List of Earth-like worlds, v2

Late add-from my last trip... I found it untagged but then realized EDMC showed the System with a green dot.
Upon closer inspection, I found out another EDSM user had already scanned the System very recently, hence I held off selling my Data (no tag-stealing) .

Seems a 3rd Explorer has passed it and returned in the meantime, as the ELW was found tagged today.

On the previous page of the topic there are examples of systems that are not fully scanned. I think it is very important to scan the system completely if there is an ELWs and we are engaged in compiling this list.
A few ELW's to the submission sheet. Have quite a few from DW2 tour and from previous explorations. I haven't submitted for a while so will put on batches when possible.

Noticed last week on another Forum post there was an ELW orbiting a solo T star. As I had just returned from DW2 and was only 1800lyrs away had to investigate this. Noticed it had not been submitted to the list. Now it has :)
Thanks for that! Didn't think it was possible.
Where did you find that forum post, by the way?

In that case, only the following are missing:
  • ELW directly orbiting a class O star (incl. a solo primary)
  • ELW in a class Y main star system
  • ELW directly orbiting a Wolf-Rayet star (incl. a solo primary)
  • ELW orbiting a sole primary white dwarf
I'm fairly certain these are all impossible, except perhaps the last one - but hey, I'd very much like it if the Forge proved me wrong.

We need a supercomputer with Stellar Forge installed. Or need to explore a lot and wait)

It would be interesting to know when it was found.

CMDR Prowler goes Colonia.
Well, she finally arrived after a two months trip via the Formidine Rift, and kept accurate track of all ELWs on her way.
No less than 28, and the last five she discovered on the very last day, on the last <1000ly to Colonia.
Added also a couple of links to scenic shots in the notes; yeah, her ship, the AspX Jolly Jumper, is a bit of a diva and had to be on each of them...

There are a few that had already been discovered by somebody else and thus might already be registered in the list - I haven't checked.

Alas, it includes one "steal": Eorgh Prou XY-I d9-1293 ABC 8 had been registered on EDSM by CMDR esb, but he had not yet sold his data. I noticed it only after I FSS scanned everything already. Once I noticed that the system was not yet tagged, I did not map anything. But as I had >2500 systems to sell, I sold them per page and thus the system is now tagged by me - if he did, he will at least get the map tag - sorry...
It's an interesting one as well, orbiting 3 stars of which one is a M giant 6kls away - no scenic shot as I didn't go there to map it.

It would be interesting to know when it was found.
I was wondering that. EDSM says it was uploaded by Mighty-si but not dated when. Good job it was uploaded to EDSM at some point or we would still have no idea a T Star could home an ELW. I thought it was impossible as T stars seem not to have secondary stars in the system to generate more heat so perhaps there could be a chance of one orbiting a Y star-that would be something to find!

Attached a couple of pics- not brilliant as there is very little light showing from the Star (even as close as 6.5ls the ELW is dim)

And the system map-


Formerly 'Cmdr Agatosh'
38 new submissions in the public spreadsheet. Nicest one this time would be the ELW orbiting a white dwarf. The main star is a black hole and there are no other stars present. There is almost no difference in light level between the night side and the day side of the planet. Remember to bring your night vision goggles if you want to visit :p.
All updated again. Despite this "month" being shorter (due to my delayed update earlier), it's 258 ELWs this time around. Thanks again to those Commanders who submit in a format that I don't have to work much on, especially on the submissions sheet!

Also, I'll be on holiday from June 16 to July 4, so the next update will be after then.
OK, finally in port in Colonia after my first ED7K sector survey. 30 ELWs to report, five of which were first discovered by other CMDRs. A nice symmetrical report: 8 ELWs on the way from the Bubble out to the Thraikoo Sector, 14 in Thraikoo during the survey, and 8 more on the way back to Colonia.

So, what have I got in this haul? Well, there's one more ELW moon - bringing my total of ELMs to 4. There were zero ringed ELWs, bringing my total number of ringed ELWs found to... well, still zero. The winner of the "Earth-like that's most like Earth" award goes to two planets at opposite ends of the list: Col 285 Sector and Mylaifaa JH-C, which both come up as nice matches for Earth's mass, gravity, volcanism and axial tilt.

Because there's so many of them, I won't do my usual paragraph on each. Just a quick one-or-two-sentence summary. I have also classified each of them by their ELW "Group", as per the gravity-pressure plot: Group 1 are small and moderate, Group 2 are medium and thick, Group 3 are large and thin.

Scorpius Dark Region - I found this one prior to the Survey proper, while on a shakedown cruise to decide if I liked the Supercruise Assist enough to keep it. Good Earth-analogue, if a bit chilly. Group 2.

Col 285 - the Earth-likeness is marred by also being a thick-atmosphered Group 2. Cool.

