    Map Adding some Space

    After silently reading the forums and snatching useful ideas for more than a half of a year I finally decided it was about time to show some maps of my own.
    Sorry for cyrillic: they were used for a PbF game played in Russian.

    Those are cool! Can't read them, but they're really well done. One thought, perhaps, is that they could use titles for what each overall map is focused on. That third one in particular is especially intriguing.

    Thank you for your kind words!

    The titles used on a global star map describe them in terms of stellar classification (Stellar classification - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - we were trying to keep as close to actual data as we could), it's mean temperature, mass, radius and luminosity compareв to solar.

    The first planetary system map only lists a number of moons each planet possesses, and approximate populated for the only inhabited planet. Star data is thу same as on global map.
    The second planetary system map is a bit more detailed, with planet type, radius, mean density and moon numbers listed for each planet.

    Out of curiosity, for what game were these star maps used? Very impressive work.

    Thanks everyone.

    Gamerprinter, these were made for a custom-written setting. The third one depicts the whole human space, a so-called "Star Chain", showing interconnections between it's elements. The first and second are maps of the 13th and 11th "Chain links".

    OK, a custom setting for what game - Traveler, Eclipse Phase, or some other game I don't know about? I don't play too many sci-fi set games, but I am familiar with some and have played a few. Amazing maps these are (as Yoda might say)!

    Gamerprinter, now you're leaving me a bit puzzled of what exactly you're inquiring about. We've been using GURPS 4ed for game mechanics and referring to Traveller Tech level tables (which are way more detailed), but aside from that I cannot link it to any other game published. I hope that answers.
