The idea has been jogging in my head for a while, and I've mentioned it a couple of times already. But seriously, we need a good map of the Milky Way galaxy. It would be such good Roleplay material and has a good chance of being strategic as well. Sadly, I don't have the time to fumble with Inkscape so I couldn't complete such a work.

This is the best map I could find.

But the problem is that there are not enough territories to draw, or you would have to divide each arm into a twenty sectors and give them numbers as names.

Well I said this could be good rp material , and giving the sectors(perhaps make them star clusters or systems?)good sci-fi names isn't that hard.
But true not a lot of territories.

I think that would work better if it was actually based of something. Does anyone know any sci-fi comic/book/film that takes place in the milky way?

I do know a video game, Mass Effect. Just not 3. lol Though that isn't exactly what we're looking for on this map.

I came up with a good idea! How about a diplomacy United States instead with additional speculated 51st states such as Puerto Virgo (Puerto Rico plus US Virgin Islands), Washington DC, and Greater Hawaii (Hawaii plus Guam, Northern Marina Islands, Palau, Marshall Islands and Micronesia) or perhaps something as wild and crazy as Philippines (Yes people actually want this a state) and Canada (One of America's Closest allies this would be a nice state to help people get from Washington to Alaska.) Or maybe we can start splitting states based on politics like North and South California (Or we can keep it as a vital separation between pacific and mainland which I prefer.) I look forward to Belgian Gentlemen doing this idea the most as he is my favorite diplomatic map maker and as long as this becomes realistic and doesn't go too broad like splitting too many states, but adding or splitting based on real facts is better.

I don't like the prospect of that. Tbh, I don't like the prospect of any more
" diplomacy " maps. Plus it WOULD be a little controversial, and furthermore this thread was supposed to be about planning out the basics for the map and allowing someone else to make it. I don't want this thread to become a squabbling jarble of different people talking to different people about different maps.

Who cares if it is controversial it is a game not real-stage politics get your facts straight. And next we only got about 6 diplomacy maps that is a small array to choose from obviously that isn't enough. And next this was named ideas for a new map nothing is wrong with a little subject change that happens in real life all the time should we stick to the same conversation with our friends for 1 hour just the same stuff is said that is stupid.

Idear* for a new map. There are quite a few diplomacy maps out there, you just need to look. Though I do agree about the political thing, I still feel some people would take it the wrong way. To finish this post, this is a forum thread. Not a real life conversation. Do real life conversations last for half of a week ?

Really? Cannot recall that, mind pulling up the evidence?

Also, I was referring to the sense of mindless spamming of a bunch of maps in this thread. Seahawks, are you calling me a forum troll? Considering you chose moto, bender, and pulsey to describe I'd have to assume yes.

Now, may we resume the discussion of a galaxy map?

This is idear for a new map, not ideas for a new map. We were having a nice talk about preparation for the galaxy map, then you busted in with some diplomacy idea. Just stop.

Neduchadnezzar, you should have called the tread "Galaxy map idea", because the title is a bit misleading.

Hmm when doing a United States map involving Hawaii and other Pacific Islands it is sure that the United States will be small or the pacific islands will be closer to the United States keeping the US big. I agree Belgian Gentlemen should do the map he is an excellent map maker and my favorite as of now as well :D

Answering them only fuels their idiocy. I'm afraid continuing your posts like they never existed is the best solution we have till now :D (until someone's parents teach them proper manners or they get old enough to learn them by themselves)

By the way i like the idea about the map, maybe we can collectively search for some good maps. I vaguely remember an application where u can explore our galaxy and it contained more or less every know object (celestial body or whatever they are called :D), but can't remember the name.

there are millions of stars and planets in the milky way, and thousands that are known. Which one will you include? Theres no specific map on our galaxy. I think a map on this is not possible.

perhaps you'd be better off making a map on the star wars galaxy.

Actually, its estimated that there are between 200 - 400 billion stars within the Milky Way Galaxy. Obviously, we are not mapping every single star system ( btw, they already made a Star Wars map on here, and it was decent ). More than likely, we will refer to territories as star clusters or maybe sectors. Though relatively, clusters and sectors are very small compared to our galaxy as a whole. Time to check out a galactic terms/reference dictionary....

http://workshop.chromeexperiments.com/stars/ :). but it only includes the stars around the solar system. I'm not sure if the map we're looking for even exist and if it does it's not in the public domain :d
