Founded by Axiom1380 and inspired by the Galactic Hub Project, The Arcadia Project is a family run endeavor that seeks to explore and map out the region of the Euclid galaxy known as the Yokoju Fringe on the PS4 server of No Man's Sky. The aim of the project is to find all suitable Garden Worlds within the region, and document them. Each garden world is a suitable site for potential outposts for anyone looking for refuge in the region.

As of the Atlas Rises update the project is now managed and funded by the Arcadian Republic.

Project Capital[]

The Zivangiseppu system was the capital of The Arcadia Project during the peak of the Pathfinder era. The headquarters for the project could be found on the planet Arcadia.

Now that the project is operated and managed by the Arcadian Republic the headquarters for the project can be found on the Republic's capital world.

What is a Garden World?[]

To be classed as a garden world by the project, three different factors of each planet / moon must be looked at, usually in the order listed below. For more detail of each different factor please see the Garden World wiki page.


  • Only worlds with Cold and Lush biomes are considered habitable depending on all other factors.
  • No Extreme weather on cold worlds.

Sentinel Activity[]

  • The level of sentinel activity must not be high enough for them to attack on sight.

Flora & Fauna[]

  • Flora must be present in some form.
  • Fauna may or may not be present, however if present will raise the status of the planet / moon.
