[Elite Dangerous] Exploration Stream #10 – The Rush to Gagarin Gate!

Elite Dangerous Exploration Stream #10 is on youtube now – this turned out to be a double-length episode (I just decided to keep going 🙂 ) in which we ended up at Gagarin Gate, the next refuelling station on the way to Colonia. I thought this was pretty impressive given that the trip from Eagle Landing to Sac Space Port took about four weeks, while the trip from Sac Space Port to Gagarin Gate only took 11 days!

On the way we stopped off at a couple of Carbon stars and black holes, and boosted from a lot of neutron stars. At one point I found myself in a very nice close double star system (fortunately I didn’t end up being roasted between the stars on arrival) and got some nice screenshots there!

[Elite Dangerous] – Mining adventures (Intermission)

Before I headed out on my Great Expedition to Colonia and beyond (I’ll be uploading the logs later on), I bought myself a Python and did a bit of mining. Here are some of the highlight from that escapade – it was actually kinda fun, though not exactly a huge money-maker for me.

Elite Dangerous Streaming Update

I’ve settled on a streaming schedule and updated my Twitch page – streams are now happening every Tuesday at 6pm-8pm PST and every Saturday at 10am-12pm PST (which is 6pm-8pm UK time).

This evening’s stream is now available on my youtube channel if you missed it, along with all my other streams and highlights! In this episode we visit a supernova remnant containing a neutron star, and elsewhere we find an unexpected Ammonia World!

[Elite Dangerous] Expedition #3 (part 2) – Pleiades – Alien Ruins

Here’s Part 2 of my expedition to NGC 7822 – continuing on to the Pleiades and to take a look at the Guardian ruins!

[Elite Dangerous] Expedition #3 (part 1) – NGC 7822 – HD 19419 – California Nebula

My third expedition was a rather roundabout trip that started off as an investigation of the NGC 7822 nebula (an interesting line of stars that are visible from the vicinity of the North American Nebula). I ended up seeing a little more than that though…! (January 3303)

Don’t forget – exploration continues on my Twitch channel every Tuesday evening from 6-8pm PST!

[Elite Dangerous] Expedition #2 – Antares.

My second expedition was to the supergiant star Antares. I’d been there before in my Cobra Mk III when ED was first released, but I didn’t have an Advanced Discovery Scanner then and it was harder to plot a route to because the plotting distance limit was about 100 ly. This time around I was better prepared, heading out in a new Keelback with an ADS and fighter bay!

Exploration continues on my twitch channel on my Twitch channel every Tuesday evening from 6-8pm PST!

[Elite Dangerous] Expedition #1 – Alpha Cygni and the Sadr Nebula.

I’ll be posting my Elite Dangerous Exploration Galleries here so I can have them somewhere safely archived (and more accessible than Facebook or G+). So here’s my first proper exploration trip to Deneb and the Sadr Nebula in my Asp Explorer! (December 3302).

If you want to watch my continuing exploration of the Galaxy, don’t forget to tune in to my exploration streams on https://www.twitch.tv/evildrganymede every Tuesday evenings from 6-8pm PST!

[Elite Dangerous] First Stream is now online!

And now for something completely different – I have started streaming! I now have my very own Twitch page at https://www.twitch.tv/evildrganymede and I’ll be streaming Elite Dangerous there on a semi-regular basis (check the twitch page or my twitter for updates)!

I’ve already finished my first stream this evening, and you can now see the whole thing on youtube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i94h6R1x8wk . Highlights include a few neutron star boosts, finding a moon that orbited very close to the edge of its gas giant primary’s ring system, and a big landable icy planet. Plus an explanation about how planetary rings work, and a few rants about the inaccuracies of Elite Dangerous :).
