1.) I can't read whatever is next to that dot, use jpeg not gif
2.) People have tried doing this sooooooooo many times before and it never ends up working, its a great idea but everyone's races already established and it's a little hard to get everyone to pick locations that work and then there's the problem with boundaries.  I think this would've worked if we had established an RP galaxy at the very beginning.
3.) I am in no way trying to tell you this is dumb, on the contrary, I always wanted the RP locations to be on a map BUT I am saying that I don't think this will fly due to prior attempts.

1. You can't read the dot because the actual image is 2700 pixels wide and tall, but for some reason auto-fit

2. I had to convert it to giv because it was like 3 MB before I did.

3. We should really try this time, Maybe everyone could list their species and the ones they contacted, and I'll make a template. Then we can debate the borders until they're right.

This'd be a lot better as a flash, with zoom functions and functionality such as clicking coloured regions to get more info on who it belongs to and such.

Also we use the universe, not galaxies. I believe weve gone into quadrents so far.

Remember, Space is 3D. What is one Empire existed underneath another?

Also, we already know where our Empires are. The Urshans and Auyuelcliads are very close, and beyond the Urshans are the Icthians, Forthi and Yunmuis. The Thoons are somewhere on the edge of the Urshan Empire.

I used those as examples. It is just something we agreed on at some point.

The problem of spacial depth ins't very significant, because the galaxy we would use would probably be a spiral galaxy, not thick enough to matter. If one empire owns some space beneath another you could just mark the area as disputed. It can still work.

@Munchkin: I can't edit that image.

Yes, this has been talked about before and rejected. It would just degenerate into someone saying that they had half the galaxy, but that's impossible because the ViS have half the galaxy, but then you remember that the Torpals are always conquering stuff, and even though the Nauceans have ascended they are still around, and the GU is one of the most powerful things at this time although the Alliance of Protectors was able to cut them down a bit, and on and on and on and on and on.....

if you want a map make your own universe thread, and describe creatures races and history yourself, it's something i've thought about many times before.
