A couple of days ago, CCP Larrikin made this map available. It is gorgeous and now serves as my computer wallpaper. However, it also conveys some interesting information at a higher level than we normally see.

First, it gives us some idea of the importance of high-sec. Out in sov-null, we like to denigrate it. Often for a good reason – it is, in our eyes, grindingly dull. And in any case, there is a sad lack of dinosaurs, bees, phages and strange squid things. However, it is also home to a significant majority of traffic in the game.

The Amarr-Jita highway is particularly evident part of high-sec’s travel geography, but there is also a profoundly contoured net of transit all around high-sec. This is notably different from much of sov-null, were player activities are concentrated around points of military power. This heat map serves to bring home the ‘lived in’ character of high-sec.

Secondly, it tells a little about low-sec. Low-sec is seen to be dead or dying, and this might be true – indeed, east and south low-sec seem barren and less traveled. However, north-western low-sec is alive with activity. Part of this is to do with it containing Black Rise, a noted PvP area. But I believe the other reason is that it links closely with GOTG and Horde space.

This segues nicely into what the map tells us about sov-null. We can see, in general terms, that nullsec is quite barren. This is especially pronounced in the south and east. There are small pockets and pipes of activity, but it is not well lived in. But there are two exceptions to this.

The first is Delve. We can see that it has developed a smaller form of the sort of links found in high-sec. The spinal highway leading from 1DQ1-A through northern Delve to Fountain resembles the Amarr-Jita highway. Meanwhile, less traveled routes branch through the region and into Querious.

The second is a combination of Fade, Pure Blind, and Deklein. Here, we can see an entirely emergent pattern of traffic in the high-sec style. There is a distinctive highway between CCP-US and C4C-Z4 (GOTG and Horde capitals respectively), and a branching system of links. However, what makes this second example so interesting is that it looks to have linked into low-sec. It almost seems like a continuation. Delve is very isolated, with only one faint route leading towards empire space. These northern regions are anything but. This relative isolation vs. connectivity is fascinating from a geostrategic and economic point of view.

So, there you have it. CCP Larrikin undoubtedly created a beautiful picture. But the complexities of New Eden traffic flows within it actually tells us quite a bit about the nature of the game universe.

  3. When looking for a villa for sale in Fethiye, you should first consider whether you prefer the peaceful setting of the villages or if you’re more of a town person. If you wish to be near tourist attractions or if you prefer to be living within the indigenous population. You need to know what the purpose of your purchase is, for example, if you are looking for a villa for sale in Fethiye with a view to renting to holiday makers, it may be wise to look in the most popular areas for this where you will maximise your income. When you see a lovely villa for sale in Fethiye, ask yourself if you would enjoy living there, what amenities are nearby and think about the potential issues that might crop up. If it’s rural, do you want to live in the countryside or if it’s in town, do you like being in the middle of the hustle and bustle. Choose the best option to suit your needs.

Most of the women are actually certainly stimulated to study all of them and now have extremely been enjoying those things. Thank you for being quite accommodating and also for making a choice on some fabulous issues millions of individuals are really desperate to discover. Our honest regret for not saying thanks to sooner.

  24. 它讓神經原在常規的緊張鍛煉中進行共振燃燒,由此帶來健身運動所無法達到的效果。Ion Magnum複雜的振動波是基于於二十多年對神經原燃燒信號的研究手工製作的。 設備製造者的臨床研究結果顯示,30分鐘的治療相當於在健身房10個小時的運動,可以燃燒高達5000卡路里的熱量。其他臨床研究顯示肌肉生成的速度以及脂肪(表面脂肪以及深部脂肪)减少的速度相應都比運動的效果更好。對於Ion Magnum沒有進行理療的部位,甚至會有抗衰老防氧化的效果。 有受試者治療一次之後同一個部位减掉了3-4英寸(不像其他减肥治療中宣稱的那樣,一次治療减掉了5英寸,但那是全身20多個部位加起來减掉的尺寸)。同時,它還可以减掉脖子和下巴的脂肪,讓你的雙下巴消失 . 每次治療需要25分鐘。治療前後的效果非常明顯,而且會持續1-2天。要想達到更好的效果,最好接受1-2個小時的治療。
