Finally made it to Alnilam( Epsilon Orionis ) And for me it was worth it. I think I figured out why I couldn’t jump straight there, Seems alot of stuff in Barnard’s loop are permit locked. My route would have been straight through there.
Anywho, Jumped 2000 ly to the left(Sol and Sag A to your back) to Flyua Dryoae ZN-J b26-0 or somewhere around there, I forget to log into EDSM to track it.
Parked my ship there for the night
Not a bad view before falling asleep
Woke up and decided to see if I could plot a course to Alnilam( Epsilon Orionis ), and finally I could, 45 jumps and Ill be there. So off I set
Cool water or Ammonia planet, Cant remember but Im leaning towards water
A heart attack coming out of hyperspace, When I come out of hyperspace Im always set up to go away from the star, When I came out of hyperspace all I saw was two giant stars on both sides, Luckily I split the middle with no damage.
Last star before Alnilam( Epsilon Orionis )
And finally I made it!!!
Thought I’d stop by the black hole, Kinda cool to see the light swirling around it.
It wanst what I was expecting but when I looked at the photo I could definitely see more of what was going on,
Next it was decision time, Head back or head out? I thought about heading back via Banards Loop, which is when I found out about the permit, So head further out it was.
I targeted Phroi Phoe AH-B d 14-8 2300ish ly away. And set off!
Found this awesome looking planet on the way,
After 52 jumps I made it to Phroi Phoe AH-B d 14-8. I found 2 land-able planets and figured Id go stretch my legs.
This planet was not land-able but looked damn cool.
The gas giant that planet and the other 2 are orbiting
Both land-able planets,
Decide to land on the smaller but more mineral rich orange planet. Got a pretty nice shot coming in for landing. If you look close enough you can see another planet also
Hell of a view from the surface, and its a great surface to drive on,
Great views from these 2 planets, So close and so cool
Parking for a bit,
Still undecided about my next move, 3000ly back to my home station. But why not go further out?
Exploring can be tedious and boring but its the cool stuff that makes it fun. Finding cool looking planets, close stars,and so many other awesome sights, makes it well worth it.
Quick question, How many systems can you hold before turning them in? Probably north of 150 right now.
