Distant Worlds 2 - A Journey of Discovery

There's now a Beagle Point beacon in space near the main star commemorating DWE2:

"Distant Worlds II was an ambitious five-month expedition to the far outer rim. It launched from the Pallaeni system in January 3305 and reached its final destination of Beagle Point in May 3305. The purpose of the expedition was to unravel the mysteries of the galaxy, and to construct a startport at Sagittarious A*.
This beacon marks the final Distant Worlds rendezvous point, which was visited by 3,747 Commanders during the expedition."

Yeah I saw that. Erimus mentioned one at the basecamp, which is why I checked. Needed to land there anyway for a video I'm making.
 
Depends on where you cross. Coming back from the rim I touched the western perimeter at times. With 55 ly range it took me three weeks of manually plotting boosted jumps. Stopped opportunistically to gather materials, otherwise I'd have run out of germanium for sure. Definitely a neat experience!
True.. can always push the boundaries. But I meant going more or less straight. One highlight of my DW1 trip was spending several weeks crossing the Abyss in a 33LY Asp trying to find a more "western" route. Ended up having to use a couple of jumponiums, so failed.

Yep; was wondering whether it was miscommunication/confusion between Erimus and FDev. Would be neat to have an actual signal/waypoint at the Basecamp.

Would be even neater if we could deploy them for our friends/squad/everybody, although I guess the Galaxy would get swamped pretty quickly. At least the popular places.

I initially asked if it could be a surface beacon for BP - at the basecamp, but it looks like FDev couldn't/wouldn't place it there.
 
Still nice to have a beacon in system for DW2. Would have been really nice to have it the basecamp though. I took a little cryo-nap so I'm still at the basecamp as well. Periodically wake up and take a little spin in the SRV and enjoy the sights.

I'll probably start a slow return journey aiming to reach the bubble around the end of the year.
 
Lol, sounds like there's quite a few of us still camping out here.

Who's up for organising a date/time to have a meetup?
 
Hey Maia, can you check the surface basecamp on Beagle Point, planet 2. It was supposed to get a DW2 beacon at some point, I'm not sure if it has yet (other locations received theirs already).
Sadly it was not I whom I was referring to. I got half way back, then turned around and escorted a friend out...a friend who had started the expedition with us but had been held up after WP3 due to real life issues. She made it a few days before the closing date :) She is camping out there while dealing with other RL issues.
As for me, I literally just finally made it back to the bubble about 4 hours ago.
