Solar System and New Planet Discovery

Recommended Posts

We know a bit about how exploration at an interstellar level is planned to be, so this doesn't really concern the mechanics of exploration so much as how that information is propagated...

 

At some point, new planets and systems are going to have to make it into a galactic map for us, so this idea is more about how that would take place.

 

I propose that in order for a new system or planet to show up on the galactic map, that someone has to actually go out to that planet or system and collect information about it somehow (a mechanic that doesn't exist yet). Then they have to fly back to the Arkship (without dying and losing said scan results) and upload that scan into the Arkship so that everyone globally can have access to that information.

 

That way new planets and systems can remain somewhat secret to the discoverers, and it gives more value to those who are exploring deep space selling the location of planets and solar systems. But if someone goes out there they can choose to make it public by uploading that data to the Arkship for everyone to have access to.

English (deepl used)

 

However, this presupposes that the stars are also displayed correctly for the player position. Only then an unknown solar system with triangulation can be recognized. At the moment the "star wallpaper" simply moves with the Alioth sun.

German (original)

 

Das setzt aber voraus, dass die Sterne auch zur Spielerposition korrekt dargestellt werden. Erst dann ist ein unbekanntes Sonnensystem mit Triangulation zu erkennen.

Momentan wandert die "Sternentapete" einfach mit der Alioth-Sonne mit.

Sounds interesting and would push those that pick the exploration path of life to thoroughly  explore every planet and corner of each solar system for new discoveries and mysteries !

A great idea to promote explore spirit. Also i would like if more feature can be add:

- The one who first to upload the data can then choose the name of the planet (And of course it will be process and approve by the system (DEV) to prevent the unacceptable name ).

- Planet which dont have name should be set as ?????? planet and no specific information about it vaild until someone upload the information.

- The same set name should also applies to system too, i would like to see Bob's Haven system .

- The system/planet after upload should only prevail the common resource and left ?? ?? ?? ?? type of ore so that player will once have to venture into the planet to scan, if someone scan the exotic ore on the planet or the ore which not display with general scan whole planet, then they have ability to upload the information about that ore on the Ark Ship ... or keep secret for themselves.
