I'm out there now, and the new blueprints were one of the motivations (I intended to make the trip at some point anyway, I've tended to explore the peripheries of the Galaxy previously). I have slightly less jump-range in my Phantom at around 65 ly and the trip wasn't too bad at all. I did it over 2 or 3 evenings. I didn't use the Neutron Highway - stopped every now and then to scan... put my name on a few systems etc. I'll head over to Sag A at some point. It's quite nice out here, I say do it.I must be mad, but I am considering going to Colonia, for the Shield Cell upgrade.
Part of the appeal is trying out neutron star jumps for the first time, and just to have something different to do.
Am I right in thinking IF I do this, I could self destruct, and respawn back in the bubble? Or would I respawn at the engineer base in Colonia?
Also would I need to take all the shield cells I want to upgrade with me, so I can add the experimental effects. Or could I just pin the blueprint (and hope that it sticks) and do the upgrades back home in the bubble, including the experimental effects?
I've got a 70 LY Annie to make the trip with.
If anyone wants to talk me out of this, then feel free.
