August Exodus - A Jaunt to Jaques

The Google+ Exploration Community in association with the Galactic Mapping Team

"A new life awaits you in the off world colony - a chance to begin again in a golden land of adventure and opportunity."

The colony in question may only contain a single structure (for the time being), Jaques Station, but it is steadily becoming a hive of activity, with NPCs and players coming and going, mining operations underway, and even searches for Barnacle sites within the Colonia Nebula itself. Effectively a 'micro bubble' has opened up, complete with a fledgling economy thanks to players shipping commodities back and forth since Jaques' discovery.

This is a real opportunity to show FD that dev time fleshing out this tiny speck of human endeavor is worth their while. If enough players come along on the adventure, and add to the early pioneer efforts, it could really help cement the positive vibes rumored of what FD may have planned for this part of the Galaxy - an incentive to create some tangible content out there for explorers to interact with and utilize for evermore - something a lot of us have campaigned for since the very early days of deep space exploration!

A recent GalNet article gave a few hints that something may come of this... a CG maybe? or a series of CGs? Building Colonies using existing game mechanics? - A Proposal to FD.

From GalNet news :

Galactic News: Jaques Station on the Mend 07 JUL 3302

Only a week after an independent mission was launched to bring aid to Jaques Station, personnel at the starport have reported that limited repairs have been completed. A member of the station's technical team confirmed that meta-alloys had been used to partially restore the starport's commodities market, and went on to say:

"We're hugely grateful to all the pilots who have so selflessly made the long trek to Eol Prou RS-T d3-94. But we feel bad about not being able to reimburse those who schlepped out here, so we're trying to secure funds for a proper campaign to repair the starport. More details will follow soon."

Meanwhile, reports have surfaced of an increasing number of independent pilots and civilian delegations departing for Eol Prou RS-T d3-94, indicating a strong impulse to establish permanent bases in the region.

Imagine how many players will take an interest if there's a fully sanctioned set of CGs to build a fledgling colony around Jaques' location - be it a mining outpost, scientific array, or tourism destination. This could really capture the imagination of the playerbase as it could open up long distance trading opportunities, passenger missions, courier missions, even opportunities for scientific endeavor with the location being on the edge of the galactic core, a mere 12,000 light years from Sagittarius A*.

Update : Since the inception of this idea (first mentioned here), two community goals have been launched by FD. The itinerary and goals of August Exodus have been amended slightly to take into account these CGs! :)

The Expedition :

A Jaunt to Jaques...

Expedition Leaders : Sham Gaz & members of the Google+ Exploration Community.
Route Maps & Itinerary : Courtesy of The Galactic Mapping Team.
Expedition Logo : Qohen Leth.

August Exodus - A Jaunt to Jaques is an expedition that has been planned since Jaques' discovery, and now that the Dangerous Games are over, the time for its launch is here. It's an adventure set up by the Google+ Elite Community in association with the Galactic Mapping Team (who provided the route & itinerary). The expedition out to the Colonia Nebula is ideal for all those interested in Jacques' story and who want to put their weight behind a venture that could lead to actual permanent content far beyond the bubble. A 22,000 LY trip out to the western edges of the galactic core, complete with interesting scientific and visual POIs along the way, and even basecamp rendezvous points for those social gatherings that made the DWE so much fun. All of which make this the most interesting "shipping lane" to date!

The outward bound journey consists of 6 major POIs - including one unique one! Michell's Legacy (more details below). The route also includes 3 optional basecamps that can act as welcome rest stops and social gathering points for those heading out there.

The return leg consists of 5 major waypoints, including a further 3 basecamps - one of which (Mors Pit) makes Drake's Ridge of DWE infamy look like the garden of Eden! Its one of the most eerie places you can visit, a location in perpetual twilight and shrouded in an ominous thick green mist, and surrounded by mysterious noises. Don't go exploring the Pit alone!

The Departure Point :

Planet: B1
Gravity: 0.11G
Location: -53.09 / 179.33

You can find the landing guide here.

The journey is scheduled to bring players to Jaques by early-August and late-August respectively. Upon arrival those wanting to stick around and help with mining operations (bring mining lasers!), or help with the barnacle hunt are encouraged to do so, and those wanting to make a return to the bubble and get back home in time for September's Galactic Nebula Expedition should have plenty of time too.

