Local Region Survey

The Local Region Survey is the depository of geographical identity, localisations naming and mapping the Colonia backyard where we’re slowly settling.

“If geography is prose, maps are iconography.”
~Lennart Meri

With humanity starting to settle around the Colonia Nebula near the Galactic Core, opportunities arise for cartographers to step forward and map uncharted places in the area. The Local Region Survey is about visualizing, naming and creating bonds to places. What we hope to achieve is to make the Colonia Nebula feel less sterile and more like ‘home’ as a bubble 2.0 (just better!). Names in particular help us to quickly recognize a place and to form bonds with it through a past incident or story. Naming and cartographing are also tools to mark those places for posterity where history was written or where the Pioneers gathered on more or less special occasions. Out here at the frontier of humanity every explorer currently has the opportunity to put his mark on the maps of this wild and untamed country. The highest mountains, the deepest chasms, the largest craters and the meeting places can be cartographed and named by you!

  • The Local Region Survey only accepts inhabited systems, exceptional and/or inhabited planets, landmarks, unusual or remarkable geological features and historical or event locations (race tracks, etc.) Its reach only spans about 25 ly beyond inhabited systems. If your POI or naming candidate is situated farther than this, consider submitting it to the General Colonia Catalog. The only exception to the distance rule is for Earth-Like Worlds. You can submit an ELW up to about 100ly around the nebula.

  • When submitting, we recommend using Imgur to store your photos online (their links are short, it's handy). Please use .jpg compression and do not link pics larger than 1920x1080. For planetary POIs, we use photo cards to act as both an illustration and a map. Doing the system map and photo card by yourself would be a nice touch. If you have Photoshop or GIMP and are willing to give it a few minutes, for the system map use this Ps template or that GIMP template; for the photo card use this Ps template or that GIMP template. If you can't use those, add all the links to your submission or a link to a .rar archive, a DropBox, etc. Thank you.

  • The LRS will not be transferring inadequate submissions to the CMP, the GCC or any other project. To submit an entry, please select the appropriate form and fill it accurately and seriously. The LRS reserves the right not to accept a name if said name is frivolous, offensive, etc. Submissions cannot request to bear the name of the discoverer/submitter. Names must have a meaning and/or a background. The LRS will not be chasing you for a mistake or second thoughts and will, if possible, process the submission on its own; so submit wisely. Thank you!

  • Disclaimer: this project has nothing to do with the Galactic Mapping Project and is not affiliated to Frontier Developments in any way. This is purely for role-play and convenience among members of the CCN.

  • The discoverer of a body always has precedence regarding the name of their discovery. However, they don't bypass the rules and their submission has no guarantee of being chosen over an already given name (especially if a name seems to have stuck over time). The name of a system extends to the stars in that system, here designated by Greek letters (alpha, beta, gamma, etc.); this excludes stars orbiting a main star: those are named the same way planets are. If you want to name a planet or moon on which you named a POI, please fill both appropriate forms.

  • Submissions Forms:

  • If you wish to name a system and a lot of (if not all) bodies inside, send me an email with the full list. Don't use the lists on the 'Full Systems' segment below, they lack a lot of moons.

    Planet orbited by Jaques Station.

  • Moon | Hydra | Eol Prou LW-L c8-83 8 a | Disc. by Vetron | Named by Qohen Leth | Photo Card + Sys map

    This scarred moon displays an impressive network of deep canyons and several peaks and mountain chains dotted all around its surface. It thus earns the name of Hydra for its multiple peaking features and its violent past. At elast 3 mountain chains can be seen (Hercules Chain, Amymone Chain and Mounts Echidna), among which the highest peak reaches 25 km. The moon also features a thin mist which gives the place a unique atmosphere.

