Which solar system has the longest distance from one jump gate to another?

As commented upon in an old thread:

"9-266Q in Venal is pretty large. If i remember correctly one of the gate to gate warps (think it was H-PA/BV-1 oder BV-1/N6G) should be somewhat around the 290 AU mark. Did that once in a freighter. Never again Shocked"

Rubicon's warp/accel changes should shake things up though.

More for shorter warps than for longer ones, actually. The issue was acceleration time being constant. In short warps, that resulted in most of it being spent accelerating, so reducing acceleration times for small ships (and lengthening it for big ships) will have more of an effect. In long warps, you already spent most of it at top warp speed, so the effect is lessened.

Just FYI. Smile

The update will makes things better for interdictors and hics, mostly because the targets they chase down are larger than they are. Super excited for my favorite ship class to get even better.

Thanks for clarifying ISD LackOfFaith Blink

I'm going to need a whole new strategy for taking bio-breaks, or perhaps CCP could add a "Navigate through the largest systems only" option to the autopilot... *yes, invites death* Oops

... Fine, be that way! Evil

I ran this SQLite query on a recent DB dump:

Quote:
select solarSystemName, radius from mapsolarsystems order by radius desc limit 50;


The raw results are here: http://pastebin.com/rixaPWvG

Tinkering with the numbers shows that those figures are in meters (otherwise we would get completely bogus AU figures). This means that, looking at the top 50 systems by radius:


  • The largest system in Eve is J101248 in W-space, with a radius of 142.3 AU. That means that its diameter (and longest possible warp) is right around 284.6 AU.
  • Ranking 23rd is the largest K-space system, 9-266Q, with a radius of 101.5 AU, or a diameter of 203 AU.
  • Aeter is the largest empire system (and 39th in the ranking), with a radius of 83.8 AU, or a diameter of 167.6 AU. It is in lowsec, though.
  • The largest hisec system appears to be Yria, which is ranked 48th. It is 78.8 AU in radius, or 157.6 AU across.


Someone should probably check my numbers, or actually visit these systems to confirm the veracity of the info. I have been known to screw up.

The radius in the DB has likely nothing to do with actual distances of objects within the system. I can confirm that there are definitely gates further out than 203 AU in some systems.

Fair enough, I'll poke around and see if I can't get some measurements on that. Just have to figure out where/how the gate coordinates are tucked away.

I always thought it was a system in the Great Wildland, V89M-R or one of the system close by; I've only passed through a couple of time and the warp gate to gate is more than 200 au.

As a matter of interest, why is that top 50 list overwhelmenly populated with WH space?

Beats me. SQL databases do not really answer "why" questions. W-space is big?

You are so smart. +1

W-space wouldn't count, no gates there.

Aaaaand done. I wrote a quick little Python script to go through every solar system and compare the distances between its gates. You can find it here.

When run, its output is:

Quote:

Maximum gate-gate warp was...
in system 9-266Q
a distance of 201.97 AU
from Stargate (1-Y6KI) to Stargate (N6G-H3)


There you have it. It's still in 9-266Q as my radius search of earlier, but the warp is slightly shorter than the diameter of the system.

Let me know if you find any problems with my code or need me to look up something else. Big smile

Edit: Turns out the script was wrong. The fixed script is here, and the new CSV results are here.

For the spreadsheet people, I have compiled some CSV data for every maximum gate warp for every system. It's even nice to just CTRL+F through and see what warps you should camp try to not warp across in slow ships.

Enjoy!

Hey I need a good spreadsheet person to help me make a better one for keeping track of clients and others. Sadly the in game watchlist maximum is too low. We should get together and discuss sometime.

The "X" gets added at the end of the characters line.
You will obviously add the character into the list, if it's not there.
Ordering is irrelevant, as you are using notepads own search.
