Must Sees In The Galaxy?

Postby damon8r351 » Thu Jul 27, 2017 11:29 pm

Any places in the galaxy you'd want to tell a budding explorer they just have to see? What's the Best of the Milky Way that I just have to go check out?

I've made an extensive exploration of the Seven Sisters in the Pleiades Nebula, been to a lot of the major Thargoid points of interest, been to W Ursae Majoris (not impressed), and have been kicking it around the Lave Cluster where it all began. Plan on looking into the Ancients ruins at a later date, and the major superpower home systems. Expeditions to Sag A*, Colonia, Beagle Point, and Wregoe TV-L C24-0 are in the planning stages.

Anything else I should check out? Famous or interesting star systems, interesting nebulae, interesting surface expeditions, anything like that? I'm open to anything and everything.

Rule 2: No such thing as overkill, as long as there are reloads.

There's some surface feature suggestions here https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthrea ... =Locations

I thought I had a favourite saved with a link to a spreadsheet that had all sorts of lists like generation ships, good canyons for racing, good views etc.. can't find it right now but will keep looking.

A self guided tour of some nebula is a nice way to try out some exploring without a huge commitment like Sag A or Colonia.

Also take a swing by sol.

Might be a no brainer but the devs have taken extra care there to make it seem close to what's actually out there.
So the planets in sol has more detail than any other system out there since its not from the cookie rng stuff.

About this image: are those names searchable with the system finder in-game? For instance, if I want to go to the California Nebula, will some point I can jump to show up on the map? Sorry I'm somewhat new at this.

You can just search for nebula names direct, like "California" or "coal sack" and it should move you the central position for it.

You can then just pick a star in the area and plot to it.

As you travel you may notice some star clusters worth visiting too. I came upon a big one on my way to Eta Cariane.
You can also look in real star and celestial objects catalogues, since these are in the game :)
A little trip to Betelgeuse is worth it for example, to have a look at a supergiant star, and it's only a small distance from the bubble.
The Mintaka system is also a well known one, with several black holes to fly by (and a pretty penny in exploration data)

I cant remember exactly which but there is a giant star somewhere in/close to the bubble where it has a landable planet very close. You are fuel scooping all the way down :lol:
