    Subsector metallicity and ELW ratios - analysis

    I've been looking into subsector / boxel metallicity and ELW / systems ratios for some time, but then carriers and such put that on hold. Now, with some more data since then, I redid the analysis and finished writing things up so that I can post them now. First off, an intro to those who might...

    Ship Integrity Question

    Hello I have a question on Ship Integrity that I can't really find a definitive answer to. I went on a trip to finish off "Elite" in Exploration, and when I got back from what must have been a journey of 20k LYs, I found my DBX at 58% Integrity. I took two auto field maintenance units with me...

    Signs of human life out in the black?

    So I recently stumbled upon this old gem the Hyponia Horizon Mission and I was really intrigued at the fact that they found what appeared to be crashed nav beacons and even an NPC system defense ship roughly 14kly from the nearest starport and its got me wondering if this is something that can...

    Missions to discover systems, planets, etc.

    Hi! An idea for discovery missions: The missions would be to discover certain planet or star types within a given LY range or sector, sub-sector near or around the bubble. So, let's say a faction is wanting to colonize a new earth-like far off. The mission is to actually be the first to...

    So multicrew doesn't provide any exploration rewards?

    I'm confused - I thought multicrew allowed copilots to share the discovery tags and rewards from universal cartography, but that's not what happen when I just tried it. Am I doing something wrong, or is only combat and trading rewarded? If the latter, while ignore one out of the three major rank...

    Fleet Carrier and Cartography Data. Reasoning for higher payouts...

    As fleet carriers are effectively mobile travelling stations, and to aid their future navigation. It’s in the best interests of that fleet carrier and its crew to amass as much cartography data as possible. (For realistic pretend gameplay reasons) Isn’t it a good idea for the FC’s cartography...

    Bread Crumbs

    It would be useful to have a "bread crumbs" feature on the SRV's scanner, so you can easily see where you have been. It feels like it would be a relatively common navigation software feature for and exploration vehicle like an SRV.

    Rent your FC for AFK credits!

    I don't know if I'll ever be able to afford a fleet carrier; I hate grinding and the nerfs are coming! Thing is, I don't need to own a fleet carrier to do what I want. I would happily rent a FC from another player, but this means that player would need to actually "give" me their carrier for a...

    Exploration in a wing when bodies have already been discovered

    Hypotetical : Let's say I scanned a whole system with fss, then sell it. Then make a wing with my buddy. Does he see the system as undiscovered? Can he/we still scan it for him to then sell? Trying to understand how "already known" data is shared in a wing. Thanks!

    Key toggle for Map/Orrery view. And pinned tabs for Sys Map

    A bit of a QoL improvement for the exploring kind. And why not others, as well. But yeah, like the title says. A bindable key one can press to switch between Map and Orrery views while perusing the System Map. It's kind of jarring at the moment as the view selection buttons hide inside the...

    To contrast my other thread of mine about the lovely pirating opportunities that Borann brought to the game, I'm now encountering one of the major flaws of Borann (and perhaps mining in general) - the devaluation of credits. Things that used to make feel like I accomplished something no longer...

    A question about UC on FC

    Here's a simple question that would potentially make a huge difference to a poor explorer like me. Will carrier owners make any credits when another player uses their UC?
