    I hate being colorblind, I can never be sure about what I see.
    Really great work! Blue is defenately a good choice. I think I see a galactic pirate sign with crossed bones and everything (see attached)

    Haha that's pure coincidence of course but nice find. Thanks on the color feedback. Which of the "sector names" styles in the current WIP do you guys prefer?

    Haha, thanks, and you are welcome. When you use them, remember that GIMP can scale brushes. I am not a heavy gimp user so I forgot about that at first. (it can't rotate brushes though, I think, which is kinda too bad.)

    I printed the map out on A3 on a color laser printer, and I LOVE it if I may say so. I will definitely print this out to A2 or so (I forget what resolution the bitmap has).

    Three things though:
    - Readability: Blue Pacifica looks best on the printout. Star names are very hard to read, but that should improve once the printout is bigger. Also the "breakout" lists of colony names are almost impossible to read.
    - I almost wish I had not applied noise to the underlaying map, but it's too late now. I think this probably looks better on a high res print - and anyway it is not "terrible" by any means so I can live with it.
    - The Skull Nebula needs trimming down, it is way too dominant

    The map is A1 at 200 dpi. Think that works for a printout that size?
