Another day with not much to report except for another waypoint reached – Waypoint 12.
Last night I stopped one jump short of Six Rings, at Myriesly RY-S e3-5414, to savour the sights of this system for a new day.
On arrival, I was presented with a very pretty class B blue-white star, which takes the total number of stars in this system up to 7, albeit the other six being T Tauri protostars.
After that, I continued past Waypoint 11 and onwards to Sagittarius A*.
Having finally fixed my flight controls to use a proper throttle and stick rather than the hacked together controls I was using connected directly to my flight computer bypassing the controls I’ve previously neglected to add to my ship during purchase.
Not much to report here, other than hearing more Thargoids in Phroi Flyuae SO-T b22-60, as previously mentioned in a previous log, and I reached Waypoint 8!
Note to self: don’t start moving towards a star before starting opening the system map – it’s not then possible to slow down or stop before… colliding… with said star until the system map has opened.
With Waypoint 7 reached and Waypoint 8 plotted, I spotted a nearby system worth a detour to – a system reporting itself as containing a Wolf-Rayet C star.
On arrival, I found that not only was this system holding a beautifully-purple WR-C, but it was also hiding a Class O star!
One of the things that you may have noticed recently on the Elite: Dangerous posts on this site is the little statistics panels at the bottom of posts – this post is about those:
They are generated by a custom extension to the WordPress theme that I’m currently using, backed by a MySQL database. The database schema I’m using can be found here for those interested.
After a minor incident where I decided to fly into a planet, today hasn’t been particularly exciting.
The only news of note to report is that I appear to have overtaken CMDR Braxton Doyle, as at the current time, the CMDR hasn’t plotted Waypoint 7 yet, so I’ve taken the initiative and plotted that now too. Whether or not he’ll follow me to my first via, I don’t know.
