Elite: Dangerous - 22,000 light years Trip

4271 ratings | 284487 views
Travelling this distance took about 11 hours of time, not including the occasional loitering in systems to take some pretty pictures. There were many nebula along the route, but real life time pressures forced me to ignore many as I had to get to the stricken Jacques station.

I remember Elite from the late 80s. It was one of the best PC games of the time.

With my recent not even far jump, I got so sleepy I crashed onto the Sun too many times!

What the hell is hyper space exactly though. I know warp is probably something like the alcubeair or however you spell it drive so how does hyper space work. Do you jump into a different demension were moving 1km there is like moving across a solar system in our demension. So you just do that then jump out into normal space in a completely different location or what?

Heh.. this trip ended my game on ED... I got half way and attempted suicide but couldn't! I bet if load up now i'll still be out there, all those quests expired... all alone. Great game!

Ooo yeah actually do a jumpaconda for this whit 71ly for jump range and sorry for my English not my native language FLY SAFE ! Cmdr! a great greeting from 🇲🇽! Arriba arriba taco burrito !
Edward Yaspi (9 months ago)
Scott Manley hi! Yeah! Is the best way I've used for exploration outside the bubble is the first time I go out and use the neutron highway but I also had a bit of luck because I have an AFMU grade3 and I just arrived to colonia with 3 or 5 repairs to the MDD (I do not remember correctly) because your MDD is wearing out, if you can take your AFMU grade 4 is the best option so you do not go so "limited" mmmm and another example yesterday after leaving my account a week after arriving in Colonia yesterday I left from colonia to sag. A made 1: 15hrs think about using it and good luck ;) 🍀👍

Was about to make a trip to the Eagle Nebula myself because I was expecting the Pillars of Creation picture to actually be in the game, and you would be able to explore it. Nah, got a hundred jumps in and gave up (was using an upgraded Viper MK4, had a poor jump range for exploration). Looked it up afterword and realized that it would have been a waste of time. On my way back to The Bubble now. At least I'll get a boatload of creds from scanning systems!

I remember 1-2 years ago in elite before we had engineers. Getting 1,000 ly in half an hour was amazing. Now getting 1,000 ly in half an hour is pretty bad...
Neisan Land (1 year ago)
Elite dangerous is still a brand new game, I expect that they'll add more stuff.
Travis Farrell (1 year ago)
My asp explorer is getting 46.03 at absolutely full fuel, no cargo and with a passenger cabin with passengers, and the latest route calculated was 3750 Ly in 88 jumps, which goes by pretty fast.
bashpr0mpt (1 year ago)
Wasting 11 hours to see an imaginary image of an imaginary star system in an imaginary galaxy based on guestimates not reality doesn't seem sensible to me. Frontier are almost as bad as Squad when it comes to unconscionable behaviour. Except where Squad from Kerbal Space Program borders on the criminal--at least the criminally negligent and open theft of code and intellectual property--Frontier are the absolute worst most cancerous developers when it comes to lying to their user base about fixing problems. They've been caught multiple times in lies, and NEVER fix anything. I still see daily complaints from users about shit we dealt with in the original kickstarter beta. Not to mention they've failed to deliver kickstarter promises, or then later SOLD them at cost.

Man you must had alot of money or been doing jobs while traveling because repair and fuel cost Lol

sounds like a super boring game lel
leon baugh (1 year ago)
I made it to colonia and then from there to sagittarious *A in my cutter that only has a 21LY jump range. Well over 1500 jumps in total. I'm currently on my way back to the bubble as of 16/1/18. 50 jumps from gandharvi
BigFatDuck (1 year ago)
Hey Scott! I was thinking about taking a 160LY trip with my Asp Explorer and I need a better fuel scoop. Do you know where I could find one like the one you have in this video?
Dathouse (1 year ago)
wait so if this station teleported what if you had your ship in there went offline before it started to act up and came back after it teleported? Would you just be in space where it used to be? would you go with it?

Wouldn’t it just be faster to use the Neutron Highway? If you did this with something like the Anaconda for comparison you could do the journey in around an hour

maybe, but back when I did that it wasn't an option.

Would like to make a trip with you sometime I made the trip back in 7 hours and streamed the whole thing live
Mike Streams (1 year ago)
May have deleted it in which case I don't mind doing it again if I can get a few people to hang out and watch me do it! You don't have to stick around the whole 6-7 hours either. It sucks sitting for 12 hours but I am down to do it if I can get enough support. Jaylive gaming can verify that I did do the trip as he was in my stream when I did it.

There are a shit load of people in this comment section that really think they have the universe and all of its secrets figured out. You heard someone like bill nye say something and all of a sudden its the be all end all of everything as though there is nothing new to discover on the matter... LMMFAO!! Its gotta hurt to be so blind.
TheReaverOfDarkness (1 year ago)
I propose a solution to the jump-out-at-a-star issue with Elite: Dangerous. The problem is that jumping out at a star is cool for the first few times and an iconic part of E:D so they don't want to get rid of it, however once you've been playing for a while it gets very tiring. Here's my solution: make a more expensive, larger, and less fuel efficient jump drive which pops you out further from and more to the side of a star. Now newbies will still be forced to jump near a star, and even veterans may choose it for better fuel efficiency, or if their ship is too small for the drive to be a good choice. But for those who really get tired of jumping near the star, they can make a sacrifice to get rid of it.

