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.
