    Default [WIP] Empire of Humankind

    Alright, so this is my new big project, and I think is coming along nicely already. This is probably going to be my biggest map yet, because I intend to stick a metric ton of stuff in this thing.

    As you can see, its a really big chart of planets of this fictional Empire of Humankind. The setting is the same universe as my previous Katafraktus VII map, which is to say the far future where humanity has spread across the galaxy, encountered numerous alien species and settled dozens of planets. I plan on including most, if not all of these planets (if I can fit them in), give each of them a little description, and, if possible add trade lanes, points-of-interest and a bunch of other stuff.
    I plan on really getting detailed with this map, and not just skip past stuff that I would've liked to include, as with previous maps. So, yeah, this is definitely going to take some time.

    So feel free to C&C on anything you can think of.

    Subscribed!

    That planet top middle looks a little wierd. You may need to scrap that one!

    The only thing I would say in criticism is that aside from the one small planet they are not varied enough in size. Also the planet bottom left the features seem a little too big. Maybe a candidate for size reduction.

    Nice start, I look forward to the rest.

    Which one is that, exactly?

    Remember, more or less everything is still very much a WIP. Everything will change along the way, much of it drastically.

    very cool - so now I wonder... I see Mars has gotten a lot greener since I last visited... *lol* ... do the landscapes that has appeared on confirm to the landscapes on the red planet - or is it free fantasy?

    The planet Mars hasn't changed since my first post. Maybe you just thought the planet called Haaigon was Mars because it look more like it. Well, actually, it is Mars, un-terraformed, "borrowed" straight off the net and given a planet-spanning megalopolis.

    The Mars that is the actual Mars is also "borrowed", if you will, from this thread, with a bit of retouching done, and a cloud pattern added. Whether it is based on the actual geography of Mars, I cannot tell.

    Hi again, I was only curioius to if "the green mars" was a correct copy of the "red mars" (the real one) just terraformed - or if it was just fantasy ... the "visiting mars" was a joke

    Latest WIP. The thing is kinda taking shape now. Need to make a whole bunch of more planets, but in the process of "requisitioning" some from other sources.

    Once such source is a map by newcomer Muddle, which can be seen here. He has given me permission to use it, so props to him for a great map! His work has been turned into the planet "Muddle's First", and I think the style goes great with overall look of my project.
