I have spent the last couple of days around the Alperaute system, here are my observations
No Accelerator during the conduit phase, but it was rather easy to spot during the World Ark phase (which lasted about 2 days).
There were several Accelerator related events in the two last two days. The first time I entered the Chislov Leshak were constructing the Accelerator (rather quickly), though any subsequent times I went through the gate to the site they seem to be interacting with the Accelerator even though it was already constructed. Perhaps repairs?
There always seemed to be around 5, sometimes 6 Chislov Leshaks
Perhaps this is because the accelerator was never destroyed, but it seemed the gate and accelerator always appear at the same spots around the sun. The measurements are as follows (if I haven’t muddled them up):
The Accelerator is roughly 254,000km from the warp to spot of the sun
The Gate is roughly 301,000km from the warp to spot of the sun
The distance between Accelerator and Gate is roughly 157,000km
Excluding Chislov Leshaks, and the vessels around the jump gate, the rest of the forces guarding the Accelerator seem to belong to the Perum Clade, much like their forces that jump though the World Arks in the Proving Grounds
There is a moving part to the Accelerator around the top section rear area facing away from star.
Not sure what it does, though if the solar panels and other apparatus is taking in energy from the sun, perhaps this is where the station vents the output of this experiment and so potentially where all the system effects stem from.
- I have found certain symbols on the stations that most people would recognize in on of our own stations
Almost exactly like those found in a typical Gallente or Caldari station
Always wondered what those things were in our stations, maybe they are like a universal stop symbol and the Triglavians use them too. The whole set up reminds me of a station (more precisely a citadel) than anything necessarily Triglavian.
More random thoughts:
How do they build it so fast? I mean we have seen how long it takes them to build the Arks and what look like dreadnoughts, but this thing seemed to be built in minutes! I have a theory, which is perhaps it was already built in the Abyssal Space and perhaps that Chislov Leshaks are essentially transferring it to our space, in a manner perhaps similar to the how the World Ark forms support pylons seemingly out of nothing, or in fact, how to manages to vanish itself.
Judging by the hangers, and what look like traffic lanes I’m guessing this thing has a pretty large interior. However, is there any crew on it when it gets constructed/ported into the system? If there is no crew present then I wonder if capturing one intact may be plausible? I’m no expert in boarding operations, and it does look rather large and I imagine hard to navigate inside.
Finally I believe another Accelerator will appear in the system of Faspera shortly. Given this system contains when of those erratic Blue 01 Stars it may be worth a substantial investigation if anyone is willing to enter lowsec Derelik
Update: I did check out Faspera and managed to have a look around before I got podded by some random pirates, but thats life. I’m afraid my images did not turn out the best, but you get the idea from them
Chislov Lesheks seem to form the Accelerators using… you guessed it, Triangles
I recorded the distances between accelerator and sun, etc, which go as follows:
298 350 km: gate from sun
157,300 km: gate to accelerator
420,900 km: accelerator to sun
So it seems in the case of bigger suns, the accerlator and gates are found further away. The distance between gate and accelerator remains the same.
The angle of the accelerator faceing the sun was less, for lack of a better word, tilted in this system.
I spotted 3 uiWormholes in the system all going to Conflux. The Trigs were all over them
Just visited the one in Kakki
Unlike the others this one is tiled ‘downward’ towards the star
The Triglavians started construction as soon as I appeared but I also saw empty Triglavian vessel wreckage, probably from a previous battle at the same site. I had a similar situation with the gate site as well. Therefore I believe once they have picked a site, they will always try to form gates and Accelerators at those specific locations.
Distances this time round:
302,000km: gate from sun
157,000 km: gate to accelerator (this seems to be a constant no matter what type of sun)
285,265km. km: accelerator to sun
I thought a B0 sun may have been different from the other locations I have looked at, given their prior interest in B0 and A0 suns, but nothing so far.
