    Wip January/February 2014 Lite Challenge: Distant Frontiers

    Geometry made me think of the endless stellar ocean ...

    So, I'm going to map some star-thingy map.
    Big challenge for me, too, since my only contact with sci-fi has been Traveller; 20something years ago (omg ..)

    Anyways, here goes:

    That's very nice! I really like star maps! I'm loving this challenge's entries.
    Not that you need to, but just as a curiosity, if you want to simulate the solar system to get the orbits/distances/etc there are pretty good softwares out there.

    Info

    Thanks for your comments

    The stars (or rather: the systems' names) are some kind of "test your inner geek".
    I won't reveal anything here. Use your Google-fu to explore the quadrant on your own

    There are softwares for solar systems?
    Where?
    (And btw: I'm well aware, that the system I designed here is NOT to scale! If I wanted to put everything into proper scale, the system would visually disappear..)



    Kind regards,
    Kai
