Noodling through a network of w-space

Monday, January 14th, 2013

Still all quiet at home. So lonely. One extra signature to keep me warm. Maybe it leads to new friends. Maybe! It resolves to be a wormhole, a K162 from class 3 w-space. And jumping through the wormhole has a Badger light up my directional scanner. There's a tower visible ...

Scanning the spectrum

Wednesday, November 30th, 2011

It's time to see what's out there today. And it will have to be 'there' because here at home it all looks the same as yesterday. Scanning probes tell a slightly different tale, with a few new signatures cropping up. Although I'm expecting a new static wormhole, there is also ...

Exploring through a confusing constellation

Saturday, August 20th, 2011

Ah, sweet pulsar home of mine. What better way to celebrate my return than scanning an exit? And whilst I am scanning the home w-space system for the first time in a while I can start easy-mode mining too. There are a bunch of gravimetric and ladar sites cluttering up ...

Nidhoggurs and Naglfars

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

I'm back, and in a stealth bomber. A well-connected w-space constellation must make for ripe hunting grounds, and we have eight systems to roam today. I say 'we' but it is still just me. I'll just have to see what kind of havoc I can wreak by myself for now. ...

Separated scanning

Thursday, May 26th, 2011

From home, to class 3 w-space, to low-sec empire space. The current constellation is mapped and bookmarks are available, which I copy and head out to check for any activity and maybe new connections. Jumping in to our neighbouring system sees someone definitely around, as there is a pod visible ...

Stealth bomber scanning

Thursday, April 28th, 2011

There's plenty to explore today, judging by the number of bookmarks stuffed in to our shared can. No one else is around at the moment, so I jump in to my Manticore stealth bomber to take a solo roam around our w-space constellation. Our neighbouring class 3 system has been ...

Scanning high-sec for wormholes

Wednesday, November 17th, 2010

It's time to start looking for a new w-space home. I haven't scanned my way in to w-space from empire space before, only looking for exits previously. Finding one specific system via randomly spawning and connected wormholes is a lesson in futility, which is why I never tried finding my ...

Scary ships and stealing scanners

Saturday, July 3rd, 2010

We only have two systems to explore currently, I am told. Our static connection leads in to a class 4 system as usual, but that system's static wormhole is at the end of its natural life and prevents us looking further afield for action or an exit. I ...
