    Hey Everybody! My name is izaznz and I am a newer player with about 50 hours of gameplay to my name. Ive been interested in exploring for a while and I just recently bought myself an Asp Explorer. My only problem is I have no clue where to go! My goal is to go explore some currently unexplored...

    Wing exploration?

    I we do exploration in a wing, will a detailed surface scan be shared with wing members? This post seem to hint at that: Source: https://www.reddit.com/r/EliteDangerous/comments/a77r4m/road_to_riches_wing_edition_perfect_for_new/

    About biological discoveries

    Hi Commanders! I've been exploring since a long time know, but I still haven't discovered any biological elements by myself. So I am wondering: can we know if a stellar body has biological elements using the FSS and/or the DSS? At first, I thought that it would be the case, since we can learn...

    To Frontier: what are multicrew exploration rewards supposed to be?

    Ever since it was implemented in the first beta of Chapter Four, multi-crew exploration never rewarded the crew's effort with anything. No credits, no rank progression. (Also no tags, but that is probably for the best.) To make sure, neither after the session, nor when the host sells the data...

    Newcomer / Intro Navigation question - non-selectable stars

    I am currently on an exploration expedition on my own. While following my originally plotted route, I saw an interesting star cluster and now I want to fly towards it (or see if it is even reachable). Now, when in-flight, you can't just press A on the controller to select any star, and I can't...

    Long Range Vulture

    Hi All, I just participated in and completed Distant Worlds 2 which was my first long range exploration trip. Prior to that my longest journey was about 17K ly in an Anaconda with no engineering, at the time I thought that was a long distance but that barely scratched the surface. As long, and...

    Voyager Trail Expedition - Gauging Interest

    Closely related to the awesome research Stealthie is doing, I thought I'd see what the interest is among DW2 participants for an official (or unofficial, or casual) expedition following the Voyager Trail back to the bubble. OFFICIAL VOYAGER TRAIL EXPEDITION OPTION? I couldn't find anything...

    Dark/unexplored regions GalMap marker

    Hello, Can we have the visited regions/systems be highlighted using the galaxy Power Play "controlled", bubble-like markers? I think this would give deep-space explorers better visibility, and could help us increase that small percentage of (0.036%) visited systems, faster. This would be...

    Geology Matters!

    I'm really loving the new exploration mechanisms and tools. We're finding new and incredible things every day, and the Distant Worlds 2 Expedition opened my horizons beyond anything I'd ever imagined. But in spite of the sheer number of geological sites we can now discover, I feel like something...

    Newcomer / Intro Satellites - Have they been removed? Please help.

    I've spent many, many hours trying to find the satellites (usually in orbit around earth-like worlds) that I've read about and watched on numerous videos, but I cannot find any, anywhere. I just want to know if they have been removed so I can stop wasting my time. I cannot find a definitive...

I have fun capturing their messages and attempting to discover the location of the original signal. However, I need to admit that I have trouble doing exactly that. Until now...

    Is this all we can discover?

    My question is simple: are all the geological and organic structures, anomalies, etc. discovered? obviously i'm not talking about finds, like "hey, i first discovered a planet and it has bark mounds", i'm talking about brand new stuff that is not in the CODEX, because nobody found them yet. are...

    Stars colliding orbit?

    Anybody wanna come back here later and see if the brown dwarf morphs into its star? Seems like its orbit is way too close. Surely not realistic?.. Source: https://imgur.com/gallery/4kU5T4v (ignore previous post, its duped)

    Is the Exclusion Zone of a Black Hole some multiple of the Schwartschild Radius?

    So I'm watching this rather interesting video on Photon orbits around black holes (i.e. what does a Blackhole actually look like anyways) So this brings me a question. Now that I've visited Sag A* and also visited smaller mass Black holes as well I am beginning to wonder what the "Body...

    Look.... I know you are hard at work playing with dinosaurs at the moment and all but I think we need a few bread crumbs, a mystery, something. A hint to undiscovered content, a lead in the direction of anything, you have that power! Isn't it great? I'm not saying I am bored or anything, I mean...

    Router Plotter Bias

    I'm a beachcomber, meaning I like to look for undiscovered worlds close to the Bubble. I'll find a section of space I'm interested in and then perform a volumetric search pattern in that area. This means I'm manually picking the next system to jump to via the galaxy map, no routes. In this...

    Are Research Limpets just for Thargoids?

    Remove grid overlay on planets when not using DSS

    While the grid overlay is super useful and makes sense while you are mapping with the discovery scanner, it makes very little sense afterwards to have the big blue overlay on afterwards. It might be nice in the niche case that you want to map a lot of bodies right next to eachother and don't...
