Hyponia mission 2.0 (update 5)
The first circumnavigation is complete. This means that the border of the Hyponia Permit locked sector at the Galactic Plane has now been mapped. Circumnavigation at the +150 Ly level has commenced.
With the data gathered so far it is possible to update the systems furthest north, east, south and west of Hyponia:
HYPONIA YV-S B47-16Northernmost...
Hyponia mission 2.0 (update 4)
I have started the circumnavigation of the Hyponia Permit Locked Zone on the Galactic Plane. I am now almost halve-way; I am pleased with the progress I made.
I encountered right after the start today a system of which my Universal Cartographic module reported that it had been First Discovered by one of the original mission members. This seems to indicate that the original mission has been aborted...
Hyponia mission 2.0 (update 3)
Having heard no response until now from the original Hyponia Horizon Mission members I herewith enroll myself on the
Hyponia Horizon Mission.
My main role in this mission will be to map the systems in the border region.
Since my exploration trip started in Colonia, investigation of the Hyponia sector will start on the east of that sector.
HYPONIA ZD-L B24-51Easternmost...
Hyponia mission 2.0 (update 2)
I'm now halfway through The Fallows between The Anthor Patch and Hyponia.
I hardly stop now for system scans anymore. I want to reach Hyponia to properly determine its boundaries.
Hyponia mission 2.0 (update 1)
I mad a slow start to get a feel for the Adder as exploration ship. It is quite a good ship, but in the end I think the T6 will be slightly better. This is partly due to the slightly shorter fuel scoop time in the T6 and the ability to carry a Auto Field Maintenance Unit; I have crashed into suns twice now, and with the current load-out I am not able to repair the damage: I will have to learn to be...
Hyponia mission 2.0
Well, I think I like exploration around here :)
I took a break because I got word that materials were needed around Colonia. The demand for better outfitting is increasing and better outfitting requires proper resources, because without resources no production. So I went back to help mine these resources.
After that I changed ship, the T6 is a great miner, but it feels a bit big... Maybe...
Out and about
Even though Colonia has not much to offer in the way of outfitting I have managed (with advice from a seasoned explorer from the Rock Rats) to outfit my T6 for Exploration: Meet the T6 Colonia Ocean...
I'll be out and about for the coming time to see if exploration is something that I like.
Rocks, rocks, rocks, ...
I have seen enough of them for now :unsure: ...
Although interesting at first, prospecting gets quite repetitive rather quick. Especially if you know that a certain ring should give another rare material, but no matter how much rocks you crunch, it won't give it :angry:.
I did make quite some money while prospecting by gathering metal and minerals, enough to properly outfit the T-6 Transporter...
New Job: Prospector
I have a new job! I am now a prospector for the Rock Research Ring.
How does it work? Well basically you fly into asteroid belts and planetary rings and determine what materials can be gathered there. I was drawn to this job by reading the local bulletin board at Jaques Station. The job does not pay well, but you are allowed to sell all materials mined during the prospecting operation, and that...
I'm now mining outside the resource extraction sites.
There's a lot less pirates over there, but I don't know whether I can find the good stuff there
