I’m preparing some images for a blog post, and thought it worth sharing this one before I finish the post. I had a lot of fun making it.
It’s a chart of star types, by class, (all, except the first 3 classes, O, B & A, are screenshots from in game), and a rather limited analysis of their distributions throughout the ED galaxy.

The survey should be taken with a pinch of salt, as the sampled regions are (relatively) small volumes, and this is really at the ‘just for fun’ level of rigorousness. I know, for example, that there are several D-class stars, and at least one B-class star, very near the ‘Region 3’ I analyzed (which is the region within the current beta space). A more thorough analysis would repeat the process at various longitudes.
I hope to finish the post soon, (a general discussion of the galaxy and exploration in ED), it’s getting quite long!
[Update: As of Beta 2 it is now (more) possible to differentiate individual systems within the centre of the galaxy. This was not possible when I created this infographic.]
