My information also tells me that the core is about 5000LY in diameter.

I messed around with the command lines, and I found that the actual limit that the game would let you go is between -2147483648<x<2147483647 and the same for y.

That is:
2.147.483.647-two billion, one hundred forty-seven million, four hundred eighty-three thousand, six hundred forty-seven

In order for you to fly the entire length of the universe (from one corner to another) with an average speed of 84 ly/day that would take you 25565282 days. That would make 70041 years, 10 months, 13 days.

Note: 2147483647 is not an arbitrary number. It is the largest number that can be stored in 32 bits.

Edit: If you go to the "corner" of the universe, you can continue clicking till you get past it. I haven't had much time to mess with this yet, but I think that the max you can reach is 2147483847/-2147483848.

Amaizing! Shocked

The real size of the Galaxy is much smaller, though! But there is plenty of space for counthless Galaxies...!

May I suggest a superjump drive:
- Can only be used by the leader of the highest ranked house.
- Travels exactly 300,000 ly in the given direction. No more, no less.
- Recharges in 30 days.
- Not entirely serious Wink

The galactic core ranges from about 5000 to ~7500 in diameter. If this super jumpdrive was implemented, then if would literally take you through the entire galaxy (and probably into another galaxy, if they implemented another one). Very Happy

I can confirm that the spiral arms of the galaxy do exist.

The Agnari empire spreads across the beginnings of two sperate arms of the galaxy, with a void in between.

There are some data that the arm to the east is populated.
I do not have any info about the western arm, but even if it does not exist right now it must have to come into existing exactly on the moment you fly into itů
