Advanced shield (-78,-201)

The race is on to Earth. I have a feeling you will find it first. I have to start working more now so less time to play. I just hope one of us finds Vanister within the month the way things are spaced out on hard.

The named rings are just a technique I use to find everything, namely, through calculations, I found that rings spaced X spaces apart, if you go left and right off the main path to check, will allow you to get everything within said ring.

x =

Engine 0 = 10
Engine A/B = 15
Engine C = 20


I've been looking for the Advanced Shield for a while; it's out THAT FAR?!?

Wow O-o

Oh yeah, and I forgot to mention: I finished the Miyamoto Ring, finding the KOR-654 ball and things that have already been listed above. I'm now starting the Finalement Ring at 135.

Yeah...the advanced shield really is that far out. I'm getting scared how far out Earth and Vanister might be. I am trying to do a 200 ring right now.

I wouldn't be surprised if Earth is out in the 400s. On Easy it's in the 100s, and on Normal it's in the 200s.

Perhaps the Desolation Ring would be a better name...

I've completed about one-third of it, and I have yet to find a single item or planet. >>"

I'm afraid to say that the Desolation Ring is a suitable name. I've completed it, and I only found 3 items. o_o

-130 23
korobo missile launcher

-97 -143
specialist access card

-33 -134
extender

What is the diameter of Vanister? I am halfway done with the 200 ring and have found only the 1 item I've listed so far. I would like to optimize my next ring to be the perfect distance for finding Vanister, so the diameter would be very useful to know. Thanks everyone.
