Public Pathfinder instance

lost-in-w.space provides a public Pathfinder instance for everyone free of charge on https://pathfinder.lost-in-w.space.

It is based on the latest stable release from https://github.com/goryn-clade/pathfinder/ and all features beside email notifications are enabled. Please note this instance is “work in progress” and sizing, performance and availability is best effort. Please consider a private instance if reliability and stability is important for you.

For issues with this public instance please create an issue on https://github.com/fleischsalatinspace/pathfinder.lost-in-w.space/issues

Private hosted Pathfinder

lost-in-w.space offers private hosted Pathfinder instances in exchange for a monthly fee in ISK.

The fee includes:

  • HTTPS access to your private Pathfinder instance hosted on a server within a datacenter in Germany
  • Your own subdomain within lost-in-w.space. Bring you own domain available too
  • Timely updates to latest stable Pathfinder release available on https://github.com/goryn-clade/pathfinder/
  • Automated daily backup of your instance. Manual backup restore available on request
  • Monitoring of your instance. We notify you if your instance needs adjustments
  • Service related support in EU TZ via Slack
  • MySQL-dump backup file of your instance free of charge. We strongly believe every capsuleer should be able to choose where they store their data and if you are not satisfied with our service or wish to migrate to your own hardware, we are happy to help you succeed in that

:warning: All services are on a best-effort basis. We do this in our free time after all :warning:

All payments are paid in advance in ISK, currently monthly, quarterly and yearly payments available. Discounts are available below

product monthly cost billing cycle discount

Consulting

We offer consulting regarding hosting Pathfinder with https://github.com/goryn-clade/pathfinder-containers. If we cant help you, you dont pay us :man_shrugging: .

About us

lost-in-w.space was born out of the need to provide stable and performant wormhole navigation and mapping using Pathfinder. With the absence of the original Pathfinder developer exodus4d, further development of the software by members of Goryn-Clade, and changes to the ESI and SSO API by CCP making it difficult for non-technical capsuleers to run and update old versions of Pathfinder, we feel that by offering public and private hosted pathfinder instances, we can enable any capsuleer to navigate, map, and explore wormhole space.

Currently lost-in-w.space is run by fellow capsuleer fleischsalatinspace. If you think you can help us improving or extending our service, please contact us.

The public instance pathfinder.lost-in-w.space is online and there were no major downtimes. Users and concurrent user sessions are increasing.

  • On 2022-01-13 around 18:00 UTC the public Pathfinder instance experienced high concurrent user sessions, forcing an partial overload situation on the database. This resulted in users getting a forced logout 405 error message. In order to fix and prevent this, we have modified database settings and CPU resources.

PSA: The public Pathfinder instance has been upgraded to v2.2.1.
Fixes:

  • Adding corps to structures from dscan-paste works again. (was broken because of CCP ESI API change)
  • Map history logging works again (right click on map-> map info → tab “Log” )

Due to changes in the CCP ESI API Pathfinder needs a new permission aka “Scope” esi-search.search_structures.v1
This results that on login to Pathfinder you have to confirm this new permission once
