Let's make a universe!
« on: April 13, 2006, 12:11:21 pm »
There are alot of threads about creatures and their local worlds- why dont we amalgamate them?
Like in the Galatic War, but with maps and similar.

Hate to sound pessimistic, but I think it's a bit too big. Everyone will want to be in there, and unless we have some automatic submission process some poor devil will have to add a hundred different creatures on a starmap, link them all to whatever threads they're in and keep updating everytime someone makes up a new one. Plus we have at least two or three galactic empires so we will need to ahve many different GALAXIES...

I have the time to make maps and the like. I am prepared to forward myself for this project. To get started:
Galaxy 1

The Transclucent area indicates an empire. To find the name of an empire, find the planet of that colour and the tag will tell you.
Planets in an empire are half the colour chosen for planet and half the empire owning them.
To make it easy i will always change this pic rarther than add new ones. If u wanna be added just put your System name and an empire you are in.(Either join one or make new) The creator of this thread will be the grand universe person and if i do anything wrong, he will kill me. You can also say your system colour but its first come first serve
BTW your empire doesn't have to be an "Empire" It could be an alliance or something. It doesn't even have to include a system or species name.

Sounds like fun. I guess mine will be the Utopow Solar System, it could be located somewhere near the center. Although the System only has three Planets and one sun the planets are all under the control of the Serlan. The Empire is called the Kontek Empire. If my little area of infulence could be blue i would love that :D

Its a bit messed up, the labels and arrows dont match. I think a mixture between the two ideas would be best.

I think you have to view it with IE or somthing. it messed up for me too. Sash was the one who made it.

Yeah much better, I don't like the grid style of the systems though, empires don't have straight borders, thats what i prefer from Chaosandwalls' version.

True but also you have to rember how huge thinsg really are. In the galaxy before those empires are very HUGE. I mean like so extremly huges it insane. Also somthing we cannot post either is the 3D part of it. Space is not flat. and even though a galaxy is a disk it still has depth to it.

well i think we have to either pick one version and stick with it, or we could create a new one combining both ideas.
I personnaly don't like the grid layout empires are not so...... regular. Anyway i have updated my map
Also on mine the empires are colour coded so they could expand and still be easily recognisable.
The reasons the empires are so big is because i hope other people will join empires rather than create their own

I agree. The grid is just so logical
Space is not logocal
