    Default October / November Lite Mapping Challenge: Star Lines

    No idea if I will get this finished, but I did at least get a map started. The idea is to show in a strait line of a curving warp line in space, going from one (yet-to-be-named) star system to another, with stops along the way, which will be described in more detail along the top and bottom of the map.

    I got some more work done on the map. Its now developing into an alt-universe steampunk style. Still need to add in details on the planets and whatnot.

    Simply brilliant. This Idea is so great I have to tryout a similar Map. Personally I think this Lite challenge could also have been a 'Big' Challenge, its pushing the borderies of our standard maps here a lot. Great! get my Rep

    Here is the latest version of the map. Added in a "menu" selector, and a crank and pulley system to show how far along the ether-line the ship is. Plus did lots of other little tweaks. I think I am pretty close to being done. In case you were wondering, I got the dinner menu off of Wikipedia. According to them, its the first dinner served on the initial run of the Real Orient Express.
