Talk:Hilbert Dimension

Hi, actually it is no more the second. Once Awakening quest chain is completed there is option to select one of 4 new galaxies/universes. I have select (dark) blue which is not Hilbert, it is called Budullangr (I which easier name was assigned ...). I can only assume that Hilbert is now one of these four (there was options: red, green (I cannot remember for 100% this one color), dark blue=Budullangr, light blue)? --88.223.27.173 11:54, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

thanks for the info - I'll add it to the correct pages. I think Hilbert is still the default second galaxy but we'll check it out. Ddfairchild (talk) 20:15, 27 August 2017 (UTC)

Galaxy Suffix[edit source]

Could someone please move the Hilbert Dimension page to a page called "Hilbert", and the same for Hesperius Dimension. Galaxies Euclid Galaxy, Calypso Galaxy and Hyades Galaxy were removed of their suffixes, so why not "Hilbert" and "Hesperius"? It looks odd and disorganized on pages when it says: Euclid, Hilbert Dimension, Calypso. Wouldn't "Euclid, Hilbert, Calypso" be better? Colorthrowers (talk) 15:08, 20 January 2018 (UTC)

The "galaxy" suffix was removed from those you mentioned because it is an "object", if you will, more than part of the name. Also, if you looked at the list of the other 250-odd galaxies, most of them had no galaxy suffix. For the two "Dimension" galaxies you listed, those are the only two-word names, if you will. The Hilbert Dimension is named after the actual math concept CALLED the Hilbert Dimension so removing the Dimension is like deciding to refer to you as "colors" instead of "colorthrowers".
Or to put it this way, suppose you were going to visit California. Which of these would you be more likely to say?
  • "I'm going to visit Sacramento and San Diego while I'm there."
  • "I'm going to visit Sacramento City and San Diego City while I'm there."
  • "I'm going to visit Sacramento and San while I'm there."
Most people would choose the first option. In the same way, someone might say, "I visited Calypso and the Hilbert Dimension." Thanks for the suggestion, but the galaxy names should be left as-is, as that is the preferred set of reference. Ddfairchild (talk) 03:48, 21 January 2018 (UTC)

Hilbert dimension[edit source]

Is there anyway we could get some more points of interest for the Hilbert dimension? I mean, its literally the second galaxy you go to after Euclid, you would think that there would be many more players here with almost as many, if not as many, points of interest. The most I can find (with only 1 actually being a place I would want to go; traveled there, no S-class mosquito ship there as claimed) is about 8 points of interest. If I would have known all this from the beginning I would have most definitely stayed in the first galaxy. Can anyone help me out? I am currently at 100 hours play time, I have almost a billion units, and 20,000 nanite clusters, exo-suit almost maxed out, based all over the place, and basically nothing to do with no where to go (sounds crazy considering theres 18 quintillion planets) Anyways, any help would be greatly appreciated!!

I hear you loud and clear! Here are a couple of suggestions.
  • become the person who documents and provides points of interests for other explorers to follow. To coin a phrase, "...to explore strange new worlds. To seek out new life and new civilizations. To boldly go where no man has gone before!" Start visiting places and document the ones you really like.
  • use the credits you have to start a company or civspace in Hilbert. Provide donuts for visitors, or create an amazing base or two
  • find and document systems that are non-yellow, as they are the rarer systems. Or explore and document Exotic planets.
  • or finally, since you can now travel back and forth between galaxies, jump back to Euclid if Hilbert just isn't doing it for you
Put it this way - you have the chance to really make your mark somewhere in Hilbert, if that's what you want to do. Go for it! Ddfairchild (talk) 19:03, 17 January 2020 (UTC)


      :: How can I travel back and forth to different galaxies? I honestly wasn't even aware that, that was an option. But you're absolutely right! I'm sure there are a lot of other players out there that feel the same as me about the Hilbert dimension.
Also, what's a civspace?
Definitely like the idea of opening shop though so other players can come and get free supplies or food, I have already started taking a bunch of activated indium to the space anomaly and "blessing" other players. I figure if they're even somewhat new to the game it will help out immensely!
Here's a reddit link on traveling between galaxies: Galaxy travel
And a steam link (check the backtracking section): Galactic travel
A civspace is a user-created civilization. Probably the best known is the Galactic Hub Project. You can check out the Civilized space page in the wiki to see some current examples.
If you'd prefer to go the company route, check out the similar page called Companies.

     ::Awesome, thanks so much, really appreciate the help and ideas!
