The Planetary Circumnavigation Club





Having just completed my own circumnavigation of a small moon in an SRV I decided to do a little bit of research and have come across enough other people crazy enough to perform this right of passage that I thought I'd create a new thread to celebrate their achievements.

If you too have driven around an entire planet/moon in an SRV and wish to be added to this exclusive list (or are aware of someone else who deserves to be included) then post the details of the circumnavigation in this thread (I'm afraid some form of proof of your achievement will be required whether that be a video, a detailed account or a testimony from one or more other trusted individuals).

Note: club members who are registered with EDSM will unlock an exclusive Planetary Circumnavigation Club badge.

Hints and tips for planetary circumnavigators.

1) Aim your SRV's weapons at the heading you want to follow (for example, 90°) and then open the right hand Modules panel and turn off the Duel Repeaters. The targetting reticule will now remain fixed on that heading thereby giving you an easy to follow compass bearing right there on the HUD. (note: it seems likely that Frontier will be "fixing" this in Q4 so that this technique no longer works!) "fixed" - gee, thanks a bunch FD!

2) Primetime Casual's excellent video guide on how to "flive" up a very steep incline.
3) Alec Turner demonstrates a nifty way of using your own ship to get the SRV out of a tight spot.
4) SushiCW demonstrates how to drive an SRV into a stable low-altitude orbit.

Further Q&A from video comments:
Q) how do you go about keeping your orbital path so close to passing a surface spot like Farseer? I guess there's just a lot of careful directional course adjustment that we're not seeing in the video?
A) I started a quarter of the way around the planet, set Farseer as the target, and tried to aim for it as much as possible. Got pretty close, although not as close as I'd hoped.

Q) how long did the whole process take? (i.e. how long a gaming session would I need to set aside time for to be able to do this? ... oh, and also, what happens if you log out once you're in stable orbit? where are you and what's your situation when you log back in)
A) It was about 25-30 minutes to get to the point where I could stay up indefinitely. Close to another hour before I had the orbit perfected and could just walk away. Each orbit took 55 minutes or so... something around that, anyway. Eventually I turned off modules, gave myself some premium fuel, and just walked away for a few hours to rack up those SRV distance travelled stats. :)
So I'd say you'd want to set aside a couple of hours, at least.
If you log out, you lose all momentum (but not altitude) and fall straight down. Easy enough to deal with.

Q) how do you get back down?
A) The easy (but boring) way is to log out. Or, do a bunch of video processing in the background until the game hiccups and deposits you unceremoniously on the surface (which is what happened to me this time around). The last time I did this, without Shadowplay working, I did the whole process in reverse. Point backwards and tilt-boost, but very slowly/gently at first to avoid vertical speed going out of control. And then bounce to a halt, reverse-thrusting between bounces to shed as much momentum as possible. The whole process took another hour.

Handy tools for planetary circumnavigators.

E.D.I.S.O.N - excellent little utility by Maxine Slayton which lets you input planetary co-ordinates and which will then use text to speach and/or a graphic overlay to direct you to those co-ordinates with a combination of bearing and range.
Here's an example of the HUD overlay.

Waypoint Creator - an Excel sheet by Robert Maynard which allows you to create an arbitrary number of waypoints on a great circle. See also "StatusDisplay" below.

StatusDisplay - a surface navigation assistant by Robery Maynard which "assists in real-time bearing / distance to destination co-ordinates and can also record the player's session". Among other things this lets you produce really cool maps of your travels.
This is Dav's Hope.

MapToGlobe - If you want to create a 3D interactive map of the globe you're planning to circumnavigate then this is a really cool utility which can be used to do so. When you start your map select Images, pick "choose a file" for the Surface and upload a copy of a blank coordinate grid which you can download from here: Globe Grid
(note: all the coordinates are reversed on that image - my bad - ED coordinates go up and then across, not the other way around). In order to add waypoints and things to your map just edit a copy of that blank image, adding text and graphics as you fancy, then re-upload it as the new Surface image.



Handy list of small planets & moons courtesy of CapitanAceR.

There is a list of small planets on this forumn page:

It is a list created by a member called Veronica

Here's a few more I found whilst interrogating the EDDB bodies database:

Interesting thread. Im planning on doing my SRV circumnavigation at some point at DECE, possibly with few other cmdrs who are as crazy as me. :)
Will post info as soon as i have it.
 
Only addendum I have: EOL PROU IW-W E1-336 2A is totally officially named "Tannik's Tater". I'm sure Frontier is going to make that official any day now.

Meanwhile... let's get more people into the club! It's a ton of fun and (once you get the hang of long-distance SRV travel) not even that hard.

Whatever you say! :p

Actually that was partly the reason for creating this thread. I was thinking that perhaps, in the same way that the Sagittarius A* visitors list probably inspired a whole load of people to give that a go that perhaps the existence of this list might do the same.

I'm no graphic designer but I was wondering about trying to create a logo for this club, something like a little SRV icon driving around a tiny planet. Perhaps inspired by the Little Prince?

First run is over 70 m/s if I did my math right. In an SRV? Seems sketchy. If your wheels aren't on the ground most of the time, you're unnecessarily cutting corners as to the intent of 'in an SRV'! :p

(Unless you managed to reach orbit and are doing in that way, in which case all's fair...)
 
Excellent thread! There seems to be a smudge on the official documentation of my circumnavigation and it's riddled with asterisks. My source video is nowhere to be found so all I have to go by is the first time the clock is shown in my edited youtube video (4:26). The title of that clip of the video in my Adobe Premier project has the timestamp from Nvidia share as 4:30 oddly. All the other video captures are also offset by about 4 minutes from their actual start time as well so it would seem that the beginning of that first clip of my video is approximately the beginning of the source clip. Taking into account nvidia share creates a new video clip about every 11 minutes, and judging by the speed I was going at the beginning of that clip, I would guess that I would have captured 1-3 clips before that, giving me a start time somewhere between 3:53 and 4:15.

Due to my incredibly lucky bounce which sent my floating around 2/3 of the planet, my path around the planet became kind of a wobbly loop, then I had to back track to get back to my original starting spot at the north pole. But anyway, I consider that point to be the finishing time, and that was 5:24. So that puts my total time somewhere in the neighborhood of 1hr 30m to 1hr 10m.

I wish I hadn't deleted the source videos. I purge my capture folder every now and then to save space.

From SushiCW's video description - "Average Speed: 75 m/s | 169 mph | 271 kph"

I've seen Sushi flive. I have no problem believing that whatsoever. [yesnod]
 
Now we wait until someone attempts this on CHROABS TI-S d4-58 4.



4.03G.
24.404km radius(!).
That would be 153.334km.

Anyone?

People like Tannik or Brabston seem sketchy to me when they go *under* 70 m/s. :p
As for "cutting corners", as far as unofficial rules are concerned, even when wheels are detached enough from the ground to accidentally attain escape velocity you are still sitting 'in an SRV', so....:p

Let's see...

- Pay a visit to Hutton Orbital, for no reason in particular
- Reach Sag A* in a most unfitting ship
- Circumnavigate a planet in an SRV

Now here's a thing I've had on my bucket list for a while...I'll let you know as soon as I find a baked potato worth the undertaking...and the time for it too!
