Bit of a tricky question to answer, and im not sure how you would go about answering it...but.

Which system in EVE has the shortest overall aggregate system jumps to get to it from all other systems.

edit - or better worded; which system is the closest to all other systems

(i hope that question is worded coherently enough, i had a bit of trouble getting it to make sense)

So is it like the Kevin Bacon of systems? All other systems will have a 'Bacon number' that tells you how closely related they are?

Are we talking gate jumps or cyno jumps? Long dead-end pipe systems will affect the gate jumps answer more than cyno jumps answer.

Do jump bridges count?

What if the POS by the jump bridge is named Kevin Bacon?

The brute force method of solving just gate jumps would be to take every system, calculate an autopilot route to every other system, and sum the total number of jumps involved in each route. Lowest score wins.

I don't judge people by their race, religion, color, size, age, gender, or ethnicity. I judge them by their grammar, spelling, syntax, punctuation, clarity of expression, and logical consistency.

It's 6 cynos to Kevin Bacon.

I like where this is going.

How is there a 'central' nulsec system, when nulsec surrounds the borders of hisec?

given that there are 5000 or so systems in the eve universe, each system has 4999 sytems to which you can head to, giving 5000^2 = 25,000,000 combinations of destinations to calculate. Thats a lot to calculate.

Well, get the calculator out and make those 25 million different routes and prove this theory Big smile

When someone finds out which system it is we should petition to have it renamed to B-ACON.

In the beginning there was nothing, which exploded.

I have an A* pathfinder routine that operates on a list of paths between nodes somewhere around here. If no one else steps up, I'll see if I still have that code and dig it up tonight, get a list of EVE's gates, and take a crack at this.

No guarantees on a time-frame though; as mentioned this will require a ton of calculations.

Also, the DOTLAN guy will probably have a faster answer than Chribba, just saying.

A professional astro-bastard was not available so they sent me.

Any thread about Kevin Bacon's ego get a +1 from me.

Since the cessation of their usefulness is imminent, may I appropriate your belongings?
