Depending on where you are there might be a permit locked region between you and Colonia, there are certainly from what I have heard some sparse areas as well, I think Colonia is the far side of a rift but I think that is further away from the bubble than 500ly.no I was planning on a trip to colonia but cant get my route to go over 450 ly
IIRC the maximum in economic is 1,000 not 10,000.I believe there are actually limits to how far you can plot.
I read somewhere that it is a maximum of 10,000 LY in economic mode, and 20,000 LY in fastest mode in the current version.
So it might just be if you switch to fastest mode it might be able to plot a way around the obstacle that's blocking you.
I'm not sure if this is true, it's just something I saw somewhere.
I rarely venture more than 100ly. I get homesick.
If anybody out there knows better feel free to contradict me.
