Greetings Commanders,

Explorers venture into the depths of space and discover beautiful systems that most will never see. We would like to offer you the opportunity to share your best discoveries and be immortalised in Elite Dangerous.

Our plan is to place approximately 50 additional Tourist Beacons throughout the Milky Way. Therefore, we’re running this competition in-line with this week’s exploration-based Community Goal.

To enter, reply to this post with an in-system (not System Map) screenshot of the most interesting unpopulated systems containing an Earth-like world you can find! When the Community Goal ends on 30 September, we’ll choose our favourites and add Tourist Beacons to those locations. Each beacon will feature the entrant’s Commander name in its text!

To qualify, submissions must:
  • Feature a screenshot of an unpopulated system in Elite Dangerous which contains an Earth-like world
  • Include your in-game Commander name
  • Include the name of the screenshotted system
Note: Only one submission will be accepted per player. If you submit multiple screenshots, the last one will be considered your only valid entry. Entries after 14:00 BST on 30 September will not be counted. We reserve the right not to include any Commander names in Tourist Beacon text that we deem inappropriate.

While the system must contain an Earth-like world, it doesn’t have to be the focus of the image. Try to show off as many features as you can which make the system interesting and a strong potential tourist destination!

All winning entries will receive 5,000 ARX in addition to the Tourist Beacon, so get exploring!

Good luck

Hi Bruce!
Please, clarify, does it mean the system with ELW should be first discovered over the CG period? What if I already have dozens of nice ELWs I discovered back in a time? Thanks.

Hi Bruce!

If you already have screenshots that meet the criteria, feel free to submit them! Bear in mind the clause about only one entry per player being eligible.

Here's my submission:

Name of the system: Thraikoo FL-P d5-97
In-game Commander name: CMDR Marx

Information: Situated near a planetary nebula out in the Vulcan Gate region, this system is abundant with various kinds of life. First, there is an Earth-like world (ABCD 1), lit by the four stars that it co-orbits, which is a rare phenomenon in itself. There is much more to this system, however: there are several bodies with various kinds of thin atmospheres, but ABCD 4 a stands out among them: it's a moon that houses 9 different kinds of species, with a carbon dioxide atmosphere. The planetary nebula is also close enough that explorers can find the rare bioluminescent Electricae Radialem in this system. Combined with the other landable planets, explorers who stop by here can find at least one species from 10 different genuses, out of the 15 that were known at the time of writing.

Screenshots: (thumbnails for easier browsing)
Shots from the other atmospheric planets with life:


The ELW on the system map and from orbit :



(I shot this with my alt character, hence why the first screenshot says "You have not yet mapped this planet.")

The final screenshot for the submission, to show a planet with plenty of life (you can see four kinds on the picture, the planet has nine):
