Is that the top of Mercedes Benz Stadium killing people?

Fuck that.  That's not even in the top 100 of things the game needs.

Walking in stations worked so well though.

Just rolled up a 53.5% FSD mod with an extra 2% fuel use bonus. All set for galactic exploration again.

However I have too much fun dicking around in my maxed-out, engineered Cobra MkIII with a flames paint job and ship ID "FUN". I have taken on a few Thargoids in it (and run away when they start to hurt me) and visited various POIs like capital ships and megaships. It's a good low-risk ship for doing everything in Open too.

I wish the Thargoids were really invading and the galaxy was in crisis. After tangling with them briefly I went back to farming engineering materials. Ready for the next phase now.

Easiest way I found them was system Asterope near Maia. Find an unknown signal source that resolves as Non-human Threat Level 5.

Useful links.

As I'm currently in the Witch Head Nebula, here's a list of 141 nebulae, visible or reachable from the bubble. Bonus list of 32 other galaxies visible in the sky.

Colonia info database. Even if you're never going there, this describes pretty well WHAT it is.

Has there been an optimised route for getting there posted somewhere ?

You can now plot routes up to 20,000 ly so the galaxy map itself should provide an optimised route. However, if you want lots of discoveries to your name along the way, you want the opposite of an optimised route :)

You can also plot a "neutron highway" route using neutron stars to boost your jump range. I've never tried that, so I'd learn from a YouTube video first. On a ship with a 50 ly jump range, a full trip using neutron stars would be as few as 140 jumps, but it's slower and riskier to set up each jump. Using regular everyday hyperspace you're up for 400 jumps (can also reduce this with FSD boosts via crafting).

But if I was going there again (argh), I would want to see the unique Caravanserai station and whatever else is good on the route.

Space ports along the way: (recently added)
Rohini (Eudaemon Anchorage)
Gandharvi (Caravanserai)
Kashyapa (Vihara Gate)

Surface bases: (why? I'd rather use space ports)
Blu Thua AI-A c14-10 (Hillary Depot)
Lagoon Sector NI-S b4-10 (Amundsen Terminal)
Eagle Sector IR-W d1-117 (Eagle's Landing)
Skaudai CH-B d14-34 (Sacaqawea Space Port)
Gru Hypue KS-T d3-31 (Gagarin Gate)
Boewnst KS-S c20-959 (Polo Harbour)

I'm a fan of the space between, not the destination. Here is a reply I posted on Reddit to someone who asked "what is going on in Colonia?"

Quote
Not much, really. Functionally it is a smaller, lower-populated alternative to "the bubble", 21,000 ly away from Sol, with AI minor factions named for real player groups. That makes it both impractical to visit regularly, and impractical to inhabit full-time.

The lore is that a cyborg bartender called Jacques put a FSD on his station and jumped it there and got stuck, kicking off the settlement of that area of space. It's a good hub for explorers and alt accounts. Not all ship modules are available, and there are only occasionally Community Goals there.

But it's cool. And space out there has a LOT more stars.

Interesting, I knew they'd increased the plotting, of course, I just didn't appreciate they improved it that much...