For ideas of what ship builds to consider for this trip, check out Henkka77's thread : Here.

For those making the return journey, you'll notice the final waypoint passes through the Dumbbell Nebula. This is an opportunity for explorers to help CMDR Elementical's great pioneering effort to completely sector map the Dumbbell Sector - details of which can be found : Here.

For those interested in Jaques' backstory and how its effected current events, you can read up on it here : Jaques the Cyborg

The Route :


Waypoint #1
Thor's Eye

A Black Hole system situated approx. 250 LYs 'south' of the Lagoon Nebula. Thor's Eye is situated within the middle of an open cluster named NGC 6530. The cluster is composed mainly by B-class stars and few A-class too.

There's an A white-blue supergiant (HD 164865) and many B-class stars that have neutron companions or black holes within the system.

This waypoint not only has the spectacular visual effects of Thor's Eye itself to enjoy, but can also be a lucrative place to bring back scan data from.

Waypoint #2
The Lagoon Nebula

A distinctive green and orange nebula situated on the near rim of the Norma arm, approx. 4,500 LYs from Sol.

The Lagoon offers one of the most visually stunning backdrops currently discovered. It was one of the highlight waypoint locations visited during the Distant Worlds Expedition of 3302.

Waypoint #3
The Omega Nebula
Basecamp rendezvous point : Camp Baatuta

A small nebula situated within the Sagittarius arm, close to the much more visually stunning Lagoon Nebula, approx. 5,500 LYs from Sol.

Home to Camp Baatuta - the 3rd basecamp used during Distant Worlds 3302.

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #1) :
Wed 27th Jul
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(or six hours later @ 01:00 Gametime Other)

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #2) :
Thu 18th Aug
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(or six hours later @ 01:00 Gametime Other)

Convoy #2 Pilots wanting to take part in the Mining CG are recommended to skip the following waypoints and head straight to Jaques after the Omega meetup (the mining CG ends August 25th).

Waypoint #4
The Eagle Nebula

Small-medium sized nebula situated within the Sagittarius arm, approx. 7,000 LYs from Sol.

The Eagle Nebula contains scores of tightly packed young F5 class stars, making it a hotbed of scientific research and well within reach for short-range exploration vessels.

Waypoint #5
The Skaudai Nebula
Basecamp rendezvous point : Vespera Vision

Medium sized pink and red nebula situated within the central Norma Arm, approx. 11,700 LYs from Sol.

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #1) :
Sun 31st Jul
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(19:00 Gametime Other)

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #2) :
Mon 22nd Aug
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(or six hours later @ 01:00 Gametime Other)

Waypoint #6
Michell's Legacy
Basecamp rendezvous point : Camp Cly

A system containing 6 black holes. One of the highest concentrations of system-specific black holes currently discovered, it is named in honour of John Michell who first postulated the existence of black holes back in the 18th century.

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #1) :
Wed 3rd Aug
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(or six hours later @ 01:00 Gametime Other)

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #2) :
Thu 25th Aug
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(or six hours later @ 01:00 Gametime Other)

Waypoint #7
The Colonia Nebula (Jaques Station)
Rendezvous point : Jaques Bar!

The Colonia Nebula was an unremarkable medium-sized nebula situated on the western edge of the galactic core - and on the outer edged of the more prominent Festival Grounds. That was until June 3302 when the nebula became a hotbed of exploration after the missing starport, Jaques Station, was discovered within its outer regions.

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #1) :
Sun 7th Aug
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(19:00 Gametime Other)

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #2) :
Mon 29th Aug
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(or six hours later @ 01:00 Gametime Other)

Waypoint #8
The Wind Chime Nebula

Hanging below the Galactic Plane and about 1,100 LYs from the nearest member of the local nebulae group that make up the Festival Grounds Cluster, this nebula rewards those who visit it with a stunning view of pink and blue colours.

Waypoint #9
The Kes-75 Magnetar
Basecamp rendezvous point : Caligo Canyon

This double neutron star system (a magnetar in real life) sits on the very western tip of the Norma Expanse.

The magnetar - a type of neutron star with a magnetic field so strong it could rip the iron out of your blood from many thousands of kilometers away, was first discovered by CMDR 59thLefy in March 3301.

