    Default The Great Divide

    I very rarely do any sci-fi mapping, and I wanted to change that. This is a pretty big project, hopefully it'll turn out somewhat decent.

    The galactic arms that are showing as of now are just placeholders; if anything remains to indicate arm position, it'll end up looking substantially different. There may not even be any representation of the arms. If I can get the political boundaries looking how I want, there may not be any need.

    OOOOOOO, interesting. Listen, I doubt you need more references being the veteran cartographer you are, but I'd like to point you in the direction of Distant Worlds, which is a space 4x, but more importantly in that it might provide you an interesting jumping-off point for a political/galactic map! Enjoy!

    I'm looking forward to seeing this complete!

    Heaven of mappers, yes! I'm very curious and eager to see you make a sci-fi map, Diamond!

    looks very interesting! So what will the great divide be here? I assume that since it's a sci-fi map the cultures and nations represented in it it will have the technology to travel through space?

    The Great Divide is that big gulf between the two galactic arms; this map is set after a sort of galactic dark age, and its an age of exploration and colonization. Think 18th - 19th century age of colonization, in space.

    "18th century"

    "in space"


    Sounds legit.

    That's literally one of my favorite settings!
