The Spirals (Alpha Polaris 1,158M ly)

This page describes in detail the size and appearance of the Euclid galaxy.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Morphological tests on the neutral plane by the Forgotten Colonies have shown that the galaxy follows a symmetrical build. Its length and width both end at 819,000ly from the centre with the last systems in a radius of roughly 500ly being "unreachable" before they fade out. This anomaly is referred to as The Fade. If one follows the inner circle this distance extends far beyond 1,000,000ly from the centre until it reaches 1,158,000ly.

At 1,000,000ly, the outermost right border of a spiral (based on the ingame circle) is at 33.6°. The spiral from there extends to 57.1° towards the other axis. The centre is roughly at 45° at 1,000,000ly. It is believed this symmetry is equal at every distance.

The spirals finally end at 1,158,100ly from the centre. Short tests along h(+) and h(-) seem to indicate no anomalies aside of the establishment of "corners" around 1,159,100ly from the centre, 1,000ly more than at h(0). It is believed the furthest systems a Traveller can visit are in these corners.

A glide through the expanse around the spiral at 1,500,000 to 2,000,000ly has confirmed, that no system in the spirals reaches this distance, at least not on a neutral plane. There was no sign of systems, which would also fall outside of the portal network code.

The galaxy is a circular galaxy with four non-rotating spirals in wedge-shape at 45°,135°,225° and 315° respectively.

The galaxy has an approximate height of 102,000ly with a 51,000ly radius and the 500ly fade on each side. This gives it barely 1/17 of its normal radius. The galaxy is definetly not a sphere, but is build after its real world counterpart like a plate. This also explains why a further multiplier of 16 for the glyph sequence is not needed, it lacks exactly that detail in height.

Extreme Coordinates[edit | edit source]

There are several extreme areas people can explore and discover in the galaxy with portals. Of all those the centre is the easiest to find if one has the chance to reach a nearby base. For the more extreme adventurers, the easiest corner of the galaxy to find is the Alpha Spiral due to only needing 9 glyphs. That is unless one enjoys the jumps inbetween months of travel. The glyphs do not follow a basic A to Z value for a grid but begin and end at the centre for their respective intervals.

To reach a system near the centre, you only need the first glyph, but this will result in an error approximation teleport. You will land in one of several random systems near it with a remaining distance of around 2000ly to jump. To reach the centre directly a player needs at least the 6th glyph, the petal.

Centre coordinates are (Glyphs by Log Number):

  • 000000000000 - Error Approximation
  • 100104005005 - Sigardh Gateway Embassy (Glyph 6 / 126ly to Taco) Ijonag
  • 10FF04005005 - Atlas Gateway Taco
  • 100100FF8000 - Primo Notus, Southern Center Pole

Note when you use an Atlas Gateway to reach the centre you need a full hyperdrive to plan the jump!

The neutral h(0) extreme coordinates are (Glyphs by Log Number):

  • [2][1/1/1][1/1][9/1/1][1/1/1] - North Pole Boreas
  • [2][1/1/1][1/1][1/1/1][8/16/16] - East Pole Eurus
  • [2][1/1/1][1/1][8/16/16][1/1/1] - South Pole Notus
  • [2][1/1/1][1/1][1/1/1][9/1/1] - West Pole Zephyrus
  • [2][1/1/1][1/1][9/1/1][9/1/1] - Alpha Spiral Alpha Polaris
  • [2][1/1/1][1/1][9/1/1][8/16/16] - Beta Spiral Beta Polaris
  • [2][1/1/1][1/1][8/16/16][9/1/1] - Gamma Spiral Gamma Polaris
  • [2][1/1/1][1/1][8/16/16][8/16/16] - Delta Spiral Delta Polaris

All coordinates above can be error proximity teleports! For all locations one can get the exact address from the portal itself, but these are easier to remember.

The upper h(+) extreme coordinates are (Glyphs by Log Number):

  • [2][1/1/1][8/16][1/1/1][1/1/1] - Upper Pole Ame
  • [2][1/1/1][8/16][9/1/1][1/1/1] - North Pole Boreas Majoris
  • [2][1/1/1][8/16][8/16/16][8/16/16] - Upper Delta Spiral Delta Majoris

The lower h(-) extreme coordinates are (Glyphs by Log Number):

  • [2][1/1/1][9/1][1/1/1][1/1/1] - Lower Pole Yomi
  • [2][1/1/1][9/1][9/1/1][1/1/1] - North Pole Boreas Minoris
  • [2][1/1/1][9/1][9/1/1][9/1/1] - Lower Alpha Spiral Alpha Minoris
  • [2][1/1/1][9/1][8/16/16][8/16/16] - Lower Delta Spiral Delta Minoris
