The fact that the Jsigs are in real life database means nothing. The systems all have their own positions in game. They form regions and they form almost a galaxy that looks like a flower.


What type of flower cos i'm alergic to some?

It is also by design that capsuleers can light cyno's in WH's.

I hear it's getting used a lot by invaders beating their cynochest over the ruins of a slaughtered capital. It's called a victory-cyno.

JHHMMSS+/-DDMMSS: it's Right Ascension and Declination, allegedly for quasars in the vicinity of the w-space system, according to T0rfiFrans. There's a ton of assumptions you have to make about New Eden reference points verses Earth's, such as that we are using the same equinox of reference and reference plane (the J2000 first point of Aries and the equatorial plane of Earth) and that New Eden and the Milky Way are close enough for the RA/Dec angle measurements to be comparable.

As for these images and these images, they are basically mined from the data dump, and CCP does not consider them to be canonical.

...the location of the wormhole is actually the location of the nearest quasars, meaning that the wormholes are scattered all around the universe in different galaxies...

Without full and proper declinations for all the systems it would impossible to do better than this for a map of where the systems are.

As for J170376, it does not follow the pattern.

Are you sure? That second '7' looks like a mistake to me. In the J2000 coordinate system, this number is invalid.

Here's a catalog of quasars (big list), index here.

*note: It is common practice to truncate a leading zero in the seconds columns (for some reason) so in many lists J124508 would look more like J12458 (JHHMMS).

There was a shooting in the states but not sure if that is the reason.

This happened, most likely the name was changed IMO.

yeah last time the did something like that they named a planet in a WH to the name of the volcano that exploded in iceland so sounds about right.

Apocrypha went live in 2010, and they only now decided to change the name of a wormhole? Did anyone even do any research and care that it was a date of a school shooting most of us weren't even aware of?

A shooting with five victims, that happens about every single day in the USA. Implausible that they renamed it because of this one, unless one of the victims was related to someone at CCP. And if that were the case, why do it now after 5 years?

Nah, must be something else.

I still think the j-sigs are there for cyno mapping.
