Alright guys, some initiative has been taken. We’re going to get the Hub Project back up and running. Here, we will be discussing the possible locations for our shining new Hub. I know the original plan included minor Hubs in other galaxies, but for now we will work on the Euclid based Hub.
Everyone is welcome in this discussion and all input is valued. This will continue to be a community project, and your input is needed. For now, I don’t think we will require any structure in our suggestions. This will be an open brainstorm. We need to get a sense of what’s important to this community. Whether you already have locations picked out, or you just have a simple idea, put it up here. The more, the better right now. If you have screenshots, bring them too.
There will be tons of questions to answer (DTC, quadrant, proximity to other hubs, etc.) so we will be using a fair amount of polling. I’m thinking these will stay open for a 9 day period (friday through following sunday) to allow as much participation as possible.
Please answer the polls below, it will help me get an idea of who’s around and ready. This will also tell me who can help with scouting and location verification.
- I’m in Euclid, ready to go
- I’m in Euclid, but can’t join in yet
- I have all 16 Glyphs and can travel freely
- I have most and can travel some
- I have a few/none and travel is difficult
I’m going to include some thoughts I had to serve a starting point, but feel free to ignore me and get your ideas up. I thought it would be wise to take a lesson from the Galactic Hub, and position ours not too far in from where players start. That would make it easy and fast to get to with black hole roulette. But that seems pointless now because of portal travel. We can put the Hub anywhere really. So again, what’s easiest. As far as I know, and can easily explain, a position further out in the alpha-quadrant would require the fewest glyphs. So, my best suggestion would be a location in the alpha-quadrant, maybe ~600,000ly out?
Let’s get to it This will be a very long process, so the sooner we start the better.
