Satellite Wreck on Hurston

Here is a guide to get you from Lorville to the downed satellite wreck. When you get there you could try climbing the Satellite as seen in the Citcon demo.

The Location Video

This video worked well just as it is so it hasn’t been edited at all. The flight is practically a straight line with just a minor course adjustment of a few degrees right on final approach. This occurs when the scanner reveals the target. I didn’t know I could use a scanner to pick up electronic signatures, and since this is a recently downed satellite some of the electronics are still working.

To start scanning, switch to the scanner display (TAB key), then hold down the left mouse key until the progress line around the central targeting circle reaches 100%. Release the left mouse key to send out a long range pulse.

As you will see in the video, an outpost to the right will show up in the scanner as a small blue wire cube. As I had already been to that location I knew that it should be ignored. Just go right ahead and keep scanning. Interestingly, the scanner displays a satellite icon at the location of the satellite as you come in for the final approach.


Use your ship’s scanner to find the satellite when you get close: select the scanner using the TAB key then use the right mouse button to charge a scanning pulse and release it.

Finding this location is easy when you know how – as you can see from the map. All you need to do is turn your ship to be parallel with the back wall of the building as shown then keep going.

Trying to make sense out of was available on the net took a fair amount of time and failed runs. The best instruction came from player Elvalley in his comments to a video posted by Day Late Gamer with Will. I didn’t confirm the distance but it seems close and you won’t need an exact reading because the scanner will do better for you than dead reckoning will.
