Wormhole color?

Asked by [ Editor ]

Is there a way to determine class of WH space or WH exit to k-space by it's color?

I know I’ve seen something about this out there, but I can’t remember where, nor am I sure it goes 100%-directly to your question. Sorry!

You can't determine where a wh to k-space leads by color, though you can always show info on it to get sec status, but you can generally determine what class of wh a hole leads to by its color. Holes to C1s are blue, to C2s are green, to C3s are yellow, to C4s are orangeish, and then to C5s and 6s are red and black.

What you see in a WH is just the color of the nebula on the other side, and in k-space that's random. For whatever reason it is not completely random in w-space, CCP kind of color-coded WH nebulae by class. I believe there are occasional systems that violate the usual color scheme, but in my experience (and I've spent a lot of time jumping around in w-space) it works.

That said I'll always trust the WH type over the color, when it's not a K162, and either way you should check the info on the hole because there are k-space systems that have the same color nebulae too.

First part of your answer is what I was looking for (and I can confirm that C2 and C4 colors match)… I’m going to accept this answer although I know one can get better info on WH type by clicking and checking it out of game.

Not that I know of, no.

Wormholes are generally just the colour of the space they lead to, so if the sky in the system the wormhole leads to is green, the wormhole will be green. That doesn't tell you much, really.

The colour of the sky in systems are also pretty random.

But it's simple enough just to 'Get Info' on the wormhole to see what security space it leads to, or use the wormhole type to find out exactly.

I think this answer is generally on the right track.
