To see a World in a Grain of Sand
And a Heaven in a Wild Flower,
Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand
And Eternity in an hour.
After flying back to the bubble to upgrade my fuel scoop and buy a new ship I decided to pop into the engineers to see what was required to upgrade thrust and FSD range. I have never visited an engineer before and after spending about an hour clicking just to get my standing up for second level I just...just couldn't continue, it contains all the elements I find most depressing and off putting in a game all rolled up into one package, the RNG, the endless grind to get mats, the sitting there clicking buttons endlessly, so level 1upgrade is all I will ever get from engineers I guess!
After that experience I had to go back and do something I enjoy, so I have started a new thread called "A journey to small places."
This is a tour to the potato shaped planets and moons, the tiny rocks like grains of sand, William Black seemed appropriate. I will search out reports of tiny bodies and large rocks, visit them, explore them and post here my findings and feelings. I will list them here on the first page. There is only one criteria for my journey, the body in question must be under 200klms in radius, I don't care how far I have to travel to get to it, although the further away ones may take a while to get to. Feel free to send me names and links. I am starting here, stand by for my first report!
Note the list is in size order, not the order in the thread.
