Good day and new update of this thread with screenshots from WP06 to WP09.
First, a nice view from the landing zone at WP6
The first ringed ammonia world I've found, just a bit outside of WP6 Nebula
A ringed "lava planet", I had never seen one before
The stunning view from WP7
A nice view from a moon orbiting a gas giant which is more than 3,100 Earth masses
A flawless ringed water world near WP8
Another lava planet. I so love these ones, can't wait to be able to land on them
A ringed gas giant with an unusual color scheme (for me, at least), roughly 2,000 Ly below the galactic plane
A small moon between WP8 and 9 so small you can see the curvature of the horizon
An Earth-like world near the galactic core. As it is my first time here, I must've lost 10-15 minutes contemplating the scenery, in awe. This is why I bought Elite in the first place: to explore and see the galaxy, even if it is in a game.
A ringed ammonia world, near WP9
The black hole inside the deject nebula neighbouring our landing system, WP9.
Same view, with my fat aspx
We're due to hit Sagittarius A* next week, which is one of the goals I had when I bought this game, a month and a half ago. In the end, I'll go far beyond my expectations and go to Beagle Point, and I won't regret a minute of it. Maybe exploration is not the most profitable of all jobs in Elite, but the sights you can behold certainly outweigh that.
Next update soon™
