Sag A*. Finally.

Postby HAMM3R » Fri Mar 04, 2016 10:10 am

Call me a happy camper, finally made my way to Sagittarius A*!

Now I should decide whether to head back home or just keep on going. Ship is still in good shape so I could continue exploring but I ran out of brandy. Tricky situation :D

Scooping fuel is very much like making love to a beautiful woman. First check the target is hot enough,
then approach slowly. Once close enough, pull out your scoop and fill her up. After you're done just
gently pull away, turn around and leave.

Gz! I've done the same trip in 2 weeks last summer (+2 weeks to get back).

How long have you been out there? Post more screenshots of interesting finds :)

I left May, last year, haha!

But there's been some months in-between I haven't played ED at all. Also, I took a left from Eagle Nebula and swooped my way into the core area, sort of following one of the arms, going up and down while searching for something interesting to pop up.

Thanks, Xeb!

Golem, I actually found a similar area, littered with neutron stars, BH's, white dwarfs, carbon stars and what not.
