Man, the abyss is a b....to cross!! Glad is behind me now, but wouldn't if it wasn't for this route!! ;-)

    Well it wouldn't be so much hassle if route planer would actually work in Elite
    On Route 33 sometimes it cannot plot 5 jumps even if you know there is a route and there is no jump bigger than 90% of you full fuel range...
