That’s right! You heard correctly! After much bumbling around with jump ranges, engineers, and waypoints, plans for a new expedition in Simbad are underway!
The trip will be designed to accompany all players, both new and old. It will offer a challenge to those who start out, but still be attainable with some of the cheapest ships in the game. Veterans will get to take a trip out to new 2.3 assets, and see parts of the galaxy that they might not have ever thought existed!
Currently, we are sorting and processing lists of waypoints, and there is still time to suggest them and sign up for the expedition. Knowing jump ranges is important, as we can then pick out waypoints that we know are accessible for everybody.
The current theme for the trip is a short (for waterlubber, at least) hike around nearby stars. The final waypoint is intended to be around five to seven thousand light-years away – although it can be closer, depending on how much stuff there is to see along the way.
We look forward to seeing you when we depart, whenever that may be!
