So since i started playin i've heard about about hidden planets/systems, now i know there is the "silly rabbit" area thats on the galaxy map. But are there any others? Read in a recent post that Korriban is a hidden planet, is this true?
Everything was revealed several months ago. The Silly Rabbit sector is just an admin sector that is a holdover from dev server. It will not be present in the new galaxy.
Saying that, come the new galaxy, once its synced to main, new planets/systems will be added, which (from our discussions so far) will intially be hidden, and become revealed either when built on, or as soon as someone arrives there. However, that will be told to everyone once we get to that stage.
The current coordinates use the numbers 69 & 666, but you have to figure out if there are any '-'s or not and where they are placed, after the GGR it's location will be not be where it was (or will it?)
Tiali, joking in some place like the General forum is ok. But doing so here, where players who are unsure of the nuances of the game will inevitably lead to confusion when those players take your word as gospel truth and attempt to apply it.
These forums are to help players understand the rules and how various features work, with a minimal amount of fuss and confusion.
Ellias would be the person to ask, though he's said before that after he was done there'd be a month or so before the changes would actually sync across, to allow people to prepare themselves. I don't know if that's still the case.
It is still the case. We're getting very close. I've done about 3/4 of GEs changes now, and just waiting on some last groups to get back to me with their planet lists etc - I know roughly where they want to go, just need to sort them out. Though if they don't respond soon, I'll just make up some stuff for them.
Hopefully no one with a character in the game will be involved in the adding of these initially hidden planets. Once the original planets were revealed it was no surprise that the usual suspects owned most of them.
If we are going down the hidden planet road again it needs to be done fairly this time.

Yes we will. However Jesfa's plan is for us to build up a pool of systems, and he or the system randomly chooses which ones to add to the game. SO though players may know where they all are, they won't know which ones are added.
But will be able to regularly check the ones they care about, in or near their own sectors, and almost certainly be the ones to find them. Even if it takes some time that's a lot less then those who have to actually search the sectors repeatedly.
Their co-ordinates within the sector would need to be at least somewhat randomized as well for it to be reasonably fair, even if that meant relocating them to their canon position upon discovery.
