Farming Manufactured Materials at Dav's Hope

Dav’s Hope is an abandoned planetary base that has a large amount of manufactured materials ready for scooping with an SRV. Starting at our HQ at Dobrovolskiy Enterprise, plot a course for Hyades Sector DR-V C2-23 or use our squadron bookmark “Farm: Davs Hope”. This is 178.5LY from WISE 1506+7027 so it is advisable to bring a ship outfitted for exploration like a Diamondback Explorer.

Before you head off, be sure you have the following modules equipped on your ship:

  • SRV
  • Fuel Scoop
  • Planetary Landing Suite
  • Detailed Surface Scanner

Once at Hyades Sector DR-V C2-23, scan the system and begin moving towards planet A5.

If you have visited before you should be able to see an entry on your left side navigation menu for “Davs Hope”. If not then approach the planet slowly, use your detailed surface scanner to drop a probe onto the planet surface and begin your approach towards the co-ordinates 44.8180, -31.3893.

If you haven’t visited before this can take a little while to locate, this should be the one and only time you will have to locate it in this way.

Begin collecting the materials around this site, moving clockwise is advisable. Once you have completed a lap and collected all available materials, log out and re-log back in in solo mode to reset the instance. Repeat this step until you are happy with the materials that you have gathered.

If you want to optimise you’re gathering for trading up or down for other materials, use the below map and route instead.

The closest material trader is 42.91 LY away at Vaucanson Gateway in HIP 12067. It’s recommended to trade any common materials away at the material trader if you’re going to be doing a few return trips.
