Anyone in route to Sagittarius A*

Postby b00st3d » Wed Jan 10, 2018 2:52 am

I'm running a passenger mission out to Myrielk QX-X c28-1093 which happens to be only ~170 Ly from SAG A*. I should be arriving tomorrow evening (January 10th).

The mission reward is 20m I'll be making more than that on selling data

Yeah, I love those kinds of missions. If you have high exploration rank and good rep, you'll make more on the fare. Currently, I'm getting about 1,000,000.00 cr./1000 ly for passenger missions. But yeah, the real money comes from exploration data.

On my last trip to Sag A* I made 200,000,000.00 cr. counting mission reward and exploration data.

Right now I'm doing a mission that will end up being about 36 kylies round trip with about 900 jumps. I think I'm a bit better at exploration these days (finding candidates for terraforming, etc.).

It will be interesting to see what I make on data this time.

So I'm doing pretty well with this mission then. I'm based out of Colonia so it's only 11K Ly out to SAG A* or around 22K Ly round trip.

I think I'm a lazy explorer. I only ever scan Neutron stars and worlds that look like they could be valuable. I've got a 7A fuel scoop so I'm typically in system for less than a minute. I think I made 60m on my last trip to SAG A* There was no mission on that one, just me wanting to go.

Started in Rhea....visited Great Annihilator and am wandering my way towards Sag A*. 191 million in data so far.... avoiding neutrons as they are cherry picked where I am right now and concentrating on other types.Will definitely need a new paint job on my ASPX when I get back.

Nice, I started in Ratraii, flew out to some huge 2.8g planet for a passenger mission, then over to SAG A* which was only 100 ly or so. From there, I crashed into the great annihilator since it was the first smaller black hole I had seen(smaller than Sag A*) and didn't realize it drops you a couple Mm from the black hole. After that excitement, I made my way back to colonia with several first scans on black holes along the way.

I'm currently about 3/4 of the way back to the bubble to finally engineer my FSD. I just want to get over 45 Ly jump range on the conda.
