I'm sorry to say that they were earnt by cashing the carto in, not by scanning itself - same with bounties - killing ship=0 handing bounty is what gets you ARX

Big poke in the eye for long range explorers - can't beleive FD have been so short sighted to not realise that folk who go into the black for a month can earn max 400 ARX in that month (unless they sell the carto in dribs and drabs over the following weeks, preventing them returning to the black again). Very poor design.
Wow is this correct? Shouldn't this be brought up on the Arx thread...this is terrible and ultimately renders it a redundant element to us explorers.

The founder missions were never part of a quest for Raxxla.
So, a certain celestial body, you know what I am telling about, The Myth would not be Raxxla but.. a Guardian thing ? meh... Guardians never were any "myth".
If you read the mission texts in hindsight, the are most likely just a foreshadowing of the Guardians. Just like Halsey's visions.
That could of course be the same thing. We may just not have found the Guardian location that contains the Portal / Omphalos rift / Construct, we are looking for?
So ? Were E/F missions related to Raxxla or not ??
I don't think there has ever been any plans to make a quest for Raxxla.
Not a quest. Just a journey everyone has to take for himself. Or MB lied.
... it was only a few ly of the RR line.
A "few ly" out of a line that is thousands of Ly long.... And not even in EAFOTS..LoL !

from RAXXLA Codex:-

Several versions of the Raxxla story mention an alien artefact, the Omphalos Rift, described
as a gateway or tunnel through which parallel universes can be accessed. These details
however, were later shown to bear a striking resemblance to children's story Princess
Astrophel and Spiralling Stars, and soon lost credibility. Undaunted, some Raxxla
seekers insisted that the story's author had cunningly concealed facts about the
mysterious locale in his book as hints for those with eyes to see.

- this just jumped out at me as being odd, especially considering the text at the end:

FDev state it exists and they know why nobody has found it - because its locked behind an access permit perhaps?

I think the mission givers(NPC) thought they were on to Raxxla with the SAP8, crystal maps. In reality they seem to be very similar to Guardian technology.
From FD perspective the missions served a dual purpose of sparking interest in Raxxla and foreshadowing the Guardians. We will never know the full story, because the first Guardian ruin was discovered before the planed narrative had time to play out.
The E/F missions were cut when they no longer had a function in the narrative.

A journey can be anything. We always have to do them our self(unless mulicrew works). :)

Nah ... just jumped 5 M stars, then 3 NS, all Ms and 1 NS was 1st discovery by FSS, did FSS only along the way. Also did 1 time module repair. Gave me 4 arx it says.

I suspect it is in a permit locked system, one of the six in the bubble. And I think TDW grant the permit once their test has been successfully completed. Unfortunately we don’t know what that entails.

I suspect the SAP8 containers provide crystal maps (Guardian tech?), possibly to Soontill which may or may not be a Guardian homeworld or Arkship destination.

So, the E/F missions would have been replaced by the Guardians narrative, which, since that, is what should lead us to Raxxla ? Interesting theory, mein Herr. :)
A pity that the Guardians plot seems to be on stanby too...Or am I missing something new ?

Ofc a journey can be anything. I assume we threaders of The Boss' forum are mostly interested in the Raxxla related one. The one that MB was talking about.

Six ? Interesting. It matches with my "Six Bridges" Icon theory ! :unsure:
I would be surprised (or not) by the huge inconsistency if it turns out that TDW has access to Raxxla. o_O

Inconsistency? Perhaps, but the codex entry heavily stresses myth/unsupported/unreliable....
And who else but TDW would have these permits? (Unless it’s PF themselves).🙂

P.s. what was the reference for your six bridges theory? I’m suffering hypothesis overload. Still stuck trying to decipher MB’s tattoo features! (Though I think it’s unrelated to Raxxla).

There are at least a lot of parallels. Guardian places checks most, if not all the Raxxla boxes.

  • Ghost world, check
  • Alien construct, Yes and yes
  • Gateway to other Universes, if we count the Monolith network as another universe.
  • People on Raxxla already, check. The Club knew.
  • Realm of the Dead / underworld stuff, Check.
  • Crystalline tech and containment fields check.

The real Raxxla is probably not the standard stuff we have found to date, but I doubt it's totally unrelated.
 
New skins for those with eyes to see


Numbers are important
Arx is the substratum, the element and the first principle of existing things. From Arx began the turning of the Zodiac Wheel, Aether, Chaos, and the silvery cosmic egg (Cuboctahedron), orbited by a snake. The Lucifer device ultimately was an attempt to recreate this omphalos, and the birth of the First-Born, in a glorious display of power and thought.

Just a way to look at the Icon. Six green bridges/paths/ways to reach Raxxla. N,W,S,E, up and down,maybe. Depends on how you figure it out in 3D.
Did someone plot these six locked systems and look for the "center" of the figure they draw ?
 
How many kinds of different Guardian sites are there ?
Three types of ruins, at least three types of the bases with the device and the beacons in space. There are also variation within a single type. none of the look exactly the same, I think.

All of these sites are still functioning 1-2 million years after the Guardian wipe. I don't know if that means they were very well built of if the network has been maintained by the AI Constructs. The codex hints that the AI planed to survive the the wipe 'giving their own burgeoning society the best possible chance of survival'.

Three types of ruins...
Mmmmh.. Three types with device and beacon in space...
The Icon might match a Guardian ruin of these. Central point being the device and curved lines the beacons or the emissions of the network... Circle being the force field dome.
Also the dashed lines, in both the Icon and the sites, and the general shape of the ruins of "beta-type "seem to match. Imho.
I assume you Canonn biscuit eaters investigated this option, yes ?
