So I just now noticed this...

I can provide Web hosting space for this. Let me know how much space/bandwidth this is taking and I'll set you up. This doesn't belong on an ad-/malware-laden free service.

(I don't pay too much attention to this forum, obviously, so bother me on IRC if I don't respond here)
I'll gladly accept your proposition! The current total weight is 65 megabytes. Not sure about bandwidth, but it's unlikely to be too much. I can send you the archived site contents any time, just tell me when.

After brief technical problems, I can officially announce this. Thanks to Selbio, the project now has a new, safe hosting place, one with no ads and no malware trying to sneak into your system. The new address is:


If you were scared off by the earlier suspicions of malware attacks, now there's no reason to fear anymore!

Also, on my request, neuzd made a change to the way sector surveys are displayed. In case there was more than one survey for a sector, they should be easily discernable. The project is now in process of updating, but everything should be working in two hours or so.

That's weird. I went to Felysia, and discovered I could click on a few places on the map (it would be nice if you could highlight the clickable parts, maybe only when you mouse-over or something). I clicked on point 170, 29 (little 2x2 yellow patch, just to the left of top-centre) and I went to a page with three broken picture links. When I instead chose the location from the list, I got a load of pictures with a green forest, nice hills and a huge chasm. Something isn't working.

I really don't remember right now how things are coded.

I suppose I sometimes changed part of the earlier code with a more robust version, but forgot to adapt the map links.

As you can see the Felysia map is the only one present, and also it's not the correct one (of course that's from NICE).
Obtaining those kind of maps is not possible in NIV, so I think I was going to trash the sector selection from the map but actually never did so.

Sorry everyone (and Serpens in particular), maybe tomorrow I'll fix that.

Ha ha, I managed to do it when it was still "today".
You have to wait for Serpens to upload the fix, though : P

Don't worry, Serpens is on guard. The bugfix is uploaded and I can confirm that it works. Thanks to Albeyamakiir for spotting the bug!

Sector 13.58 on Felysia is now uploaded. It was sent in by Mingamango181.

Quasi-edit: two more sectors on Felysia by Mingamango are now uploaded, namely: 78:54 and 7.101.

Surprise! New content! Today's update features the exploits of everyone's favourite stardrifter (Skinnymon) on everyone's favourite planet (Suricrasia)! It mostly deals with revisiting sectors which already had ancient GOES comments. And ruins! As usual, each sector report has detailed and extensive notes. Here's a list:

Suricrasia: sectors 38.62; 46.102; 186.58; 219.78; 263.24; 285.63; 313.35; 337.42; 347.43; 359.44

Perhaps making some contributions here would be a good way to get back into Noctis!

I have just uploaded some new content, sent in by Mingamango181. To be precise, there are two new sectors, namely:

Fal Frychufal: 356.53

Abseryalis: 347.49

The latter one is also the first Home Systems Project survey for Abseryalis. Take a look!

The exploration of Abseryalis continues as Mingamango181 sends in two new sector surveys from this planet:

336.79 and 350.38

The former one is especially noteworthy, showing some interesting features at the edge of the sector.

Very cool, indeed. That doesn't even look like the typical edge of the sector mountain range.

I'm a bit late, but Mingamango181 sent in even more photos from Abseryalis. This time, the covered sectors are:

0.119 and 101.43

Take a look if you like chasms and/or falling into them.

So, today I received a new private message and suddenly noticed a much earlier, unread message sent by mingamango181... I have no idea how I managed to miss that message (probably has something to do with my poor memory, my long absence, some kind of browser issues, or a combination of all three), but anyway there's no excuse. I'm terribly sorry for the awful delay, but the survey is now uploaded. It covers sector 70.60 on Chrasycalya as seen in varied lighting and weather conditions Take a look.

That's not all, though! The message I received today actually contained numerous prime examples of photojourn... I mean extensive, thoroughly annotated photographic reports focused on various mountain-like structures found on non-Felysian worlds, sent in by... wait for it... Skinnymon! Here's the detailed list:


  • Aeckyrsalya: 232.2; 232.60
  • Aphtackreon: 345.68; 69.48
  • Astreya-olun: 151.2; 152.2
  • Cerynuya: 16.77
  • Eleysiacka: 36.68
  • Fal Frychufal: 253.26; 313.55; 315.54
  • Japhetrinun: 23.65
  • Radharphis: 263.27; 273.58

  • Fenia:

  • Ancient Pig: 173.11
  • Ardesia: 343.77

  • Ylastravenya:

  • Absystralis: 10.60
  • Trescalun: 349.29

  • Now go and see it all. Any typos I might have made are probably due to my long hiatus and should be pointed out immediately. Same for any of the newly uploaded sector surveys that refuse to work.
