Summary[edit | edit source]

Subproject 3: Atlas - Stellar Research, or just Subproject Atlas, is the third official Subproject of the Galactic Hub Project.

Purpose[edit | edit source]

The purpose of Subproject Atlas is to gain a better understanding of stellar clusters, better known as Regions, in No Man's Sky. Additionally, this subproject seeks to find a location in-game where the Rentocniijik Expanse is clearly visible in the night sky of a planet.

Specific Goals[edit | edit source]

Categorize Region Shapes[edit | edit source]

Certain regions share a shape. For example, Rentocniijik Expanse and Ocopadica are the same shape. This Youtube video shows the Uloselounti Adjunct, another similar region. Overall shaped somewhat like a mushroom cloud, it is divided into two sections: the lower, more organized/layered "tree" section, and the upper, more disorganized/scattered "cloud" section.

At first glance, other regions seem to be random/amorphous. However, it's possible that there are patterns to these all or some of these regions which are simply less evident than the "mushroom cloud" regions.

This subproject seeks to categorize the shared shape of as many regions as possible. Researchers should use image editing programs to trace the outline of a region. If you discover a pattern, you get naming rights - but try to be confident of a pattern. It is possible, after all, that the "mushroom cloud" regions are the only pattern.

Find a Celestial Observatory Planet[edit | edit source]

A lesser-known fact about NMS is that the night sky is an actual picture of the surrounding stars for that star system. This is easily confirmed after you go to the Center or the "Outer Edge," where large portions of the sky have no stars.

The Amino Hub has a known location where you can clearly see their home region, Ocopadica. This subproject seeks to discover a similar location for the Galactic Hub, a Celestial Observatory Planet. It won't be easy - you have to be far enough to see the definition of the the entire Shungka Void, but close enough that the region isn't obscured by too many other stars.

Results[edit | edit source]

Categorize Region Shapes[edit | edit source]

NOTE: Because Update 1.30 didn't change the shape of regions, only their names, there is no reason to divide these results into pre/post-1.30, as other Subprojects are divided.

Find a Celestial Observatory Planet[edit | edit source]

  • Locate a Celestial Observatory Planet as described under "Specific Goals," where the Shungka Void is clearly visible.
  • Post the coordinates for the system, and leave a Communications Station at the specific location where the Shungka Void is visible in the sky. Point by using the Comm Station's larger antenna like an arrow, with the smaller antenna being the tail end.

(LEGACY REGION / Pre-Update 1.30) Find a Celestial Observatory Planet - COMPLETED[edit | edit source]

  • Systems within the 11 regions of the Galactic Hub should be entered into the HMS. Then, post the system name here.
  • Systems outside of the Galactic Hub should have their coordinates posted.
  • HUB6-K-203 Muse. The dead moon Arechovsh-Lavo Stryk has a clear view of the Rentocniijik Expanse "Tree" section in the night sky. The moon doesn't have an atmosphere, making the night sky clearly visible even during the daytime.
