Question about the traveling between sectors/points in the galaxy
First of all - the game looks very cool and i think it will have potential, so i think of buying it :)

My Question: How works the traveling inside the galaxy?
I have read that you can travel via FTL-drive or something between the sectors like in the X- series but without warpgates. For the peaople who want to explore the secrets in the galaxy ( for example nebulas, asteroid-belts, black holes or lonely stations...) is there a way to steer for single points on the galaxy map (not a defined/instantiated area with borders in a sector/sun system)?

I hope you can answer my question and sorry for my bad english :P
Thank you.

Thanks for the quick answer :)
Apart from using jump drives - can I theoretically just accelerate my ship and fly manually from sector x to sector y without loading screens (seamless transition between sectors) ?

Thank you.

Thanks for your question. The only way to get to other sectors is through the mini map at this time, as loading the universe in its entirety would cause extreme lag, not to mention sectors are very far apart, so you'd see a long space of nothingness before reaching the next sector.

Technically you can, but it will take time. Like a lot. I think someone said around 2-3 days of the game none-stop.

I've already read it on Kickstarter that you can visit the systems manually. But yeah it takes very long. I just bought it, played a moment and catched the first bug.

Activated the MWD several times - the whole screen(UI elements and 3D objects) began to wobble and to distort, the ship parts as well.
I see it's an very early alpha and still needs a lot of time in the development process. So i hope i can help with my description. Below a screenshot :)

Sector-related questions:

Does the color of the sector in the map mean anything?

Where in the sector are you placed when you jump to it? Is it consistent or are you randomly placed in the sector each time you jump?

Each color is for one faction.

I think somewhere in the middle.
