Things to Remember
To open a data vault, get out of you ship and use your repair laser on the red panels to turn them green. Keeps doing this until you can shoot the data leak (Noisey Thing) with your laser.
- When scanning for Vaults the results will appear as Purple.
- The scan range is severly reduced for Purple Anomalies
- Try to use Gates and Resource fields as points of reference, stations are built dynamically and could be in different positions, or may not even exist.
- Space Rifts also appear as Purple blips, careful not to fly through them unprepared and end up deep in Xenon Space
- When you get close, vaults will appear as a Small blue Tag on your radar
- In the screen shots below, the location is at the white square, if its too small to see, click on the image to make it larger.
Data Vault Locations
1 Antigone Memorial
This one is out of the way a bit, Its just below the warf, but look at the resource field patterns if your warf is in a different area. Its at the bottom left. There is also rift near that green nav beacon on the left.
2 Hatikvahs Choice III
At there top of this sector there is a Gas Field, it right next to this.
3 Trinity Sanctum VII
At the top left of the sector in the Asteroid/Gas Field, there is also a Rift nearby.
4 Pious Mists XI
The asteroid field is an upside down Y, the vault is in the bottom right.
5 Ianamus Zura VII
In the bottom right asteroid field.
6 Scale Plate Green VII
Incredibly Difficult, exactly 400km from closest gate, out in the middle of nowhere with no points of reference, make sure you dont accidentally fly too high or too low to find it, and you need to fly through a fleet of xenon, dont attempt this one unless you hate yourself.
The art of Ecky Thump may prove useful here.
7 Black Hole Sun IV
In the Centre is a resource field with both Minerals and Gas, Almost directly south is the Vault.
8 Cardinals Redress
37km North of the inactive jump gate, a little lower than directly west from the gate to lasting vengence.
9 Silent Witness XI
This one is off to the right in the middle of No-where.
10 Heretics End
There are 2 inactive jump gates in this system, if you go to the left most one and then travel east 85km you should find the vault.
11 The Reach
This one is a bit harder to find, the asteroid field here is a large circle, in the lower part of this circle is where the vault is, fortunatly, there is a rift within scanning distance which can make it easier.
12 Grand Exchange I
Just below the South east gate in the Purple Gas Field.
13 Nopileos Fortune VI
This one is far down to the right near the station, the “?” you can see in the picture is a lock box.
14 Matrix #9
Above the gate there is an inactive gate, then only a short fly west for this vault.
15 Lasting Vengeance
This might be a bit hard to find if you stations are in different positions since there are no other points of reference, the vault is 308km from the gate.
16 Second Contact II Flash Point
Near the nothern gate, pay attention to the resource area patterns and this one will be easy.
17 Atiyas Misfortune III
Head straight West from the jump gate to find this one.
18 Hewa’s Twin I
This one is easy to find, its in the Gas filed below the Trading station and Defence platform.
19 Profit Centre Alpha
This one is easy since it is within scanning distance of the inactive jump gate in the north.
20 Silent Witness XII
ENE From the Kha’ak Stations on the left.
21 Holy Vision
Just above the Jumpgate leading to the Xenon Sectors.
22 Trinity Sanctum III
This one is very close to the Highway that juts out to the side, Just above the Mineral/Gas Fields.
23 Second Contact XI
188km Directly North of the gate.
24 Memory of Profit X
South of the gate, a little to the right, small system so it should be easy to find.
25 Silent Witness I
This one is Just north of the lower Jumpgate, its very close and should be easy to find.
26 Pious Mists IV
This one is in the middle of the Purple resource field that runs through the Sector.
27 Eighteen Billion
This sector has a C shaped Resouce field, the Data vaulkt is in the Lower left side of it.
