    This is so cool. The details really make this pop and it's so much fun to just look at. (Although I DO wish I could push those buttons...)

    Even if I am correct, I would still advise you to follow your heart. This whole Cartographers Guild thing, it seems to me, is more about passion and skill and learning new techniques than it is about definitions and rules.

    Woah, you call this a lite mapping challenge? It's very good. Now the ship itself just needs to be better defined.

    Oh one thing I noticed, Vicki would never say 'I' she would use the royal 'We'. Not sure if she has 'friends' probably 'subjects'!

    Well, I was going to do more, including a detailed back-story about how the Ether Lines were discovered (around 1800) and how that affected history (um, lots!) but looks like I've run out of time. Here is the last version of the map. All I did was change the crank a bit and added in some lighting effects.

    This is good enough to win a "golden" compass award. Nice job Tim.

    I agree with arsheesh.

    Also, you've got a typo. On the planet Zanistan, it looks as though you've got an extra 't'.
