Note : In Beta it required a heatsink to safely land at basecamp 1 (Hades Edge - see the video on post #2). Testing the route in 2.2 the orbits have shifted and the worlds no longer sit within the stars corona, so a heat sink may no longer be required. But take one just incase the basecmap world has an elliptical orbit and is back in the corona by Jan 15th.
Important information for the Distant Stars Fleet.
The DSE fleet has now in excess of 350 starships. This will require coordination and timing to give us the most stable and incident free launch from Obsidian Orbital.
We currently have 7 flotilla flagships. These flagships will act as wing beacons and will all be in separate instances from one another.
The 7 ships will be piloted by the following commanders:
CMDR Dr. Kaii (EU Timezone) CMDR Erimus (EU Timezone) CMDR Susanna Saunders (EU Timezone) CMDR 27duuude (US Timezone) CMDR Marlon Blake (US Timezone) CMDR Jermus (US Timezone) CMDR grnbrg (US Timezone)
Each flotilla will wing in a maximum of 50 pilots into their individual instance.
DSE participants are advised to send in game friend requests to each of the beacon pilots. If you want to join an official fleet instance during the fleet build up at Obsidian Orbital, you will need to hail one of the beacon pilots and request a wing invite.
At 1800 Gametime the 7 beacon pilots will coordinate a mass launch. All ships in the flotilla need to set course to Merope, and align to that system. Keep an eye on local chat for the launch countdown. Everyone is to launch on your beacon pilots command.
This concludes the launch event.
From Merope pilots are free to travel to the next waypoints at your leisure (coordinated jumps not required), but please be at Hades Edge basecamp by 1930 if possible, and early arrivals please help fellow pilots reach the landing site by sending out wing invites to those asking for them in local chat.
The fleet will spend approx. 1 hour at the Hades Edge basecamp to give late arrivals and stragglers time to catch up.
At 2030 the fleet will depart for the Cancri Climb waypoint. From there the next fleet mass gathering will be at the Descion Point neutron star at 2200. Once the fleet has assembled, another mass jump will occur into the AH Cancri star system. This concludes day 1 of the DSE mission.
