Areas of Interest
Vincennes is a huge gas nebula, the largest of two nebulae found in the Ile-de-France system. Neither the nebula nor the asteroid field that lies within it contain any valuable ores, and the area was never of much interest for corporations. The location, however, was perfect for the first asteroid base in Gallia that was built within a large asteroid by presently unknown pirate groups.
Senlis Cloud is a bright orange nebula located within Oise Asteroid Field. The cloud is considered to be the former atmosphere of Planet Creil that lies within the field. Creil was once a huge gas giant that experienced a massive cosmic impact, possibly from a large rogue planetoid. Its atmosphere was torn apart and later condensed around its former core as Senlis Cloud, and the core itself evolved into an oceanic world of Creil.
Chevreuse Asteroid Field
Chevreuse is a mined-out asteroid field not far from New Paris. The trade lane and jump gate heading to Anjou come through this field. It also contains the jump hole leading to the Orleanais system. Before jump gate technology was developed, the jump hole was actively used by Gallic ships coming to and from Orleanais. Some traces of abandoned mining activity are still evident in the field. Nowadays, the jump hole is mostly used by pirate vessels coming from the direction of Beaumont and Avon. It is an unsafe place by Ile-de-France standards, and civilian ships are advised to avoid it.
Oise Asteroid Field
Oise is a large field of rock asteroids. It is most notable for the blue Senlis Cloud occupying the middle of the field, with Planet Creil located at the heart of the nebula. This whole composition provides a unique sight to anyone in the vicinity of Compiegne Space Colony.
Retz Asteroid Field
Retz Asteroid Field is a rare phenomena of a field located away from the orbital plane of Ile-de-France. It contains huge hydrocarbon deposits, which are mined by Gallic Metal Service using the Soissons facility located within the field.
Saint-Cloud Asteroid Field
Saint-Cloud is a large asteroid field in Ile-de-France. Some parts of the field previously contained copper and silver ores, but all of those have long since been mined out. Currently the field is one of the centers of pirate activity within the system. The proximity of Beaumont Base along with complicated navigational conditions make the field convenient for various unlawfuls and pirates to loot the occasional passing trade convoy. Due to the presence of the trade lane and jump gate leading to Orleanais, the asteroid field is regularly patrolled by Gallic Royal Police, which makes clashes between opposing sides of law quire frequent.
Verrieres Asteroid Field
Verrieres is a mined-out asteroid field located not far from the jump gate leading to Maine. This field was a site of active mining for about three hundred years. The field was fully depleted of any valuable minerals circa 600 AGS, and mining facilities were relocated to other systems. Verrieres is currently an unremarkable place visited only by Police patrols, sight seeing freelancers and junkers who search for mining loot.
Bobingy Debris Field
Bobigny Debris Field was formed over five centuries. Construction of Sarcelles and Compiegne, as well as a number of no longer existent space stations, produced vast amounts of debris. The debris was ditched in a large area within the Hexagon not far from Sarcelles Facility. Trade lanes that come to Sarcelles from New Paris lie within the field.
Senart Debris Field
Senart is the largest debris field found in Gallia. Its current shape and location around Brunoy is mostly explained by the gravitational influence of Planet Creteil that Brunoy is a moon of. The origins of Senart are rather peculiar and, unlike Bobigny, cannot be fully explained by nearby space construction. Although there's no doubt that much of the Senart debris was generated by massive space station construction going on around Planet New Paris, some parts of the field are known to be radioactive and may be leftovers of a failed experiment that took place in Ile-de-France around 320-330 AGS.