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #1) :
Wed 10th Aug
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(or six hours later @ 01:00 Gametime Other)

(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(or six hours later @ 01:00 Gametime Other)

Waypoint #10
The Flyiedgai Nebula
Basecamp rendezvous point : Mors Pit

A medium sized pink and red nebula situated within the central Norma Arm, approx. 11,200 LYs from Sol.

This nebula is home to the 'Mors Pit' basecamp (pictured) - one of the most eerie places one can land at due to its surface conditions and perpetual twilight.

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #1) :

Sun 14th Aug
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(19:00 Gametime Other)

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #2) :

Sun 4th Sep
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(19:00 Gametime Other)

Waypoint #11
NGC 6751
Basecamp rendezvous point : Olympus Plateau

NGC 6751 is a planetary nebula in the constellation Aquila. The nebula is estimated to be around 0.8 light-years in diameter and is simply a gem of the galaxy to behold.

It is centered on a Wolf-Rayet star, contains five ringed gas giants, whose 18 moons are all 100% metal and landable.

The planetary nebula is home to the Olympus Plateau - one of the final Carina-Sagittarius Mission basecamps.

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #1) :
Wed 17th Aug
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(or six hours later @ 01:00 Gametime Other)

Rendezvous Time (Convoy #2) :
Wed 7th Sep
(19:00 Gametime Euro)
(or six hours later @ 01:00 Gametime Other)

Waypoint #12
The Dumbbell Nebula

The Dumbbell Nebula (also known as Apple Core Nebula, Messier 27, M 27, or NGC 6853) is a planetary nebula in the constellation Vulpecula, at a distance of about 1,360 light-years from Sol.

The final waypoint of the return journey.

What's so special about Jaques' location, and why build a colony there?


Looking at the above map, Jaques is perfectly placed. He is situated in a region of distinctive nebulae - ideal for tourism and scientific research. He is also in reasonable commute range to 3 permit locked systems; Hyponia, Froadik, and the Bleia Zone beyond the galactic core. Sagittarius A* is only 12,000 LYs from the Colonia Nebula too.

If a colony was to be built here it could act as the perfect trading outpost once those mysteries permit zones are opened up (and provided they're home to friendly civilizations!).

Convoy 1 Community Goal : Haulage


Locating the Commodities :

Just type in your current system and see where the closest ones are :

Convoy 2 Community Goal : Mining

The build a base CG has now been launched by FD.


Pilots are tasked to mine and deliver Osmium to Jaques.

Convoy 1 stragglers and Convoy 2 pilots are encouraged to take mining equipment.

A competition! - Name the Celestial Silk Road :

We would like someone from the community to name this travel route. Its name will be marked on the maps so the name should fit in with the spirit of the game, so sensible suggestions only please ;)

I suppose that we should also include a discussion on security for the expedition.

I am given to think that our days of roaming free are curtailed.

Route name suggestion: Colonia Corridor

signed up. great idea for prolonged summernights. I'll see that i catch some hypergiants on the way, and will search for the pistol star :)
Hi Cmdr's, signed up, for the 15th Aug departure date, I may be being a tad optimistic with this though, being as i'm still bouncing around the Beagle point area, and i'm away on hols from 20th Jul till 7th Aug
I'm taking a wandering, winding route back from the CNE, and going to be on the GNE, but the way I'm coming back might well mean I hit the Lagoon Nebula around the same time as the Jacques I won't be coming along but I could end up rendezvousing with you [up]
Ok, I should be able to make it back for the second convoy!!! I hope...

Edit: signed up for the 15 August departure...have no idea what my ship is going to be.

Good idea :)

I'll ask Iridium Wing if they're available to escort the convoys out of the bubble and beyond the frontier [up]
As I'm scouting for GNE i won't be able to follow this exact route, but I should be at Jaques at the right time to meet up with ya'll for a while :)

I will bring brandy :p

Im already out here to welcome everyone, inital efforts are underway by hardy volunteers and pioneers so come and join us in mid august. Looking forward to seeing more friendly faces around

Sometime closer to the time, we need to get together and coordinate a mass meetup once the Convoys begin arriving at Jaques. This could be a big media event, with videos, blogs, and even some DW-style events arranged. Something like this can really bring Jacques (and the push for a colony) to the wider world beyond these forums.

This is the type of player created content that this community is known for, its a perfect opportunity to write another chapter.