Col 359 - A small Group 1 jungle planet, not far from the Sadr Sector outpost. A fully explored system - I didn't get to plant a Tag here.

Sifi - Another Group 1 jungle planet, slightly warmer than the last one. My first Mapped ELW tag of the trip.

Blau Thua - My first undiscovered ELW of the trip, a temperate Group 3 world twice the mass of Earth.

Blo Thaa - another Group 3 world; the only truly Earth-like thing about the place is the surface temperature.

Byoi Thaa - out into "clear space" with few Tags, heading for my destination in the Perseus Crags. This world is another Group 1 jungle; it's "moon" is actually a terraformable waterworld in binary orbit; tidal locking gives this world a "day" that's two weeks long.

Blia Euhn - Group 1 tundra planet, with virtually no ocean present.

Thraikoo Sector Survey Discoveries:
BA-A - the moon and the day length are the only reminders of the homeworld on this fetid, high-gravity swamp world Group 3.
QE-H - this Group 1 tundra world rotates so fast its day is only 12 hours long.
GU-A - the mythical planet Hoth is only slightly less hospitable than this utterly un-Earth-like ELW. Group 3.
HN-A - Group 1 tundra world, rather pleasant to live on, actually.
NX-U - This Group 2 world would be a paradise, if the air weren't so chokingly thick; at over 4 atmospheres, it's near the limit of Human tolerance without genetic or technological modification.
EW-E - a temperate Group 1 world, not too bad.
YU-P - I'll have to say "nope" to YU-P, another unpleasant Group 3 world.
LQ-X - It's another Group 2, meaning thick air covering an otherwise pleasant environment.
LC-T - All the parameters of this Group 1 world are just slightly "wrong" for Earth-natives; it will take some getting used to. The seas on this world are small and separated by wide stretches of barren land.
CA-A - another hot little Group 1 jungle world. At 307 K, it's extra hot.
NC-V - Another weird little Group 1 temperate world. At least the moon is in the right place.
BR-M - Being in position 2 around this G9 class star isn't quite warm enough; this Group 3 world is an iceball. Having a 90 degree axial tilt won't help with the unpleasantness.
NR-B - The most habitable planet in this complex and generally hostile system, the ELW is quite far from the arrival point, and a disappointing desert planet with a two-month-long "day" when you arrive.
IE-X - I'm going to call this planet "Gloom" - this Mars-sized world is simply too far away from its two dim yellow-red suns to get much light, or heat.

I also visited planet HHV d2-7 in the survey, which was the only world in the Thraikoo Sector in the ELW List before I arrived. Since it was a "known" ELW that I was previously aware of and that I deliberately targeted, I didn't include the system or the planet in the Survey results.

Pria Phlai - Temperate Group 3. OK, if you don't mind the extra gravity.

Prie Ail - Group 1 tundra world, with an average temperature at the freezing point of water.

Greou Hypooe - Group 3 jungle planet. The only thing interesting about this world is the slightly elliptical but near-90-degree orbit the planet takes around its star.

Floalk - this large sub-freezing Group 3 planet spins so fast, if we colonize the equator, the centripetal force ought to cancel out the high gravity, making it rather pleasant there.

Eorgh Flyoae - Life on this dismal, dry little Group 1 moon wouldn't be very pleasant; fortunately, the planet it orbits is terraformable.

Eephaik - Quite a tropical paradise, here on this humid Group 1 planet.

Mylaifaa QT-H - another frigid ice world, barely qualifying for the habitable rating. Group 1.

Mylaifaa JH-C - If it weren't a stifling hot desert planet with a super-thick atmosphere, this place would be really nice. Group 2.

Dryoea Flyao RU-D d13-2379 B 2 a Moon Data :
Turns out that a couple of the planets in the ELW database may actually be much rarer than their discoverers may have noticed - they've turned up in Orvidius' EDSM data-mining expedition to find Trojan ELWs. The system maps posted in the ELW database look promising, but if the commanders who found them are able to take time out to post a pic of the orrery maps of the systems in question, to confirm that these worlds are in fact Trojans, then Marx may well reward you with a super-rare ELW category just for you. ;)

@Cmdr Agatosh, your planet in the Eok Flyuae RJ-O d7-2577 system is a candidate.

@Steyla, your planet in the Flyooe Bli QF-C d14-124 system is a candidate.

@Jan Eppendorf, your planet in the Syralie SK-C d14-2 system is a candidate.

Commander Wabash, if you're watching this thread and/or still playing ED, your world in the Pipe (stem) Sector ZE-A d101 system is also a candidate. Unfortunately, the picture for that planet in the database has a dead link, so if Cmdr Wabash is now retired, we'll need someone to fly over there to check it out. Fortunately, it's not far from the bubble (unlike Steyla's planet, which is way over on the far side of the galaxy from pretty much everybody).