  • Moon | Pollock | Eol Prou LW-L c8-76 AB 5 a | Disc. by | Named by Qohen Leth | Photo Card + Sys map

Fungal Life
  • Fungal life | Animula Spires | COLONIA 3 C a | Disc. by Alesia | Named by Alesia | Photo Card + Sys map

    Area covered in fungal life forms at 47.21 / -174.16. The fungus have a unique sound on the wave scanner, like Vinyl being rubbed/scratched. The canyon is also narrow, larger ships may be forced to land on the edge and descend in an SRV. The Geysers/objects will not be visible unless the pilot is flying under 3.5km Altitude. Tall Spires covered with various types of fungal growths resembling those found on Earth and other planets, apparently thriving on the volcanic warmth and minerals around the Silicate Vapour Geysers. Samples of the Life have been turned over to the Colonia Counsel for examination. Pilots are encouraged to not disturb the flora as it is currently unknown how rare these life forms are or how quickly they grow. Any materials gained could be gathered the normal way via prospecting rocks that dot the planet's surface rather then destroying such a rarity.

Mountains
  • Mountain Chains | Hercules Chain, Amymone Chain, Mounts Echidna | Hydra (Eol Prou LW-L c8-83 8 a) | Disc. by Qohen Leth | Named by Qohen Leth | Photo Card + Sys map

    3 among several impressive mountain chains on this heavily scarred moon. The view from the peaks, with the deep canyons below and the thin mist evoking an atmosphere gives this moon a peculiar feel. Hercules chain, the most massive of them, refers to Hercules defeating the Hydra as his 2nd Labour. The Hydra lived near the Amymone swamps, near Lerna. Echidna is one of the two accepted possible mothers of the Hydra. The highest peak (Mount Typhon on Hercules Chain) reaches 25 km above sea level (calculated from body radius).

  • Mountain | Mount Typhon | Hydra (Eol Prou LW-L c8-83 8 a) | Disc. by Qohen Leth | Named by Qohen Leth | Photo Card + Sys map

    Mount Typhon (from the Hydra's father) is the highest peak in the Hercules Chain, just reaching 25 km above sea level (calculated from body radius).

  • Mountain | Mounts Echidna | Hydra (Eol Prou LW-L c8-83 8 a) | Disc. by Qohen Leth | Named by Qohen Leth | Photo Card + Sys map

    Mounts Echidna (from the Hydra's mother) is a pair of ice peaks, Mount Delphyne and Mount Echidna, separated by about 20 km. Mount Echidna is slightly higher than Delphyne, reaching 23 km above sea level (calculated from body radius). As these two mounts are isolated on a rather flat area of the moon, the view is quite stunning. There are a few landable patches on top of Mount Echidna (-76.8523 / 68.1724 for example).

    Located at coordinates -8.39 / -163.20. Home of the Running Man Grand Prix of Oct. 22nd 3302, in celebration of the 1,000th member of CCN. The track is a treacherous network of deep gullies, sandy plains and dark, winding crevasses on a tiny misshapen rock orbiting a ringed Ammonia world, twenty five light years below Jaques Station. The Grand Prix was a succesful event, live broadcast on a multi-stream. Original thread, large map and video walkthrough. Official celebration video.

  • Racetrack | Vertigo | Eol Prou LW-L c8-76 AB 5 a | Disc. by Qohen Leth | Named by Qohen Leth | Photo Card + Sys map

    Start line: 42.44 / -96.75; finish line: 42.61 / -100.70. SRV straight run on a narrow crest between two deep canyons. Fast track (full throttle on almost 100%) but requires precision and anticipation to stay fast on the ice. Focus and a mix of daredevil and carefulness will determine the winner. The track gets narrower one progresses and features 2 hillclimbs, followed by 2 downhills that are quite unexpected and very dangerous. The settings is nicely spectacular, with a very wide view and colorful ice canyons. Best run at sunset. Advice: set SRV sensors at maximum range and turn off headlights.

Racetrack | Vertigo | Eol Prou LW-L c8-76 AB 5 a | Disc. by Qohen Leth | Named by Qohen Leth | Photo Card + Sys map

Start line: 42.44 / -96.75; finish line: 42.61 / -100.70. SRV straight run on a narrow crest between two deep canyons. Fast track (full throttle on almost 100%) but requires precision and anticipation to stay fast on the ice. Focus and a mix of daredevil and carefulness will determine the winner. The track gets narrower one progresses and features 2 hillclimbs, followed by 2 downhills that are quite unexpected and very dangerous. The settings is nicely spectacular, with a very wide view and colorful ice canyons. Best run at sunset. Advice: set SRV sensors at maximum range and turn off headlights.
