After noting we had a lot of 'land" in the map but not a lot of "sea" I decided to change that

Map 1

Map 2

Map 3

Note:

1. The space containing the Fredonian Alliance and the Graids is known as the Isolatia Sector
2. The bold lines are wormhole paths. These are lanes of (mostly) empty space created as an after math of wormholes. Black is artificial ("canals") and grey is natural ("Rivers")
3. I cannot shade with Microsoft Picture It! 7.0. So I went old English on ya and left boundaries of sectors open to interpretations

You've already done it.

Put the sector names in a different colour, they're too easy to miss.

I made this a long time ago. It's outdated and your edits are jarring, to say the least.

I meant ares with few planetary bodies outside of Claimed space which would be the 'land"

Why do we need unclaimed space? There's plenty of galaxy left to go around.

Please stop posting for a while, work on your typing, and lurk.

Getting mixed messages here do want empty sapce or not. And I thought if were going to have empty space might as well name it.

Why should I? Because you're the one who's made all the sectors, it's your problem/fault if I can't see any of them.

Why don't we just make a 3D version of the grid map?

One for x and y and another for z.

No, I mean for the NG, since its better to start early with maps and stuff.

As for the OG, I think the 2D grid map is a good idea, you just have to change the color of the background and simplify the markers.

The grid map looks like a Go board how do I make seas on that?

                     Remove the quadrants and gridlines and make the background white. However, don't remove the coordinates on the sides. Make the worlds dark in color to be in contrast with the white background and there you have it! :) Hope that helps. :)

What is this obsession with seas?

The purpose of a map is not to create empty zones, you realize.

The "Terflagidorine Expanse" can be within a species claimed space.

I just noticed, you have some things labled based on compass directions.  North and south have no meaning in space.  This map is not a 2-D plane, it is not a fantasy planet.  Galaxies cannot be scalled down and be represented as a single world map.  It doesn't work like that.

               I think what he meant was to identify the different arms of the galaxy. This is a spiral galaxy, right? Did I get it right, or do I have the wrong idea? :-\

I'm sorry, but can you stop calling it seas, or at least worrying whether seas would work or not?

Space is NOT an Ocean

I love that site. Space herpes. Heh.

Yeah but then I'll basiclly have an island chain as the grid map doesn't have territory boundries(plus it's too big)

          It's very hard to make boundaries in space using a 2D sheet because its three-dimensional. A territorial boundary system can only be done in a 3D program like Bryce or GoogleSketch. It will take quite a lot of time, though. But if someone could, It'd be nice to see it.

Yeah, I always did like mine the best.

Unfortunately, you posting here has only encouraged this guy to further botch it into unrecognizability.

Renaissance, a word of caution.  If you are going to modify the map, keep it clean, keep it tidy, and whatever you do, don't preach it as being "the best ever".  Others before you have tried this and it was often one of the biggest blows to their reputation.  You seem to have alot of positive energy, which is what the forum needs, you just need to apply it in the right fashion.

Yeah, when I created the original map, I was all but called an idiot because so many others had failed to do it. It took quite some time before people stopped complaining and started to help. Show us something decent and we'll help.