Haris Zark (1 year ago)
I'm sad to say that ED looks very boring to me. And I really like space sim games. So, what you mostly generally do in that game is "flying" from one system to the other without purpose...and doing it for 11 hours?....I have no words....
Haris Zark (1 year ago)
SuperDipMonster , yes but, there is not much of anything else...that's why it looks boring...
CMDR Qrusha (1 year ago)
Haris Zark, only if you're exploring, otherwise there's not that much jumping.

Oh, man! Those are 1000ly sections? Jeez! Well, I can't wait for my own long journey :). When I have enough credits for a well-equipped ship, I'm going to Saggitarius A, with a pilgrimage to earth on my way back ;).
Scott Manley (1 year ago)
+ptroinks so I could show the route I took and give you and idea of what 1000ly sections look like.

Locutus of Borg (1 year ago)
Not going to lie but this game steps on no man sky it has everything that game has but better except life but still better and no man sky copyed that thing thats shows were ships are at come on No man sky unlike no man sky in the center of the universe there a black hole not credits of who made no man sky i was disappointed after buy no man sky.
Locutus of Borg (1 year ago)
I had to there too but a passenger mission and exploration gave me 100 mil plus 38 mil for passenger mission and 30 mil in my character and boom my anocanda :) :)

How the hell are you able to store 11 hours of 1080p footage on your computer? I remember taking footage of subnautica that was only 1 hour long and it was huge!
Scott Manley (1 year ago)
Realtime compression, don't capture raw footage. Also, some of it was 1440p.
If I had this game I would be in the outer edge of the galaxy.
21willyx21 (1 year ago)
What keeps me from buying Elite Dangerous is that you look at the whole game from cockpit. Give me the option to walk my ship as it travels to space and its instabuy for me. Thats actually something I am looking for in any game.
BabyEater (7 months ago)
21willyx21 you can explore planets. But you have to be on a rover.

jumping sooo boring

Jim Ownby (1 year ago)
I just completed this journey last night, after about 6 weeks of elapsed time (this boiled down to about 1k LY per day, including scans.) The duration was due to this being an exploration mission rather than a speed run. Scans totaled ~100Mil (across probably ~1000 systems scanned), so not what you would want to do to get rich quick.
hr1meg (1 year ago)
This is pretty damn cool.
Ergo Gray (1 year ago)
I have a question, how rare a metallic rings around planets as opposed to metal rich ones? Is it 1 in 10, 1 in 100, ect..., Been traveling for a while and have yet to see one, was wondering if you knew the odds.

How many neutron stars did u see?
Shirako of Reverse (1 year ago)
I'm on a pilgrimage to the far side of the galaxy, estimated 65,000LY from occupied space, currently at 17k, out, I really need to get back to it, I'm trying to just do 1,000LY a day, as I'm scanning as well, so if if looks cool, I'll scan, discover, and continue on....I managed to fin a world with an atmosphere of 100% water and another with 100% helium

Nicely done, Scott!
Taylor C4 (1 year ago)
Actually I came here thinking I was wronging something, that there should have been a way to go faster between so far systems without having to play 10 hours just to reach something, I'm disappointed to see there isn't...

HollatotheBalla (1 year ago)
What's a good explorer ship on a budget to get across a large distance (I have about 8 mil CR in reserve)? I assume when I dock in a fairly modern space station, I can import my other ships, right? How much is that usually?
deadlyangel666 (1 year ago)
In case you're still wondering, the asp explorer ship is a must buy if you want decent jumprange, I get about 37,35 ly jumprange depending on cargo or passenger cabin installed assuming you lighten up your ship to D-grades, (max out your fsd thou lol 5A preferably engineered) make your ship as light as possible, + No weapons, class 3 instead of the standard class 5 shield lol
Dylan Youngs (1 year ago)
I'm currently on a passenger journey to somewhere near the center. 26,000 LYr @ 28.7 jump range. 52,400,000 cash tho
Dylan Youngs (1 year ago)
yeah I got back pretty quickly asI rushed it - I would never do it again but it was worth the 135 million. (76 mil for exploring). It was a good experience but you need something else to occupy you

Manabender (2 years ago)
I did an exploration trip once. Intended to go to Sagittarius A*. Would have been about a 58,000Ly round-trip the way I was doing it. I got bored about 3,000Ly into it and turned around. Still totally worth it though; when I got back, I sold all the exploration data for around 6 million credits, slapped my name as "first discoverer" on several dozen stars and a handful of interesting bodies, and went from neutral to allied with the controlling faction. (My jump range was about 44.30Ly; I had a super-engineer-upgraded FSD) Maybe next time I won't chicken out!
DarkChrisHour (2 years ago)
22,000+ light years... you are pleased you're finally there. To have gone so far, and the vast almost endless jump screen it took to get here...But it is tarnished by the knowledge that you have to do it again in reverse to get back.

Misha Dark (2 years ago)
Elite truly is one of the best, and in my opinions THE best game out there right now. I love everything about it. Sometimes I just sit and stare for ages at the majesty of some of its sights.
You don't scan planet surface with discovery scanner tho. It's Detailed Surface Scanner.

Despair (2 years ago)
I started to play the game today, and after screwing around with the controls for an hour and thinking "fuck this keyboard + mouse, I'll use my XBox 360 controller", I gotta say it's pretty fun. Although I mostly do delivery missions, since this "Sidewinder" is just bad. I was thinking about doing passenger missions for a living, but after seeing this, I'm starting to question it if that's such a good idea...
