Don't worry, nobody wants to do that.

Coming in to land on DSSA The Lemon Drop.

Data sold, and hull repaired.

Where next: Sagittarius A*, or Beagle Point?

Pass through Saggy Tits on the way to Beagle. It's worth quite a bit of data bounty. Before everything became a cash avalanche I got 250k for it. That's when water worlds were worth 10k.

Just in case anybody hasn't seen the map of explored space so far: https://www.reddit.com/r/eliteexplorers ... tems_from/

Warning, it's an hooj image. Quite sad to see most of the funny logos and insignias people had etched all over have been swallowed.

I'm 5k LY from there, and 40k LY from Beagle so might do that, then speed back via Colonia

I got 128 million (less 25% fees) for 350ish jumps, so about 370k a jump. At least my name is on some planets nobody will ever see.

Disappointing lack of speed cocks, but kudos to whomever ran around the edge

Ah, no it wasn't, just three circles. An older one: https://i.imgur.com/puMdpIK.png

Quite a few zodiac signs around.

In the sort of free thinking that plagues online games, a bunch of players managed to trick other players into going to deep space to farm rare items, and then made them work their debt off.

you passenger's occasionally ask for extras? Is it possible to sell them into slavery?

I got the bank balance up to 110million and then popped back into my Asp Explorer. It'll jump 42 light years, so that's about 630 jumps to get to Saggitarious A star black hole. I'm learning to scan the systems and planets on the way. It's very quiet and lonely out in the black (I'm only 200 LY away from home right now). I have my whip in the cargo hold for some surface driving, too.

See you in 50k LY.

I am currently 24,105LY from Sol and 7,648LY from Colonia.

This has been a long trip, albeit with some downtime.

empty space. Colonia is quite dull, too.

Just flown back to the bubble, hopped Type 9 freighter ship and moved 720 tonnes of gold one jump for 4 million profit. This is a lot more profitable than exploration
