# Hello from 4UE_Ate8. ![explorer_ii-withbg-with4ue.png](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmXUVHutKYQS9AHAR9NyrvGVHhdN5hJMfXLjiVuxD83J4X/explorer_ii-withbg-with4ue.png) This will be an 'expensive' discovery in my books. Why? First of all, it was discovered by one my version 2 Explorers (Ev2) and that requires significant resources to make. Second, the location of this planet is 38 tiles away. That means I'll need about 1 day 14 hours for Ev1 to get from Banasphere's sister planet 2CC_PA3556 (271/-35) to 4UE_Ate8 (309/-35). It has been 19 days since my last planet discovery and the four Ev2 sitting idle in the space docks wasn't actually conducive. The temptation to send them out was unbearable and according to [Rondras posting](https://steemit.com/nextcolony/@rondras/how-to-effectively-use-the-explorer-ii-in-nextcolony), the only way to use Ev2 effectively is to send it out far far out, and that's what I did. # Pioneer Gamma 3/0 This 7th planet, I think is the very first planet discovered in this particular sector/region i.e Gamma 3/0 After a little investigation, seems to confirm my declaration. ![4UE_ATE8.gif](https://cdn.steemitimages.com/DQmNWhpQAHcAdsiQfsXbHJV8trXXmWt9ZqvkMZCW6in5yB7/4UE_ATE8.gif) # Confession Lately, I've been 'shamelessly' looting other ignored planets within my reach. Well, if we look at it another angle, I can be helping to ease the capacity overflow of resources. Yet I was hesitating to attack these planets as they had explorers parked in docks. If you (@shumansky or @zerotoone) happen to read this, your Explorer suffered collateral damages from my act of looting or putting idle resources to better use. I'm willing to send you back some Explorers, if you want. PS: last post reward been forwarded to @rafalski, as promise. Have a good week ahead and more planets discoveries.
