ok im currently flying in to a star to see what happenes the close i could get to it was 308,081 km so from there i aligned my ship and have been perma runing a MWD so im now going 3.4 km/s.

12 hours later 68,000 km away from the star and still going.

So has anyone done this b4 and if so what happenes?

When you reach the star you burn up and the character is permanently deleted.

Actually it would make sense as the energy output from a star at that close distance would be like getting alphastriked with a billion titan dd's. However in the games reality nothing at all happens. Well I guess you could fly into the center of the star and drop a bookmark so you can make some silly pics of ships bouncing off it at absurd velocities.Razz

You don't get to zero. About 3km from the end you'll end up bounced out (At an insane speed mind, iirc I ended up completely outside of the star when I bounced)

Back in the days of insta's I used to have an "instabounce" BM for a system in the rear end of period basis (I got given it by someone, can't remember who) that would let me do it from warp.

Make sure you make a few bookmarks just incase you get bounced before you create one :)

probably been answered allready, but I'm too freaking lazy to read.

you bounce off the star. no ill effect.
I used to use the surface of suns as safe spots (back in the days of multiple mwds you could get there easily, while anyone warping to you wound up 300k or so away).
now it's not worth the time to get there.

I actually have one of those. Y9G-KS, in fact. If you actually did it you'd know you get flung out at about 3,000,000 m/s.

BTW, to the OP: once you get to "0 km" you'll be nowhere near the center. In fact you probably have a lot further than 300,000 kms to go from there. Stars are huge. The only way I reached the center in a sane amount of time was with mid-warp bookmarks.

dude, that would be a sick safe spot. warp to the sun, and go flying off an a random direction.

as soon as they almost find you, just warp right back to the sun :P and WOOOSH your off into another random direction.

When you get to the center of the star, when you hit the little circle that you get if you click on it, you bounce off. Simple as.

…at which point you're already back in warp to the sun where you'll bounce off in a completely new direction. If it worked (big if, granted), you'd basically have one bookmark you could always continuously warp to and always be scattered over a huge swathe of space.

Mine never bounced me out but i was only at the 0m according to the game so i could probably have got closer but that was close enough, also this BM was last used about 5 years ago so who knows if they changed the mechanics since then, i also have a couple of 100+au from any warpable objects BM's made back when you could make a BM you could never warp to :P

I was certainly disappointed when I flew to 0km on a star and realized I was not even close to the center Razz It's the same way with moons and planets, though the distance from "0km" to center is much smaller.

For anyone wanting to experience the "bounce", try a small moon because it actually doesn't take too long to reach the center. You might think "wow" at that point but it's nothing compared to a star (think being bounced 3 AUs away).
