Social Exploration is the concept of combining procedurally generated content with modern
social tools to share a unique world among a community of players. Every few months a new
Maelstrom is procedurally generated on the server. The path to the core, the location of
artifacts, enemies, and beacon cells are all unique for that instance, but the same for everyone
playing that instance. LeapDriveOnline has a set of built in tools for sharing and tracking
each players trips into the Maelstrom, and those paths can be shared however the player wishes.
To encourage sharing and to help build an economy of exploration, if another player follows
a path that you have published, then you will receive a fuel bonus - which will allow you
to make even more trips into the Maelstrom.
