List of Earth-like worlds, v2

I Made Something

Noticed there's coordinates for about a third the ELWs contributed. Diff'd the Data sheet against the Coords sheet to see what was missing, then removed the dupes to account for multiple-ELW systems.

7,209 contributed ELWs
4,540 contributed ELW-containing systems without coords
1,276 of these systems exist in EDSM

Parsing out the locked coords wasn't too bad after that.

1,276 system coordinate dump: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/13xIeHFWHRgBHJzeUXit2D3KhXGkM_IEa6nTDGkOAp8g/edit#gid=0

The rest of the systems either don't exist in EDSM yet (2,886) or are missing coords because they're from EDMC-/EDD-prased pre-2.1 netLogs and trilatation wasn't finished yet (378).

Thanks for the submissions! They're added to the list now.
Also, to clean things up a bit and streamline them (because of upcoming stuff that does increase load), I've created a new sheet to which anyone can request write access to and add their entries there if they wish to. You can find it at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/15nMqKA5C-kVHixuLf3-p1uqrkDIoSe0yS84Mw6yQ-Fs/edit?usp=sharing, and it's also listed in the first post. I'd rather not have it be anonymously writable though, to prevent vandalism. I can separate sheets for different people there: if you'd like to have one of your own, let me know in in your edit access message please! Also, I'll modify the original sheet's permissions on the day after tomorrow.

On another note, could someone near Colonia check the few missing distances from Jaques station please? They are at the end of the "Eol Prou sector" sheet: right now, six systems in total.
Neat! I just finished making an Excel sheet last night that builds the BBCode table for me, otherwise I'd be all over this.

I noticed you have a few more columns now than what's in the first post. Are you going to want those columns added to submission through forum posts? Can do if so, but figured I'd ask.
 
Some more ELWs.

@ thadius856: first off, thanks for the missing coordinates, and the missing systems!
Also, yeah, the missing columns of the "First star" and "ELW is orbiting" are deliberate. They can be created from the supplied info already, and the less fields I ask people to fill out when they submit the better. Of course, I'd be grateful if you added them to your submissions, as that still saves me a bit of time.

From your latest submission, could you re-upload the screenshot for SYNUEFE LE-Y B34-0? Looks like you accidentally put an EDD screenshot there.

Here's a major addition to the sheet that I've recently been working on, with some help from MattG: rarity scores! These show how rare a given Earth-like is compared to the rest of the list, not their numbers in the galaxy. (We don't have nearly enough data for that.) This means that the scores are also dynamic, so expect them to change as new entries are added to the list. Also, the score goes up till 100, and a higher numbers are better: the higher it is, the more rare it is on the list.


For a bit more details on how the score is calculated:
the score itself is based on a number of factors. These are:
- Main star type
- Star types that the ELW is orbiting
- Number of stars the ELW is orbiting
- Rings
- Number of moons around the Earth-like
- Whether an Earth-like is a moon
- Binary / trinary pairs

You can see how exactly these are calculated on the "Rarity" sheet, where the calculations are done. Almost everything is weighed equally, so they are of equal importance, with the exception of main star types and the orbiting star(s) type: we take the square root of their rarities. That one's to take care of cases where an ELW co-orbits the main star of a system. (Theoretically, it would have been better to include logical checks for this, but this numerical solution that Matt suggested is cleaner and more efficient than that while still being a pretty good approximation.)

As for the factors, you might notice that some are absent. Only star types are counted, and not their luminosities. This is mostly because factoring in those would lead to rather big discrepancies in rarities. System mass codes also aren't counted, because they are mostly present in the star types anyway: rare mass codes involve stars which are already rare.
For those rare cases where we don't know whether a submitted ELW has moons or rings (because of lower quality screenshots where they aren't visible), we assume they don't.

Currently, the holder of the highest rarity score is Crookoa ZY-R d4-930 ABCD 1 f, discovered by CMDR GreyAreaUK. Right on, Commander! That one's a ringed ELM orbiting a dwarf star that's co-orbiting four stars. (The cherry on top would be that it also has enough argon in its atmosphere to have ice in its surface composition, and is tidally locked to boot. But OCR data isn't used in the rarity score yet.)

Also, I've included some personal FD rarity score stats on the Contributors sheet. I'll probably add more, but I'll need to do some cleaning up first.

Thanks for reading, and have fun!

Can't rep you, but it's a great addition :)

And grats CMDR GreyAreaUK. I guess I'm off to find binary ringed ELWs that are also moons of something whilst each having 2 of their own moons, and that orbit 5 stars... *cough*
 
Thought I'd send this one in separately and the rest when I finish my trip. But we met up to do this.

Congratulations on the triple tag on an ELW. I tried the same but it only tagged with 1 commanders name :(

Have a few double tags on ELW's though (over 100) :)

Original post updated.
 
I have some ELWs to submit, but I'm not sure how to get the "Distance from Sol".

I'm currently 50KLY from Sol, so can't just pop over to Sol and find out.

Is there any tools for finding out this info ?
Or is the only way to be sitting at Sol and just checking the Galaxy Map ?

Yes as far as I'm aware the only way is to be at Sol, which is where I'm at right now.

How many do you have to submit?

If you pm me the system names I will pm you back the distances when I get home from work at around 6.00 pm GMT/ game time.

Do you have the co-ordinates? If so it's easy to calculate. And unless you scanned them pre-Journal (2.2?), you have the co-ordinates somewhere - I think most people use Captain's Log or EDDI(?). Or anything that uploads to EDSM even.

You can also use a formula in Excel. This will give you accurate distances, depending on how accurate you enter the co-ordinates.

or

you can try out this site http://www.calculatorsoup.com/calculators/geometry-solids/distance-two-points.php
 
Yeah, the Journal was added in 2.2, but since 2.0 the game stores the coordinates of systems you've jumped into in the log files. If you have those, you can use third-party programs to look up coordinates, automatically calculate distances to Sol, and also to submit systems to EDSM, and with some, the Journal info from scans to EDDN too. Personally, I use EDDiscovery.
This comes up fairly frequently these days, so I think I'll make a FAQ.

OK, here are my next two contributions: two worlds originally flagged as being ELWs but not having enough data for a complete list entry. They are both missing from the current list.

For the first world, the gravity's a bit high and the air a bit thin, but at least the temperature is nice and warm, just 2 degrees above Earth average. It co-orbits a life-bearing gas giant, and the high orbit gives a pleasant view of the rings of the larger neighbour.

I mentioned the second world in my travelogue; the moon is nice, but the standout weirdness factor of this world is the 90 degree axial tilt, meaning that the entire planet is "above the arctic circle"; for a typical spot on the surface, summer might be a 250-day-long Midnight Sun, a brief few weeks of autumn, then a 250-day darkness-at-midday period. It would take some getting used to.

Hm, it looks like we have a problem here. These should have been on the "Errors" sheet, but apparently weren't. I'll have to check the earlier ones and see which might be missing as well. Thanks for the tip!
 
They are both still listed in the older version of the list; Prooe Hypue is on the "Missing SS" page, Flyooe Hypue is on the "Incomplete" page.
 
Here are couple of pretty mundane ones, but what is notable is that they are in a sector that previously had no submitted distances in EDSM...
