List of Earth-like worlds, v2

Sounds good, I'll definitely make a note and a count if such planets do exist.
Also, I'll check Wabash's then, as I'm in the bubble anyway. For future reference, if somebody hasn't been playing for a long while, sending them a PM tends to be the best way, as people usually notice that.
 
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).
It looks like the ELW in Flyooe Bli QF-C d14-124 lies in L4.





Fly/land safe.

I've added trojans into the rarity calculation, and that boosted Wabash's ELW to the highest rarity score. However, if all 12 candidates (see here) turned out to be trojans and they were all on the list, then the record would go back to ReggieNoble's previous one.
So, anyone fancy a trip? :D
 
Well, I would say they really are trojan systems, because to get into that list three parameters need to be (almost) equal and a fourth needs to have a difference of 60 degrees. The chance that this happens by chance AND it is an ELW is … well … really really … really really … really really … really really really low. ;)
So i would say nobody needs to go there to confirm it … trust the data.
 
I'd say "trust and verify", but the main thing is not all twelve candidates found on EDSM are here on the list, only four of them are.

I'm back after a two-year vacation in Colonia. I discovered three ELW's on the way to Sag A. Let me know if I did this right.

This is a slight variation of a russion proverb ("trust, but verify") which is accredited to W.I. Lenin … But then, considering your pseudonym, you may have heard him say that … just kidding ;)

I may not understand this.
So we have Orvidius list with the ELW's in trojan systems but just four of them are in your list of ELW's. Is that it?
If yes, I have the same problem. Orvidius seems to have an additional datasource and mostly always very up to date data (I think), while I use just the EDSM bodies.json file which is updated just every second week.
But then, as I said, I may misunderstand the actual problem.
 
Marx is talking about his calculations for the comparative rarity of different types of ELW planets. With only three or four members in the subset, "Trojan ELWs" are now one of the rarest categories, and the new "rarest ELW" is the Pipe (stem) Trojan with a score of 99.16, because of the combination of Trojan-ness and other rare things like the number of moons. But if more Trojans were added to the list, then their (comparative) rarity goes down.

Marx's database is a fairly small subset of the total known ELWs, as it is compiled only from contributors here on the forum and who have posted the required information in this thread (or its predecessor). It's currently at 16,200 planets - much smaller than the data-dump lists. When I did the comparison to see if any of Orvidius' twelve hits were in the ELW list, I expected maybe one or two, if any. Finding four was unexpected.

The list in this thread is older, but it grows slower than the EDSM list due to the smaller number of participants. There is a lot of overlap between EDSM and this list, but there are still some planets in this list (mainly the older ones which predate the invention of EDSM) which haven't made it into EDSM yet.
 
@ SoylentHeston: Welcome! Sure, it looks almost all good. The one missing thing is the star class, since you left out the full classification. What we use here is the exact same as appears on the galaxy map, so for example, "K3 VAB". I can look that up though, since it's just three systems now.

Nah, I actually haven't heard of it. Haven't heard Lenin say anything either :D (Would have been a big surprise.) And it seems like people always forget about Groucho.
Well anyway, back on topic:

If yes, I have the same problem. Orvidius seems to have an additional datasource and mostly always very up to date data (I think), while I use just the EDSM bodies.json file which is updated just every second week.
There isn't just bodies.json, but also bodies7days.json. You can grab more up-to-date data from there, without always having to download the entire dump.

Also, to add a bit about what Sapyx has said, consider this: on a rough average, around 250 ELWs get added here every month. On EDSM, more than 5000, so twenty times as many. The list was made before EDSM, and with the latest additions on the April update, the game logs almost everything that's on here now, so there isn't much of a reason to keep it around anymore. But there are only a few people submitting, so it's not a lot of work.

Suddenly regretting my cherry-picking ways!

That's basically how I'm getting my data. I built the database using the large bodies.json, and then keep it up to date by importing the bodies7days.json every two days. Occasionally I've had to re-sync from the large bodies.json again when I discover that I missed something, like rings on stars, or surface pressure (that last two cases that required such a large sync).
 
Fixed!

Another small batch.
