The Quest To Find Raxxla

Simulacrae is just funning. He likes to make maps etc around in-game topics. He caught me out when I first started playing; wasted several hours as I remember trying to decipher an Unknown Artefact illustration. Just enjoy his art!
They are just first letters... Diagonals. I saw MBs drabble and missed the old drabbles thread.. so i made an attempt at my own. Figured a lovecraftian/ raxxla themed one was in order.

There was a Drabbles thread? Bet there was one for Tribbles too?
Oh, so much meta-lore that I’ve missed out on over the years!
Or was that metal-ore?? 😗

Yes, my mind is free-wheeling. There’s only so much lawn cutting/power raking/hand raking/ scarification/hand-raking that a man can take. I was doing it all yesterday afternoon, and today.
Still got to finish scarifying/hand raking/recut before I can top-dress, level, over-seed and collapse in a heap with a beer or three. Now off to collect grandkids from school/nursery and babysit......

Aaaaggghh!!!

Edit: and got to go buy some sand for the top-dressing before I can do that...
Wonder how much artificial grass costs.......

Back on topic: Anybody know the history of Ithaca permit lock? EDSM has data about factions - was it always locked?

Ithaca, linked to Homers Odyssey, hence the interest...
 
I'm not actively looking for Raxxla in game anymore because I'm not convinced it's in the game or at the least it's not yet accessible and the fact that this thread alone has been going for 4 years and we're no closer to finding it but i still poke my head in here every now and then just to see how its going. I do admire the dedication, effort, time and belief of those that are certain it's out there somewhere and I hope the very next post is someone saying I've found it but I'm doubtful
 
actually i spent a long time searching nuentes, it is in a region of original systems that still have the elite 84 descriptions, and close to shinatra dezra. seeing as there have been rumours that the dark wheel was a fake faction, i noticed that nuentes description said something about ‘ this system harbours a dark secret’ then i saw that there was an outpost called ‘ harbouring’ sandwiched between 2 landable planets, so off i went have a search, nothing special found but the outpost has some containers inscribed, so maybe refers to some mycoid type stuff, or not you never know. but as raxxla was there before horizons i assume the link will be in space not on a planet surface
 
I could find no mentions of it being permit locked, so naturally I was curious :)

Contacted edsm here. https://forums.frontier.co.uk/threads/edsm-elite-dangerous-star-map.179063/page-114#post-8004292

PS: Sorry to disappoint @bigcee75 ;-)
I've re-posted your words on their discord..

[Edit]: they responded that they have removed the lock in the EDSM database. I've asked them what may have caused it. They're not sure but its being marked as PL from at least Nov. 2017..

Greetings Commanders,

I just played around with the "siren of the deepest void" part and thought about pulsars. (Regarding this article: Biggest neutron star ever detected)
So I searched GalMap for "PSR " (note the blank). I did not expect something spectacular to happen but..
The view zoomed waaaay down the galactic plane and .. pointed to "nothing". Strange. I tested the search again and .. the cursor jumped a bit further and for a split second, I could see a cluster of stars. All names starting with PSR. Then they vanished again. This can be repeated again and again. The cursor jumps from one star to the next. The whole cluster is visible for a split second. Then "nothing".
Has someone experienced this kind of "bug"? Or is there something hidden? Its not a single star, its a whole bunch of them there.
Try searching for "PSR ". Or scroll the GalMap to 9180, 10985, 6650
- Tested on PS4

I also had another look at the "old" systems too. I created an overlay of all original elite stars on the original starmap. (including those of map 3, 6 and 8) and hoped to see a shape or something interesting. Nothing special there. Then I placed the "tattoo" and the assigned numbers on top of that overlay (rotated). No match. So I gave up.
(I'll be back, old systems!!)

The search goes on. What do you think about the PSR "bug". Maybe FDev is hiding something? There IS a cluster of stars.

I believe Ghost Giraffe was placed there once by FD: https://elitepve.com/viewtopic.php?t=6779
Don't think FD is trying to hide the cluster, so more likely it's a bug.
