I made it half way from the Monkey Head Nebula to the Rosette Nebula before I shut all non-essentials down for the night. It was peaceful out here, but only if you don’t count the creaking and cracking as my Anaconda lay battered and bruised, after the planetary crash landing.
The next day I awoke and plotted my course to the Rosette Nebula, a measly 1000 LY away across the galactic arm. Compared to the abyss I had previously encountered, this was an easy bit of travel.
Quite happy to have seen and cataloged yet another beautiful nebula. It won’t be long before I’m home, kicking back where I belong in either the Lave or LTT 4961 systems.
My first space game addiction was with David Braben's 'Frontier - Elite II' released in 1993 on the Commodore Amiga. This game actually gave me so much of what I wanted in a game that I continued to play it until the 'Elite - Dangerous' release in 2014.
I also played through the 'Wing Commander' series from Chris Roberts, enjoying them immensely. This led directly to my support of his 2012 crowdfunding campaign for the Star Citizen and Squadron 42 games that are still in development.
I use space games to try to escape from the pressures of real life. I occasionally upload or stream gameplay to YouTube and Twitch.
