Ever since Atlas Rises, on very rare occasions while in the Galactic Map, an unexpected thing happens.
This has occurred on 2 different profiles (PS4) of long lived legacy saves.
Suddenly, while looking through systems, the view zips off across the galaxy at a zillion miles per hour & fixes on a location called Likholu that appears to be beyond the ‘fade’ of the central galactic core.
Same location each time but the occurrence has happened from different parts of the Euclid Galaxy from midway in to the very outer rim, the latter taking several moments to cover the distance.
If I let the image linger for a few seconds, it will go to white screen, hang & then require a restart. But on this occasion I managed to grab a screenshot & exit out of the map in time. I’m yet to have the presence of mind to waypoint it & I doubt I could get there if I did.
It happens quite suddenly & ends just as quickly.
Something to note is the distance: Not only is it ‘in’ the fade zone, it appears to be 100’s of light years in there.
My location at the time this image was taken is 237,713Ly from the galactic core near the Etarc Hub. This location reads as 705,979Ly away: an impossible distance.
Given some of the lore regarding going to the centre, I couldn’t help wonder if there is more to this than some coding hiccup.
Does any one have any ideas?
Tin foil hat is on.
