This article is designed to let the players understand how the asteroid moves in the **Oort Cloud**, and also to let the players have an idea of how the **Oort Cloud** looks like as well as how it works.

In the **Oort Cloud**, **asteroids** move in a jump-like fashion. They can change speed and the direction of movement. See **Maneuver the asteroid**.

One jump is done on an hourly basis. The distance of one jump is * 123,840,672,292* km if the player's asteroid speed is at

*.*

**1****Speed 2**is twice this speed.

**Speed 3**is three times this speed, and so on.

**asteroids** jump once an hour, but during this hour they speed up, and then stop without changing their coordinates.
This affects a radar update, which is updated once every 10 minutes if more than 2/3 or new area (real coordinates) is covered. The radar covers the real area, and not degrees.

**The Time and the Speed**

- Angle changing: It takes
**6 minutes**to change**1 degree**. - Speed change: It takes
**60 minutes**to accelerate or decelerate for each speed number. Accelerating from**Speed 1**to**Speed 3**would take 120 minutes.**Speed 1**to**Speed 10**would take 540 minutes. -
**Speed 1**is 123,840,672,292 km per hour. - If the player's asteroid speed is at 1 and it is moving along the equator line, 0,53 of one cell is updated once an hour. That means that if the player's asteroid moves more than 66% of the way through a cell, the contents of that cell will be revealed.

At **Speed 1**, it would take you * 480 hours (20 days)* to circumnavigate the Cloud. At

**Speed 2**,

*. At*

**240 hours (10 days)****Speed 3**,

*. At maximum speed of 10,*

**160 hours (6.66 days)***. For example,*

**48 hours (2 days)****Speed 1**would only take you

*of the way through a new cell each hour.*

**53%****Speed 2**would take you

*of the way through one cell and*

**100%***into the next. So that would only reveal one of those cells.*

**6%**- At the poles, moving at
**Speed 1**will only take youof the way through a new cell, making progress slower than at the equator.**5.3%**

At that, the number of degrees per hour will not change, but the number of kilometers and radar cells will.

** The Oort Cloud**

- The
**Oort Cloud'**s circumference (equator) iskm.**59,443,522,700,500** - One radar cell is approximately
km wide. This means the circumference of the Cloud has**233,111,853,727**cells running along it.**255** - The location of the player's asteroid(s) is recalculated once per hour.
