Solar Systems

BACK

There are three types of Solar Systems (often called "Systems'), and they are defined by the types of wormholes that connect them to other systems.

The first system a player will encounter is a spawn system. When a player first exits the tutorial, they spawn into a spawn system. This system has only one wormhole in it, connects to a hub system, and the wormhole does not become active until a ship in the spawn system passes through it from the spawn system’s side. This means that until a player in a spawn system chooses to pass through the wormhole and connect to a hub system, the spawn system will not be accessible to outsiders.

A hub system is a system that spawn systems are connected to, and connect to hub-hub systems. The same principle that affects spawn system wormholes affects hub-to-hub-hub wormholes; a wormhole to a hub-hub will only become active once a ship in the hub system enters it.

The hub-hub systems are connected to hub systems, and to other hub-hub systems. All the hub-hub systems in the galaxy are chained together linearly; the newest hub-hub system connects directly to the second-newest, and so on. Hub-hubs will be important strategic points, because each system is a chokepoint for travel and commerce across the galaxy.
HubHub System Contains wormhole connections to 3 neighborhoods and 2 other HubHub systems.
Neighborhood Contains 2 Hub systems, 2 Spawn systems and 2 Respawn systems.
Hub System Contains wormhole connections to 1 Spawn system,1 Respawn system the other Hub system in the same neighborhood and one HubHub system.
Spawn System Where new players begin. Contains 1 wormhole to a Hub system.
Respawn System Where dead players get placed. Contains 1 wormhole to a Hub system.
