Of course, members to a new corporation want to contribute, and the most visible way is to help maintain the list. So yesterday I set out to actually probe down and submit an exit to EvE-Scout.
I'm new to wormholes, so veterans of w-space will probably laugh at my technique. Because I wanted to find a new exit, I first needed to purge my scan results of all the known exits. The only way I knew to do that was to just go down the list of exits on EvE-Scout and ignore the results for each signal. That left me with only 4 signatures to scan down. None of them were wormholes.
Disappointed? A little. But that just meant I could do a little sightseeing while I waited for a new signature to spawn. So I finished scanning down an ore site and took a look.
|Sleepers Never Sleep|
|Our Home Station|
Did I mention that Thera is a beautiful place? Well, in a creepy sort of way. After leaving the Sleepers, I headed to our home station to watch some frigates wandering around. I think an Ares was making bookmarks around the station. After figuring that no one was actively trying to search out cloaked ships, I got close enough to get within vision distance of our home station and get a screenshot with planet 12 offering the backdrop.
With no new signatures appearing on scan, I headed to the Epicenter. Yes, another site protected by Sleepers, but very pretty all the same. I imagine that the wormhole in the screenshot above had something to do with the devastation in Thera. Then again, with a site name like Epicenter, that's an easy assumption to make.
Finally, a new signature appeared. I quickly probed it down and found a new exit. I jumped to within 100 km of the signature and calmly (yeah, right) wrote down the signature name and wormhole type while crawling to 150 km so I could complete the warp to the wormhole. I probably should figure out a better way, but the travel gives me time to make my notes.
|A Pretty Site From Sovereign Null Sec|
With my self-appointed goal complete, I then headed back to my low sec station. I did half a data site on the way, but then for some reason I couldn't click on my overview. So I just abandoned the rest of the site and docked up at the nearest station. Turns out my anti-virus had updated. I figured Bob was giving me a hint so I just stayed logged out.
All in all, a pretty satisfying night. Now I just need to get even more adventurous and start exploring null sec space. Hopefully the Russians won't mind.
