System Accounting and the Map Gap

“For myself, I like a universe that, includes much that is unknown and, at the same time, much that is knowable.” – Carl Sagan

With less than 10% of K-Space (Known) left to go, I figured it’s time to make sense of the numbers. Looking at the upper right section of my blog, you’ll find my Exploration Statistics where I try to keep track of just how much I’ve explored of New Eden. There’s just one problem, ok, maybe two problems, they only reflect K-Space and they include several regions that are not reachable by capsuleers. Let’s go over just what I’m talking about.

HHK-VL II

In K-Space, there are a total of 67 regions which account for 5,431 systems as follows:
1,907 Empire Space
3,524 Null Sec
5,431 Total Systems

Explored as of today: 4,856 systems or 89.4% of K-Space

But wait! That’s not less than 10% left. What gives? I hear you ask.

MapGapThere are unreachable regions on the east side of the map. Two Jovian regions: A821-A and J7HZ-F as well as an unknown region called UUA-F4 (Developers test region). In total they account for 230 systems. As it stands currently, we’re not able to explore those regions. There are no gates that connect us to them. Jump drives apparently are unable to reach as well. We don’t have the technology to build gates to connect to systems that don’t have corresponding exit gates on the other side. Rumor is, the technology is being developed, but until then, we simply can’t get to Jove space or the unknown region.

What’s that mean for my exploration of K-Space? Well, it means I’ll not be able to complete it fully. So, I’ll do all I can before beginning phase III which will be exploration of W-Space (wormhole).

Systems 20151101

Systems explored as of 1.11.yc117 (Nov. 1st, 2015)

The adjusted numbers will be as follows:
1,907 Empire Space
3,524 Null Sec
5,431 Total Systems in 67 regions
– 230 Unreachable systems in 3 regions
5,201 Adjusted Total Systems in 64 regions

Explored as of today: 4,856 systems or 93.4% of adjusted K-Space

But wait! That’s not all the systems in New Eden. You’re right.

As I’ve just mentioned, there are indeed more systems to be explored that can be reached and they are found in wormhole space. They’ll add another 2,498 systems plus another 101 newly discovered shattered wormhole systems and Thera for a total of 2,599 systems.

All in all, everything that we know about New Eden can be found in 8,030 systems.
1,907 Empire Space
3,524 Null Sec
5,431 Total K-Space Systems
2,599 Total W-Space Systems
8,030 Total New Eden Systems

Now reality sets in. Explored as of today: 4,856 systems out of 8,030 or 60.5% of all of New Eden.

Just when I thought I was getting close to done…
