There are many important locations found in Everspace. Most are shown on the sector map with a high enough level in the pilot perk Sector Scanner.

Locations shown on the map[edit | edit source]

Current Location[edit | edit source]

While traversing the Demilitarized Zone to the final destination, the navigational map will indicate several aspects of each zone, listed below.

Jumpgates[edit | edit source]

Sector 7[edit | edit source]

Sector 7 is the last sector in Everspace, and is always the same. There is only one system. More info here.

Additional in-zone locations[edit | edit source]

Unmarked on the sector map, there are many other locations/structures in the game:

  • There are many derelict and abandoned stations and structures scattered throughout the sectors, often with Subroutines.
  • G&B mining bases and freighters with mining lasers and drones.
  • G&B Factories, large stations that need to be powered up before offering various services.
  • Small or large outlaw structures can be found, usually with jump suppressors, drone servers, ship hangars, and turrets. These may have been old Colonial or G&B derelicts commandeered by the outlaws.
  • Asteroids are the most commonly-spawned objects.
  • Large asteroids are usually are somewhat hollow, and spawn with Crystal deposits, sometimes Containers, and sometimes Outlaw or Colonial structures.
  • Clusters of small or medium asteroids often spawn with Resources or Containers.
