We are planning on playing Starmada in the near future and I wanted a fancy playing mat for the game. The rules call for 40-50mm hexes and I thought I would see what I could do in CC3 and Cosmographer. The full-sized version of this map is designed to print out to approximately 44" by 44" with 2" hexes and I plan to mount it on foamboard for a more permanent gaming board. It still needs a little fettling and I am uncertain whether or not to label the hexes. So, questions, comments and suggestions for improvement will all be welcomed.

Really lovely. I will try my first turn in Cosmographer this week probably. I will give some Rep for this map =)

Nice star map :)

My only quip is "does the grid need to stand out so much?"

Thanks, chaps.

No it does not need to stand out so much. It needs to be visible for game play but not 'in-yer-face' visible. It actually stands out more in the image here than it does when printed out, which is a relief! I'm still learning CC3 and experimenting with the settings, etc, so I hope to improve everything, including making the digital versions look better.

Love the map and Repped! I have StarMada but never played it, but the game looks sooo cool.
