Solar map beta
I have been tinkering with a map for the solar system according to the corebook. I would be happy about any kind of feedback (you know stuff like missing planets/gates/moons, wrong names etc.) here is the link: http://www.mediafire.com/i/?j17d49h99bigung thanks

Re: Solar map beta
Dude that rocks. Very Pretty. Stuff I'd like to see: A key that tells what the cool looking space station symbals are. Probably these are ommitted because of space but you're missing a bunch of stuff in the Earth Luna system Lunar Orbit: Korolev Shipyards, Cluster, Pop. 30,000, biggest shipyards in the solar system, (ref SW. Mare Vaporum, O'neil, pop. 50,000?, Mitre, Cluster, pop. 10-20k?, Selene Station, Torus, pop. 3 million Tsukomo, Torus, pop. 10k? Harmony's Embrace (ref. SW p. 140) Earth Orbit: Elegua, Bernal Sphere, pop 120k Vishnukam, Torus, pop. 10,000?, (ref, Glory adventure in GM pack) Shenlong, Cluster, pop. 0?, TITANs (ref. SW p75) Earth Luna L5 Hexagon, Torus, pop 20,000?, Direct Action's main habitat. Earth Luna L4 Remembrance, O'niel, pop 2million +, Seat of the LLA government Hotel California, Dome/behive, pop 8000?, Brinker Station. There's also Blackrock at the L3 that fell to the TITANS and the Fly Trap at the L1 that fell to the TITANs. Excelent work! :D

Re: Solar map beta
Excellent map! This is perfect for keeping track of the big ones. I think the key problem is how to show things in L4, L5 and L3 points. Elysium is in Earth orbit but on the opposite side of the sun. Locus is as far from Jupiter as it is from the sun. And so on.

Re: Solar map beta
Very beautiful map. Maybe the LaGrange points could be done in a corner breakaway window or something?

Re: Solar map beta
Thanks for the feedback - i have updated the map - and it sure got crowded around earth/luna :-) : http://www.mediafire.com/?gbh5dlq269mychv The only thing i could not fit in anymore is "Hotel California". Right now i am using the same symbol for all types of stations/habitats. But if anyone feels like posting a list "station name/type" I could try adding different symbols for each station.

Re: Solar map beta
It definitly get's crowded. You're doing a better looking job than I did. If you want I could hook you up with my web designer buddy who'd just getting into EP. He could set things up so you mouse over each habitat and it pulls up the stats in a window instead of crowding the area with text. How pissed will you be if I list all the things missing around Venus? :D Aerostats: -Lucifer; pop 230,000, Morning star constelation, Primary Surface mineing habitat. -The Shack; pop 130,000, Morning star, The largest Aerostat, builds other Aerostats. -Pavarti; pop?, Independant, the biggest redlight district in the inner system. -Machu Picchu; pop?, Random Democracy -Selinis; pop?, Nanosocialists -Shukra; pop?, half elected half hypercorp congress, a hotspot for nanofab and software design and gameing companies refered to as the 'Silicon Cloud' -Etemenanki; pop?, Planetary consortium, serves as a resort for several Hyper Elite Dynasties -Deep Reach; pop?, Owned by the hypercorp; Omnicore. Orbital Stations: Gerloch is a station not an Aerostat. - Thought; Torus, pop?, PC (Cognite), Radical AI research. -Far Reach II, O'Neill cylinder, pop 75,000, PC (Omnicore), Advanced nanofabrication and chemistry. -Cythera; Torus, pop 50,000, Morningstar Constelation, Teraforming research -Frost Fire; Cluster, pop 35,000, Morningstar, icesteroid collection and distribution for teraforming. :D

Re: Solar map beta
It will be okay, there's a lot of space around Venus on the map. Thank goodness it's a small planet!
hOliMoses hOliMoses's picture
Re: Solar map beta
Venus is updated - thanks OneTrikPony. But before I post it - is there any other stuff I am missing ? Like around Uranus or Neptun (that space doesn`t look crowded enough yet :-) ).

Re: Solar map beta
One major typo on the map I noticed: Neptun should be Neptune. Colin

Looks to me like you've got everything outside of Saturn that has been named so far. Really excelent work, man.

Re: Solar map beta
A lot of the stuff Pony said to add comes from Sunward, and since it's sister book about the outer system isn't out yet it's a bit more quiet out that way for now.

Re: Solar map beta
This is going to be a bit cheeky, but is there any chance of getting the map in a higher resolution, such as 300dpi, please, as I'd love to print it off as a poster, but 72dpi would be too pixelated? Colin

Re: Solar map beta
I have put up a version with a higher resolution. However I don`t know if the image i started with is good enough for printing big size. Let me know how it turns out: http://www.mediafire.com/?68cr48nyv22so

Re: Solar map beta
Much appreciated, mate, thank you. I'll give it a shot printing it and let you know. Colin

Re: Solar map beta
Incredible map! Maybe another spelling issue: Around Earth, the Hexagon Direct Action Forteress (should be Fortress). Need to find a quality printer now! Wonderful work.

Re: Solar map beta
Great work! I'm working on something similar, but probably in HTML and not a pure image. Having trouble finding the right scale however... I would love to have something exactly to scale, but there's an awful lot of empty space in space... shocking I know :)
