Well my alt is currently 36000ly south west of sol in virtually unexplored sections. This could be possible for me.
Nice! Make sure to add a screenshot of the system to show it off and be eligible for the prizes!I present to you Ausain DA-A d4 for your consideration! The 4th planet is a ringed Earth-like world in co-orbit with a gas giant. It has space-dwelling life in its rings, and a landable moon with a great view.
Great question! We're most interested in systems that have a lot going on - the idea is that the whole system should act as a tourist destination. The focus doesn't need to be on the ELW specifically, but we do require that the submitted systems have at least one.@Bruce G : is it the ELW itself that is more important than what else can be found in the system? For example, I could submit an ELW that orbits a ringed gas giant as its moon very close, on an inclined plane - but there isn't much else of interest in that system. Meanwhile, my first post here has plenty to visit in the system besides the Earth-like. Since we're allowed only one submission that will be considered, which is better: a system with a more rare ELW but not much else, or a system with a rare ELW but other stuff to see too?
Absolutely! Horizons/console entries will be judged equally along with Odyssey/PC ones.@Bruce G
Sorry if this is a dumb question, but seeing as Odyssey is only on PC, will you be considering Horizons images from consoles too even though the graphics quality won't be as good or if Odyssey itself changes the system in some way. I know that a few Horizons systems do look different in Odyssey.
No this isn't a dig at us console users not having Odyssey lol.
Not only does this system feature a rare triplet of earth like worlds, but the three planets orbit close enough to be mutually tidally locked, and all three skirt the lower limits of mass and temperature for Earth-like habitability. Inhabitants of the inner binary would see a blue-green marble appearing larger than Earth's moon hanging motionless in the sky. Meanwhile those living on the world that orbits those two would see two brilliant little blue beads juggling together in a never ending dance, their common center likewise fixed in the sky. There would be plenty of time for stargazing too, since thanks to the tidal lock, all three planets have days and nights that last for weeks. For those interested in exploration a 4th water world is also found here. Named "Al-Qūhī Oasis" after Abū Sahl al-Qūhī, a great mathematician and astronomer of 10th century Baghdad, who is said to have first developed an interest in parabolic arcs while juggling in the market.
Hello. o7Greetings 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:
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.
- 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
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!
