Brilliant work! I'll add it to the front page!
Hello Bigbangtheory, welcome to the threadI've just taken time out to have a go at searching for the Guardian Homeworld if nothing else to learn the new exploration tools with a purpose.
At the risk of over simplification is it not a fair to say that Guardian site presence/locations would be a good indicator as to where in the sector the homeworld might be? If you think of say future earth colonisation and expansion Sol would not necessarily be in the centre of everything but it would be the centre of a local bubble of activity and population.
One question I had which I didn't quite follow.... Why might the star of the Guardian Homeworld system be a class A or B as opposed to M?
Looks amazing! (edit: I'll pop some of these new ones on the front page very soon)New depiction of the Guardian race. Hope to see more things in the game related to them in the future. Even if they seem extinct millions years ago it will be awesome to find some bunch of survivors and some AI construct.
This is a real-life cluster of stars, one of many that FD brought into the game via several star catalogues (primarily the Hipparcos and Gliese catalogues but some others). The reason they are stretched out like that is because the errors in the distance measurements are greater than the errors in Right Ascension and Declination (their position on the sky).
