    Post Sep/Oct Lite Entry - Mapbox

    This is a deserted room somewhere out on the Final Frontier, and no wilder frontier is known to humankind.

    On the floor is a broken mapbox (a Traveller invention that was wild SciFi in its day, but which we would describe today as a GPS device in a digital photo frame) Use your wildest imagination to figure how it got broken.

    The shards of the screen still intermittently display a map of a ruin in the wilderness of some far-flung planet in the wilder reaches of the Orion Arm.

    This challenge has got me developing some skills in basic gif animation.
    I have ideas for a number of animated maps. Soon this site will be littered with animated starship deckplans with winking lights and operational consoles. Bwahahahar...

    Remember, you first saw animated maps here.
