This is something I've been working on for the last few month on and off (between work and other projects!). I'm pretty happy with how its turned out and its near completion. However I'm not sure about the annotation, which do you prefer;

The white out options?
or; The dark grey/black?
or; A mixture?
or; Something else?

Let me know what you think.

Looking good jamieg - Osiris reach is looking a bit week .. and concerning "Uncharted Space" I'd throw out the word hopelessly, as that is something you might say but not write on a map :)

That is NICE. Repped!

I personally would go with a mix of white and black text. maybe black for state names and white for 'geography', or vice versa.

I like the colors, and it does give a nice "spacelike" look.

The Windward States are connected to Chronos Prime via the "Winward States Trade Corridor". I'm guessing that corridor is missing a "d".

Also a difference in spellings between "Teriene" and "Terriene Ascendancy".

Again, "Crecey" and "Crecey Imperium" vs. "Crecy Trade Corridor".

And single "s" "Elesia" in the middle of the "Elessian Federation".

I think it could use a bit of ornamentation around the edges, probably a key, and maybe a few more named systems. It has the sense of not being authentic in that it is clearly drawn to two-dimensional conventions rather than trying to deal with the complexities of the three-dimensional outer space environment, but that's a hard thing to avoid, and it is looking rather nice within that common limitation.
