I tend to agree that Raxxla is likely to be accessible through normal game mechanisms available since the gamma release, however with the proviso that Raxxla is the biggest Easter Egg in the game so I think it’s quite possible that FD could have put extra effort into that from the outset. We don’t know anything about it so we don’t know what they did relating to it!I still insist on 1 postulate, "nobody will do extra programming just to hide raxxla", which means any idea must fit/use already existing game play parts (oldest ones). Which u should see in everyday play. Example, if u can't enter BH in everyday play then raxxla will not be hidden inside BH.
True, but DB did say it’s been in-game since the gamma, which sort of implies it’s accessible. I just can’t see him putting it into the game without it being accessible. It might be hidden behind a permit lock but if so I think there’s also been a mechanism available since the gamma to get that permit.Source please.
To the best of my knowledge, there has never ever been anything which stated that Raxxla was accessible.
A common hypothesis from the early days of this Quest is that Raxxla (or its system) isn‘t visible in the galmap (easy for Pilots’ Federation (i.e. FD) to delete it) and it must be manually selected from the list of nearby systems in the navigation panel to be able to jump to it. The trouble is that it is very tedious in each system to go through that list selecting each system, then checking it against the galmap. I think I withstood it for half an hour. It also allows for happenstance location & I think DB would have wanted a more focussed treasure hunt mechanism to find it. I think that’s the message of the codex entry. First gain the trust of The Real Dark Wheel, then you might get nearer to Raxxla. I suspect there’s a series of hoops for us to jump through, but the first part has few clues & we won’t know we’re taking the test until we’re told we’ve passed it.[thin foil thinking] What if Raxxla is only reachable when you select the system manually, never when you plot a route from let say from Sol to Delphi ? [/thin foil thinking]
You can never travel pass the Raxxla system with plotting a more then one jumping route .
My Thin foil hat thinking that the Raxxla system is excluded from plotting..
Call me a traditionalist, but I think assuming something was meant by something when it wasn’t actually specifically said, is slightly different to it actually being said, and needs to be treated accordingly!True, but DB did say it’s been in-game since the gamma, which sort of implies it’s accessible. I just can’t see him putting it into the game without it being accessible. It might be hidden behind a permit lock but if so I think there’s also been a mechanism available since the gamma to get that permit.
However I also have a vague feeling that one of DB’s utterances was that he was surprised it hadn’t already been found. I have googled this but can’t find the source for it, and may have imagined it, though lots of the old forum stuff seems now to be inaccessible. Might have been in a livestream? If he did say that then it would confirm it’s accessible!
@Jorki Rasalas some vids for reference:...Snip...
But on the other point about the DB quote, if it’s the one that was along the lines of ‘I’m surprised that no one’s found what’s one of the biggest things in game’ that was from a stream from around the time of the 2.4 announcement and one of the 2.3.x updates. Might have been from an event. The DB bit was a pre-recorded bit IIRC.
In one of the other trailers from around the same time was the overhead shot of some SRVs approaching some sort of cave or structure and then a Thargoid appearing above them. It was speculated at the time that that was what DB was referring to. In retrospect it could also have been the crashed Thargoid scouts. There’s also the (slight) possibility that it was Jameson’s Cobra and the INRA bases - they were only found after they were featured in a content teaser trailer which was released between some 2.4.x updates. They may have only just been added in one of the preceeding 2.4 updates, but who knows, they might have just featured in the teaser as they’d been there for a while but not found.
With daydreams like that I would forgo NetFlix...On a bit less scientific note, I had this day-dream about Ms. Fields again. She was walking inside a never-ending, artificial cityscape of a Coriolis spacestation for some reason, around the upper low-sec sector. Hiding her bright red hair among common spacejunkies and freebooters, to us she would seem just like another cyber-addict or a techpunk. Purple-haired heroes gathering in anarchy bars for another cycle of drinking Leestian evil juice all day and blowing up unwary traders all night. She wouldn't mind doing the same for a while, keeping it low and spending some credits from the last contract. In her business credits soon lost meaning, as one error could end it all quickly. Accumulated cybernetic memory from dozens of generations did help a little, creeping suspicion of a subconscious hivemind guiding her actions would ease in the bar. She had lost her ship, Viper III class fighter in assassination of some Federal military conglomerate executive, this happened sometimes, it could even be useful. This time the situation was less desirable, as if the holofac from last night was correct, The Blackmount are already taking over secure comms in the sector, and she needed some naive spacer to smuggle her out fast...
I think these sort of things happen to her fairly often.
And here begins the re-interpretation which happens a lot in hoaxes... maybe its this, maybe its that instead. Mathmoss instructions are still up in one of the videos and there doesn't seem to have any ambiguity. If its not there then perhaps there simply never was.Hmm ... I feel like i'm in wrong one. There is another in Acheron. Contains 1 M and like 30-40 Y/T. And matches to his post acutaly, he said fly top from deep void, There is sector "Abyss" which means deep void. But it seems i will have to use jumponium to get there alot.
If memory serves me right, pre-FSS ADS worked like that. You had to travel to the objects to have them scanned.Okey....
2 ships passed. It's inside cluster. How is it possibly he touched 1 star only? Or I just misss another yet?
