    Map The Orion Arm: From the Ends of the Earth

    Hello folks,

    This is the galactic map for a science fiction setting I've been working on over the past few years. After being dissatisfied with my previous attempts I've rebuilt the map from the ground up. There's a pretty extensive back story to explain why things are the way they are, and if you have any questions feel free to ask!

    Pretty. REALLY pretty.

    You say 'for a science fiction' -- do you mean written works? a game? personal imagination project?

    Whoops, I forgot to add "setting" in there, haha! It was originally for a video game project some friends and I were working on, but we're currently transitioning into an as of yet unannounced project.

    This is just fantastic! As RedEpic has said, it is very clear and gripping. Repped and rated.

    Cheers,

    I'm not big on space maps (typically) but that is pretty sweet. Compelling, makes you want to know more.

    Wow² This is just awesome. I often regret that the syfy maps are not that numerous here... But with this quality, it's largely forgotten! Everything is just excellent!
