    Default Gimp to do SF maps

    Hi I am a newbie about this stuff. I want to do a number of things in map making. I am using Gimp v2.8.2. I have to say I don't know it as well as maybe I should. However the issues is I want to make maps for a Sci-Fi game not fantasy.

    First is a map of the Stars that the game will be operating around.

    Next I need to make a maps of worlds. A nice free map generator would be nice.

    Any suggestions.

    I don't know the look you're going for, but The Gimp should be able to tackle about anything you need. While most of the tutorials on the CG site are fantasy-map oriented, if you're just starting with The Gimp maybe dipping into a few of them would help you get some general proficiency with it.

    For your game, can you describe what you need the map to do for you? Are there any maps online you can point us to that typify the aesthetic you are shooting for?
