    Default Galactic map for one of my scifi stories

    This isn't the first version, more like the 6th, I've made it again and again as my ideas about the universe have evolved.

    Keep in mind this is a little out of date idea wise and unfinished, I've already started another version!

    Also: ITS A LITTLE LARGE.

    Well without further adieu here is the 'Mad-Emperor' universe map:

    Well, I see someone has allowed themselves to "borrow" a little piece of Homeworld concept art. No worries, you're not the first. I should think at least one other person has done this before, though I can't really remember their name, right now...
    Otherwise, a good map. You could scale it down a bit, I don't think it needs to be that big.

    Hi Grim,
    nice looking map you got there ... you should check out Daelins as well, he's the resident maistro on space maps
    and next time you post, if you click "go advanced" you have an option to upload the picture straight to this page, then you don't have to host it somewhere else - and the system also make a little thumb for you (it has been know to be a little buggy lately).

    Don't be silly. I just did that one huge mofo of a map. Doesn't make me any kind of authority on space maps.

    @Grimnardwarfofthesouth
    Yeah, me too. If you haven't already seen it, check this beauty out.

    Did you create those planet icons or did you find em somewhere? I've been dying to get my hands on some for use, since I dont have the skills to make em.

    Really nice map, rep incoming! It's always good to see some sci-fi stuff here.
